* 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.]]

* The ''{{Lobo}}'' story "Unamerican Gladiators" features a deadly game show taking part on a planet that was a gigantic violence-themed theme park. The contestants had to complete a number of tasks, trying to kill each other while avoiding deadly traps... as well as answer some quiz questions to win valuable prizes.

* ''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.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'', there are the Hench-Games, an annual event run by the Adventurers Guild, which are actually perfectly safe for the ''contestants''. However, the games are played using henchmen ''as equipment'', and it's not so safe for ''them''. (Suffice to say that, while this attracts a lot of spectators, those with heart conditions are not advised to watch the javelin toss.) It includes such events as hench-vaulting, synchronized looting, high seas pillaging, dodge curse, trapped-chest handling, and the 200-meter dash-with-cash-a-thon. (The villains try to win by using a henchman shaped golem, which unfortunately, is ''not'' considered cheating by the Guild, who ''encourage'' dirty tricks in this reality.)

* Several Creator/SciFiChannel game shows, including ''Exit'', ''Estate of Panic'', and ''Total Blackout'', have emulated this trope, subjecting losing teams to simulated death traps or dropping them into unlighted pits "never to return".
