** In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'',[[TheEmperor Emperor Palpatine]] gives Luke the same instruction as he stands over the defeated Darth Vader. This time, however, it doesn't work, and Luke's refusal to kill his own father is a major factor in the latter's HeelFaceTurn.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in one ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' strip: the bored young emperor casually wonders what happens if he, instead of giving a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, makes an obscene gesture. "Does that mean they have to fuck?" . . . And they do.
-->'''Emperor:''' . . . I can't beleive we've been making them fight this whole time.

The title for this trope may be a ''MortalKombat'' [[MemeticMutation meme]], but it's ''not'' about that, or the [[{{Music/HIM}} Finnish band HIM.]]

** Does come up in the storyline for ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', however. Early in the story Johnny Cage, who believes this is a mundane fighting tournament where a lot of fighters are just in strange costumes, defeats Baraka and is subsequently ordered to "Finish him!" by Shang Tsung. He refuses. Cyrax is later offered the same opportunity after beating Cage and he also stands down. Later in the game, Shao Kahn orders Kitana to kill a Shaolin monk she had just defeated. She refuses, which causes Kahn to kill the monk himself.

* In ''DeadmanWonderland'', when Ganta defeats Minatsuki in the Carnival Corpse battle, the crowd demands that he finish her off. He [[FlippingTheBird flips them off]] in a lampshaded OutOfCharacterMoment.

** Subverted in "A Golden Crown". During the TrialByCombat between sellsword Bronn and Ser Vardis, Lady Lysa calls on the latter to finish him, not realising that he's not holding off deliberately, it's because he can't get an effective blow on his lightly armoured yet more skilled opponent. Ser Vardis obediently charges towards Bronn, who expertly dodges him and inflicts a fatal wound.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones''. In "The Dance of Dragons" a Braavosi swordsman gets Ser Jorah Mormont on his back in the arena and looks to Queen Daenerys, clearly expecting this trope. Daenerys just stares in shock, [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask not wanting Jorah dead yet unwilling to stop events]]. At the urging of the crowd, he decides to finish Jorah anyway, only to get speared InTheBack by another fighter.
