* German-made point & click adventure game ''Chewy: Escape From F5'' has a room on the Borx' spaceship where there's just a button on a wall marked "Press this button". Doing so [[AnvilOnHead drops a giant anvil on top of Chewy]]. You later paint the extra word "DON'T" on the wall [[SchmuckBait to compel a Bork guard to press it as well]].

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
