* ''CryOfFear'' has a pedophile who wrote a short poem about three children. Two of them went home, but the third one stayed, and was tricked into going close up to a bush. The final line concludes that, indeed, Curiosity killed the cat.

* Many character in the ''FatalFrame'' franchise 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.]]

** But the most obvious idiocy belongs to Cheryl in [[Film/TheEvilDead1981 the first one]], who hears a sound and goes out into the woods at night alone to investigate. She doesn't get ''killed'', per se, but what happens to her at the hands of the possessed trees is [[RapeAsDrama just as bad]].

* Shane Acker's ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}'' is made of this trope. In the feature film version, it's because of 9's combination of being both very naive and very curious that over half the cast of the movie is killed before it's all over. Admittedly, 1's death was heroic suicide, but it was 9's curiosity that lead him to jam the talisman in the machine and wake it up in the first place.

If these characters are in a horror flick, anyone showing the ''slightest bit'' of curiosity in SlasherMovie [[SortingAlgorithmOfMortality will die.]] Or release the SealedEvilInACan. Or get their GenreSavvy friend [[DeathByGenreSavviness killed]] as he complains that they shouldn't be there. Or gets them [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty captured]]. Etc, etc.

* Slight subversion in Creator/TamoraPierce's ''Literature/DaughterOfTheLioness''. Aly is warned about the dangers of curiosity with this phrase. In response, she tells the other character 'and satisfaction brought it back,' with a short complaint that no one seems to ever remember the second part of the saying.

** In ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'', curiosity caused a lot deaths at least. In prehistoric times, monsters dove to the depths of the ocean and burrowed past the mantle, far away from human habitat [[spoiler: in search of radioactive material that was becoming scarce on the surface.]] A mining accident leads to the discovery of one of their eggs, which is brought up to the surface for study. [[spoiler: A surface where there are new sources of radioactive material to feed on.]]

* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'' this occurs to anyone who studies Reaper tech heavily. The inevitable side effect is indoctrination. This notably occurs in [[spoiler: The Arrival DLC, in which the Reaper invasion nearly occurs before anyone is ready.]]

* ''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.''''']]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
