* In the ''SantaClausIsCominToTown'', Burgermeister Meisterburger makes a decree that outlaws Toymakers and toys in a {{Ruritania}}-like town. Because he's a jerkass (and in charge for some reason, which is strange given that he focuses all his attention on his rather silly rule rather than actually handling the affairs of his town).
* ''Film/{{Gullivers Travels|2010}}'' features it in the first part.
* The cut-off decree in ''{{Shrek}}'' counts.
* In ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'' (1922), the town council decrees people are forbidden from transporting plague victims to the hospital to avoid spreading the disease. Since it's a silent film, a town crier is shown banging a drum, and the proclamation is shown on a TitleCard.

* In the ''BookOfEsther'', King Ahasuerus drunkenly requests that his wife, Queen Vashti, come to his party wearing her crown to show off her beauty. She refused the request, and he got mad. His advisors raised concerns that the women of the Persian Empire would rebel against their husbands and upset the social order, so they pressured him to divorce her and write a decree stating that the man is the head of the household. He complies, and sends his wife away. A few days later, he feels bad, but since there was no taking back a royal decree in the Persian Empire, there was nothing he could do. The advisors then take beautiful young virgins from all over the empire for him to choose as his next queen.
