* ''{{XXXenophile}}'': "Bequeath the Sheets" deals with a curse designed to make it as difficult as possible for a family to continue its line (due to the cursee coming from a long line of prudes). [[PornWithPlot The series being what it is]], the couple simply incorporate the demon into their sex lives.

* This trope is occasionally subverted in ''WorldOfWarcraft''. While most curses can simply be dispelled and cease to have an effect, dispelling some of the more powerful ones can cause a backlash as bad or worse than just leaving the curse on. For example, a particular curse [[note]] technically a magic debuff [[/note]] that causes substantial damage over time will, when dispelled, deal the dispeller that damage all at once, as well as [[StandardStatusEffects silencing]] them.

* A rather nasty version, but one that could still be described as played straight, occurs in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. Angel's curse of a soul is lifted, resulting in a really good time... for [[EnemyWithin Angelus.]]

* An example of the second variation is {{Disney| Animated Canon}}'s ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. Once the wicked prince [[LoveRedeems redeems himself and wins Belle's love]], he, his castle and all its enchanted residents [[FisherKing are returned to normal.]] Which, considering the opulence of the place as well as getting a HappilyEverAfter with Belle, isn't too shabby.

* A science fiction version in PoulAnderson's ''Brain Wave'': at the end of the Cretaceous period, millions of years ago, the Earth moved into an energy field which dampened neural function, causing mass extinctions. Some life survived and adapted. When it finally emerges, NextSundayAD, all animal life becomes about five times more intelligent in a matter of weeks. Considerable social chaos results, but people are now smart enough to make it work. A short time later, Earth's first interstellar spacecraft accidentally passes through the field, leaving the crew too stupid (that is, reduced back down to our current level) to operate the hyper-advanced controls; it's sheer luck that their course takes them back out again.

This is most likely to occur when the curse was clearly undeserved by its sufferers; in cases when the curse ''is'' deserved, the aftermath karma is usually reduced to a simple return to pre-cursed status quo with an {{Aesop}} learned.

** Interestingly, the 'curse' in question is a magic effect, not a curse effect.

** There's also another curse [[note:technically poison]] used by a boss monster that, once the curse runs it's course ''or is dispelled'', a large cloud of noxious gas is released around the victim. Dispelling classes have to work against their instincts to dispel curses during that fight, so that the victims can run out of the group before the gas cloud is released.

** The latter of those is a poison, not a curse. Technically the former isn't a curse either (just a generic magic debuff) but it's close enough to count.
** Most magical effects in World of Warcraft would probably be called a curse anywhere else. They're only really different for the purposes of game mechanics. When most people think "curse" they think "magical effect that causes bad things to happen". This effectively puts every debuff that casters have, Warlocks in particular, under the "curse" category, but for the sake of game balance, only certain types of spells become curses.
