* In the ''Literature/{{Lensman}}'' series, a Lens is this when not in contact with its owner. We see a few cases where someone other than the owner handles a Lens (usually another Lensman), but it's always with insulated forceps, gloves, and containers.

* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' the infinity stone has a tendency to quickly damage and then kill those who attempt to wield it without proper precautions. Luckily carrying cases that can contain it seem to be pretty easy to procure.

* In the Star Comics version of ''[[WesternAnimation/{{He-Man and the Masters of the Universe}} Masters of the Universe]]'' only He-Man/Prince Adam could touch the Power Sword it would deliver a painful magical blast to any other living being -including He-Man's fellow heroes. Inorganic beings such as the Horde Troopers were unaffected though. It should be noted, however, that this along with pretty much all of the Star Comics falls under CanonDiscontinuity.
