* ''[[VideoGame/{{Postal}} Postal 2]]'' has the "It's sterile and I like the taste" achievement, which requires you to make your character piss onto their own face.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Postal}} Postal 2]]'' has the [[Film/DodgeballATrueUnderdogStory "It's sterile and I like the taste" taste"]] achievement, which requires you to make your character piss onto their own face.


* All of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'''s [=PlayStation=]-based achievements are taking the piss out of the achievement system as a whole. They're either for anticlimactic things (acquiring one, two, three, or four items); reaching new areas of the game, which is required by the story; or for entirely superfluous, waste-of-time events (donating various amounts of money to the Dog Shrine). The platinum trophy at the end? "[[TakeThatPlayer Don't You Have Anything Better to Do?]]". Doubles as a WriterRevolt, since the only reason any of these achievements exist is because Sony requires that all [=PlayStation=] games have achievements, whereas Toby didn't like the idea of forcing the player to do certain things.

* Earlier installments of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' deduct points from your score for things such as dropping items while trying to use them, [[ExplosiveStupidity blowing yourself up with bombs or capsules]], allowing your shield to break, [[CombatPragmatist taking cheap shots]], and making no attempt to recover after being knocked off the stage. And you ''have'' to get all of them if you want the Diskun trophy (which requires you to earn every bonus and penalty in the game.)

The third is "The Circle of Death", which requires either you or another player to retrieve your dead body (which, obviously, requires you to die first.) The fourth is more of a WhatTheHellPlayer achievement called "Wait! Don't Kill Me!" which requires you to kill [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential 10 friendly machine lifeforms.]]

* In ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'', you get an achievement for dying in the tutorial mission.
