Brainstorming here about software projects you wouldn't want to be agile. Agile being where you are shipping to production in short cadences.

- Healthcare system software - not IT but like software on those blood pressure monitor, drug dosing things hanging beside patients. You want to get those types of things right.

- Software for anything in the military involving weapon systems.

- Nuclear power plant control software.

I honestly believe that 95% of software developers don't touch these types of things but I would think these are cases where a waterfall approach with heavy QA cycles is desired.
