* In ''[[{{Narnia}} The Magician's Nephew]]'', a young man cannot resist the temptation to ring a bell which is marked with a warning (and [[SchmuckBait tantalizing]]) poem. It turns out that this bell awakens the witch Jadis, who later becomes the first evil force in Narnia. The poem concludes by saying, in effect, "If you ''don't'' ring the bell, you'll ''never'' know what would've happened. [[NothingIsScarier You'll always wonder what would've happened, and it might drive you insane]]".

* ''Film/HocusPocus'': A non-lethal example. When snooping in a house where witches used to live, and informed that a virgin lighting the candle will return them to life, the clueless teen protagonist does just that, incidentally subverting AManIsNotAVirgin.

* In the latter parts of the ''Gensokyo20XX'' series, we have this with Reimu and the fact that bad things have happened because of her curiousity, the two being, 1),she crawls off into the "kitsune territory" and Ran is almost raped, leading her to be badly traumatized (20XXIV, Chapter 9 however, the door to their house was opened) and, 2), she drinks a kind of serum and the other kids drink it, reverting them to toddlers (20XXV, Chapter 35). The fact that Reimu has no sense of danger doesn't make this better.

* The film ''Film/Gamera3AwakeningOfIrys'' also has this when Ayana and some other curious students enter a forbidden shrine said to contain a "demon". [[SarcasmMode Congratulations, Ayana! You've just unleashed an ancient evil unto the world that wants to devour you so it can become strong enough to kill the only thing that can stop it and wipe out all of humanity!]]

** With this all said, the one arc that makes a point of averting this trope is the PS2-only Taraimawashi-hen, in which you make a point of having Keiichi ignore all of the weird things going on around the village. He still dies, as does everyone else, save Mion.

* ''VideoGame/{{Scratches}}'' has this happen with James Blackwood. His curiosity about African tribes led to him likely getting cursed and bring ruin to his family, before he dies under misterious consequences. And player character Michael's curiosity ''could'' lead the same way...
