* The premise of ''Comicbook/TheWickedAndTheDivine''. Every Ninety years, twelve gods of the Pantheon are reincarnated into the bodies of young people, all of whom will then die in two years. While none of the deaths shown so far have been natural, at one point [[EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity Ananke]] states that the gods' "divinity would consume them soon enough", a statement which has yet to be elaborated on.

* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'': no matter which way you cut it, all but one of the students on any of the islands are subject to this trope - and the guy who isn't won't be found out until right at the end. Additionally, every character except the most arrogant ones goes into the game assuming they're going to die.
* In the ''WhateleyUniverse'' right now, there's an interesting variant. A young wizardess is trying desperately to avoid the consequences of an unstoppable curse. The variant? Said wizardess is the villainess Hekate, and the heinous curse was put on her by Fey, who is supposed to be one of the good guys.
