* In the fight against [[spoiler:Odin]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'', you can avoid instant death from his ultimate attack by using one of two commands that cause your character to kneel. There's still a chance that you will die from the damage done, but you at least reduce the chance.
* ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy]]'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII The Emperor]] gets this declaration in the final story mode's battle with him, doubling as IncomingHam.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' - At the end of the ''Legacy'' [=DLC=], the sapient darkspawn Corypheus wakes up after being sealed for more than a thousand years. Despite his disorientation, he quickly demands Hawke and co. kneel before him.
* ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition'' - The Elder One makes his debut by [[spoiler:wiping out Haven]] with his army and his dragon, then demands that the Herald kneel before him. [[spoiler:Clearly, Corypheus is as prideful as ever.]]

* In ''WanderingHamster'', there's a certain sentient spleen who wants Bob to kneel before him. Kneeling gives no results (expect for spleen's comment), and the only way to get past him is to refuse to kneel (and thus, fight him).

* Shao Kahn of ''MortalKombat'' is fond of this trope, being the Emperor of Outworld and all. "Bow to me!" (Ironically, this and his other gloats is a weakness that can leave him vulnerable to an attack by the player.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', Tarakudo: King of the Shadowkhan does this often. Captain Black once responded with, "The only king I bow to is {{Elvis|Presley}}, and I don't see you wearing blue suede shoes."

** In "You Win Or You Die," Cersei offers Ned a chance to submit without prejudice if he kneels, which both his honour and his leg wound prevent.

* ''The Watcher in the Cemetery'', a Franchise/CthulhuMythos short by Ian Watson. The protagonists encounter Cthulhu who promptly kills three of them in a gory and physically impossible manner, then [[ItAmusedMe stops to observe their reaction]]. A pastor shouts for the others to pray to God for salvation. The group falls to their knees, only to stop in embarrassment when they realise it looks like they're worshiping Cthulhu instead.

* Played with interestingly in LightNovel/TheTwelveKingdoms. The mythical beasts known as the ''kirin'' are the only ones able to locate the future Kings/Queens of their lands, and the biggest proof of one person's worth to be chosen as the sovereign is that they're the '''only''' persons a kirin can kneel in front of. They're literally and physically unable to kneel to anyone else, even if they ''do'' try doing it. [[spoiler: That's why {{Evil Prince}}ss Joei gets Keiki stuck in his Beast form, aside of keeping him mute: if he cannot bow to her, the falsehood of her claim to the throne will be revealed.]]
