* Roger was a talking dog who appeared in an Al Brodax ''WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}}'' cartoon, where his ability to talk to only Popeye causes a bit of a mess. When he returns in a later cartoon, he makes a promise to not speak to anyone except Popeye and Olive. Running an errand, Roger overhears a gang of thugs planning a robbery. He tells Popeye, who tells the police. When the police asks where Popeye got his information, he says Roger told him. But all Roger will do is bark to the police because he made a promise to not speak to anyone except Popeye and Olive.

* ''{{Vandread}}'''s Hibiki made the casual promise to come to Dita's room. Though hardly a big thing to promise, this haunts him throughout the entire second season.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is full of "promises of a lifetime"... some more successfully fulfilled than others. The most notable case is Naruto's promise to Sakura, to return Sasuke for her. The episode after the mission to do this was actually called "The Promise That Could Not Be Kept." Although, after Sakura's [[NeverLiveItDown infamous]] [[FalseConfession fake love confession]]--which Naruto easily sees right through, [[WhatTheHellHero calls her out on for her dishonesty]], and [[ShipSinking rejects outright]]--he renews his promise not for her anymore, but for [[TrueCompanions his own reasons]]. It's still his most important reason to fight, alongside protecting his friends.
** Another plot relevant promise is Sasuke promising to avenge his family by killing his brother. [[spoiler: Once he succeeds he instantly makes a new one: Destroying Konoha. Obviously that guy needs someone to kill.]]
** Kakashi promised Obito that he would look after Rin. It would seem he failed. [[spoiler: The NotQuiteDead Obito witnesses Kakashi actually killing Rin, contributing to his change into Tobi]]

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': As far as Reynir's great-grandfather was concerned in the prologue, the world outside of Iceland was falling apart due to the Rash. On top of this, he was quitting his job in the coast guard because it had turned into enforcing QuarantineWithExtremePrejudice on any refugee boat that showed up from the rest of the world. Because of this, he promised himself to never tell any future children he may have about what's outside of Iceland and make them understand that that they should never try leaving the country. Over the following ninety years, some people were discovered to be TheImmune to the Rash and Iceland developped a program to enable parents who are not TheImmune to have children who are. In addition, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland turned out to be still around as nations, albeit beaten up by TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. This resulted in Reynir being sheltered into staying in the family farm due to being both the youngest child and the only non-immune one, while his four older siblings each showed up at home twice a year with stories about being abroad. It's from one of them that he found out that the ban on non-immune people travelling outside of Iceland was actually no longer in place, when his parents had told him otherwise. It's safe to assume that the sheltering to which Reynir was subject has something to do with his great-grandfather's promise.
