Creates the [[UnfortunateImplications unfortunate implication]] that preparing for the future will kill you or is evil and it's better to be lucky and have someone else do all the work for you.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}: Dark Days Ahead'', it is not uncommon to find basements containing a corpse with a damaged gun behind a sandbag barricade, and with several useful survival supplies such as tools, more guns, and food. Fortunately for you, it is usually safe to use this basement for yourself.

* ''{{Daria}}'' in an episode set during the Cold War got trapped in the nuclear shelter which Jake had built in the backyard. At first she's relieved there's plenty of canned food.....until she finds out [[EpicFail there's no canopener]].

* Dale Gribble from ''WesternAnimation/{{King of the Hill}}'' is incredibly paranoid and thus believes many doomsday predictions. During the Y2K episode, it was revealed he was hiding mass amounts Mountain Dew. [[PlayedForLaughs His pet gerbil floods the basement with the dew and ruins any possible situations from this set up.]] Ends up that the Y2K never happened, so a {{subversion}} of an {{aborted}} trope.

* On an episode of ''Series/{{Elementary}}'', Holmes and Watson investigate the murder of a rich doctor who was a doomsday prepper. The man had invested $100,000 in a high-class bunker for the rich complete with game room, lavish furnishing and more. However, Sherlock is quickly able to determine the entire thing is a scam as the boxes of "supplies" are empty, the walls behind the paneling are cracked and moldy and the door to the "generator room" opens to a brick wall.
** It turns out this was the key to the murder: The doctor had gotten in deep selling painkillers to a gang and needed to make up for a lost order, so broke into the bunker to use the supposed hordes of pills there. Too late, he realized it was a scam as there were no supplies at all and his partner (worried the continued selling to the gang would ruin thier practice), killed him.

* Robert Wayne Atkins created [[http://www.grandpappy.info/hfood1yr.htm emergency food supply lasting one year]]. The author also mentions that it takes a lot of room to store that amount.

Much like "Literature/GoldilocksAndTheThreeBears", they may be trespassing into a very {{crazy survivalist}}'s home [[ExploringTheEvilLair without realizing it!]] Odds are even that they'll manage to defuse the following armed confrontation, though they may end up being chased out or having to kill the survivalist in self defense.

* In one part of ''WorldWarZ'', one of the survivors comes across a truck absolutely loaded down with canned food, weapons, and other survival gear. In a rather ironic twist, [[spoiler:the driver [[DrivenToSuicide did himself in]], apparently from despair]].

* in the ''{{Mistborn}}'' series, it turns out that Lord Ruler had made a number of these [[spoiler: specifically in case of his defeat]]. They come in real useful when the shit hits the fan in the third book.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' has Helo and "Sharon" find a stash of food and anti-radiation meds in a cafe. Of course, it was probably planted by the Cylons.

* In the ZombieApocalypse game ''RogueSurvivor'', you can put together your ''own'' Survivalist Stash! Of course, how long you can protect it (and yourself) from the undead, bikers, gangsters, starving looters, and all the other psychopathic jerkasses is another question...
