* This, combined with TheEngineer, is the primary role of the Technician class in ''{{VideoGame/PAYDAY2}}''. His skills lend themselves to the use and improvement of sentry turrets or sticky mines (or both, with the proper leveling). When the Technician isn't efficiently drilling open open doors and locked safes, (or simply [[CuttingTheKnot blasting them open with shaped charges]]) he's using the afore-mentioned mines and turrets to keep waves of police at bay. There are few sounds [[MostWonderfulSound more satisfying to a player]] than the sound of a distant explosion, followed by your character bragging about killing a [[DemonicSpiders Cloaker]].

* One of the serial killers you can play as in ''Videogame/DeadByDaylight'' is the Trapper, whose play-style revolves around [[BearTrap bear traps]] to ensnare survivors in as he chases them.

** As much as the name suggests, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Trap_Master the Trap Master]] is not this trope.

** As much as the name suggests, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Trap_Master the Trap Master]] is not this trope. (It is, in fact, an inversion: It ''destroys'' traps rather than building them).

* This is what Fred from the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' franchise ''wants'' to be. Usually, however, his traps never work as intended. In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', Fred's affinity for traps is exaggerated into a borderline fetishistic obsession. However, in this series, he actually ''is'' this trope and most of his traps actually do work fantastically, so the obsession may have its good points.

* Dr. Doofenshmirtz from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasandFerb'' does this in almost every episode. Every time Perry the Platypus comes in, the first thing that always happens is that he gets caught in a trap, which is different every time. While he's trapped, Doofenshmirtz tells him his evil plan, but then Perry finds some way out of the trap and thwarts him.

In one episode, in fact, he rigs an entire ship with them- only to fall victim to his own traps repeatly.

* RepairmanJack turns out to be one of these in ''Legacies'', in which he'd revealed to keep an entire ''decoy house'' rigged with traps, ready to spring on anyone who comes after him for payback.
* The serial-killer duo from Michael Slade's ''Ripper'' rig an isolated mansion with deathtraps, then invite a bunch of victims over for a murder-mystery dinner.
* Darian from HeraldsOfValdemar is the son of two trappers. When he needs to defend his home, he leads the enemy into trap after trap.
* Malazan sappers in the ''MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' are often deadly in their use of traps against the enemies of the Malazan Empire. It helps that they are one of the few factions with access to conventional explosives and have a well deserved reputation for insanity.
