* In ''The Green King'', the king promises the dying queen, on her request, not to refuse their daughter what she asks for. All the WickedStepmother has to do to get the king to marry her is persuade the daughter to ask.
* In ''Literature/TheBlackThiefAndTheKnightOfTheGlen'', the queen persuades the king to promise to protect her sons by any WickedStepmother by raising them in a tower. The stepmother manages to talk him into bringing them back.
-->''I am now going to leave you, and as you are young and in your prime, of course after my death you will marry again. Now all the request I ask of you is that you will build a tower in an island in the sea, wherein you will keep your three sons until they are come of age and fit to do for themselves; so that they may not be under the power or jurisdiction of any other woman. Neglect not to give them education suitable to their birth, and let them be trained up to every exercise and pastime requisite for king's sons to learn. This is all I have to say, so farewell.''
* In an Icelandic fairy tale, the queen asks the king to promise to marry a great princess, someone accustomed to courts, so she would not have her head turned by becoming queen.

* The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a non-profit that grants the "wishes" of children with life-threatening diseases; for example, the foundation was inspired by the 1980 story of a 7-year-old boy with leukemia who was befriended by a U.S. Customs officer who granted his wish to be a police officer by having a custom-tailored police uniform made for him, giving him a ride in a police helicopter, and arranging for him to be sworn in as an honorary Department of Public Safety patrolman.
