* ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'': The gentle angel Pygar chooses to save the evil Black Queen from being consumed by the Mathmos at the end, despite the fact that she had tried to kill him by the same method earlier. His reason to do so amounts to "TurnTheOtherCheek".

* A variation occurs in SUDA 51's ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes''. [[spoiler:In this case, our AntiHero, up-and-coming assassin Travis Touchdown, has ''already'' dealt a fatal wound to his opponent Destroyman by impaling him through the chest with his beam katana. Nevertheless, Destroyman begs Travis to help him. Travis, who has already fallen for Destroyman's tricks a couple of times before, rips the weapon violently out of his chest. As his final vindictive act, Destroyman whips around and opens fire on Travis with his nipple-mounted machine guns (yes, really); he suffers his KarmicDeath immediately thereafter, however, as Travis simply cleaves Destroyman from crotch to skull while bullets whiz past on either side of him]].

[[spoiler:The death is also subverted in that, for entirely unexplained reasons, each half of Destroyman was preserved and outfitted with a robotic other half, resulting in two Destroymen]].

* In ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', right after Classic Sonic defeats the [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Death Egg Robot]], a time portal opens up behind the Death Egg Robot and starts pulling it in with Dr. Eggman still inside. Eggman immediately begs for Sonic to save him, and Sonic makes an attempt but is too late, backing out before he gets sucked in too. [[spoiler:This was part of Eggman's plan from the start--or rather, Modern Eggman's plan with Classic Eggman in the know, getting taken into the portal on purpose so the two could join up in person.]]

** In ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', Beast saves Gaston...from Beast. He's holding Gaston over a ledge of the castle, but instead of dropping him, he puts him back on solid ground after Gaston begs for his life and says a firm GetOut. Gaston doesn't listen and tries to kill Beast again, at which point he slips and gets his DisneyVillainDeath. Still, Beast got to show how much of a good guy he had become.

When Imhotep is hanging over a literal gateway to Hell and his lover abandons him to his fate, Rick actually feels sorry for him and attempts to pull him up, but a heartbroken Imhotep instead accepts his fate and lets go willingly.

** The prequel, ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'', shows that is what sparked the Joker's fascination with Batman in the first place, shifting him from a gangster with a clown theme to Batman's self-proclaimed ArchEnemy.
