** In a villain example, before Frieza unleashed half of his power, he offers Goku the chance to come work for him, [[SparingTheAces saying it would be ashamed to destroy such talent]]. When Goku says no, Frieza is quite upset about it, saying what a complete waste it is, along with how stupid the Saiyans were for not remaining his faithful servants.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', when Al makes Ed stop trying to beat Tucker to death, and Tucker continues to goad him on. Al tells him that if he doesn't shut up, HE'LL be the one beating Tucker. Al is made of nothing but steel like armor at this point, so if he starts beating you, it will hurt a lot more than if Ed gets a shot at you.

* Sun Tzu advised this in ''Literature/TheArtOfWar'', saying that "supreme excellence" in wartime isn't winning every battle, but making the enemy back down without fighting. He thus advised a general to make it known to the enemy that, should they escalate a conflict, they would be swiftly and mercilessly destroyed.[[note]]Though a lot of what Sun Tzu advised would now be considered war cimes, the sentiment was to express the idea of "I don't want to fight you, because if I do, I will show you no mercy."[[/note]]



* Heroic examples occur several times during the Literature/XWingSeries, when before or during a fight someone - usually [[AcePilot Wedge Antilles]] - will announce his rank, his name, and his affiliation, and then offer the enemy the chance to either surrender or, sometimes, cease fighting and escape. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't he and his forces invariably annihilate the enemy forces, though not always without [[MauveShirt casualties]].

* ''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.

* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', while [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Clark]] has previously warned [[Franchise/{{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]].

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell does everything he can think of to get Thomas More to sign the Oath of Supremecy recognizing Henry VIII as head of the Church in England rather than the Pope. He stalls, sends in More's family, tells him basically to cross his fingers and sign, and asks if he's really unafraid of death as he drags out the matter until Henry's patience is at its limit. Though he admits he ''is'' afraid of the axe, More refuses to betray his principles, so Cromwell shrugs his shoulders and gets on with the KangarooCourt.

** Twelve in "Face the Raven" almost goes a bit War Doctor when he threatens Ashildr. [[spoiler: When Clara is about to be killed by the Quantum Shade, he basically turns into the Master, "I'll bring UNIT, I'll bring the Zygons, give me a minute, I'll bring the Daleks, and the Cybermen-- You will save Clara. And you will do it NOW. Or I will rain hell on you for the rest of time." "I can do whatever the hell I like. You've read the stories, you know who I am. And in all of that time, did you ever hear about anyone who stopped me?" He even brazenly admits to not acting in the name of the Doctor any more, which is very very scary.]] He only seems to back off when [[spoiler: Clara orders him not to insult her memory with revenge; even then, his last words to Ashildr are "I was lost a long time ago, she was saving you, I'll do my best, but I strongly advise you to keep out of my way", punctuated with an exhalation that seethes with blood curdling rage: "you'll find it's a very small universe when I'm angry with you."]]

* 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)
