Contextualized Player Death is when a game includes the player's death in its fiction instead of just treating it as a thing that didn't happen.

Swearing, cursing, call it what you want. It is an expression of anger or frustration, in most cases.
A box, chest, or similar reward beckons you to come near, but it is actually an enemy in disguise. Sometimes can be difficult to differentiate from a real treasure chest.
