* In the end of Book Three of ''Fanfic/TheLastSon'', Superman and the rest of Earth's heroes are forced to make a very elaborate plan to take down [[BiggerBad General Zod]]. When Zod loses control of Battlestation Sentrius and Fort Rozz, Superman is still willing to offer him [[LastSecondChance one last chance to turn himself in peacefully]]. Instead, Zod goes into a full-blown rage that forces the heroes to lead him into a trap to [[BroughtDownToNormal cut him off his supply of yellow sun energy to depower him.]] At this point, Superman has had enough and seems willing to finish off Zod himself, but before he can follow through with it, General Lassider of S.H.I.E.L.D. sends out a Kryptonite-loaded nuke towards them (even after the President himself orders him not to). When the other heroes escape, Superman remains behind and has Sentrius open up a PhantomZone singularity. Zod tries to plead with him on the grounds that he's his godfather and one of his people. Superman coldly replies that Zod is ''not'' his godfather or one of his people, and gives him the choice: either he returns to the Phantom Zone to survive, or stays to let the nuke kill him off. Superman then flies off and leaves him to his fate.

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'': The minute Simba corners Scar, the latter pathetically starts begging him for mercy, going to such lengths as pulling the family card and [[NeverMyFault blaming the hyenas for his own actions]]; Simba doesn't buy any of it for a second, but ultimately decides not to kill Scar because [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim he doesn't want to stoop to Scar's level]], instead opting to [[CruelMercy banish him]]. Scar starts to walk away, but then [[AHandfulForAnEye flings burning embers into Simba's eyes]] and attacks him. When he loses the fight and is thrown down to the hyenas (who heard ''everything''), he desperately tries to reason with them and insist he didn't mean what he said, but the hyenas are far less merciful than Scar and attack him en masse.

Sometimes when the heroes defeat the BigBad, he [[GracefulLoser goes down gracefully]]. Sometimes [[GetItOverWith he realizes he's doomed and demands you stop fooling around]]. Sometimes he tries to [[LoadBearingBoss take the heroes with him]]. Sometimes the villain is so {{Badass}} he just [[{{Determinator}} won't stop fighting]] until he's DeaderThanDead. This trope is not about those villains.

* ''Disney/PeterPan'': During the final showdown, Peter steals Captain Hook's sword and threatens him with it. In response, Hook tearfully begs for mercy, [[PleaseIWillDoAnything stating he'll do anything Peter says]]. Peter agrees to let him live, on the grounds that he admits to being a "codfish" and leaves Never Land forever, which Hook does. As soon as Peter's back is turned, however, Hook goes for one last attack, but Peter jumps out of the way, causing Hook to lose his footing and fall into the sea, where the crocodile promptly chases him into the horizon.

* ''Disney/ToyStory3'': [[spoiler: Lotso]] begs Woody and Buzz to help him survive at the trash dump after he had been actively screwing them over for most of the movie, as well as being responsible for them being there in the first place.
