** Namco really didn't want to make a fourth game in the series - they finally agreed to on the condition that it was numbered ''04''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/SuckerPunch'' has a FiveManBand of girls. On the first mission where only four instead of five take part [[spoiler: someone dies]] and things go FromBadToWorse. What's more is that this is the fourth mission.


Added DiffLines:

** The fourth book - ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' - also marks Voldemort's resurrection and the story officially becoming DarkerAndEdgier. It also features the first real case of characters being KilledOffForReal, with a significant death of a major character near the end.
* In ''Literature/TheSecretsOfTheImmortalNicholasFlamel'', the fourth book is titled ''The Necromancer'', and it also marks the point where Dee is declared an outlaw by his masters, Josh makes something of a FaceHeelTurn to join him and characters start dying.


Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Literature/Divergent}}'''s dystopian CrapsackWorld has Chicago divided into five factions. The point where things start going to hell for the society is when one faction is slaughtered, knocking the factions down to four.


Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Series/Charmed}}'''s fourth season features the eldest Halliwell sibling being KilledOffForReal, never to return.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' features the Four Fiends, and the last one fought is an undead creature Lich.

* Actually used as a game mechanic in {{TabletopGame/Kuro}}: when you roll a 4 for anything other than weapon damage, it actually counts as a 0. Rolling too many 4's in a single check can count as a CriticalFailure should the GM deem it so. All in all, rolling 4's during important moments can quite literally mean your character's death.

** If you look at Microsoft' [=DirectX=] history, you'll find version 4 was never released. It was a near term release but all the developers cared about the features in version 5, so Microsoft rolled 4's features into 5. They didn't rename it because it would cause a lot of confusion.

* While US FCC regs normally prohibit customers from choosing specific numbers, T-Mobile company policy specifically requires them to grant any and all requests for a phone number with no '4's.

* Wolf packs are at their most dangerous with 4 members hunting together. Larger packs tend to be less organized and have less experience together, 4 member packs however, are composed of Wolves with plenty of experience working together, thus their successful kill percentage is significantly higher.

Added DiffLines:

* The game show ''Series/PressYourLuck'' had the {{Whammy}}, which not only reset a player's score to zero, but getting four of them total disqualified them from the game permanently; even if there is an all-zero tie, anyone who has four Whammies have already automatically lost the game in addition to no money, so they won't be invited back.

* In "Hard Luck", a Season 4 episode of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', in which Odd is suffering from a case of bad luck from a broken mirror, as the gang are traveling to one of X.A.N.A.'s Repika via the Skid are talking about bad luck -- to Odd's annoyance -- Yumi remarks something similar to the following: "People in Japan avoid anything to do with the number 4 because it sounds like the word for death."

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass R2'', the first person with any screen time to die against Suzaku's new Lancelot Albion is the debuting Knight of Four. In the same series, the Valkyrie Girls, a group of pilots under the command of Luciano Bradley, are four in number- and they are the first to be killed by Kallen in the Guren SEITEN.

Weirdly enough, one of them (Marika Soresi) is revealed to have survived in Manga/CodeGeassOzTheReflection.

* The dreaded Error 404 page.

to:

* The dreaded Error 404 page. Actually one of the more benign error codes -- the 4XX series is reserved for trying to access something the site can't or won't provide them (as opposed to the 5XX series which indicate the site is having technical problems), and 404 in particular just means the page you're looking for isn't there -- but its most common cause is following a "dead link".


Added DiffLines:

** People were legitimately surprised that Sony released a UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 for this very reason. The more superstitious among them were probably quite surprised when it became their fastest-selling system ever and so far the biggest success of this generation.
