* In ''Film/BlackMask'', at one point the BadAssNormal police detective manages to handcuff a SuperSoldier who feels no pain to a bar. The super soldier immediately and without hesitation ''cuts off his own hand''. The detective stares at him for a second and then (in the English dub at least) says "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Damn. I had the key.]]"

* In ''Webcomic/CaptainSNES'', Alex uses his Super Scope to burst a hole in the door to Nexus, which causes problems down the line. He already had the key to the door in the form of a ring. In this case, the person who points out that he had the key was Ryan, witnessing this via some sort of flashback power from the future, with future!Alex sheepily mentioning that, at the time, he hadn't ''realized'' he was carrying the key.

This includes examples when the hero ''fails'' with his tactic, and the companion uses the simpler way, which works. Another possibility is that the companion unlocks the door (or tries it and finds that it wasn't locked in the first place) just before the hero breaks it down.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'''s "Day of the Doctor" special sees three incarnations of our hero shut away in the Tower of London together, trying to work out how to get through a wooden door (it's [[RockBeatsLaser too primitive to hack with a Sonic Screwdriver]]). After some discussion, they work out a way to do it, but it would require hundreds of years to do the calculations. [[spoiler:But, since they're all from different timestreams, if the ''earliest'' Doctor inputs the calculations into the Screwdriver, the ''newest'' one will have the result stored away in his! They confirm it, congratulate themselves on their cleverness...and then Clara walks in. The door wasn't actually locked.]]
** "In The Forest of the Night". A little girl is being chased by wolves, but runs into a tall fence. The Doctor's companion urges her to climb the fence and she'll help her over. The girl ignores her, moving several steps to the side and opening a gate.

* During John Byrne's run on ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' there was a notable [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avengers]] crossover involving the return of [[Comicbook/XMen Jean Grey]]. At one point, Hercules and members of the FF accompanied Jean to her parents' home to uncover the reason for her resurrection, but their front door was locked. After Hercules smashed the door down, Jean took him to task, pointing out that her folks kept a spare key in a secret compartment inside a fake rock by the front step.

* In ''Film/{{Harper}}'', Allan and Harper have arrived at a house where they think the bad guys are. Allan, who is getting way too enthusiastic about helping in the private detective game, asks if he can knock the door down. He rams the door with one shoulder, and fails. Wincing in pain, he rams the door with his other shoulder, and fails. As he cringes from two hurt shoulders, Harper laughs, and opens the door, which wasn't locked.

* In ''[[Literature/MaximumRide The Angel Experiment]]'', Max and company steal a van to get to the School. After hotwiring it, taking it for a joyride on the interstate, and proceeding to scare the living crap out of everyone except Iggy, Max slams on the brakes and a compartment pops open. Something falls into her lap. She's afraid it's a bomb... nope, just the keys.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Hurricanes}}'': In "Techno-Team", Stavros Garkos' finance company takes over a laboratory and he decides to break in to mess with a worker's research so she'll have no choice but help him with one of his plans. When he arrives at night, his henchman Genghis is ready to use a crowbar to open the door when he points out that, as the place's owner, he has the keys.

* In ''Film/HomeAlone'', Marv tries to crowbar open the basement door twice to no avail. Then he just turns the doorknob and finds it's unlocked. (Though this is justified since we just saw Harry burn his own hand on the front door doorknob which Kevin had heated red-hot.)
