* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' lets on that a major encounter is ahead when you find The Merchant (and his armory) and a typewriter in the most implausible of locations.

*In a cross with this and LuredIntoATrap, ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' opens with the events described in ''Film/TheTerminator'': John Connor's Resistance attacks the Skynet headquarters, and the shut the evil MasterComputer down. Raiding the place, they discover a time machine, which had already been used to send a Terminator to 1984, and assigns Kyle Reese to follow him... and then one of the soldiers turns out to be an undercover Terminator who attacks John, while lampshading how things seemed too peachy ("Did you think it would be that easy?").

* ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' loves this trope. Just a Save Point? Might just be a mid-point for the dungeon. Just a Health recharge? Okay, good fortune. Health and Magic recharge? Uh-oh. Health, Magic, and a Save Point? Alright, time to go fill my IP bar so this god-damned boss gets whacked a couple of times before he hurts me.

* During a forced DungeonCrawl in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10623866/1/ Sekirei? Is that some new species of little sister?]]'', everyone still alive is notably alarmed when all enemies despawn after Minaka rolls a 1 on a Die of Power (rolls below ten spawn enemies, rolls above ten spawn weapons to use). They realize that whatever was summoned by the die is so dangerous that the other enemies are unnecessary. Given that said boss {{No Sell}}s blasts from plasma rifles (from getting a 16 on a Die of Power), they were right.

* The final stage of any given ''Videogame/{{Touhou}}'' game is likely to be short, easy, and a good way to regain any lost power and probably nab an extend. Exceptions exist, but this is the rule.

*** On the other hand, it is a good way to easily escape to the entrance of the Kalpa should the player be running low on healing items or MP before they have Mana Drain/Meditation, so it's not a total loss if they already raided the Kalpa for it's loot and want out or just wants to save the game to prevent level progress loss.

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Parodied in one ''Manga/PopTeamEpic'' comic - Popuko finds a save point and [[GenreSavvy immediately checks around a corner]] to see if a BossBattle is after it. (She's right on the money.)

[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* Episodes of the docudrama series ''Series/AHaunting'' usually start with people finding their [[BigFancyHouse Big Fancy Dream House]] for sale at a very low price. Obviously, as the name of the series suggests, these houses are haunted with all kinds of nasty spirits.

[[AC:TabletopGames]]
* The tabletop roleplaying game ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' in the adventure "Queen Euphoria" has a situation where the player characters agree to assault a stronghold for a company. The company offers to outfit them. Players will doubtlessly ask for the most expensive and destructive weapons in the equipment list. They do get it. The adventure explicitly says that this should surprise the players and make them realize what type of resistance they can expect to meet.

* {{Eg|opolis}}gmanland in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' has extra lives everywhere.[[note]]At least for PS360 players. Wiis2 players have a fixed number of lives.[[/note]] This is because the level itself is a [[CircusOfFear sprawling monstrosity of an amusement park]] that will [[NintendoHard kill you again and again]] [[ThatOneLevel and again]] until you're ready to break the controller.

* For the entire ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series, before every [[BossBattle]]/difficult section, there'll be a weapons vendor, for you to replenish ammo (and in some games, regenerate health, for some reason). Sometimes, they'll even pop out of thin air.
