** Actually, this happened at least twice. The first time, Linus handed his blanket to Charlie Brown, who gave in the moment Linus begged to have his blanket back. Snoopy, however, did ''not'' give in ''at all'' - thereby causing Linus to have a nervous breakdown.
*** Although [[spoiler: that time he actually kicked the habit - just in time for ''someone'' to buy him a new blanket and start the cycle over.]]



** Actually, Blight didn't ''forget'' to tell MAL what would be going on. She was just too mad at him to even consider letting him know the secret.

* ''[[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia The Silver Chair]]'': [[spoiler:Inverted. The Prince has to be tied to a chair because he's about to have an episode of madness, and he orders Puddleglum and the kids not to free him no matter what he says. Once tied up, he begs to be released in the name of Aslan. The protagonists let him loose, and it turns out that he was NotHimself ''before''; at the same hour every day when he is tied to the chair, he is in his right mind, and letting him go broke the [[{{Brainwashed}} spell]]]].

* In ''ComicBook/{{Venom}}'', the Franchise/{{Batman}} realises he has become addicted to the eponymous drug and asks Alfred to lock him in the Batcave for a month. In a slight subversion, Alfred asks to let him out early, but Batman refuses. When he finally emerges, he's wearing the BeardOfSorrow, but is, nevertheless, magnificent.

* A more serious take on this occurs in the sixth book of ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}''. Jake has been taken over by [[PuppeteerParasite an alien invader]] that has complete control over his body and full access to his memories, and the rest of the group decide to tie him up until it starves to death.

The fact that Jake ''doesn't'' do the whole "No matter what I say" routine cements in their minds that he truly has been taken over: the real Jake would want to make sure, beyond a doubt, that the Yeerk was killed.

Added DiffLines:

* In the second season of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', [[BigBad Saiou]], a villain who suffers from SplitPersonality from the influence of the [[EldritchAbomination Light of Ruin]], gains control of a DoomsdayDevice that is activated by two keys. Before he can activate it, his true, benign personality struggles with his evil side, and in a rare moment when his good side dominates completely, gives one key to [[TheHero Judai]] and the other two [[TheRival Edo Phoenix]], telling both ''never'' to give them back to him no matter what. Naturally, his malignant personality regains control shortly, and the rest of the season is focused on him trying to steal them back or convert the two to his side.

Example 3: (Keep in mind this example is only for non-malicious items.) Alice has left Item X in location D (Her house J miles away) because she does not want it for V reason. Bob finds it, and tries to return it. Alice refuses, but Bob is persistent. Alice says Bob can keep Item X, and Bob doesn't want to take it from her because he finds it "stealing" (or any other reason really.) Alice uses this trope, and Bob walks away. He probably does something with it Alice wants to do, and she asks for it back. Bob refuses, because "no matter how much I beg or what have you, don't give X back."
