** "Justice" has the planet of the Edo, whose [[DystopianEdict seemingly-utopian]] peace is maintained by selecting a random portion of the planet every day to be a "punishment zone", wherein ''any'' kind of law-breaking, [[AllCrimesAreEqual no matter how small]], [[DisproportionateRetribution will result in being executed on sight]] by "Mediators", who are the only ones allowed to know where the punishment zone of the day is. Did you accidentally break their "don't step on newly-growing flowers" law? Chances are, you're safe. But ''also'' chances are this happens in a punishment zone and now two guys have surrounded you and are administering a lethal injection to you. And no, exceptions are not made if you don't know about this (e.g. due to being a visitor from another planet and not being informed of this specific custom until you ask). Wesley learns all of this the hard way.

The entire point of this system is that if no one knows where the punishment zone is, then they won't dare take the risk, even if the zone is a room-sized area of grass on the other size of the planet.

** The Season 3 Inhumans arc contains a healthy dose of it: It's basically the ''Series/{{Alphas}} example above, but worse because not only could anyone around you turn out to have some terrifying superpower, YOU could turn to have some terrifying superpower and you wouldn't know until it manifested. This power may or may not be something you can control and it can be unlocked by something as mundane as taking the wrong fish oil supplement.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' gives us the episode "Schisms", in which crew members are abducted by aliens from another universe in their sleep and subjected to bizarre experiments. This is even more terrifying than it sounds because a) episodes are usually shown late at night right before bedtime, and b) [[spoiler: some unknown thing manages to escape into our universe before the rift is closed. This cliffhanger was never resolved, so that thing could still be out there!]]
