* Heroic example in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'': During the Big P Pokémon Race, Iris is riding on Ash's Charizard, and after spotting two snipers in wait at the entrance of the canyon as the competitors approach, they dive in to attack them, with Charizard grabbing one of them and flying away. When the thug begins to yell to be let go, Iris looks down below and seeing a river, quickly says: "You heard him, let him go!", and Charizard nonchalantly drops him.

* ''Fanfic/FateLongNight'': When the Mother's Champion beats up Shinji and then starts strangling him, Sakura asks him to let him go, but it doesn't work until she uses a Command Spell, at which point he complies by hurling Shinji into a wall hard enough to crack it. Sakura notes she should have worded that more specifically.

* Happens twice in the GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan'' (the 2000 series). The first time this trope is played completely straight; Action Man demands Professor Gangrene lets Rikkie go while the former threatens to throw the later out of the airship. Gangrene is more than happy to comply with this request. The second time, when Quake threatens to throw Fidget into a lava pit, Action Man [[GenreSavvy is more carefull with his choice of words]] and specifically demands he puts her down safely on the ground. Not that it stops Quake from throwing her into the pit anyway.

* Combined with LiteralGenie, the ''{{GURPS}}'' manual has a spell to animate a machine or vehicle, but warns you it takes you commands literally. Saying "Drop me off there." to an animated helicopter is specifically mentioned.
