* The 8-bit-era parody adventure game ''Bored Of The Rings'' has in one area a basilisk; if the protagonist (Fordo) enters that area without protection, the basilisk accidentally kills him with its gaze. As indicated in the Mythology and Religion section, the solution is to carry a mirror, so that the basilisk kills itself instead.

** An unintentional example occurred with Baron Ashbury in Shadowfang Keep in ''Cataclysm''. Ashbury had a spell that reduced the health of the entire party to almost zero and warriors could, with careful timing, reflect the spell back at him, causing Ashbury to kill himself.

* There is an achievement in ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' for mind-controlling an Ethereal. Fittingly, it's called "[[Franchise/XMen Xavier]]". It's very difficult, but can temporarily grant you the Ethereal's impressive array of PsychicPowers, some of which are beyond your psi-soldiers. And yes, nothing prevents you from ordering him to put a Rift right next to him, which will deal tons of damage to him every turn, or blast one of his own [[PraetorianGuard Muton Elite]] bodyguards with a Psychic Lance.

Even funnier is the fact the aliens bringing psi-users to the fight is basically the entire reason humans can develop psychic powers to begin with.

* The final boss in ''{{Painkiller}}'' is Lucifer, but he is a PuzzleBoss who cannot be directly shot to death. Instead, you have to deflect his thrown sword back to him.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' the BigBad creates TheHero and raises him to be a LaserGuidedTykebomb to [[ScrewDestiny derail the Score]] and kick off TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt it. Said hero, after he recovers from the HeroicBSOD from [[spoiler: being used to commit genocide]] by his ParentalSubstitute and finding out he's [[spoiler: [[CloningBlues a replica]]]], goes on to ''utterly screw over'' all of the plans of said BigBad and ultimately kill him. For bonus points, he uses the fighting style said BigBad taught up ''and'' is the one who successfully manages to ScrewDestiny.
