** Early in the game, [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Neku and Shiki]] both make a deal with [[spoiler: Young Xehanort]] to turn Sora and Riku, respectively, over to him in exchange for being able to leave the Reapers' Game and go home. However, both Neku and Shiki turn on him when [[spoiler: Young Xehanort]] actually attacks them, as he apparently promised them beforehand that he wouldn't hurt Sora and Riku.

* One of Xander Drax's underlings in ''Film/ThePhantom'' is uncomfortable with the idea of obtaining power through occult means. He's ''speared in the back'' for his trouble.

** In the US Military services at least, this is a legal defense for refusing to obey orders, but not quite desertion. There is a condition, however - it's only valid if your commanding officer is ordering you to commit a war crime, and you'd better be able to defend your actions during a court martial

* Two of the people in the Paris stage of ''VideoGame/Hitman2016'' are working for Dalia Margolis, the head of an international spy ring called IAGO. Both of them regret it because it went too far.
** Helmut Kruger is a model and actor working for Dalia as a HoneyTrap to romance secrets from women, but he is horrified when Dalia gives him cyanide to potentially (hint: explicitly) murder the woman he's sleeping with.
** Hailey is even more justified than Helmut as she is only working for Dalia because she's TheMole for Victoria St. Clare. Yes, she's a spy but she's a spy for a ''fashion magazine'', and she's rightfully afraid for her life in case Dalia pulls YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness on her. [[spoiler: She will be murdered if you don't sabotage the laptop but if she survives she [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere flees for her life]] with a bodyguard who's been hiding her secret]].

* A double-sided version in the ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' episode where Timmy summons [[TheTrickster the April Fool]]. After the Fool almost sends Timmy's parents plummeting to a gruesome death as a "prank", forcing Timmy to save them, Timmy complains that the "prank" was far crueler than what he'd signed on for; the Fool counters that ''he'' hadn't signed on to have his pranks constrained by "compassion". The deal promptly breaks down.
