* Satirized in ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgersInTheTwentyFourthAndAHalfCentury''. The supply of Illudium Phosdex (the shaving cream atom) have become dangerously low. Rather than developing renewable sources of depilatories, our IdiotHero and his Eager Young Space Cadet are sent to claim the Planet X (the only known source) only to end up destroying the entire planet in a pointless conflict with Marvin the Martian (also there for the same purpose).

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/{{Water 1985}}'', about a Caribbean island that strikes mineral water, causing the intervention of various outside governments trying to seize control of it.

As an American executive points out: you don't have to refine water, just slap a fancy label on a bottle and you can sell it for a higher price than oil.

* The whole ''{{Bionicle}}'' story has its roots in the Core War, a massive world war over Energized Protodermis that emerged from the core of the planet, the unstable nature of which ended up [[EarthShatteringKaboom splitting Spherus Magna into three]]. Which it is quite likely that the [[spoiler: [[TheManBehindTheMan Energized]] [[SentientPhlebotinum Protodermis]] [[EldritchAbomination Entity]] [[ThePlan planned all along.]]]]

* The CentralTheme of the ''Film/MadMax'' series; before the Apocalypse, wars were waged mainly for control of petroleum supplies. Afterwards, "Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice."

--->I remember it really stuck in my mind, in a very peaceful city like Melbourne, our southern capital, or some city, it took ten days after a severe oil shortage for the first shot to be fired. And I thought, what if it went on? That was one of the things when we did the first Mad Max.

*** In one episode, a planet is raided for ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deuterium deuterium]]''. The writers didn't do their research... although given the existence of things like the Oklo natural nuclear reactors in Gabon, who's to say that there isn't some way the planet could produce and/or receive abnormally large amounts of heavy hydrogen? Though the technology to convert protium (the most common hydrogen isotope and thus the most common substance in the universe) into deuterium is well-established in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' verse, so the ship running critically low on deuterium in the first place would require epic-level incompetence.

Perhaps the writers meant ''dilithium'' (the AppliedPhebotinum that makes warp drive possible) and just used the wrong word.



*** That's mainly because the Kazon are TooDumbToLive. The Borg refuse to assimilate them because of that. They're the only known species that the Borg have deemed to have absolutely nothing worthwhile to add to the collective. All of their ships are stolen from another species who had once enslaved them, and centuries later the Kazon have made absolutely no improvements in their technology.
