* One early use was in a 1930s {{Popeye}} short "Beware of Barnacle Bill", which has Olive rejecting Popeye's marriage proposal, Popeye beating up Barnacle Bill (the person Olive was in love with), and then rejecting Olive's proposal out of spite.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has fun with it, and gave the trope its original name "Turning The Other Cheek": Buttercup tells Bubbles that they shouldn't be "turning the other cheek" on an offer from a league of superheroes, and that offer has a twist: They're not asking the PPG to join (as the PPG has been trying to do, and were rejected simply for being girls) as Bubbles expected (and she was planning on rejecting the offer of course), ''they're'' asking to join the PPG.

* ''{{Doug}}'': One episode begins with Patty being turned down from the school baseball team for being a girl, ends with Patty turning down school coach's offer to let her join after he saw what she could do (or rather, could have done: Roger's game-winning catch for the school was all that prevented her from driving in Doug as the game-winning run for her team the Pulverizers).

* A GuideDangIt moment in the first ''SpaceQuest'' involved this when selling your hoverbike. If taken, the first offer would leave you without a needed item later in the game. Said item would be offered the second time, but ''never again''.

** At the end of the same episode, Bartlet tries to resolve the situation by walking to Capitol Hill to negotiate another compromise solution (earning large amounts of positive press along the way). When the Speaker and his allies respond by keeping Bartlet waiting as they try to decide on their demands he simply walks away, leaving the Speaker painted as the one responsible for the continuing shutdown.

* ''MonstersVsAliens'': After Susan turns into a [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever 50-foot woman]] (well, 49-foot, 11 and 1/2-inch woman) on what was to be her wedding day, her fiance breaks it off with her. Later, after she helps save the world, he offers to "forgive" her and take her back (largely to further his own career as a newscaster). Cue the ([[JerkAss much deserved]]) HumiliationConga.
