* ''{{Series/Beyond}}'': Arthur believes journeying into the Realm (in the belief it's the afterlife, which living people can visit) is a very bad idea. He appears to be right, as it's not only unclear if the Realm really is the afterlife, but there are dangerous things there which do not want people of our world visiting.

* ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'': Aside from the horrible bioengineered {{EldritchAbomination}}s that threaten the town in ways that defy creation, you end up discovering THE TRUTH: [[spoiler:humanity was created by an EldritchAbomination known as the Heart of Darkness, possibly as an incubation regulator, so that their millions of children may one day be born by blowing up the planet. Half your party dies to kill ONE of them. ONE. A SINGLE Heart of Darkness was enough to fuel and control EVERYTHING wrong with your estate]]. The sheer horror of this truth drives the player character to suicide.

** The Correspondence is this to a T. Not only is one glyph from it described as "punctuation. Protection. A legal token. An illegal weapon. A punchline. It's an odd language." But once your character has learned enough of it [[spoiler: the glyph's will occasionally force themselves to the front of your characters mind and make them contemplate what they mean in full]]. Think that doesn't sound so bad? Several of the glyph's will spontaneously set the area around them (read: you) on fire. These are some of the tamer ones.

** 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 ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', Mahiro goes to visit the rooms Nyarko, Cuuko, and Hasuta have set up for themselves using a BiggerOnTheInside alien device. In Hasuta's room, he notices that all the corners are covered in putty; when he asks why, Hasuta says [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness very seriously]] that he's better off not knowing the answer.[[note]]Since ''Nyarko'' is based off of the CthulhuMythos, presumably Hasuta is trying to proof his room against [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hounds_of_Tindalos Hounds of Tindalos]].[[/note]]
