* Done surprisingly seriously in ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' when Emperor Grumm put Piggy in a WithUsOrAgainstUs situation by forcing him to go into a pit of suffering for a day before giving his decision. Piggy tried to avoid it by immediately declaring he sided with Grumm, but Grumm ''still'' demanded he go into the pit under threat of being disintegrated.

* In ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'', the Éowyn scene is parodied as the players (especially Aragorn) are more than happy to welcome her to the party, but the DM [[{{Railroading}} insists otherwise]]. He eventually just retcons the scene by explaining that Éowyn was just some crazy chick. [[spoiler:She later shows up in the FinalBattle, to the confusion of many.]]

He eventually scripted]] to act like he said no, so he proceeds to have her react to what he '''wants''' Aragorn to say rather than what his player is '''actually''' saying, which just retcons makes her look schizophrenic. Eventually they walk off while she's in the scene by explaining that Éowyn was just some crazy chick.middle of arguing with herself, calling her insane.

* In a ''NewsRadio'' episode, Matthew asks Dave if he's being fired, and after Dave says no, Matthew doesn't hear it that way. As he begins to leave, he realizes his mistake and asks, "Were you just going to let me leave?" Dave nods mischievously, having fully expected him to not listen (he is the Spaz, after all).

* On the flip side, one of the oldest rules of salesmanship is "don't sell past the close" because you risk irritating the customers into changing their minds.
