* In ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersTorment'', Kesto Brighteyes has some extensive research literature on the subject, which makes sense, as he's a wizard:
-->'''Kesto:''' First of all, Ben, there can be no doubt… You're cursed. Now, curses come in six degrees of power: embarrassing, debilitating, hazardous, dangerous, lethal, and eternal. An embarrassing curse is the type that a hedge mage might cast, which could give the victim a rash for a day or two or make his skin green. Debilitating curses might give the victim a bad cold, or make bees attracted to him… [[MotorMouth Now, hazardous curses…]]
-->'''Ben:''' Just get to the point! What kind do I have?
-->'''Kesto''' ''(makes long sigh)'': The worst kind, I'm afraid...Eternal. Eternal curses rarely actually last as long as the name implies, but they are so powerful, they can affect whole family lines, for hundreds of years. They might continue to curse the victim's spirit after he dies. In your case, you appear unable to die at all. If what you say is true. Usually, only beings with godlike powers can inflict eternal curses. They're beyond the powers of mortals to inflict.
-->'''Ben:'' I thought you folks thought that the gods' powers were a sham.[[note]]This is a misconception on Ben's part. Kesto is a member of a group who believes gods are frauds with no true authority over mortals, who only have it because MightMakesRight.[[/note]]
-->'''Kesto''': ''(nervous laugh}'' Ben, saying that the gods aren't powerful would be incredibly foolish. That's the mistake that [[PredecessorVillain Sezzik Tam]] made. They're unbelievably powerful. We simply don't think that having power necessarily makes them deserving of worship. But getting back to you... This is grim, yes, but there is hope... [[MacGuffin This Duel Disk]] is a link to the [[CurseEscapeClause Escape Clause.]]
-->'''Ben:''' Escape Clause?
-->'''Kesto:''' All serious curses have Escape Clauses, some way of lifting them. In fact, if a magical affliction is ''truly'' incurable, it can't truly be classified as a curse. A bloodthirsty pirate who loots a town and burns it to the ground might be cursed by a survivor, so that his crew suffers from unfavorable weather and bouts of scurvy... But... The curse might be lifted if he makes amends to the heirs of his victims. That's the Escape Clause. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say that lifting this curse would involve dueling someone. Of course, knowing exactly how to enact this Escape Clause would require knowing how you acquired this curse to begin with...

* In ''Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters'', the protagonist, Yugi, solves an ancient puzzle which houses the spirit of a 5000 year old Pharaoh, and according to both the Dub and the original Japanese version, he is supposedly 'cursed'. [[CursedWithAwesome It's a rather beneficial curse, though,]] as he gains an alter ego voiced by Creator/DanGreen and becomes an expert in all kinds of games, even beating the world champion in a card game the first time they play against each other. And it comes in handy during the "Waking The Dragons" Arc, where the Seal of Orichalcos, a regular card, seals the loser's soul. If having an extra soul was ever an advantage, this would be the time.

* In Uzumaki, The town of Kurôzu-cho, Japan is cursed by the horrifying [[GothSpirals Spiral]], causing terrible things to befall citizens of the town, like people forcibly contorting themselves into Spiral shapes (dying in the process), or hair curling into spirals on young girls heads and causing hypnotic effects on their peers, and even making lighthouses emit such powerful beams of light that it burns up people who get to close to it. The Curse causes people in the town to slowly loose their minds just THINKING about the shape.
