* ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'': Unlike in canon, Ryuk chooses to give Light the Death Note and effectively blackmails him into becoming Kira so he can find the Death Note Ryuk lost (which is now in L's possession), by threatening to kill Light should he refuse. As a result of that and reading the second half the story that came with the Death Note, Light is significantly more restrained than he was in canon, retaining his, reasoning, sanity, and overall morality rather than getting DrunkWithPower.

*''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has a few examples.
**Makoto initially approaches the Thieves with a recording of Ryuji and Ann mentioning their status as such, and asks them to prove they are just or else she will turn it over to the police. In this case, the threat is less malicious, and Makoto has the recording more as an insurance policy.
**The target Makoto wants the Theives to [[HeelFaceBrainwashing reform]] is a blackmailer himself. Junya Kaneshiro is a {{Yakuza}} boss who blackmails high school students, [[spoiler:including the party when they try to investigate them, which results in them having three weeks to clear his dungeon]], and represents {{Gluttony}} of the SevenDeadlySins.
**Goro Akechi, a teenage detective investigating the Phantom Thieves, approaches them with proof that he knows their identities, but, like Makoto, he uses this to make a deal. He claims that he knows that they aren't really responsible for [[spoiler:killing the principal and Kunikazu Okumura]], and says that if they [[spoiler:steal the heart of Sae Niijima, Makoto's older sister and the prosecutor investigating the Thieves]], he'll destroy the evidence. [[spoiler:In reality, Goro's working for the conspiracy and wants to use the job he has planned to lure the Thieves into a trap]].
