* Averted in StuartAshen's review of the Packbuster (a multitool for opening the packaging around products). The blister pack has a notch cut into one corner so you can open it without using scissors or the Packbuster. As Stuart puts it: "Extra bonus points for that; that is good. There's nothing like buying some sort of device for packages and ''not being able to get in the package.''"

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap'', Malon lost the key to Lon Lon Ranch, and the spare key is inside the house. The solution is to shrink down to Minish size, enter the house through a small hole, pick up the key inside and bring it to him.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' episode "My New Wand", Star's wand goes crazy and seals itself in her closet along with the spellbook. Since Star unlocks the closet with the wand, this presents a problem. She has to learn to channel magic without the wand's help to solve the problem.

* In the third episode of ''Anime/CowboyBeBop'' this is played straight. The only way to decrypt the special decryption program is with a cypher key that was itself encrypted, and only the protagonists know where the key is.

*** A later shrine has a literal example, where a chest containing the key you need to get into a cell is inside the cell. The solution is to [[spoiler: shoot a burning arrow through the cell's bars into the chest, which is made of wood. Once the chest burns up, you can use the Magnesis room to pick up the key.]]

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': The shrine containing the bomb rune is surrounded by walls, and the gate is blocked by a giant rock that can only be destroyed by... bombs. It serves as a reminder to players of previous Zelda games that [[spoiler: in this one, just climbing over the wall is a viable option.]]

* Many trains in Great Britain are provided with little hammers that have a notice saying that in the event of an emergency, the hammer should be used to break the windows of the train. The little hammer is always in an little box with a transparent cover and no way of opening the box or breaking into it. Many travelers have wondered how they are supposed to break the glass to get the hammer that allows them to break glass.
