Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' used a variation: There were times when either Slimer or Egon had to go ''into'' the Containment Unit. The danger presented here was that the parties involved would risk being trapped inside with hundreds of ''very pissed off'' horrors for a very long time. There's always a just-in-time rescue, but the writers made sure to milk every last second of tension out of it. (Never mind, of course, even with that last-second rescue, there's always the possibility of something else coming out...)

So the BigBad and his minions have stormed the secret laboratory and captured the MacGuffin. But we really need to show the audience what is at stake here without having the villain pass through the MoralEventHorizon. So one of the {{Mooks}} will be fumbling around with a vial of the stuff, it will fall to the floor, shatter, and everybody except said Mook will escape in time. [[LockDown The door will seal]], and the Mook is left to his horrible fate as the rest of his compatriots look on sympathetically. He has been Trapped In Containment.

* In ''VideoGame/RainbowSix: Vegas 2'', you're going in to rescue hostages from a building, then [[GasChamber the terrorists lock all the doors and put gas into the ventilation system]]. You are too late, and stand outside the door hearing screams and dying as a bit of the gas floats out through the cracks in the door. Luckily, you have gas masks on.

* The origin story for [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Doctor Manhattan]] involves this. He forgot his watch inside an Intrinsic Field Remover, and cheerfully asks his colleagues outside if they can open the door. They can only stammer back that once the door is closed, it stays closed until the experiment is over.
--> It's... [[{{Irony}} it's a safety feature.]]

** The Broken Steel [=DLC=] lets you [[spoiler:send in a radiation-immune party member, if you have one with you.]] [[spoiler: You can still go in yourself, but since the entirety of Broken Steel takes place ''after'' the main quest of the base game, if you do so with the DLC installed you won't actually die, just collapse and wake up two weeks later in a Brotherhood of Steel infirmary.]]

* Much of Creator/MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/TheAndromedaStrain'' is centered on this type of set-up. Near the end, one of the scientists is stuck within the contaminated area due to a failure of the lab's airtight seal.

* Much of Creator/MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/TheAndromedaStrain'' is centered on this type of set-up. Near the end, one of the scientists is stuck within the contaminated area due to a failure of the lab's airtight seal. This in itself would be bad enough, but the entire lab is built on a thermonuclear device that starts counting down when the lab becomes contaminated, and will go off if the "Lone Man" doesn't deactivate it by turning a key in a special station. Due to construction delays, the section of the lab the guy with the key is in doesn't yet have one of those stations, and while the seals between sections aren't doing such a good job of containing the virus, they're very effective at containing people.
