* The comic book adaptation of ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis'' features this (somewhat surprisingly, given the franchise's general use of DurableDeathtrap)-- Indy and Sophia fall into a pit of alligator skeletons, prompting Sophia to remark that it isn't really much of a deathtrap anymore.

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. No one actually dies, but your village is little more than a ghost town by that point.

* 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. If the leader doesn't get such an update, then that's usually due to "Carnymancer" trickery and the ignored death is intentionally orchestrated.

* Subverted in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', as EvilOverlord Xykon responds to his minions' complaints of not being paid/fed/whatever by killing them and raising them as zombies. Because they're just as strong, and cheaper to feed.
