* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': After Trish insults Kilgrave on the air, [[SpeakOfTheDevil Kilgrave calls the station]] to give her a very clear death threat:
-->'''Kilgrave:''' First time caller, long time listener. Trish, I want to applaud your courage. You've always been a hero to the downtrodden. Self-preservation be damned. It's admirable. But my question is, if there really is a man with the abilities you've described, someone who could make anyone, anywhere, do whatever he wanted them to do, seems to me that insulting him would be wildly dangerous. Or, let's just say it, stupid in the extreme. Everyone has feelings, even, um, how did you put it? Sadistic, corrosive men? Are you worried he might, I don't know, make you kill yourself? Or worse? I'll take my answer off the air.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4584735/chapters/10499001 A Different Beginning]]'' Ron taunts Hermione to distract her so that he and Harry can grab some of the library books she's hoarding.
-->'''Ron:''' This your essay, Granger? You shouldn't just leave it out like this. Be a shame if something were to happen to it.

--> '''Professor Ratigan:''' (activating Olivia's wind-up ballerina doll and watching it dance) I would spend many a sleepless night if anything were to befall her. (proceeds to pick up the doll and viciously squeeze it until it breaks)

* When investigating the death of Guy-Andre Kieffer, ([[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy-Andr%C3%A9_Kieffer#Kidnapping_and_probable_murder who had been killed while investigating allegations of child slavery used in the production of cocoa in Africa]]) Carol Off got this kind of advice twice - first from Embassy officials, and then from local officials.
-->'''Off:''' "But if you have to [ask questions], at the very least, don't ask any questions about Guy-André Kieffer. Whatever you do, don't even mention his name." Maybe that's good advice, but wherever I went they would raise his name and in ways that I realized weren't even veiled threats. I would be speaking with somebody in the business and they would say, "You know what happened to the last person who asked these questions? I wonder where he is now?" They would just look at you. You got the message. I quickly realized how incredibly sinister and evil this story really was.

* A swedish PSA about not buying alcohol for your kids had a young teenaged girl casually remark to her parents how she could in theory make their lives miserable unless they got her what she wanted.
* {{William Shatner}} pulls this trope in one of his Priceline commercials by playing the role of a local mob boss, complete with hired muscle, in order to convince his customer of the week to stop wasting his money with other travel agents. He illustrates the point by knocking over a vase.

* In ''VideoGame/StarControlII'', one alien race agrees to help you in your fight if you can eliminate the monsters that forced them to evacuate their homeworld. After you do so, they try to back out of the deal by saying that they will help you once they're done re-colonizing the planet. You can then point out that the creatures are not actually dead; they're just in stasis aboard your ship. The aliens get the hint.
