* The Davy Back Fight in ''Manga/OnePiece'' is a series of contests between pirate crews. After each game, the captain of the winning crew gets to take something, ''anything'', from the losing crew- Whether it be personal property, their Jolly Roger, or even crew mates! "Silver Fox" Foxy has built a massive crew of at least 500 by winning people in these games, and actually won Chopper for a short time before the Straw Hats won their doctor back. Furthermore, he's a total cheat who goes out of his way to rig things in his crew's favor, whether its interfering in a race, or having a crooked referee for a ball game. Ultimately, Foxy loses to Luffy in the final boxing match, and Luffy (Not wanting any of Foxy's crew), takes Foxy's flag, leaving a horribly-drawn replacement.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' episode "The Duelist and the Drifter", ProfessionalGambler and MasterSwordsman the Duelist makes a habit of [[TheBet betting]] swordsmen they can't defeat him and offering up his own best blade as incentive, taking theirs as trophies when they inevitably lose. When young hero Lion-O [[ThrowingDownTheGauntlet challenges]] him and tries to raise the stakes so he can win the Duelist's entire sword collection, the Duelist insists that since Lion-O has only ''one'' to offer in return, the boy should agree to give up his ''life'' if he loses. Lion-O agrees to the terms.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'': All the game episodes, inevitably.
** Parodied in the first paintball episode, "[[Recap/CommunityS1E23ModernWarfare Modern Warfare]]." The entire school is turned into a post-apocalyptic wasteland over ''priority registration''. Jeff briefly finds the whole thing ridiculous, until he realizes what priority registration ''means'' and joins in with the craziness.
--->'''Jeff:''' You could schedule all your classes on Monday and have a six-day weekend!\\
'''Troy:''' ''[edging towards his gun]'' You could do a lot of things.
** In the second paintball episode, "[[Recap/CommunityS2E23AFistfulOfPaintballs A Fistful of Paintballs]]," a Western-themed fair is interrupted by the sponsors of the fair announcing a surprise paintball game and a ten thousand dollar cash reward to the last man standing. [[spoiler:Turns out that this was a gambit by City College to trick Greendale into destroying their own school. When things start going south, City College sends in dozens of stormtroopers and almost crushes Greendale, but Pierce ends up winning and donating the money to the school]].
** In "[[Recap/CommunityS5E05GeothermalEscapism Geothermal Escapism]]," Abed announces a game of "The Floor is Hot Lava," offering a rare comic worth fifty thousand dollars to the winner. [[spoiler:This was Abed's way of dealing with the fact that his best friend was leaving; as far as he's concerned, the comic wasn't the highest stake in the game]].
** In the third paintball episode, "[[Recap/CommunityS6E11ModernEspionage Modern Espionage]]," the game has gone underground because of Frankie's new rules. But someone (most likely City College) is still offering a massive cash reward to the last man standing.

* ''OhGod, You Devil!''. God and the Devil play a poker hand over Bobby's soul. God ''raises'' the stakes, by allowing the Devil to consider ''any'' soul available for stealing (the Devil can only offer a contract if the person offers his soul first); the Devil folds. [[spoiler: God bluffed him out of his full house with a busted flush, and won.]]

In the first round, the player loses their [[{{Fingore}} fingers]] if they lose, then in the second they get treated to an increasingly high current of [[ShockAndAwe electricity]], then in the third, the loser gets their [[CruelAndUnusualDeath face torn apart by a homemade buzzsaw.]]
