* In ''Film/LayerGame'', japanese actress and gravure idol Ayaka Komatsu, as herself, is playing a fight game in which her avatar fights various adversaries while wearing a different cosplay for each level [[http://www.toku-onna.fr/ayaka%20komatsu/layer_game/1420.jpg (There's even one where she's dressed as a kangaroo!)]]. Each level ends with her avatar being victorious or getting killed by her oponents. After completing every levels, she discovers the game features an hidden level. When she chooses to play it, [[http://www.toku-onna.fr/ayaka%20komatsu/layer_game/03114.jpg ninjas enter her room and murders her offscreen]]. We only hear her screaming while her computer's screen reads "game over".

* ''VideoGame/LakeviewCabinCollection'' has the Lacus Lamia NES game in ''Part V'', which will summon the Witch out into the real world. Though this is [[spoiler:a subversion, as she does not attack the teenagers, and is actually needed to get rid of the killer]].

* A scrapped concept from ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' involved the "Manhack Arcade", where some of the Manhacks (read: flying killer robots with spinning razor blades) in the game world would be controlled by ''arcade machines'' being played by your fellow humans, who would have no idea they were actually killing people.

* ''{{VideoGame/Polybius}}'', an (thought to be fictional) arcade game of American youth and urban lore that's become ubiquitous thanks to the Internet. The game, so the story goes, is a ''{{Tempest}}'' knock-off that appeared in Portland arcades in 1981. The children who played it suffered from all three of the symptoms detailed above before [[DrivenToSuicide killing themselves]] in the middle of the night. The game disappeared shortly afterward, as suddenly as it had come - in some tellings, wheeled away by mysterious [[TheMenInBlack men in black]]. Someone actually decided to make a [[{{Defictionalization}} Polybius game]], purposely simulating elements found in the mythology (subliminal messages, supernatural things, and so on). Of course, they can be toggled on and off. [[http://www.sinnesloschen.com/1.php See it here]].
