* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' has huge lists of electronic and breaking-and-entering equipment which can lead to this situation as easily as D&D. Luckily, the Reactive Myomer Pack now exists - a backpack made of smart materials that can shift the desired item to the top quickly on receipt of a wireless command.

** This also happens to the [[MattSmith Eleventh Doctor]] in "The Lodger", when he's reaching for his Sonic Screwdriver to protect someone from a perceived threat, and instead manages to grab an electric toothbrush.

* The ending of the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Mata Nui'' Online Game has the main character pulling the various items he has acquired out of his BagOfHolding and tossing them aside during the final level, including flutes, letters, and magical light-giving rocks. Granted, though, his [[HeroicMime attitude]] is less "Now where did I put that thing?" and more "[[OhCrap OH CRAP]] GIANT BUG THINGS COMING FOR ME PLEASE SPIRITS LET THERE BE SOMETHING USEFUL IN HERE."

*''TabletopGame/NinjaBurgers'' you have to roll on a spread sheet (one die column the other for row) to see what item you take from your pockets. Along with this you have to declare all of your actions before doing something. This can create situations where a player tries to pull out a delicious ninja burgers meal and eat it, but then roll to pick up caltrops and then have to eat them.

-->'''Amin Damoola''': I have a few tricks under my belt yet, Aladdin. (''reaches into pants'') Behold! (''pulls out his boxers'') My shorts! No, wait. That's wrong. Sorry. (''throws them away, reaches back into his pants and pulls out a monkey's paw'') Behold! The Monkey's Paw of Mamoon-Ra! Now, how's that spell go? Gimme a minute? Oh, yes! Monkey paw, monkey paw, hear my rhyme, take to the sky and get what's mine! (''throws the paw and laughs evilly...then it flies back to him holding the boxers'') No, not those, the Sultan, you silly silly simian appendage!

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Aladdin}}'' Tv series episode "Vocal Hero" incompetent villain Amin Damoola turns the Sultan into a small golden statue. Amin does this when trying for his latest trick against our heroes. After getting the correct object, the object then (initially) ''fails on him''!
