* 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.

** In one episode,
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.

** 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.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', Ward inherits Oreg, who has been an immortal slave for hundreds of years, and is bound to a magic ring. As Ward is against slavery, and, in theory, doesn't even tolerate it on his own land, he would very much like to free Oreg. He briefly considers taking Oreg to the palace and ask one of the powerful mages there, but then he realizes that the magic was stronger in the past, and it probably won't help, and he doesn't want to expose family secrets, either. [[spoiler: In the end, he frees Oreg by killing him. Something that makes Oreg happier than Ward.]]

While Oreg can't grant wishes as such, he is a powerful mage and must do whatever he is ordered to do. As Ward is against slavery, and, in theory, doesn't even tolerate it on his own land (a slave, who sets foot on Hurog land, is free from then on), he would very much like to free Oreg. He briefly considers taking Oreg to the palace and ask one of the powerful mages there, but then he realizes that the magic was stronger in the past, and it probably won't help, and he doesn't want to expose family secrets, either.

Genies who retain their powers will often continue to do magical favors for their former masters out of friendship and gratitude, making this a possibility for characters who want to [[WishingForMoreWishes wish for more wishes]]. Other times, genies are inherently a SlaveRace and the only way to free one of them is to wish for them to [[HumanityEnsues no longer be a genie]].
