In the late 80s, early 90s versions of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, just before catching the criminal the very last "you're getting close" animated cutscene that would play would involve a threat to your life. This would be in one of the following forms: a thrown axe, a gunshot, a long dagger/sword, a dropped bag of cement, or a dropped flower pot.

I've been looking for a screenshot of the flower pot for 10 years. Can't find one. Internet, can you help me?

@tomasino closest I found on Yandex Image Search... This screen shot looks to be from the ~1987 version I had as a kid (except I only had a CGA monitor).
