* A deleted scene from ''Film/SuicideSquad'' shows a furious Harleen Quinzel confronting Joker for not taking her as his lover after everything she had done for him. She pulls out one of his guns from his coat and points it at his head (after shooting a loudmouth trucker). Joker repeatedly tells her to "do it". Harleen is on the verge of tears that being in love frightens him yet the threat of death doesn't.

* Both [[spoiler:Aribeth]] in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' and [[spoiler:Bastila]] in ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' insist you kill them, as they have come too far to turn back to the good side if you persist in trying. However, both works being rather on the idealistic side, they both relent and come back if you previously completed their RomanceSidequest or roll a really high Persuade check.

* [[spoiler:Saffron]] in the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Our Mrs. Reynolds". By asking for this she is also reacting to the hero's equivalent of a ReasonYouSuckSpeech with the villain's form of a ShutUpHannibal. Of course, Mal [[WouldntHitAGirl Wouldn't Shoot a Girl]], or at least not an unarmed one.

** In the season 5 episode "Dark Side of the Moon," Dean is sitting in his hotel room at gunpoint as Roy and Walt argue over whether or not to kill him. He finally growls, "Go ahead, Roy, do it. But I'm gonna warn ya--when I come back, I'm gonna be pissed." This can be viewed as a variation on the trope because [[DeathIsCheap Dean knew Zachariah would just resurrect him anyway]].

Unaware until after the fact that Frigga has pulled strings to have him be kept alive, Loki asks that "If I'm for the axe, then for mercy's sake, just ''swing it''."


* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', John traps a number of adventurers neck-deep in mud and Ringo goes to talk to them. While he's standing there wondering what to say, one of the adventurers says to him, in effect, “Hurry up and torture us and get it over with already!” Since Ringo is an ActualPacifist, his response is a FlatWhat.

Added DiffLines:

* The final scene of ''Film/TheDeparted'' features a low-key version as [[spoiler:Sullivan]] returns to his luxury apartment to find [[spoiler:Dignam]] wearing hospital slippers over his shoes to disguise his footprints and holding a loaded gun, ready to avenge his dead comrades (even the ones he never liked). Having known his crimes would catch up with him eventually, [[spoiler:Sullivan]], in a tone of almost disgusted resignation, sighs, "Okay." [[spoiler:Dignam]] promptly shoots him in the head and makes a quick getaway.

* In ''Literature/TheDarkElfTrilogy'' when Dinin is surrounded by enemy soldiers he fully expects to be killed and being an AlwaysChaoticEvil drow himself, isn't even angry about it. However, he asks to be killed quickly and without pain. When the answer is "No," he is ready to fight to the death. Then he learns it's "No, I won't kill you at all." Despite his unrepentant evil, this [[FaceDeathWithDignity calm, absolutely sober way he faces his death as a consequence of his life style]] is a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoA]] for Dinin.

* Subverted by [[PlayerCharacter the Boss]] in ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2''. After [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty outright cheating in a sword duel]], the Boss catches Akuji with no weapons, with a gun pointed to his head. Akuji utters this trope. Instead of finishing him, or leaving him alive, the Boss goes to his/her back, picks another sword, stabs through Akuji's defenseless body, calls his/her friend Mr. Wong, and purposefully aggravates the wound to make Akuji scream in pain to the phone. ''Then'' (s)he leaves him alive, in a burning, soon-to-explode ship.
