* In ''Disney/WreckItRalph", as Ralph is trying to figure out how Vanellope's racecar works, Vanellope asks, "What does this joystick do?", pulls it, and reverses, smacking Ralph in the face. She does this two more times.

* In the 1995 [[UsefulNotes/PhilipsCDi Philips CDi]] informercial ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhZdWvnF3do A Day with Sid, Ed & Cd-i]]'', in a scene deriding {=PCs=}, a woman tries and fails to start a game in DOS for her son. While she goes looking for the manual, the boy instantly becomes bored and, having been told not to touch anything, immediately starts pressing random keys. Two keypresses in and a Windows 3.1-style dialog box appears asking if he wants to erase the hard drive. Up to five keypresses later and the screen is literally flashing red. A dramatic press of the enter key (while his mother helplessly tries and fails to run across the room) later and the obvious happens.

* In the novelisation for ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'', having forced his way into command of Enterprise, Admiral Kirk finds himself thrown when he realises he doesn't know which button unlocks the restraints on the captain's chair. It's played more seriously later when he worries that his unfamiliarity with the systems might have lead to the deaths from a transporter malfunction, because he didn't fix the problem quickly enough.

* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''. Trip creates a new captain's chair for Archer in "Borderland". As they're about to go on a mission he says they don't have time to go over the controls, "...but try not to hit that button."
