* ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'' suggests this as a possible way that the [[CosmicHorror Nothing]] might grant "favors." One of the source books includes an example of a Shiba bodyguard who was being blackmailed by the [[DesignatedVillain Scorpion Clan]] and made a deal with an agent of the Nothing to get rid of the Blackmail. The agent did so--by telling everyone the Shiba's secret, eliminating the hold that the Scorpion had on him but ruining his life in the process.

* WesternAnimation/TheGarfieldShow actually had an episode that [[DiscussedTrope discussed]] this trope. After Odie finds a bottle with a genie in it at the beach, Jon does some research and discovers that while some genies are good, some are also bad. [[GenreBlind Ignoring that last bit]], he frees the genie (named Omar) and as expected, he is a bad genie, and he demands that ''Jon'' grant ''him'' three wishes. When he has one wish left, he uses it to get unlimited wishes. When Jon fails to comply, he is turned into a frog. Thankfully, Garfield discovers that to defeat the genie, he has to him to say his own name backwards.

* Japan in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' {{Deconstruction}} fic ''Mistakes'' managed to Jackass Genie ''himself.'' He'd found out that his humans were [[WorldWarTwo doing unspeakable things to his brothers]] and confronted his Prime Minister. Nation-tans have to obey orders from their human leaders. Under normal circumstances, "forget about them, we have bigger problems" would have been dismissed as a colloquialism, but Japan really, really wanted to forget that he'd played a part in getting his own brother raped. [[LaserGuidedAmnesia So he did.]] China was not pleased.

** "The Tale of the Time Trap" has Belle, who loves to make wishes as disastrous as possible. "Someone once wished for an exciting voyage; I gave them the ''Titanic''. A kid didn't want to go on a camping trip; I exploded the volcano at Mount St. Helens. WorldWarI? A reporter wanted an interesting story." The female genie trapped in the box also makes life hell for the protagonist, and for her own amusement, twists his every wish so that everything turns out wrong. He wants a book report that he forgot at home, but the one she gives him is about the movie adaptation. He wants superior athletic skills, but hits the coach in the face with a dodgeball and gets detention. She gives him a new car, but it's someone else's, and he's taken into custody by police for grand theft auto. He wants her to leave him alone, but he's placed in a dark, lonely dimension all by himself. He wishes himself "out of this nightmare", but is placed in a timeline where he never existed. He wishes himself back to the day before, when he bought the box, and ends up right in the middle of traffic[[note]]Though this one actually works out, since he keeps his knowledge of the genie, and is able to avoid buying the box and getting stuck with her[[/note]].

** The revelation from the end of Season 2 that Shenron is, in fact, a servant of [[spoiler:[[HumanoidAbomination Mr. Popo]]]] may explain his more malevolent nature.
