Does someone asphyxiate?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more where someone asphyxiates.
This applies mostly to Space-set content where the body goes through significant harm and deadly trauma when sucked into the vacuum of space but can apply to drownings, claustrophobic environments or violence (which many are particularly sensitive to post the death of George Floyd). Not only that but these situations can be scary for children to watch, the suddenness of many situations where they occur can frighten adults and all viewers should be able to go into a movie aware of what they could see.

Actually🤓 no, but Charlie doesn't die due to trouble breathing, she's severely allergic to nuts, accidentally eats some, goes into anaphylactic shock and then on the way to the hospital, dies in a freak accident.

In Act 3, one of Monika's random conversation topics has her reveal to the player that (SPOILERS) Sayori didn't actually snap her neck when she hanged herself, but instead suffocated to death due to hanging herself improperly. Act 2 has a random event that is theorized to represent Sayori's suicide in this way, with the audio sounding like someone struggling to breathe and the screen gradually fading out with veins on the sides.

The protagonist chokes on a sub he eats too quickly, about halfway through the movie. His friend has to help him cough the food back out. Additionally, he has breathing problems throughout the movie, frequently wheezing, and later requires an oxygen tank.
