* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'': In the episode "The Tale of Tiger Claw," Alopex, Tiger Claw's sister, comes to town and manages to defeat him, but ultimately refrains from killing him because he's the only family she has left. Immediately afterwards, Tiger Claw tries to shoot Alopex InTheBack... only for her to {{Flash Step}} out of the way and [[BackstabBackfire chop his]] [[AnArmAndALeg arm off]] as a warning.
-->'''Alopex''': Never forget. I could have taken your life.

* Averted in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'': GenreSavvy Captain Tern knows that, if she tries to force entry to the Whistler household, the Whistler girls (the oldest one who is at home at the time is about sixteen) will fight to death, regardless of what she says, as they have brothers to protect. She's not keen on killing little girls, so she decides to wait until the Queen's Justice arrives and sorts it out. She explains this thought process to Princess Rensellaer when asked why she's willing to wait for what could be hours. (Captain Tern would have to kill the girls, as it is her duty to protect the royal family, regardless of how stupid the princesses act. Fortunately, Rensellaer agrees that they should avoid a confrontation)

* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', while [[Comicbook/{{Superman}} Clark]] has previously warned [[Comicbook/{{Batman}} Bruce]] that he'll take him down if Bruce doesn't stop being the Batman, by the time of their actual fight, he's realised that Comicbook/LexLuthor is the real threat, and wants Bruce's help to [[spoiler: rescue his mother, who Lex is holding hostage]]. When his initial attempts to talk to Bruce fail as Bruce just attacks him before he can finish his sentence, Clark shows how powerful he is in an attempt to convince Bruce that if he was here to fight, Bruce wouldn't stand a chance. Unfortunatly, this fails to convince Bruce, who just breaks out the [[KryptoniteFactor Kryptonite]].

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/{{Exosquad}}'', when Kaz finally catches up with his long-time [[TheRival rival]] Thrax and has him at gunpoint. Thrax rather calmly reminds Kaz that no one actually makes him do anything, so whether he does or does not pull that trigger is his decision alone. Kaz is so bewildered by this reply that he lets him simply walk away. This scene is particularly poignant because unbeknownst to Kaz, [[spoiler:Thrax has just willingly disobeyed a direct order from the planet's supreme commander to nuke a city so it wouldn't fall to the Terrans, putting him on a short track to a court-marshal]]

** The TropeNamer is in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''. Darth Vader has Luke trapped and defenseless, but he also knows Luke is the best bet for ending the Galactic Civil War and possibly destroying the Emperor as well. There's also their familial relationship; Vader has found out rather recently that Luke is his son and as such would rather not kill him.
