* ''WesternAnimation/{{Phantom 2040}}'': Near the end of the game is a level where the player is running on the outside of a moving train. Pressing down+ jump allows the player to drop down to a lower part of it, even when on the lowermost part of the train. Dropping from there (and thus onto the tracks) can only ever result in instantaneous death.
** The above is a common occurrence in any oldschool platformer, as the devs simply didn't think people would be crazy enough to even accidentally do such a thing and didn't code the very bottom-most platform as being 'solid.' Therefore all terrain with a similar appearance could be fallen through, even if it was at the very bottom of the screen. ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'' was an especially large offender since it usually scrolled vertically, yet also made the space below you into a {{Bottomless Pit|s}}, even if you just advanced a single pixel too high.



** Walking to the right of the police station will cause Ace to fall into a pit in an open construction site and die, with no warning.



* In the PC game ''VideoGame/TheNeverhood'', you cannot die. However, once you drain the lake, you will see a BottomlessPit. It is clearly marked "Do Not Jump In. You Will Die!". Jumping in gives you a NonstandardGameOver where you continue to fall forever.



** Walking off the cliff in the Prehistoric era.



** Following Wheatley's advice about [[spoiler:coming back to his deathtrap after you've escaped it will make him lament that it no longer works and try [[EasterEgg and try and try]] to make you leap into the pit the deathtrap was over instead.]]



* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VulQB5iYigQ Karateka]] allows you to [[ViolationOfCommonSense walk backwards off the cliff where you start the game]].
** And at the very end you can get the girl you're trying to save to kick you to death by approaching her while still in your combat stance.

* There used to be these old tricks. In Windows, hit "Win + r" to bring up the run dialog. Once you've done that, type "format C:" (without the quotes). You can get a similar effect on [[UsefulNotes/{{UNIX}} *NIX]] systems by typing "sudo rm -rf /". (In case you [[SarcasmBlind couldn't tell]], this advice will wipe your hard drive.[[labelnote=*]]and possibly any other writable drives you have mounted[[/labelnote]] [[DontTryThisAtHome Do not do it.]]). Or to delete "C:\Windows\[=System32=]", which wipes out most of Windows' system files. However, none of these actually work now. Windows will refuse to do so and informs the user either the drive is in use or it's a system folder and cannot be deleted. Linux throws an error on "sudo rm -rf /". However, nothing does stop you in Linux to delete one of the system root folders like "sudo rm -rf /opt", and you can override the safety catch by tacking [=" --no-preserve-root"=] on the end ([[DontTryThisAtHome don't]]).

Some games (mostly puzzle games) also use this as a sort of ResetButton so the player can suicide and restart if they get stuck.

* In ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'', a few times the player is given a quick-response challenge to shoot or attack something that, if attacked, will become hostile and attack back, while if the player merely waits out the timer, the thing will become calm. This is done to ensure that the player is actually thinking quickly and not merely blindly attacking at the first sign of trouble.

** A box in [[spoiler:the sanitarium]] with a severed arm sticking out is actually a hidden bear trap. If investigated, it triggers a LifeOrLimbDecision where you either break the one weapon you have or [[{{Fingore}} amputate two fingers]]. If ignored, you suffer no consequences.

* Avoiding creating these buttons in real life is a core part of Process Safety design. In a chemical facility, if certain pipes are lined up incorrectly, it can overpressure or even explode a vessel. There are numerous levels of safety devices and interlocks to prevent such occurrences from happening.
