* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' had a magical item that makes contracts magically bound so that they ''have'' to be followed through. Fate attempted to use it; he nearly got Negi to promise not to interfere with his plans. [[spoiler:The girls later use it against Dynamis, making him promise to stop trying to interfere with ''their'' plans. Dynamis only agreed because he thought he'd already won anyway, and because while conductive to the Fatettes, it wasn't conductive to the Averrunci.]]

* A wizard-word oath in ''Literature/CounselorsAndKings'' functions like this; if a Halruaan [[TheMagocracy wizard-lord]] swears to do (or not do) something "by wind and word" they are compelled to follow through, though they can interpret the ExactWords rather creatively to find loopholes. For example, when [[EccentricMentor Basel Indoulur]] promises under such an oath to "deal appropriately" with his apprentice after she humiliates a rival wizard, Basel actually ''rewards'' her instead of punishing her, as he felt the other man had it coming. More seriously, supporting villain [[spoiler: Dhamari]] is under an oath to never [[SummonMagic summon]] "any creature he doesn't understand and can't control", which means he has to find an UnwittingPawn to conjure the [[TheFairFolk malevolent fairies]] his plans require, as he'd be physically incapable of doing so himself.

* ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'': Anything someone swears to do in the Ancient Language ''will'' be done-it compels them. The only out is if their personality gets changed so much they really aren't the same person as who swore it.
