* ''Franchise/Fatal Frame II'' has it in the form of Mio's twin sister, Mayu. The game makes it very clear that she ''is'' dependent on the player, because she's not as brave as Mio. And a limp from an old knee injury causes her to be slow, too, so she will often plead for you to not run too far ahead and not abandon her. And Mio's goal is to keep her sister safe. [[TheLoad What the player thinks of her can vary, though...]]

** In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD'' if you waited long enough, Sonic would run off the screen, which would give you a [[NonstandardGameOver Non-Standard Game Over]].

* The original ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' guilt-trips a player who chooses Nera/Flora over Bianca as a LoveInterest, by presenting Bianca as the ImpliedLoveInterest in the official media ''and'' showing how courting Nera/Flora [[BreakTheCutie will ruin Bianca's life as a whole]]. The remake had to tone this down.

* Website/{{Facebook}} implemented this to prevent people from leaving Facebook. Trying to permanently delete your profile will prompt the site to bring up profile pictures of all the user's friends stating how much they'll miss you. They combine it with making the delete profile command almost impossible to find.

* Canceling an email subscription can involve much the same thing, often times having a message saying "We'll miss you" or "Sorry to see you go", along with a form asking you to explain why you're unsubscribing.

* Clicking on the quit icon in ''Magic Haven: Escape From Imhotep'' displays a picture of the title villain standing gloatingly over some creatures in cages, with the caption "Leaving? Excellent! Your magic friends will serve at my pleasure until you return."

* ''Film/DemolitionMan'' for the 3DO has an interesting and rather jarring case of this. First off, it's a [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames game based on a movie]], but it has the added double whammy of being made during the mid-90's, when "Full Motion Video" was thought to be the future of gaming. The game is a Gallery Shooter with some FPS and fighting game elements as well. You go around shooting the bad guys as they appear on screen and all that stuff. You only have one continue that you can use throughout the whole game. What happens when you game over? SylvesterStallone himself straight up tells you to your face that "You... Suck." among other insults. That's right, the game berates you and makes you feel guilty for ''not'' being able to beat a NintendoHard game that suffers from very poor controls and cheating AI.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ts-i3D8GNuw continue screen]] of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4'' has your character falling down a pit. If you don't insert quarters to continue, they get impaled by spikes at the bottom of the pit. Five seconds of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTbFLqxmXB4 this music]] are more than enough to make you pop in another quarter.
