* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' tends to end up this way, particularly in {{Succession Game}}s. When one ruler builds a DeathTrap, and the next either breaks it, [[FailsafeFailure breaks the off switch]], or forgets about it entirely, it can only lead to disaster. The words "[[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove Why do we even]] ''[[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove have]]'' [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove that lever?]]" would not be out of place here, either -- legendary fortress {{Boatmurdered}} had one switch that flooded a siege workshop, for no apparent reason. The real DeathTrap was used [[Manga/DeathNote Exactly As Planned]] -- to ''cover the world with magma''.

*** Justified. When there's decompression or invasion going on, saving the rest of the ship is more important than saving one member of the crew from a gruesome death. And those massive doors certainly look like they can bisect droids and organics alike without much trouble. As for the quadruple-square thing... yeah, that's just for show.



*** Justified. Podracing is essentially vehicular gladiatorial combat; it's loved precisely '''because''' it's ridiculously dangerous and often lethal. (Death and serious injury were so common in {{chariot rac|e}}ing, its Real Life inspiration, that it was considered ''part of the show''.) It's quite possible that the ludicrous design of the podracers is to make them ''more'' dangerous. It is, after all, established every time we see a speeder that the galaxy has far safer ways of engineering flying vehicles, and when one company comes out with a podracer that [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/FG_8T8-Twin_Block2_Special follows saner principles]], the result is called "twisted" by everyone else.

* The RMS ''Titanic'' was actually a subversion of this. The ship was in full compliance with the maritime safety regulations of the day. Ships of over 10,000 tons required sixteen liftboats and ''Titanic'' actually carried four more than required. However, the problem was that said regulations had last been updated eighteen years prior and failed to take into account the size-increase in shipbuilding.

** If only it stopped at Mr. Burns. His employees seem to be the most incompetent gaggle of nitwits ever created. They hired ''Homer Simpson'' for crying out loud, and have not fired him after numerous accidents that came within a hair's breadth of looking like the sordid offspring of a threeway with Chernobyl, Three-Mile Island and the Love Canal... Then there's Lenny, who refitted the soda machines in Sector 7G to dispense beer if one asked for club soda. The only sane employee they ever had (Frank Grimes) killed himself after Homer showed him up during a kids' nuclear plant design contest. Homer was once able to cause a nuclear meltdown in a test environment containing no nuclear materials. The worst part is, Homer is the one in charge of the safety (which he got after Homer, ironically, led a public safety campaign against the nuclear plant. Prior to that, Homer was just a waste handler).

* Invoked by ''{{Starcraft}}''. Terran buildings are generally built haphazardly and have a large number of tanks and lines containing various volatile and/or flammable materials. When the buildings take damage, those tanks can rupture and start fires in the building. Heavily damaged buildings can see chain reactions as the spreads to more tanks, eventually causing the entire building to explode.

* The Challenger Disaster is a result of this. NASA knew about the flawed rocket booster ahead of time, but it had never caused anything to go wrong prior to the one infamous time it did. It was found that management simply disregarded what the engineers said, and the rest is history.

** To begin with, Duelist Kingdom. The island (which is somewhere in the South Pacific, in the middle of nowhere) is barely adequate for a dueling tournament. No facilities to provide for food or hygienic needs (as mentioned in one episode) and the stations have ''flame thrower devices'' that the special Eliminators can access. It's a wildfire waiting to happen. The castle is a little better, although the roof and balconies (where Yugi faces Kaiba) have no guardrails or anything else that could prevent an accidental death from a fall. (Or [[StopOrIShootMyself someone trying to do it on purpose]]). And speaking of whom...
** Dueling atop a flying zeppelin may be dramatic, but again, no safety precautions whatsoever. Jonouchi nearly falls to his doom right before the duel with Rashid. Not to mention Kaiba is ''way'' to mule headed and concerned with gaining the God Cards to order it to land, even if three contestants are unconscious and possibly dying. Alcatraz is just as bad; it's a tower built on a demolition site, designed to resemble a shining tower rising out of a ruin to symbolize Kaiba's triumph. Dramatic again, but not exactly safe.

** One of the earliest Superman comics had him dealing with a mine owner who couldn't be bothered to properly maintain the safety equipment in his mines until Superman tricked him into spending some time in said mine and then orchestrated a cave-in so the owner could experience just what life was like in a decidedly unsafe mine (This issue predated the existence of OSHA by nearly 40 years, but the point still stands).

** The background reveals that there was already and incident were one of the mascots bit off part of a patrons head in 87. And the place is still open even though there was a case of a 5 children being murdered, and stuffed in the mascots. [[spoiler:Fortunately the place is set to close by years end.]]

*** This game also reveals some backstory about what Springtrap used to be, which is probably most Egregious example: [[spoiler: He used to be hybrid of animatronic suit and costume that people could use. Problem is, way they got spring locks out of way... wasn't very safe. Even BREATHING at them could loosen them and kill/injure user. So, Springtrap was retired and hidden from almost everyone, including night guards and animatronics themself. However, [[SerialKiller Purple Guy]] found it and tried to hide into it. Results... [[HoistByHisOwnPetard weren't]] [[AssholeVictim pretty]].]]
