* The Deplorable Word in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' is one of the most dangerous weapons in existence--the instant it is spoken, all life in a world, except that of the speaker, is instantly and irreversibly decimated. It's not known whether or not this was limited to Charn (Jadis's home world); thankfully, no one in the series ever tries it again.

Added DiffLines:

* For ''VideoGame/OhSirTheInsultSimulator,'' this is the method of duelling. Both combatants are in a disagreement over what serves as plot, and settle their argument with a MadLibs selection of nonsense. It's possible to hurt one's opponent deeper by hitting closer to home, such as remarking on their sense of fashion, or any relatives if they're dead/in jail. You'll be told after a remark how effectively it hit, so you know whether to abandon a line of insult that doesn't impact them, or to pursue anything that would wound them personally.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', there's a statue in an art gallery that's actually a mage who was [[TakenForGranite turned to stone]] just before he could utter the worst curse in the entire Planes. If you should use an item to unpetrify him, he'll use the curse on you, causing you to die horribly (you get better) and massively upgrading Morte's [[IShallTauntYou Litany of Curses]].

* The ''ComicStrip/WhatsNewWithPhilAndDixie'' strip in ''Dragon'' magazine #72 (April 1983) is about jesters.

* Jasper, the annoying and quite evil critic found in [[WhiteDwarfStarlet Gloria van Gouten's]] mind in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', fires bolts of energy at you (from a pair of giant pens on his hovering theatre box, no less) that, upon impact, turn into cruel, critical words like "Awful!" It's a bit of FridgeBrilliance: since Jasper is the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Gloria's own destructive self-criticism, it makes sense that his words would be able to cause physical harm to the mindscape.
