Added DiffLines:

* A slightly more family-friendly variation happens in real-life to ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' games. If you forget to visit every so often, you start to lose your town to the inexorable decay of time--without maintenance, buildings become dilapidated, fields are overgrown, belongings rot, and townsfolk leave.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''{{Webcomic/Erfworld}}'': If you fail to pay the upkeep, the unit disappears, and the leader is normally given a psychic indicator that their forces have decreased from starvation.

* In the ''Podcast/ThrillingAdventureHour'' episode "Sarcophagus Now", Frank and Sadie Doyle visit an ancient pyramid where, among the death traps, is a room with hundreds of snakes. It would be quite frightening, were it not for the fact the snakes have been dead a very long time.
