Old war stories:

Early versions of the 8085 microprocessor (late 1970's to early 80's) had an undocumented opcode that folks called HCF: Halt and Catch Fire. The processor would stop executing code and would begin outputting an incrementing value on the address bus at the processor clock speed. IIRC you had to remove power from the chip to stop it. I don't think interrupts or the reset line were effective at that point.

Interestingly, PDP-11 assembly language had a more-or-less documented version. I don't remember the mnemonic, but the essence of the instruction was to get the word at the program counter, auto-decrement the program counter, write the word to the address in the program counter, and jump there. The end result was a single instruction that would copy itself to the previous word in memory and jump there.
