* On ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', Ziva describes the task of finding a stolen defense system in a room full of computers as "looking for a needle in a needlestack". [[spoiler: It was on what looked like an obsolete laptop with a suspiciously fast boot-up time; the guts were state-of-the-art.]]

* ''Series/TheAmazingRace'' is a huge fan of this trope. One notable Road Block involved finding fake pieces of food amongst a huge table of real`food. The catch was that if you chose wrong, you had to eat the food you picked. This, obviously, became a huge problem when some teams made several dozen wrong choices...

* In one early ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' had Joker offering his services as a criminal superhero; In exchange for some loot, he would rescue crooks pinned down by the cops during heists. He stashed "Joker signals" at every potential robbery target in Gotham, and even built Joker-versions of Batman's vehicles. In order to get him, Batman discovered the signals and had the cops set off all of them; as a result, Joker couldn't figure out which one had the most loot to take a percentage of. Naturally, the first stop he made had Batman waiting to collar him.
