* ''Film/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs''. Flint's lab ''looks'' secure, but the big electronic door is actually just a ConcealingCanvas with fake biometrics that Flint ''pretends'' is real. There is also a computer voice that ''seems'' to identify whoever enters, but really just says "Welcome, Flint" no matter who walks in. Midway through the movie the [[CorruptBureaucrat mayor]] gets in uninvited (despite being [[FatBastard morbidly obese]] and confined to a motorized scooter) and Flint asks [[LampshadeHanging how he did it]].

* Creator/BernardCornwell's ''The Pagan Lord'' sees a Danish warlord with ambitions gather an army and march south out of Mercia to attempt to defeat Wessex, in the aftermath of the death of Alfred the Great and the accession of a decidely unready King Ethelred. [[note]]modern English used for convenience - it ''should'' be Ælfread and Æthælred[[/note]] he marches four thousand men south into England and leaves his wife and heirs in his fortress at Chester, guarded by only fifty or so elderly and wounded Danes, reasoning the Sazons will be too distracted by events in their heartlands to think of mounting a hostage-taking raid. Then Uhtred of Babbenburg rides in with thirty men, claiming to be late-arriving Danes wanting to join the fight and grab plunder. They get the plunder - Cnut's wife and children.

* In ''Film/TheTerminator'', Lt. Traxler assures Sarah Connor she'll be safe in the police station since more then 30 officers are on duty inside. Unfortunately, he doesn't know the assailant pursuing Sarah is an armored cyborg from the future that is virtually immune to small arms fire, and he's able to blast his way through the police quite easily.

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', the owner of Kendo's Guns assures your character that he/she will be safe in his store, given that he's keeping a close eye on things. Unfortunately, the huge glass windows of his shop weren't part of those aforementioned things, and so zombies quickly crash through them while he's not looking (FridgeLogic: wouldn't a gun store have security shutters to keep that sort of thing from happening?) and munch him down like a baked chicken, at which point you can either haul ass from your now-compromised shelter or fight off the horde and claim poor Mr. Kendo's weapon for your own.

** Hogwarts is supposed to be the safest place in the world, despite the fact that it's infiltrated every single year by the bad guys. The first book recurses the trope--[[MacGuffin the stone]] is protected by a DeathCourse ''within'' Hogwarts, but Voldemort had already made his way into Hogwarts and has no difficulty getting past the obstacles... except the last one. [[spoiler:[[SecretTestOfCharacter You could only get the stone if you had no intention of using it.]]]] He had to wait for three eleven-year-olds to ''also'' complete the supposedly impossible course, so that Harry could accidentally solve the last puzzle for him.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' the Speedwagon Foundation averts this. What makes it especially notable is that in the field, Speedwagon Foundation agents tend to be RedShirts. Regardless, whenever the Speedwagon Foundation manages to secure an object from the villains or, in one case, even the actual ''body'' of a villain who can regenerate if not kept under the proper conditions, it is secured permanently, and even when an agent is killed, it will usually be after they have accomplished what they were there to do.
