* ''{{Champions}}'' adventure ''Deathstroke'': The {{villain}} group The Destroyers decide to take over the United States. They think they'll be better leaders than the corrupt politicians running the country because the Destroyers admit that they're criminals.
* A ''lot'' of references to the [[LawfulStupid modrons]] and the [[TheChessmaster rilmani]] in the ''{{Planescape}}'' campaign mention that dealing with demons is often ''easier'' than dealing with them, because at least with demons, you know what to expect.

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed'': Various templars sometimes give this. Perhaps most obvious use of this was by Haytham Kenway in AssassinsCreedIII, who said the only difference between him and the revolutionary leaders is that "I do not feign affection."

If presented positively, this can lead to a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop depending on the nature of their transgressions - someone who admits to being a jerk at least is aware of their flaws rather than simply being oblivious about their bad behavior, but embracing being AxCrazy isn't really a good thing.

* In MarioParty 3, Baby Bowser (along with Toad) is in charge of handing out items to players who land on his space. He asks you a personal question about your habits (like "Do you keep your room clean?"), and he rewards someone who admits to being rather undisciplined and childish ("You're honest, I like that.") If the player answers that he keeps his room clean, Baby Bowser will accuse the player of just saying whatever sounds good in order to get a prize, and the reward is more stingy than what he gives to someone who admits to letting his room get messy.

* In ''Comicbook/VoteLoki'', this is basically Loki's campaign platform: He's a supervillain and a trickster god, but at least he's honest about how dishonest he is while other politicians lie about who they are.

* Eustass Kid in ''Manga/OnePiece''. Sure, he's somewhere between a SociopathicHero and monster who's attacked and killed people just for laughing at him or looking at him funny... but that doesn't stop him from criticizing the World Government for doing equally evil, [[EvenEvilHasStandards and worse]], things while proclaiming that their methods are "Justice," as well as the World Nobles, [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem who use their status as the descendants of the Twenty Kings who founded the World Government to do whatever the hell they want whenever they want to]]. He even explicitly says that, though he's not "the nicest of guys," at least he's honest about it.

* MotherKeeper: Towards the end of the manga, Graham calls out the protagonist for all the times he ignored the consequences of being a terrorist, an assassin, and utterly naïve enough to work for the two without thinking he's the villain. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Big mistake]].

** One episode where Peter is running a bakery, a woman comes in several times to get a sample of a cookie but not buy anything, and Peter starts to get annoyed:
-->'''Woman:''' Ooh, I'm so bad...
-->'''Peter:''' You gonna buy a cookie this time?
-->'''Woman:''' Ooh, I'd better just stick with a sample. I'm so bad... but at least I know I'm bad, which makes me a little better. Or ''worse''.

* Davros inflicted this trope upon the Doctor in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Journey's End". Yes, it is true that Davros created the Daleks, ultimate xenophobes whose only instructions are to exterminate everything different. But can the Doctor be so high and mighty? He's killed too- committed genocide, in fact! And to bring the point home, he points out how he has changed his many companions into soldiers, all willing to kill in his name. Of course, the difference is that Davros acts only out of a desire for power - the Doctor and his companions always have good intentions at heart.

** Davros attempts to inflict this on the Doctor in "Journey's End", comparing his ultra-xenophobic creations (the Daleks) to the Doctor's companions, who are threatening to sacrifice the Earth to save reality from the Daleks. The Doctor is too depressed to offer a rebuttal, but the difference is that Davros acts only out of a desire for power - the Doctor and his companions always have good intentions at heart.
