* In ''Film/ShortCircuit 2'', Johnny 5 replaced his shoulder-mounted laser with a radio that can hack things. He uses it to shut down cars by triggering their burglar alarms and pilot remote-controlled model airplanes. However, in the last few minutes of the movie where the villain is escaping in a boat, Johnny 5 tries to use it on the boat, but [[PhlebotinumBreakdown it doesn't work]] because ''it is not radio controlled.''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SecondChance2016'': Since he never really leaves his home, Otto is usually used as a problem-fixer by using his computer skills to manipulate technology miles away. He's been shown "hacking" into police cams, mechanical cranes, or anything else really if the plot requires it.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' one of the kids writes a computer program to do all of the school opening tasks such as make coffee, open the doors, and ''raise the flag on the flagpole''. Many viewers note the kids spent longer doing that then fixing their mistakes than if they just did all the tasks themselves.

* If it's a computer, Otto Malpense of H.I.V.E. can control it, hack into it, or just plain mess around with it. Examples include; [[spoiler:"talking" with a computer-controlled car, deactivating the Big Bad's space station while texting the semi-good guys, and jamming a grappler device.]]

* Taken to ridiculous extremes in the UsefulNotes/SegaCD game ''Panic!'', where a computer virus infects the World Central Network, and ''every machine in the world'', including vending machines, vehicles, elevators, and countless other objects, starts [[PhlebotinumBreakdown going haywire in indescribably bizarre ways]]. This makes substantially more sense than the rest of the game.

* Averted in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService''. For Merlin to get into Valentine's system, Eggsy has to [[spoiler: infiltrate Valentine's base, gain access to a laptop already connected to his internal network, then plug in a device to give Merlin remote access to the laptop. And even once he has access to the system, he can't do anything to prevent Valentine's plan, as it relies on biometric security]].

* This is how the events of ''Literature/TheFearIndex'' can take place. The book that was ordered online required only a simple e-mail with no interaction with humans. [[spoiler: The wantabe killer was contacted online. The conversation to the killer was ripped from files hacked from a doctor's office.

* In Dan Simmon's Literature/HyperionCantos, most of the computer systems in the world are connected together through the "megasphere", a multi-world Internet monitored by AIs from the TechnoCore, but some systems (notably military networks) are designed to be independant. It is revealed, however, that the TechnoCore can access these systems anyway. So, everything everything ''is'' online even if it's not supposed to be. [[spoiler: Which sucks because, of course, [[AIIsACrapshoot the apparently benevolent AIs finally betray humanity]].]]
** [[{{Literature/Illium}} Illium]], also by Simmons, takes this to its logical extreme. [[spoiler: The noosphere connects everything in nature to the web, allowing people to talk with trees as one of the less [[{{Main/Egregious}} egregious]] examples, in an ''early version'' of what would eventually become the Allnet. Activating said Allnet grants you the ability to see every flow and chemical process, properly named for your convenience, of everything everywhere on earth. You can also teleport whever you want, from wherever you want and to wherever you want, of course including nstant verbal and nonverbal communication with anyone anywhere. [[{{Understatement}} It's pretty convenient]].]]

** The First Cylon War forced the Colonials to take Everything Offline to combat the Cylons. Indeed, the Colonials became GenreSavvy enough to make it so that Nothing Is Online, at least for a time. If you look closely, you realize that indeed, almost nothing seems to be networked together on the TheBattlestar, up to and including the main guns, each of which have a cockpit with the gunnery crew inside aiming it.

* Played straight and averted in the ''same'' episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', "Shear Strength". Dr. Octopus hacks into and controls satellites, cell phone GPS locators, street lights, even a coffee shop cash register all because they have computers. However, he later needs the help of someone else to get some Homeland Security codes, as they are on a closed network.
