* In ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'', From season 8 onward (Sharon Miller's tenure as head writer), almost all plots follow this, where a character must make one mistake three times in a row before realizing what they did wrong, and then things get {{Anvilicious}}. Many fans have referred to this as the "Three-Strike Formula". This got toned down by Season 17, when Andrew Brenner took over as the head writer.

** Spike knocks down the 'Welcome to Sunnydale' sign three times. Twice by driving his car into it, [[spoiler: the third time by using a magical amulet to destroy the Hellmouth and Sunnydale along with it. Subverted, because the first two are played for humour where the third is a consequence of Spike's sacrifice. As the Scoobies look out over the crater that used to be their home, Giles asks, "I don't understand. What did this?" Buffy answers simply, "Spike." Then the sign falls into the hole.]]

* Survivors in ''Videogame/DeadByDaylight'' can be impaled on a meat hook only three times. The first time, they are able to try and struggle free. The second time, you only have half the bar to give you less time. Be snagged again, and it is instant death.
