* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', during the "Universal Survival" arc, Majin But 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 Ymancha, 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.]]

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'', this may or may not be an important part of the plot. In the beginning of the series, Yuma makes a deal with a demonic entity called simply "the Door". It says "Whoever opens this door will obtain a new power, but in exchange will lose what they appreciate the most." Yuma accepts this offer, and later meets Astral, gaining the ability to fight and control the Numbers. The Door appears later, giving Yuma the Zexal Power and this time saying that it will cost Yuma his most precious belonging. Still later, the Door tests Yuma, forcing him to battle a demon called the Shadow Giant; after Yuma is victorious, Astral gains another useful ability. It is not yet known what this being will eventually demand from Yuma, but clearly, this will remain a constant part of his career for at least the time being.

During the last episode during his duel with Astral, Yuma destroys the door when Astral plays it as a trap card, thus ending the deal and regaining his love for at least the time being.dueling.]]

** Happened before this in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', between DesperatelySeekingAPurposeInLife Meer Campbell and {{Narcissist}} ControlFreak Gilbert Durandal, and has a major factor on the plot. Also arguably, ''anyone'' who decides to work with Durandal. Subverted as [[spoiler:[[MagnificentBastard Rau Le Creuset]] may have struck an old deal with Gilbert -- they are shown shaking hands -- and been setting up his downfall and aiming to KickTheSonOfABitch ever since.]]

* The plot of the {{Hentai}} ''Bible Black'' is set in motion because of one these. [[WholeEpisodeFlashback Years before the first series takes place,]] the [[BigBad antagonist]] reveals that she was offered as a human sacrifice to summon the devil. Since she was not a virgin, the devil refused her and [[TheDogBitesBack she managed to kill the leader of the "coven" that tried to sacrifice her]] and was allowed to stay alive for a certain amount of time by the Devil. In order to avoid going to hell, she has chosen the soul of the hero's LoveInterest payment to the Devil.

* In ''Manga/BlueExorcist'', many exorcists make deals with demons in order to be able to use their power or to summon them when they want. In return, the demon asks a set of rules to follow or something in exchange. This varies depending on the aspiration of the tastes of the demon. For instance Garuda [[spoiler: has made a deal with the Myoda sect that guarantees he will serve the leader of each generation under the condition they keep secret the deal and the presence of an asleep eldritch abomination under the temple. This is because Uschuma feeds of the lies and the doubts it creates]]. Then we have Mephisto Pheles himself (ironically surnamed Johann Faust) who has passed Morinas contracts with some humans that is enforced by a demon . Should the signer of the contract defy the conditions contained within, the demon will hunt them down and kill them.

* Illegal Contractors in ''PandoraHearts'' make deals with "chains" from The Abyss to change their pasts or give them powers in the present. Oz is Alice's Illegal Contractor, although their whole situation is unique. [[spoiler:Break]] made a deal with the Will of the Abyss herself but the exact details have not yet been revealed.

* In the 3rd OVA to ''Manga/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.

* 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/DissolvingClassroom'', it's never clear exactly how Yuuma got the power to kill people through his apologies, but as he made sacrifices to the devil as a child and later apparently did the same with his parents, the devil seems to have granted him the ability.

* Witsarnemitea in the anime/VisualNovel ''{{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.
