* In LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse of Chalion]]'', the royal family's curse causes every decision they make, be it directing a war or political maneuverings, to have the worst possible outcome.
** More that the curse twists against their actions, increasing the likelihood of failure by mischance or enemy action. Were the worst possible outcome the only option, [[spoiler:they would never have broken the thing at all.]]

* Used in ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer''. The landscape in territories changes to represent the influence of the power who controls it. Provinces controlled by the Empire are farmed {{Arcadia}}s, provinces controlled by the Vampire Counts turn into haunted {{Uberwald}}s, Greenskins turn lands into barren wastes dotted with ramshackle fortifications, tribal totems and [[AlienKudzu giant mushrooms]], and lands controlled by Chaos become {{Mordor}}s dotted with lava flows, obsidian spires and arcane portals.

* In TamoraPierce's ''Literature/TortallUniverse'' series the King eventually gains possession of a jewel that can make the land itself rise against invaders if necessary. Notable in that there is a huge famine as a result of using that power after the King is forced to use it, and as later described by the characters, the power to make the land attack the invaders came from the living potential of the entire kingdom's stores of edible plants - specifically, the stores that would have been used to produce a crop for the next year. Result: a near bankrupt kingdom for several years because they had to buy all the food that they would normally have grown. Not exactly the best start to the new king's reign, but it gets better.

* Agrabah in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' reflected the alignment of the ruler. The good sultan made it a sunny place of wonder, Jafar a dark and dreary land. In the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original treatment]], Jafar's first wish was not only to be sultan, but to ''always'' have been sultan. This would cause a wave of magic to spread out over the kingdom, retroactively changing it to a gloomy and poverty-stricken place (with Aladdin spared because the Carpet protected him by wrapping him up).
