* In ''VideoGame/EmpireAtWar'' when you engage in a space battle above an enemy plant with a fleet that contains the Death Star, the dead space on your HUD becomes a big red button you just have to hold out until the timer counts down, then [[SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound Death Star, ready to fire]] then [[EarthShatteringKaboom lots of pretty explody doom]].

* Key of Awesome's ''Space Girl'' is trying to AbandonShip, but her ship's computer keeps debating the issue. Space Girl threatens to use the Manual Override, and we're shown a bank of red-knobbed levers labelled with everything from SELF DESTRUCT to PULL IF COMPUTER IS IN DENIAL.

** Hilariously justified in that the button itself is semi-sentient and sends out a mild psychic signal, compelling people to press it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2''. [[MadBomber Rocket]] builds a nuclear weapon with two {{Big Red Button}}s. They are [[NoOSHACompliance right next to each other]] and look identical. One will start a five minute countdown, the other will trigger instant detonation. This causes problems when Baby Groot is the only one who can plant the bomb, but is unable to tell the difference. Rocket gets extremely frustrated trying to explain the concept in the middle of a battle.

* Later seasons of ''SupermarketSweep'' featured these on the bottom of television monitors located throughout the store; finding one and hitting the button revealed a clue to the bonus item located in the store. (Originally, the monitors were touchscreens.)

** ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', in addition to the above, has various highly prominent red buttons in the areas outside the test environments. They operate whatever key piece of machinery you need to resolve the current puzzle. The Old Aperture test chambers also feature a version of the Super Button with a retro 50's look.
* The 1st ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' had a level that took place in a spaceship. On the console in the bridge is a big red button. What makes this more notable than most is the fact that the {{Action Command|s}} when you approach it is, word for word, [[LampshadeHanging "Press the]] [[GenreSavvy big red]] [[PlayingWithATrope shiny button?"]] [[SchmuckBait It's the self-destruct.]] It's also a ShoutOut, and proves that the Insomniacs watched ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''.

* In ''SinsOfASolarEmpire'', the TEC Starbase can be upgraded to have the big red button. With the second level of this, the starbase explodes in a sizable area (More than the range of most attackers), causing enough damage to kill all but high leveled, full HP capital ships.
