* Every enemy in ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' seems to be under some forced punishment from the town. Especially the second game. Monsters in straight jackets of their own flesh, monsters built into rusty cages... While these are [[spoiler:mostly various characters' nightmares given physical form,]] the film version decided [[spoiler:they were the actual townspeople twisted into monsters as part of Alessa's revenge]].

* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'', you end the game by fighting capital-G {{God}}. You win, but God tells you that [[TheProblemWithFightingDeath your soul will be his when you eventually perish]]. Being a mortal human, protagonist Aleph eventually dies and is condemned to be reborn without his memories in universes undergoing the apocalypse, able to watch it in its entirety but never with the power to change anything. This will go on until the end of time. It's already gone on so long, it's ''still happening'' in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne''.
--> '''Lady in black:''' "Watch, and record the history of the world... Witness the entirety of the endless war between order and chaos... That is your punishment for your unforgivable sin..." Do you understand now? By the will of Amala, he was given a life of eternal torment.

** Although most of Dr. Weil's antics in the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series are "merely" facilitated by the fact that his is immortal - ie, he is still around after 100 years of bitter punishment, and eventually proves [[HealingFactor very difficult to kill]] - at the ''very end'' of the series it goes FromBadToWorse. He figures out a way to use the technology that made him immortal - more commonly known to the players as Biometal - to [[EvilMakeover become superpowered]], [[MegaManning channel the powers of his deceased minions]], harness the raw energy powering his KillSat, and generally kick ass. Zero manages to [[SuperPowerMeltdown kill him]] in this form, but that only solves the problem temporarily, as, again due to [[CursedWithAwesome the Awesome he was Cursed with]], he eventually resurfaces in the MegaManZX series as something akin to [[TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]].

* Raziel from ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'' was cast into the abyss (apparently for the crime of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent evolving faster than his lord Kain]]), and after an eternity-long PainfulTransformation he came back as a NobleDemon with the power and motivation to destroy Kain. In his first game he was also bound to the [[EldritchAbomination Elder God]] who (allegedly) resurrected him, and thus could not die. An unusual example because [[spoiler: Kain not only knew this would happen thanks to seeing the future during TimeTravel, but actually ''wanted'' Raziel to [[CameBackStrong Come Back Strong]] and start a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against him, as part of the ridiculously complex GambitPileup that makes up the series' plot]].

** The ''OldWorldOfDarkness'' RPG game ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' (seen on TV in ''KindredTheEmbraced'') takes this a step further and makes Cain(e) the first vampire.

* ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy'': Subjected to Imhotepd, the eponymous mummy. Particularly bad FridgeLogic too, because the people who cursed him in the first place had to spend the rest of their lives guarding him, as well as pass that on to all their future generations. Meanwhile, the title character attains immortality, has enough power to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, and can essentially try as many times as he wants to bring his former lover back from the dead. In other words, the mummy was CursedWithAwesome and his punishers got nothing out of the deal to make it worth it.

* ''Film/SupermanII'': General Zod and his henchmen are a variation. The PhantomZone protects them from Krypton's destruction, renders them immortal, and eventually it indirectly gives them powers by drifting too close to the yellow sun (and a convenient nuclear explosion).

* Rotund'jere the Necrolyte from ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' was a priest who was purposefully infected with a horrible plague as a punishment for embezzling people dying from it, and cursed with longevity so he could suffer a slow death at the hands of the disease. Instead of dying, he became [[PlagueMaster empowered by it]] and decided to 'share' his new gift with the world.
