* Yahtzee of ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' is a big fan of this, and believes firmly that it's a normal part of gaming to take the most damaging possible action. He credits it simply to subversiveness - if a game is trying to make the character out to be TheMessiah or a ReluctantHero, then having them instead [[ForTheEvulz shoot their friends and run over old women]] is inherently hilarious. Examples he's given include drowning VideoGame/TheSims, [[WreakingHavok shoving physics objects into faces]] during scripted cutscenes in ''VideoGame/HalfLife'', and eating people's spouses before murdering them in ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}''. Ironically, he's usually bored by games that try to ''encourage'' this, such as ''VideoGame/{{Overlord}}'', simply because it's not fun to do it when the game demands you do it.

* Related to this trope, {{Exalted}} has an inherent metaphysical bond between two player character types. While it was meant by the divinities who put it in place to be the stuff of eternal romances and battle-forged friendships, the nature of the bond between the Solar and the Lunar Exalted has the potential for great abuse, both within the world and with [[MindRape certain magical abilities]] the Solars possess that can subjugate their Lunar Mate even more. There is a reason, after all, one Solar charm was dubbed the Lunar-taming Leash.

* ''{{Spaced}}'' mentioned this in an episode where Tim is playing ''VideoGame/TombRaider''. When Brian notes that Lara Croft is drowning and asks if that's the point, Tim replies that it "Depends what kind of mood you're in."
