* The Dead Marshes in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', a foul bog stretching miles across Middle Earth filled with corpses from the first war with [[BigBad Sauron]]. [[OurSpiritsAreDifferent Spirits]] of the men, elves, and orcs that were buried there try to lure travelers into the marshes to add to the body count. Tolkien scholars speculate that the terrain was inspired by the author's experiences in the waterlogged trenches of UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne.

* Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan is one of the countrys largest suicide spots. There's even a gate on it with the number of Japan's version of the Suicide Hotline, and forest wardens often have to oust campers who are on the fence about going through with it. The forest is strung with survey tape, which people bring along as a lifeline in case they change their minds.

* A naval version of this exists in the Savo Sound in the Solomon Islands, known as ''Ironbottom Sound'' as a result of the numerous ships lost in the fierce fighting between the Japanese and the Allies during world war two. The wrecks of fifty ships are scattered across the area, ranging in size from patrol boats to the Japanese battleship Kirishima.
