* Anime/Bakugan has the forbidden ability card Chaos X, which can give a Bakugan MoreDakka (albeit [[PowerAtAPrice resulting in death in some cases]]) and force them to evolve, at the expense of their souls.

* In FairyTail Summoning the Celestial Spirit King is this. The Celestial Spirit King is the most powerful spirit a celestial mage can summon, so powerful in fact that just his appearance counts as an attack! To do so requires a ton of prerequisites, these include:
**Having a very high magical energy threshold. After the summoning is done the user, if not outright killed by summoning the King due to magical exhaustion, will still be physically incapacitated due to the strain the summoning magic causes.
**The Celestial Spirit user has to sacrifice one of the twelve golden keys to the zodiac. These keys are super rare, only one key can be in existence on the planet at any time. Doing so means you have to wait a LONG time for another one to appear.
**The User has to have a strong emotional bond with whatever key they sacrifice. Otherwise the summoning will completely fail! [[spoiler:Lucy was in such an emotional state that right after summoning the king her response by one of the demons as to what she had done is to cry uncontrollably and not answer!]]
**Even if the summoning IS successful the King is under a very strict time limit. Typically only about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the mage's magic power and his emotional state is directly tied to the mage's emotional state. So if the mage is incredibly upset or angry the king might very well go on a berserker rush against his opponent. [[spoiler:This is exactly what the celestial spirit king does in response to Lucy being so upset]]

** Prior to the 2nd Edition, Orcus was murdered by Kiaransalee, the drow goddess of undeath, who usurped his realm in the Abyss. However, in the ''Dead Gods'' module, he CameBackWrong, becoming an undead demon named Tenebrous, possessing a spell called the Last Word that was so lethal, even gods were afraid to use it. This didn't stop Orcus, however. Despite the fact that it was literally consuming him from within, he used it in his camaign to restore himself to life killing several gods using it in order to reclaim [[ArtifactOfDoom his Wand]], and regain his domain in the Abyss. (He succeeding in doing all that, but fortunately, failed in his ultimate goal: becoming a true god.) After gaining back his true form and position, he lost the ability to use it. (The gods have since taken steps to prevent anyone from using it again.)

* There are several different levels of it in the WhateleyUniverse. Phase has a technique (using his disruption-light level on someone) that runs the risk of corrupting their Body Image Tempalte if they are an Exemplar or Shifter, and turning thme into something grotesque; he avoids it it on moral grounds. Fey has some spells powerful enough that the energy drain will destroy entire ecosystems around her, which is way worse.

* The Styles Clash is a really dangerous move if executed improperly. Wrestling/YoshiTatsu botched receiving it and ended up with a broken neck, but Wrestling/AJStyles has grown attentive and actually saved James Ellsworth from injury by noticing he tucked his chin and landing on his hands.

** Thats not even mentioning the Super Kaio-Ken, which was seen only once during his filler arc battle again Pikkon (though it is mentioned again in ''Dragon Ball Super''). This technique is so dangerously impractical that it results in ''instant'' death, and Goku [[ItOnlyWorksOnce can't even use it again]], even while dead.

This technique is so dangerously impractical that it results in ''instant'' death, and Goku [[ItOnlyWorksOnce can't even use it again]], even while dead. This anime-only usage was the last time it was used in Z, as the various Super Saiyan forms had superseded it in nearly every regard, and combining the two was only practical while dead.



*** The Mafuba is brought back (like many old attacks and characters) in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' in an attempt to seal an immortal god, [[spoiler:Future Zeemasu]]. None of the characters even mention the possibility of it being lethal and it in no way weakens the character who used it. So that goes to reason that it's only lethal/draining to a low Ki Human - Roshi has a power level less than 200.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' gives us Goku's "Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-Ken", where he uses Kaio-Ken while in his Super Saiyan Blue form. It provides a ''massive'' boost to Goku's power, but has a scant 10% success rate and can potentially kill Goku instantly the other 90% of the time. The technique also leaves Goku weakened, in pain, and unable to effectively use his ki afterwards.

Like with the original Kaio-Ken, this handicap is either dropped or overcome as Goku uses it more frequently in future arcs.



** The Energy Steroids from the Fishman Island arc give the user extreme power, endurance, and staminy, but at the expense of his lifespan [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity and possibly his sanity as well.]]

* Another naval example would be the Japanese mounting the infamous "Long-Lance" torpedo on their cruisers. The torpedoes were stealthier than most, but also much more volatile. Thus, I they were hit while still on the ship the resulting explosion often crippled the ship.

* Towards the end of the Chimera Ant arc of ''HunterXHunter'', [[spoiler: Gon forced himself to grow by shortening his lifespan, using all his inborn talent to reach the power that rivals the King of Ants (strongest being as of now), with the possibility of never being able to use nen ever again (and having lifespan shortened)]].

* In the ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'' series, Megid invokes this trope by name. In [[PhantasyStarII PS2]], it's CastFromHitPoints at a painful rate. In ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIII'' it's only invoked in a cutscene, but when it is, ''it wipes out an entire city in a single casting.'' Note that [=PS3=]'s setting is largely medieval compared to the sci-fi ambience of the rest of the series, so any spell capable of leveling a city is pretty much the equivalent of the Tsar Bomba. In [[PhantasyStarIV PS4]], the negative effects on the player are gone, potentially due to where it comes from and what the stakes are at the time, but it's not easy to access (being guarded by a [[SealedGoodInACan Sealed]] GoodIsNotNice [[SealedGoodInACan in a Can]] guardian who you need to outwit to get it) and the only other user of the spell is the EldritchAbomination that threatens to wipe out the entire star system (and, ostensibly, the universe after that) if you fail in your quest.

** Sasuke's Chidori is only supposed to be used twice. The third time he used it, he would have died if he didn't have a cursed deal which nearly [[GrandTheftMe took him over]]. Since then, he increased his own chakra capacity to the point that he can spam it without any ill effects.

*** Speaking of the piledriver some more, there's an [[UpToEleven even more devastating variation of it]] known as the Vertebreaker, considered easily one of the most dangerous moves in all of wrestling. It's like a piledriver except, instead of holding your opponent upside-down in front of you by their torso, you hold them upside-down ''behind'' you by their ''arms,'' with the two of you back-to-back. This means their arms are restrained and there's no way to use your legs to cushion the impact. Unsurprisingly WWE banned it in 2003, but it's still used by wrestlers in other, more reckless promotions, such as by [[Wrestling/CheerleaderMelissa Mariposa]] on Wrestling/LuchaUnderground.
