* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', a fantastic freeware civilization/roguelike game that advertises losing as being fun, has much of this at random. Particularly, you can allow a dwarf to tantrum and assault something or someone, causing another dwarf to tantrum and do the exact same thing to other dwarves, thereby setting up a DisasterDominoes that eventually kills everybody and completely ruins your entire fortress--even if the cause was simply a dwarf not being able to eat at a table. Or, you can set a dwarf on fire and he will simply not notice enough to allow himself to grab a drink from the local stores of alcohol... which bursts into flames and causes everything in the vicinity to catch fire, including other dwarves, who ''still'' won't notice and will wander about the fortress causing every non-fire-safe material they touch to catch fire, eventually causing your entire fortress to burn down to the ground.
** This game has a lot of VideoGameCrueltyPotential. If you are able to harness a source of unlimited running liquid (be it water or magma), you can redirect them to create deathtraps that involves locking in the victims and slowly filling up the death chamber with liquid, the end result being that they either drown to death or they melt horribly in molten rock.
** The best way to handle those annoying nobles? Set up suicide booths just for them -- a standard suicide booth involves a switch and a trap that will result in a guaranteed death for anyone unfortunate enough to be in the same room as the switch.
*** Fun traps include: floors that give out when the victims are standing on them, causing them to drop to their deaths; drawbridges that squash them flat when they are in range; deliberate cave-ins intended to crush the one who triggered it; locked chambers of ballista doom...
*** See the hilariously-titled wiki page [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Unfortunate_accident Unfortunate Accident.]]
** [[EverythingTryingToKillYou And, of course, there's the dwarf-eating carp. And the elephants. And the unicorn.]]
*** "I think I made the fish too hardcore."
** See [[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Boatmurdered/ Boatmurdered]] for the right way to use magma, and the wrong way to do most of everything else.
** There are also a few hilarious DF videos, such as [[http://mkv25.net/dfma/movie-567-goblindumper this one]].

Added DiffLines:

* In early 0.42 versions, cats would pick up spilled alcohol from Inns and taverns. As spilled alcohol is considered 'dirty' by the game, cats would usually try to clean themselves. Unfortunately for the cats, early versions of 0.42 had a bug that caused the game to treat spilled alcohol as a whole mug. Cats would usually die of alcohol poisoning because of this.

** It also leads to massive VideoGamePerversityPotential, especially given some of the action elements that can be specified. Alternatively one can go for absurdity, such as [[AlienGeometries "the moon is unnaturally contorted,"]] [[RussianReversal "the meanacing spike is impaled on the goblin,"]] or [[ElvesVersusDwarves "the dwarf is embracing the elf."]]
