* Reporting a rape to the police. Thanks to deeply ingrained misogyny, even police officers sometimes engage in victim blaming, and judges and juries are often more interested in the victim's history of consensual sex than in the rapist's history of rape. And having to talk about it in such a context doesn't make the trauma any better.

* Reporting a rape to the police.police, and then taking it to court. Thanks to deeply ingrained misogyny, even police officers sometimes engage in victim blaming, and judges and juries are often more interested in the victim's history of consensual sex than in the rapist's history of rape. And having to talk about it in such a context doesn't make the trauma any better. As proven by cases where it only took one brave woman to encourage the serial rapist's ''other'' victims to testify, it can be worth it.

* ''Film/WonderWoman'' leaves Themyscira behind and enters the patriarchal rest of the world to save mankind. Even if there wasn't a world war going on at the time, it would be a CrapsackWorld in comparison to her home. [[spoiler: Ares even tries to tempt her to join him by showing her how beautiful the world could be without man, but she resists.]]

* Franchise/{{Superman}} gets hit by this trope ''hard'' in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. His attempts to do good are mostly met by supsicion and even outright derision. He goes into temporary exile after [[spoiler:ComicBook/LexLuthor bombs the Capitol]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' {{Subverted|Trope subverts}} this with its [[PacifistRun Pacifist Route]]. You're stuck at [[LowLevelRun level 1]] for the game if you don't kill anything ([[{{Justified|Trope}} justified]] in-game by [[spoiler: explaining that Undertale's version of experience and levels are actually measures of how much of a cold, murderous bastard you are]]) and even random encounters become {{Puzzle Boss}}es where you have to find a way to de-escalate the situation and spare the enemy instead of killing them (all while they're trying to kill you). Even Flowey wonders how long you'll last before you give in to violence. However, all that hard work and perseverance ultimately [[EarnYourHappyEnding rewards you with the best ending in the game]]. Meanwhile, on the No Mercy run, you may smash pretty much any regular enemy in one or two hits, but the two actual bosses you face are incredibly harder and more frustrating than everything the other two runs throw at you ''combined'', so BeingEvilSucks far more than being good.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'': Goliath's Clan constantly put human lives above their own. Their reward is being called monsters, having objects thrown at them and sometimes an organization with full military troops seeking to either kill them or capture and dissect them. On the other hand, they have a fanclub and the humans that ''know'' them, such as Elsa and [[FriendlyEnemy Xanatos]] think otherwise.

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'':
** Solid Snake is well-aware of this. Unlike Big Boss, he pulls through everything life threw at him, but his perseverance kept him from going down the same path as his father. While others want to save the world, he does it his way. Even if it means "living like a pariah".
** Big Boss gets hit with this even harder. Everything he did was for the sake of his country and The Boss, but no matter what, life found a way to take everything from him. When he finds out the whole world wants him dead, he decides he's had enough and creates Outer Heaven. That being said, Big Boss ultimately realizes how selfish his goal was, and wants to fulfill The Boss' will correctly. When he sees Snake one last time, he commends him for not falling down the same path he did.
