* The phrase "Pulling a Homer" (meaning to succeed despite stupidity) was introduced in ''TheSimpsons'' after Homer stopped a nuclear reactor meltdown by randomly guessing which button activated the Manual Override. Twice. Using Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe, no less. To be fair though, if he did the same Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe each time he would always get the right button.

* In the ''CiaphasCain'' novel ''The Traitor's Hand'', Cain foils an assassination attempt, only to discover a bomb built into the aircar used in the ram raid attack. He calls for help from an expert, prompting the following amusing conversation:
--->'''Cogitator Ikmenedies:''' Are there wires leading to the promethium flask?
--->'''Cain:''' Yes, two.
--->'''Ikmenedies:''' Then it should be simple. All you have to do is cut the red one.
--->'''Cain:''' They're both purple.
--->'''Ikemenedies:''' <{{beat}}> You'll just have to use your best judgment.

* ''Film/{{Gravity}}''. The female protagonist has to reenter the Earth's atmosphere using the capsule on a Chinese space station whose orbit is already decaying, but the instructions in the capsule are all in Chinese. In the end she just has to push buttons and hope she's hitting the right ones.

* In a ''{{Stargate SG-1}}'' episode, a meteor is heading towards Earth, but they find out that setting off a nuke to deflect it would only make things worse so they need to deactivate it. However the bomb gets damaged and refuses to shut down so Jack is told to open it and cut the Red wire, so this trope is almost subverted because he is given clear instructions to cut a wire, but here's the kicker - it turns out all the wires are ''yellow'' and he has to guess.
