* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode, "Chicken, He Clucked." A man hates chickens so much that he wants to make a deal with a demon to get rid of them. Embarassed by such a silly request for a soul, the demon gives him the power to send anything away as a compromise. Soon, every chicken on Earth is sent to another dimension and (after annoying the man) the Ghostbusters. The demon agrees to help the Ghostbusters, though, because his colleagues found out about the deal and won't stop mocking him. The demon reveals a loophole that the Ghostbusters manage to exploit to cancel the deal.
** Happens by accident in "The Devil to Pay" to Ray and Winston, who competed in a questionable game show. After winning, they unknowingly sign a contract (with red ink pens) that they thought was an agreement to be contestants in the host's premiere game show, "Race the Devil" and for a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip for four to Tahiti. Egon realizes too late that the two had actually signed away their souls to the demon host to compete in his game show, where they must play for their lives and souls. Managing to win, Peter threatens the host to give them the trip after winning or face severe physical pain, which the demon host had no choice but to grant.
* A literal example from the fourth season of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', where Slade makes a deal with [[{{Satan}} Trigon]] to help him make sure Raven fulfills the prophecy of [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the end of the world]] in exchange for Trigon giving him his life back. [[spoiler: Trigon does not keep his word, which results in Slade calling a truce with the Titans until he can take what he was promised by force.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', Monkey Fist makes a deal with a kung fu god called Yono in order to take Ron's baby sister. When he fails, Yono has him turned to stone.
* Spoofed on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' in "The Devil and Homer Simpson", where Homer sells his soul for a doughnut, but gets it back through ThePowerOfLove; when he married Marge, he promised to be hers, body and soul, forever. Earlier in the episode, he manages to find a loophole:
--> '''Homer''': "Hey, wait. If I don't finish this last bite, you don't get my soul, do you?"
--> '''Devil Flanders''': "Well...technically no, but -"
--> '''Homer''': "I'm smarter than the Devil! I'm smarter than the Dev-"
-->'''Devel Flanders''':(after going OneWingedAngel)'''''YOU ARE NOT SMARTER THEN ME HOMER SIMPSON! I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL!''''' *Disappears*
-->'''Homer''':(sticking the donut into his shirt)Not likely. *Short Laugh*
** Of course, being Homer, he absent-mindedly eats the last bit of the donut while sleeping anyway. Challenged to a trial for the soul, the Devil is surprisingly amenable, summoning a judge and agreeing to bathroom breaks every half-hour on the condition that he chooses the jury.
** Played straight in "Bart Sells His Soul", in which he sells his soul (a piece of paper with "Bart Simpson's Soul" written on it) to Milhouse for $5, so he can buy some growing dinosaur sponges. Over the course of the episode, however, he begins to have bad dreams, being indifferent towards things that used to amuse him, and notice that the world around him seems to not recognize him, so he tries to get his soul back. Unfortunately, Milhouse sold Bart's soul to Comic Book Guy for Pogs, and he then sold it to someone "very interested in that soul." After he's given up, Lisa surprises him by revealing that she bought it, and gives it to him. Bart then eats the paper so that he doesn't lose his soul again.
** In an episode where Springfield's single people tried to change the law to make the town less family-friendly, Marge Simpson decided to lead a campaign to stop them. A tobacco company representative offered her a check. Once she took it, the representative took off his hat, revealing a pair of horns, assumed a more devil-like appearance in general and claimed she belonged to them. She pointed out she hadn't endorsed the check and the representative resumed his human look and claimed the horns were "football injury".
** [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Mr. Burns]] has been inclined to have made a deal with the devil (he even thanked Satan for his long age on the cover of a newspaper). Funnily enough, Burns has also played the role of the devil ''himself'' on a couple occasions, one being the time when Homer managed to destroy the Springfield church. The church couldn't afford the repairs so they were forced to let Mr. Burns turn it "profitable". Burns' role in the deal was made quite clear: Ned Flanders flat out said some considered him to be evil, a cross dropped on his head ''and'' his shadow even had little devil horns when he approached the church council (though they were revealed to only be a part of his hair standing up). After the necessary funds had been raised, Burns tried to escape in the cover of a smoke bomb taking all the money with him... [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments but the smoke had already cleared before he got to the door so he was forced to pay anyway.]]
* Sent up in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' season 4 finale "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings":
-->'''Bender:''' You may have to metaphorically make a deal with the devil. [[{{Dissimile}} And by "devil"]], I mean the Robot Devil. And by "metaphorically" I mean get your coat.
** In addition, it establishes that Calculon made a deal with the Robot Devil to get his '''[[LargeHam ACTING!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis TALENT!]]'''
** Also milked for laughs in "Hell is Other Robots", when the Robot Devil challenges Leela to the classic fiddle contest (which is apparently mandated by the "Fairness In Hell Act"). While he delivers a vicious performance (using two bows, no less), Leela lets off a few screeching notes, then bangs him over the head with the (golden) violin and escapes.
** And once more with Bender in "The Beast with a Billion Backs" - Bender wants a robot army to take over the world, and the Robot Devil will give it to him - in exchange for his firstborn son. We then cut to Bender picking up a child robot, taking it back to hell, and punting it into a smelter - the Robot Devil then says that that [[EvenEvilHasStandards disgusted even him!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSQO7eum79A Observe.]]
** Early in "The Farnsworth Parabox", the Professor also calls on Zeus, Buddha, and God to get him out of the mess he was making, but apparently only Satan actually bothered to do anything (which, in a possible inversion, Farnsworth claimed was repayment for an existing debt).
* The Robert Johnson story is parodied on ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}''; the band meets with the "Blues Devil" for the purpose of selling their souls in exchange for mastery of the blues, but through their expertise in contract negotiation bargain him down to a $5 Hot Topic gift card AND part of the Devil's soul. It is unknown whether or not the devil took the deal.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'' episode "Bright Lights," Erebus offered to make Knight Shade famous, in exchange for "a little cooperation" - letting Erebus and his underling Zeb steal the shadows of his audience.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XReUHG5THro banned episode]] shows ''why'' the Devil can't "take the soul and run" -- Beelzebub, disguised as a janitor, tells a crude lie to Gosalyn that the Forbidden Book section of the school library was replaced with permitted books, which means she honestly believed she had permission to use it (although she really should have confirmed this claim with a librarian first) so the contract is invalid, and he loses his victim. Don't mistake this for a clever twist - it just makes the whole thing pretty pointless by taking away what's central to the trope. "Your soul is mine forever! Or at least until someone bothers to come fetch you back!"
* Spoofed on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' when Peter says he'd sell his soul for the chance to take a tour of the Pawtucket Patriot Ale brewery. The Devil is eager for the opportunity, but then one of his assistants checks through Hell's computer archives and points out that Peter already sold his soul in the 1970s for [[Music/TheBeeGees Bee Gees]] tickets, and again in the 1980s for half a Malomar. An annoyed Devil wonders where he can get a lawyer, and [[AmoralAttorney half of Hell's population immediately volunteers for the job]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' Halloween episode, the devil offers Brain the world in exchange for his soul. Brain refuses because he's angry about being called a failure, but later finds out that the gullible Pinky has been persuaded to sign in his place, in exchange for a "radish rose watchamahoozit." However, the devil is forced to release Pinky when it turns out that he doesn't even know what one is.
* Occurs twice in the second ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|2003}}'' cartoon. In the first, colonist C.F. Volpehart makes a deal with an [[EldritchAbomination eldritch horror-ish]] entity in order to obtain riches; while the terms are never specified--souls are never mentioned--the fact that Volpehart eventually regrets the decision and longs to kill the beast is evidence that he clearly lost something in the bargain. The second occurs to the original Oroku Saki, who agrees to bond with a dying demon in exchange for PhysicalGod status--a deal which, given everything, turned out quite well for Saki.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' has Batman travelling back in time to Victorian England in an attempt to stop Gentleman Jim Craddock from releasing an [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned demon]] in exchange for immortality. Craddock succeeds in his attempt before Batman and his allies manage to reseal the demon, but Craddock realizes he's been betrayed when he's hanged for attempted murder and comes back as an undead ghost that can never pass into the afterlife. Now calling himself the Gentleman Ghost, the enraged and probably insane Craddock blames Batman for his plight (despite Batman warning him about what would happen if he went through with his deal with the demon), and swears revenge on him. Hence why the Ghost has been the lead villain in no less than three episodes so far, while Hawkman (his ArchEnemy who was originally involved with his origin in the comics) has yet to appear.
** In all fairness, Astaroth did not lie to nor betray Craddock like Batman expected ([[JediTruth from a certain point of view]]): when Craddock forced him to fulfill the deal, the demon said that "his soul will never leave this world". Let's just say that Astaroth's idea of imortality didn't fit Craddock's. Still, Batman was right about making deals with demons.
* Speaking of Batman, there is a deal with the devil in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Joker's Favor". Charles Michael Collins makes a deal with the Joker to do whatever he wants in order to save his own life. While the Joker is not exactly the devil or a supernatural equivalent, anyone would have to agree that he is at least the devil [[MagnificentBastard incarnate]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000'' had one in the form of Lil D signing a record contract to an obviously devil looking producer (the guys even had henchmen who look liked snakes and almost refers to himself as the Devil) named Big D. However, all of Lil D's gigs were just being used to sell hams, but the contract actually did state Lil D sold his soul, and Big D had a VillainSong called ''All We Want Is Your Soul''. Lil D challenges Big D to a series of contests (which are suggested by Lil D's friends) which Big D manages win every single time, using his supernatural powers. Sunny (the producer's real target) who turned him down frequently, signs with Big D to bail Lil D out. However, he manages to get out of it by purposely performing badly, tricking Big D into rip up the contract. Bonus points for rubbing it in his face afterwards.
* The third season of ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' had [[spoiler:Zak make a deal with V.V. Argost, in order to learn how to control his newfound powers]]. [[spoiler:Argost blatantly says his dark, ulterior motives in front of Zak.]] Just as a little warning. So when their use for each has ran out, they will find themselves in a battle of wits to survive.
* There was an episode of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' that was a parody of ''Film/TheShining''. It featured Heffer as a security guard who at one point says he'd sell his soul for a soda. He then goes into a haunted bar and gets a soda, afterward getting a paper that says, "1 Soda, 1 Soul".
* In ''[[VideoGame/DantesInferno Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic]]'', [[LoveInterests love interest]] Beatrice strikes a deal with [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] to see to it that Dante returns safely from his military service during the Crusades. Lucifer bets that Dante will betray her, and he's right -- while on duty, Dante accepts a prisoner's offer to have sex with her in exchange for calling off the guards that were mercilessly beating one of her fellow inmates, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero unknowingly costing Beatrice the bet and, by proxy, her soul]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''
** In "Money Talks", Mr. Krabs gives his soul to the Flying Dutchman in exchange for being able to talk to money (it's worth noting that the Flying Dutchman himself was surprised that Mr. Krabs would sell his soul for something so ridiculous, [[{{Flanderization}} but then again]]...). When the wish backfires and the Dutchman reverts it, he tells Mr. Krabs that he now owes him his soul... only for Mr. Krabs to point out that he already sold his soul ''several times'' to many other {{Eldritch Abomination}}s (and Spongebob!), who tell the Dutchman to get in line.
** In "Born Again Krabs", Mr. Krabs actually trades Spongebob's soul for 62 cents, trapping Spongebob in Davy Jones' locker until the Dutchman becomes so sick of him he willingly gives Spongebob back. This episode was a notable CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Squidward, who proceeded to [[CallingTheOldManOut call Mr. Krabs out]] on his selfishness -- notable because, under more normal circumstances, Squidward would probably have had a hard time caring about the situation.
* ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsMovieIIANewGeneration'' has a girl named Christy making one of these with a demon named Dark Heart (disguised as a boy), pledging to help him capture the Care Bears in exchange for his granting her athletic prowess.
** After seeing what she had done, she renounces the deal and loses her new athletic ability - but since she had been [[ChekhovsSkill a marble champ]] before all this, she manages to shoot a marble that brings down the chandelier prison the Care Bears were trapped in, freeing them all to battle the demon.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'': Megatron's bargain with Unicron, resulting in Megs' upgrade to Galvatron. Megatron didn't have a choice, as when he tried to refuse to make a bargain, Unicron threatened to eat him. Since it's very much still Megatron in there, Galvy's loyalty must be enforced by MindRape. Galvatron does a FaustianRebellion of sorts, attempting to make Unicron his slave after stealing the Matrix of Leadership. [[ThatsNoMoon It doesn't turn out how he expected.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' episode "Harmony Steals The Show", Harmony signs a contract that allows him to use Ghostwriter's original symphony as his own in exchange for being his eternal performer at his spectral nightclub. Papa Smurf and the other Smurfs help Harmony break the contract by revealing before the judge and jury that Ghostwriter's "original symphony" was actually musical pieces stolen from other musicians.
* Captain America in ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' makes a deal with Hela, the Norse goddess of death, to send him to the land of the living so he could save his friends. But once he dies, she will get his soul.
* In ''WesternAnimation/UglyAmericans'' Twayne Boneraper makes a deal with a politician that he'll become mayor in exchange for his soul. Unfortunately said politician is utterly unelectable and boasts openly about having made a deal with the devil. He ends up dying accidentally, putting Twayne up before the demonic court for being a failure as a demon, as the only soul he's managed to ensnare recently is that of a large, ill-tempered cat.
** Also, Callie's mother made a deal with the (current) devil himself, a marriage contract to be specific, though they later divorced.
** In yet another episode a Justin Bieber lookalike sold his soul for talent, and in that same episode Callie's dad tries to tempt Mark out of his soul when it is discovered he has the biggest one on record.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': In the episode "Out With The Old, In With The Ed", the Eds return to school and learn that they're in different classes. They are forced to deal with the Kanker Sisters to get into the same room together for a hefty price - they must publicly reveal their 'relationships' with the Kankers to all the kids at school. They finally arrive at their new classroom to find it's a girl's bathroom - where the Kankers soon arrive.
* In the ''Ben10UltimateAlien'' episode "The Enemy of my Frenemy", Charmcaster offers the lifeforce of every inhabitant of her dimension ''(600,000 people, including the heroes)'' to [[EldritchAbomination Diagon]] in exchange for her dead father's resurrection. However, her father refuses his resurrection, saying he never wanted this, that Charmcaster is being a worse tyrant than the one who killed him if she goes through with this, and that though he loves her, he can't stay with Charmcaster, and Diagon, as per the laws of magic, returns the lifeforce of Charmcaster's victims. Charmcaster suffers a VillainousBSOD afterward, followed by a progressive turn through the HeelFaceRevolvingDoor.
* In ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} [=ThunderCats (2011)=]]]'' General Grune, a frustrated wannabe [[TheUsurper usurper]] of his kingdom of Thundera, frees powerful SealedEvilInACan, SorcerousOverlord and BigBad Mumm-Ra in exchange for the promise of power, agreeing to [[LesCollaborateurs engineer]] Thundera's sacking and serve as TheDragon until Mumm-Ra gets ahold of an AmuletOfConcentratedAwesome. However, the [[AmbitionIsEvil always ambitious]] Grune is quick to recognize potential opportunities to [[TheStarscream betray his master]], and entrap or leave him for dead.
** In "Native Son", Tygra's backstory shows the consequences of denying the Devil what it wants. [[spoiler:The Tiger Clan was suffering from a plague and their leader Javan petitioned the Ancient Spirits of Evil for help. The Spirits demanded that Javan sacrifice his newborn son Tygra, and Javan agreed. At the moment of truth, Javan betrayed the deal and sent Tygra away on a hot air balloon to Thundera. As punishment, the Spirits sent the plague back to the village, killing everyone, then trapped them in a suspended state between life and death along with involuntary transformations into horrible mindless monsters every night.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'', Chase Young made one of these with [[TheCorrupter Hannibal Roy Bean]], selling his soul to the side of evil in return for a potion that gives him eternal youth and power. Raimundo also [[FaceHeelTurn makes one]] with [[SealedEvilInACan Wuya]], who offers him everything he ever wanted in return for restoring her to her powerful physical form. She delivers on this promise, but [[spoiler:he [[HeelFaceTurn turns on her]] to save his friends and seals her away in the new puzzle box.]] In the parallel universe of the finale, [[spoiler:it was Master Monk Guan who made the deal with Bean instead of Chase.]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' episode "Swamp of the Living Dead", the LegionOfDoom makes a deal with a malevolent being (WordOfGod says that the being was {{Satan}}, but the show called him the Evil Being to get him past standards): lure the Superfriends into his swamp for him to imprison, and he will grant them the ultimate power of evil. When the Legion succeeds, the Evil Being grants them the power to command armies of TheUndead. After using the zombies to rob and plunder a bit, the Legion decide to capture the Evil Being and force him to give them ''more'' power. Enraged, he easily escapes and turns the zombies on them. Unable to defeat the zombies, the Legion is forced to free the Superfriends to save themselves.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' episode "Bargain With Evil", Lady Arvela promises the demon Angast anything in exchange for Angast releasing her father from his servitude to him. Angast orders her to bring him the Starchild. Arvela [[GenreBlindness agrees when Angast promises not to harm the Starchild and to let her go after he has seen her]]. Naturally, Angast breaks his word and traps everybody in his realm. Naturally, He-Man and Orko save everybody. Everybody, including Arvela's father, scold her both for making a deal with Angast and for putting a little girl in danger.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers,'' making a deal with "the Investors," a group of [[IntangibleMan Intangible Men]] under the employ of the [[WeirdTradeUnion Guild of Calamitous Intent]] usually ends poorly for the deal maker. When Pete White and Billy Quizboy unknowingly make a deal with them, Brock Samson informs them that they are the only people who have "borrowed money from [the Investors] and lived long enough to panic about it".
* In ''GravityFalls'' episode "Dreamscaperers", Gideon summons the enigmatic demon Bill Cipher (Y'know, that triangle guy you see during the intro) to invade Stan's mind and retrieve the combination to the safe where the Mystery Shack's deed is kept. Bill agrees, and states that in return Gideon can help him with something Bill's working on. However, the intervention of the Pines Twins prevent Bill from carrying out his end of the bargain, causing Gideon to call the deal off, [[spoiler: and just use dynamite on the safe instead.]]... No doubt eventually Bill will just grab another memory of the safe: and ask for whatever the hell he wanted from Gideon... It's not bound to end well for the deranged nine year old.
* In Disney's feature film version of WesternAnimation/{{Pinocchio}}, the Coachman's boy victims in effect sell their souls to him in exchange for a night of unrestricted fun and mischief on Pleasure Island, only to have the deal foreclosed on them after they are turned into donkeys, and he sells them into slavery at various mines and circuses.
* The Halloween special WesternAnimation/TheDevilAndDanielMouse is an animated adaption of TheDevilAndDanielWebster that centers around a young mouse girl who sells her soul to the devil [[LouisCypher (named B.L. Zebubb)]] in order to be a rock star. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHZTC1ljA84 See it here.]]
