* The postgame of ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' has this where [[spoiler: the player finds Mew asleep at the end of Purifying Cave. However, when Mew is approached, who should stop the player but Nuzleaf and the Beheeyem. They tell the player to stay back, as Mew is said to have some parts of Dark Matter left. As Mew glows, the player questions if they accept this... And that is when the player outright '''refuses''' to accept Mew's fate; the player does not want to say goodbye for the second time, and the player just does not care a bit if they bring back Dark Matter by bringing the partner back because the player can just fight it again. Then, the scarves the player and partner have are sacrificed to bring the partner back, and Mew tells the player that it is because of the player's wish that the partner came back. It turns out to be a setup masterminded by Ampharos to lure the player into the Purifying Cave to bring the partner back, and Nuzleaf and the Beheeyem got the chance to redeem themselves and succeeded.]]

* ''VideoGame/AlphadiaGenesis'': Walter, a knight from a neighboring kingdom who lost to TheHero, Fray, in a battle tournament, demands a rematch when they meet up again a year later and wants it ''now''! Never mind that they meet up in a crowded tavern and drawing his sword in the midst of civilians while on an official mission for his king would have tarnished his honor far more than a fair loss.

* The Half-Zatoichi in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is a katana wielded by the Demoman and the Soldier. It is Honorbound, meaning that once you draw it, you can't switch to another weapon until you get a kill with it, but getting a kill with it gets you back all your health points.

* In the ''{{Warcraft}}'' book ''[[WarcraftExpandedUniverse Of Blood and Honor]]'', the human paladin Tirion Fordring is an extremely honourable guy, saving an elderly man from a race which pretty much all of humanity was still recovering from having being nearly crushed by at the time. Doing so saw him exiled for treachery and his wife refusing to take herself and their son into the ruin he made for himself. His magical powers were supposed to have been taken from him, though due to nature of his use of them, it is assumed that they were granted by moral righteousness -- which has since been debated and argued about in true nature, due to ''WorldOfWarcraft''.

* In the storyline of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' Kotal Kahn, TheEmperor of all Outworld, permits a foreign emissary of no great importance to challenge him in TrialByCombat for the life of a petty thief. His decision to personally participate himself instead of using a champion is questionable, although it may have been a calculated risk given that he's [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking an incredibly deadly warrior]]. Less forgivable is that upon losing, he insists that the winner execute him as per ancient tradition, even though he's in the midst of a SuccessionCrisis and his death would give the throne to his hated, psychotic rival. He only survives because his opponent [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou needs him on the throne]] and demands his service instead.

* Red from ''{{Solatorobo}}'' usually acts before he thinks, and, being a generally nice guy, he's usually acing heroically (or [[IdiotHero stupidly]], but sometimes GoodIsDumb). He justification for rushing headlong into a mission that seems hopelessly outmatched is just "IGaveMyWord."

* In ''SamuraiWarriors'', Naoe Kanetsugu embodies this trope to a tee, Azai Nagamasa less so (who splits this with his [[LoveFreak love]] of Oichi). Interestingly, the JerkAss Ishida Mitsunari actually adopts this trope by his decisive battle at Sekigahara [[spoiler:by refusing an officer's suggestion of a sneak attack on the enemy, and revealing in his ending that his friends' honor tropes actually rubbed off on him]].

* In '' {{Romancing SaGa}}'', Lord Theodore is the leader of the Knights of the Dominion, and one of the few who still follows their code to the letter. Unfortunately, he is '''''so''''' convinced that he's '''''the''''' bastion [[JusticeWillPrevail of justice and honor]], '''''the''''' [[HolierThanThou last such bastion left in the Dominion]] that he constantly overcompensates for the failings of his kin, both real and imagined. Rather than leading by example, he becomes LawfulStupid incarnate.

* This is used for IdiotHero Wain's EstablishingCharacterMoment in ''VideoGame/LufiaTheLegendReturns''. When a bolt of lightning sets a house on fire and a little girl is trapped inside, Wain rushes in without hesitation, pulls the girl out, then collapses from his injuries. Seena heals him, then asks what he would have done if she ''wasn't'' able to heal him...to which he replies that she ''could'' heal him, so it wasn't a problem anyway.
