* After the climatic FinalBattle at the end of ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', [[spoiler:The BigBad Ernst Stavro Blofeld attempts invoking this to see if Film/JamesBond will fall for the bait and become just as twisted and monstrous as himself. But 007, having seen enough, simply states [[NotWorthKilling that he's "out of bullets" and tosses his gun away]] so Blofeld can be arrested. This left Blofeld [[EvilCannotComprehendGood confused]] at 007's rationale to spare him despite their CainAndAbel relationship, and it also escapes his mind in the fact that while Bond is capable of getting his revenge, [[EveryoneHasStandards even he's unwilling to cross certain moral lines]], and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters sinking to Blofeld's level won't do much.]]]]

* In the season 3 finale of ''Series/TheFlash2014'', the BigBad Savitar [[spoiler:is about to be erased from the timeline due to Iris surviving]]. He threatens to kill everyone Barry loves before this happens. In anger, Barry runs up to him, phases through his armor, and pushes Savitar out, taking over the armor (its glow switches from blue to red). He easily bests the now unarmored Savitar and prepares to finish him off with one of the armor's blades. Savitar realizes that if that happens, then Barry killing him in anger will result in [[spoiler:Barry becoming Savitar in the future]] anyway. Unfortunately for him, he blurts it out and goads Barry to do it, causing Barry to realize what's happening. Instead, he vibrates the armor to pieces and knocks Savitar out. [[spoiler:Savitar tries to rush Barry from the back, but Iris finishes him off with a gun]].

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'':
** Lucius the Eternal, the Champion of Slaanesh, is blessed with a peculiar form of reincarnation: anytime he's killed by an enemy who feels satisfaction for the deed (and killing a Champion of Chaos is quite a bragworthy feat, let alone ''the'' Chosen of a Dark God), he slowly turns into Lucius until Lucius is reborn, the enemy just another screaming face in his armor.
** Khorne the Blood God is strengthened by the rage felt by sentient beings (the three others function similarly, being the embodiments of rage, desire, hope and despair (and possibly love) respectively), be they devoted to serving ''or'' fighting him. It's one of the main reasons Chaos is so hard to get rid of and that turning on your own comrades in the middle of a battle can actually increase yuor worth in the eyes of the Ruinous Powers.
--> Khorne cares not from where the blood flows, only that it flows.

*** Especially since ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' is partially based '''on''' ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'', which involves the Joker trying to drive Commissioner Gordon to do this. [[spoiler: He fails in both stories.]]

* In ''{{Trigun}}'', Legato Bluesummers tries to goad Vash the Stampede into killing him. Vash is a TechnicalPacifist who believes "no one has the right to take the life of another"; Legato knows that forcing Vash to betray his beliefs and kill him is the single most abhorrent thing he can do to Vash. In this case, it's more of a DespairGambit than trying to push Vash off the slippery slope.

* [[TropeNamers Named]] for Palpatine doing this a lot, including saying the exact trope name, to Luke in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Given he had years to work on Anakin and mere minutes with Luke, he must have been damn good to almost succeed too. In fact, he ''would'' have succeeded, if he had shut his mouth [[VillainBall for just five minutes]]. It's worth noting that this is explicitly not a ThanatosGambit; the real plan is to get Luke to [[SelfMadeOrphan kill Vader]], giving TheEmperor a fresh, young apprentice rather than a crippled (and [[BastardUnderstudy dangerously ambitious]]) [[TheDragon Dragon]].

* Invoked in a way similar to ''[=Se7en=]'' in ''[[NoBudget Jim Haggerty's The Slasher]]'', wherein the titular slasher tries to goad the officer hunting him into executing him once caught. [[spoiler:The detective refuses, leading the slasher to mock him mercilessly about how he'll get off easy with a good lawyer. Before his trial, however, the detective [[DoWithHimAsYouWill organizes a group of the families of the slasher's victims to have their way with him instead]].]]
