* In ''RunFatBoyRun'', Dennis' motivation to run the marathon starts out as "prove to the woman I love that I have the willpower to see something through to the end". However, following her GuessWhoImMarrying scene he gives up on winning her back. By now there are other people involved, though; his {{Cranky Land|lord}}lady threatens to call off his back rent if he finishes the race or kick him into the street if he doesn't, and his best friend has bet a lot of money on him (with [[LondonGangster dodgy people]]) and falls out with him when he quits.

* A villainous version in ''Film/TheAvengers''; Loki wants to get revenge against [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor his brother]] and TakeOverTheWorld into the bargain, and enlists the help of prospective GalacticConqueror Thanos and the Chitauri to do so (he gets to rule Earth; they get the Tesseract to aid them in conquering everything else). Early on in the movie, it's made painfully clear to him that should the conquest of Earth ''fail'', he will be held entirely responsible and punished in ways he could not begin to imagine. In the FinalBattle, he's almost [[ThickerThanWater talked out of his vendetta]], but he's clearly terrified of what Thanos would do to him, and claims that it's "too late for that."

* In ''NinjaScroll'', Jubei initially doesn't want to fight against the Seven Devils of Kimon, having nearly died fighting Tessei and barely escaping from Benisato. Dakuan offers him a generous sum of gold but Jubei still refuses. Then Dakuan reveals the throwing star he used to break Benisato's hypnosis was poisoned. If Jubei agrees to work for Dakuan, he gets the gold and the antidote. Otherwise, he'll die.

** Then, he largely intentionally brought in all of the avengers and pointed them in the right direction to foil the plot with increasingly unsubtle hints, and in his next film appearance he [[spoiler: faked his death]] well enough to fool a pack of PhysicalGods, so he may have been taking [[TakeAThirdOption an escape hatch]] out instead of actually accepting the call.

TheHero has received the CallToAdventure, but has [[RefusedTheCall refused it]]. He is then told he will receive a reward for accepting it. If he doesn't do it, something suitably horrible will happen to him. Simply, this is a way that [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive the hero is forced to answer the call.]]

* Gene from ''VideoGame/GodHand'' is put into this position when he loses a limb in a fight and has the God Hand grafted in its place. If he goes out and confronts the forces of evil, there's the potential of money, a lot of really good fights, and maybe a little extra attention from Olivia. If he doesn't, Olivia has [[AnAxeToGrind an axe]] and [[AxCrazy no qualms about using it to get the God Hand back]].
