# The villain is [[ItsAllAboutMe so evil]] that they literally [[EvilCannotComprehendGood cannot comprehend why the hero's fighting]] - they don't believe in [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove love]], [[ThePowerOfFriendship loyalty]], [[HonorBeforeReason honor]], and so forth, and don't believe the good guy really does, either.

** Same thing happens with your henchmen in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights: Hordes of the Underdark'' during the final battle with Mephistopheles. Whether or not you have to fight against them depends on your persuasion skill or if one of them is your love interest.
*** The Valsharess makes such an offer to you at the midpoint of the game before it is revealed that Mephistopheles has been the real BigBad all along and was manipulating her into bringing the one who could defeat her (and incidentally free him) right to them.
*** An interesting catch though is that no matter what has happened, no matter how tempting the offer might be, and regardless of your persuasion skill Deekin will always side with you. He's just that awesome.
*** You can also turn this back on Mephistopheles: if you find his true name in the final chapter, you can use it to control him, and one of the optional endings has you ruling the Hells together.

** The one thing they did right in the sequel is that you can actually accept the offers of all the feuding factions. Although how much power you receive under new regimes is debatable.

** In something of an inversion, near the end of ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', Malak's latest [[TheDragon Dragon]] offers to join with you to crush both Malak and the Republic.
*** The variation to the standard theme is that the Dragon offers to become ''your'' Dragon if you turn against the Republic (generally, the We Can Rule Together offer suggests you'll be the Dragon or at best that you'd be equals). The offer ''is'' genuinely meant, and accepting it leads to path to the Dark Side Ending.

Republic, you're free to accept and doing so locks you into the darkside ending.

The offer ''is'' genuinely meant, and accepting it leads to path to the Dark Side Ending.They also assure you than once they become strong enough they will kill you, as a good Sith should. Nice it's all planned out, huh?



** In ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', this option comes up at the end of the first act of the Imperial Agent storyline, in which [[spoiler:Darth Jadus]] gives you the choice of either working for him or be forced into a SadisticChoice in which you must either try and stop either him or his doomsday weapon. This does actually impact the story somewhat, but not too heavily since [[spoiler:Jadus]] is all about working in the shadows.

The Green King King, Nagare Hisui, makes this offer to TheMole Shiro, [[spoiler: the Silver King]], right after the latter has formed an alliance with the other Clans to defeat the former. Shiro turns him down, because his ideas sound a bit too familiar to Shiro, considering his backstory.
