* In the original ''Film/{{Cube}}'', somebody speculates that the only reason they were put into the cube was because it had been built, and not using it would be to admit it was pointless.

** Dilbert also installed a voice-operated temperature changer in the shower. Which reacts to ''any'' number he says, regardless of context. Dogbert is disappointed to find he himself cannot change the temperature when Dilbert is taking a shower, but he can ask about "That movie with the crazy computer..." "You mean '2001'?"

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' where Buzz was being hunted by a creature that could possess anyone, Commander Nebula had him hide in the Master EscapePod. Unfortunately, the creature had taken control of Buzz, and used the pod's ManualOverride to lockdown Star Command and cause it to self destruct. The look that Mira gave Nebula when he explained the pod had master control over the station was priceless.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/HopkinsFBI'', the title character must find and disarm a bomb in a bank. The ConspicuousCG bomb he uncovers has four indicator lights labeled "Powered", "Armed", "Halted", and "Explode". The last one, of course, lights up [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin just before the bomb explodes]]. By then, there's not much of a point to it, is there?

* In one episode of ''[[CareBears Adventures in Care-a-Lot]]'', Grizzle takes over Care-a-Lot using the Caretaker II, a belly-badge-stealing ray that can turn invisible. Naturally, it gets lost while invisible, and while looking for it, Grizzle warns his minions not to press [[BigRedButton the blue button]] that releases all the belly badges, complaining that he never should have installed that button.

** Another Halloween special features Ned desperately trying to stop Homer from pressing a button in the Nuclear Plant that makes it explode and destroy Springfeild. [[spoiler: Ned was given no other choice than to kill Homer, but even THAT didn't stop him from pressing the button.]]

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', Stu builds a doll-making machine, only for the dolls it makes to turn out wrong (i.e body upside down, legs attached to head, arms at wrong end). It's later revealed during Tommy and Chuckie's adventure in the basement that the reason for this was because [[HadTheSillyThingInReverse it was set in reverse]], which Tommy inadvertently fixed when he held the lever for ballsiest to grab Chuckie and ended up setting it into 'Forward'. Still, one has to wonder why Stu never noticed that error, let alone put a forward/reverse lever on the machine in the first place.
