* Many of the gadgets in the ''RatchetAndClank'' fit the bill. The Dynamo from R&C3 in particular can not only make solid platforms, but can also create a swing rope to use to jump between. The Electrolizer from R&C2 can fix nigh anything, with any technical fault, just by spinning a few dials to allow a current through. Anything from a hoverbike, to a computer terminal, to a BrokenBridge.

MyCarHatesMe is a vehicle-specific subtrope, as ContextSensitiveButton is for control panels, and SuperCellReception is a phone-specific subtrope. The superhero version is NewPowersAsThePlotDemands. Compare SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat. Not to be confused with MagicTool and GreenRocks, both of which are known from the outset to have multiple and possibly unknown functions or the GreenLanternRing which can explicitly do just about anything if you know how to use it. Remember, this is about a specific "normal" item acting strangely; do not add examples of all-purpose phlebotinum like Star Trek's "reverse shield polarity" and "deflector pulse" or Doctor Who's sonic screwdriver.

* The Stargate in the various ''{{Stargate}}'' series. Sometimes it closes just before someone "unwanted" is about to enter it and sometimes it allows them to go into the orifice. Sometimes it just stays on or closes for no apparent reason. It's a complete mess in what's otherwise a decent universe.
