* Website/ChuckNorrisFacts: Chuck Norris agreed to trade his soul to the Devil in exchange for his [[{{Badass}} incredible martial arts abilities]] and [[MrFanservice rugged good looks]]. As soon as the exchange was completed, Norris used his newfound powers to kick the Devil's ass and retake his soul. The Devil, appreciating the {{irony}}, became friends with Norris.

In just about every superheroic version of a DealWithTheDevil, [[JustForFun/HowToGiveACharacterSuperpowers the hero is granted superhuman powers]] and/or brought BackFromTheDead in exchange for a price; usually [[NobleTopEnforcer servitude]], his [[OurSoulsAreDifferent soul]], or being [[MagicallyBindingContract bound to complete a certain task.]] Trouble is, the hero has no intention of being a pawn in the Devil's game, and after a short stint of doing Old Scratch's dirty work, breaks free and declares that he'll use the BigBad-given power against him and combat evil as a {{Badass}} DarkerAndEdgier AntiHero. The villain doesn't specifically have to be {{Satan}}; this trope applies to any story in which the hero is given powers by the bad guy and then rebels and uses them to combat evil.[[note]]Even the TropeNamer, {{Faust}}, doesn't actually make his deal with the capital 'D' Devil, but rather the archdemon Mephistopheles.[[/note]] This trope is often used as a way to give a hero [[EvilIsCool awesome Hell-themed powers]] without having to actually [[BadPowersGoodPeople make him evil]]. It even comes with a ready-made antagonist and his [[TheLegionsOfHell Legions Of Hell]] to boot, who will already be gunning for the blood of the renegade agent of Hell!

A common justification for why the BigBad [[BadassFingersnap apparently never has the ability to take his gifts back with the same snap of his fingers with which they were given]], is that breaking free from Old Scratch's control is the very thing that ''stops'' the Devil from taking the power back. (See [[Analysis/FaustianRebellion analysis page]]) Another possibility is that the transfer is one way--the villain never could take back the powers, but only claimed to be able to, or the powers were derived from [[ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow knowledge which cannot be unlearned]].

Just because you create something doesn't mean it's easy to put it back in the box, regardless of what you may be, and sometimes FinaglesLaw works in the hero's favor.

This [[FridgeLogic makes you wonder why]] the villain would be [[VillainBall stupid enough]] to give this guy enough power to beat him--sometimes more power than the villain himself has, or unusual powers that he doesn't have, which are effective against their own creator, and why they do all this with no contingency plan should the hero choose to rebel. [[FridgeLogic If you think about it]], though, it's actually not as crazy as it might seem. There are any number of reasons that the hero might be able to successfully rebel:
* It could be that the evil patron...
** is StupidEvil--your typical demon is traditionally depicted as a being incapable of even EvilVirtues. Things like self-restraint, good judgement, and attention to nuance are simply beyond them- they're doing it ForTheEvulz, and [[DidntThinkThisThrough don't really think too far ahead]]. In older folktales the Devil was often a very gullible character, falling for various minor forms (often involving wealth) of Faustian Rebellion again and again, and this is one of the central tenets of any story involving outwitting a JerkassGenie.
** is just [[CosmicPlaything toying with the hero]]--In some modern works, even the Devil himself may be portrayed as FauxAffablyEvil, or even AffablyEvil. Like a parent with a three year old who decides to run away across the street, they're just letting the little tyke tucker himself out before reining him in. Should the hero win some major victory that actually damages one of the {{Big Bad}}'s ''important'' plans, expect VillainousBreakdown, usually to the hero's detriment.
** is a ChallengeSeeker or a NobleDemon--It's only fair to give the hero a sporting chance to "win". If they find a way to break free, they keep the goods. Sometimes overlaps with the next one.
** is [[WhoWantsToLiveForever Bored]]--the whole thing is a game to pass the time for a SentientCosmicForce. Usually you get the simple pleasure of simultaneously breaking a former hero and gaining a new superminion, but sometimes you get the really fun ones who unleash a DestructiveSavior on the world and you get to spend decades or centuries playing TheChessmaster and finally getting to try out all those [[MonsterOfTheWeek cool monsters you've been building in the garage]].
** ''wants'' them to rebel--rarely, the hero makes their deal with a {{Starscream}}, GoodAllAlong minion, or DefectorFromDecadence who cannot rebel themselves, but use the hero to oppose their boss without breaking their own contract, possibly in an open ConspiracyRedemption. Rarely this one can overlap with the previous one in a convoluted XanatosGambit.
* Other possibilities are if the hero...
** is a GuileHero -- Most evil benefactors are typically portrayed as LawfulEvil- hence the common theme of a DealWithTheDevil requiring a literal contract. If EvilCannotComprehendGood, LawfulEvil cannot even remotely conceive of ChaoticGood. They can understand ''that'' a LawfulGood paladin will turn down the offer of a cushy gig as TheDragon, if not necessarily ''why''. They may anticipate or even expect their new toy to be a {{Starscream}} or ChaoticNeutral- the contingency plan for rebellion is to [[SignedUpForTheDental offer more perks and a better parking space]].
** is a master of LoopholeAbuse--they manage to find a way to weasel their way out of the deal without [[ExactWords actually breaking the contract]]
** has HeroicWillpower--they were being mind controlled. Emphasis on the ''were''.
** didn't get out of the contract without a price--Rarely, a villain will actually think to build in some sort of failsafe, such as some form of upkeep to retain RequiredSecondaryPowers preventing PowerIncontinence, PowerDegeneration, or the less pleasant aspects of having a LovecraftianSuperpower. This can be one of the more interesting forms of the trope, as the character will either have to live as a ReluctantMonster, or find some way of performing this upkeep on their own in a way they can live with. This can be difficult for a heroic character if this requires, for example, the [[PoweredByAForsakenChild sacrifice of a human soul]] or [[HorrorHunger drinking blood]] from time to time.

Sooner or later, may involve the Hero going ToHellAndBack and most likely fighting his way to stick it to Mephistopheles.

* ''ComicBook/{{Spawn}}'' is one of the best known examples of this trope. Which is really too bad, because [[LostInImitation in its original form]] it was an ''inversion''. Spawn was sent back to Earth with a finite amount of power. In a [[BreakingLecture demoralizing lecture]], the devil explains quite coldly how he ''does not care'' [[XanatosGambit what Spawn does with his powers]] -- if he uses them to do evil, great, Hell's cause is advanced on Earth. If he uses them to do good, great, he's sending evil souls down to Hell to swell the devil's army and thus hastening the final war against Heaven. If he refuses to do anything with them, great, he'll eventually turn cold and emotionless if not outright insane from the emotional stress of never getting involved with anything, the powers will drain away anyway (although much more slowly), and he'll return to Hell with a mindset much more befitting the general the devil wants him to be. Now ''that's'' a devil [[MagnificentBastard who knows how to bargain]]. Even the loophole of not killing while doing good seems thought-of, as that way, Spawn is setting a positive example of Faustian bargains.
