* In ''Joker/Mask'' (a crossover of ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' with ''ComicBook/TheMask''), SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is going on a rampage with the eponymous artifact, until Poison Ivy takes control of him with a pheromone spray to the face and forces him to do acts of Eco-terrorism instead. Lt. Kellaway convinces her that it would be better to seize the mask for herself rather than control its wearer. She orders Joker to remove it...but this frees him long enough to eliminate the spray with a simple squirt of water and re-don the mask.

* Played with in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E9SliceOfLife one episode]] of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Doctor Whooves/Time Turner has an actual time machine, from centuries of tinkering, yet it's completely obsolete due to there being a magic spell for it. However, if it really is a [[Series/DoctorWho certain]] time machine, it may be anything [[CoolShip but]] "obsolete" by equestrian standards.

* In ''Film/TheBourneIdentity'' Jason gives Marie an ''extremely'' difficult and convoluted scheme to follow in order to get their hands on "John Michael Kane's" bill from a hotel, which involves counting her steps, doing headcounts, subtle signals, the works. Rather than do any of that, she simply goes to the receptionist and claims to be Kane's secretary. It works flawlessly, and Jason is [[CrowningMomentOfFunny simultaneously impressed, surprised it worked, and disappointed his plan wasn't put to use]].

* Cited on an episode of ''Series/{{Scandal}}'' when Air Force Two is hacked and on a course for Washington. Mellie openly asks Jake if he's behind this as a way of removing Cyrus, who's on the plane. Jake calmly says that if he wanted to kill a man in his 60s who has a history of heart attacks, "it would just take two drops in his drink" rather than crashing a government plane with over two dozen people on board and the eyes of the world watching.

* Xander's solution to a ZombieApocalypse in ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-32169-21/dogbertcarroll+Undulating+Flames.htm Priorities]]'' is for the group to rent a tugboat and a barge and stock them with supplies before simply waiting things out at sea for the next several months. While it won't prevent or stop the apocalypse, it'll allow them to easily survive it as the zombies will have all decomposed or been consumed after a while.
