* ''ChronoCrusade'' has several promises that the main characters take very seriously. The first is that [[spoiler:[[PosthumousCharacter Mary Magdalene]]]] made Chrono promise to "live", which is implied to be the only reason he [[spoiler:didn't commit suicide after her death]]. Also, the manga version shows Joshua and Rosette promise as children to [[spoiler:"grow-up together"--remembering his promise is what gives Joshua the strength to reject Chrono's horns]]. Also, when Rosette made [[DealWithTheDevil her contract with Chrono]], Chrono seems to have promised ''himself'' that he would protect her, even going to the point of saying he promised to "never make her cry" in the manga. When he's forced to break this promise at one point, he becomes [[UnstoppableRage really pissed]].

* In ASongOfIceAndFire Eddard Stark promised something ''very'' important to his dying sister Lyanna. The contents of the promise are still [[WildMassGuessing unknown]].
* In AndreNorton's ''Literature/{{Catseye}}'', Tikil's culture turns heavily on the given word.
* In AndreNorton's ''Storm Over Literature/{{Warlock}}'', the Throg tells Shann he will be tortured to death slowly if he does not send the message they want. He doesn't, though he does it cryptically. Shann is strapped to a frame for it, and the Throg tells him they will leave him as a warning. Then, they come under attack. The Throg hesitates; Shann thinks it is thinking about whether to bring him with them, which will be necessary to carry out its promise.
