-->'''Trinity:''' I guess this makes us even.



* ''Film/BatmanBegins'': The malicious variant of the trope comes up when [[spoiler: Ra's Al Ghul burns down Wayne Manor and leaves Bruce to die]].

* At least in ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'', Drow has an interesting variation: they usually just don't get a concept of altruism, but ChronicBackstabbingDisorder is counterproductive more often than not, so what to do?

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Stroud will declare that he and Anders are even if Anders persuades him to save [[spoiler: a tainted Bethany / Carver]] by making them a Grey Warden. Why he owed Anders is left to the player's imagination.
* In ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'', after helping out The King with a series of quests, he'll say that he owes you a favor, which you can cash in immediately for either a fake passport to The Strip, money or membership into his gang. However, if you hold onto it, during a quest where the NCR wishes to make peace with the Kings, you can use your favor to make him make him agree to settle things with the NCR, at which point he states that you're now even.



* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'', Begging for his life, [[spoiler: Julius Little]] attempts to convince the protagonist that they wouldn't be alive without his interference, and the protagonist responds, alerting [[spoiler: Julius]] to the fact that the protagonist wouldn't have been in a coma if it weren't for him. In a grave voice, Julius mutters that this makes them even. The protagonist answers this with [[spoiler: shooting Julius in the head, and dropping a "Not really."]]

* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Moe asks a man to open his store again, a few minutes after he's closed for the night, reminding him of when Moe saved his life by pulling him from a burning car. The man agrees but says that this makes them even.



* Similarly to the Phineas & Ferb example above, the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Spike at Your Service" has Applejack save Spike's life. Spike then reveals that thanks to the Noble Dragon Code, he has to serve her for the rest of his life. She quickly [[UnwantedAssistance gets tired of his attempts to help her do everything]], and her requests for him to stop get ignored. Rainbow Dash suggests that Spike should be given a task so pointless and impossible that he quits, but that plan doesn't work either. Eventually, the ponies engineer a situation in which Spike has to rescue Applejack to make them even.
