* The ''Series/{{Angel}}'' [[Recap/AngelS04E22Home season 4 finale]] deals with the aftermath of the heroes taking down the season's BigBad in the previous episode, in which a representative of [[BiggerBad Wolfram and Hart]] congratulates them on thwarting world peace.
* ''Series/{{Blackadder}} II'' features one after Blackadder blackmails the Baby-Eating Bishop of Bath and Wells who "drowns babies at their christening and eats them in the vestry afterwards" by arranging some very compromising paintings.
--> '''Bishop:''' You fiend! Never have I encountered such corrupt and foul-minded perversity! Have you ever considered a career in the Church?

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'', when Dr. Richard Impossible becomes evil--well, more evil than he had been up to that point--he exploits his former brother-in-law's [[Comicbook/FantasticFour Johnny Storm]]-like ability to burst into flames as a PowerSource for his Manhattan office building. Unlike Johnny Storm, however, the victim has no ability to control his powers, and is in constant agony whenever he's conscious. Baron Ünderbheit praises this as the most evil thing he's ever seen.

* In '' VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' and its sequel, the Mandalorians as a whole regarding Revan. Revan thoroughly trashed them in the Mandalorian Wars, but far from being sore they have instead placed Revan on a pedestal. Canderous in particular describes Revan's use of expert tactics, and ferocity on the battlefield, and even Revan's defeat of Mandalore the Ultimate in tones of admiration. By Mandalorian values, Revan was the ultimate WorthyOpponent, and to face Revan in battle was the ultimate honor win or lose. [[spoiler: And where pretty much everyone else is upset when finding out the PC is an amnesiac Darth Revan, Canderous instead becomes the Mandalorian version of TheKnightsWhoSaySquee]].

** In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', 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 absense, 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?
* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', virtually everyone you fight with who comes across Cerberus (including one or two of the people who work for them) expresses disgust at their nasty experiments, human-supremacist agenda and [[spoiler:resorting to the use of Reaper tech in the third game]]. On the other hand, they did build the [[CoolStarship Normandy SR-2]], which has earned praise from certain characters for its superior engineering compared to the old Normandy. This includes Tali'Zorah, who comes from a species highly adept at technology, and Engineer Adams, who served on the old Normandy SR-1.

* In the ''Literature/{{Lensman}}'' series, the Boskone culture being based on survival of the fittest, it's pretty much a RunningGag for a superior to praise the efforts of his BastardUnderstudy to supplant him (while of course pointing out why an attempt to do so would be dangerous for his health).
