* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': [[TheLancer Kazuma]] [[RatedMForManly Kuwabara]] is pretty much the embodiment of this trope. He [[HotBlooded loudly]] declines his teammates' offers to keep him from dying, insisting that men fight their own battles, and later, after whupping a kid who nearly killed him and his {{Muggle}} friends, Kuwabara opts to save the kid's life by dragging not only his unconscious body, but the body all three of his friends to a hospital despite sustaining heavy injuries himself.

** Johan/Jessie from refuses to use cards that destroy opponent monsters with effects, claiming that such a strategy is too simple and boring.

*** In the second season, [[UpperClassTwit Iok Kujan]] accidentally re-awakens an automated, human-slaughtering mobile armor from the Calamity War and his subordinates [[TakingTheBullet sacrifice their lives]] in order to let him escape. When Julietta finds Iok later, he's come to the conclusion that he '''has''' to destroy the mobile armor personally to avenge the deaths of his men, despite the fact that none of their weapons so much as scuffed its paint. Julietta just looks at him like he's lost his mind. Iok then proceeds to fruitlessly attack the mobile armor, [[SpannerInTheWorks unknowingly derailing Tekkadan's carefully laid plans]], which also [[spoiler:causes the deaths of an entire farming village before it can be stopped]].

** During the TournamentArc, George suggests Hiei attack Bui while the latter is removing his armor. The girls scold him that Hiei is too honorable to do such a thing, with Kuwabara's sister suggesting George would attack a man with his back turned or even handcuffed and blindfolded. They all seem to forget that the tournament is BloodSport where the vast majority of the fights end in one of the fighters killing the other. The rules themselves are pretty much limited to "Keep it in the ring, fight one on one (most of the time), and only five people to a team", otherwise anything goes.

* ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. The series oozes this: even the antagonists, none of whom are even remotely nice people, will abide by the rules of martial arts--which is to say, even though they all want the main character either dead or on their side, none of them will go ahead and kill him, despite having many chances to do so. The title character himself, meanwhile, has a strict set of beliefs that he ''will not break,'' regardless of how much sense they make to others. It's completely [[BadAss awesome,]] of course.

** Unlike their future counterparts, #17 and #18 from the main timeline never team up against one person to keep things fair. If their enemies' comrades are intruding the battle, the remaining twin would join in to help out.

*** In all fairness, a combined attack would probably wouldn't work. Cell was just so far and above them and he was holding back severely against Goku and Gohan (initially). Vegeta and Trunks could barely handle a single Cell Jr so they would be pretty worthless against a serious Cell. If Cell were to go all out and spit out Cell Jrs before Gohan turned Super Saiyan 2, they would definitely be screwed, and if even if they got the upperhand, Cell would most likely try blowing up the Earth since he's not exactly known to be a good sport. So in many ways, they were really at a Cell's whim, and playing along until Gohan was able to be strong enough to completely obliterate him before he pulls anything off was the only sure bet. Of course, you could definitely argue that they didn't really know Cell was that strong. Except maybe Goku.

* In ''HajimeNoIppo'', World Champion David Eagle is unwilling to exploit Takamuras bleeding wound by targeting it, possibly giving him a TKO win. Any normal boxer would have done so, and Takamura himself does without hestitation. However, this also has to do with Eagle wanting to fight his opponent on the same level, in order to push himself further.

** The entirety of the Cell Games only goes down the way it does because the heroes treat it like a real tournament. Instead of simply powering up to full and the entire group all blasting Cell into oblivion at the same time, Goku goes in first, exhausts himself, then has Gohan go in, resulting in the entire group being beaten to near death. By the time the group wises up and actually DOES do this Cell has powered up so much and eliminated or weakened several of the Z Fighters so that those who are left to fight are too weak to do any actual damage. This is particularly odd because Cell would not be the first villain nor the last where ganging up upon them rather than giving them a "fair fight" is the exactly what they attempt to do.

** In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', the main characters are capable of killing other Digimon without batting an eye, Kari and TK included. In the sequel anime, however, they make a big fuss about ''wounding'' a rampaging SkullGreymon that can ''very'' easily kill them.
