* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': John Sheppard offers this to his arch-enemy Koyla, when Koyla threatens to shoot John's commander and close friend [[{{ShipTease}} Elizabeth.]] Notable because only minutes before Sheppard was blithey baiting Koyla and taking down his men, despite Koyla having the city under his control. The moment he directly threatened Elizabeth, John lost it and switched to outright begging.
--> Koyla: "Say goodbye to Doctor Weir."
--> John: "Kolya?! Kolya?! I'll give you a ship! I'll fly it out of here for you myself! KOLYA!!"

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Kuno has a wish granting sword and Ranma (female) offers to do "anything" if he uses the wish for her.

Compare DealWithTheDevil, in which this is often Satan's cue. AnythingButThat often follows this trope when the demand made of the character is the one thing they never want to do. May be followed by ImThinkingItOver.

* A very {{squick}}y version occurs in ''KimbaTheWhiteLion'', in which an ''underaged'' cub [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Lea/Raya]] offered herself as a bride to the ''adult'' lion [=BuBu=], in hopes of making him spare [[BadassInDistress Kimba]]. Even [[SmugSnake Totto, Bubu's advisor]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards seemed appalled by this]].
* Guaranteed to make Yuuko's ears perk in ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' and ''XxxHolic''. Lampshaded in one instance of the latter; Yuuko warns a customer desperate to [[spoiler: have a magical photograph that shows her pushing another woman off a cliff destroyed]] that "one shouldn't say 'I'll pay anything' quite so easily." The customer insists, and so Yuuko grants her wish and names her price: [[spoiler: the customer must never allow her image to be recorded on any kind of media ever again, or else her victim and crime will also appear in the recording. In today's society, with the prevalence of camera phones, security cameras, live TV broadcasts, and the like, she's essentially doomed herself to solitary house arrest for the rest of her life.]]

* Franchise/XMen villain [[KillerRobot Nimrod]] was badly damaged and needed to be repaired. In one alternate future, it attacked the home of {{Storm}} and [[GadgeteerGenius Forge]] (who are married with two kids in this timeline).
