* The ''[[Franchise/CrashBandicoot Crash Bandicoot]]'' games:
** The levels "Upstream" and "Up The Creek" in [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot1996 Crash 1]], where the titular hero has to traverse up a river, and of course, [[SuperDrowningSkills avoid falling in]].
**[[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot2CortexStrikesBack Crash 2]] expands on the concept with the levels "Hang Eight", "Plant Food", and "Air Crash" which are much more action oriented and dangerous, as Crash has to rely on a jet board to get up the stream, all while avoiding mines and deadly whirlpools.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Crowhurst Donald Crowhurst]] was a British businessman who entered the 1968 ''Sunday Times'' Golden Globe Race, in which he was expected to complete a non-stop circumnavigation of the world single-handedly. Crowhurst, who was in deep financial trouble, entered the race in hopes of winning the cash prize. Unfortunately, he encountered difficulty early in the voyage and began reporting false positions, which gradually [[SanitySlippage eroded his mental state]] and is believed to have led to his [[DrivenToSuicide suicide]].

The pressure between completing the race and solving his financial woes, or letting his deception be exposed, [[SanitySlippage gradually eroded his mental state]] and as evidenced by his [[ApocalypticLog increasingly rambling logbooks]]. It is believed to have led to his [[DrivenToSuicide suicide]].that he eventually committed suicide by throwing himself in the ocean.

* Quite in the lines of Lope de Aguirre in terms of tough luck (not so much in insanity) is Juan Díaz de Solís. He discovered the "Fresh Sea": Río de la Plata, an estuary so big it looks like a sea. They thought that it may be a good idea to go upriver, set their feet on the land and see if that pesky Eldorado was there. He didn't found it, what he did found was hostile natives, who killed him and his escort in full view of all the men aboard. Taking good notice, his second-in-command decided that it was about time to go back to Spain.

* Some levels in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' have a rapid current that is difficult for Mario to swim in. The idea of these levels is to stay out of the river and use platforms instead. The biggest examples are Yoshi's Island 4 and in particular Vanilla Secret 3, where he has to hop on [[DolphinsDolphinsEverywhere jumping Dolphins]] while a Porcupuffer hunts him down in the river.

In brief: Any river voyage (''or other journey into the wilderness'') is a doomed expedition in which the characters alternately [[KillEmAll die]], [[DrivenToMadness go mad]], [[ShaggyDogStory get lost]], [[GoingNative go native]], or otherwise [[AlmostDeadGuy barely live]] [[BringNewsBack to tell the tale]].
