* ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'': an interesting twist version of the Ordeal, where the Mephistopheles's offer to the Faustus is, effectively, to ''help rule "Hell"'' if he'll just kill one person... the Faustus accepts, believing he will be able to use this authority to reconstruct a better world, but by carrying out his assignment ends up abandoning his original motivations, ethics, and, indeed, [[TitleDrop everything he ever]] made the deal for in the first place... which was, presumably, the point of the ordeal to begin with. Ladies and gentlemen, Dr. Faustus: The Musical!

** A group of aliens, eventually classified as [[http://lafundacionscp.wikidot.com/scp-es-007 SCP-ES-007]], from the Spanish section of the site, came to Earth from Europa seeking the entity's help, calling it "the trickster, the dragon charmer, the inconceivable, the ineffable, the rite", which trades anything for some thing he finds attractive. He also mentions it's not the only one, that one knows why it does whatever it is that it does, and that it has altered its shape many times from whatever TimeAbyss spawned it. While the observers were not privy to the details of the discussion, the poor guy collapsed in despair after finally talking with the entity.

* [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-738 SCP-738]] of the Wiki/SCPFoundation. The price paid for a deal is something intended to cause emotional pain to the person making the deal, like the death of a best friend or losing all memories of one's mother. Interestingly, when a test subject who is severely mentally handicapped is sent in to make a deal, the entity accepts it... but then sighs in regret once it's complete.
** And when they sent one of their [[EvilLawyerJoke lawyers]] in, the result was a 900+ page document detailing the terms of the deal, which didn't even get finished because the lawyer collapsed from exhaustion after spending 41 hours negotiating with the entity. When the lawyer woke up, he found a note in his pocket: "Please come back any time. I haven't had so much fun in years."

** In the DVD review of "The Review Must Go On", he mocks and acknowledges that it's played more like Doug selling his soul to the Critic-devil rather than just bringing a show back.

* Averted in ''Literature/VoidDomain''. Demons tend to be more mercenary than wish granters. Fae fulfill the deal with the devil role in their place.
