* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnpTcrtsN3U Dora the Explorer: The Search for the Infinity Orb]]'', used as the money line at the end. (Unfortunately, this isn't real, it's just a fake trailer, albeit a really well done one, with Creator/ArielWinter as WesternAnimation/{{Dora|TheExplorer}}.)

* In the first season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', there wasn't any actual violence in the show. Everyone had their powers, but there was no beating people up. To top it off, every villain [[WellIntentionedExtremist had good intentions.]]. This being said, you would see a scene where Superman would throw the giant metal gate to the villain's lair completely aside, but then he would talk to the villain of the week and convince him to try a different, less-villainous solution. In those few cases where it wasn't a well-intentioned extremist, they just dismantled the plan and left, but not before giving the villain a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Note that this was only true in the first season. After that, most baddies were [[CardCarryingVillain Card Carrying Villains.]] The Legion of Doom wouldn't have known a good intention if it bit them in the shin.

* ''VideoGame/StarControlIITheUrQuanMasters'': The titular Ur-Quan generally attack and kill anyone who is not either an Ur-Quan, or a 'Battle Thrall' in their service, owing to a huge (and fairly well-justified) sense of paranoia regarding any sentient species other than their own race. However, one of the tenets of their shared philosophy involves the Question; if one of their enemies does ask in the proper way, the Ur-Quan captain has a moral duty to stop firing and explain the Ur-Quan's history and the reason why it has them killing and/or enslaving every sentient race in the universe. (Interestingly, once you hear it, they're actually pretty damn well justified overall.) However, once they've finished explaining it, they'll get right back to shooting at you.

* A staple for ''Series/DoctorWho''[='=]s Eleventh Doctor. He handles the Atraxi by asking them to look him up in a database and scares off an entire intergalactic fleet by challenging either race to attack him first. Do note, he certainly earns his influence in-between boasts.

* A staple for ''Series/DoctorWho''[='=]s ''Series/DoctorWho'' has a variation: the Doctor tells his foes ''exactly'' who he is and asks if they ''really'' want to make an enemy of him. His reputation is such that this sometimes makes the evil monster back off without a further fight rather than risk the Doctor's wrath. The Eleventh Doctor.Doctor was particularly fond of this tactic. He handles the Atraxi by asking them to look him up in a database and scares off an entire intergalactic fleet by challenging either race to attack him first. Do note, he certainly earns his influence in-between boasts.

* Done in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' when a Godzilla-like monster rampages in Townsville. Blossom believes in strategy to take it down while Buttercup believes in brute force. Both tactics fail and Bubbles, getting fed up with her sisters' bickering, just flies to the monster and politely asks it to stop. ''It works'' (though more than likely the monster was getting tired of Blossom's and Buttercup's arguing as well)

* In one episode of Series/TheMiddle, the Glossner siblings sneak into the house. After Sue and Brick try several tricks to get them out, which [[FinaglesLaw backfire hilariously]], Sue asks Derrick Glossner to leave and take the others with him. He does so [[spoiler:because he has a crush on her]].

** You can do this with a high enough Barter skill (in both cases you must have them maxed out). You can
either convince him that he won't be able to hold on the already conquered territory if he tries to occupy new territory with his weakened army, or lecture him about economics to show that his logistics are not good enough to invade. Seriously.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' as Slappy Squirrel expresses her frustration with modern cartoons by showing a GreenAesop cartoon as an example where a deer pleads with a bear to stop cutting down trees in the forest. He promptly does and apologizes saying he didn't know what he was doing was wrong.
