** They do this to Snake again in Film/EscapeFromLA. They inject him with a virus that will supposedly kill him in 12 hours unless he brings the President's RebelliousSpirit teenage daughter back. Ultimately subverted as [[spoiler: the virus is just a fast acting version of the common flu]].


Added DiffLines:

** The ending of VideoGame/MassEffect3 has the Catalyst make three such offers to Shepard. The choices are [[spoiler: wipe out all synthetic life including an entire species that might have become friendly to the player, become the new controlling intelligence that commands the Reapers, or forcibly cyborgify every life in the galaxy]]. You can refuse, but doing so means that all advanced life in the galaxy gets ground up into mulch.

* ''Anime/PsychoPass'': After Akane discovers that the Psycho-Pass System has puppeteers controlling the AI, they declare that if she assassinated them, the key members of the entire juridical (and effectively ruling) system in Japan, it would result in the total collapse of society. As an alternative, they offer her and her squad full pardons (for some, not all) if she'll just leave. [[spoiler:Knowing that she can't open fire without becoming a mass-murderer of citizens, she takes it]].

** In ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightJusticeForAll Justice for All]], [[spoiler:assassin Shelly de Killer does this to Phoenix himself: either get Matt Engarde acquitted of murder, or Phoenix's assistant and best friend Maya Fey dies. This seems like an easy choice considering that Phoenix has spent the entirety of two games helping his clients be acquitted, but it takes a nasty turn once it becomes obvious that Engarde is guilty as sin.]]

** 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.
