* ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'': Can be deliberately invoked by the player by upgrading a Shuttle, which have very rusty, geometric and hap-hazard designs but can be upgraded with serious firepower and long-distance Hyperdrives.

** To expand briefly on the trophy Hilux, the presenters drove it like yobs (slamming it into random bits of Bristol), left it on a boat launch while the tide was coming in (and then having it accidentally wash out to sea when the straps broke), dropped a caravan on it, hit it with a wrecking ball, ''lit it on fire'', and eventually ''dropped a building on it'', via parking it on top of a condemned tower block. Even after the 23-storey drop, with a significant chunk of building landing on top of it, it '''still ran'''.
*** And if that wasn't impressive enough, it should be noted that said Hilux was an ex-farm vehicle with a half rusted-through body and enough miles on the clock to have gone to the moon before they even started trying to kill it.

* To thwart a coup d'état against her government, Kira has to rely on a decade-old raider in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''[='s=] "The Siege". Navigation is out, the targeting system doesn't work, the plasma conduit is held together with duct tape and prayer, and when a fire breaks out in the cabin, Dax grabs a nearby extinguisher... which fizzles out after a few squirts.

* In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' we get introduced to the ''USS Franklin,'' an old Federation starship that's been perched on the top of a mountain for well over a hundred years. Sulu compares it to a "horse and buggy" in contrast to the swarm of alien ships controlled by the villain of the film. [[spoiler: Which makes it all the more impressive when it manages to wipe out said swarm with ThePowerOfRock.]] This is well after we see the [[EverythingIsAnIPodInTheFuture iPod sleek Enterprise]] get trounced by the swarm at the beginning of the film.
