* Viconia tries this in ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate II]]'' several times, at least once citing her enemies as an excuse. The other times it seems to just be her {{Tsundere}} tendencies.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Tyrion does this with his mistress Shae, to drive her off before his [[ThePatriarch father Lord Tywin]] has her hanged. It backfires when a bitter Shae turns up as the SurpriseWitness at Tyrion's trial, perjuring herself to get Tyrion convicted. To cap off this HumiliationConga, Tryion later finds Shae in his father's bed and is forced to kill her when she attacks him.

* In ''VisualNovel/War13thDay'', Ambrosia does a variation of this. Night blackmails her into giving herself to him everyday in exchange for keeping Arsenik out of jail. While Ambrosia doesn't have to split up with Arsenik, she feels like it's a form of cheating and tells him that they shouldn't see each other anymore.

** The Eleventh Doctor does this to Clara Oswald in "The Time of the Doctor", repeating the same gambit the Ninth Doctor did with Rose - tricking her into entering the TARDIS and sending her home and out of harm's way. She is heartbroken as a result, but fortunately an ally of the Doctor's is able to reunite them.
** The Twelfth Doctor's plan to [[spoiler: erase Clara's memory of himself]] in "Hell Bent" is a misguided example. He knows it'll break her heart but he plans to do it whether she wants it or not. Fortunately, she is able to talk sense into him. Sadly, [[spoiler: her heart still ends up breaking when the Doctor loses his memories of her instead]].

-->'''Baloo''': Well, I did it. And that's about the hardest thing I ever had to do.
-->'''Bagheera''': ''[solemnly]'' I know.
