* Video game example (Subversion?): In ''BreathOfFireIII'', the main character is put into this situation, in the "win or die" version. He ''loses'', but as he is the prize demanded by the winner, he is let off the hook.

* Virtually any gladiator movie
* In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', it is {{implied}} that SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker has the thugs of a crime boss he has just killed fight to the death with a broken pool cue, as he "only had one opening" in the gang he was forming. Being the Joker, it was almost certainly [[ForTheEvulz for his own amusement]].

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', "The Cat and the Canary" and "Grudge Match". Both featured a secret underground super-powered fighting circuit run by the villainess Roulette. The latter episode resorted to [[{{Brainwashed}} mind control]] to effect [[FanService girl]]-on-[[FetishFuel girl]] {{Catfight}}s.

* The 2009 ''WesternAnimation/AstroBoy'' film has one of these in the robot games. [[spoiler:As you can probably guess, the titular boy ends up in them against his will. He (unwillingly) destroys almost every robot sent against him - until Zog shows up. Fortunately, Zog won't fight him either.]]

* ''Film/EscapeFromLA'' (In a variation, Snake Plissken, an unbeatable dirty fighter, has to win a steel-cage ''basketball game'' in order to escape. The danger coming from the fact that if he doesn't make enough goals, he gets shot to pieces)
** Notably, the game is ''impossible'': it requires scoring 25 points (standard basketball rules apply), crossing the court each time, in ''60 seconds''. Which makes the fact that Snake ''succeeds'' all the more badass.
*** The last shot is full-court, and Creator/KurtRussell ''actually made the shot in real life''.
** In the first Plissken film, ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'', it's a more conventional boxing/wrestling match he's forced to participate in.
