* ''Website/TheOnion'' has a few parodies of this, such as one video where [[http://www.theonion.com/video/manufacturer-recalls-hollow-point-bullets-that-fai,14319/ a munitions manufacturer apologized for hollow-point rounds not exploding properly]] with animations showing the problem. Then there's the fact that [[AccidentallyAccurate early hollow-point designs were notorious for not expanding properly]] which is a problem if you're a cop and you don't want the bullet to kill innocent people behind the target.

* Franchise/{{Starcraft}} does this trope proud. Many of the Terrans' combat machines are out to passively or actively kill them. Most notable is the [[TransformingMecha Viking]], a versatile transforming fighter which claims so many of its pilots, that they are known as 'Cherries' until they survive one transformation.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Krusty the Clown]] will endorse any product as long as the price is right. This has made him a favorite among manufacturers who knows that their product is toxic, infected, explosive, higly flammable, unsafe in any other way, or simply not working right. Clearly, it's easier to get an endorsement from Krusty than to make a good (or even mediocre) product.

* In Franchise/{{Halo}}, most Covenant weapons aren't particularly reliable, as some of them tend to overheat, and give the user a painful shock when they do. This is a result of the covies religious dogma: most of their technology are based of Forerunner tech and any attempts to modify it would be heresy.
