* Alluded to in ''ComicBooks/JudgeDredd''. The senior judges and tech division have attempted to introduce AI-controlled robotic judges several times to complement the over-stretched judges. This is always to the immense disapproval of the titular Judge Dredd. So far, every time this has been done has turned out to be a dangerous disaster, proving Dredd right.

* ''Series/{{Monk}}'': "[[Recap/MonkS5E15MrMonkAndTheReallyReallyDeadGuy Mr. Monk and the Really, Really Dead Guy]" intentionally invokes the story of John Henry in regards to Adrian Monk vs. the technologically supplied FBI agents. However, given how over the top the FBI acts, it's likely this was more of a parody of modern crime dramas, such as ''Series/{{CSI}}''. In the end, the escaping bad guy is caught thanks to a high-tec hand-held device... that the chief threw at him.

[[AC: WesternAnimation]]
* Mr. Harriman in ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends''; he's a MeanBoss who tends to treat his employees like crap, has rather stern (and often absurd) efficiency rules, dresses decades out of style, and ''really'' hates technology. Oh course, being Ms. Foster's imaginary friend, he's been around a ''very'' long time, having been "born" when she was a child, and is more accustomed to the old ways.

* Unlike the other ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'' has an {{Anvilicious}} Luddite aesop, where a peaceful and agrarian SpaceAmish race that swore off advanced technology is victimized by corrupt Federation officials who want to study how to replicate the natural phenomena that grants them eternal life. Although Picard did not start pulling rank until he realized that the villains were planning to destroy the phenomena too. This is a bit of a BerserkButton among some Star Trek fans, since Gene Roddenberry's original vision of the series was to promote the benefits and promise that technology could bring.

* In one episode of ''[[StrawberryShortcake Strawberry Shortcake's Berry Bitty Adventures]]'', Lemon Meringue gets a [[ThingOMatic Salon-o-matic]] that styles hair and gives perfect manicures and pedicures. Unfortunately, this puts her out of a job, and while she tries to find a new calling in Berry Bitty City, she soon feels the need to leave. Though her friends try to convince her to stay, it isn't until Strawberry Shortcake points out that the Salon-o-matic doesn't have the human touch that she decides to stay (and send back the offending machine).
