** In the first game, if you let Guybrush be recaptured by the cannibals, they'll progressively beef up the security of their prison hut, eventually installing an all-steel door with a motion detector, never thinking that there might be a large hole in the hut floor.

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCarribeanAtWorldsEnd'' has a return of the half-barrel hinge on a jail door, enabling Jack to extricate himself again after one of his hallucinated doppelgangers notices it, and he remembers "leverage".

* At one point in ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'', Ruby and Tom come across a door locked with a keycard reader. However, the door is made of wood, so the players just have Tom smash it to pieces with his crowbar.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' has the Death Star, a planet-destroying space station. It can only be destroyed by firing missiles down a small exhaust port which leads to the main reactor; said port is at the end of a trench. The trench is positioned so that the Death Star's defensive guns can't aim at attacking fighters, which is poor design to say the least (in fact the Empire relies on fighter support for point defense as standard practice). However, given the fact that the exhaust port was so small that only a Force-user could make the shot - and there were about two Force-users in the galaxy ''not'' working for the Empire at this point - it's not as Myopic as often thought.
** ''Film/RogueOne'' [[{{Retcon}} Retcons]] the design. [[spoiler: The creator of the Death Star, realizing that refusing to help would only delay the project, purposefully built in a small weakness that the Empire wouldn't notice but the Rebels could exploit if they had the Death Star plans. He wanted the Death Star destroyed more than anyone.]]

* Similarly, in ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry 7'', the door to the staff room is heavy steel and, if you get too close, about a hundred weapons emerge from the walls to point directly at your head. Security measures include testers for DNA, fingerprints, retinal scans, tongue prints, and urine analysis. But, it turns out, the latch doesn't work properly and you can get in by just pushing on it.

To be fair, the option isn't among the list of available commands on the door. You have to type it in.

This door is absolutely impenetrable. It's [[MadeOfIndestructium made of 100% Indestructium]], is guarded by robot monkeys with crossbows, and opens only to authorized personnel who pass the DNA test, pass the retina scan and present a valid birth certificate. Yes, no one will ever force his way into ''did you just get in through a window?''
