** In one of the El-ahrairah stories (The Story of King Fur-Rocious) in ''Tales of WatershipDown'', on his quest to win a nearly hopeless war against the titular King, El-ahrairah befriends a cat (who jumps into his ear), saves a flock of crows (who also jump into his ear), helps out a nest of ants (into the ear again), and even enlists the help of a river (the other ear, this time). This pays off when, on three consecutive nights, El-ahrairah challenges the King and is shut up with the Rabid Rats (taken care of by the cat), the Wildcat Weasels (killed by the crows), and the Savage Stoats (chased off by the ant nest). The ''fourth'' night, King Fur-Rocious decides to have El-ahrairah tied up next to his sleeping place so he can figure out what's going on. For his pains, he eats the full might of the river, and promptly leaves thereafter. That was the only war El-ahrairah ever fought, and that was how he won it. Question: [[{{Hammerspace}} How big]] are his ears, anyway?! They ''are'' woven from starlight.

* ''The Book of Three'' (1964), the first of Creator/LloydAlexander's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' novels. Taran helps a wounded baby gwythaint (a species of gigantic dangerous bird creatures forced to serve the BigBad Arawn). The favor is repaid twice; once in the first book when the gwythaint tells Gwydion where to find Taran and the Horned King, and [[HeroicSacrifice more significantly]] at the end of the fifth and final book.

* Doubling as a BrickJoke, an episode of ''Series/CornerGas'' has Oscar buying mousetraps to kill a mouse that had been seen at the gas station. Davis is against this, admitting to being somewhat of an animal lover and fondly recalling a time that he took care of an injured owl until it was healthy enough to fly again. At the end of the episode, Davis has finally wore Oscar down and convinced him to capture the mouse alive and release it into the wild. They let it go in a field... [[SubvertedTrope and what is implied to be the same owl immediately swoops down to snatch it up for food]].
-->'''Davis:''' ''[devastated]'' Hootie, ''NO''!



* Dane Cook once did a comedy bit about this, noting how if there's someone at work with a creepy, outsider-vibe to them, it's best to be nice to them so they'll spare you when they finally show up at the office with a shotgun.

* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' parodies it in "Quo Doofus". Johnny is sentenced to be eaten by a lion in Ancient Rome. Luckily, the lion gets a splinter stuck in his paw which Johnny kindly removes, pleasing the audience but not the bloodthirsty emperor. Johnny gives a moving speech and shakes the lion's paw, [[TooDumbToLive only to lodge the splinter back in and earn its contempt]].

* The Bandersnatch in Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' helps Alice after she gives it back its disembodied eye, [[spoiler: by licking the scratch wounds it inflicted on Alice's arm earlier and healing it, lest it (quoeth Cheshire Cat) "festers and putrefies". It later serves as her mount in the FinalBattle against the Jabberwock.]]
