* When Michael Jordan signed the contract with Nike for his signature Air Jordan shoes, NBA fined him 5000$ per game, because the shoes didn't have enough white color on them. Nike gladly paid the fine for MJ and started advertising the shoes as "Banned", knowing the appeal of this trope.

* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' uses this with a side of PlayingThePlayer. Psionic empires that breach The Shroud can make contact with something calling itself The End of the Cycle, promising incredible rewards - a doubling of all income, production and scientific output - if you sign this DealWithTheDevil. The text box to accept this is headed with '''"Do not do this,"''' but of course seasoned Grand Strategy players are going to want to see what happens, and whether they can find a way to weasel out of any negative consequences. The short answer: no. [[spoiler:Fifty years after accepting the bargain, you lose ''everything'' - every ship, every space station, every planet in your empire - except for one lonely colony led by the only leader sane enough to see what was coming. And you get to watch as a demonic super-entity proceeds to exterminate everything in the galaxy, leaving you for last. Even if other factions manage to defeat the End of the Cycle, you're stuck with a tremendous diplomacy malus for bringing it about, so they'll probably come after you next.]]

** Especially noticeable with [[StalkerWithACrush Gauron]], who actually had [[WifeHusbandry two beautiful girls]] who were desperately in love with him, and [[LoveMartyr whose existence revolved around him]]. Did he care? No. He just can't seem to forget that [[{{Shotacon}} beautiful and emotionless boy]] he saw [[LoveAtFirstSight once upon a time]], who currently hates him with a passion and loves to beat the shit out of him.
