* In [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Thud!]], two trolls working for a mob boss threaten Vimes. When Vimes meets with their boss, he claims he hadn't told them to make threats, and indicates a box. The narration is quick to point out wouldn't fit an ''intact'' troll. And then to cement what happened, the boss asks Vimes if he could use some gravel.

* This is how Creator/CoreDesign ended up falling apart; after they botched ''VideoGame/TombRaiderAngelOfDarkness'' (which was released alongside ''Film/TombRaider: The Cradle of Life'' and took that film with it), Creator/EidosInteractive, tired of Core Design's inability to meet deadlines or lower ambitions, took the ''Franchise/TombRaider'' franchise out of Core Design's hands. Without their prime cash cow, Core Design [[CreatorKiller died a slow death]].

** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'', Petrine orders her men to carry off the minor boss Dakova to what is presumably his execution, if the player fails to kill him before the chapter ends. If you do kill him, Petrine sends his subordinate to his doom instead.
** Narshen in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade]]'' threatens to do this to one of his underlings named Slater. The guy is so unsettled by the death threat that he is easily defeated.

* ''Anime/{{Yu Gi Oh}}'' Season 3 has [[spoiler:Noah]] pull this one on [[spoiler: The Big 5]] when [[spoiler:they lie about giving Tristan's body back and try to take the other bodies by force.]] Given how much that [[spoiler: Noah]] hates cheaters, it's no surprise that he stepped in. Although, he may just have stopped this from happening solely because he believes that it makes him look bad and that he doesn't really care about cheaters otherwise. It really doesn't help that [[spoiler: The Big 5 lost all but one duel, and even still technically lost the one time they defeated an opponent.]] You have failed, indeed.

* ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' Opal Koboi says this word for word during the climax of ''The Opal Deception''. [[spoiler: It's subverted, though- she's actually saving their lives by activating their (primitive) escape pods to jettison them away from Opal's exploding ship. The full line is "I advise you to strap in. You have failed me. Enjoy prison."]]

** Subverted in the new EU novel ''Literature/StarWarsTarkin'', when Vader tells a Stormtrooper that he has failed for the last time, but ''doesn't'' kill him. Immediately afterward, Sergeant Crest captures the warehouse of a crime lord and Vader promotes him. It's implied that for the rest of his life, Lieutenant Crest never fails Vader again, so it really was "for the last time."
