* In ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' continuity, doing this is relatively easy; you simply have to give the genie his or her lamp. Because a genie under this sort of curse is obligated to serve whoever owns it, being given the lamp makes the genie his/her own master, breaking the curse. The problem with this is, whoever does this is not protected from any retribution from the genie from that point on, so evil or abusive masters rarely do it.

(In fact, it is stated in ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersConspiracy'' that there are numerous murder cases in the Shadowchasers' archives where someone was brutally murdered, and all had something in common according to those who knew him: He was once abusive to a valet, manservant, maid, or lover with an odd fondness for strange clothing, and he used to own an old oil lamp. It was obvious what had happened in each case: Someone had eventually given the genie his or her freedom, and the genie had gone back to kill the cruel master out of revenge.)

* In ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'', Jafar makes Abis Mal vow to make this. However, when it's most appropriate to do, Mal (very reasonably) gets cold feet.

** Likewise, in the drow city, some drow are using a summoned genie for target practice, beating him up and then healing him before he gets killed . He begs for you to just kill him already (by the rules of the game, a summoned creature is returned to its home plane unharmed when killed), but doing so will anger the drow.

* Though Genies exist in all versions of ''VideoGame/TheSims'' (via expansions), only ''TheSims3: Showtime'' allows you to free them, which adds them to your family as a fully playable genie-Sim.

* In ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' the series, a little homeless girl who gained possession of a genie named Eden who became Genie's LoveInterest had every intention to free her. At the end of the episode, the girl is about to make the wish but sadly mentions that "[the girl] wished we could be together forever...". She realizes what happened and tries to take it back, but it's too late. Eden, though regretful that she won't be able to spend more time with Genie, is happy to grant the wish since she bonded with the girl and knows that she is still needed. It's also pointed out that Genies have eternity to spend together, and the lives of humans are a relatively short wait compared to that.

** This concept is addressed in another episode, where Chaos creates an EvilTwin of Aladdin, complete with an evil genie under his command. When the evil genie [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever grows to giant size and starts wrecking the city]], Aladdin solves the problem by grabbing his lamp and wishing for him to go away. And he ''does''. When Iago questioned why the guy listened to Aladdin, he replies that he just didn't think his Evil Twin would be the type who'd use a wish to free a genie.
