* ''WesternAnimation/{{KulipariAnArmyOfFrogs}}'': The heroic frogs are forced to surrender and accept exile from their homeland [[spoiler: After taking down the Veil that hid them on the orders of the Rainbow Serpent. This works out very well for them, as Darrel leads them to a new homeland where they can live in peace, while the Scorpion army destroys itself in a vain attempt to control all the water.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising]] has this as a valid tactic for completing the normal campaign version of '''Two-Week Test.''' You simply do nothing except end your turn. Doing this showcases the AI's ability to screw itself over, but your rank will suck. The Hard Campaign averts this by giving you pre-deployed units.

* In ''AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Bumi chooses to surrender to the Fire Nation and allow himself to be imprisoned, using Neutral Jing (doing nothing, as opposed to Positive Jing [fighting] or Negative Jing [running away]) because he knows that he can't defeat the Fire Nation at that point. When an eclipse [[DePower De-powers]] the Fire Nation, though, [[CurbStompBattle all bets are off]].

** One of the easier ways to win the 15-minute version of the MultiMookMelee (in which the goal is simply to survive 15 minutes) is to just run away from all of your opponents. The AI of the mooks is dependent on the number that have fallen, so running away from them as much as you can results in trying to survive against absurdly weak foes. The only thing keeping this from being a [[ZeroEffortBoss Zero-Effort Challenge]] is that the AI always has an element of TooDumbToLive - eventually, those early mooks will end up jumping off the level and bringing in more competent opponents to replace them.

* Played with in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' in Yuma and Nash's face-off: the Barian activated a card to decide the duel's outcome in a one-on-one battle between their ace monsters. Both duelists went on the offensive, only for Yuma to stop halfway and cancel his attack. Nash thought his former friend had a combo in mind, but Yuma [[Heartwarming/YuGiOhZexal merely didn't want to lose his friend]]. Unknowingly to him, had he resumed his attack, he'd have lost the duel, and his noble gesture won him the game due to a loophole.

* Done in the ''Manga/YuGiOh5Ds'' manga when Yuusei takes a test to gain the Stardust Spark Dragon. He starts out by riding at it full force to attack it head on. But then remembers some earlier advice Akiza had told him and quickly snaps out of it. He then notices that the Stardust Spark Dragon is crying and sees through its memories of previous duelers who attempted to acquire it, making the mistake he nearly did. Yuusei then drops his speed and lets the Stardust Spark Dragon attack him. Which allows him to be seen as worthy of wielding it and gain its card.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'', during the InevitableTournament, you can get [[spoiler:Alice's wedding dress from Dan]] during Fei's boss fight with him by constantly defending and healing instead of attacking. You can attack him too, but then [[LostForever you won't get the item.]]

* In ''VideoGame/StarControl II'', you encounter a lone Shofixti pilot named Tanaka who is hellbent on trying to destroy your vessel in revenge for the loss of his entire species, as he believes you to be an Ur-Quan starship. The proper course of action is to converse with him, use the various insults the game offers, and then warp out of the fight to repeat the cycle until it dawns on him that Ur-Quan don't insult opponents that way, so you're actually trustworthy. If you screw up and kill him in the fight (which is even possible on accident, as his ship is badly damaged and could careen into a planet if things go south), his brother Katana appears to let you try again. Kill ''Katana'' and the Shofixti are LostForever as a recruitable race.

* An amusing tactic given in the official guide for part of the BonusBoss fight against Sephiroth in ''Videogame/KingdomHearts'' reads as follows: "You can hurt him now, so dodge the meteors".

* This is pretty much how Paul wins ends battles in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone''. Since he's both an ActualPacifist and [[NighInvulnerable invulnerable]], he just stands there or walks along and lets people pound on him until they give up, get distracted, or get captured by one of the others.
