If there are common, mostly useless powerups (like coins in SuperMarioBros or rings in SonicTheHedgehog), it's common to indicate pits where a Leap of Faith will be rewarded by [[FollowTheMoney arranging them in an arrow shape]].

* In ''{{Uglies}}'', Tally's journey instructions to "at the second [break], make the worst mistake", mean [[spoiler: to drive her maglev hoverboard off a broken railroad bridge, upon which the board activates from the metal deposit under the river, enabling her to continue her journey.]]

* ''VideoGame/AngryVideoGameNerdAdventures'' both subverts and plays it straight in a fantasy-themed level. It's subverted when the first useful ladder down to the lower level has a pit right next to it. Fall into the pit and you die. Go down the ladder, and the camera will adjust to allow free vertical scrolling for the remainder of the level, and also revealing what could have been a safe landing below said pit. The rest of the level has numerous typical leaps of faith, including one that contains a useful checkpoint right before a parody of the ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'' disappearing block sections.

* Like the ''Donkey Kong'' example below, many of the secret areas in ''{{Painkiller}}'' are guilty of this, specifically in levels where finding all the secret areas or their contents was a requirement for the HundredPercentCompletion. Sometimes you're at least giving a glimpse of the glowing holy items within and no immiadatley obvious way to reach them, but most times they're entirely hidden from view, meaning scaling every ledge and hopping over every cliff, or just [[GuideDangIt look at a guide]].

** The LucasArts computer game version had the same leap of faith test; in the game, you passed if you [[spoiler: didn't hesitate before crossing. If you waited too long, any later attempt simply resulted in a fall to your death.]]

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', Shaamforouz's majordomo blandly invites the four to step onto what appears to be empty space at the top of the staircase in the wizard's luxurious tower. Being both rather GenreSavvy and NighInvulnerable, Paul just smiles at him and proceeds forward along what he guessed was an invisible floor. And George says to the quite flustered majordomo, “Pretty stupid. Did you think we'd think you'd let us fall and make a mess in this posh place, or land on someone and hurt them? Do we really look like idiots to you?”

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': In the Messenger Island from World C, it's possible to find a statue on an isolated island and a bust of a man. There is a Uriel message stating that love overcomes all obstacles. [[spoiler:While standing in front of the bust, walking straight for the statue reveals that there is an invisible path leading to the island.]]



* In WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic, when stuck between a long drop onto jagged rocks and a hungry, furious hydra, Twilight Sparkle panics. Pinkie Pie uses these exact words to coax her friend to make the jump. She actually misses the ledge, but a [[DeusExMachina well-timed swamp bubble]] saves Twilight from drowning.
