** Also in ''Silent Hill 2'' there is a scene when James has to reach into the hole to obtain a key. In SilentHillHomecoming Alex also has two "hole times" and he can even be killed when doing this.

** ''[[VideoGame/Uncharted3DrakesDeception Drake's Deception]]'' has a true example, wherein there are switches located inside suspicious-looking holes in a hidden pillar somewhere in Syria. If you stick your hand in willy-nilly, [[GenreSavvy Elena will warn you just when]] Nate gets his hand nearly crushed, and you take some damage. Nate can also take damage without a warning and complain that something bit him, which foreshadows the re-appearance [[TheSwarm of the spider swarms]].

** ''[[VideoGame/Uncharted4AThiefsEnd A Thief's End]]'' also has this with the first pirate puzzle in Scotland: you have to stick your hand in one to pull a switch to complete a puzzle and open the door forward. If the puzzle solution is wrong, you get impaled with spikes from the wall and floor, which you have to stand in range of to lean in and pull the switch. It claimed a poor soul 600 years prior, and Sam will abjectly tell Nate to check the puzzle again if you haven't gotten it right.

* ''Film/FlashGordon''. While Flash is in Arboria, he's forced to participate in a Death Game (SubTrope of DuelToTheDeath) with Prince Barin. They take turns sticking their arms into a hollow tree trunk that contains a Wood Beast. It has a sting that causes death after tortured madness. [[spoiler:Eventually, Flash pretends he was stung, then attacks Barin when he lets his guard down.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' parodies the Wood Beast from ''Film/FlashGordon'' by using it as a test to see if someone is gay. Xandir had to stick his hand in a hole and if the Wood Beast bit him, then he was gay. It took off his entire hand ([[AmusingInjuries it grew back of course]]).

* In Joel Rosenberg's ''Keepers of the Hidden Ways'' trilogy, the heroes are required at one point to have one of their members take part in an initiation ceremony with the "Brothers of Fenris". The ceremony involves sticking one's hand in the mouth of a statue of Fenris, which will cause it to be burned off. A somewhat shell-shocked war veteran volunteers to undergo the ceremony [[spoiler:and comes out of it stronger than before. The burning was caused by Mjolnir, and weapons of the gods could only be touched by gods without harm; mortals would be burned. But the being who had made Mjolnir admitted he had been distracted while making it, which led to it being able to be picked up by some mortals, though the reason the soldier can and others can't isn't explained in that book.]]

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/stories/473-tennyo-s-easter-chapter-3 Tennyo's Easter (Chapter 3)]] has The Captainís Chest, which generations of treasure seekers had tried to open. Tennyo could only open it because of her regeneration. She had to squeeze a handle to open it and when she reached the handle, her hand was disintegrated multiple times before she could squeeze. Presumably, anyone else trying would have lost their hand as well, just without being able to regenerate it.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' Dipper has to put his hand in a hole on the ground, as part of a test to prove his manliness. What ever's inside of it must have been very painful to touch.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' Dipper has to put ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': In "Dipper vs. Manliness", part of Dipper's manliness training with the Manotaurs involves putting his hand in a hole on the ground, as part of a test to prove his manliness. What ever's "Pain Hole". Judging by [[ScreamDiscretionShot Dipper's reaction]], whatever's inside of it must have been very painful to touch.

* Invoked in ''The Killing Room'' (2009). Several people are locked in a room and forced to take part in a lethal MindControl experiment. At one point a delivery hatch opens, but nothing comes through. One character reaches into the hatch and gropes about, cringing at the expected nastiness...but there's nothing there, it's just another MindScrew. [[spoiler:Only later when he reaches through the hatch, it slams shut on his hand.]]
