* Likewise in ''Literature/{{Swellhead}} thanks to the hero's LevitatingLotusPosition (he deliberately sat on the trapdoor to shake the villain's confidence).

* The endings for Kuma and Panda in ''{{Tekken}} 5'' do this. Both have separate endings, where they are visited by someone. Two large buttons are on the CEO desk. The first drops the visitor. The second drops the CEO.

* Happens in the episode "Loo-Kee Lends A Hand" in ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower''. A running gag for the series has [[BigBad Hordak]] regularly dropping [[EliteMook Mantenna]] down a trapdoor and into a water tank (sometimes for annoying him, sometimes for kicks). For this episode, Hordak gets his hands on a device called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Time Stopper]]. Eager to test this out,he summons Mantenna and promptly zaps him freezing him in time. [[TheImp Imp]] then asks to activate his boss's trap door, only to be come absolutely crestfallen when Mantenna remains frozen in mid air... at least until Hordak undoes the time stop.

* Sometimes the joke is that the person who was supposed to fall through the trap door is too fat. Seen on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
** Another ''Simpsons'' one was when the painters moved Burns' desk, so when Burns sprang it, it opened but not underneath its would-be victim.
*** In another ''Simpsons'' episode, the trap door defies the laws of physics and somehow the victims fall from the roof of the very same room. "Smithers, it's doing that thing again!"
** In the case of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Mayor West hadn't planned on being menaced by an especially portly malcontent.
** In another episode of ''Family Guy'', Carter Peuterschmidt successfully dropped a lawyer through a trap door, only to lead to him defeating the Rancor in a ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' parody.

malcontent, but would have a "fat malcontent trap door" installed sometime soon.

* ''SaturdayNightLive'' had a fake-commercial skit where a CorruptCorporateExecutive's trap door malfunctions in various ways: (1) opening too late, (2) opening too gradually, (3) being too small, and (4) opening upward.
