Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ExpeditionsConquistador'' has "the Temple of Death" in the Mexico part of the game, which is filled with ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' style deathtraps which can end up doing do a really nasty number on the expedition party, but the player will get richly rewarded if they can make it through.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has several dozen "Daedric ruins" scattered around the country. Each comes complete with a Giant Statue of Doom, Gems of Doom that summon Demons of Doom to attack you when you try to snatch them, and plenty of Cultists of Doom.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has several dozen "Daedric ruins" scattered around ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': Vvardenfell's plentiful Daedric ruins primarily fill this role. Once upon a time, they were used by the country. Each comes complete with a Giant Statue of Doom, Gems of Doom that summon Demons of Doom to attack you when you try to snatch them, ancient Daedric-worshipping Chimer. However, after the Tribunal Temple formed and plenty of Cultists of Doom.banned Daedra worship, they became prime real estate for cultists, bandits, necromancers, and any other hostile outlaws.

* ''EternalDarkness: Sanity's Requiem'' features two: an ancient temple in the Angkor Thom region of Cambodia, that is home to [[EldritchAbomination Mantorok]] (as well as all kinds of traps), and the Forbidden City, which is home to the essences of the [[EldritchAbomination Ancients]] at the start of the game (though not quite as trap-filled as the former).

* The Indiana Jones sequence in ''Ride/TheGreatMovieRide'' is (fittingly) set inside one. In Disneyland and Disneysea, the rides have a deity -- Tokyo has the crystal skull, Disneyland has a one similar to Kali. However, the interior and the traps reflect the first and third movies.

* Website/Website/Website/FunOrb's "Tomb Racer".
* {{Albion}} has the Drinno, the abandoned section of the Druid School. There's also Khamulon that is built on this theme, but it's actually a city.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': The ancient ruins JustForFun/DaringDo explores in "Read It and Weep" and "Daring Don't" are filled with gauntlets of deadly traps, and was apparently built on top of an active lava flow that can ''[[UpToEleven also]]'' be utilized as a trap. {{Justified|Trope}} since she's an {{expy}} of Indiana Jones.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s Temple of the [[{{Precursors}} Ancients]].
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has Centra Ruins and Tomb of the Unknown King, the latter being less spooky, but a frustrating deadly maze.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'''s Ipsen's Castle fits. It's never directly referred to as a "temple", but it serves similar purposes and has traps galore.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' has three lost temples, each with a sidequest that unlocks an [[SummonMagic Aeon]].
* While conspicuously light on the booby-traps, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' has the Tomb of Raithwall, complete with ThatOneBoss, a BonusBoss, and lots upon lots of undead things crawling around. Also the Stilshrine of Miriam. And Giruvegan. And the Pharos at Ridorana. And the Sochen Cave Palace. It makes you wonder why modern civilization bothered to build anything, since there's probably enough hidden temples and lost cities to house a nation.

* The Ceras Lake Ruins in ''SuikodenV''. Ask not, "why give a ''sluice control for a dam'' a complex three-layered lock that can only be unlocked by three buttons on the far sides of a labyrinth, a door controlled by a one-of-a-kind magic rune and fill it with {{magitek}} robot guardians?", because the game certainly isn't going to tell you.

* ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' has some, though the temples are mostly futuristic (the biggest being "Temple Of Doom [[HailfirePeaks meets]] EternalEngine" Sanctuary Fortress from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2''), and the most dangerous aren't contraptions, but post-abandonment inhabitants (or in the case of the Sanctuary Fortress, old inhabitants, the [[AIIsACrapShoot haywire-security robots]]).

* The ''{{Wild ARMs}}'' games are full of these, often just lying around inexplicably, often with fiendish traps that just happen to be able to be bypassed using one of the tools the party has picked up along the way.
* Both ''ValkyrieProfile'' and ''VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile2Silmeria'' have about half a dozen of them.
