** A contestant in the 70's version was given a large box of candy at the beginning of the show and refused every offer to trade it to other contestants for unknowns. At the last possible moment (before the playing of the Big Deal) she relinquished it for a curtain (at which point the entire audience [[GenreSavvy knew what was coming]]). Inside the candy? ''$5,000'', one of the largest hidden cash payouts the show ever offered. (She got Zonked, obviously.)

* The trope was actually played very seriously in the penultimate episode of ''Series/PowerRangersSuperSamurai''. Lauren, Jayden's big sister, had mastered the sealing symbol, something that has been constantly said as the one thing that can banish BigBad Master Xandred to the Netherworld forever. During a vicious battle with Xandred, Lauren uses the symbol on him, and just when it looks like it worked, [[spoiler:Master Xandred effortlessly destroys it. Earlier, he had absorbed a dying Dayu's body, and her human essence gave him immunity to the symbol. What makes this really depressing is that Lauren herself said that [[AllForNothing everything she had ever done had been for that moment]]]].

* In Quebec, a type of bowling called Rubberband Duckpin is typically played; it's played like 10-pin, but with duckpins, small balls, the pins have rings on them like 5-pin, and pinsetters have the pins attached to strings (for those unfamiliar, the machine basically "reels" the pins back up and drop the relevant ones back down between balls). [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGUJ2Yu8xX0 This man was just one strike away from a perfect game]].
