* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'': Church is implanted with ten megaton bomb which proceeds to destroy the present and send everyone into the future, except for himself who instead gets sent into the past (don't ask). After returning to the present, Church makes several attempts to disarm the bomb in his former self only to be constantly met with failure, including making several copies of himself. At one point, his plan is as follows:
-->'''Church:''' And then I teleported back and just decided to kill everybody that I could see.
-->'''Other Church:''' Why did you do that?
-->'''Church:''' Well... seemed like fun... think I went a little nuts there for a while...

* Sheds can be broken into quietly by simply removing the entire door or even better the latch that the lock is on. Since sheds are meant for storage, they typically have the hinges on the outside to allow the door to swing out. As an added bonus, it looks like you are merely performing maintenance on the shed until you start hauling stuff out.

** Rider's status as the {{Trope Namer|s}} IS alluded to a bit, during the hunt for Caster. While everybody else is using the standard "Look around, we'll find him eventually" method, Waver goes for what he calls a more basic approach: He collects water from the river running through the city, and tests it for excess prana. Waver says it's nothing special and a very basic technique that literally any Magus could do, but Rider tells him that often the simplest course of action is the best. And indeed, they do find Caster's lair, when nobody else managed it.

* During a story arc on ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', Ray and Kreiger are attempting to disarm a missile filled with nerve gas aimed at an unknown country. Unable to shut it off, Kreiger points out that the missile doesn't have any actual explosives in it and the only dangerous part is the nerve gas itself, so they just rip the nerve gas out and let the missile launch.

* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' plays this one brilliantly. When Dies Horribly's party is forced to solve the riddle of the temple guardian, [[SpeakOfTheDevil Noe]], who will kill them horribly if they summon him more than three times (and homonyms such as "know" and "no", which are used frequently, will also summon him), [[TheBigGuy K'seliss]] solves the problem in a beautifully direct fashion: [[spoiler:intentionally summoning him, then [[MurderIsTheBestSolution ripping his throat out as soon as he teleports in]]]].

** In a later mission, as part of CJ's preparation for the Caligula's Palace heist, he needs to obtain a keycard held by a female croupier. The standard approach is to date the croupier and going through the standard and time consuming raising of RelationshipValues until she gives him the card...or CJ can just kill the girl, take the keys to her house and get the card there.

* In Norse legend, a man once gambled with a giant, and wagered his son. Predictably, the man lost, and the giant gave him a day to forfeit the boy, lest the giant simply kill him and his whole family. The man pleaded with Odin of the Aesir to save his son: Odin did this by hiding the boy from the giant by transforming him into a feather on the head of a swan. The giant caught the swan and in the middle of plucking it bald, the boy ran away. The man then went to a second Aesir to save his son, which the Aesir did by transforming the boy into a fish egg hidden in the roe of a shad fish. The giant caught the shad fish, and in the middle of counting out the individual eggs, the boy again escaped him. Finally, the man pleaded with Loki of the Aesir to save his son. Rather than rely on sorcerous gimmicks to trick the giant, Loki simply took the boy, and challenged the giant to come and get the boy if he still dared, whereupon the giant then promptly fell dead into the boobytrap Loki set specifically for him.
