* ''Literature/TuckEverlasting'''s premise is about [[WhoWantsToLiveForever what a curse it is to be immortal]]. Granted, the family does seem pretty upset about it, but that's because they're not taking advantage of it.

* The hero in the platformer game ''Demon Returns'' in ''Game Center CX 2''/''RetroGameChallenge 2'' seems to be a form of this: he's turned into a purple imp-like demon by the BigBad of the game, but all it does is to give him sharp claws from which he can fire small tornadoes when sufficiently powered up and the ability to use any enemies he runs across as his personal form of transportation. It does seem to hinder him in that he needs to [[WizardNeedsFoodBadly consume apples constantly to stay alive]], though.

* In RetroGameChallenge, the opening of the game features Game Master Arino doing the incredibly evil act of *gasp* turning the player into a kid and sending them back in time to TheEighties. Anyone who really was a kid in the 1980s thought that this was awesome for the nostalgia. Anyone who wasn't a kid in the 1980s thought this was awesome just cause it is.

* Small-name creators may not be making enough from what they produce for entertainment for it to be their main job, but they generally enjoy better relations with their fans (due to not being flooded with constant fan messages), are more likely to [[DoingItForTheArt do what they do out of passion]] rather than just to make money, and don't have to deal with the [[CelebrityIsOverrated downsides of being super-famous]] such as constant public scrutiny.

** Also, according to Christianity, second coming will bring kingdom of God anyways (with resurrection of dead and so on.), so technically, it is not necessary to die, the guy just has to wait a bit longer.

Though it can end up becoming a legitimate curse, as he can end up becoming a digested pile of ooze that, while still sentient, is incapable of regenerating and has him stuck in that form forever.

* Some guy on twitter tried to threaten women with the "curse" of not dating them. Which led to this hilarious five-act play by JohnScalzi: [[http://whatever.scalzi.com/2014/09/25/an-anti-feminist-walks-into-a-bar-a-play-in-five-acts/]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Poison Joke causes a different curse on those who come in contact with it. Fluttershy, the ShrinkingViolet, is cursed with an unfitting deep voice, making speech even more awkward for her than usual. This becomes awesome two seasons later when her deepened voice was a perfect baritone for the Ponytones quartet.

Poison Joke causes a different curse on those who come in contact with it. Fluttershy, the ShrinkingViolet, is cursed with an unfitting deep voice, making speech talking even more awkward for her than usual. This becomes awesome two seasons later useful in the season four episode "Filli Vanilli", when her deepened voice was a perfect baritone let her stand in for Big Macintosh in an acapella quartet.
** In
the Ponytones quartet.season five episode "Appleoosa's Most Wanted", the Cutie Mark Crusaders run into Troubleshoes Clyde, a saboteur who's been going around messing up rodeos. He turns out to be just a big, clumsy GentleGiant who wanted to be in a rodeo as a colt, but believes his upside-down horseshoe cutie mark means he's BornUnlucky. It turns out his clumsiness makes him a natural at prat-falls, and the Crusaders help him achieve his dream by getting him a job as a rodeo clown.
