* The Doom Slayer in ''Videogame/{{Doom2016}}'' has to bypass several UAC biometric locks by using the appropriate body parts from deceased employees with the right clearance. The game lampshades this in the interface when he uses someone's upper torso to access the BFG weapon vault.

* In SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'' amongst one of the Precursors' artefacts there are little one-time use devices capable of making planets barren wastelands. However, they need to be activated by a human hand. Attached to a living human being capable of reasoning its activation. Yes they tried other options, including a severed warm human hand.

* In a ''Weird Worlds'' story, when an elevator ComicBook/{{Lobo}}'s hijacked reaches his destination, the doors won't open. The elevator attendant explains that they're tied to his DNA, the sensor for which is several floors up, where they just came from, but the elevator won't go back up because he didn't have the chance to use the sensor when Lobo got on. Since there's no ceiling between them and the sensor, Lobo just blows the attendant's brains out, splattering his blood on the sensor.

** Played straight in ''MetalGearSolid4'', Old Snake had to take a dead soldier's gun. Since the gun only reacts to the soldier's nanomachines, Snake had to bleed the soldiers out over the gun so he can use it.

* An unusual example occurs in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', providing one of the clues to the true nature of the GovernmentConspiracy. Early on in the series, HalfHumanHybrid Kaneki is able to bypass the scanner gates used to detect ghouls. The reason for this is only revealed in the sequel: [[spoiler: It's because the scanners have been programmed to ignore certain ghouls, including the one Kaneki received an involuntary organ transplant from]].

** Averted in the Hoxton Revenge heist. If the panic room has a retinal scanner, and the FBI boss happens to be killed, then the stealthy part of the heist goes out the window, as the scanner needs an eye with a pulse.
** During the Boiling Point heist of the ''Film/HardcoreHenry'' DLC, the scanner has a chance to require the lead scientist's handprint. Unfortunately, the lead scientist is a little on the dead side, having been ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice on some rebar. Still, you only need his hand...
