* ''Film/OfficeSpace'' has Peter, Michael and Samir take the printer into a field and smash it to pieces with their feet and a baseball bat. Michael really gets into it, having to be pulled away when he starts punching the printer parts. The whole sequence is set to [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic entirely appropriate music]].
* [[DarthVaderClone Kylo Ren]] from ''Franchise/StarWars Episode VII: Film/TheForceAwakens'' doesn't kill personnel willy-nilly like his predecessor did: Whenever he succumbs to anger, he instead whips out his lightsaber and vents his frustration on a nearby piece of hardware (console, etc.), slicing it to charred ribbons. The staff are apparently familiar with this, as two Stormtroopers can tell just from the sound that they should leave instead of investigating further.
* In the "One of My Turns" scene in ''Film/TheWall'', Pink goes nuts and breaks everything in his hotel room, his aggression focused seemingly more at objects around him like his TV and his guitars than against the groupie who just happens to be in the way.

* Gianni Rodari's story ''Planet of Christmas Trees'' features a planet on which all work is done by robots and machines and everyone has access to any resources the want. So, for the case when people need to work off some frustration, or kids need to satisfy their breaking impulses, they just go to a castle in the middle of the city which is full of things to break down. The castle are constantly being rebuilt, because once the dishes and furniture run out, it's time for the walls.
* In ''Creator/RobertSheckley'''s "A Ticket to Tranai", the titular "Utopia" planet solves the problem of domestic violence by, among other things, producing cheap {{Robot Maid}}s which can be kicked apart when a person feels frustrated. The protagonist finds a job as a robot designer, and they tell him to make a robot durable enough for daily work, yet weak enough to be smashed apart by a single kick. He ultimately solves the problem by [[spoiler:using special plastic which breaks apart when exposed to a certain chemical and selling a pair of shoes coated with the chemical along with each robot]].
