* Two men and a woman are candidates as assassins for the CIA. They are given a gun, and told that for their final test, they are to enter a room and kill the person they find there. The first man enters and sees his wife tied to a chair; he gives up on the spot. The second man enters his room; several minutes pass before he exits the room in tears, refusing to kill his wife. The woman then enters her room; several shots are immediately heard, followed by several minutes of crashing, banging, and screaming. The woman exits the room and says, "You could have told me there were blanks in the gun. I had to beat him to death with the chair!"

* A variation in one episode of ''Series/KnightRider'', in which Michael is suspended from FLAG on trumped-up charges and joins up with the villain du jour. He then has to break into Foundation HQ to retrieve a MacGuffin; but Devon catches him in the act and Michael shoots him. He wasn't specifically told to kill Devon, and it wasn't really a test of Michael's loyalty either, but he knew the villain was tapped into FLAG's video surveillance and wanted to give the guy a good show. Also, [[spoiler:it turns out Devon was in on the whole charade, including the fake firing]].

** An earlier scene plays the trope seriously. Faith has told the Mayor that Willow is trying to hack into his computer files, so the Mayor decides that Willow must be killed. When Faith looks upset, the Mayor assures Faith that it's too early in her FaceHeelTurn to expect that of her, and says he'll send a couple of vampires to do the job instead.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', you can overhear one of Joker's goons telling his buddies that Joker once ordered him to kill his sister to prove his loyalty. He did so with no regrets, since he never liked her anyway. Another mook one-ups him, saying that Joker made the same request of him even though he had no sister, so he finally got in his car and ran over the first woman he saw.
