* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' Marietta Edgecombe is torn between her loyalty to Cho and her loyalty to the Ministry.

* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'': The CutSong "We Know Better", from an earlier draft where Elsa was the villain, would have had this for Anna. The song's DarkReprise shows her learning that some friends she often hangs out with are being cruel to Elsa, and when they call her a "freak" in front of her, Elsa snaps and is hinted to attack one of them. Anna sides with her friends and puts all the blame on Elsa, which would serve as the latter's CynicismCatalyst.

** He provides the trope quote when he points out to Lady Catelyn Stark that the oaths about honoring your family and honoring your King are forced to be helplessly contradictory sooner or later. If you've sworn to defend both the king and the innocent, what do you do when the king massacres the innocent?
** As he revealed to Brienne, Jaime broke his oath and killed the Mad King when he decided to explode huge quantities of wildfire hidden beneath King's Landing. This action saved 500,000 lives but came at the price of his honor and universal contempt for soiling his office.
