** The Bank has a second attempted robbery later on where two crooks stage an elaborate awards ceremony that engages the whole town. Then another crook sneaks into the bank and opens the vault by listening to the combination. Once inside the Vault, the crook is greeted by Andy who is sitting on a chair calmly reading a paper. The crook demands to know how Andy got in, only for Andy to point out the back door to the vault that the town put in after they forgot the combination to the vault.

*The four unhappily run into this twice in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. They take a penthouse suite at one of the most expensive inns in Tevri'ed, and the management promises them complete security. Of course they're attacked by [[EverythingsBetterWithNinjas ninjas who come ghosting through the walls]]. The next night they stay in the same room at half price, with the management swearing it won't happen again... and they're attacked ''twice'' (though not by ninjas, so technically management was correct). After that they give up on inns entirely.
**This is one of the reasons they're ready to check out the Guardians; Major Tallant promises that they won't be attacked by anyone once they're in Central City, and they're so desperate at this point that they're willing to take a chance he's right. (He is, and they get their first uninterrupted night's sleep since returning to C'hou.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'', Puss invites the RiddlingSphinx to guard the gates of San Lorenzo to protect its treasure from thieves, but she's often sleeping, away, or simply lets thieves in because they solved her riddle.

* From 1968-1985, US Navy Warrant Officer John Anthony Walker acted as a spy for the Soviet Union, handing over thousands of pages of classified documents in exchange for millions of dollars in cash payments. Despite two decades of espionage, Walker was never even suspected of criminal activity by authorities. He received an honorable retirement from the navy in 1976 and continued his spying even after leaving service, getting his son (who was also in the navy) involved in his activities as well. Walker's downfall and arrest only happened as a result of his estranged ex-wife turning him in. When asked how he was able to get away with espionage for so long without being detected, he said "K-Mart has better security than the Navy".

* ''Film/{{Lifeforce}}'': [[EvilIsSexy Space Girl]]'s escape and subsequent FullFrontalAssault on the space research facility faces no resistance aside for some (read: 3) helpless, unarmed security guards that do little to nothing at trying to stop her and are easily taken care of. After blasting the glass windows in the foyer, she calmly exists the premises into the night.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Elliot had no trouble breaking into the facility holding the Dewitchery Diamond. Later evidence suggests that the whole thing was part of a BatmanGambit by [[spoiler:Pandora Chaos Raven]].
* ''Webcomic/MoltenBlade''. Sure, they had a universal card key, but they were also shown bluffing their way past [[http://moltenblade.comicgenesis.com/d/20080819.html at least]] [[http://moltenblade.comicgenesis.com/d/20080823.html three]] [[http://moltenblade.comicgenesis.com/d/20080830.html checkpoints]]. Somebody really needs to be fired.
* ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'': The title character gets the party into an enemy fortress by claiming that they are maintenance people. He comments that the Thieves Guild would be unstoppable if they invested in coveralls with 'Al' stenciled on them.
* ''Webcomic/{{Nukees}}'': At one point Gav breaks into a military base by claiming to be a pizza delivery boy.

* ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'': Annex One has a single guard, Ira, who is mind-wiped so regularly that he doesn't remember anyone who works in the building (which might be an attempt by their superiors to make them remember their passes). On the other hand, the maintenance hatches are state of the art biometric locks that require matches on dozens of security criteria... which is a pain, so the maintenance guys just stick a comb in the latch to hold it open.

** In "Last Exit to Springfield", the Nuclear Plant's workers unionize and strike. Mr. Burns tries to break their resolve by shutting off all power to Springfield. To reach the control room to do this, he and Smithers traverse multiple security doors and pass various authentication tests such as a face scanner. Upon reaching the control room, Burns has to shoo away a stray dog. A stray dog that had gotten in through the old, broken screen door leading out to the parking lot. Overlaps with DungeonBypass.

* Wrestling/{{WSU}} had fairly decent security. The Midwest Militia was able to run roughshod over the company but when Jessicka Havok actually started [[TrashTheSet doing damage]] that cost them ''money'' she was restrained. When Beyond stripped the budget and, later, when Wrestling/{{CZW}}, [[NoBudget which has none]], took over, the new owners realized they had no way to stop Havok once she decided she wasn't recognizing her ban.[[/folder]]

* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): Referenced when Hoid visits Kaladin, but technically not an example since Hoid has more supernatural powers than the rest of the planet put together. Still gets a pass since no one knows that.
-->'''Kaladin:''' The guards let you in?\\
'''Hoid:''' Technically? Yes.
