* HarrySTruman was subject to this during his time in WW1. As a captain of an artillery battery, he noticed the Germans setting up across a river, well within range of a neighboring artillery battery, so in defiance of a direct order that stated to only fire if his position was in danger, destroyed the enemy position. Truman was read the riot act by his superiors, but otherwise unpunished.

* Essentially the entire plot of ''VideoGame/TraumaTeam'' 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.

* 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.

* Inverted in ''Film/FlightCrew''.
-->'''Airline director''': The unmatched bravery and heroism shown in saving the lives of Russian and foreign citizens, the exemplary behavior during the catastrophe and the brilliant piloting skills… aren't enough to keep you employed, because of you disobeying straight orders from your superiors.

* 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.
