* Mentioned by a villain in TheGoldenOecumene, that due to the physics of the inside of a black hole, there is actually infinite space and computing power. It's never discovered if it's true or if it's blowing smoke.

* Towards the end of ''{{Shakara}}'', the title character rigs the Museum of War to trap the BigBad's soldiers that pursue him. The weapons he use are black hole bombs, each of which creates a black hole about the size of a basketball when it detonates, and immediately sucks up his pursuers.

* ''Series/{{Space 1999}}''. Moonbase Alpha discovers a "black sun" in it's path, but ends up passing safely through it and out the white hole on the other side, thanks to the intervention of a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien.

Some experimental shielding technology was involved, too.

'''Butthead''': So {{like|IsLikeAComma}}, a black hole is like, this giant bunghole in outer space. It's like, it sucks up the whole universe, and then it's like, it grinds it up and sends it all to {{Hell}} or something.

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''TheSimpsons'' ''Treehouse Of Horror'' had Professor Frink accidently create a miniature black hole with a particle collider. At first its harmless, but Homer begins disposing of garbage into it, causing it to slowly expand, and letting others do the same for money. Eventually, the hole sucks in the whole town, except for Maggie, who throws her pacifier at it. The black hole pauses, begins sucking on the pacifier, and flies off into space, leaving the rest of Earth alone. Meanwhile, on the other side of the hole, the rest of Springfield finds themselves on an alien world that has become enamored with the culture they've gleaned from their garbage.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Impossible Planet" features a planet in a stable orbit around a black hole; in the show the orbit is only maintained due to the expenditure of great amounts of energy to cancel out the gravity of the black hole. In reality, objects can orbit black holes just as easily as they can orbit any other massive object. That said, the episode ''actually'' seems to depict a planet that's maintaining a stable orbit within a black hole's event horizon without actually describing it as such. This ''should'' indeed be impossible without some fairly fancy tricks that are beyond physics as we understand it.

* ''Film/EventHorizon''. The titular spacecraft featured both "normal-space" engines and the "[[FanNickname Hell-Drive]]". The former was a (horrendously misnamed) "Ion Drive". The latter used an ''artificial black hole" to do a gravity-based spacewarp that apparently takes you straight through the [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Warp]].

Touching the black hole, rather than tearing you to atoms, gets your hand stuck in "black hole goo", then pulls you bodily in before (somehow) spitting you back out.

* One old text-based game, that appeared in a book of computer games in BASIC language, named ''Starbase 2000''[[note]]A game similar to ''VideoGame/StarTrekTextGame''[[/note]] both invoked and partially subverted it as two of the events you could experiment in the game. In the first case your ship was hit by X-Rays emitted by it, sending you to a close point of the map. In the second one it appeared complete with gravitational lensing, and sent your ship to the opposite part of the map. Another game that appeared in the same book, ''Quest for Riemannian'', played it straight it sucking your ship and giving a GameOver, complete with a LostInTransmission.
