** The Master does this a lot - until it's inverted beautifully in "The End of Time", when the Doctor asks the Master to join him, even paraphrasing the dialogue from "Colony In Space". "You don't need to own the universe, just see it." The Master seems tempted, then slingshots back to evil...then saves the Doctor from Rassilon at the last minute.
** Missy [[spoiler: (the Mistress)]] spends series 8 setting up another one of these, just to prove that she and the Doctor [[NotSoDifferent aren't so different]]. Having assembled an army of zombie Cybermen, she hands total control of them to the Doctor, daring him to use them against the Daleks and all his other enemies.

This offer can be accepted, as a result of which the Phantom Thieves end up in control of the city at the expense of remaining under Yaldabaoth's thumb.]]

* ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'': Right before the final battle, Discord offers Pinkie Pie a chance to marry him and become his queen. To sweeten the pot, he offers to bring her lost friend Minty back.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': Dagoth Ur wants to become friends with Nerevar again. He constantly makes offers for the Nerevarine to join his side, even until the final battle. The player can't choose to side with Dagoth Ur, since to side with Dagoth Ur is to go against and piss off Azura, as well as a few other Daedra Lords that support the Dunmer.

Never mind that [[spoiler:the Tribunal, especially Almalexia (who had a thing going with the hermaphrodite Vivec as well) apparently betrayed Nerevar in the first place, not Dagoth Ur]]. Even then, she ends up [[spoiler:killing Sotha Sil and trying to kill the Nerevarine for some odd reason]].
*** It's not so odd: at that point she's [[spoiler: gone completely off the deep end and has hatched an insane plot to kill the other two in the Tribunal and make you out to be a martyr for her cause]].

* In ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'', the BigBad, [[spoiler:Khaos]], plans on decomposing the world and reconstructing it to a certain time in the past, essentially allowing time travel and timeline alteration. He offers to use this power to undo Reviel's massacres so he can restart his life with a clean slate and to undo Luna's transformation into a vampire. They both refuse and decide that it's better to live with their mistakes and deal with their obstacles in the present, since using this power means everything they've ever been through would be for nothing.

# The villain takes an interest in the hero either as a WorthyOpponent, sees them as NotSoDifferent, or may perhaps even have a VillainousCrush on them. In the first two cases, the villain sees a potential strong ally, in the last case it may be EvenEvilHasLovedOnes.

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestBuilders'' takes place in an alternate continuity where the hero from the original ''Dragon Quest'' accepted the Dragonlord's offer, only to be betrayed by the foul fiend and the realm plunged into a dark age. [[spoiler:Near the end of the game, it's revealed that he made good on the letter of his offer, with the fallen hero granted dominion over a small castle titled "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Half the World]]". When you eventually confront the Dragonlord, he gives you the same offer. If you accept, he'll bestow upon you dominion over a similarly tiny "half" of the world: your tomb!]]
