* In ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'', it's said that the King of Alba has been cursed with infidelity by a scorned lover, which is why he's in his forties and still without an heir. [[[spoiler:The curse is real, but the "scorned lover" was actually a woman he raped.]] The Queen's magic, coupled with Amicia's healing powers, accidentally overpower it and break it.

* ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' series, based on East European folklore, is rife with curses of all kinds, ranging from simple hexes that make life difficult for people, to complex enchantments that transform people into monsters. In fact, the serie sbegins with geralt reversing a curse cast on the child of King Foltest, turning her into a horrific striga. Later, Geralt ends up reversing another curse on a man named Duny, who was cursed to look like a humanoid hedgehog since birth by his father's enemies, and who is in fact [[spoiler: Emhyr var Emries, the heir to the entire Nilfgaardian Empire, and subsequently comes to rule it and setting into motion the tumultuous events in the entire series over the next couple of decades.]]

** In 2016, the Cubs would not only ''finally'' win the Pennant by beating the Dodgers in 6 games, but at long last win a World Series in a nail-biter against the Cleveland Indians. The latter was an especially tense victory, considering the Cubs were at one point down three games to one, making it seem like their curse wasn't quite done with them yet.

The latter was an especially tense victory, considering the Cubs were at one point down three games to one, one before they rallied back to win Games 5 and 6, and then in Game 7 took a 6-3 lead into the bottom of the 8th before the Indians tied it, ''and then'' the game finished the regulation nine innings tied at 6 when a rain delay set in, making it seem like their curse wasn't quite done with them (or the Indians, who at that time had the second-longest World Series championship drought and had been dogged with curse talk of their own) yet.



** 2015-2016 is when the "Curse" got really vicious, the Montreal Canadiens started off to a historic 9-0-0 start to the 15-16 NHL season. However injuries plagued the team later on costing them a spot in the Playoffs. In fact ''no'' Canadian team made the Stanley Cup Playoffs that season

** And if you thought the current 16-17 season is going well for the Habs, well it is once again starting off 9-0 but they were shutout in a historic ''10-0'' loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

** For that matter the Chicago Cubs had a curse of their own. The last time they won a World Series was in 1908. It was finally broken for them when they defeated the Cleveland Indians in seven games in 2016.

* The Sports Curse of the city of Cleveland Ohio was allegedly the inability for the city to win any championship title in major league sports. The city second-most recent championship was the Browns NFC Championship game of 1966, two years before the first ''UsefulNotes/SuperBowl''. The Browns appeared in the NFC Championship game in 1987, one game away from the Super Bowl, but still lost to the Denver Broncos. Returning the next year along with the Broncos, the Browns made a fumble late in the game that cost them the win. It didn't help when the team was moved to Baltimore in 1995 and an expansion Browns team that started in 1999 lacked the same kind of skill or energy. The Indians also a long way with no championship, the last World Series they won was in 1948. They made it to the World Series in 1997 only to blow it in game 7. They would return again in 2016 to fall to the Chicago Cubs also after seven games. The element that broke the curse, the Cavaliers, didn't always have a smooth road either. They made their first finals appearance in 2007 where they'd lose to the San Antonio Spurs. In 2010 front-man [=LeBron=] James announced his departure from the Cavs to move to the Miami Heat, where he led them to three NBA Finals appearances and two victories. He would return to Cleveland in 2014 and lead the Cavs to two consecutive Finals appearances. The curse was finally broken in 2016 when the Cavs defeated the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
