* In Music/TheMegas, VideoGame/MegaMan offers one to Proto Man in "I Refuse (To Believe)". For once, it actually ''works'', leading to "Melody From the Past".
-->'''Mega Man:''' Stop pretending you don't have a choice, only that can set you free...This rage is not your destiny.
* Music/ChameleonCircuit's "Exterminate Regenerate" is about two things: Davros telling [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] that they're NotSoDifferent, and the Doctor rejecting this but still offering Davros an alternative to the two of them clawing at each other in a battle that could last to the end of reality.
-->''Exterminate, regenerate\\
You know that it isn't too late\\
To end what seems impossible\\
And leave time turning''

** The AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho half-hour freebie "Forever Fallen" asks the question "what if a villain took up the offer?". It starts with the Seventh Doctor on a space station, giving a THeEvilsOfFreeWill WellIntentionalExtremis a BreakingSpeech on the importans of Free Will and the would-Be Villain stepping down... for now. The Doctor manages to get him to promise to meet him once a year for tea to discuss the matter. The rest of the story is a decade of their tea-dates and the Doctor ever so gently course-correcting his outlook and life from an embittered street-sweeper to becoming a Hero of his people.

* One of the major villains in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', [[spoiler:Magus]], gets one of these. In the final battle against him, when he realizes that he has lost, he admits defeat and invites you to kill him. However, you can take the merciful route, and not only let him live, but convince him to join your party to fight against the ''real'' BigBad.

* In ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', you can also offer try this trope at a few characters, most poignantly to [[spoiler:[[FallenAngel Trias the Betrayer]] by reminding him that the Upper Planes are also a place of forgiveness. Bring [[KnightTemplar Vhailor]] with you and it's a moot point, however, as he'll strike Trias down whether you succeed or no.]]

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': [[PsychopathicManchild Parado]] is offered this after [[TheHeart Emu]] [[spoiler: revives him]]. Other options involved being left to [[BigBad Masamune]] [[EvilerThanThou Dan]] or [[DrivenToSuicide ending]] his life [[spoiler: by his own hand this time. He took the chance as he was afraid of other options more than he was afraid of Emu and realized the wrong of his actions]].

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', Vector of the Barian emperors has proven himself to be a remorseless monster, but when he was about to get absorbed by the series' GodOfEvil, Yuma risks his life to save him, saying he still considers him a friend (since Vector had previously masqueraded as one of Yuma's lovable friends, and it has been revealed that most of his sadistic persona is due to MindRape). While it appears at first that Vector is moved, he reveals his psychotic face again, wanting to take Yuma with him towards their demise, much to the others' shock. However, Yuma still smiles to him and promises him to go with him, so that he is never alone. [[spoiler: This time however, Vector let goes of Yuma and bids him farewell before letting himself be absorbed.]]

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' Goku abruptly ends the battle with Frieza, claiming that the tyrant was no longer a challenge to him and thus not worth fighting anymore. Goku goes on to say that he's satisfied in leaving Namek in the knowledge that [[CruelMercy Frieza would be forever tormented by the humiliation of his defeat at the hands of a Saiyan]]. To reinforce his distaste in continuing the battle Goku powers down from his Super Saiyan form and immediately flies off. Frieza enraged by his words throws an energy disk at Goku (akin to Krillen's destructo disk) as a last ditch effort to kill Goku; this betrayal of the mercy Goku offered Frieza incites his wrath and has him passionately retort: "You truly are a helpless fool! I gave you one last chance to live, and this is how you repay me?!"

* Many antagonists in the ''VideoGame/Fallout'' series can be reasoned with by players with high enough stats in certain areas (usually charisma or speech). While this often merely results in the antagonists committing suicide after realizing the error of their ways this can also lead to a villainous character having a sincere change of heart, joining forces with the player character and ultimately surviving the game.
