* The second act of ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' ends with the heroes meeting the culprit behind the incidents of Pokemon being turned into stone, only to be petrified themselves after being manipulated into helping them destroy the only cure. The next few levels take place in the [[PhantomZone Voidlands]] where the spirits of the petrified wander; the hero and partner characters manage to escape to make things right.

** In ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'', wandering too close to the edge of a cliff cause Guybrush to fall off and a game over screen parodying {{Creator/Sierra}}'s HaveANiceDeath tendencies to appear... and then Guybrush pops back up ("rubber tree").
** In ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge'', there was a scene where Guybrush was suspended over a cauldron filled with acid. When you took too long to get out, you fell into the acid and died -- only to be reminded that you can't die in a story you are ''yourself telling''.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', during Minato's Moon Arcana Social Link rank eight event, no matter what choice the player makes, the Moon will [[YouLoseAtZeroTrust Reverse]] briefly, before ranking up.

* In ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryV'', you have the option of sacrificing your life to resurrect one of two possible love interests. If you do, a pair of undead will hack away at you until your health goes down to 0. FadeToBlack...then fade back in as your character stands back up, your Stamina stat having been cut in half.

** The game pulls
the way you usually do trick again later, when you confront the Assassin who's been murdering people left and right. Before you have the chance to react, he hits you with a poisoned dagger, and even if you take antidote pills your health goes down continues to 0.drop. After you slay the Assassin, Toro comes out to see what all the commotion is about, and your character collapses, "dead", only to wake up in the Hall of Kings, having been saved thanks to the improved antidote.

** The dark dead-end alley sequence in ''SilentHill1'', where Harry has to be "killed" by the demon children to proceed. Then he wakes up in the cafe, not much worse for wear. [[spoiler: In the NewGamePlus this gets skipped and Harry wakes directly in the diner after the opening cinematic.]]
** ''SilentHill2'': Maria's [[spoiler: many deaths]] serve as a sort of Fission Mailed as well, as triggering them outside of scripted events causes a NonStandardGameOver.
** The Nightmare Amusement Park in the beginning of ''SilentHill3'', where Heather gets run over by the roller coaster at the end. Heather can also "mail the fission" at any time during the nightmare by being killed by the enemies or jumping into a BottomlessPit.
** The interactive nightmare at the beginning of ''SilentHill4'', where TheAllConcealingI is accosted by a Victim in first person perspective (it's actually [[spoiler: Joseph's final moments]])..

** SilentHills PT goes with good old HideoKojima's FissionMailed style -- your game may glitch out and restart from time to time. Except you are actually progressing.

* In ''RogueSquadron II: Rogue Leader'''s Razor Rendezvous mission, you can successfully complete the mission by suicide-ramming the Star Destroyer's bridge, just like Arvel Crynyd in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
* In ''TraumaCenter'', this happens [[spoiler:in Under the Knife 2, where Derek loses his Healing Touch and fails a couple operations.]] Hilariously, [[spoiler:it will still say "operation successful", even if you've let Adel bleed out]]. Even more amusingly, [[spoiler:the second of these two operations will yield the standard "The Medical Board will be notified" screen even though ''it's training done in private.'']]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FarawayStory'' has a timed puzzle at the beginning of Chapter 6 where you have to cross a dimensional pathway in 5 seconds, otherwise the pathway will collapse and kill the party. Worse yet, there are all kinds of distractions like banana peels and a treasure chest, which will cause instant failure. Failing will cause a game over screen, but then the game will immediately dump you back to the prior scene where it turns out your failure was just a hypothetical scenario that Pia thought up, with different dialogue depending on how you died. Amusingly, after the pathway is stabilized, you can go back there to open the distracting chest and obtain the game over music.
