* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11181910/47/Yet-Again-Still-Even-More-Fragments Minions]]'' Naruto's apartment building is a massive DeathCourse trapped to hell and back by the other tenants there who are all former Anbu. Naruto even admits part of why he wears orange (besides it being his favorite color) is because it makes him highly visible and thus makes them feel safer.
* Orochimaru's bases prove to be this in ''Fanfic/ATeachersGlory'' which is why Team Inferno simply [[DungeonBypass shoot fire and wind techniques down the air vents to turn said bases into giant ovens]].

* The opening of the "Weird Al" Yankovic movie ''Film/{{UHF}}'' is a loving parody of the famous IndianaJones sequence, right down to the giant rolling stone ball. However, this one can navigate and turn corners.

* The ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' films, but most notably the opening sequence of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' including a corridor with arrows shooting from the walls, SpikesOfDoom and a giant rolling stone ball.
** The Last Crusade: The grail temple is also a death course. There are three deadly traps leading up to the grailís chamber, which is full of fake grails that will age a drinker to death. Finally, the temple itself has SelfDestructingSecurity if the grail gets close to the exit. Elsa Schneider [[CataclysmClimax learns the hard way]], resulting in her permanently losing the grail and [[DeathByMaterialism her life trying to save it.]]

** The Lost Jewelled Temple Of Doom Of Offler The Crocodile God (from ''Discworld/ReaperMan'') contains one of these, successfully traversed (for the first time) by Death. Hearing his progress, the priests note that "a [[IndianaJones chap with a whip]] got as far as the big spikes last week."

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Read It and Weep", JustForFun/DaringDo faces two sets of these back to back, though we only ever see the first. Said course involves thrown axes, fire pits, crocodiles hanging from the ceiling, arrows, and spikes.

** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E5GauntletOfFire Gauntlet of Fire]]", the eponymous Gauntlet is a ridiculously dangerous course through an unstable "flamecano", complete with dangerous monsters, sharp stalagmite-y SpikesOfDoom, and maze-like caves, that numerous dragons run through to reach the Bloodstone Scepter at the end and become the new Dragon Lord.

* In 1972's anthology ''TalesFromTheCrypt'', the abusive manager of a home for the blind gets his comeuppance when the visually-impaired men he's been mistreating lock him in his office and construct a Death Course through which he must exit, with hundreds of razor blades set into the walls of a very narrow passage. They wait until he's squeezed his painful way through it once, then sic his own attack dog on him and turn out the lights.

* The ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketch ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qq7754ZZlE You Bet Your Ass That's a Boulder]]'' shows you how the giant boulder death trap from ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' was made: by a CrazyAwesome contractor who passionately loves his job to absolute ''[[JustForPun death]]''. He works so hard to sell the GIANT ******* BOULDER that you almost wish it ''would'' squish Indy.

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' has two areas that are intentional Death Courses, rather than being naturally inhospitable or dangerous due to damage: The Temple of Pandora (including the Cliffs of Madness), and Hades. The Temple of Pandora is [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as it's explicitly designed for the sole purpose of killing anyone unworthy of obtaining Pandora's Box.
