* ''ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'': a time-travelling Loki approaches Andavi, hoping to take his hoard for their own reasons, but Andavi will not give it up, and Andavi cannot be caught by hook or net, and no spell can hold him. So what does the trickster god do?
-->'''Narration:''' "And Loki reached into his carrying bag... [[spoiler: and brought forth an '''M20 recoilless rocket launcher'''.]] For Andavi could only guard against what he could think of. And while wily he was in the ways of magic... he was somewhat ''unimaginative''."

* In one ''ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}'' issue set during the time of the legendary ''ComicBook/IronMan'' storyline "Demon In A Bottle", Deadpool makes a DealWithTheDevil to get Iron Man vastly inebriated. However, Deadpool has a change of heart when he attempts to do so and Tony ends up getting sobered up when a nuclear plant is starting to go critical. Deadpool, not wanting Tony to get killed, knocks him out, steals his armor, paints it with the black markings to make it look like himself, gets ''himself'' plastered, and goes off to save the day. When the demon comes to rant at Deadpool for failing, Deadpool points out in the fine print of the contract that it specifically stated ''Iron Man'', not ''Tony Stark''.

* This is subverted in a ''WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls'' comic. When Mojo Jojo tells Fuzzy Lumpkins that a high-tech weapon that landed on Fuzzy's yard is his, Fuzzy says, "I don't see your name on it!" (The same thing he said to the Girls when ''they'' tried to get it.) Mojo responds by turning it around; his name ''is'' on it. (Fuzzy decides to stop using loopholes and just threaten him at that point.)

* Contrary to his usual portrayal, the Devil in ''CastleWaiting'' is explicitly stated to ''hate'' this trope, and the evil witch from the comic's version of ''Literature/SleepingBeauty'' making use of this (by technically cursing the princess as a young woman rather than as the baby she is at the time the curse is made) is one of several reasons she ends up on the wrong side of EvenEvilHasStandards.

* LexLuthor once made a deal with Mxyzptlk where Mxy would provide Luthor with the means to render Superman powerless. Part of the deal was that Luthor must never tell Superman about Mxy's role in this. Not enjoying the idea of being unable to let {{Superman}} know how he defeated him, Luthor tried to circumvent that part of the deal by telling someone who would tell Superman about the deal. Luthor then told ''Clark Kent''.

** Later Loki's confronted with the fact that they'll always be the ''God of Lies'' and so (according to the one telling) destined to be evil. What do they do? They decide Lies are just [[spoiler:Stories]] and rebrand accordingly. It ''works''.
