* The {{Creepypasta}} "Real Action Toys" is about a toy company that released a full bunch of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' deadly toys, starting from Mario and Luigi rubber figure with hard heads that can easily hurt children, to Bowser and Bowser Jr. toys spitting real fire up to a Koopa Troopa toy that bounces and spins around [[UpToEleven while shooting fireballs and rusty nails and also emitting seizure-inducing lights]].

** The [[http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2011/11/chris-dumm/obscure-object-of-desire-austin-magic-pistol/ Austin Magic Pistol]] fired ping-pong balls at potentially deadly velocities using an explosive mix of water and calcium carbide. Not only did it produce an impressive fireball from the muzzle, but emitted fire and sparks from the breech that would singe the shooter's wrist, and could melt their face if the breech cap blew off.

*** The ''Transformers Classics'' got around this problem by having [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/File:Megatronclassicstoy.jpg Megatron]] transform into a gun resembling a [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/File:N-strike_maverick.jpg Nerf N-Strike Maverick]].

* The Boyfriend Helmet in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' -- yes, a ''[[MindManipulation mind control]] device'' '''marketed as a toy for children.''' Made even worse as the helmet can actually ''[[BodyHorror fuse to the victim's head,]] guaranteeing permanent mind control.''

* Subverted in the episode "Tag Sale, You're It" of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' When Dr. Venture holds a yard sale, Henchman 21 almost cries upon seeing a ''real lightsaber'' for sale. Dr. Venture says it is a prototype, rejected by {{Creator/Kenner}} for being too costly and by the military for being a sword. 21 buys it immediately, and when an EscalatingBrawl breaks out he decides to use his new toy to face down Venture's bodyguard. The sounds and visuals are appropriately badass, but when a swing connects, the beam turns out to be harmless, and he flees in terror.

* Krogan in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' have a children's board game called Giant Fire-Breathing [[SandWorm Thresher Maws]] of Doom. It's played with actual flamethrowers. As a demonstration of how tough krogan are, they're affected by a SterilityPlague, at least one krogan character is annoyed at how krogan children are "coddled" as a result, and ''they play children's games with weapons that inhibit their HealingFactor''.

* The ''VideoGame/WarioLand 4'' Wario car action figure-like enemies. Oh the irony of a toy based on Wario driving his car being something that's dangerous enough to kill him in the toy themed levels. It also had a metal spike on the front (hence how it was so dangerous), could drive through more spikes, and was apparently a pretty good throwing weapon.

* ''Film/SmallSoldiers'': This is the premise of the movie. The reason the toys are so dangerous is that they used military-grade artificial intelligence so the toys could "play back". AIIsACrapshoot. They might've been safe had they bothered to program in UsefulNotes/TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar. As it was, the soldiers came out as the single-minded psychopaths they designed (see the lawn darts below for another such brainfart). Ironically, though, [[DarkIsNotEvil the monstrous, presumably intended to be "villainous" Gorgonite toys are rather personable]] since they started out as educational toys.

* The sci-fi movie ''Film/{{Evolver}}'' features a robotic AI toy that just happens to have been installed with a state-of-the-art weapons-grade military AI chip; The robot is meant to be a harmless children's game, but it soon begins learning how to arm itself with more lethal weapons. The Evolver unit was originally a military battle robot prototype that was re-purposed after killing people in a field test. It got made into the grand prize for the top scorer of the Evolver VR Game so that they could play it in real life. The problem starts when its military programming that was left in gets reactivated by the protagonist's sister dramatically "dying" after it scores a "kill" on her and she gets back up. It realizes that its "weapons" aren't lethal, as they're "supposed" to be; to it, the Evolver game is a live fire War Game and refits itself to compensate.

** Other dangerous toys include: Chinpokomon (the toys themselves weren't dangerous, but they were pawns in a plot to brainwash kids into bombing Pearl Harbor), Wild Wacky Action Bike (the kid who tried to ride it in the commercial crashed into the underside of a truck), Alabama Man and Wife (teaches boys to be drunken, wife-beating trailer trash), Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset (teaches girls to be like Paris Hilton), and a make-your-own Mr. Hankey play set, whose commercial was filmed in live-action.
