** Before the Dimension of Pain became the Dimension of Pain, one of the original inhabitants made a pact with the invading LegionsOfHell. She gave them entrance to her city, thinking she could save her lover from dying in the war and flee with him. Naturally, he died anyway and she became cursed to be one of the demons.

** K'Z'K the Destroyer has a good record of getting mortals to summon him into the world, even though that basically means TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt -- which he has caused several times. He has offered things such as "the ability to kill a demigod who offended your gigantic ego" and "sparing you and your loved ones since the End is coming soon regardless."

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', [[spoiler:Vaarsuvius tries to get one of these deals to get enough power to save their family. This zigzags wildly -- the fiends claim that they don't ''really'' want V's soul for eternity, but just a proof of concept that the different fiend types can work together, so their deal is for X minutes of damnation each fiend for however long V holds onto that fiend's power. But as they point out, V committing Evil acts while DrunkWithPower is on their soul and is likely to lead to their eternal damnation anyway. But the worst snag is ''when'' the contracted damnation will take place; V assumes it will be immediately after their death and before whatever afterlife their alignment earns, but it's actually whenever the [[Pun hell]] the fiends say so, as V learns to their dismay when they try to stop Roy from destroying Girard's Gate.]]

** Comes up again with Larisa during the Divine Comedy arc. In order to save Sandra's life from one of the human god's pranks, she signed a contract with the devil that would condemn her soul to hell upon death (the contract would be rendered void if they failed to save her). Although, it was more like a job offering than an eternity of torment (the devil wanted to put her talents to use as a succubus).

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', [[spoiler:Vaarsuvius tries to get one of these deals to get enough power to save his/her family. Subverted in that the powerful beings that show up to discuss the deal don't actually want V's soul's eternal damnation and act in a shocked way when V suggests that. "Oh no no no no! How would THAT be fair?" Instead, they want control of V's soul for a sharply limited time at a later point - and, not stated outright but presumed, while V's still alive. Which is arguably even worse, given the potential ramifications of having a high-level wizard directly controlled by paragons of Evil in a crucial moment. And to them, V's just a bonus. The real payoff is proving that the factions of evil can cooperate, so that they may storm the upper planes and end the war of Good vs. Evil once and for all.]]
** [[spoiler:[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0634.html "I... I must succeed"]]. These fiends ARE trying to get V's soul; a few comics later they point out that all the evil acts that V is racking up are by V's own choice, and they are making V more "evil-aligned", away from the original true neutral.]]
