** Another benevolent example again courtesy of Einhart. [[spoiler: Upon learning that Rinne intends to quit being a martial artist, Einhart offers her a shot at her U-15 championship title, on the condition that she win against Fuka. This is so that not only would she uphold the promise of fighting Fuka, but to make a talented fighter such as her continue, and possibly find joy, in practicing martial arts.]]

* ''Anime/VividStrike'': Einhart and Nove offer Fuka a job at the Nakajima gym and perks as free food and lodging as part of their recruitment after her initial refusal to join. They use the fact that Fuka needs the money to help support the orphanage and Fuka's recent loss of job as leverage in order for her to accept.

This is a non-malicious example as Einhart sees potential in Fuka and genuinely wants to take her in as an apprentice.

* ''Film/TheGodfather'' is the trope namer. When Woltz fails to accept such an offer, his prize horse's head is severed and is placed in bed with him. Don Vito's preferred approach had three stages: First, make a fair or even generous offer. Second, if the first offer is refused, ''lower'' your initial offer, or even offer nothing. Third, if the person still doesn't take the hint, threaten the person with violence, possibly harming something that matters to him to make the point. (It's implied in the novel that he has a different approach for someone with "real balls", someone who would be willing to lose everything over a matter of honor.)

** The novel implies that Vito uses a different approach for someone with "real balls", someone who would be willing to lose everything over a matter of honor. Judging from the way Vito and Michael interact with other important mafiosi, the approach seems to be to simply make an offer; if the offer is refused, decide whether to accept the refusal, or go to war. But don't bargain (which would be seen as weakness) or threaten (which would be an intolerable insult).
** The trope is subverted in this film when Michael assures Fredo that he'll make Moe Greene "an offer he can't refuse". In fact, Michael makes the offer in a confrontational and condescending way, almost ''forcing'' Greene to refuse it--which he does. Apparently, Michael wanted Greene to turn him down, giving him an excuse to arrange a MoeGreeneSpecial for the movie's climax.

* Midway through the first ''BaldursGate'', you're given the option of joining the titular city's thieves guild. If you decide not to (whether because you're a good guy or just not interested), the guildmaster makes it perfectly clear that he runs on a "join or die" policy. Cue boss fight.
