* On the [[PenalColony prison planet]] of Belsavis in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', it turns out that the Republic was conducting experiments on [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman alien prisoners]] by forcing them to fight one another and comparing the performance of each species. If you are playing an Imperial character, you can overhear the following conversation between two NPC scientists on the Imperial side.
-->'''Imperial Scientist #1:''' These experiments the Republic's been conducting--xenophobia, genocidal conditioning...I can hardly believe it.\\

** Some Mandalorians and the codex itself mention that they sided with the Empire at least partially to get opportunities to fight the Jedi. In Revan's absence, they'll settle for the rest of the Order, believing that the Jedi are the most powerful warriors in the galaxy. After all, what better way to gain prestige than to fight and defeat the same people who trained Revan or held onto some of Revan's teachings? [[note]] This means their work for the Empire is a StealthInsult to the Sith, who they ''don't'' consider worthy of a good battle, and Mandalore the Vindicated openly expresses disdain for the Sith and Imperial military, saying that the Empire wouldn't be able to win an ''argument'' with the Republic if the Mandos weren't doing their fighting for them.

* From ''Disney/RobinHood'' there is a small subversion, after Prince John learns of the latest hit that his subjects have come up with against him and that both the Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Hiss have somehow managed to learn the lyrics (and that the former had been singing it on his tax collecting sprees as of late): "They'll be singing a different tune! Double the taxes! ''Triple'' the taxes! ''SQUEEZE EVERY LAST DROP'' out of those insolent... ''musical'' peasants." Note that he sounded slightly amused when he got to the word "musical".



** [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0809.html Tarquin, to Roy]] after the latter caused major structural damage to the gladiator games arena. Roy is somewhat bewildered.

* In ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness,'' [[Characters/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Etna]] uses VillainProtagonist [[Characters/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Laharl]] as bait to get what she wants from BigBadWannabe Maderas, without either of them knowing. After Laharl finds out what Etna's intentions were, does he get angry at her for using him? ...no, he compliments her on how devious she is and [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments promotes her to his right hand demon]].

** Consular companion Tharan Cedrax makes a habit of it. He's nominally a pacifist, but his ForScience motivation and belief that knowledge is valuable in and of itself, means that while he doesn't necessarily approve of the damage some WMD, technology-based ArtifactOfDoom, or ''highly'' unethical research project, he will approve of the cleverness it took to come up with it.

* In the beginning of ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', [[BigBad Cackletta]] ambushes Mario, Luigi, and Bowser (who is involved in an EnemyMine with the Bros.). Bowser's mad at her, not because of her evil plan, but because said plan was cool.
-->'''Bowser:''' You're the fiend who stole Peach's voice! How dare you pull off such a cool evil plan?

** Later in the season, Ezra more or less cons information from Hondo, promising him a finder's fee and then bluntly refusing to give it once he has what he wants. Hondo's response is [[SoProudOfYou pride]] in Ezra for learning so quickly.
** [[spoiler:Maul]] is highly amused when he finds out that Ezra once stole a Jedi holocron.
