--->You impress me, Kryptonian. More, your valor has touched my heart. Oh yes, there is still some small part of me that knows mercy. I will end your pain... with something special I've been saving for just this occasion. ''(Darkseid draws a Kryptonite knife)'' I'm going to carve out your heart and put it on a pike in my throne room.

* In [[WhamEpisode Chapter 23]] of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', a girl named Belladonna Tyrian raids the Gringy City Power Plant, and when she encounters two guards, she kills one, but the other pleads for his life [[IHaveAFamily because of his family.]] She knocks him out and leaves him stuffed in a closet with a message so he can be found.

** [[spoiler: After bumping Lily and her family to top of Voldemort's hit list, Severus Snape begged him to spare her (though ''not'' James, whom he hated, or Harry, who was Voldemort's primary target and had no chance of being spared), in part due to his unrequited love for her. It almost worked; Voldemort did offer Lily the chance to step aside, but since she insisted on protecting Harry, he ended up killing her anyway. When Dumbledore found out about this he ''royally ripped Snape a new one'' for apparently thinking he could pull some manner of ComfortingTheWidow on Lily after being complicit in the deaths of her husband and child. On the other hand, the fact that she had a choice is what made the protective magic work that shielded Harry from Voldemort after her death]].

* UrExample: In ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', when Odysseus gives his name to the Cyclops as "Nobody", the Cyclops says that he will eat "Noman" last out of thanks for giving him the wine. (It may or may not have been the giant's sick idea of a joke.) This also doubles as a [[KickTheDog kick the dog moment]] to make him evil enough that the audience can enjoy him getting brutally blinded later. Capturing, enslaving and killing intruders wouldn't make him particularly bad in the eyes of Homer's audience (eating them is a bit over the top, though). Deliberately insulting the holy laws of hospitality by expressly making this Odysseus' "guest gift" is sacrilege though, and that's a completely different matter.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E16TheWatersOfMars "The Waters of Mars"]], The Doctor meets a woman in 2059 whom he knows is critically important to history. She reveals that the reason she's in space is because she was spared by a Dalek [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth during their invasion of Earth fifty years earlier]]. She never knew why, but The Doctor knows that it's because of her importance to the future; she's a "fixed point in time", and even the Daleks know better than to mess with those.
