* A lot of poisons, sadly. Poisonious plants and mushrooms often don't look as dangerous as they are, or they are fancy coloured and especially children can think they look pretty. The poison itself often hasn't any a taste, so people don't realise when they're eating something poisonous.

** Paper is a major fire hazard. It is both easy to ignite and burns with extreme heat. Theses properties allowed it to melt the steel beams inside the Twin Towers.

** When J is getting a tour of the office, he sees a small ball floating above a machine. When he touches the ball, it goes careening at high speed through the whole building, smashing windows and knocking people over before K catches it and puts it back, explaining that it had caused the 1977 blackout in New York. The ball was meant for fun, apparently a alien ambassador released it as part of a practical joke likely not realizing it would cause a massive blackout. He thought it was funny as hell.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' had an item that was similar to the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' example above, but infinitely worse: a small goose idol that turned things into gold... at first. Then it started a chain reaction that was ''turning the entire world into gold''. The golden goose was held in a magic fountain that neutralized its gold-turning powers. If the goose was taken and kept away from the fountain's water for too long, it will awaken and turn things [[TakenForGranite and people]] to gold on its own accord. And if allowed to remain awakened for too long, the goose's gold-turning powers escape from its body, leaving it as a normal goose, while the powers proceed to turn the world to gold, referred to as [[ApocalypseHow "The Golden Death"]]. The only way to stop this scenario, obviously, is to return the goose to the fountain.

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' has Zoe explain why she always cuts her apples up with a knife before eating by telling a story from the war. They were in trench warfare, and were running low on food. Their lack of food came up while talking with the enemies in the other trenches, and shortly afterwards apples started falling into their trenches. Apples with grenades in them.

* As can a lot of poisonous animals. Species like the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granular_poison_frog Granular Poison Frog]] and the [[https://www.thailandsnakes.com/venomous/front-fanged/blue-malaysian-coral-snake-venomous-deadly/ Blue Malaysian Coral Snake]] are deceptively small and beautifully colored, but the former is deadly to the touch and the latter's bite can kill in 15 minutes.

Perhaps the worst of all, though is the small and cute blue-ringed octopus... whose neurotoxin-laced-bite is 1200 times stronger than cyanide and currently has no antivenom. Compounding this, they each carry enough venom to kill twenty-plus adult humans, and their bite is often painless -- meaning that until respiratory failure kicks in, a victim might not even know they have been harmed, nevermind that they are virtually guaranteed to die within minutes. Their interesting pattern of changing circles is meant as a deterrent for predators, but combined with its small stature (often less than 8 inches tip-to-tip) only seeks to reinforce the cuteness and perceived harmlessness.

** Notable in that in the [[TheVerse film-verse]], the other rings of power are more ornate, while the One Ring is just a simple metal band who's only noticeable feature is the glowing writing that doesn't even appear most of the time.
