* 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.

'''Cardinal Ximinez:''' You have one last chance. Confess the heinous sin of heresy. Reject the works of the ungodly--''two'' last chances. And you shall be free--''three'' last chances. You have ''three'' last chances, the nature of which I have divulged in my previous utterances.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Tales|Series}}'' series, the heroes almost always try and reason with the BigBad at the end, which never works.

** One notable instance is the [[BigBad Big Bad]] of the [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]] DLC Lonesome Road, Ulysses, who wants to launch nukes at both the NCR and Legion, as well as kill the Courier for an incident from their past. With the highest speech check of 100 (90 if strongly allied with a faction) he can be convinced not only to allow you control of the nukes, but he'll also help save you from the ambush he planned for you.

Compare SaveTheVillain. Flip the speaking roles, and it's WeCanRuleTogether. In particularly poignant examples, one party can attempt to take the offer after all, [[HeelFaceDoorSlam only to learn]] that it's now OffTheTable.

* In ''[[ComicBook/SpiderMan Amazing Spider-Man #500]]'', Spidey sees a vision of a possible future, the end of his career. His future self is at his uncle's grave, the cemetery itself surrounded by a SWAT team. a plainclothes officer approaches him, addresses him as "Peter" and pleads for him to surrender, claiming the plea bargain still stands. (Whatever crime has been committed remains unknown, but is likely murder.) Spidey refuses, gives a few words of encouragement to the younger one watching, and then turns to fight the police, eventually being gunned down. [[spoiler:(This was later retconned to show it wasn't Peter or even an alternate version of Peter, but an alternate version of Ezekiel.)]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''; the episode "XCIV" has two examples- in a flashback, Jack's father offers mercy to some bandits that attacked him and his family, quickly dispatching them when they refuse. May years later, Jack makes the same offer to the Daughters of Aku when they catch up to him, but they too refuse. [[spoiler: At least three of them are dead before the end of the episode, and the fate of the other three is uncertain.]]

* ''Three'' characters get a last-second chance in the Light Side path of ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. [[spoiler:Bastila and Juhani]] can be persuaded to take it; ([[spoiler:Malak]]) cannot.

* Kyle Katarn to Desann in ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Jedi Outcast]]'', as seen in the page quote. No luck, but at least it manages to make him angry. Kyle's student Jaden Korr has even less success trying this on Alora in the next game; she just laughs.
