* 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]].

* You'd never expect to see this in a RealRobot show, but it happened in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', if metaphorically. [[spoiler: By the end of the first season, Mika asked Barbatos for extra power to take on the [[EvilIsBigger Graze Ein]], and he got it, at the cost of losing the ability to use his right eye and right arm while not connected to the machine. Considering the name is taken from ''Literature/ArsGoetia'', you can easily draw the parallel of Mika summoning a demon to defeat his enemy, who then took his arm and eye as payment. The fact he can only use his arm and leg while connected to Barbatos further reinforce the image 'The arm and eye are still there, they just don't ''belong'' to you any more.' Even more disturbingly, his right eye activated WHEN NOT CONNECTED TO BARBATOS upon the reactivation of the buried autonomous Mobile Armor that Tekkadan found. In this setting, the Gundams were created specifically to destroy the Mobile Armors, making it look as if the Barbatos was looking through Mika's eye upon sensing an old enemy reawakening.]]

* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', a little demon in Soul's head (who [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic resembles the Devil]], actually) offers him power in exchange for his sanity.

* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', a little demon in Soul's head (who [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic resembles the Devil]], actually) offers him power in exchange for his sanity. The demon is actually a manifestion of the Black Blood that Soul got in his system early on. In essence, drawing on the power of Madness.

* You have any interactions with [[DevilInPlainSight Hiruma]] [[TheTrickster Youichi]] from ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' (actually, even if you don't), you're automatically his slave for life. God help you if you actually make a deal with him.

* 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.]]

* 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.
