** The curse was obviously effective, as Shakespeare's remains stayed in the tomb to this day (as opposed to the usual procedure, in which a body would be removed in a couple of decades to free up the space for the next corpse).

* In the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "Too Cool", Señor Cardgage's character video curses Homestar and Strong Bad so their lips and voice change whenever they say the word "tertiary". It takes a "7 or 8 years later" FlashForward before a situation comes up where they need to say "tertiary".

* There’s said to be a curse around the lost treasure of Montezuma, supposedly buried in the mythical Aztec homeland near modern [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanab,_Utah Kanab, Utah]] by Aztec warriors to hide it from the Spaniards. Quite a few treasure hunters have gone looking for it over the years, but their efforts were stymied by a series of accidents and disasters, from rattlesnakes to constant equipment failure to panic attacks in seasoned, professional divers plumbing a lake thought to be over the burial site. A good few locals are convinced that there is treasure there, and that the curse will get anyone who tries to take it.

* The Curse of Norm Smith: Norm Smith won six premierships as coach of the Melbourne Demons. In 1965, despite having won the premiership the previous year, he was controversially sacked, and subsequently claimed the club would never win another premiership. They didn't make the finals again until 1987, and as of 2017 are still yet to win the premiership again, with their closest attempts being grand final appearances in 1988 and 2000.
