* Featured in the ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'' episode "The Curse of Kongo Bongo". The only way to undo the effects of the Curse of the Double Doubloon (''"The Double Curse of Bluebeard Baboon lies in these words you see / Read them once, then read them twice and your island is history"'') is to read a spell from one of Cranky's spell books; "''The Curse of the Double Doubloon can easily be reversed / Read these words, and you will see your island is no longer cursed''"

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'' has the eponymous curse laid on the gold by the Aztec gods: Any man who removes but a single piece from the chest is cursed for all eternity. The only way to break the curse is to return not only every single gold piece to the chest, but also blood from the one who took it. Merely ''possessing'' a piece from the chest is not sufficient to suffer the curse; [[ExactWords it only affects those who actually remove the gold themselves(or their direct blood descendants)]]. Both the curse itself and the escape clause are employed strategically by Jack during the final battle.

* Zig-zagged in ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'', when the title character curses Aurora, claiming that no force on earth can stop it once it is cast; King Stephen's begging appeals to Maleficent's sense of humor and she includes the TrueLovesKiss escape clause. [[spoiler:Neither Maleficent nor Stephen believe in true love after Stephen's betrayal, making it a cruel NoManOfWomanBorn situation in their perspective -- though while LoveAtFirstSight turns out to be a wash, Maleficent's own eventual love for Aurora as a surrogate parent is strong enough to overcome the curse.]]

** It was played with when Angel was given drugs by a starlet wanting to be turned so she could keep her good looks, and the curse was loosened enough to allow Angelus to take control while he was high. Also, the curse failed to break after Angel had sex with Darla near the end of the series run.
