Added DiffLines:

** In ''Anime/GundamBuildDivers'', there are Mass-Divers, players of the Gunpla Battle Nexus Online game who willingly buy illegal modification parts known as Break Decals from a man named Tsukasa Shiba, not caring that doing so is damaging the game and only want the self-gratification of being stronger than everyone without the work to get there.

* Witsarnemitea in the anime/RPG''VideoGame/{{Utawarerumono}}'' ''loves'' to grant 'wishes', particularly in the mysterious backstory. For instance, DO YOU WANT A STRONGER BODY? [[ImmortalitySeeker DO YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?]] ENJOY [[spoiler:BEING TURNED INTO A RED JELLY]], ASSHOLE. DO YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME, PHILOSOPHER? HOW ABOUT I [[spoiler:TAKE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER YOUR BODY FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY]], LOL. Sometimes you have to swear your entire being away in a contract in order to get help, though.

* This is sometimes the way Yuuko does her work in ''Manga/XxxHOLiC''. She plays the Mephisto straight, where she grants people any wish they desire as long as they can pay something of ''equal'' value to the wish (She even refers to this price as a "soul" in one occasion, tough only to mess with Watanuki). For example, when a woman wanted to have a cursed picture that showed her murdering her friend locked away, Yuko's price was that the woman could ''never'' have her picture taken or recorded ''again'' - dooming her to a life of exile due to the abundance of security cameras around.

** That's the way Naraku came into being. He was once a bandit who fell in love with priestess Kikyo. He made a pact [[PuppeteerParasite with many "lower demons" and became]] the half-demon Naraku.
** Later, there is the Princess Sara Asano, who has a similar motivation, but she is in love with Sesshomaru.
** In another episode, you see the half-demon Gyu-oh, who is an [[InvoluntaryShapeshifter involuntary shapeshifter]]. He joins forces with a group of demons to obtain a pure jewel that will transform him into a pure human being, but to make the demons stronger.
** ''Anime/InuYashaTheMovieSwordsOfAnHonorableRuler'' has Takemaru, a samurai who is transformed from a vicious sword into an undead with magical powers to kill Inuyasha and Sesshomaru.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', during the "Universal Survival" arc, Majin Buu falls asleep shorting before the Tournament of Power and a replacement needs to be found for him quickly. With no other candidates available [[ButtMonkey (except for Yamcha, who everyone forgot)]], Goku gets the idea to recruit [[spoiler:Frieza, by having him resurrected for a day like he was. Frieza eventually agrees to join them, only under the condition that should they win he be resurrected. Goku tells him about the Super Dragon Balls, but says he can only use them if he gets to them before anyone else on the team, so Freiza, not thinking it is worth the trouble if his resurrection isn't guaranteed, says [[ExactWords "Earth's Dragon Balls will do fine"]]. However, Frieza still manipulates things behind the scenes, knowing he can manipulate the gods of destruction and have fun torturing the other fighters as long as he doesn't kill them. He plans that should he gain the Super Dragon Balls he will use them to have complete control over the gods of destruction, which could include both Zen'os.]]

Frieza actually turns out to be a vital member of the team though, and [[EnemyMine teams up with Goku]] to eliminate Jiren in the final fight of the tournament. Since Frieza failed to win the Super Dragon Balls himself, he expected the others to send him back to hell right away since [[YouHaveOutLivedYourUsefulness they don't need him anymore]], but to everyone's surprise, Whis revives Frieza himself, saying it is a gift from Beerus as thanks for Frieza's help. Frieza however states [[RedemptionRejection he has no plans to give up being evil]] and vows to get his revenge on Goku one day. TheStinger of the episode shows that he has already rebuilt his army and plans to rebuild his empire before challenging Goku again.]]

* The plot of the {{Hentai}} ''Bible Black'' is set in motion because of one these.

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' has several examples, though unusually for this trope it generally turns out well for the person making the deal:
** Youko's mother Touko made a deal with Akane to take care of her high school boyfriend (later her husband), but due to Akane's sweet tooth, the price is just an ice cream bar. In addition, Akane pulls an ExactWords [[spoiler: to actually tilt the deal ''further'' in Touko's favor: the deal was specifically to "protect Shiragami", and hey, their daughter is ''also'' a Shiragami, which means she's covered by the deal as well.]]
** Karen constantly offers these to people as part of "Demon" persona, but being that [[MinionWithAnFInEvil she's quite possibly the nicest individual in the cast]], her price usually ends up being [[spoiler: a sincere "thank you."]] Then again, it's implied that [[spoiler: Karen isn't actually a fallen angel; she's a regular angel who ''thinks'' she's fallen because she lost her halo (Akane stole it).]]
