* ''The Amazing {{Spider-Man}}'' on GameBoy featured a level in which you needed to press up and the jump button at the very end to get into a window. Everywhere else, though it may give you a vertical boost, you risk falling to your death.

Added DiffLines:

** You can ''take off your clothes'' for an instant game over, even at the very first screen. The option exists because there is a locker and shower room in the police station, and it will be necessary to remove your clothes so that you can take a few showers. However, if you get naked when you're ''not'' at your locker (which even then has to be open while you're looking inside it), you lose.

* In VideoGame/SaintsRowIV, you are given an option at one point to continue in defiance of the villain, which will lead to the destruction of all you hold dear, or you can turn yourself in and save everyone. No prizes for guessing which option leads to your NonStandardGameOver death.

* ''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 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 Magicka by 300 points...but drains your health by ''600''. Equipping it is instant death for all but the beefiest PlayerCharacter, which your [[SquishyWizard typical mage]], who would benefit most from the Magicka boost, certainly would not be.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', you can eat poisoned apples which kill you near instantly. The reason is because you gain a permanent "Poison" enchantment. The poison never wears off. For non-vital [=NPCs=], they will re-spawn with the buff, causing guards and civilians to spawn and die almost immediately. For vital [=NPCs=], because they cannot die, they will fall from loss of HP, wake up, and fall unconscious again.(These can become a GameBreaker if [[http://uesp.net/wiki/Oblivion:_Poisoned_Apple used properly]] against people you ''really'' want dead.)
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', there's a similar item called Jarrin Root. You're informed of it's massively lethal properties when you receive it as part of a [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] quest to [[spoiler:assassinate the Emperor]]. If you still choose to consume it, well, you've been warned.

** Adding the adjective dead to your character will do just that... [[note]]Applying adjectives to yourself is only possible from ''Scribblenauts Unlimited'' onwards.[[/note]]

to:

** Adding Starting in ''Unlimited'', you can add adjectives directly to yourself. So add the adjective dead to your character will do just that... [[note]]Applying adjectives to yourself "dead", and... yes, you die. Drinking a "dead potion" has the same effect, and is only possible from ''Scribblenauts Unlimited'' onwards.[[/note]]one game earlier.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', the "/stuck" command ordinarily shifts the player a short distance in order to escape being stuck on the terrain. However, if used while in combat, it results in instant death. This can be useful in boss fights where a {{TPK}} has become unavoidable, as it allows the remaining team members to quickly wipe and restart the fight. (Like most other forms of insta-kill, it also does no damage to your gear.)
