* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode "The Obsolete Man": the titular character is given this option of execution by any method for the crime of being "[[GoodIsOldFashioned Obsolete]]" (read: having a profession or belief that is no longer required or held by the fascist government). He chooses death by televised detonation of a bomb in his apartment. Why? Turns out it was a {{plan}} to get his executioner to accidentally lock himself in the room and ask, on national state run television, "For the love of God, let me out." The convicted does so, for the love of God, with just enough time for only the executioner to get out. Its okay, because the executioner is sentenced to die by a method of his choice... for the crime of being obsolete.

* ''ComicBook/Papyrus'': the titular character has just been captured by a tribe of pygmy, whose law demands they kill him. Since he saved the chief's son, however, he is given this a variant of this trope as a reward, in that the next thing he'll say will define how he'll die: if he tells the truth, he will be drowned, while if he lies, he will be thrown to the crocodiles. Papyrus gets around the sentence by stating he will be eaten by crocodiles: seeing how this means him drowning will make it a lie and him being eaten by crocodiles will make it the truth, the Pygmies are forced to spare him.
