* The ''ComicBook/HackSlash'' miniseries ''My First Maniac'' featured an old arcade game called ''Bludbus'', which urban legends state was banned due to causing things like suicidal and homicidal thoughts (undoubtedly inspired by the real-life urban legend of the Polybius cabinets). The slasher of the story, Grinface, was a normal boy who was either possessed by the game after his death, or was so obsessed with it he simply decided to adopt the identity of the VillainProtagonist.

* The rather mediocre ''Film/{{HellraiserHellWorld}}'' used this as a premise to try to [[DoingInTheWizard Do In the Wizard]]. In the movie, Hellworld and the Cenobites and other mainstays of Hellraiser franchise are treated as part of a video game, and the premise is that after a young man kills himself because of playing too much Hellworld, his father sets up an elaborate scheme to kill the friends who did not come to the young man's aid by making them believe Hellworld is real via the use of hallucinogens and some theater. Then the film reverses course to [[DoingInTheScientist Do In the Scientist]] when it turns out that Pinhead, the Cenobites, and Hellworld all do exist.
