* In ''Literature/WorldWarZ'', one of the interviewed characters, Breckinridge Scott, struck it rich by buying rights to a prototype rabies vaccine and distributing it in response to early outbreaks of "African Rabies". Which he knew all along [[ZombieApocalypse wasn't actually rabies]], but if the ignorant masses were clamoring for a rabies vaccine, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive then he might as well sell them one while he could]].

*** A similar scenario plays out in [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII the Kingdom Hearts adaptation]] of the film. Will asks Barbossa to let Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Elizabeth go and to leave their ship. Barbossa ties the party up in the hold while a group of Heartless stays behind to detonate the ship with gunpowder barrels, because Will only demanded that the ''pirates'' leave.

** Even Davey Jones gets in on it in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest second film]], after Will wins a game of chance (or rather, someone else [[HeroicSacrifice intentionally loses]]) that gets him out of his debt. "Congratulations, Mister Turner, you're free to leave. The very next time we come in to port!" Cue group EvilLaugh - for Jones, and therefore the ''Flying Dutchman'', can only make port once every decade.

Then again, he promptly breaks his word, when Will tries to swim for it at night and is picked up by a passing ship. Sure, Will is free to leave... until the Kracken comes for him.
