* Pip from ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'' [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=343 does this by proxy]] before selling MadScientist equipment left by EvilMinions on [[FictionalCounterpart EBuy]].

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': This series mixed this trope with with FallingIntoTheCockpit, and deconstructed both of them (funny and ironic, keeping in mind that ''Anime/MazingerZ'' [[UnbuiltTrope was the first mecha show where the pilot fell into the cockpit]]). When TheHero Kouji sat in the Hover Pilder (the flying device that controls the Super Robot) for first time, he knew absolutely nothing about piloting. His little brother suggested to him that maybe it was a really bad idea, and he angrily replied he only needed to figure out what each button did. So what he began pressing random buttons to ascertain which did what... and he nearly got himself and his brother killed. Mazinger-Z went on a rampage, destroying everything on its path, and it only stopped when Sayaka showed up and carefully explained to Kouji what he had to do (after getting baffled at the thought of someone doing something SO stupid). And it was way worse in the original manga version, since Kouji activated Mazinger-Z in the middle of a big city. To be fair, though, the person who had built Mazinger-Z was dead, so it was not like if Kouji could consult someone about it at the time.
