* While the ''Franchise/GrandTheftAuto'' games always had a lot of people trying to kill you, they were usually regulated to either gangs or law enforcement. ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' takes it to another level where, on top of the above enemies that want you dead, animals are thrown into the mix. Causing chaos in the neighborhood? Don't be surprised to see someone's dog run after you and it's entirely possible for said dog to maul you for a OneHitKill. Even wildlife like coyotes and cougars will hunt you down if provoked. If playing the game online, take all the above and add other players to the list.

* Hailey, the player character from ''VideoGame/Gamer2'', has been explicitly imprisoned in a virtual reality machine designed to kill her, so this trope goes without saying.

* ''FanFic/LetTheGalaxyBurn'': Moat Cailin. A planet-wide swamp, it contains vicious crocodiles, alligators and lizard-lions, a massive number of ''extremely'' venomous snakes, all sorts of flowers that release pollen that is lethal to breath in and more deadly illnesses that you can even conceive. Oh, and multiple almost-impossible-to-assault fortresses, ancient machinery that makes it impossible for a warship to carry out OrbitalBombardment. There's mention of a 250,000-strong force that landed on the planet, which was reduced to a few hundreds of starved and deathly-ill survivors in just one month. Some characters muse that, to define DeathWorld, the words "Moat Cailin" would be more than enough.

''Series/OneThousandWaysToDie'' documents the myriad ways people can die, from getting run over by an 18-wheeler to brain parasites, and every ([[{{Gorn}} usually gory]]) thing in-between.

to:

* ''Series/DeadliestCatch'' isn't kidding about its title. Among the many ways to die or get seriously injured in crab fishing: Getting hit by thousand-pound crab pots that swing from crane booms and can fall on you if not properly secured. Getting tangled up in a rope and thrown overboard. Getting hit by a wave breaking over the boat and tossing you around. Dying of hypothermia because the water's so cold that you'll only live long enough to drown if you're wearing a survival suit. Getting your ship's hull torn open by an ice floe. Capsizing in a storm. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Smoking too much and dying of cancer while safely on land]]. It's said that it isn't a question of ''if'' you'll get hurt crab fishing, but when and if you'll die from it.

* ''{{Paperboy}}'' is infamous for having everything from runaway lawnmowers to breakdancers to [[TheGrimReaper the Grim friggin' Reaper]] running around the middle of the street for no discernible reason other than to mess with the eponymous deliverer.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' was all over this trope like [[AlwaysChaoticEvil chaotic evil]] jam on toast that hungers for your brains. The old [[http://www.headinjurytheater.com/article73.htm Monster]] [[http://www.headinjurytheater.com/article95.htm Manuals]] are full of seemingly innocuous objects that are actually monsters waiting to eat you. Examples include the Roper (a stalagmite that sprouts a mouth and tentacles), the Piercer (a stalactite that falls on you in an attempt to stab you), the Cloaker (looks like an old cloak but is actually a levitating manta-ray-like thing) along with its undead equivalent the Sheet Phantom, the Mimic (can look like ''any'' innocuous object but canonically resembles a treasure chest), the Green Slime (a corrosive amoeboid mass that looks like typical dungeon muck), the Crystal Ooze (a corrosive amoeboid blob that lurks invisibly in pools of water), the [[CuteButCacophonic Shrieker]] (a giant mushroom that screams when you approach it; it isn't trying to kill you but the curious monsters investigating the screaming might), the Bowler (sentient mobile boulder), the Galeb Duhr (sentient spellcasting boulder with legs), not to mention the ''three different monsters'' (Caryatid Column, Gargoyle, and Stone Golem) that can all be summed up as "stone statue that comes to life and tries to kill you." It's not uncommon for ProperlyParanoid adventurer to take a sledgehammer to any objects big enough to be a threat.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ClarencesBigChance'': From office supplies to ''water droplets''. Also lampshaded, in both cases.
-->"While submerging yourself in water is fine and dandy, you wouldn't want to get bonked on the head with a nasty water droplet! That kind of thing causes injuries, you know. And death."\\
'''Programmer:''' Whatever maniac decided to give [the office supplies] real, beating, flesh-and-blood hearts was sadly mistaken when he said they'd only cause them to be more loving!

* Actually justified in ''Videogame/MetroidFusion'' by the lifeforms on the BSL Research Station. Normally most of them would be peaceful creatures, but they've all been taken over by the X-Parasites and Samus Aran's body happens to contain the DNA of their natural enemy: the titular metroids. [[ItCanThink They can tell and they want her dead.]]

* Beautifully inverted in indie game ''{{Karoshi}}''. Absolutely nothing is trying to kill you, and some things will even prevent your death. Unfortunately, the point of the game is to die...
