* Surprisingly in another ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddparents'' fanfic, ''FanFic/NeverHadAFriendLikeMe'', Norm ''doesn't'' attempt to reach this goal for most of the story since he is, for all intents and purposes, pretty free while his lava lamp belongs to [[OriginalCharacter Ama]][[ShrinkingViolet nda]]. [[spoiler:He even turns down the offer to be freed when she makes it.]]
** [[spoiler:Amanda finally makes the wish to free him during the confrontation against Bob in an attempt to save Norm's life.]]

* Subverted in the ''DancingGods'' series with the Lamp of Lakash. Anyone greedy enough to make a second wish from the lamp would ''automatically'' free the genie and take its place. The "three wishes" story was a clever dodge by the genies to get themselves freed by unwitting masters.

* 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.
