* 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.

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.

Compare TalkingTheMonsterToDeath, where the hero has to spend some time speechifying first and the effect is much less corny, 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.

The villain is merely ''told'' to stop his evil scheme, and he does. Usually, this is a way to [[AnAesop teach the audience a lesson]] about the importance of communication, and sometimes it stands as a testament to the hero's {{badass}}ery, but just as often it's PlayedForLaughs due to the sheer unlikeliness of the idea.

* On ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'', the titular wizard of "The Mefirst Wizard" is a selfish wizard who doesn't know how to take turns and therefore takes over whatever you're trying to play on and won't let anyone else have a turn. He can be banished, however, with the rhyme "Mefirst, Mefirst, go away. That's not the way friends play." Though it has to be said two words at time between those that are there, taking turns.

* ''StarControl II: The Ur-Quan Masters'': 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.
