Being captured by a pokeball and forced to fight for your life or eating yourself on pacman when being possessed by the ghost.
Not really the worst, but it was funny. It was in "Little Big Planet."
First time I ever played it, it was with my brother and one of our friends. (Our friend got it for me as a "House warming gift.")
The three of us were playing it at my house. I forget the level, but it involved explosives. My brother softly jumped on one of the bombs... Nothing happened. He then jumped higher and it blew us all up.
We all started laughing, but our friend yells "Why would you do that?!" -- which just made us laugh more.
Sure if I looked through my videos I could find some really good ones...
But...I'll just say the Red Line killing me. Anyone who knows what I'm talking about knows the pain...

There was an old game called Lode Runner. In this game, it was possible to get stuck in a place on the screen where it was simply not possible to get out. The enemies didn't kill you there. The time didn't run out. You were just stuck. There was nothing else to do but power off the machine.
At least if you died you could start the level again. But no. You might have 20 extra lives but you're totally screwed and have to cut the power to the game. There was no way to progress, no way to die and start again, no way to do anything.
In Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando there was a similar problem. There is an initial screen where you are flying over the Planet Aranos on a big transport. You have to get to the end before you can get the coordinates to Planet Oozla. But if you've beaten the game once already and are going through again, you may have unlocked the access to the Insomniac Museum. If you restart the game in Challenge Mode (going back through all the levels), you start over at Planet Aranos. If you teleport to the Insomniac Museum from there (as some people have done) you will find yourself unable to get back to Aranos. You will also be unable to get to Oozla because you don't have the coordinates yet. So you're stuck at the Insomniac Museum. And in the case of so many hapless gamers, they didn't have any other save files. OUCH! There was nothing to do but start the entire game over from noob tier.
That really sucks.
Had something similar happen -- only it was in Lufia: Ruins of Lore. Couldn't ever get past this one part in the game, as the game would freeze entirely. Not quite the same as a character dying, but still a pain in the butt.
