* ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' has a rather tame version of this. The Ruins of Alph contain puzzles which you can solve, but once you do, the floor drops out from under you and strange creatures attack you with mystical power. The remakes have that, plus the Sinjoh Ruins, that you access from the Ruins of Alph by having Arceus as your lead Pokemon. No traps or danger there, though, just a big MindscrewEvent.

* The ''Franchise/WildARMs'' 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.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': Vvardenfell's plentiful Daedric ruins primarily fill this role. Once upon a time, they were used by the ancient Daedric-worshipping Chimer. However, after the Tribunal Temple formed and banned Daedra worship, they became prime real estate for cultists, bandits, necromancers, and any other hostile outlaws.

** The original ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' was a series of Basements of Doom.

to:

** The original ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' was a series of Basements of Doom.Doom beneath the Tristram Cathedral.


Added DiffLines:

*** The first story arc of Act I takes place in the same Cathedral as the first game and later in the act the player visits a sacred Nephalem temple.
*** In Adventure Mode the player can visit the Temple of the Firstborn, where angels and demons first birthed the Nephalem. It's been overrun by an evil cult led by [[spoiler:the demonic Lord of Envy]].

* Some ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' gamebooks featured such a place. Actually, one of the books is titled ''Temple of Terror''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' begins with a Temple of Doom. There's no justification for it in game or real world history, but it's so Doomy that surviving instantly makes you TheChosenOne, even though one of your tribesmen are waiting for you inside.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' begins with a Temple of Doom.Doom called the "Temple of Trials". There's no justification for it in game or real world history, but it's so Doomy that surviving instantly makes you TheChosenOne, even though one of your tribesmen are waiting for you inside. Fans hate it as it forces you to run around in a temple killing overgrown ants with a spear at best and heal with medicine that makes it harder to hit and then fight a fellow tribesman with only your fists, all the while using a character who will most likely not built for such a dungeon. You can talk him out of a fight if your speech is good enough (~30-40% should be good enough) but if not well...

* VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft has one or two dungeons that fit, but the best example is probably the Sunken Temple. A large temple to the serpent god Hakkar, sunk beneath the waters of a lake, hence the name. Infested with dragons and zombie trolls.
** Also the Black temple. Filled with demons, crazy orcs, a big bad and an eldritch abomination.
** Most of the troll temples/ruins qualify (Zul'Gurub, Zul'Aman...)

** The Temple of Ahn'Qiraj.

to:

** The Temple of Ahn'Qiraj.Ahn'Qiraj is a massive temple that houses the body of the Old God C'thun, tended to by his insectoid servants.
** The Tomb of Sargeras was originally a massive temple dedicated to Elune, patron deity of the Night Elves and is even built upon a Titan facility, doubling the holiness. Then Aegwynn sealed Sargeras's corpse inside, where it proceeded to corrupt the building and its inhabitants.
