* Harry Ebbing, an arc villain from ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'' is an [[CorruptCorporateExecutive energy tycoon of loose morals]] who is nevertheless beloved by all his employees for the [[AFatherToHisMen generous salaries and benefits he gives all his workers and his insistence on personally addressing any of the problems they bring to him.]] When one of Harry's employees threatens to get the FBI involved over a scheme to black out the state of Florida to create a local monopoly, his [[TheStarscream second-in-command]] has the employee beaten and anally raped by street punks, which sets The Punisher on their tail. The whistleblower returns to throw himself at his boss's mercy, and is promptly forgiven.

** In the 2017 Christmas episode, "Twice Upon a Time", the First Doctor holds this view. To him, by any objective measure Evil ''should'' prevail, as Good simply requires too many things, like self-sacrifice, that make for bad survival traits. Yet good is often the victor in the end. He acknowledges that figuring out ''why'' this is was one of the factors that led to his leaving Gallifrey. When the person he's telling this to suggests that maybe what keeps it all together is a single bloke timing around helping where he can, the Doctor proves ObliviousToHisOwnDescription and dismisses the idea as a fairy tale.
