Loophole Abuse, not this. No wish-granting was involved.
* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', Kreacher takes an "OUT!" shouted at him by Sirius as an excuse to [[spoiler: leave Grimmauld Place and go to the Malfoys, giving Voldemort a source of information about Harry]]. ** Also, Death, in the tale of the Three Brothers in ''Literature/TheTalesOfBeedleTheBard'', pretends to congratulate the titular brothers for cheating death, and rewards them, with full intention of being this. Only the [[YoungestChildWins youngest brother]] sees through the ruse and has his reward tailored specifically to prevent Death doing this to him. The other brothers are [[KarmicDeath not so lucky]].

** The Flying Dutchman gives the main characters three wishes to save themselves from being eaten by him. After accidentally wasting the first two wishes (Patrick wished that they knew the Dutchman would grant them wishes earlier and [=SpongeBob=] wished that Squidward was there to see this), [=SpongeBob=] [[{{Wishsplosion}} wishes for the Dutchman to become a vegetarian]]. It works, but instead of being sent home, the characters are transformed into fruit for a smoothie.

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' adventure path "Legacy of Fire" plays with this. The main antagonist is a genie who's adding minor twists to every wish he grants so that it moves him closer to his ultimate goal; towards the end he resorts to just forcing people to wish for the things he wants to do at swordpoint, but prior to that he tends to just rely on riders and quirks to get what he wants. Meanwhile, the genie backing the heroes is effectively the head of the Society for the Promotion of Ethical Wishcraft and will only engage in this if the player characters keep wishing for stuff she's not willing to give them, like a way to end-run around the adventure or win fights automatically.

* After beating Pearl in a game of Three Card Monte in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', Mike won the right to watch whatever movie he wanted, of which he decided to watch ''Theater/{{Hamlet}}''. Unfortunately, he didn't specify ''which'' production of Hamlet, so Pearl picked out the most dull, boring production she could find.

*** First, Elizabeth manages to [[Sesquipedalianloquaciousness negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal]] in return for the Medallion. However, she neglects to negotiate her return to shore. Barbossa quickly abuses this by kidnapping her, stating that her return to shore was not part of the agreement, and so he "must" do nothing.

* The mundane version happens quite often in Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean. When the deals actually ''are'' fulfilled by both sides, usually someone has twisted the words of the agreement via either LoopholeAbuse or ExactWords. ** Most notably and frequently, Barbossa, particularly in the first movie. ***First, Elizabeth manages to [[Sesquipedalianloquaciousness negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal]] in return for the Medallion. However, she neglects to negotiate her return to shore. Barbossa quickly abuses this by kidnapping her, stating that her return to shore was not part of the agreement, and so he "must" do nothing. *** Secondly, when Will reveals himself as the son of Bootstrap Bill (meaning Barbossa explicitly needs him alive), he negotiates that in return for giving himself up, the crew will not be harmed, and Elizabeth goes free. The crew ends up imprisoned (no word on what the final plan for the crew was, after the curse was broken), and Elizabeth was forced to walk the plank with Jack and marooned on a deserted island. --->'''Will''': Barbossa, you lying bastard! You swore she would go free! --->'''Barbossa:''' Don't you impugn me honor boy! I agreed she would go free, but it was ''you'' who failed to [[LoopholeAbuse specify when or where.]] ** Jack attempts to do this to Davey Jones in the second movie, when they negotiate one hundred souls in return for Jack's freedom. While Jack has every intention of fulfilling that agreement (at first), he tries to rustle up the one hundred souls from [[WretchedHive the island of Tortuga.]] -->'''Mr. Gibbs''': And how do you intend to harvest these 99 souls in three days? -->'''Captain Jack:''' Fortunately he was mum as the condition in which these souls need be.
