* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. When Task Force X are infiltrating the Watchtower, Deadshot and Plastique have an OhCrap when Green Lantern steps into the elevator with them. Deadshot shows his NervesOfSteel by asking if Green Lantern could get Hawkgirl's autograph for him. Green Lantern curtly refuses and leaves (having broken up with Hawkgirl). Once she's overcome her shock, Plastique is impressed.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mTVuo8nCME In a deleted scene]] from ''Film/TheLastJedi'', while infiltrating the ''Supremacy'' disguised as First Order officers, Finn, Rose and TJ have to take an elevator with a bunch of Stormtroopers. It starts with the usual elevator routine, but gets even tenser when one of the Stormtroopers (Creator/TomHardy in an uncredited cameo) recognizes Finn. [[spoiler:Except he's unaware of Finn's defection (the First Order covered it to not give other soldiers ideas) and just congratulates Finn for his "promotion".]]

[[TruthInTelevision In several European cultures, there is an unspoken code of behavior that applies inside elevators,]] and also sometimes on trains and other modes of public transportation: when someone enters an elevator, the custom is to face the front and stand in silence whilst absentmindedly watching the floor numbers change. If there ''is'' any conversation, it amounts only to small talk, such as TalkingAboutTheWeather. An individual who breaks with this custom, for example facing the other passengers, is often a source of considerable unease to the other individuals in the elevator with you. The protocol does vary a lot between cultures, even between neighboring countries; for example, the UK has the elevator protocol, while almost none of Europe does. Depending on where you are, you might be expected to greet the other people in the elevator and/or make light conversation, or to completely ignore them. [[JustifiedTrope This is apparently a part of basic animal behavior, too]]: primates in small enclosed spaces instinctively avoid drawing attention to themselves. The cultural differences in elevator protocol reflect differences in what behaviour is inconspicuous. And yes, primates -- monkeys go quiet too, but rats tend to [[ElevatorActionSequence fight]].

* ''Film/SpiderMan2'', where Peter Parker suddenly loses his powers at the top of a building, and can't get out by web swinging or sticking to the walls. Thus, he is forced to use an elevator whilst in full costume when another individual is present. Small talk follows, culminating in some observations about the way the suit tends to ride up, since it's assumed he's just [[YourCostumeNeedsWork a guy in a Spider-Man costume]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CHuRJXZ718 An alternate take]] occurs in the extended cut, where the individual does think that he is the real thing, and starts suggesting ways he could improve his public image.

* There was one of these in a ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' comic: a small, nebbishly kind of fellow gets onto the elevator complaining audibly about his lot in life. Darkseid is impassively standing inside. The civilian rambles on for a few more seconds until he realizes who he's actually in the lift with, at which point an Uncomfortable Elevator Moment comes about.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'' episode "Eye Of The Storm," Lance hears that the Castle has a pool and goes into an elevator wearing nothing but swimming trunks to get there. Just as the door's about to close, it's stopped by [[UnknownRival Keith]], also wearing swimming trunks, having had the same idea. The two are standing next to each other, agreeing that they will try to stay away from each other as much as they can, when the elevator gets stuck, and the lights go out. The scene ends with [[ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes two pairs of eyes]] staring up in confusion, before changing to annoyed expressions.

* French comedic trio "Les Inconnus" has a short sketch based on this: a dozen people enter an elevator with the music and filming style evoking a suspense or horror setting. Each person solemnly announces which floor they're going to, with the appropriate dramatic close-up.... [[MoodWhiplash Then we hear a fart]], and everybody's now going to the second floor.

** There's such a moment in "Trials and Tribble-ations". Time-travelers Bashir and O'Brien try to take a turbolift in [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS's]] ''Enterprise'', but them being unused to 23rd century technology, it doesn't react to their verbal commands. They're about to tamper with the mechanism when a woman steps in and starts the turbolift properly, by holding one of the handles before giving her command. Bashir then whispers to O'Brien, "I won't tell anyone if you won't."
