* In ''{{Gate 7}}'', Hana is [[IWillWaitForYou waiting for someone who has not been revealed yet]] and once they are reunited, they will keep their promise. * In ''OnePiece'', a band of pirates left a baby whale they adopted named Laboon at the beginning of the Grand Line, promising to return after they've made the round-world voyage. Unfortunately, those pirates were wiped out, half becoming ill and having to leave the ship to save the rest, and those that remained were wiped out in a battle. Of those pirates, only Brook remains, having been brought [[CameBackWrong back to life as a skeleton]] by his Devil Fruit. And now he has promised to his dead crewmates to deliver the final message of the Rumbar Pirates to Laboon, even after fifty years.

* In ''{{Solatorobo}}'', Elh promises Red a billion rings if he helps to complete the Rite of Forfeit. [[spoiler:Of course, Elh actually doesn't ''have'' a billion rings and, if the Rite had gone [[HumanSacrifice as it usually did]], Red wouldn't have needed them anyway. Red survived, however, and instead of being angry, he just [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming invited Elh to join his team]] - [[IWasJustPassingThrough ostensibly to work off that debt]], of course, but [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther nobody was fooled]].]]
