* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker on the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "MadLove", who was able to talk his psychiatrist Harlene Quinzel into becoming [[Characters/BatmanRoguesGalleryPart1 Harley Quinn]] while still in Arkham.

* In ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'', Menendez (the game's big bad) gives up quite easily when the player catches up to him about 2/3rds of the way through the game.
