* Illusion magic in ''Webcomic/AnotherGamingComic''. In the group's backstory, the use and abuse of illusion magic had reached the point where the players were forced in simple self-defense to specifically and explicitly test ''every single thing'' they encountered to confirm that it wasn't an illusion, slowing the game to a snail's pace and driving the GM to dangerous levels of fury. In the end, the problem was only stopped by the signing of The Treaty, an actual real-life, notarized treaty that banned the use of all forms of illusion.

* In ''Film/KissOfTheDragon'', JetLi describes the titular technique as "very secret, very forbidden". The technique actually poses no danger to the user; it is forbidden because of its effect on the target.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', [[LimitBreak Z-Moves]] can only be used once per day because they drain both the Pokémon and the trainer of a lot of energy, and it's known that people have ''died'' trying to perform them consecutively within the span of ''hours''. [[spoiler: However, Bloodliners seem to be capable of using them consecutively without fatal risks in the span of minutes with different Pokémon, albeit not without [[PowerStrainBlackout collapsing after doing so]].]]

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/TheLastJedi'' reveals that AstralProjection is one such technique for all Force users. As Kylo Ren notes, it's an extremely powerful ability, but the physical strain it causes (especially if done over large distances) is so tremendous that it will likely kill the user. In the climax, [[spoiler:Luke uses it to distract the First Order and ensure the Resistence escapes; sure enough, the strain of projecting himself across several light years for an extended period of time kills him, causing him to [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence become one with the Force]].]]

* Used ''on'' the main character in EliStone. When Eli needs to see the future with more clarity, he asks his acupuncturist Dr. Chen to use a little-known needle combination known as "The Dark Truth." After doing it once, Eli nearly has a heart attack, which makes Chen swear it off. So Eli winds up going to Chen's DistaffCounterpart and rival. He actually has the procedure done at least three times, which is probably why [[spoiler: his aneurysm gets worse by the end of Season 2]].

** Nukes are literally forbidden by international law; even ''threatening'' to use nuclear weapons against another power constitutes a war crime. Though eight nations are declared to have nuclear weapons (and one is suspected) most nuclear powers refuse to consider using nuclear weapons unless someone else does first. Nowadays, the worry is more about the dangers of non-state actors (ie. terrorists) using them instead, which [=MAD=] is essentially powerless against.

** In addition, many of the ''Kingdom Hearts'' villains themselves cannot control the darkness. Maleficent actually appears to Hades and cautions him not to delve too deep at one point in the story. [[spoiler:Ironically, she delves too deep and is slain at the hands of Sora and company (though it should be noted that she had her heart forcibly opened to the darkness by Ansem; she ''is'' GenreSavvy enough to follow her own advice). Hades, while defeated in the Hades Cup, does not die, being a god, and reappears in ''Kingdom Hearts II'' not at all worse for wear.]]

*** The Mafuba is brought back (like many old attacks and characters) in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' in an attempt to seal an immortal god, [[spoiler:Future Zamasu]]. None of the characters even mention the possibility of it being lethal and it in no way weakens the character who used it (except in the manga). It's likely that it was fatal for Roshi back during Dragon Ball either had too low Ki, he was too old and frail despite his expanded lifespan, or a combination of the two.

It was more likely the former as, when Master Roshi is brought in for the Tournament of Power, he pulls it off three times in a row, then two more times later on before he decides to quit. Despite being over 20 years older, his ki had increased greatly, matching that of base form Goku.

* The [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Mordhau]] ("murder-stroke" or "murder-strike") in [[UsefulNotes/EuropeanSwordsmanship German school of swordsmanship]]. BilingualBonus applies why it is forbidden in friendly combat where the aim is NOT to kill your opponent. True, it may seem odd how, in a fight with big, sharp implements it's [[ImprobableUseOfAWeapon smashing someone with the handle]] that's forbidden, but that thing is heavy, and tends to ignore the fact the victim's wearing metal armor. It has that name for a ''reason''.

* Water methanol injection, also called as War Emergency Power, on turbocharged internal combustion engines. Injecting 1:1 water-methanol mixture to the combustion chamber can boost the performance of the engine for up to 33% and add up extra horsepowers. Unfortunately, it will also damage the cylinder heads. In WWII, its use was approved only for emergency situations, like an airplane escaping from a [[AcePilot particularly nasty enemy]], and using the mechanism involved on breaking the seals.
** Likewise nitrous oxide injection, called [[BilingualBonus ''Ha-Ha-Gerät'']] in the Luftwaffe. It will boost the performance, but long periods of use will seriously damage the engine.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10092339/1/Ranma-Saotome-Chi-Master Ranma Saotome, Chi Master]]'' has the Black Dragon Breath Technique, which greatly increases the amount of chi the user has at his or her disposal, and automatically channels it into a dragon-shaped battle aura around the user. The drawback is that it puts a ''lot'' of stress on the user's body. Since the battle aura is so compact, it eventually causes the user's muscles to tear themselves apart. Even worse, the breathing exercises required to maintain the aura starts rupturing the blood vessels in the lungs after a while, eventually causing the user to drown in his or her own blood.
