* ''SpidermanAndHisAmazingFriends'': "Seven Little Superheroes" sees the Chameleon try to eliminate each of the various Marvel superheroes in brutal fashion, one-by-one. He uses drones disguised as each of the good guys in a "kill or be killed" game both for his own amusement and to wipe out those who would prevent him from achieving his goals. However, he finds that he can't kill off another little superhero that came along: Miss Lion! Apparently, changing his shape doesn't change his scent and this allowed the heroes to get the drop on him.

* Your first encounter with Mettaton in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has him forcing you to answer [[UnexpectedlyObscureAnswer increasingly difficult]] game show questions, on pain of having half your health taken away for a wrong answer. [[spoiler: Fortunately it's all part of Alphys and Mettaton's act; if you do badly enough Mettaton will skip to the last two questions, which are impossible to get wrong.]]

* ''Film/TheRunningMan'': See entry under Literature for details.
* The German TV movie "Das Millionenspiel" ([[OlderThanTheNES from 1970!]]) is about a man who has to survive seven days while being hunted by a gang of killers. Prize if he survives: One million German marks. The population can help him or rat him out, as they like. Some people took the film for real and asked whether they could become either the candidate or the hunters. Unfortunately, for legal reasons the movie was forbidden to be broadcast for almost thirty years (had to do with being based on the ShortStory "The Prize of Peril" by Robert Sheckley.)

details. It seemed the dystopian future setting had more televised games like the eponymous one; there was a commercial for another game called ''Climbing for Dollars'' a contestant climbing a rope over a pit filled with angry Dobermans while pulling money off the rope. Partway up a pipe would blast the contestant with gas to try and make him fall.
