** Zig-zagged in ''Videogame/SunlessSea''. The Name is still a foolish, haunted journey to the center of madness. The Name is still something humanity shouldn't know. Your [[DefectorFromDecadence ex-Dawn-Machine]] navigator knows what it's really good for- sailing beyond the world to party with one of the very few [[CosmicHorrorStory not-totally-evil]] gods in the universe. The key here is that it's treated as a glorious journey undertaken for its own sake, and the player must willingly and [[AbstractApotheosis literally]] abandon everything that makes them human. By the way, the win condition is called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Exaltation.]]

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

* The magic of [[IKnowYourTrueName Naming]] in ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'' requires the Namer to gain an intuitive understanding of the target, grasping everything in its history that shaped it into what it is. This is explicitly impossible for the conscious mind to handle. Namers slip into a passive state of HyperAwareness to manage it, but the powerful ones tend to live a bit at odds with what most people consider real, and the University has a sizable asylum for the people who get too close to the subject material.
