* In ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'', the heart of the plot is kicked off when Angel explains to the heroes the "three impassable security hurdles" they will have to overcome to steal the Vault Key from Handsome Jack: a competitor deterrence field (also known as a death wall), a heavily-armed bunker, and a door that only Handsome Jack can open. Most of the game from that point is the player finding ways to penetrate these, in preparation for the final assault.

* ''StarWars Film/ANewHope'' has the briefing before the attack against the Death Star that clearly outlines their mission of hitting the exhaust port and everything that can possible stop them. This includes the need for tactical computers to make such a shot, and for good measure there was an unsuccessful attempt mid-way through the battle.
