* In [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayar,]] Count Vorhalas begs Aral Vorkosigan, then Regent, to pardon his son for the capital crime of dueling. Vorkosigan doesn't, and the dead boy's brother later tries to assassinate him for it, leading to Aral's son Miles being crippled in the womb.
** Twenty years later, the tables are turned when Aral Vorkosigan is forced to beg Vorhalas not to press treason charges against Miles that would lead to his execution (and Miles is technically guilty). Count Vorhalas tells Aral to get on his knees like he did when he pleaded for his son's life, and then looks like he will go on to stick the knife in, but Miles [[CallingTheOldManOut calls him out for it,]] warning that if he goes through with this he'll have to answer to ''Cordelia'' Vorkosigan for his revenge. The Count agrees not to lay the charges, but still votes an abstention in Miles's subsequent inquiry.

* Lampshaded in ''The Furies'' (1950) where proud Juan Herrera chooses death by hanging rather than see his friend Vance, daughter of cattle baron T.C., humiliate herself.
-->'''Vance:''' Do you want me to beg? Do you want me on my knees to you for his life?
-->'''T.C.:''' I'd hang him anyway.
-->'''Vance:''' That's what he said.
-->'''T.C.:''' He did, eh? He always was smart.
-->'''Vance:''' And you're not! You're old and foolish and you're made a mistake -- [[WomanScorned it's me you should have hung!]] Because now I hate you in a way I didn't know a human could hate! Take a good long look at me, T.C. You won't see me again [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge until the day I take your world away from you!]]

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' have feudal relationships as one of background themes, so this situation appeared too. [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20030115 Agatha begs the Baron to spare Dr. Beetle]].[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090429 Zola begs Agatha to spare Gil]] (her only really nice moment). [[SubvertedTrope Not that either attempt was really necessary]]; the Baron considered Beetle too useful to execute even if he ''had'' committed treason (and was rather annoyed when Gil ended up semi-accidentally killing Beetle in self-defence) and Gil is Agatha's LOveInterest.

** ''WebAnimation/RoseOfVersaillesAbridged'' spoofs this. Marie tries it as a JediMindTrick; the King is only partly affected, but he sighs and let's Andre go anyway.

** When the Horned King intends to kill Taran and have his revenge, Avalina [[GoThroughMe comes between them]] and begs him to stop. After internal struggling, the Horned King acknowledges that he owes the pig-keeper for saving Avalina [[LimaSyndrome whom he has come to genuinely care for]], repays the debt in his own way (by putting back in place Taran's shoulder that he dislocated) and leaves with Avalina.

* During the course of ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' fic ''Fanfic/HopeForTheHeartless'', [[AllLovingHeroine Avalina]] ends up several times begging [[VillainProtagonist the Horned King]] (her imprisoner who's been [[ResurrectedForAJob resurrected]]) not to kill or hurt several other characters.
** When the Horned King intends to kill Creeper for hitting Avalina and seemingly defying the lich's order to stay out of the girl's sight, she points out that [[LoopholeAbuse the goblin didn't technically defy the order because she didn't really see him]]. Deciding that a good argument deserves a reward, the Horned King lets Creeper live.
