* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', James Potter saved Snape's life and it's implied that Snape protects Harry because he regrets not being able to save James' life in return. Or at least that's the story in the first few books, until it's revealed that he also loved Lily.

* In "TheGoblinWood" by Creator/HilariBell, that's how Makenna allies with the goblins. Their entire culture is based around paying back debts, and when she frees a goblin she finds she is stuck with a helper. It works out well for them, in the end.

* ''ElfQuest'': This is ostensibly Rayek's reason for helping Leetah to save Cutter's life after the disastrous battle with the snow trolls. In reality he probably did it out of compassion, though he'd never admit it.

* A dark variant in videogame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII: The BountyHunter Mira had spared the life of Hanharr, a Wookie bounty hunter who had been trying to kill her, but got caught in his own trap instead. Wookie culture demands that if someone saves your life, [[IOweYouMyLife you are obliged to pledge your life to them]]. Hanharr ''hates'' Mira and despises the Life Debt, meaning he would like to find a way to get her ''killed'' just to be free of the obligation.
