* In ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'', WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic unplugs his computer after ItWontTurnOff while displaying strange symbols and messages from [[spoiler:Ma-Ti]]. After he unplugs it, the images just start coming faster and faster until [[ExplosiveInstrumentation the monitor explodes]].
* The EvilOverlordListCellblockA recommends hooking up capacitors and emergency batteries so those pesky heroes can't win at the very last second.

* Not so much ''dramatically'' ignored, but comedically subverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}''. Realizing that Plankton's computer-wife is loading the Krabby Patty formula, Spongebob dives for an outlet to unplug her. He ends up unplugging the coffee maker instead.

Added DiffLines:

** In [[RuleOfThree yet another example]], one episode saw an [[AIIsACrapshoot evil supercomputer]] draining electricity from the entire city to both bring machinery to life and open a portal to Dimension X for Shredder. The Turtles are at a loss to stop it, until it abruptly turns off. As [[VillainExitStageLeft Shredder hightails it out of the building]], April emerges from her hiding place and remarks that she defeated the AI by unplugging it. It's promptly lampshaded by Raphael who calls the plan "simple, but effective."

** In ''Film/GoldenEye'', Boris, having been "spiked" by Natalya to prevent him from disconnecting his computer from hers, rips apart his computer to break the connection. Considering the fact that he could have just shut off the computer, or, even easier, turned off the internet connection (pull out the ethernet cord or shutdown a router), the apparently thousands of dollars of damage he inflicts on the computer is really stupid.
