* In ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'', Film/JamesBond is in a elevator, and suddenly straddles the sides of the floor, expecting it to be a trap door. He's gassed unconscious instead. In ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'', the elevator really does have a trap door -- we see it used early in the film. And this time, Bond straddles it and avoids falling in.

* In ''OverlordII'' there is a RunningGag where LesCollaborateurs turn up at the [[PlayerHeadquarters Netherworld Tower]] and give you info that kicks off story-related quests, then start making obnoxious requests of you and get dropped down a trap door for their trouble. After a while a mysterious hooded figure appears to deliver a quest of her own and simply levitates above trapdoor when the Overlord opens it. ([[spoiler: This is actually the mistress of the previous game's Overlord, i.e. your mother.]])
