* Subverted rather disturbingly in [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/119688/1/you-obey/the-interrogation You Obey.]] The protagonist carries out the interrogation in spite of his own feelings because a. He knows that he must. b. Everyone's lives depending on him successfully getting the information. c. He loves his job.
* FanFic/WingsToFly uses it in regards to Lucrezia Noin's wing, Lucille Forsythe, who takes it on herself to try and help Noin with various personal issues and frequently uses the phrase "a good wing looks after her lead" to justify when she's obviously going above and beyond what's expected of a wingman.

* In ''Literature/FieldsOfForeboding,'' Silean Seeker Wylar Gabriel has a note brutally pinned to his leg with a big knife by a pair of kidnappers. After his leg gets healed, however, he appears totally unfazed by the whole event, presumably because he thinks of it as an in-the-line-of duty kind of thing.

* The detectives on ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' series seem to fit this at times. Particularly Det. Stabler on [[LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit SVU]], who often finds his work emotionally unsettling and has had a lot of family problems because of it, but just won't quit for some reason.

* In the ''Literature/{{Quiller}}'' novels about British secret agent [[NoNameGiven Quiller]], Quiller makes clear that he (and by extension the other agents) do their job because they need the excitement. He presents it as a not very sane defect. I mean, he is all for helping humanity and his country and doing the right thing, but if he goes too long between assignments he starts to hang around the office waiting (begging) for something and finds himself agreeing to take assignments that he would have otherwise turned down.

* Literature/KateDaniels works two jobs, one at the Mercenary's Guild killing magical nasties and one at the Order of Merciful Aid, keeping the peace and tracking down serial killers. She mourns that she can't even have a pet because she's never home often enough to keep it alive, she's perpetually in dismal financial circumstances, and she's constantly being injured, brushing up against death three times in three books. Later it's revealed that she was offered a job with the elite Red Guard for very good money, but turned it down because it's too boring to sit around and wait for someone else to attack you. She'd prefer to be out there hunting down the bad guy.
* In Shanna Swendson's ''[[Literature/EnchantedInc Once upon Stilettos]]'', a gargoyle security guard's response when Katie thanks it for saving her.

* When Karina from ''TigerAndBunny'' considers quitting her dangerous, stressful, and often thankless job as a [[CorporateSponsoredSuperhero Hero]], she asks Kotetsu why he keeps at it (and puts everything he has into it, no less) when [[ButtMonkey he doesn't even get the same respect for his work that the other Heroes do]]. His answer is simple.
