** Wen Rodney accelerated his own evolution in "Tao of Rodney", he gained psychic powers, among other things. They were revealed to the team in a skirmish with the Genii where Rodney won the battle for them by thinking "wouldn't it be awesome if suddenly the Genii troopers' weapons jammed?" Guess what happened.
** Ancient tech is purposely made for this trope due to the fact that many operates via a wireless neural interface. Anyone with the necessary gene can activate it by just thinking at it.

HollywoodHacking is also similar, since while it is less overt, it has similar results, and is also likely to annoy RealLife technical experts to the same extent, due to the near-complete absence of logic.

* [[MouthOfSauron The Black Signal]] of ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' possesses this ability and uses it to the fullest possible extent in every single appearance: [[DoNotAdjustYourSet hijacking]] Masao Tanaka's emergency address, using Ricky Pagan's boom box to transmit a BreakingSpeech, and seizing control of every single Orochi drone, tank and HumongousMecha in the Manufactory are just a ''few'' of the things he gets up to. For good measure, he's even able to communicate with you by ''[[LeaningOnTheFourthWall hacking the game's lore]].'' [[spoiler: It's eventually revealed that he's actually a [[DigitizedHacker disembodied Filth-entity haunting the electronic systems of Tokyo]]; he can easily create a body of pure [[TheCorruption Filth]] for him to inhabit, but he prefers to work exclusively with tech.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' most hackers have to use a hacking rig called a cyberdeck which had to be connected by a [[BrainComputerInterface datajack]]. Then came the Otaku, kids who had a mysterious ability to interface with machinery and [[TheAlternet the matrix]] with nothing but a datajack, no extra equipment needed. Then the Crash 2.0 happened, and the Matrix was relaunched in a wireless format, and [[EverythingIsOnline practically everything]] in connected, even things that shouldn't be. The Otaku disappeared, replaced by all disappeared when the wired internet got blown up, and were replaced by Technomancers, who's brains have an equally mysterious ability to access the new wireless internet by thought alone. In addition, they have access to the Resonance. Nobody is quite sure what it is, but the best guess is that it's the raw "stuff" of the matrix, giving technomancers strange, impossible-on-paper abilities, including making simple AIs called sprites.
