* In ''VideoGame/DeusEx'', Gunther Hermann asks for a weapon after being rescued in the first mission. Whether or not you give him one affects his attitude towards you in the earlier missions. Interestingly, you can even give him just a knife and it will be enough for him to get the job done. Later in the game, Gilbert Renton also asks for a gun to take out the gangster Jojo Fine by himself and again, the decision to give him one or not has some (minor) effect on the plot.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': In [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E14LegacyOfMandalore "Legacy of Mandalore"]], Ezra tosses Sabine his lightsaber when they see Gar Saxon [[spoiler:sneaking up on Sabine's mother with the Darksaber.

Finally, the ensuing duel proves to her family that she's worthy [[spoiler:of the Darksaber]].)
