* ''FanFic/ThePhoenixoftheWasteland'': The Kaiser's Praetorian Guard is fond of this. The story's falling action includes them bringing a lobotomized [[FatBastard Kaiser Shattered Dreams]] over to Starlight, then burning him alive him in front of her ([[NominalHero which she thoroughly enjoys]]).

* In the last issue of ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}'' the Secret Service has enough of [[PresidentEvil the Smiler's]] shit and refuse to kill Spider for him, neither do they lift a finger when he's arrested.

** Even in backstory Raven was grooming freelance assassins for the job, only waiting until his future career and retirement were assured before finally choosing to let one of them get by him. (And his employer ''knew it''.) The peculiar circumstances of the tournament just provided Raven with a perfect opportunity to legally and openly kill his employer ''and'' set himself up for life just by doing so.

** The culture of Westeros generally takes a very dim view of this kind of thing, regardless of which side is left writing or singing the histories. There is, however, one notable exception. When the last members of House Durrandon decided to defy the Targaryens, their last remaining guards decided they'd rather not repeat the lesson learned from [[KillItWithFire Harrenhal]], thanks, after they learned of the defeat last Storm King (and his whole army) on the field. They promptly gave up the walled city and keep of Stormsend, after having captured, stripped and then wrapped their stubbornly defiant "Storm Queen", Argella, in chains... And, then unceremoniously dumped her at the feet of her future husband, Orys Baratheon. Although they're not lauded for these actions, they're conspicuously not condemned for them, either. Because what the hell else do you do against a real, live [[WeaponOfMassDestruction fully-grown dragon]] capable of melting stone (Meraxes, ridden by Rhaenys Targaryen), [[KnowWhenToFoldEm when all you have is a pike line]] on top of some [[NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight suddenly very flimsy-feeling walls]], since most of your army buddies have already become charcoal ''and'' you've got a city of civilians to defend?

* Twice in ''FanFic/MyMirrorSwordAndShield'':
** The Knights of Round were honor bound to protect Emperor Lelouch. Resentment stewed over by Lelouch's refusal to sack his Japanese knight, liberal policies, suspicion that he killed his sister with Lelouch's decision to end the overinflated nobility being the straw that broke the camel's back. Only three of the Knight remained loyal while the rest of them attempted a failed coup.
** Beknowst to Emperor Lelouch, his most loyal knight, Suzaku worked his way to the top in order to kill him. [[BecomingTheMask But he ended up loosing his nerve]] [[spoiler: and fakes Lelouch's assassination to protect him.]]
