* In the cartoon version of ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'' the Tick is incapacitated by "The World's Comfiest Chair". (No one expects a reference to ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' in a children's animated series...)

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Prof. Frink discusses the possibility of turning a souvenir he found at the airport (a motorized ball with a toy weasel attached) into a weapon. At the end of the episode, the toy rolls onscreen; Frink panics but Homer, convinced it's just a "cute little weasel", goes to pick it up. Cut to a "The End" title card as we hear zapping sounds and Homer screaming in pain.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' villain Baby Doll has a variety of deadly weapons disguised as toys, including a doll with a gun inside it and explosive bouncy balls.
** Joker occasionally uses these as well. His trademark lapel flower usually contains acid, and he's been known to use marble grenades.

*** "...'''The Nozzle''' is calibrating..."
* Quackerjack in ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' tends to use these. Hell, Mr. Banana Brain is the only mundane toy of the lot, and he's still got some pretty distressing ideas.
** Which become even more distressing when he is [[SoulJar possessed]] by Paddywhack.
** Of course, don't forget that one version of Mr. Banana Brain was an inflatable failsafe device meant to destroy Quackerjack's toy kingdom, and several other versions were *cough* grenades.

** In the GrandFinale of ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'', Toyman is surrounded by Parademons. He promptly shoots them with...suction cups from his Nerf gun. One beat later they explode. (No, not the suction cups...)
*** Prior to this, he achieves his [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome crowning moment]] playing with a [[KillerYoYo yo-yo]].

* In ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'', Sheeta's Laputan grandmother taught her the "Spell of Destruction" as a NurseryRhyme on condition she never use it. Which she inevitably does when duly provoked by the BigBad.

* In [[Literature/NightWatch Day Watch]], Yegor, a powerful dark magician uses a foil ball as his weapon of choice. Seems harmless, right? Until he uses it to slaughter almost everyone at his birthday party, blind his light equivalent and pretty much destroys all of Moscow.

* In ''Film/MenInBlack'', 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.
** To a lesser extent, the Noisy Cricket is one as well. It looks like a child's toy RayGun and is smaller than J's hand ("I feel like I'ma break dis damn thang!"), but it is apparently the most powerful sidearm in the film.
*** According to [[WordOfGod the powers that be]], the Noisy Cricket was originally designed as a concealable weapon, but proved to be easily modified to the magnitude it exhibits in the movie. This was done as a form of hazing for new recruits.

* In ''Film/KentuckyFriedMovie'', during the kung-fu spoof, the main character sends a seemingly-innocent toy robot into the room. Most of the bad-guy scientists jump out the windows, screaming. "Toy Robot? Ah! A toy robot!" (This is a reference to ''Film/EnterTheDragon'', where Bruce Lee uses a snake to much the same purpose.) When one of the scientists realizes it's just a toy robot, a machine gun pops out of its torso and riddles him with bullets.

* The "Lok-nar", the evil green sphere in ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'', had a tendency to melt the flesh from the bones of people who happened to touch it, when it wasn't busy animating corpses. Although it ''does'' [[PowerGlows glow]]. That should have been a giveaway.

* ''[[SwordOfTruth Wizard's First Rule]]'' mentions a curse that turned all red fruit in the region into deadly poison, "[[MoralEventHorizon because children like brightly colored things]]." Richard, who was unaware of this, got (more) death threats from Kahlan by innocently offering her an apple.

* In [[Webcomic/GirlGenius]], [[MalevolentArchitecture Castle Heterodyne]] houses the "Fun-Sized Mobile Agony and Death Dispensers", bison-sized, murderous cat-like clockworks. When the castle is fully functional, it has complete control of them. When the Castle ''isn't'' fully functional, then you'd best hope the Fun-Sized Dispensers are confined to one room and don't know you're around.

It's sometimes said that molten sugar is one of the most dangerous things a cook will handle in their careers. The reason for that is because while boiling water will roll off your skin, boiling sugar will adhere to your skin like glue and continue burning you, which can actually lead to some truly gruesome injuries.
