*** This maybe standared SPECTRE procedure. When Bond points out to Dr No that his IslandBase might become very vulnerable once his enemies find out about it, Dr No calmly states that he will destroy his base and move on once he has finished with it. It certainly blows up easily enough, but that's down to NoOSHACompliance.

* Early on in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbTheMovieAcrossThe2ndDimension'', when Phineas, Ferb, and Dr. Doofenshmirtz first meet, it's mentioned that the reason Doofenshmirtz's Otherdimensioninator doesn't work is because he improperly wired the self-destruct button. Phineas [[GenreSavvy asks him why it's neccessary]], and Doofenshmirtz [[CrowningMomentOfFunny slowly realizes that he doesn't need it.]] He also mentions attempting to take over with an army of robots...and put the self destruct buttons on the bottoms of their feet...

** Apperently all Irkens and S.I.R units have one. This is shown in the first episode, when [[CryingWolf Dib]] first tells everyone [[CassandraTruth Zim's a alien]]; Zim panics and brings out one of these, but puts it away, never to be seen again when everyone dismisses Dib as [[CloudCuckooLander crazy]]. And in "[[LotusEaterMachine Dib's Wonderful Life of Doom]]" Zim commands GIR to self destruct, which he gleefully does.
