* From the ''FatalFrame'' series: This is the fate that has befallen [[spoiler: Miku. After the events of I, [[SurvivorsGuilt she feels guilty about leaving his brother behind]] even though [[IChooseToStay said brother decided to do so of his own volition]]]]. [[TraumaCongaLine The guilt caused her to become cursed in III]] and, [[PleaseDontLeaveMe when she sees his spirit, she runs after him to rejoin him]], [[spoiler: resulting in her giving birth to [[HalfHumanHybrid a daughter]], which drastically shortens her lifespan]]. Depending on which ending the player gets in V, she's either alive but still dying or DeadAllAlong.

* In ''VideoGame/FateExtra CCC'', in the Gilgamesh route, the protagonist is forced to surrender all three Command Seals in order to contract Gilgamesh as their Servant when they get kidnapped to the Far Side of the Moon. This means that, even if they do manage to escape the Far Side and get back to the Holy Grail War on the Near Side, they will be immediately deleted by the Moon Cell since having no Command Seals means they cannot have a Servant, and Gilgamesh himself is [[StoryBreakerPower too broken]] to be allowed in the Holy Grail War. Gilgamesh repeatedly brings this up, asking why the protagonist fights so hard to get back when they know that death is all that awaits them should they succeed. [[spoiler:In the end, Gilgamesh has grown too fond of the protagonist to let them die, and sacrifices 90% of his treasury in order to give the Moon Cell's rules the metaphorical finger and steal the protagonist away to a distant world where they can continue adventuring.]]

** The events after the TimeSkip focus heavily on this particular plot point. [[spoiler: Marley refers to it as a "Tenure", and begins the process of selecting the next Warrior in the final years. Gabi, Falco, Udo, and Zophie are all candidates being considered to inherit the Armored Titan from Reiner (who has 2 years left), while Colt has been selected to inherit the Beast Titan from Zeke in a year's time]].
* At the end of ''Manga/AyashiNoCeres'', it's revealed that [[spoiler:Tooya has only a year or two left to live]]. Both [[spoiler: Tooya and Aya]] know it, hence the scene where [[spoiler: Tooya begs Yuuhi to take care of Aya and their baby when he kicks the bucket]]. Though he did add that he's not sure.

** A later revealed part of the back story of [[PosthumousCharacter Gold Roger]] is that he had contracted an incurable terminal illness that gave him a limited time remaining to live. Being a badass, he decided that, if he was going to die anyway, he might as well conquer the [[DeathWorld Grand Line]] first. He does, making him the only person thus far to manage it. It's also the reason the Marines were able to capture and subsequently execute him, as Roger turned himself in as part of a ThanatosGambit.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', the flawed [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Human Hybrid]]s known as "Half-humans" have a shortened lifespan compared to either parent race. While their external bodies remain youthful in appearance, their bodies begin to break down as they reach their mid-20s.

* In ''Manga/VinlandSaga'', Bjorn takes a gut wound from a sword. In a setting without antibiotics, this essentially means a slow death from an infected wound and he's aware of it, which is why he chooses death in a duel.

* The {{Trope Namer|s}} is [[Literature/TheBible The Book of Daniel]], in a sequence that gives us ''three'' common phrases. "The Writing On The Wall" appears to Belshazzar, the last Babylonian king, specifically the words: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is simply a list of weights and measures, but is translated as a metaphor: "You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting, Your Days Are Numbered, and your kingdom shall be divided by the Medes and the Persians". Belshazzar is slain later that night by the Persian armies that promptly make Babylon part of their empire.
** The Bible also makes mention of how short and insignificant human life is in comparison to the rest of the universe. Your measly life of 80 odd years, maybe a hundred if you are lucky? It is likened onto a vapor or smoke, one moment it is there and the next it is gone as it is swept away by the wind. God who has existed since the beginning of the creation of the universe sees all of your lives, all of your struggles and all of your triumphs as if they were blinks of his all-seeing eyes, they end in mere moments. The message is clear, it is humbling that an immortal, all-powerful, all-knowing God cares enough about you that he intervenes in our lives and how important it is that we take advantage of the days that are given to us.

* One of the driving questions surrounding the ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'' character Mr. Amazing is why he was rejected for assignment for both the European warfront and the home front based Danger Federation. As a Superman {{Expy}}, he's more than powerful enough and he's very willing, too. The Red Panda initially thinks it's his SmugSuper attitude, but that came about precisely ''because'' of those rejections and he mellows considerably after ALessonInDefeat. The answer lies in this trope. Specifically, the procedure that have Mr. Amazing his powers only have him a finite amount ''of'' those powers. Once they were exhausted, he would almost certainly die. In learning this, the Red Panda tries to convince Mr. Amazing to quit superheroics, but he refuses. Having discovered that GoodFeelsGood, Mr. Amazing declares he'd rather live a short life helping people as a superhero than a long life of doing nothing. In the episode "The End of the Beginning", [[spoiler:his powers finally give out in the process of weakening the Nazi ubermensch Tevas enough for the Red Panda to strike the deathblow]].

* In the ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' story "Polaris' Smurfy New Life," the Smurfs learn that Psyches have a degenerative disease that activates itself about one year after their disconnection from the collective conscience in Psychelia, which results in death in a matter or hours or days. The only way it can be averted, according to the Psyche Master, is that the Psyche must be returned to Psychelia and reconnected to the collective conscience, though in the process Empath's friend Polaris Psyche would lose all memory of both Empath and the Smurfs. Fortunately, though, Papa Smurf manages to save Polaris' life without the need for him to return to Psychelia, by having him ingest a potion called the Long Life Elixir, although it has the temporary side effect of turning Polaris' skin blue like a Smurf.
