** In the ''{{Pokemon}}'' version, it's the Kecleon shopkeepers themselves that swarm the characters if you shoplift. Ironically, this is the only way to recruit one to your team. Said Kecleon also have a recruit rate of ''negative'' 33.9%, thus to even have the tiniest chance of recruiting them you need to be at least Level 90 if not 100, the level cap, due to the fact that the recruitment rates are highest at those levels, and be equipped with the Friend Bow. Even with the bonuses, the chance is 0.1%, as the highest bonus to recruit rate you can achieve is 34%. In every game, the Kecleon are close to the level cap, and from ''Explorers'' onward, possess stats so high that your Pokemon won't stand a chance even at the level cap if you haven't used tons of stat boosting items. In ''Gates To Infinity'', they've wised up further and will spawn around the staircase, giving anyone who tries to escape with a Pure Seed a nasty surprise. [[OhCrap Also you can't defeat them.]]

** That said, the "Castle Doctrine Laws" does vary from jurisdiction. Some states require the owner to first give notice to the fact that they are armed or at the very least, cannot shoot the robber in the back. Others are looser, with Stand Your Ground laws that allow for the use of force if there is someone univited on your property (though you can't invite them, then rescind the invitation). In more pro-gun control areas, they might put further restrictions on the owner, such as making this only permissible if they cannot reasonably flee the robber. Regardless, almost all states take a dimmer view if you fire warning shots, which can make it harder to prove self defense, and can be dangerous in and of themselves. It's also uncommon for the thief to be unarmed for any number of reasons ("Clean Guns", or guns with no criminal history are hard to come by for criminals and the gun will either have to be dirty (used in another crime... and if they arrest you you can be charged with that crime), stolen, or forged (very expensive), or they might be the HonestCrook (or on parole and doesn't want to be further charged with weapons possesion) who doesn't want to kill anyone, but not above saying that they have a weapon).

** In ''Space Quest IV'' trying to leave a software store without paying for an item will have the store's anti-shoplifting device fatally zap you. There's a change machine in the same game that will also defend itself with lethal force if you try and force it open.



* In ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestIIVohaulsRevenge'', Roger Wilco orders a whistle via mail required to solve a later puzzle. In both ''VideoGame/{{Space Quest III|The Pirates of Pestulon}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Space Quest V|The Next Mutation}}'', the owners of the mail-order company dispatch Terminator-like androids to collect the [[LoanShark huge debt incurred from the interest]] or kill him (but mostly [[EverythingTryingToKillYou kill him]]). What's strange about this is that the whistle is advertised as being free (''and'' that ordering it in the first place is optional!). In ''Space Quest IV'' trying to leave a software store without paying for an item will have the store's anti-shoplifting device fatally zap you. There's a change machine in the same game that will also defend itself with lethal force if you try and force it open.

* The lion shopkeeper of ''VideoGame/FeralFury'' has a ton of HP and an assault rifle. Try to kill him and he will ruin you. Still goes down like a lead zeppelin when shot with the [[{{BFG}}Proton Cannon]] though. Averted with the Red Panda merchant, who is a One-Hit-Point Wonder and can be summarily murdered for a blue card if you don't like what he has to trade. Both will never be seen again in the run if you do this.

* ''SaintsRow'' had the First Born Loans company. [[SchmuckBait Go ahead, take out a loan]]. But pay them back on time. If you didn't, they'd send two guys in a car with a knife. Then two guys with pistols. Then four with shotguns, etc. up to the helicopter with two assault rifle gunners (which would not stop spawning until you paid off the loan).
** ''Saints Row 2'' allows you to rob stores by holding a gun to the cashier and leading him or her to the safe with their money. After they do this, or if you take your gun off them for too long, the alarm sounds and you're immediately given 3 stars of police notoriety.
** ''SaintsRowTheThird'' also let you rob stores; it subverted this trope, however, due to the fact that you could rob stores you own (giving you notoriety), only to walk outside and reenter the store (which removes all notoriety because you own it.) But really, you're given so much money you'd never have to do this (other than just to be a dick, or for that one assassination where it's required to lure out the target).
