* ''TheRevenant'' has many elements of it, though it's not a straight example.

* In ''TheRedTent'', Jacob crosses a fast river ahead of his family and servants, and has his famed vision of angels ascending and descending a ladder or staircase, as well as an alleged fight with one (which results in his thigh being dislocated.) He is shown to have a fever, and the other characters take his visions as delirium. [[spoiler: This is an important point, as it is essentially where Jacob (fearful from his unexpected VisionQuest, and later jealous of his wealthy twin brother Esau) starts to listen to Simon and Levi's influence and [[FaceHeelTurn become corrupt and greedy]]]].

* The premise of the "Shadows of the Jungle" sidestory in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' is an expedition to Guyana in search of Mew. As the story is told in an ApocalypticLog format, you can pretty much guess how it's going to end.

* In 1291, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vandino_and_Ugolino_Vivaldi the Vivaldi brothers]] set out from Genoa in two galleys filled with provisions, trade goods, and a missionary or two. Their intent was to bypass the Venetian monopoly on the overland trade with India and China; it's unclear whether they planned to circumnavigate Africa like the Portuguese would in the mid-1400s, or head west and pull a ChristopherColumbus two centuries early. What ''is'' known is that after passing Cape Nun on the southern coast of Morocco, they were never seen again (although rumors persisted up to Columbus's time that they made it to the tropics before being captured by one of the local West African kingdoms).

* ''Literature/AnnaPigeon'': A small scale version happens to the crooks in ''Destroyer Angel''. After they lose their map, their trek through the forest with their hostages to the rendezvous point takes days longer than it should, as none of them have any survival or navigation skills. They start to fall prey to paranoia and infighting, which is exacerbated by Anna who is following them and playing mind games to keep them off-balance.

Added DiffLines:

* At one point in the ''WesternAnimation/TazMania'' LicensedGame for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, Taz has to travel across two rivers, one headed to the left, and another headed to the right, with a waterfall in the middle. He has to navigate the river by hopping across boulders and logs that slowly sink, and since the controls aren't always responsive, he sometimes ends up landing in the water. If he stays on a boulder too long, an alligator will pop up and attack him, and if he loses all his health, he sinks into the water. Is it any wonder Taz hates water?
