* In "Pizza Delivery" in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', Spongebob panics and floors a car down the highway until it runs out of gas. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, Squidward gets out of the car and kicks the bumper, causing the driverless car to refill itself and then speed away in reverse, presumably back to the Krusty Krab.

* The SR-71 Blackbird flew so high and fast that the airframe would stretch by several feet during flight. Because of this, the plane was designed with skin panels that, on the ground, overlapped and had gaps between them (meaning that the plane leaked profusely) and would slide into place and tightly lock together when the plane was at cruising length. After landing, ground crews would have to use blow torches and mallets to physically pound the airframe to make sure that the skin panels would go back to their pre-takeoff configuration.

** This is actually a ''slightly'' more realistic example, as the goal in this case is to force the core back into position as opposed to banging on it until it works.

* In a cartoon in ''Series/DieSendungMitDerMaus'' the mouse wants to make a photo of herself. All the photo machine produces are elephants. This trope doesn't help a bit. Why is revealed when the mouse openes the maintenance lid: the machine is a fake and the little blue elephant inside does the pics with crayons.
