* ''Webvideo/MarbleHornets'': A few years ago, a guy named Alex Kralie was shooting a student film of the same name. As he was filming, he started to notice a [[TheSlenderManMythos really tall guy in a suit]] occasionally lurking in the distance. As of now, Alex is on the run after a failed attempt to rebuild his life, [[spoiler:his friend Tim has gone insane and started stalking people while wearing a mask,]] and we have no idea what happened to anyone besides Jay and Tim. [[spoiler:As of late 2014, ''most of them (including Jay and Alex) are '''dead.''''']]

* Non-fatal example: in ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', Ridcully opened the locked door to a steam-bath invented by "Bloody Stupid" Johnson, despite a sign posted on the door reading, [[SchmuckBait "Do not, under any circumstances, open this door."]] Indeed, this was why Ridcully wanted the door opened; [[TooDumbToLive to find out why it was locked.]] He survived the ordeal, but just barely.

* Many character in the ''FatalFrame'' are prone to this, heading into haunted places (some of them do so on purpose). Since those who die in this series become ghosts that players must fight to survive, it's safe to say few of them survive their encounters -- [[AnyoneCanDie even main protagonists aren't immune to this consequence.]]

* 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.

*''Podcast/TheMagnusArchives'': Numerous statement-makers express regret at not simply leaving well alone or turning away and leaving and thus avoiding their frightening experience (or worse), or tell how other characters made the same mistake.
