* The Creator/RayBradbury story "The Veldt" featured an educational holodeck program about the animals of the African plains. When the kids begin bypassing the safety protocols, their parents get worried about how real the simulation seems and try to shut the simulator down. When they try to retrieve the kids, the kids send the lions to eat their parents, so they can stay with the animals forever.

* ''Series/TheOrville'', as a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Franchise/StarTrek'', naturally features a holodeck malfunction episode. However, it also deconstructs the concept by showing how utterly ''horrifying'' such a situation can be; [[spoiler:the holodeck creates a bunch of disturbing monsters and events in a CosmicHorrorStory scenario to test Alara's ability to overcome fear; what ensues plays out more like a horror movie than the wacky misadventures holodecks lead to on ''Trek'']]. Furthering the deconstruction, [[spoiler:it later turns out there ''wasn't'' a malfunction. Alara was doubting herself, so she forced Isaac to make a horror scenario and gave herself a temporary memory wipe so she wouldn't know what was going on.]] The rest of the crew is '''not''' amused by any of this and Ed tells [[spoiler:Alara]] straight up that the only reason she's not getting a court martial for causing this is because nobody got hurt.

* In ''The Star Kings'' by Creator/EdmondHamilton the League's secret weapon used similar principle. [[spoiler:During a battle Cloudmen would tap "telestereo" beams and insert recordings of shooting weapons. The energy output would be enough to destroy everything on the bridge within sight of a receiver, putting the ship out of battle or making it a sitting duck. Looks like telestereo receivers were built unreasonably powerful.]] Fortunately, all ships already had countermeasures [[spoiler:portable dampers that can suppress the shots leaving the receiver pad]] and started using them when the hero figured out how the weapon worked. Probably the League was not the first to invent those.

* In ''VideoGame/SpaceStation13'', this can happen to the station's holodeck by releasing the safeties on the console, usually by a rogue AI or a traitor's cryptographic sequencer. With the safeties released, the holodeck can generate anything from swarms of killer bees or a powerful plasma fire.

* In one story in the WhateleyUniverse, two hackers went after Team Kimba by trapping them in a sim without their armour or weapons, facing a group of pissed-off simulated attackers. The Kimbas manage to use their smarts to get out, but it's a PyrrhicVictory.

* ''Magazine/{{Ares}}'' magazine issue Special Edition 2, short story "Tales of the Sky Tales of the Land". The colony GenerationShip ''Argo'' suffers a problem during the 327th year of its voyage between the stars. A meteor impact disables the computer controlling the planet simulation deck (where colonists learn how to live on a planet) and a worm causes the backup computer to malfunction. As a result, several people training on the deck are killed.
