* Basil and Dawson are in Ratigan's DeathTrap in ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective''. The DeathTrap has fortunately been foiled by the broken record. Dawson bellows out his "PullYourselfTogether", and causes the record needle to jump past the broken spot, thereby starting the DeathTrap up again. This has {{Ironically}} been cited as a MomentOfAwesome for Dawson.

* In ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', at the climax, Gozer demands that the Ghostbusters pick the form of The Destroyer, Gozer's instrument to kill all life on Earth. Peter, Egon, and Winston all manage to keep from thinking of anything, but poor Ray had an idea - the most innocent thing he could think of from his childhood - the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. Cue 100-foot tall marshmallow golem rampaging through New York.

* ''Iron Man'' films:
** In ''Film/IronMan1'' Iron Man unintentionally causes the destruction of an Air Force F-22 that attempted to intercept him (before they knew he was a good guy). In his defense, he made sure that the pilot's ejection suit worked properly. Also, he helped to design and build many of the weapons being used by the Ten Rings (and presumably the Taliban, though that much is never stated in the first film).
** In ''Film/IronMan2'', when the villain is captured, the first thing Tony says, braggart he is, is how the villain could have made the design of his whips more efficient. When the two meet up later, the first thing the escaped villain says is that he followed Tony's advice and has stronger whips as a result.

** Compare the fate that would have awaited her if she had succeeded in her matchmaking with what happened after she failed. Had she succeeded, she almost certainly wouldn't have joined the army in her father's place, making it very likely that not only would he have died, the Huns would have managed to succeed in their invasion. She also would not have earned the respect of the Emperor or met and won the heart of Shang, who is a better match than the matchmaker could have arranged for her. Who said that cricket wasn't a lucky one?
