* What happens to the surviving humans after the human/machine war in ''[[Anime/TheAnimatrix The Second Renaissance]]''. The machines, starved of sunlight, decide to use mankind as an energy source. Citizens and soldiers alike are utterly powerless as machines first experiment and mutilate their bodies, then plug them violently into power plants where they remain stuck in agony ''for the rest of their lives''.

* ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'': As all inhabitants of the underworld have all already died, one might think that the worst has already happened. Unfortunately, [[TabletopGame/OldWorldofDarkness given the setting]], that's just the beginning. Common fates include being torn apart by angry, eternally damned spectres, trapped in an endless maze full of angry, eternally damned spectres, becoming an angry, eternally damned spectre, and being boiled alive in molten ore to be forged into weapons and or objects. Which doesn't end your existence. And you still might end up being used by an angry, eternally damned spectre.

** ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'': The Avatar, the portion of the mage's soul that allows them to perform magic, will reincarnate ordinarily. Thus, ''gilgul'', the destruction of the Avatar, is considered the worst fate possible, as it ends a reincarnation cycle and drives the current (thus, last) one rather insane in the process. Even at their most antagonistic, the Traditions and the Technocracy generally avoid doing this to each other (after all, the Avatar in question may reincarnate as one of their own next time). The only time it generally gets pulled out is when a [[DealWithTheDevil Nephandus]] is caught alive - as they've deliberately inverted their Avatars such that it will [[AlwaysChaoticEvil always reincarnate evil]], destroying it is the only way to make sure the Nephandus is destroyed for good.

** Atlas, who has to hold the Earth (or the sky, according to TheOtherWiki) on his shoulders from the beginning of the world until a few thousand years ago, when the Greek hero Heracles, better known by what the Romans called him (Hercules), builds "the pillars of Heracles" to carry Atlas's burden.

* In the ''[[Literature/TheSilmarillion Silmarillion]]'' fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4641153/chapters/10725203 The Starless Road]]'', Eluréd and Elurín are doomed to remain in the Void forever. To make it worse, they did nothing to deserve it; they were only children when they died.

* Irukandji Syndrome. It is caused by being stung by Irukandji jellyfish and causes the worst pain a human can imagine in their entire body, vomiting and a phenomena called "impending feeling of doom". It isn't lethal to a human unless it is a child or someone with a weak heart. It can't be treated except for giving patients unholy amounts of painkillers to make it a ''little bit'' better. Oh yeah, and the venom takes ''weeks'' to get out of the system, so victims are stuck in this situation for over a month at least. The only reason why most patients don't [[DrivenToSuicide just kill themselves]] is because they are usually under strict medical surveillance and barely able to move.
** There have been a few cases where people swallowed one such jellyfish. Those that didn't die from the blood pressure hike had to be put into artificial coma because the doctors didn't know how else to treat the unimaginable pain. Also, since they get a lot more venom than those who simply got stung, they stay a bit longer in hospital. One case pretty much lived in one for ''over a year''.
* Some people argue about this in regards to Persistent Vegetative State. The people suffering from this are factual awake, can open and move their eyes, some even eat. But they are unresponsive and unconcious like someone in coma and while coma patients sometimes seem to notice their environment (as proven by brain waves), people with PVS usually don't (they are in a legal grey area since they are still seen differently from brain dead people and thus are not considered dead). If a person doesn't fully wake up between the first 6 months and first year, chances of them ever waking up drop down to 13%. And even if they do, the reason they are in this state is because of extreme brain damage, so [[AndIMustScream it might not even be desire-able for some people to wake up at all]].

** [[TheBible Revelation 6:9]] speaks of a time so terrible that people will be [[DrivenToSuicide trying to commit suicide]]... and not be able to. Some theologians suggest that this means people seeking a means to achieve some kind of invincible immortality in this life through technology will [[GoneHorriblyRight ultimately succeed]], but end up [[WhoWantsToLiveForever regretting their success]].
