* HelloInsertNameHere: You get to name your disease.
** Cue people killing the world with "Death By Chocolate," or infecting the entire world with "pedophilia". Or even causing a disease called "Tea Partyism" that begins in the United States, or "Communism" that starts in Russia.
** Anything from other works: [[Franchise/ResidentEvil The T-Virus]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Boneitis]], [[Franchise/{{Star Trek}} Pon Farr]], [[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Geostigma]], [[VisualNovel/{{Ever17}} Tief Blau]], or what about [[MyLittlePonyandFriends the Smooze]], [[VideoGame/TraumaCenter the seven strains of GUILT]], or [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 Uroboros]]? If you get Madagascar, you might get [[MemeticMutation COMPLETE GLOBAL SATURATION]]....
** Other amusing terrors like [[EnfantTerrible Toddlers]], [[BiggusDickus Giant]] [[GagPenis Green Penis Disease]], and [[TooDumbToLive Stupidity]], the last of which actually killed everyone in the world. Yes, even Madagascar.
--> Mankind was brought to extinction by a severe case of Disco Fever.
** Try going for irony and naming your disease "Living".
-->Victory! Living has successfully eradicated all life on Earth.
** "Tumblr" has caused the destruction of humanity.
** For the lulz, you could name your disease after a supervillain.
--> Dr Doom has wiped out all life on Earth.
** Name it after something that humans would normally need to live. For example, "Dihydrogen Monoxide." [[spoiler: Also known as water.]]
** Name it something completely inane.
--> Three has wiped out all life on earth.
** Or the always apropriate: "FUCK YOU MADAGASCAR". Bonus points if it starts in Madagascar.
** [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife Death by "TV Tropes"]], anyone?

Funny note; there's also a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandemic_%28board_game%29 cooperative board game]] of [[NamesTheSame the same name]] where the players goal is to CURE the world of a disease epidemic. It also has a reputation for being fairly challenging. [[{{Irony}} Interesting]], [[HilariousInHindsight eh]]? (In addition, an [=iOS=] version was released.)

** Also inverted in the second game when humanity attempts to create a cure. There's a random chance it will fail, making your disease immune to all future attempts to cure it.
