* OlderThanPrint: The last part of ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' opens with a warning to readers not to follow the journey further unless they have already turned their minds to the "bread of the angels." Anyone who hasn't done that should turn back and not get lost in the vast ocean of [[{{Heaven}} Paradise]].
-->''"O you who are within your little bark,\\
eager to listen, following behind\\
my ship that, singing, crosses to deep seas,\\\
turn back to see your shores again:\\
do not attempt to sail the seas I sail: you may,\\
by losing sight of me, be left astray."''

* The 2006 Interactive Fiction Competition game ''Deadline Enchanter'' (not to be confused with {{Infocom}} games of similar names) has a warning in it towards the end, where the text implies that completing your mission will result in the death of the being who sent you on the mission in the first place. You're then told that there won't be a happier ending, and that if you can't handle it, you should turn the game off and go do something else.

->''"I'm sorry to inform that this is not the movie you will be watching. The movie you are about to see is extremely unpleasant. If you wish to see a film about a happy little elf, then I'm sure there is still plenty of seating in theatre number two. However, if you like stories about clever and reasonably attractive orphans, suspicious fires, carnivorous leeches, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Italian food]] and secret organizations, then stay, as I retrace each and every one of the Baudelaire children's woeful steps. My name is Lemony Snicket, and it is my sad duty to document this tale."''

* The first trailer of the Netflix Series ''Series/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' features a literal Snicket Warning: Lemony Snicket warning the readers that, when the series does come out, they should not watch it. As a MythologyGag, a clapboard in the scene is labeled "The Littlest Elf", which is what Snicket offers as an alternative in the book's Snicket Warning (the show suggests ''Series/FullerHouse''). Snicket also gives Snicket Warnings in many of the episodes.
** The theme song of the series is essentially a two-minute, musical Snicket Warning from Count Olaf, of all people, in which he implores the viewers to look away in a surprisingly out-of-character moment.

* There's a very quiet one in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine''. The first thing in the game that you see is a big red "STOP" sign. About halfway through the game, you find another one, this one filled with bullet holes. This comes immediately before the first huge twist that reveals the true, deconstructive nature of the game, [[spoiler:the white phosphorus shelling and its civilian casualties]].

* In ''Literature/GoodOmens'', a baby is switched at birth with TheAntiChrist by a cult of Satanists, and the narration pauses for a moment to allow the reader to contemplate the possibility that the cult had this child discretely adopted by a perfectly lovely family, whereupon he grew up to be a perfectly normal and lovely boy who developed an interest in tropical fish. Because you don't want to know what could have happened to him. [[spoiler: It's subverted; we do in fact meet that boy later in the narrative... and he's a perfectly normal and lovely boy with an interest in tropical fish. Because the Satanists had him discreetly adopted by a perfectly lovely family, because of ''course'' they did, what were you ''thinking''?]]
