* ''VideoGame/{{Valley}}:'' When the LEAF suit brings the player character back from the dead, this drains some of the life energy out of the valley, and plants and animals start dying. If you use up all of the life energy, then you have to restart the whole level instead of respawning where you died. You can recharge the valley's life energy by bringing things back to life, but this uses up your suit energy.

** A ritual spoken of only as the Unforgivable Ritual[[note]]Both the rituals name and process are under Taboo so speaking either will alert the authorities[[/note]] gives a massive power boost but has two distinct costs. First, it requires completely dedicating yourself to a cause of your choosing and you become somewhat obsessed with it. Second, and more dire, the ritual kills your true love, even if you haven't met them yet. Both Dumbledore and Voldemort are revealed to have used said ritual.

* ''Anime/YuYuHakusho'' had a MagicMirror that could grant it's user one wish in exchange for their life. Kurama intended to use it to save his human mother's life at the cost of his own, but Yusuke stepped in and offered his life instead so Kurama's mother wouldn't have to mourn him. [[spoiler:Subverted at the end when the mirror spares both due to Yusuke's selflessness.]]

* A ritual used by Sirius's daughter in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11574569/14/Dodging-Prison-and-Stealing-Witches-Revenge-is-Best-Served-Raw Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches]]'' gives a witch the physical strength she would have had as a man and the same potential strength as a man. The drawback is being unable to taste sweetness. She notes that ever since she used the ritual, cake tastes like eating a sponge.

To free his father's soul, Darion impales himself with Ashbringer, freeing his father but unintentionally became a Death Knight himself. "I love you, Dad..."of the Scourge himself.
