* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', [[AntiVillain the Wolkenritter]] are forced via SadisticChoice to break an oath they made to [[TheKidWithTheRemoteControl Hayate]]. Since they come from a Medieval European based culture, this ends up causing them a great deal of grief (especially Signum, who places the most emphasis on her honor and was the one who made the promise in the first place). Note that all the pain that it causes them is self-loathing since the rest of the cast (including Hayate) follows a modern sense of ethics and tend to be more forgiving when it comes to those sort of things.

** PlayedWith with Brienne; she swore two oaths: to keep Cat's children safe and to kill Stannis. By deciding to abandon her vigil to wait for a signal from Sansa, instead deciding to go after Stannis, she basically broke her first vow. Thankfully, she manages to uphold her first oath by rescuing Sansa from Bolton hunters shortly after her escape from Winterfell.

* In the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' book ''Forest of Secrets'', Fireheart promises not to tell anyone about Stonefur and Mistyfoot originally coming from [=ThunderClan=]. He immediately goes back to Bluestar and blurts out the secret for absolutely no reason other than because the plot required it, and then tells Stonefur and Mistyfoot themselves in ''A Dangerous Path'' to save Bluestar's life (he feels bad about telling the secret, regardless).

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons has Blackguards and/or Oathbreakers for Paladins who [FallenHero Fall] and break their vows. Typically this results in the loss of most, if not all, Paladin abilities, instead trading them for sufficiently spooky and evil-ish powers.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Deserters from the Night's Watch are summarily executed as oathbreakers.
** Jaime Lannister is widely reviled for killing the king he swore to protect, and provides the page quote.
** In "Two Swords," Jon Snow must defend himself from accusations of oathbreaking for his unplanned stint as TheMole among the wildlings.
** Ramsay does it constantly. At Moat Cailin and at Winterfell, he kills men who surrendered after he promised them safe conduct home. In the books Roose points out that Ramsay is known as an oathbreaker, meaning their enemies will now fight to the death rather than surrender to them.

-->'''Jaime''': Defend the king. Obey the king. Obey your father. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak. And what if your father despises the king? What if the king massacres the innocent? It's too much. No matter what you do you're forsaking one vow or another.

to:

-->'''Jaime''': So many vows. They make you swear and swear... Defend the king. Obey king, obey the king. Obey king, obey your father. Protect father, protect the innocent. Defend innocent, defend the weak. And weak... But what if your father despises the king? What if the king massacres the innocent? It's too much. No matter what you do you're forsaking one vow or another.

* In the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', breaking oaths is one of [[BigBad Arawn's]] most infamous habits. If this guy makes a deal, he WILL break it. [[ChaoticEvil No matter how little it might cost him to keep it]]. [[StupidEvil Or how much more dangerous NOT keeping it could be]]. And SOMEHOW, there are always more idiots willing to make [[DealWithTheDevil deals]] with him.
