* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necklace_of_Harmonia Necklace of Harmonia]] in Myth/GreekMythology was cursed. It did not harm to Harmonia herself (she being divine) but every mortal descendant who owned it came to a bad end, or brought misfortune on her family. Betrayal, murder, and tragic deaths followed the necklace from legend to legend.

* The cymbal-clanging wind-up monkey toy from Creator/StephenKing's short story "The Monkey" causes a person, or occasionally a pet, connected to the Shelburns die each time it activates. It's also able to influence people to compel them to wind it up.

* In the "World's Finest" crossover between ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', TheJoker gets a hold of a glowing green dragon statue. The previous owners of said statue all died mysteriously. Contrary to the stories behind it, it's not because of a curse or anything magical. The statue is ''Kryptonite'', and Kryptonite being radioactive is far from harmless to humans (it just kills Kryptonians like Superman ''faster'').

* ''{{Bionicle}}'': The Ignika, Mask of Life. One of its purposes is a reset button for the Matoran Universe... by taking away all the life in the universe should there be things like a never-ending chaotic conflict. And the more conflict in the universe, the shorter its countdown to death is.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' provides the page image has many cards that will take away life points in exchange for a benefit. Ironically, the page image is not an example- it's an alternate art for [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=630 Mox Jet]], which has no cost and is considered such a GameBreaker that it's a member of the Power Nine. It costs nothing and taps for one black mana, just like a Swamp. But it's an artifact instead of a land, meaning that ''unlike'' a Swamp, it's not restricted to one per turn.

* Roger's golden turd, from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''. Two men discover it, and one kills the other so he can keep it for himself. He then kills himself by driving his car onto railroad tracks after he finds out his wife is cheating on him. Later, a cop investigating it steals the turd and takes it home, but regrets it and decides to turn it in because [[{{Retirony}} he's going to retire in a week]] and is afraid he'll be found out. His wife then poisons him to prevent him from doing this.

* The Ultimate Nullifier, seen in ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' and elsewhere in MarvelComics, can destroy anything, but in doing so destroys its wielder... ''unless'' they perfectly understand who they're nullifying and how they work. Given that the first time the Nullifier is used, it's targeted at ComicBook/{{Galactus}}, destruction of the wielder was inevitable since no mortal can truly comprehend such an EldritchAbomination. Fortunately, Galactus backs down from the mere threat of the Nullifier, as being hit by it would not only kill him, it would be disastrous to TheMultiverse as a whole.
