** The ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' series had some memorable ones, such as pinging yourself to death on the jester's door in IV (you vaporize and he opens the door like "huh, guess no one's there"), smoking from the hookah three times in 3 (you become a strung-out junkie), and throwing something at the tree woman in 2 (it rebounds and breaks your monitor). Also, if you play as a thief and try to "pick" your nose with the lockpick, our Hero of Spielberg will deftly shove the lockpick up his nose, into his brain, and die. (Although if you have enough lockpicking skill, he won't die, and you'll get a message that says "Success, your nose is now open!" Hilariously, once your skill is high enough that you can pick your nose reliably, you can ''[[ViolationOfCommonSense use it to build your lockpicking skill]]''.)

Some games, however, have a large variety of unique ways to die other than the standard "take too much damage and then collapse". These are most likely to be adventure games in which you face a variety of perils, but sometimes action games can have a lot of ways to die.

* In ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', the titular Zero has prepared an extremely high amount of ways to kill off the players of the Decision Game. Taking all the timelines into account, the characters are poisoned, blown up to varying degrees [[note]]including [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill the entire facility]][[/note]], gunned down, axed, knifed, starved to death, mutilated, suffocated, crossbowed, incinerated, showered with acid and beat up to death. [[spoiler:And by the end of the game, [[NightmareFuel they remember every one of these deaths]].]]

* The ''Be an Interplanetary Spy'' books might be the best example of all. Almost every two or three pages, you have to solve a puzzle, and there might be as many as two per book where guessing wrong merely gets you mocked for your stupidity and not killed, usually in some bizarre way. [[http://youchosewrong.tumblr.com/post/25438706634/from-be-an-interplanetary-spy-1-find-the This image]] summarizes the matter perfectly.

** Falling down stairs, [[TakenForGranite being turned to stone]], [[DroppedABridgeOnHim being crushed under a drawbridge]], teleporting yourself out of the dungeon thousands of feet into the air, and, to many a beginning knight's peril, by falling off your horse. Each death is then recorded on your tombstone for all to see, such as "killed by crashing into iron bars," [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything "petrified by trying to help a cockatrice out of a pit,"]] "choked on a cursed lembas wafer," or "killed by kicking a hallucinogen-distorted mûmak corpse."

** Because Nethack is also the TropeNamer for TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything, you can also be killed by 'elementary chemistry' -- that is to say, by [[spoiler:dipping a flask of water into a flask of acid.]]

* Half of the fun in ''[[VideoGame/WhosYourDaddy]]'' is playing a suicidal baby who's attempts on their life include drinking cleaning supplies, eating batteries/foam balls/broken glass/raw meat/garbage, electrocuting themselves by jamming items into power outlets or dropping a toaster into the tub, drowning in the tub, and being cooked to death in the oven/on the stove top or in the microwave. The baby seems less ignorant and more suicidal when you realize that baby can slash the dad's ankles with a steak knife to slow him down. No wonder in V0.6.0 the dad can shoot the kid with a taser to stop them from going anywhere.

* In the arcade game ''VideoGame/PockyAndRocky'', besides the standard death animation upon hitting an enemy, there is also a variation of that when you lose your final life, drowning in water, falling into a crevice and emerging out as an angel, being tackled by a baby-like enemy, and one where Sayo-chan is wrapped up by a snake.
