** [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/962/305/3c8.jpg Witness Donald's philosophical manga explaination.]]
** In ''KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', the three protagonists are part of an order of Keyblade knights sworn to keep order in the Realm of Light [[spoiler: after the Keyblade War shattered it into pieces]]. While they adhere to the "don't tell locals about other worlds" part of the rule, they have free reign to act openly otherwise due to the [[TheHeartless Unversed]] invasion (it's implied that they'd be forbidden to interfere otherwise). Terra [[spoiler: ends up violating the clause-such as it is-by telling a young Riku about the world outside Destiny Island and even ''passes the ability to wield the Keyblade to him'', setting him up for his StartOfDarkness at the beginning of the series]].

* In Creator/DavidDrake's ''Literature/RanksOfBronze'' TheFederation prohibits the use of advanced weaponry on primitive planets, ostensibly for the primitive's sake but really to prevent them from getting ideas and becoming a threat. In addition, other forms of contact such as trade in raw materials, or slaves, are allowed with primitives. Trade Guilds can even strong-arm primitives into accepting trade deals so long as they stick to muscle-powered weapons, which is why one Guild buys a [[HumansAreWarriors Roman Legion]] from Carrhae.

** One minor race that embraced the idea was featured in a single episode, and everyone they met reacted with abject horror at their callousness. Other than using the word "inferior" instead of "less advanced" it was basically the original Prime Directive.

They decided that humans were worth allying with when they learned about the concept of slums.

** In the episode, "Deathwalker", a renegade Dilgar scientist named Jha'dur is captured but bargains her freedom with a breakthrough medication that grants immortality. Before her medication can be mass-produced, she is killed by the Vorlons. Ambassador Kosh tells an assembled audience, "You are not ready for immortality."

It's made complicated in that, unknown to most of the cast, the medicine was a trap; it requires the murder of a sentient being to use, and Jha'dur had planned for it to cause the other races to fall on each other like rabid animals to fuel their own immortality.

* ''Series/MyFavoriteMartian'', which first aired in 1963, three years before ''Star Trek'' premiered. Martin speaks several times about how he admires the achievements of humanity -- the discovery of gravity and electricity, the space program -- has witnessed many of them, but never steps in to do it ''for'' us.

* In ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'', we find out that this is the main reason [[spoiler:the Iconians were nearly killed off: they had incredible technology and lesser races wanted it. However, the Iconians feared they would use it for terrible purposes and refused to allow them access at that scale if they weren't [[YouAreNotReady sufficiently advanced enough]]. However, the races grew insanely jealous and thought the Iconians arrogant, thus they ended up bombarding Iconia in order to get the technology. They didn't succeed.]]

* Usually averted in Creator/DavidBrin's ''Literature/{{Uplift}}'' series. "Pre-sentient" species are nearly always {{uplifted|Animal}} by the time they reach a stone age level of technology at the latest. However the Institute of Migration often designates planets or even entire regions of space to "lie fallow" for several million years so their ecosystems can recover before allowing re-colonization. Earth was in the middle of a cluster of fallow systems that had been devastated in a war and was overlooked (except perhaps by our mysterious NeglectfulPrecursors, but [[MysteryForTheAges we'll never know if they existed]].)

Added DiffLines:

* Deconstructed in ''FanFic/KingsOfRevolution''. The TSAB's non-interference policy prevent them from conducting any deep investigation over the Earth's activities. LOGOS takes advantage of this in order to set up bases. More importantly, it keeps the heroines of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' from helping their countrymen suffering from the brutal treatment of foreign occupiers and [[ArrestedForHeroism are prompted to arrest those who do try to help]]. That draws additional ire from their former friends, [[spoiler: with one pulling a FaceHeelTurn]].
