* On ''Series/{{The 100}}'', Clarke and Anya meet to discuss the possibility of peace between the 100 and the Grounders. They agree to not bring any weapons or soldiers to the meeting ... an agreement both of them ignore, instead having people with guns or bows hiding in the woods nearby. Clarke's backup was only supposed to get involved if Anya betrayed them first; it's unclear if Anya's backup was under the same orders, or if they were meant to assassinate Clarke mid-negotiation, because Clarke's backup spotted them first and opened fire.

* In ''Mission of Honor'', Literature/HonorHarrington [[spoiler:goes to Haven to negotiate a peace settlement, backed up by Eighth Fleet, with the explicit threat that the Havenites can either negotiate, or get their navy blown out of space.]] Although that's really GunboatDiplomacy rather than AggressiveNegotiations.

** Played with in "The Miracle of Palaven" in the third game. One of the Reapers' strategies to make conquest easier is to pretend to open peace negotiations (on-board the Reaper) with whatever leaders the enemy has left. The goal in this case is not to kill those leaders, but to [[MindControl indoctrinate them]], allowing the Reapers to easily destroy resistances from the inside-out. The turians were too savvy to fall for this, but played along for a bit... then the "leaders" they sent in for negotiations detonated the bombs they'd brought with them, leading to the destruction of several Reaper capital ships.

* When ''Series/{{Angel}}'' and the gang are working for Wolfram & Hart, Angels flips out on seeing a Groxlar Beast (a type of demon that kills babies and eats their heads) inside the offices and immediately kills it. When he angrily demands how it got past security, [[GirlFriday Harmony]] informs him that the beast was actually his three 'o' clock appointment, here to start negotiations to get the demons to stop eating baby heads.
--> Angel: Oh, so that's good. (Beat, realization) Oh, so this - this is bad.
--> Gunn: No, actually the Grox'lar clan respects someone who takes a strong opening position.
