* ''OnePiece'' had Zoro order Mihawk to do this to him after he lost the duel. At first it seems that he complied, but he made sure the wound was non-lethal so they could duel again in the future.
* In ''{{Trigun}}'', Legato uses his MindControl powers to make a group of civilians tie up Meryl and Millie and hold them at gunpoint in view of Vash. This is an attempt to force Vash to break his [[ThouShallNotKill refusal to take life]], as any attempt to non-lethally subdue Legato would give him time to make his mind control victims shoot Meryl and Millie. Vash eventually stops Legato by [[spoiler: reluctantly shooting him in the head, [[HeroicBSOD which leaves him horrified]]]].

** [[TropeNamer The Emperor]], in ''Return of the Jedi'' and more explicitly in ''[[spoiler: VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed]]''. The way he goes on you'd think ''his'' death would make him more powerful than ever before. According to the ExpandedUniverse, it did. Darth Sidious telling Luke to strike him down was more of his attempt to get Luke to give in to his anger and fall to the dark side, knowing that Vader would block the fatal blow, which he did, though in the end Vader [[TakingYouWithMe died killing Sidious]].

* Near the end of the Battle for Gobwin Knob in ErfWorld, Wanda is lying broken and beaten before Prince Ansom and begs him to strike her down, just to let her touch "them" (the Arken Pliers). Ansom is so creeped out by it that he leaves her where she is without attacking again. Things might arguably have gone much smoother for him shortly there-after if he had just done as she asked at first. But then again, maybe not...
