* [[TheDragon Reala]] gives one to Helen in ''[[NightsIntoDreams Nights: Journey of Dreams]]'' while revealing to her that [=NiGHTS=] is also a Nightmaren to break their trust. It's also pragmatic because [[spoiler:Reala creates and opens a portal to send Helen away while he's circling her]].

* ''WesternAnimation/NeoYokio'': Invoked when the [[spoiler:Helenists have Kaz captured and prepped for a demonic sacrifice - Helena arrives on the scene and begins to monologue about how Kaz represents everything that's wrong with Neo Yokio, circling him as he's tied to a crude wooden altar.]] Subverted immediately afterward when [[spoiler:she knocks down one of the Helenists with a giant candy bar, revealing that she was only using the monologue as a distraction to get in position to attack.]]

* This happens at least twice in Creator/MadeleineLEngle's books -- ''Literature/AWindInTheDoor'' and ''Literature/ManyWaters'', to be precise (although this is more of forcible-possession than monologuing, in both cases). In the latter, it's called the CircleOfExtinction, giving this trope its [[Administrivia/RenamedTropes former name]].

It's rare, but sometimes the hero will do this. In this case, the hero usually isn't the [[NietzscheWannabe ideological predator]], but a flexible thinker, offering a LastSecondChance while the villain remains dead set in their ways, immovable and proud before their [[KarmicDeath impending fall]]. Some examples are both of these at once, where the hero and villain circle ''each other'' while trying to convert each other.
