* Played with in ''Literature/TerraIgnota''. Chagatai believes J.E.D.D. Mason, who believes himself to be a god, placed a geas on her, which led her to put herself under a ''[[CoolAndUnusualPunishment modo mundo]]''. After she accidentally destroyed a priceless book, J.E.D.D. Mason told her that the protagonist of every work of fiction is Humanity, and the antagonist is God. Ever since that Chagatai's found herself unable to enjoy any entertainment without agonizing over that struggle, swearing off fiction forever. It's pretty clear that nothing would happen should she revise that decision, but Chagatai herself strongly believes that something unusual happened.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'', [[TheScottishTrope a character who must not be named]] has the power to kidnap children, but only [[SpeakOfTheDevil if they say his name out loud]]. At one point in his debut episode, he's in a bunk at a camp filled with kids, but is only able to speak to and interact with the ones who are foolish enough to say CandleJack.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', [[AbusivePrecursors the Primiodals]] placed one on their creations, [[ServantRace the gods]]. It forbad them from directly attacking any Primoldial (except in self defence or on the order of [[KingOfAllCosmos Theion]]). The gods got around this by giving power to mortals whose free will means that their actions are seen as sperate from the gods. They were then free to help these humans as long as they themselves didn't attack a Primoldial; anything else was fair game.

* Not stated to be such, but this is more or less the case with the Witch King of Angmar in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. It was prophesied that he shall not fall by the hand of Man, and in the end he is taken down by a hobbit and a woman.

* In the anime version of ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'', [[spoiler: Alcyone]] turns out to be under this. [[spoiler: The condition is that she'll never reveal Debonair's existence or location to anyone on pain of death. Whenever Alcyone was on the verge of talking about Debonair, she experienced sudden pain as result of the geas, [[BrokenBird which really]] [[BrainwashedAndCrazy doesn't imp´rove]] [[TheOphelia her weakened]] [[EmptyShell mental/physical state]]. When she finally forces herself to tell the Magic Knights about Debonair's location (Cephiro's Underside), in the very last episode, [[CessationOfExistence the geas erases Alcyone from existence]], and she disappears [[DyingDeclarationOfLove reaffirming her love for Zagato]].]]



** In ''LightNovel/FateZero'', Kiritsugu uses one to eliminate Lord El-Melloi as a Master: he kidnaps El-Melloi's wife, and threatens to kill her, unless El-Melloi orders his Servant to commit suicide, removing himself from the Holy Grail War, in which case Kiritsugu will geas himself into never harming El-Melloi or his wife. El-Melloi accepts (as a magus himself, he can see that the self-geas scroll Kiritsugu is holding is genuine), and [[spoiler:Kiritsugu's partner immediately kills both El-Melloi and his wife... after all, ''she'' wasn't under a geas to do them no harm.]]

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the [[spoiler: Curse of Valla]] can be seen as a geas. [[spoiler: After Anankos took over, he places a spell under the land: if anyone who's been there and returned to the other lands tries to talk about it outside of Valla's territories, his/her body will [[DisappearsIntoLight dissolve into water]].]] As a result, in the past [[spoiler: Azura's mother Arete, the former Queen of Valla and later the Queen of Nohr, pretty much [[HeroicSacrifice killed herself to tell a young Azura about Valla itself]] so she would keep the knowledge about it, and Azura could ''not'' properly tell the Avatar about Valla until the GoldenPath took place.]]

* Ko-Kraham's curse in ''Literature/Birthright2017'' works as a kind of Geas. Sabrina is compelled to follow the commands Ko-Kraham gives her. There's no condition for breaking it--Sabrina is simply unable to break the commands.

** Bartimaeus explains that obeying the orders is necessary, since there was one djinni that refused to kill another djinni it loved. The djinni's repeated refusal to obey the order tore apart his essence and caused him to explode, destroying the prince commanding him and the prince's entire palace. Since then, magicians tend to be more careful about which djinni they summon.

Since then, magicians tend to be more careful about which djinni they summon. Also, and perhaps even more importantly, they direct the spirits they do summon to try to directly go after attacking magicians, thus avoiding such messy business. And, for their part, the spirits have learned to be more careful about forming attachments with each other.
