--> **Mitch**: You know the first time I tried to talk to you, you embarrassed me, so I teased you a little, which maybe I shouldn't have done, so I'm sorry. But now you're sitting over there, playing with your knife, trying to frighten me... (nervously) which you're doing a really good job! (coldly) But if you're going to kill me, get on with it. If not, shut the hell up! I'm on vacation.

* In ''Film/CitySlickers'', after several personality clashes between Mitch and [[BadassGrandpa Curly]], the former finally delivers this combined with an apology and a ''ReasonYouSuckSpeech'', all the while Curly is sharpening a ''massive'' knife.

* In {{Utawarerumono}}, After Hakuouro completely defeats fellow Emperor and friend Kuya, he stands in front of her barely functional HumongousMecha... and surrenders. If she kills him, she will have won the war she's practically lost, her country will flourish, and her people will no longer be [[FantasticRacism persecuted]]. Kuya realizes she can't kill a friend in cold blood, and moreover, that cooperation is what she should have tried, rather than forced unification. Unfortunately, things [[MindScrew go downhill]] [[BigNo from there]] [[BreakTheCutie rather quickly]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The Hound invites Arya to take a swing at his head with a rock, but if she fails he will break both her hands. AnswerCut to a sulking Arya riding on the Hound's horse.
** Tywin Lannister orders his guards to leave him alone with HotBlooded Oberyn Martell, who is genre savvy enough to know he will not survive the attempt.

Added DiffLines:

* In his autobiography ''About Face'', Colonel David Hackworth is responsible for toughening up a unit in Vietnam, and makes himself so unpopular that a rumor spreads about a contract on his life. When the company supposedly responsible for this contract comes under fire, Hackworth decides to call their bluff by advancing out in front of them so even the most inadequate marksman could hit him. It works perfectly because the troops were more concerned with getting out of the ambush (and hoped their CO would help them do that) than settling scores.

This trope describes the situation where 1) Alice has a reason to kill Bob, 2) Bob knows this, and 3) Bob decides that the best way to handle Alice is to get both of them alone together and give her exactly what she wants--a chance to take his life.
