* In ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'', one can be used as a DeathTrap. Popping up out of the ground with [[SchmuckBait a big sign that says "Do Not Press"]], it compels low-willpower enemy agents to press it anyway, giving them a shock.

The final mission also adds a big red "Launch" button to the main interface when it is complete; pushing this one activates your DoomsdayDevice and ends the game.

* The cafe in the National Space Centre in Leicester, UK has a couple of full sized rockets hanging down from the floors above. Underneath one of the rockets is a normal cafe table with a Big Red Button in the middle saying "Do Not Press". When the button is inevitably pressed a countdown starts which then turns into a rocket takeoff sound with dry ice spraying from the bottom of the rocket that makes it look like it's about to liftoff. This can make for some interesting mealtimes when pressed by someone currently at the table eating lunch.

* The BBC wanted to know the date when the Large Hadron Collider would be switched on. There isn't really any one moment - different parts of the complex came into operation and were being tested at different times - but the project leaders decided the nearest thing was September 10 2008, when the first test involving a particle beam completing one circuit of the whole ring. The BBC excitedly named September 10 "Big Bang Day", planned a whole day of programming, and asked to take footage of the LHC being "switched on". The tests were all pre-programmed and controlled by computers, and the scientists just watched the results coming in - exciting to those in the know, but not what the BBC wanted. The BBC asked if they could build a fake button on a wall, and film somebody pressing it. The bemused scientists at CERN started referring to September 10 as "Big Red Button day".

* In ''Ride/MenInBlackAlienAttack'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Studios Florida]], each vehicle has a red button, which guests are told to only press in "emergency situations", as it will unleash a massive explosion that can destroy any alien adversary. Of course, the guests eventually have to push it when faced with a gigantic alien in the ride's finale.

* ''TheDementedCartoonMovie'' has a whole bunch of {{Big Red Button}}s, most of which cause StuffBlowingUp. One of the two that blows up the world is clearly labeled with a picture of an EarthShatteringKaboom (and Blah Guy [[TooDumbToLive presses it anyway]]), and the other is unseen because "the animator got lazy."

* ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'' has one of these as a round in the decision game. Stuck inside the healing room, Sigma, Phi, and Diana come across a big button with "Warning: Do not touch this button" flashing around it. While Phi's of the opinion that they obviously shouldn't press it, Sigma's persistent about doing the opposite of what Zero's telling them to do. It's ultimately up to Diana, aka the player, to decide whether to press it. [[spoiler:Pressing the button results in the [[SchmuckBait entire facility blowing up]]. Wait for around a minute, and the room's door unlocks letting the three get out.]]
