** Ser Alliser Thorne says this about [[spoiler:killing Lord-Commander Jon Snow]], saying that he's fully aware that he committed an act of treason, but did it for the good of the Night's Watch itself. He even maintains this position [[spoiler:just before he and his surviving accomplices are hanged for the murder]].

* ''Series/WaywardPines'': Dr. Pilcher [[spoiler:predicts that humanity would doom itself in a matter of centuries]]. His attempts to warn the world community result in him being the laughingstock of the world. Being already wealthy, he starts a project to [[spoiler:use [[HumanPopsicle cryogenics]] to preserve the best and the brightest to repopulate the human race about 2000 years later]]. Unfortunately for him, most refuse his offer, so he [[spoiler:uses various methods to kidnap people and freeze them against their will]]. This also applies to anyone who starts looking at the mysterious disappearances in Wayward Pines, Idaho. [[spoiler:Fast-forward to the year 4028, some of the people have been woken up and live in the town, although very few know the truth]]. Most adults think they were in some sort of car accident and woke up in the town hospital. There are several cardinal rules in Wayward Pines: don't try to leave, don't speak of the past, always answer the phone, etc. Disobeying the rules can result in a public execution. Some of the children are told the truth but are warned to keep it secret even from their parents. Why? [[spoiler:Two reasons: 1) Everyone currently living in the town belongs to Group B. Group A was awakened first and were immediately told the truth. After a few months, DespairEventHorizon kicked in, and most committed suicide rather than live with the truth that they are all that's left of human civilization. 2) There are vicious humanoid creatures living outside the massive walls of the town, nicknamed Aberrations or Abbies by Pilcher, what's left of humanity]]. Unfortunately, Pilcher's policies (including BigBrother-like monitoring) have resulted in a secret group deciding to find a way out no matter the cost, including blowing up a chunk of the wall. Given the second reason stated above, that would be a [[{{Understatement}} really bad idea]].

** Comes up again in "The Zygon Inversion". In the final confrontation, Bonnie the Zygon tries to blame the Doctor for creating the circumstances that led to the Zygon uprising and all the pain and suffering involved. The Doctor points out that, since she's the one ''leading'' the Zygon uprising, she has no small amount of responsibility for what's happened as well. Bonnie invokes this trope, but the Doctor throws it back in her face; both of them felt that what they were doing was necessary at the time, so if she tries to use this to deflect responsibility for her own actions onto others, then so can he.

** At the end of the episode "Inter Arma Enin Silent Leges", Admiral Ross uses this as his justification for working with [[NoSuchAgency Section 31]] to frame a Romulan senator, who was Ross' personal friend, for treason so a Federation mole could take her place. If the senator had remained in place, she would've been willing to sell out the Federation in exchange for a separate, more favorable peace with the Dominion, while the Federation mole would argue for continued support for the war.
-->'''Ross:''' I don't like it. But I've spent the last year and a half of my life ordering young men and young women to die. I like that even less.

** In "Happy Anniversary," Angel admits to Lorne (then known as "The Host") that he fired his team for their own good because the kind of dark territory he was treading would [[DespairEventHorizon damage them internally]], and his mission to bring down Wolfram & Hart would have endangered their lives. Unfortunately, [[WhatTheHellHero none of them bought that, particularly Cordelia.]]

Unfortunately, So he had to make that he didn't care about them so they wouldn't worry about his well-being and that he'd do something as extreme as letting Darla and Drusilla massacre the Wolfram & Hart lawyers, including Holland Manners, for making Darla a vampire again and ruining his chance of redeeming her. He was willing to allow his team to hate him and consider it a betrayal [[WhatTheHellHero none of (and they did, especially Cordelia)]] just to keep them bought that, particularly Cordelia.]]from getting darker as well and instead stick to the good fight he'd given up on.



** Geppetto sent his son Pinocchio through a second portal in order to save him from possibly turning back to wood as the Dark Curse was cast. In this case doing what he 'has to do' is separating a mother from her child (as Snow could have used the second portal to go with Emma). And in this case it acts as a StartOfDarkness for Pinocchio, since his father is still abandoning a young boy to fend for himself.
