* ''VideoGame/CodenameICEMAN'' puts you in the shoes of a US Navy officer in command of a nuclear submarine. Naturally, being made by the man behind ''VideoGame/PoliceQuest'', the game is a real stickler for procedure, and you can kill yourself in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wU1GK6e6fg various amusingly stupid ways]].
** Wander into the submarine's nuclear reactor room without protection.
** Flood the ship's airlock while you're not wearing scuba gear.
** Open the submarine's hatch while submerged.
** Run the ship aground.
** The game will [[SuddenlyShouting REALLY take it out on you]] if you repeatedly fail to follow your superior's orders.

* ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVII'': had so many of these, and it took so much effort to find them, and the "Game Over" screens were so mercilessly (and hilariously) condescending, half of them might as well be Easter Eggs. In particular, there is a puzzle that involves a wandering ghost-traveler who died of thirst and now aimlessly meanders about the desert. Valanice can, with some puzzle solving, turn as much salt water into fresh water as she likes, one clay potful at a time, but this first requires her to gain salt water as an inventory item. Giving the Far-Walker fresh water allows him to slake his thirst, but giving him salt water pisses him off. Doing it enough times makes him kill you.

** Also, drinking the fresh water causes a tornado to strip your flesh to the bone in a very FamilyUnfriendlyDeath, the game literally giving you a WhatTheHellHero

to:

* ''Videogame/{{Factorio}}'' 'rewards' the player with an achievement if they get run over by their own CoolTrain. This is to be expected later on as trains can be automated ([[NoOshaCompliance and have no collision avoidance]]), though many players manage to accidentally get the achievement by hopping off a moving train on a rail loop only for the inertia to carry the train back around and crush the player.

* Same goes for ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''. Getting slaughtered by a big badass monster you just encountered is par for the course. Trying to rush through the Undead Burg and getting gutted by a basic [[TheGoomba Hollow]]? Priceless.

Trying to rush through the Undead Burg and getting gutted by a basic [[TheGoomba Hollow]]? Priceless. Players often jokingly refer to "Gravity" as being one of the most dangerous foes in the game, largely due to players accidentally falling off cliffs more often than they would like to admit. In fact, Gravity can even kill hackers who have given themselves infinite health, which nothing else in the game can do.

Yet Another Stupid Death often happens when you PressXToDie, or when it's EverythingTryingToKillYou. Almost always a form of TooDumbToLive.

TooDumbToLive. More spectacular examples tend to be the result of EpicFail.

*** Funny story: At least one fellow on the official forums seemed to think this was some kind of actual rule (as opposed to just being sound advice) and acted as though he was some kind of iconoclast for doing it on a regular basis.

* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', Charon arranges a deal with you if you die where [[AntiFrustrationFeatures you can return to the land of the living by greasing his palms a little]]. Afterwards, whenever you die, he'll greet you with the same disinterest that [[BeleagueredBureaucrat he has for the mountains of paperwork that come with ferrying souls across the River Styx]].

* [=ThunderDome MUD=] is full of these, among them: trying to kill Justice (an invincible NPC integral to the game's court mechanic), drinking gasoline (it's stupid enough keeping gasoline in the same container type as your water), jumping a bike across a river and pausing, speedwalking through a desert known to be trap-infested, and attacking what appears without close examination to be 'a guy' who turns out to be a [[{{Terminator}} well-known self-reviving killing machine]].

Added DiffLines:

** The ''Pre-Sequel'' gives you a new one in the form of Claptrap's Action Skill "vaulthunter.exe" if you invested in "Kick Him While He's Down". Why is that? Because he gains "Clap-in-the-Box" as one of his random "morphs", which causes him to digistruct a bomb and blow ''himself'' after some time. If any enemy dies from that, good for you, CL4P-TP won't need to worry. But if it misses...

to:

* ''VideoGame/TheLongDark'' is sadistic in combining cold, hunger, and fatigue health drains with wolf attacks that knock your condition down quickly. Any one would be survivable on its own; but the character's actual death will be brought about by combining poor planning and bad luck.
