** [[BrattyHalfPint Marion]]'s reason to be so critical of the stage and specially of Sora's use of the trampoline is that her mother, Cynthia, was the trampoline expert of the Stage... but she suffered an ultimately fatal accident: she was performing, fell off, apparently [[TapOnTheHead hit her head]] and and [[DelayedDeath died in the hospital despite having been conscious when she was taken away]].
** Oone of Kalos' best friends, Aaron, was a talented trapeze artist who wanted to pull the ''very'' flashy but dangerous ''[[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Great Legendary Maneuver]]'' and died trying on stage. [[spoiler: This is why Yuri Killian ''hates'' Kalos and takes the Stage away from him: he is Aaron's son, witnessed his father's accident and has always blamed Kalos for his death.]]

* Part fiction, part reality: magicians Creator/PennAndTeller once performed a bit on New Year's Eve in which they had to escape from being submerged in champagne [[note]]actually colored, carbonated water[[/note]] in a twist on an old Houdini bit. Their spin on it would be that the alcohol affected them strongly, being teetotalers, and they would need to be rescued from drowning and taken away by ambulance. Problem: a sizable portion of the audience didn't understand that the catastrophic failure was scripted and reacted accordingly.

** The ''Unfriendly Girls Band'' case also uses this, when the drummer and leaderess of an all-female rock band is somehow strangled to death ''on stage'' without anyone noticing at first. [[spoiler: It turns out the killer, the keyboardist of the band, managed to use very resistant wool and a ''freaking selfie stick'' placed in a vital position to create a makeshift gallow and strangle her bandmate without even touching her. She did it because she believed the other woman to have driven the original singer of the band to suicide (in reality she tried to help the singer in a ''terribly'' misguided way, she died in an HeroicSacrifice, and the victim blamed herself for it).]]
