* Though not expressly named, there are overtones of this in ''{{Theatre/Macbeth}}'' when Macduff's response to Malcolm's assertion that he is a deviant with an insatiable sexual appetite is "We have women enough." Thankfully, this is a SecretTestOfCharacter on Malcolm's part, which has made the scene problematic, if not completely baffling, for actors and scholars.

* Played with in ''Film/TheEigerSanction'': Clint Eastwood as a college professor, who is approached by an attractive young female student before an exam. She suggestively tells him she is willing to do anything to improve her grade. After confirming that she can be home alone that evening, he tells her to "break out the books and study [her] little ass off."

A stock phrase and a sentiment. The usual response is, "''Anything???''" A character, usually a sympathetic one, is all out begging another for a favor--or to be spared a cruelty.

* For many tropers, when you hear PleaseIWillDoAnything, you think of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6m7NR6iYjg#t=73s this scene]] from ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' (too bad for the Count that he didn't have the "Anything" Inigo wanted...):

* In the ''Fanfic/TranscendenceAU'', demons love nothing more than being summoned by someone foolish or desperate enough to blurt this out. They usually take the opportunity to claim ownership of the person's soul.

* A couple of examples in ''Literature/TheColdestGirlInColdtown'':
** The gates of the titular vampire quarantine zone are festooned with posters made by people hoping to hire bounty hunters to purchase a loved one's freedom from quarantine through the capture of a vampire. One of the posters names the reward as "anything we have, anything you might want, anything at all".
** At the climax, a cornered [[VillainsWantMercy villain]] tells his enemy "I will give you anything" and "I will make every single impossible dream you've had come true" if she spares him. [[spoiler:She forces him to confess his greatest crime to the world, then kills him anyway.]]

* In ''Disney/BigHero6'', billionaire Alistair Krei responds to an attempt on his life with this offer. However, given that his attacker is motivated by [[spoiler:revenge for his daughter, whose death he believes was caused by Krei's reckless pursuit of profit]], the implicit offer of money in exchange for Krei's life is angrily rejected.

* In the opening of ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'', the heroine is arrested for prostitution, the punishment for which is [[CrapsackWorld left to the arresting officer's discretion]]. She makes this offer. The policemen explain that yes, she ''will'' do anything--then they'll kill her.
