** In every FIFAWorldCup, any team for a sincerely passionate soccer nation who gets eliminated ([[WhatTheHellHero especially if they lose in a shameful way]]) will send its entire trusting nation into the abyss of grievance, given how much trust they have put to this very team that fails to bring home their glory. Also, just any soccer fan who supports this team will lose interest in the rest of the matches, too.

* The London Dungeon, an attraction near the London Bridge in the UK. Now before you comment with a very smart-assed "Well DUUUUH", just read. The whole idea is a haunted house with the theme of London's downer history. It even starts with you getting a picture of yourself on Death Row. You learn about the burning of London, a doctor who preserved living peoples' organs for vitality, Sweeney Todd, Jack The Ripper, etc. Another idea is capital punishment, and you, the visitor, being subject to it (the actors even throw in some humor to lighten it up a bit). The last part is a giant drop, symbolizing you hanging from the gallows. Of course, while it's all played for fun and for scares, it is simultaneously very bleak and depressing. Still fun, though!

* The board game {{Defictionalization}} of Franchise/{{Jumanji}} can have this happen in some playings. Each time a player lands on a space, the rest of the players have a limited amount of time to use their "rescue die" to save the player from the game's hazard they drew, otherwise said hazard manages to escape into the real world. Failure to do this ten times results in an automatic loss for all players.
