* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}'', Granny Weatherwax plays a game of cards against Death for the life of a small child. If Granny wins, Death takes the soul of a cow instead. If Death wins, he gets the kid and Granny. Fortunately, this is the Discworld Death, who happens to be on the side of the living. Granny cheats and deals herself a better hand than Death, but he stops her, switches the cards... and then complains that he got "four ones" (read: four aces) resulting in a defeat. Rather an odd case of the trope since both characters were technically on the same side, but still.

She then notices Death seems to be favoring his arm due to the cold and sets it back into place, and he asks what she would have done if he hadn't lost.
--> '''Granny:''' I'd have broken your bloody arm, for starters.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', this is stated to be the real reason why [[spoiler:Sasuke]] could win against [[spoiler:Itachi, who still completely dominated their fight and dropped dead right before he could finish the fight.]]
** [[spoiler:To be clear, this trope occurred when Itachi was ''terminally ill ''and ''almost legally blind,'' and even then, he pretty much beat Sasuke. [[CursedWithAwesome The man was too good for his own good.]]]]

** [[spoiler:To be clear, this trope occurred when
Itachi which wanted to wear Sasuke down enough in order to release Orochimaru and to rid Sasuke from the cursed seal. He also knew he was ''terminally ill ''and ''almost legally blind,'' going to die in that fight, one way or another.
** [[spoiler:This is also the reason the victory Kakashi in a battle with Obito. The entire fight with Kakashi, was planned Obito in order to remove Madara's seal as it prevented him from becoming the Ten Tails Jinchuuriki. So Obito allowed Kakashi hitting him in the heart, to remove Madara's seal

* The campaign mode for ''{{Naruto}}: Ultimate Ninja 3'' makes heavy use of this trope. In order for the story to advance, Naruto has to defeat most of the other Leaf ninja in single combat, including adult chunin and jonin who are canonically stronger and ''much'' more skilled than he is. However, since the competition is a friendly one and Naruto has more emotionally invested in it than they do, the battles with stronger ninja such as Shizune, Anko, and Kakashi tend to end with Naruto absolutely exhausted and the stronger ninja saying "Okay, that was pretty good, you obviously care more about this than I do, so here are my {{Plot Coupon}}s," having not even broken a sweat.

* Spoofed in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. Satan challenged Jesus to fight for the fate of the world. It was a scam. Satan knew everyone would bet on him, given how strong he was compared to Jesus (this was before he turned {{Badass}} in "Red Sleigh Down"), so Satan bet on Jesus and threw the match, returning to hell with all the money.

* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' during the climax of the Eldritch Moon set the Gatewatch [[spoiler: seal Emrakul within the moon]]. However, the spell to do it was failing until [[spoiler: Emrakul possessed Tamiyo and finished the binding for her.]] It's implied this version of the spell is temporary, as Jace had spoken with some manner of [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith avatar]] which had complained it wasn't the right time. Yet.

* In ''BaldursGate 2'', Kangaxx is a disembodied lich, whose body was torn apart, its bits hidden in tombs. If you reunite his body for him, he rewards you (or attempts to) with death. If he fails, he laughs madly, as he apparently needed to get his body back first, ''then'' have it destroyed, to be transformed into a demi-lich, which is much harder to kill and much more likely to ruin your day.
