* In the ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'' episode "Mr. and Mrs. Mxyzptlk", Mxyzptlk tries to force Supergirl to marry him. To stop him, she sets the Fortress of Solitude to self-destruct, pointing out it would be enough to kill her. Since he's not allowed to use his powers to stop someone from killing themselves, he panics and begs her to shut it off. She gives him the deactivation code and he enters it. Since it was in Kryptonian script, he found out too late that it was "KLTPZYXM", his name backwards, banishing him back to the Fifth Dimension.

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. See the above picture. "Back off or this nigger gets it!" What makes this especially funny and awesome is that when Bart takes himself hostage, the townspeople were about to ''lynch'' him. Moments later, they are suddenly saying things like "Won't someone help that poor man?".

* Also in ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4: VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. The level "The Sins of the Father" concerns the protagonists tracking down the [[TheDragon son of]] the BigBad, and they manage to corner him on the roof of a building, shouting at him to drop his weapon and come quietly. If you wait around long enough, or move forward to restrain him as Captain Price tells you, he simply [[AteHisGun puts his weapon up to his chin and blow his brains out]] (telling you [[BilingualBonus in unsubtitled Russian]] that "you will all die soon anyway" if you wait around).
* Just like in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', Will threatens to kill himself in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' unless Barbossa lets Elizabeth (plus Sora, Donald, and Goofy) go free. [[spoiler: Unlike in the film, this backfires thanks to Pete's presence, and everyone else is left [[BoundAndGagged tied up]] on the ''Interceptor'']].

* A twist on this occurs in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' episode 34. After realizing that the Freedom's pilot has a ThouShaltNotKill policy, Shinn Asuka exploits it in their next battle by deliberately putting himself in situations where his attacks would become fatal, which forces Kira to check his swings.

## The protagonist is dealing with [[EvenEvilHasStandards a principled antagonist]] who just doesn't want any casualties. If not, it's just plain funny.

* A variation is tried in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. The Blue Spirit and Aang were trying to escape a Fire Nation base but where surrounded and about to be killed. The Fire Nation commander, Admiral Zhao, warned his soldiers that they needed Aang alive...and the Blue Spirit immediately put his swords at Aang's neck, even though he needs Aang alive too. At first it looked it worked and Aang and the Blue Spirit left the base, but as soon as Zhao's elite archer were in position the Blue Spirit got an arrow in face for the trouble (luckily, Aang can run ''really'' fast and saved both).

* Kaiba in ''Anime/YuGiOh''. But it's subverted in a way. [[KnightTemplar The Pharaoh]] doesn't care! He would have gone ahead and knocked Kaiba off of the rooftop if not for Yugi's intervention. The fact that the Pharaoh is willing to go so far to win promptly puts Yugi in a HeroicBSOD.

* On ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', Shaw's prepared to kill herself to avoid hurting Root when Root tells her if she actually does it, she'll kill herself too, turning the situation into an impromptu SuicidePact until Shaw stands down.
