* ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' lists game functions as taking up the same memory as upgrade chips ([[PlayerCharacter 2B's]] an android). One of them is her OS chip, which carries the warning that removing it is fatal. [[SchmuckBait guess what happens when you remove it like any other powerup?]] [[spoiler:The game cuts to black, and after a loading screen, the credits fly past in less than two seconds before dumping you back at the main menu. 2B ending up DeaderThanDead by removing her own OS chip is a legitimate ending - albeit not a very satisfying one.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' you can get a scroll that boosts your acrobatics to insane levels. For three seconds. This means you jump like Supes. And then die once you hit the ground. Oh, and did I mention you get the scroll from the corpse of the guy who was testing it out, crashing -- and dying -- ''right in front of you?''
** Of course, they are called the "scrolls of [[GeniusBonus Icarian Flight]]." (Although this does raise the issue of OrphanedEtymology.)
** Not a perfect example, since it is quite possible to find a use for it - Slowfall, at any power, removes ''all'' falling damage (and synergises well in other respects), a spell of levitate halts the fall in favour of, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin levitation]], and [[SoftWater falling in water]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'':
** The [[LethalJokeItem Scrolls of]] [[IcarusAllusion Icarian Flight]] are this if used without proper protections. They are scrolls that [[InASingleBound boost your Acrobatics]] to the point where
you can get easily leap across the entire island of Vvardenfell. However, they wear off after only a few seconds, meaning you'll no longer have the power to land safely. (Which is precisely what happened to the scrolls' inventor and previous owner, who you witness ''crashing and dying right in front of you''...) You can avert this, however, by using a Slowfall spell, Levitation spell, or a second scroll before you land, or simply land in [[SoftWater deep enough water]].
** A sidequest in the ''Tribunal'' expansion requires that you kill Gedna Relvel, a lich and notorious DamageSpongeBoss. You can loot the legendary Robe of the Lich from her corpse. It has a nifty enchantment
that boosts your acrobatics to insane levels. For three seconds. This means you jump like Supes. And then die once you hit Magicka by 300 points...but drains your health by ''600''. Equipping it is instant death for all but the ground. Oh, and did I mention you get the scroll beefiest PlayerCharacter, which your [[SquishyWizard typical mage]], who would benefit most from the corpse of the guy who was testing it out, crashing -- and dying -- ''right in front of you?''

Magicka boost, certainly would not be.

* A handful of actions in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' will do nothing useful and just harm you or your creatures. For example, ''normally'', when you cast [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=420833 Progenitor Mimic]], you target another creature and the Mimic become a copy of that creature [[MookMaker that makes more copies]]. However, the ability responsible specifies "may", which means you don't ''have'' to do any of that, in which case "Progenitor Mimic enters the battlefield as a 0/0 Shapeshifter creature and is probably put into the graveyard immediately."

* "VideoGame/{{MUGEN}}" has the F1 key, which immediately KOs Player 2. Someone even made a F1 character based off this.

* In [[{{VideoGame/Wasteland2}} Wasteland 2]], the museum of Ranger Citadel (player's homebase) contains a live Davy Crockett tactical nuke in mint condition, with a blinking red button on it that the player can press (killing the party, wiping out Ranger faction and ending the game). [[spoiler:And you will: the nuke is a ''ChekhovsGun'', facilitating the happy-end explosion.]] A more obscure example is the big red button in a dead-end of a sewers complex. The game warns you that pressing it without knowing would be unwise. Earth shakes slightly when you do. Later, [[spoiler:you find a small location with a single man and a building containing yet another Big Red Button. After pressing it, earth shakes again, and the man laments that "You have doomed us all!". Sadly, there are no more apparent consequences, maybe because it's all just a [[http://kotaku.com/it-took-a-year-to-find-out-what-the-red-button-in-waste-1735456665 silly, long-winded pun]].]]

* While fighting a T-rex on the second boss level in ''TheLostWorld'' for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, you have to hit your vehicle on it while it is stunned to send the dinosaur into an electric fence. Try to bump into the dino without stunning it and you'll get eaten.
