* Franchise/{{Superman}} once had to catch ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, who at the end of the previous adventure had been hurtling unconscious through the dimensions. ComicBook/TheSpectre tried to stop him from pursuing; naturally he fights back; and naturally he can't even budge the Spectre physically or otherwise. Eventually the Spectre convinces Superman that following Supergirl would lead him into realms that no mortal should witness (implied to be Heaven. Supergirl was unconscious, so it wasn't a problem for her.) When Superman asks for the Spectre's help, he responds "Of course; you only had to ask," and simply teleports Supergirl to them.

*** One SCP follows the concept more literally is a vending machine capable of producing any drink put into it, ranging from coffee to a "[[ImAHumanitarian Cup of Joe]]". One drink in particular, described as the 'best drink in the universe', causes one to [[BrownNote commit suicide]] when consumed, as humans are apparently not biologically equipped to experience such a taste.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''{{Rifts}}'' Atlantis {{Sourcebook}}, there is a permanently open Rift in the pyramid at the Azlum the Asylum, which leads to a dimension of pure light. No one knows what is on the other side, anyone who looks directly into the Rift goes insane (hence the Asylum), changes CharacterAlignment, and gains PsychicPowers.

* [[EldritchLocation The Nightmare Realm]] of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is one of these. [[spoiler: Fiddleford [=McGucket=]]] accidentally gets sucked into it for a brief time, and when he comes out, [[spoiler:he's]] so horrifically traumatized that [[spoiler:he]] deliberately and repeatedly wipes [[spoiler: his]] own memory to the point of permanent brain damage, rendering [[spoiler: him]] a babbling fool.

** The Silence are a religious order, who believe that if the Doctor's true name is ever spoken, it will lead to the end of the universe. Knowing that he will be asked "The Question" on the Fields of Trenzalore, where he ''must'' answer truthfully, they plan to kill him before he ever reaches there.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': After seeing Ed Wood's ''[[SoBadItsGood Bride of the Monster]]'', the line "He tampered in God's domain," became almost a CatchPhrase for Crow T. Robot.

** In ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', {{God}} REALLY doesn't like it when people look inside the Ark of the Covenant. ThoseWackyNazis end up learning this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0APF3SO9tqE the hard way.]]

* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', the destructive potential of fireworks that [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen]] starts researching obsessively is regarded as this by his parents and the [[{{Seer}} Soothsayer]]. It is for that reason Shen's parents haven't researched fireworks further as they are dangerous already when used to entertain people.

* The ''Franchise/Nasuverse'' has the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, a special ability which allows people to "see" death, in the form of lines across everything that can be cut through in order to instantly kill or break apart the object. However, not only is the human mind not meant to comprehend actually seeing the concept of death, the fact that the lines are literally ''everywhere'' constantly reminds the user of the fragility of everything that exists. The comprehension is enough that [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Shiki Ryougi]], who was already borderline psychopathic before she got the eyes, immediately tried clawing out her eyes when she realized just what her eyes were seeing. Meanwhile, [[VisualNovel/Tsukihime Shiki Tohno]] doesn't freak out nearly as badly initially, but continual use throughout the story degrades his health and strains his brain as his eyes get more powerful and start showing him the death of things he shouldn't normally be able to comprehend (like buildings and concepts).

* "The Subject Is Closed", a Creator/LarryNiven short story set in the Draco Tavern, involves a priest asking one of the ubiquitous Chirpsithtra (who seem to know everything about anything) about the existence of God. The Chirp responds with a story of a race of beings who set about to prove the non/existence of an afterlife. The Chirps lost contact with them and the next time a trade ship visited, they found the entire race had calmly and orderly committed suicide. Whatever they had discovered, it was something that had convinced the entire race they were better off dead, and something the Chirps were not particularly interested in knowing. Rick later explained relating this particular story was the Chirp's way of politely saying "none of your business."
