* The extra edition ''Anime/NarutoShippuden'' episode "The Directive to Take the Nine-Tails" begins with a scene straight out of Franchise/Frankenstein, with Orochimaru as the MadScientist doctor. The lightning strike used to bring his creature to life overloads the machines they're using and much exploding ensues.

* ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' gives a meta-example. According to some of the crew, Devastator had so many moving parts and was so complex and detailed to animate that his animation model ended up ''frying one of the animation computers''!

* ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' gives a meta-example. meta-example with [[CombiningMecha Devastator]]. Devastator is likely Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic's greatest accomplishment to date. The scenes with him had such a massive level of detail that rendering him took the ILM equipment to its limits. "Took the ILM equipment to its limits" as in ''smoking (possibly igniting) and melting one of the motherboards'' of one of the computers rendering him. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen He was originally going to be play a bigger role]], but the destruction of a very expensive computer put an end to that. According to some of the crew, Devastator had so many moving parts and was so complex and detailed to animate that his animation model ended up ''frying one was the cause of the animation computers''!critical failure.

* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' traditionally has "neurofeedback" -- whenever a 'Mech suffers an ammunition explosion, the pilot's neurohelmet that's a critical part of the user interface (but isn't connected so much to the ammo bins as to the machine's ''gyroscope'', which can in turn take damage without causing any similar fuss) basically delivers an electric shock directly to their grey matter.

*** One episode in particular had a character who must have possessed some form of MediumAwareness, since she knew that the best way to injure or kill someone was to blow up their console.

* Analogue era submarines had high pressure seawater running to various gauges in the control room. Concussion from depth charges or diving too deep could start these spraying with lethal force.
* Steam engines (specifically the marine variety) required the operators to work in the vicinity of the boilers and/or steam delivery pipes, both of which could rupture when damaged (especially at gauges and valves) emitting jets of super-heated steam.
