[[AC:RealLife]] * Some people have said that the second amendment of the American constitution, the right to bear arms, is there partly in case of the government being taken over by an oppressive tyrant of some kind. In this event the people would be able to overthrow the regime because they would all be equipped with guns. This can be seen as the founding fathers giving future generations of citizens a kryptonite ring.

-> '''Franchise/{{Superman}}''': I have many enemies who have tried to control me. And I live in fear that someday, they might succeed. If that should ever happen--if I should ever lose control--there would only be one sure way to stop me.\\ '''Franchise/{{Batman}}''': Do you realize what you're asking?\\ '''Superman''': I do. I want the means to stop me in the hands of a man I can trust with my life.

** ''TheNew52'' version is idealistic and ''reciprocal'', as, similarly to the Professor X example above, Batman includes himself in the countermeasures list, trusting Superman to stop him if necessary.

* In the BackStory of ''ExMachina'', The Great Machine (now the mayor of New York City) gave his two {{Secret Keeper}}s devices to cancel-out his ability to talk to machines. [[GenreSavvy As was his habit]], he explicitly referenced the Superman mythos as he did so. As we later learn [[spoiler:it's just junk made out of old garage door openers and doesn't affect his powers at all. He lied and gave them to his {{Secret Keeper}}s so that, if they ever betrayed him or were forced to turn against him, their plotting would depend on something that doesn't work. (Though a major plot hole is that it did work in the first story arc.)]].

* In Frank Miller's dark, [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture near-future]] miniseries ''TheDarkKnightReturns'', Batman [[strike: actually uses his Kryptonite Ring (the cynical version)]] has ComicBook/GreenArrow shoot Superman with a [[TrickArrow Kryptonite arrow]] to beat the crap out of Superman. This inspired the writers to have the {{canon}} Superman give Batman a Kryptonite Ring (the idealistic version).

** PreCrisis, Superman's heat vision could melt kryptonite, rendering it useless [[FridgeLogic somehow]]. This usually worked only on small pieces, though; in one instance a large meteor of the stuff fell next to him and incapacitated him before he could melt it.

[[AC:{{Film}}]] * In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', Batman gives Lucius Fox sole control over [[spoiler:the cell phone sonar system and the ability to destroy it so that Fox will trust him to use it only against the Joker. Though Fox didn't actually find out about the second part (cryptic instructions on how to "turn it off") until the Joker was caught.]] * In ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', IronMan and Bruce Banner discuss on how they developed "Veronica", the Hulkbuster armor, as a "[[GodzillaThreshold last resort]]" to stop the Hulk. So when it needs to be employed, it serves this function perfectly.

* In ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', Cameron installs a bomb in her head and gives John the detonator, in case she ever becomes a threat to him.

* In ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', Cameron installs a bomb in her head and gives John the detonator, in case she ever becomes a threat to him. She has good reason to worry about this, because it's happened to her before and nobody (not even the Teminators themselves) knows what causes a reprogrammed Terminator to suddenly revert to its default programming.

** This is also inverted by the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' : Batman gives each member weapons that simulate each JusticeLeague member's weaknesses because aliens have invaded and copied their powers. They call him out on being so paranoid, until Superman steps forwards and [[ProperlyParanoid cites the time he was mind controlled in a previous episode]].
