* In ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'', Vendetta was held in Room 5 (V) at the Norsefire Larkhill "resettlement camp" (actually a concentration camp), and was inspired by the letters smuggled to him by Valerie, a girl imprisoned for lesbianism who was finally killed, who was in the room next to his. This, of course, was Room 4.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', there are four models of MechaMooks used by the BigBad. Types I through III are relatively benign: sure, they might hurt you and knock you out for a bit, but they are not really meant to kill people. [=Type IVs=], on the other hand, are the HeroKiller kind, designed specifically to make people (especially mages) very dead. In addition to redshirts, their rap sheet almost included the title character herself and [[spoiler:Vita]] by the end of the series. And it's also probable that they killed [[spoiler:Subaru and Ginga's mother Quint when they showed up, and Lutecia's mother Megane barely survived]].
** For that matter, the four Wolkenritter, harbingers of the destruction the Book of Darkness will bring.

* In ''AkumaNoRiddle'', Chitaru is out for revenge on Angel Trumpet, a merciless assassin who kills for fun, doesn't care if the victim is innocent, and uses [[PoisonIsEvil poison]]. Chitaru knows her target is a student in Class Black but doesn't know which one. She should have remembered her numerology: Angel Trumpet is number 4 in class order and is staying in ''room'' 4.

* ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer}}'' and ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer 40000}}'' have the four evil Chaos Gods, omnicidal eldritch creatures that feed on emotions and mess around with the real world for the lulz. They are the main antagonists of both settings. 40k also had the four C'Tan, the material gods of the Necrons, though those have been broken into pieces and can be used like forces of nature in weapon form. Games Workshop has since filled out their ranks a bit, though in order to differentiate them from the Chaos Gods.

** The fourth dungeon in various ''Zelda'' games refer to this as well. In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', the fourth Adult Link dungeon is the [[BigBoosHaunt Shadow Temple]], which deals with the undead. Similar cases include the Arbiter's Grounds in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', the Maze Island Palace in ''[[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink The Adventure of Link]]'', the entire Ikana Canyon in the aforementioned ''Majora's Mask'' (though the residing Stone Tower Temple isn't too dark, if at all), the Ghost Ship in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass Phantom Hourglass]]'', and the Ancient Cistern in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]''.

* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderman2'': The clock stops with the minute hand pointing at the number 4 at the very moment [[spoiler:Gwen Stacy dies]]. The actual time shown is 1:21, a subtle reference to Amazing Spider-Man #121, the original comic in which the same event occurs.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': When Eric uses a series of tricks to defeat Gruffle for the right of living under Cutlass Bridge, he frames the series of defeats as lessons for his guild junior; "lesson four is death, care to learn it?". This becomes a RunningGag between them as they clash throughout the series. In ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'' Gruffle has become a {{necromancer}} and states that he now knows "lesson four" far better than Eric does.

** It turns out that it is not actually [[spoiler: his death, but his regeneration - something which the show decides to start illogically treating like death after almost 50 years. Not without a huge load of Wangst.]]

** Lavender Town, associated with death because of the ghost-filled Pokémon Tower, is known as Shion Town in Japan. ''Shi'' and ''Yon'' are two readings for the kanji 四.
** Morty, the fourth Gym Leader in Johto, uses the Ghost type. Ghosts are associated with death.

** Done subtly in ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl''. ''Platinum'' introduced a fourth Admin into the astronomy-themed Team Galactic. His name? Pluto (Charon in English), the planet/moon named after the god of death or his ferryman. Additionally, Sendoff Spring, where Turnback Cave, which leads to Giratina and the Distortion World, is, is described on the Town Map as "The fourth lake of Sinnoh that was kept secret."
* ''VideoGame/GodHand'' The DynamicDifficulty has 1, 2, and 3, but the level after 3 is Die.

* In ''[[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Animal Crossing: New Leaf]]'', the music that plays at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjMO1-AZfmM 4 AM]] is ''very'' creepy and a potent source of NightmareFuel, to the point of inspiring several CreepyPasta Dream Towns. Also, [=Club LOL's=] Japanese name, "Club 444", actually reads as "Club Shisho" (who is run by Dr. Shrunk, whose his Japanese name is Shisho). But an alternative reading of the Japanese name, if read directly, can really mean [[PlayedForLaughs "Club Death-Death-Death"]].

** In a meta example, this is the reason why the game is numbered '''0'''4 rather than just 4.
