* In the Brown Islands setting of the ''TabletopGame/DiscworldRoleplayingGame'', the locals have a habit of reassuring visitors that they stopped doing this ''ages'' ago. The bland vagueness of this reassurance leaves the visitors with an unsettling feeling that the islanders aren't really sure ''why'' they stopped, and may reconsider this decision at any moment.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', MINREC is basically a robot volcano god and the whole Meltdown multiplayer mode is to appease him by escorting Minion sacrifices to "altars" so that they'll be recycled. Those that don't appease him, he'll smite in a fashion similar to what a typical volcano god does in the form of meltdowns.
