* One of the protagonists in ''{{Film/Battleship}}'' is warned not to walk on and touch the giant mysterious floating structure. Naturally, since the character in question has the survival instincts of mayo, [[IWarnedYou he does both]].

WhoWouldBeStupidEnough to [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong touch any of that]]? [[RuleOfDrama Fortunately for the plot]], ''plenty'' of GenreBlind characters are, all the while ignoring their [[TheCassandra companion's]] warning of "Don't touch it, you idiot!" They ''never'' listen to them. Cue the rolling boulder/erupting volcano/invasion of {{Mooks}}/release of the SealedEvilInACan and all their complications/a snarky "IWarnedYou."

* Appears as a joke on the menu screen of the Codemasters game ''Death Stalker''. Option five simply says "Never Use". Using option five anyway causes the screen to go completely blank... for a few seconds. On reappearing, option five now says "Never Use Again".

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'', the party has made their way through Lohengrin Castle, encountering many strange barriers and orbs and finally finding themselves in a room at the top with a large orb that Emma is sure is the source of the mysterious force that's trapped them in the castle and is generated the monsters and such. Seeing it, Millium summons her large combat mechanism, Airgetlam, to smash it, even though the others warn her not to and they don't know what could happen. Sure enough, when Airgetlam tries to smash it, it's blocked by a barrier and ends up toppling on top of Millium. It's the same sort of barrier that went up when she had tried to smash the main door open, and only after this happens does she remember what happened before. And then the boss monster appears...

* As the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' is exploring an area with a number of magical artifacts, TheFlash picks one up, and accidentally blows a hole in the wall. {{Franchise/Batman}} yells at him not to touch anything, since it could be extremely dangerous. Pan over to {{Franchise/Superman}} and ComicBook/MartianManhunter [[CrowningMomentOfFunny quickly putting down artifacts]]. Franchise/WonderWoman, at least, was smart enough to not touch anything.

** In a previous season, while the Red Team is attempting to fix their jeep, Sarge tells Donut not to touch anything. Unfortunately for Donut, he ignores this advice and when Grif attempts to start the engine, Donut gets his hand caught in the machinery.
--->'''Sarge:''' Donut, I told you not to touch anything! You touched EVERYTHING! That's the exact OPPOSITE of touching nothing!

** Likewise, Dallben warns people not to touch the Book of Three. Bad things happen when his warnings are ignored.

** Likewise, Dallben warns people not to touch the Book of Three. Bad things happen when his warnings are ignored. Fortunately, the book seems to be somewhat sentient when it comes to people touching it. It punishes Taran's innocent curiosity with the equivalent pain of a few mere bee stings. [[spoiler:King Pryderi, on the other hand, wants to steal the book and use its secrets to gain power, and [[ShockAndAwe he is not so lucky.]]]] According to the backstory, Dallben himself made this mistake. [[spoiler:Touching it turned him from a youth to an old man overnight.]]

This {{trope}} is for variations of a warning Stock Phrase. Otherwise, see ForbiddenFruit and SchmuckBait (of which the BigRedButton labeled "DO NOT TOUCH" is a {{subtrope}}). Plus, if someone ever asks, [[WhatDoesThisButtonDo "What does this button do?"]], this is the ''only'' [[PoorCommunicationKills acceptable way to answer]].

* On ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', Nemo defies his father by swimming up to a boat, despite his warnings to not do so. When he reaches is, Marlin yells at him "Don't touch the boat!". Nemo does touch the boat, but on his way back he's caught by scuba divers, setting up the plot.
* On ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'', the first event in the Scare Games is a race through an underground passageway littered with poisonous urchins. The host warns the contestants that "you don't want to be touched by these babies!", to which Art, Oozma Kappa's resident {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, responds with "I want to touch it." When the race begins, Art immediately dives towards one of the urchins and grabs it... and blows up like a balloon from the toxins.

* In the climax of ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', Rocket gives Groot a bomb [[spoiler:with which to destroy Ego]], showing him which button, if pressed, will activate the five-minute timer before it blows and which will set it off instantly. When Rocket asks Groot to repeat his demonstration, he keeps gesturing to the death button, provoking this reaction in Rocket. [[spoiler:Subverted as Groot does, in fact, press the countdown button and all the Guardians escape alive.]]



* ''Film/JoeVsTheVolcano'': There is a large pipe with a sign saying "DO NOT TOUCH" however this is a subversion as Joe has never had the guts to actually open the Main Drain and see what happens. When he does, nothing happens. (However he did always wonder what would happen.)
