* In ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', after Steamboat Willie attacks TheSquad and loses his men, he surrenders to the squad. Upham murders him in cold blood--because Upham was the one who insisted he be released before and this allowed him to rejoin the marching Nazi army... and ''back then'' he was going to be executed in cold blood after surrendering because the squad believed he was the one who killed Wade.
* ''Film/TheOutlawJoseyWales'' has a scene where a squad of Confederate rebels have surrendered, and a Union officer has them recite an oath renouncing their allegiance to the Confederacy, and also confess to being murderers. This proves to be meaningless, as a gatling gun hidden in a covered wagon mows down the unarmed rebels on the spot.

Fortunately, they manage to escape before they could be executed.
* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', when the Ironborns try to surrender to the Boltons in exchange so they could leave the area unharmed, the Boltons end up killing or flaying them alive regardless.
