* Crator/{{Phelous}} points out that the website in Fear Dot Com seems to run on this sort of interface.
* Film/IRobot shows Detective Spooner speaking with Dr. Lanning's hologram several times, and is frequently frustrated at the rather shallow pool of questions that it has been programmed to answer.

* In many adventure games, the player was safe with the generic verb "{{use|Item}}" applied to any object or situation. Some games, however, would not make that leap. Especially frustrating when you're given an item and you're not sure what it is and ''how'' you're supposed to use it, such as being given a crank in ''LauraBow 1'' which you're not sure what to do with. "How do you want to use the crank, Laura?" ''Aaaaarrrrgghhhh!!!''

* One puzzle in the UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum game "Danger! Adventurer at Work!" is to [[Franchise/{{Frankenstein}} animate a monster using electricity]]. The only commands which will do this are 'ATTACH ELECTRODES' followed by 'THROW SWITCH'. Reasonable alternatives such as 'CONNECT WIRES' or 'TURN ON POWER' don't work.

[[http://www.qwantz.com/archive/000778.html One strip]] sees T-Rex wondering what life would be like as a text-based adventure; Utahraptor points out that no one would ever be able to get out of bed until they found the right command:

* Parodied in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TancpHm4f4A an episode]] of the ''Limmy's Show'' sketch "Adventure Call" (part adventure game, part premium-rate phone-in game show), when a contestant encounters a troll. He attempts both "Get troll" and "Put troll in {{bag|OfHolding}}" to no avail, before attempting "Get troll" again, learning that Falconhoof doesn't understand how to "get" the troll. But then...
