* Oni Island in ''{{Okami}}'' is a huge deathtrap... which is apparently entertainment for the local youkai. There are even ''rules'' for these areas posted on a small, hard to miss sign right before them. And don't get me started on Tobi, the game master for the largest of these death courses...

* ''Webcomic/ChampionsOfFaraus'': The last room in the House of insanity that Skye and Karla have to go through is this, with SpikesOfDoom on the floor, a PendulumOfDeath right at the end of those, and then [[spoiler: a pit filled with [[MushroomSamba Lunacy potion]] that has a ''[[SeaMonster sea serpent]]'' swimming in it right after the pendulum, who won't let them across unless they [[TheseQuestionsThree answer his three riddles]]. ]]

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', where Papyrus's "final and most dangerous challenge" is to set up a gauntlet of weapons on ropes that are supposed to "swing violently up and down" on command. However, none of the items prove functional--not even [[TheLastOfTheseThingsIsNotLikeTheOthers the dog]].

Added DiffLines:

* Many Source Engine games such as ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'', ''VideoGame/GarrysMod'' and ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' feature a fan-made game mode called "Death Run" where one person is given the ability to set off a variety of different traps while everyone else tries to make it to the end of a deadly obstacle course filled with lasers, pitfalls, spikes, spears, falling rocks, memes, doors that kill you, explosions and whatever else a sadistic map designer might think to cram in there, with the prize often being the ability to lock the trap activator in a chamber which kills them or play a minigame.

* The game shows ''LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple'', ''Viking: The Ultimate Warrior'' and ''Sasuke'' (known as ''Series/NinjaWarrior'' in North America) have these either as stages or take place within them entirely. (The games in ''TakeshisCastle'', known in America as ''{{MXC}}'', are too separated to count.)

* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', the characters are moving through a spaceship based on the one in the TV show they starred in. When there's a Death Course down one corridor, one asks [[LampshadeHanging why the heck]] such a thing [[NoOShACompliance would be in a spaceship]]. The answer is, of course, because it was in the TV show.
