* In ''Fanfic/{{Symbiosis}}, Brock chews out Ash for getting involved in the siege, as it could have gone horribly wrong, but he does concede that Ash made a good call in covertly stopping Team Rocket from killing Melanie and taking the eggs.

* Essentially the entire plot of ''Trauma Team'' is this. The main character killed many in a terrorist attack but is apparently the best surgeon in the world and thus he is allowed to perform surgery in exchange for a reduced sentence. Also, he has amnesia from the attack so he doesn't remember killing people.

** ''The Warrior's Apprentice'': Miles commits fraud by misrepresenting land he mortgages, bends or breaks Betan law a couple other times and leans on his family name to protect him, smuggles and fights and deceives his way into command of a mercenary outfit, and [[spoiler:ends up on trial for treason because he raised a private army]]. But he [[spoiler:gives up that army to the Emperor as a deniable intelligence asset for Barrayar]] and comes out smelling like roses.
** ''The Vor Game'': Miles repeatedly disobeys orders, sometimes in situations warranted (criminal orders by an abusive commander) and other times less so (perfectly legal orders, but which Miles feels are wrong for the situation), and generally deceives and cheats all around, leading up to [[spoiler:saving the young Emperor, who briefly ran away from his responsibilities in a fit of depression, and narrowly averting a war among the powers of the Hegen Hub of which Cetaganda was ready to take advantage]].
** ''Memory'': Miles averts his trend of pulling these off terribly at the start of the book when he [[spoiler:has a seizure mid-mission and accidentally fires off his plasma arc, slicing off the legs of the man he and the Dendarii were sent to rescue -- seizures which Miles had known about but covered up rather than admit to, and lied about in his report]]. Simon sums up Miles's whole career in [=ImpSec=] in a painful inversion where Miles did everything unconventionally but right for so long and then this last act all but invalidates everything else.
** ''Captain Vorpatril's Alliance'': Late in the book, Ivan gets involved in a scheme by [[spoiler:his new wife's family, to plunder a cache of Occupation-era riches and artifacts in a sealed bunker hidden under [=ImpSec=] Headquarters. Excavation destabilizes the ground under Headquarters, and when the tunnels are flooded, the whole of Headquarters visibly sinks into the ground]]. Ivan's involvement should have probably gotten him court-martialed for keeping things secret, but at the same time, if he wasn't involved, then [[spoiler:the bunker may well not have been recovered so that Barrayar got control of everything inside instead of Ivan's Jacksonian in-laws]]. For his sins, Ivan is assigned off-world, which he [[spoiler:turns into a years-long tropical honeymoon with his wife, Tej]].

Added DiffLines:

-->'''The Emperor''': You stole your father's armor, ran away from home, impersonated a soldier, deceived your commanding officer, dishonored the Chinese Army, destroyed my palace, and... you have saved us all.

Added DiffLines:

* Hilariously subverted in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. Chief Bogo points out all the damage Judy incurred while hunting down Duke Weaselton and when it comes to the livesaving part he sarcastically notes the moldy onions she managed to retrieve.
-->'''Bogo''': Abandoning your post. Inciting a scurry. Reckless endangerment of rodents. But, to be fair...you did stop a master criminal from stealing two dozen moldy onions.

* The girls of the bastion in ''Anime/SoundOfTheSky' violate quite a few military laws in the last few episodes. [[spoiler:Harbouring an enemy soldier without informing their superiors, disobeying direct orders, lying to a superior officer, assaulting a superior officer, tying up said superior officer in their illegal distillery, going AWOL and attacking friendly units (although in fairness, they were attacked first). All in all, it's a good thing they're friends with Rio, who is princess of Helvetia and third wife to the Roman Emperor by that point.]]
