* In ''Theatre/JacobMarleysChristmasCarol'' [[spoiler:Scrooge inadvertently does this to ''himself'' when he begs to be killed, which makes Death appear to grant his wish]].



** A wish which, by the way, ''doesn't come true'', since it's only result is to have the Valkyrie recruit her. [[spoiler: The implication may be that Yumei's parents are in Valhalla, and by becoming an Einherjer, Yumei is destined to be reunited with them eventually, but this is never explicitly stated in any way.]]

* In ''Manga/SakuraGari'', Masataka wishes for his boss Souma's death (by then he has ''a lot'' of reasons to want it, since [[spoiler: Souma was forcing him to work off his brother's debt with sex... but said brother was dead, [[KickTheDog and Souma hid that from him]].]]). Souma, who is madly in love with Masataka (but [[RapeIsLove very bad]] at expressing it), takes it literally and [[DrivenToSuicide slashes his wrists]], much to Masataka's dismay.

* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' had an episode where Will told off his uncle's JerkAss political mentor-turned-rival, including a "drop dead." Seconds later, he has a fatal heart attack. Will attends the funeral out of guilt, only to learn that he was pretty well universally hated - most of the "mourners" are there just to make sure he's really gone. Will admonishes them for their callousness, causing one to ask who he is; when he responds "I'm the dude who killed him," he gets a standing ovation. "Tough crowd."
