* As Mia prepares to head to Centopia in episode 21 of season 1 of ''WesternAnimation/MiaAndMe'', the camera calls attention to the fact that Mia's friendship ring has been left inside one of the gloves she was using while helping out with gardening. Naturally, this ends up causing trouble when Mia gets separated from her friends due to strong winds, since not only does she not have the ring with her, but because she doesn't have it, Yuko and Mo can't use their own rings to find her either.

* ''TabletopGame/Shadowrun'' on the Sega Genesis has a double dose of this. The first quest in the game is to scrape together 250 nuyen so you can get your brother Michael's stuff out of storage - it may hold some clues as to why Michael was killed in a firefight. Once you get his stuff, you not only find a credstick for 500 nuyen, but also a Doc Wagon wrist band, which summons immediate medical aid once the user's vitals drop to dangerous levels (like during firefights.)

* ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'': StateSec Chief Derek Almond confronts V at Dr. Surridge's house when V goes there to kill her, but discovers too late that, while he ''did'' bring his gun, [[ItWorksBetterWithBullets he'd left the bullets at home]]. Doubles as LaserGuidedKarma for him since he'd emptied the clip out earlier so he could threaten his wife with the empty gun.

* Discussed in HowNotToWriteANovel as a possible way to handle any situation where a reader might think, "Why doesn't the protagonist just whip out their cell phone and solve the problem with one call?" For example, having a character not have their phone on them because they were woken by a fire alarm and ran out of the house is completely believable.
