* ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'': In Episode 13, the fight over the Meekrob data crystal leading to [[LostSuperweapon Project Domination]] accidentally results in it being shattered. However, Meekrob crystal can piece itself back together if broken, and the scramble to recover the pieces leaves each of the three teams in possession of a portion of the crystal, leading to a DismantledMacGuffin situation.

* A minor one in ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}''. When the astronauts' carbon dioxide is getting too high and they discover the filters won't fit, Mission Control [[{{Macgyvering}} macgyvers]] a solution, which includes using a spare urine bag. Which leads to this exchange:
-->'''Fred Haise:''' Shit, I tore it. \\
'''Jack Swigert:''' Shit. \\
'''Fred Haise:''' Houston, what do we do if we rip the bag? Can we tape it? \\
'''Andy (CAPCOM - WHITE):''' They just tore the bag. \\
'''Technician ([[FacePalm facepalming]]):''' Oh, no.
** Thankfully, they have another one, and use that instead.
* In ''Film/BedknobsAndBroomsticks'', the characters have retrieved the Star of Astaroth, imprinted with the words for the Substituary Locomotion. But as they arrive home, they find the star has disintegrated during the journey. [[ShaggyDogStory And it turned out to be unnecessary]], as one of the kid's storybooks had an illustration of the star, and more importantly, the words to the spell.

* [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] on ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' with the FLDSMDFR kill code. As they fly to stop it, Flint almost drops the flash drive with the code, saying "[[TemptingFate Can you imagine if I dropped this?]]" The window then breaks and the drive gets sucked out. After much difficulty, Flint gets his father to e-mail him the code to his cell phone. He plugs it to the FLDSMDFR, activates it, and... it turns out his dad sent the wrong file!

* In the ''Minds'' arc of ''ComicBook/CerebusTheAardvark'', Cerebus' helmet, medallions, and sword are revealed to be artifacts crafted by the first of his aardvark ancestors, and that they could empower the aardvark statue in the Pigt temple to become a mecha-like monster that he could use to conquer the world. However, he had sold the helmet to have money for a vest and paint for his medallions several issues prior to coming across the statue, so this future never came to pass for him.
