Very People Sit On Chairs, I think. I can come up only with one instance where this serves a narrative purpose. This is the only reason I didn't discard bomb, but I don't think one example is enough to warrant a hat. I guess this means the trope might apply in other Fantastic Voyage situations, but they don't all end with the miniaturized being sneezed.

  • Teen Titans: Cyborg has a virus that has had him acting unhinged. The Titans must cure him before he accidentally causes a city flattening explosion. Beast Boy, who's responsible for it happening in the first place, turns himself into a literal antibody and replicates, overwhelming the virus. Cyborg sneezes, rubs his nose, and sees the result.
    Cyborg: [dismayed and disgusted] Awww, that better not be who I think it is!

It's 100% People Sit On Chairs. It's just something people do. It would be like having a trope for "swings arms while walking."
