* 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.

* In ''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.

* In too many [[PointAndClickGame point-and-click games to name them all]], there is always a moment where you use an important item and it somehow breaks, forcing you to fix it before using it again.

* A brutal version plays out at the climax of ''Anime/PokemonHeroes''. After Ash and the others disabled the [[LostSuperweapon DMA]] and saved Latios from being used as its battery, the Soul Dew acting as a power source for it became corrupted; Oakley [[TooDumbToLive touched it out of curiosity which caused it to shatter]]. As the Soul Dew controls the waters of Alto Mare, its destruction resulted in a colossal tidal wave that would've wiped out everyone in the city. It was stopped by the combined psychic firepower from Latias and Latios using the last of his power, [[NotQuiteSavedEnough which wound up killing him in the process in order to create a new Soul Dew]].

* In ''Literature/TheDiamondOfDarkhold'', [[spoiler:Doon throws the diamond of Darkhold at a pack of wolves to save Lina. The diamond hits the rock that Lina is standing on and shatters into hundreds of pieces. Luckily, The diamond is only a sample. There are exactly one thousand diamonds in a hidden room in the cave. The diamonds are ancient technology that turns solar power into electricity]].

* ''Literature/TheBooksOfEmber'':
**
In ''Literature/TheDiamondOfDarkhold'', ''The City of Ember'', the "Instructions for Egress" were mostly ruined by Lina's baby sister, Poppy, chewing on them; this turned what would have otherwise been a very quick and simple quest into a much more difficult and time-consuming ordeal as they tried to piece together what remained of the instructions.
