* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', it is reportedly possible, if you're seriously unlucky, to have all your dwarfs be thralled or otherwise rendered non-viable for a working fortress before you even unpause after embarking. In some particularly old versions, bottomless pits sometimes inexplicably spawned with a huge glob of magma hanging over them, and that magma could [[http://mkv25.net/dfma/movie-701-shortestfortever instantly kill your embark party]].

Nowadays, the typical example is embarking on a frozen lake/river, with the wagon carrying everything and everyone parked on the ice; and since you usually arrive at the start of Spring and ice melting is instantaneous as soon as the temperature changes, it's perfectly possible for the ice to melt on the exact second of arrival.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsI'', it's technically possible for that to happen too, albeit a little later during the tutorial, than the sequel. The very first enemy you're introduced to in the first game is a WakeUpCallBoss, who is next to impossible to defeat without a weapon. Said weapon, you first get it after fleeing the boss and completing the rest of the tutorial.[[labelnote:Although...]]You can defeat the boss prior to the proper tutorial in NewGamePlus or by having the Fire Bomb as a starting gift in New Game.[[/labelnote]]
