Compare TalkingTheMonsterToDeath, where the hero has to put some more significant, speechifying effort into breaking through the villain's personal JerkJustifications; ShamingTheMob where it is done to a large group; and VerbalJudo where words are used to calm a conflict that wasn't necessarily going to get physical anyway. Contrast UnhandThemVillain where the villain obeys the hero's ExactWords in a way not intended.

* A very good example in ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', this is one of the options you have to stop the BigBad. Though to do this your character must be intelligent enough, persuasive enough and they must have experienced a certain situation to use it as an argument against the enemy.

[[{{Anticlimax}} The villain concedes]]. He powers down the machine and turns himself in. Battle over. Everyone lives HappilyEverAfter. If done well, it may establish the speaker as someone with greater authority than other characters (e.g., a parent, teacher, police officer), or that there are hidden factors only the character can indicate to makes the villain quit, or simply that the villain [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath still has enough of a conscience]] [[ShamingTheMob to be shamed into doing the right thing]]. However, if handled poorly (which is usually the case) the viewer may left thinking, "[[WorstWhateverEver Worst!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Anti-Climax!][[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Ever!]]"

* One of the benefits of having an high Presence hero character in ''TabletopGame/{{Champions}}'' is the ability cow lesser bad guys through sheer force of charisma, personal magnetism, reputation, or whatever. Some of the super villains may also be impressive enough to do this to ''the heroes'', if said heroes haven't invested any points in Presence.

* In the finale of ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'', the pirates have just bested the constables, when the policemen ask the pirates to yield in the name of Queen Victoria. [[HonorBeforeReason Since disobeying the queen is unthinkable]], the pirates promptly surrender.

* In ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnpTcrtsN3U Dora the finale of ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'', Explorer: The Search for the pirates have Infinity Orb]]'', used as the money line at the end. (Unfortunately, this isn't real, it's just bested a fake trailer, albeit a really well done one, with Creator/ArielWinter as WesternAnimation/{{Dora|TheExplorer}}.)
** This fake trailer led to
the constables, when creation of a mini-series, with part one [[http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6874662/dora-the-explorer-and-the-destiny-medallion-part-1 here]], part two [[http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6874663/dora-the-explorer-and-the-destiny-medallion-part-2 here]], and [[http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6874664/dora-the-explorer-and-the-destiny-medallion-part-3 part three.]]
* ''Literature/TheSwordOfGood'' has [[spoiler:an inversion, where
the policemen ask villain gets the pirates hero to yield betray his allies]] and join him just by asking. Note that in this case it's helped by the name of Queen Victoria. [[HonorBeforeReason Since disobeying fact that [[spoiler: the queen "[[DesignatedVillain villain]]" is unthinkable]], entirely rational and in accord with fact, and the pirates promptly surrender.hero comes to the conclusion on his own that the "villain" isn't actually evil and in fact supports equality, while the hero's allies [[DesignatedHero aren't anything close to good]], but in fact care nothing for the less fortunate and are fighting the war solely to consolidate their own power, even though it wouldn't cost the WhiteMage any effort to use his magic to heal the dying or shield people from harm to begin with]].This is what clues the hero in to the fact that [[spoiler: he was just an UnwittingPawn,]] a realization which lets him tap into the Sword of Good's true power and [[spoiler: smite the real BigBad -- [[WrongSideAllAlong his own allies]]]]. Of course, from [[spoiler:the [[DarkIsNotEvil Lord of Dark]]]]'s point of view, it's played straight.
