* In the 3rd OVA to ''FushigiYuugi'', a young girl named Mayo becomes the new Priestess of Suzaku, even though by all logic, she shouldn't be there. She has also become pregnant with the child Miaka had been carrying earlier in the series, and has Miaka's wedding ring. Taka [[spoiler: Tamahome]] goes into the book to gather the other Seishi, summon Suzaku, and set the universe to rights. Mayo enters the Shrine of Suzaku, and the golden statue in there starts talking to her, saying how Taka was really gathering the Seishi to rise up and kill Mayo. Fearing for her life, Mayo asks what she can do to fix this. "Suzaku" tells her to pray for the destruction of Konan, except for herself, Taka, and the baby, promising to keep them safe.

* ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' has a more typical example- [[spoiler:Syaoran]] made a deal with Yuko's evil counterpart, Fei Wong Reed (aka the "person" mentioned above), to reverse time in order to save someone, for the low, low price of allowing [[FanNickname Ass-chin]] to [[spoiler:clone him]]. Oh, and ''[[spoiler:borking up the entire space-time continuum in the process]]''.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Ling agrees to [[spoiler:let Greed possess him, effectively making him into a humonculus, if it means he'll be that much closer to obtaining a Philosopher's Stone and thus the secret to immortality.]]

* Happens in an obscure one-volume manga, ''Ponko from the Stars and Tofu Shop Reiko''. Ponko is an alien salesperson offering highly advanced alien goods to Reiko's family. They settled for a copier (which can copy anything, including physical objects such as money) which will be paid with 'Hahise'. Ponko then [[YourSoulIsMine took Reiko's brother's Hahise as payment.]] Reiko spent the next 5 years of her life trying to track Ponko down for revenge. [[spoiler: In a subversion, the deal was done out of BlueAndOrangeMorality rather than any actual malicious intent. Once this was straightened out, Ponko and her supervisor worked to remedy the whole situation.]]

* Snark, the famed serial murderer from ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'', got part of her killing finesse due to a deal AtTheCrossroads [[spoiler: which gave her demonic killing tools (and a cure for her sister's selective mutism)]]. Because of that very same deal [[spoiler: she never gets caught, as she dies before anyone can figure her out]].

* The Behelits from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' are a means to summon the Godhand, four evil demonic gods who offer their bearers the chance to become demonic Apostles (or in the case of those bearing a Crimson Behelit such as Griffith, [[spoiler:a new member of the Godhand]]) in exchange for the sacrifice of those closest to them, who are transported to hell along with the one presented with the deal and marked with the Godhand's Brand of Sacrifice if the bearer should accept, at which point the monsters come out of the woodwork to eat them alive. They're particularly insidious because they are activated by their bearer hitting the DespairEventHorizon, making the bearer particularly receptive to the Godhand's offer.

* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', demons such as the protagonists routinely form Contracts with humans to build their own influence and power. Contracts like [[LighterAndSofter modeling a cosplay outfit in exchange for some snacks]]. Demons are actively trying to get away from the your-soul-for-power negative PR after the GreatOffscreenWar hugely depopulated the race and left extinction as a very real threat. They can't afford to risk getting hunted down by Angels or church assassins just because bigger contracts are quicker.

** The soul is enslaved and unable to influence anything, and the form is actually irrelevant, although it seems to have an impact sometimes. Neither survives the first evolution.
** ''But'', in the pilot chapter, ''Allen'' was a rogue Akuma containing... I think the soul of his sister. Or was he physically a girl and run by the soul of her brother? Can't remember. But an akuma-killing akuma in sibling's skin that was still recognizably Allen Walker.
*** ...in the Naruto pilot Naruto was a fox, Kyuubi's son. Is there a pattern of some kind here?
*** Yeah. Humans are easier to sell.

* ''AkumaNaEros'' has Satan as a BastardBoyfriend who agrees to help a school girl named Miu Sakurai, who somehow managed to get her paws on a spellbook and invoked him, to snatch the attention of the resident highschool heart-throb, Amamiya. Yet he demands her virginity as a payment, and is bent on collecting... specially when he sees that Miu not only is very cute-looking, but somehow has a power that can potentially reject his own.
* In ''DragonBallZ'', during the Buu arc, Vegeta willingly allows Babidi to brainwash him for the power boost that comes with it so he can finally surpass Goku, and it's referred to as Vegeta "selling his soul". However Vegeta's desire to fight Goku allows him to completely ignore all of his new "master"'s orders, and Vegeta dies trying to destroy the monster Babidi unleashed, and it seems either his or Babidi's death released Vegeta from the mind control.

* Count D in ''PetShopOfHorrors'' pretty much is this trope. He will sell you "love, hope and dreams" provided that you keep to the contract. If not... things will go very badly for you. Since this is all a part of his [[GenocideBackfire revenge scheme against humanity]] for [[spoiler: eradicating [[LastOfHisKind almost his entire species]]]], often it seems as if the humans are set up to fail so they will learn their lesson and then die horribly - but there are also times when human nature surprises him.
