** 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.

* In the ''Series/FlandersCompany'' episode "Unlimited", resident MadScientist Caleb screws up while working on a machine, which subsequently makes everybody's superpower uncontrollable in the whole building. Hippolyte attempts to use his pain-powered HandBlast to destroy the machine, but it is protected by SomeKindOfForceField. Comes CuteBruiser Cindy, whom they ask to try too, in the hope the forcefield would be weak to brute force (her power being SuperStrength). Instead, Cindy just unplug the whole thing.

* Gibbs in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': A hacker is determined to hack the NCIS computers and [=McGee=] and Abby are just as determined to stop him. They are typing on the same keyboard once, and just as it seems as the hacker is going to win, the screens go black. They think that they managed to do it but when they all look to Gibbs, they see him holding the plug with a "duh" look on his face.\\\
This could be a great example of "even when they get it right, they get it wrong." If the hacker's attacking the NCIS ''mainframe'', and Gibbs just unplugged a ''terminal''... In any case, Gibbs has the right idea, in that the best way to stop an intrusion into a system is to get the system off the network (by either pulling the cord or the ethernet cable). Indeed, many governments actually isolate computers with sensitive information from the internet ''for this exact reason''.
