* In ''Film/{{Chocolat}}'', Vianne and her daughter Anouk have gypsy blood and are "cursed to wander" and help towns, which is why they entered the village. At the end, Vianne tries to convince Anouk to leave now that the town is saved, but she ultimately decides that they both feel at home there, and ignores the North Wind's urging to leave, letting someone else fight the battles to be fought. They live happily.

* In ''Film/{{Chocolat}}'', Vianne and her daughter Anouk have gypsy blood and are "cursed to wander" wander", just as Vianne and help towns, her own mother did when Vianne was a child, which is why they entered the village. At the end, Vianne tries to convince force Anouk to leave now leave, but in the process she drops the urn containing her mother's ashes and they are scattered to the wind. Depending on the interpretation you prefer, this either breaks a literal spell or reminds Vianne that the town her mother is saved, but she ultimately decides that they both feel at home there, dead and cannot control her any more. In any event, subsequently Vianne ignores the North Wind's urging to leave, letting someone else fight the battles to be fought. They live happily.

* TheLastTemptationOfChrist has not only the temptations offered to Jesus in the Bible, but a final one which nearly undoes him: [[spoiler: to live a normal, happy life. He actually experiences that life as a hallucination/dream/alternate reality and almost refuses the crucifixion entirely.]]
* ''LifeOfPi'' has the [[spoiler: island covered in delicious, nutritious algae and pools of fresh water. The hero only leaves to continue his quest to return to civilization when he discovers that it ''eats people''...and realizes further that the person it ate probably wasn't even killed by the island but gave up and died of sheer boredom/loneliness/frustration at being trapped on an island with nothing but algae, trees, fish, and meerkats.]]
* ''TheDarkTower'' offers several to Roland (and one [[NoFourthWall directly to the reader]]). In this case, however, it's strongly suggested that by refusing to cry off the Tower, and sacrificing everything he had for his quest, Roland ''[[{{Subversion}} failed]]''. [[spoiler: And so did you. Why didn't you take the happy ending? Was the Tower worth it in the end?]]
* In ''{{Candide}}'', when Candide and Cacambo spend a month in the golden city of El Dorado. However, Cunegonde is not in this city, and so Candide is ultimately unhappy and decides to leave with an enormous amount of gold.

* Baron Mounty Max of Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse has twice been offered the chance to trade his Barony for a Knight Erranthood. He has twice turned the offer down, even though he'd be much happier WalkingTheEarth righting wrongs and punching evil in the face, because he knows that he can do more good for more ponies from his current position in the Night Court.

This cements Mulan's place in the army and turns the FailureMontage into a TookALevelInBadass montage.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has Toriel in the beginning of the game doing everything she can to convince you stay home with her and spend the rest of your life with her as her [[InterspeciesAdoption adopted child]] rather than going out on your own to find your way back home. She eventually decides to fight you to see if you are strong enough to make it on your own. You can choose to flee the fight and you'll be sent back to your room, but a voice will tell you that you have to press on, [[ButThouMust thus you have no choice but to fight your way through Toriel]] or [[SheatheYourSword convince her to let you go without needing to resort to violence]]. [[spoiler: The reason Toriel is against the protagonist wanting to leave is because she had two of her own children die in one day and had seen other kids who had gone through her home also wanting to go back to where they came from, but had later died on their adventures.]]
