Added DiffLines:

* The Famous saying "curiosity killed the cat" is [[BeamMeUpScotty actually used incorrectly]]. The original saying was "care killed the cat" and care back then meant "worrying". So the meaning was "don't stress out over things so much or it'll end up killing you".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. Just because they're rebels doesn't stop the crew of the Liberator checking things out from sheer boredom or curiosity, usually [[OnlySaneMan against the advice of Avon]]. In "Sacrophagus" they investigate a mysterious alien craft whose inhabitant nearly takes over the ship, [[AesopAmnesia only to have the exact same thing happen in the next episode!]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicStrip/SpyVsSpy'', any time one the spies lets his curiosity get the better of him, it invariably leads to his demise.

* ''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]].

*** Which is probably why [[DudeNotFunny the trees thought]] [[BlackComedyRape she was asking for it]]...

* 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.
