* In ''AlphaProtocol'', Mike has the option [[spoiler:to leave Surkov to Brayko if discover Surkov betrayed you, leave Brayko alive, and then take the final mission and chase Surkov all the way to the helipad]]. In this case it's an intentional case of sadism, as his death will become infinitely much more painful than if Mike just puts a bullet through his head.

Alice, the villain, will be taunting Bob, the hero for being too cowardly to take her life and Bob's response is along the lines of: "It's not mine to take", as he sheathes his weapon (or hands it to another character). The motive is usually TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou (because the speaker recognizes he/she is not the aforementioned "Only One"). It could be said during a SwordOverHead moment, but not every SwordOverHead moment uses this phrase.

* Although not a death, something similar to this is subverted in ''[=McLintock!=]''. John Wayne's character is thoroughly pissed at another character who almost hung an innocent man, and after giving him a good chewing out, says, "Somebody ought to belt you in the mouth. But I won't. I won't. (beat) The hell I won't" and slugs him.
