** In the ''EnchantedForestChronicles'', when presented with this choice, Princess Cimorene immediately chooses "old age". The genie admits that this is a clever response, but refuses to accept it until [[spoiler: Cimorene figures out that he hasn't been trapped long enough to qualify, under the standard fairytale rules that operate in the Enchanted Forest, for the "death instead of wishes" option. Rather than get in trouble for trying to break the rules, the genie agrees to go back into his bottle until he has accumulated enough time -- by which time, in all likelihood, Cimorene ''will'' be dead of old age.]]

* ''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.
