There is a set of stairs that has one step that has something wrong with it. Perhaps it's broken, perhaps it squeaks. For whatever reason, the characters have reason to avoid it. And, most of the time, they do. Until they one time when they are in a tearing hurry and they forget all about it. Their foot comes down on the defective step and HilarityEnsues.

* In ''AWrinkleInTime'' one of the steps on stairs (not stairs on the steps) creaks and Charles Wallace uses that to signal to Meg that he wants a conference.
* In ''SwordOfTruth'', the condition of the stairs in the house which Richard moves into with Nicci is bad enough that he launches into a full-scale tirade at his three thuggish, knife-wielding housemates, saying something along the lines of "put a shirt on and fix those stairs or you'll never amount to anything". Two of them listen, and do end up better for it. The third is another story.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' plays a variation: Tavros is repeatedly [[SweetBroAndHellaJeff warned about stairs]], specifically that his new robot legs are not fit for traversing them as of yet. He's got too much [[InsistentTerminology self-confidence]] to heed the warnings, though, and chooses to try going up and down the things to test them out. [[MemeticMutation Much as you'd expect]], his legs fail to handle them properly and he trips down them. Repeatedly.
** Which is is a reference to SweetBroAndHellaJeff by the same author.
