* In season 4, episode 6 of ''Series/TheApprentice'', Donald Trump invokes this on all of Team Excel for suffering the biggest defeat in the show.
-->'''Trump:''' In this boardroom, we've never had a team lose so badly. You're all fired. All four are fired.

* The magnificently awful tabletop RPG ''TabletopGame/{{FATAL}}'' has for the highest level caster ''job'' the spell F.A.T.A.L., which kills everything on whichever horrible planet the game is set... obviously including the caster and his fellow party members. It's also possible to cast this ''by accident'' if you make a bad roll on the [[MagicMisfire spell-fumble]] chart. Now, if only all their campaigns started that way...
** ''FATAL'' could probably actually work as a substitute for this.
---> '''DM:''' OK, you've pissed me off for the last time. We're playing ''FATAL'' now.\\
'''Players:''' ''[[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!]]''

** Paranoia is an odd case here. Rather than being a sign that the GM is doing his job poorly, this is seen as a sign that the game will be very good.

* In the ''Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse'', Montgomery Scott dealt with the KobayashiMaru scenario by attempting a {{technobabble}} trick that worked on paper and therefore apparently so within the simulator, but not in reality. The computer retaliated by spawning more Klingon warships than existed in the entire Empire at the time. As for Starfleet Academy, they pretty much went "ha ha, very funny" and transferred Scotty away from command track to engineering, [[AllAccordingToPlan which was what he wanted all along]].

* How Bajoran [[UpThroughTheRanks ex-NCO]] Kanril Eleya's run at the KobayashiMaru scenario turns out in "Fanfic/TheUniverseDoesntCheat". Eleya attempted XanatosSpeedChess against the computer, initially looking like she was going to try to talk her way out but instead planning to shoot her way clear, and then repeatedly changing her tactics when the computer tried to compensate. The computer finally gave up all pretense of pretending to be a fair test and spawned a Klingon battleship in a weapons blind spot to "kill" her (which just got her mad at the instructors).

** Every GM who isn't Patty Gauzwieler will pull this at one point or another in the comic. The most infamous is Weird Pete's Temple of Horrendous Doom, an obvious jab at the Tomb of Horrors.
