*** Used and abused for this purpose in the spin-off novel ''Hydra''; the NID acquire the templates for the robo-SG-1 and create various subtly-reprogrammed versions of the team to try and do the job that the NID feels the SGC should be doing, such as taking technology from other societies regardless of the cost. This plan backfires as the various duplicates come to resent feeling like slaves, culminating in the creation of the psychopathic 'theta team'.

** SCP-294. A vending machine capable of producing ''any'' liquid that exists in this universe, as well as a few that don't. The Foundation uses it as... well, a vending machine for the facility it's stored in (albeit with some armed guards who make sure nobody tries anything stupid and/or dangerous with it).
** SCP-458 is a Little Caesar's pizza box that produces unlimited quantities of pizza (of the preferred flavor the person who opens it). The Foundation has put it in the staff room of its facility to save on catering costs.

** SCP-914. A large clockwork device covering 18 square meters. Items put into a slot are altered according to one of five parameters set. Rough, Coarse, 1:1, Fine and Very Fine. The Rough and Course settings tend to destroy items, the 1:1 returns a different object of equivalent worth and purpose, but the Fine and Very Fine return significantly better items of greater quality or complexity. A gun put into the machine, with the fine or very fine setting, would return an even better gun, possibly even stuff beyond SCP's current tech level. Even the 1:1 setting is fairly useful, as it could potentially provide translations of writings in an unknown language.

*** On the other hand, until the 1970s the rings were really able to do ''anything'', including wiping minds, acting on time-delayed and preprogrammed commands, transmuting matter, and mutating living beings at will. Really, n either Kyle nor Hal Jordan ever really noticed all the implications of the rings.

** Justified in that even Dumbledore was unaware of the Room of Requirement and only encounter it in the middle of a PottyEmergency... when it became a room filled with chamber pots. Between the portraits that would go off and visit each other to the architecture rearranging itself on a whim, randomly stumbling upon the Room of Requirements and never seeing it again was quite possibly the only encounter people had with it for years.

*** More to the point, Andalites saw morphing tech as espionage technology only and that most people who would use it would only morph one or two creatures that they would specialize in. Another factor is that Earth has an insanely high bio-diversity compared to the rest of the verse. Finally, the Andalites were quite hardy fighters in their natural forms (Ax... a teen cadet... once killed a T-Rex without morphing) so weaponizing other creatures wasn't a thought for them. Visser Three's various monstrous morphs conversely were only vicious monsters that could up the stakes... he was never shown using anything for the purposes of sneaking. Only humans diversified and used morphs that would blend into various different environments.


Added DiffLines:

** The Animorphs were fond of this as well. In one book, Cassie and Rachel morphed mice to get into a teachers house and get an assignment that Cassie had doodled love letters to Jake on. In another, the gang morphed parrots to bad mouth the food at the local Rainforest Cafe. During another outing, Ax morphed human... to go to a Franchise/StarTrek Movie.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11927332/1/A-Caged-Bird A Caged Bird]]'' (which the author admits was partially inspired by ''Series/JessicaJones''), Count Vertigo invents and distributes a drug that allows total mind control. It is used almost solely as a date rape drug, and Vertigo himself eventually uses it to abduct Laurel and turn her into his SexSlave. While the nature of it would probably prevent it from every being used legally or ethically, rape is no where near as much as could be done with it. Interestingly, Tommy later comments the government panicked upon learning about the drug and at the implications of what a terrorist group could do with it. So apparently, its full potential occurred to ''some people'', just not the ones using or selling it.
