-->'''Bigweld''' (on TV): ''So remember: whether a bot is made up of old parts, new parts or spare parts, you can shine no matter what yo-''

And for good reason: [[SuddenlyShouting THERE'S NO]] ''[[SuddenlyShouting MONEY]]'' [[SuddenlyShouting IN IT!!!]] Hello? Memo to Bigweld! We're ''not'' a ''charity''! ''That's'' why old Fat-Face no longer sits in the Big Chair: He's a ''relic!'' So, I don't wanna hear another [''whiny voice''] ''"Where's Bigweld?"'' [''imitates baby whining'']\\

* When Fandorin sits down to confront the BigBad at the end of ''Literature/SheLoverOfDeath'', he notes that the heavy chair on a heavy rug that he sits down on won't move. That's because it's sitting on top of a Trap Door that the villain later triggers, sending Fandorin plunging into a death trap.

* One ''WesternAnimcation/{{Superfriends}}'' episode did essentially the same thing with its version of Batman and Robin, with the Riddler being the one constructing the trap; the duo find themselves in a room with a plainly-visible trap-door built into the floor, and just as Batman comments [[TemptingFate how obvious]] the trap is, the entire floor ''except'' the "door" falls away.

* In ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'', Dogbert recommends trap doors as a method of disposing of disgruntled employees who take advantage of "open door" policies. One strip shows him activating one from a desk, and another has him presenting one that drops the employee into rush-hour traffic to the PointyHairedBoss, who's dumb enough to fall into it himself.
