* In ''Film/BrokenArrow'', Mr. Pritchett agreed to help Deakins steal two nuclear warheads--but not detonate one of them. When he protests, Deakins kills him. Similarly, when Deakins sees his plans going up in smoke (literally) and decides to set off the second one--which would kill him and everyone around him--Kelly lodges a similar protest.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': When the Parshendi killed the Alethi king and retreated to the Shattered Plains, the Alethi declared a war of vengeance on them. Countless young men joined up, determined to show the world that the Alethi would not stand for treachery. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the Shattered Plains, the Parshendi had a massive advantage over the Alethi, so the Alethi chose to lay siege rather than performing a suicidal assault. Then they discovered that [[{{Kaiju}} chasmfiends]] like to pupate on the Plains, and each chasmfiend has a massive gemheart, enough to pay for an army for months. The Parshendi need them as well to feed their own army, so they skirmish over them. It doesn't take long before the Alethi have forgotten vengeance, and are instead just fighting for money. Since the wartime military oaths mean the soldiers can't legally leave, many desert and become bandits prowling the Unclaimed Hills west of the Shattered Plains.

* The guys at ''WebVideo/CinemaSins'' must hate it when this line is used by someone who should have expected something like in whatever they signed up for, as they frequently mock when someone uses it. For example, they respond to the example from ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' with "You fly a military helicopter and you didn't sign up for this shit?!" and the one from ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' gets "Really?! ''You are a SWAT officer!!''"

The result is them mocking this trope on several occasions; for example, they respond to the example from ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' with "You fly a military helicopter and you didn't sign up for this shit?!" and the one from ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' gets "Really?!

** 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.

** 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]].
