* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The Hound's massive, AxCrazy brother Ser Gregor attacks Ser Loras after losing a joust to him. Sandor jumps in and blocks the blow because he hates his brother, not because he cares about Ser Loras. He ''is'' impressed with Loras for taking his asshole brother down a peg, and is unwilling to allow the young knight to be murdered for it.
--> '''Sandor:''' And this is all your idea? Seems every bad idea has some Lannister cunt behind it.
--> '''Tyrion:''' And some Clegane cunt to help them see it through.

* In ''Series/NCIS'' Season 3 episode "Iced", the team discovers a Marine was killed as part of a hood's plot to take over a gang, but they do not have enough proof to go to court. So Gibbs keeps the hood under interrogation, while the rest of the gang is shown the proof that they have been manipulated by the hood, and then the latter is dropped off at his gang's hideout. The next morning, the hood's body is found in a dumpster, killed gang execution-style.

* The whole sacred purpose of the Guardians of the Veil in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'', along with other ways of keeping other Mages on the straight-and-narrow. They also believe this makes them ritually and spiritually unclean, and members vary between ''NoPlaceForMeThere'' and hoping the Hieromagus (who will, notably, '''not'' be a Guardian, as they will be pure and righteous) will redeem them for the good they've done through bad means.
