* ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' has a trap door built into the barber chair that often becomes a memorable part of every production.

* Played with a couple of times in early Creator/HaroldLloyd short ''Film/AskFather''. Harold is trying to get into his girlfriend's father's office to ask for her hand, but the father has some radical security measures. The first is a variation on this trope, a hidden conveyor belt that sends Harold zooming out of the office. Then when Harold gets back in a played-straight Trap Door sends him falling down a chute and out of the building into the alley.

-->'''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-''

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
