* Early in the Russian Civil War Red Army commanders would set White officers free provided those swore on their honour as officers and noblemen to not fight against Red Army anymore (regular soldiers naturally joined Red Army of their own free will). But the officers considered any word given to "peasants" null and void and led attacks against Red Army as soon as they go their troops. This led to tales of Red Army's cruelty as those understood their folly and started executing any captured White officer.

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', Power Girl has just punched U-Ban out when Mala and Kizo show up. Kara pretends to surrender so they take her to their headquarters. Nonetheless she warns that if they don't accept her surrender and try to rape her, she will take her chances and fight anyway.
-->Power Girl held up her hands. "Okay. You want me to go with you? I'll go. I surrender."\\
The two Kryptonian men stopped, as she had hoped they would, and peered at her curiously. "You what?", asked Kizo.\\
"I surrender," repeated Kara. "Look at it this way. You guys beat the hell out of me last time we met. I was fresh, then. Right now, I've just had a fight with your brother. I'm not a glutton for punishment. Let's just go wherever you want to take me and be done with it. It'll be easier on all of us."\\
Mala looked at U-Ban. "You beat him thoroughly. And he is our brother."\\
"Your brother tried to rape me," she said, evenly. "And if you try the same, all bets are off."



* ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'': After Sauron had been running around causing trouble for the elves for a while, the mighty Númenóreans get wind of this and gather up an enormous force to utterly annihilate him. When they form up to attack, Sauron's forces are so overwhelmed by the mere sight that they break ranks and desert him. Sauron, being both a shapeshifter and [[SmugSnake a silver-tongued snake]], surrenders and persuades them to take him prisoner. Taken back to Númenor in chains, he eventually ingratiates himself to the point where Númenor is converted to [[ReligionOfEvil Melkorism]] and convinced to mount a [[RageAgainstTheHeavens conquest of Valinor]]. Which leads to the Valar destroying Númenor and most everybody who lived there. This follows an incident in which Sauron was captured by the Valar and almost capitulated for real- but ultimately his {{pride}} wouldn't let him.

* In one Roman gladiator match, a group of Retiarius (gladiators armed with tridents and nets)fought a group of Secutors (gladiators with swords and shields meant to completely counter the Retiraius). The Retiarius dropped their weapons and pretended not to fight. The Secutors dropped their helmets and shields and the Retiarius killed them all. The Roman Emperor at the time was not impressed and probably had them executed.
