* In GeorgeRRMartin's ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' novel ''A Clash of Kings'', Jon Snow prepares to kill the captured wildling Ygritte, which he is reluctant to do both on account of her gender and that she had surrendered. For her part, she faces death with equanimity, although it's plain she'd rather not die. Finally she tells him to hurry because she "can't stay brave forever." That's when he tells her to go.

* In ''KateModern: The Last Work'', the dying [[spoiler:Tez On Toast]] starts taunting the heroes, telling them to finish him off. Charlie replies that they don't need his murder on their conscience, to which he retorts, "What are you talking about? You've already killed me!" They walk off, leaving him to bleed to death.

Rather frequently, here is where you [[YouWillBeSpared receive the surprising news]] that you will live, which can be because of a variety of reasons. Perhaps [[WorthyOpponent your enemy is honorable]] and/or [[SparingTheAces impressed by your courage]], or perhaps it's because [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou you are needed]]. Or maybe [[FriendOrFoe you were mistaken about who was your enemy]], because of [[WouldNotShootAGoodGuy the way you were lied to about this character]]. (Or perhaps they know that [[CruelMercy you'd rather die than suffer the humiliation of having to live with the loss]].) On other occasions, "get it over with" may be your FamousLastWords, but at least you went down swinging. (In which case, it is an unusual subtrope of LastRequest.)

Can be a form of ShutUpHannibal In which case, it may give the hero an opening to turn the tables -- partly because it's commonly the [[ItsAllAboutMe most egotistical villains]] that inspire it. Compare SwordOverHead. Contrast YouWillBeSpared.

* ''Series/{{Rome}}''. Titus Pullo and Octavian interrogate a man they suspect of sleeping with Vorenus' wife. He readily confesses once they start to torture him and gives this trope. Pullo is entirely willing to oblige, but Octavian stops him, realising that he's willing to die to cover up something. [[spoiler:He's fathered a child by her, who would be killed if the truth got out.]]

** When Pullo is sentenced to death in the arena, he refuses to pick up a sword; he just sits on the ground and tells the gladiators to kill him. They're rather flummoxed by this, until (unfortunately for them) they succeed in goading him to fight via his BerserkButton.
