* ''VideoGame/AffordableSpaceAdventures'' has Uexplore, a space travel company with a product allowing people to explore the stars affordably and safely (so safe, in fact, that their director of safety and her staff are on extended vacation because they don't need to work), with the prospect of owning a plot of land on an exotic and gorgeous newly-discovered alien planet... At least, that's what their advertisement says. The transport ship transporting everyone crash-lands on said alien planet (killing everyone but you in the process), the planet turns out to be rather inhospitable in a multitude of ways, and their distress pods are unreliable to boot. [[spoiler:And even after finding one that ''does work'', it turns out that the staff in charge of safety and handling rescue actually are all out on vacation. The player and everyone else who has successfully gotten into cryosleep might survive and be rescued, but a lot of people at Uexplore are probably going to jail for the deaths of dozens if not hundreds of people.]]

* Entertainment 720 from ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', a short-lived "premiere, high-end, all-media entertainment conglomerate" founded by Tom and his idiot friend Jean-Ralphio. It had no business plan, clients or revenues, and recklessly spent money like a Silicon Valley startup on crack, despite being located in a small city in Indiana. With Ben's guidance they eventually settled on the idea of being marketing consultants, ut by that point they had burned through all their capital, with Leslie's election campaign as their only client.

* OCP in ''Film/RoboCop'' is what happens when a corporation takes the mindset of American car companies of the time, and then transfers it to law enforcement. Pretty much all their products are CoolButInefficient at best, and they sink millions of dollars into flashy technologies that don't actually work while leaving the actual police understaffed and underequipped. The titular character is their only unqualified success that we see, and even that seems to have been [[SuperPrototype a total fluke.]] By the third film, they've fallen into such dire straits that they've been bought out by a Japanese MegaCorp.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine:'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCzODUHQSE4 With all of the crashes and runaways on Sodor]], it's a wonder Sir Topham Hatt's Railway stays in business, but the logging company on Misty Island especially applies, as it makes almost no profit since cranes like Old Wheezy keep throwing logs into the river.

* When the ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' uttered the words "fast crab" to describe an enemy in their ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds Link Between Worlds]]'' playthrough, they immediately thought it sounded like the name of a useless internet startup company with no actual products.
