* Backstory to ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' given in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' has Sauron as something of this after the defeat of [[GodOfEvil Morgoth]]; he begs clemency from the emissary of the Valar and offers his services in fixing the damage done by his master. The narration states that he was not entirely insincere in such offers (even if only driven by fear), and certain other writings imply that Sauron ultimately contrived his decision to remain in Middle-Earth against the instructions to return to Valinor for judgement as an opportunity to do good works (even if jealousy of the Elves and Númenórëans helped his true nature reassert itself).

* Also done in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''. The fine for murder is a fixed 1000 gold (plus the paltry 400 to 600 gold for assault). This is a game where it's common to have 10 to 20 ''times'' that amount by the late game, allowing you to murder someone in plain daylight, yield to the guards, pay off the fine and be on your merry way without spending more than a minute in jail.

* One of the funnier scenes in ''FanFic/AScotsmanInEgypt'' is watching Scotland's best diplomat enter the Vatican (having accidentally caused the death of the previous two a few days apart, with the Pope savoring the groveling he's about to see) and plonk down a huge-ass sack of florins on the Pope's desk, and declare "Your Holiness. You have no problem with the Scottish Empire."

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' lowers the assault fine to 40 gold. Nords... fight a lot. Especially against the Thalmor: You will NEVER get a murder fine from the cities if you murder a Thalmor in public. Everyone hates those fascists that much. In fact, the holds that are aligned with the Stormcloak faction will help you murder them, and then try to buy YOU off by bribing you with a "Let's sweep this assault fine under the rug, and you keep butchering Thalmor" deal.

deal. If you're in good standing with the Thieves' Guild, you can bribe away murder for a tenth of the cost, though subsequent bribes cost more.
