* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', when Aogiri storms Anteiku to kidnap Kaneki, Ayato swiftly takes Touka out before she can resist, and disdainfully declares that she's of no use to them. Then when Touka infiltrates Aogiri to rescue Kaneki, Ayato confronts her and once again overpowers her, going as far as to devour her kagune. Later, Kaneki realises that Ayato has been trying to protect Touka the whole time by hurting her just enough to keep her out of the real fight. It is implied that he was angry at her for attending school because he thought she was putting herself in unnecessary danger, and the reason he left Anteiku to join Aogiri was because he wanted to become stronger, believing he wouldn't be able to protect her if he was weak.

** Although initially denying caring for Touka, he's shown watching over her. He also starts using a rabbit mask when he kills, convincing the CCG that he is the Rabbit ghoul who killed two CCG investigators, successfully diverting attention away from Touka, who was the actual killer.

* Manga/TigerMask has a habit of doing this:
** Before entering the World Maskmen Tournament (where all the other wrestlers are Tiger's Cave wrestlers that are there ''specifically'' to kill him), and knowing there's a good chance he'll get killed, he insults the rooster of the Japan Wrestling Association so they won't consider him a friend if he doesn't survive. Thankfully, [[spoiler:Baba]] ultimately sees through it and enters the tournament himself in disguise, saving his life.
** Having just learned that Black V is [[KungFuProofMook immune to submission moves]], Tiger Mask gives a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to aspiring wrestler Teppei Oiwa and acts like an asshole to his love interest Ruriko (who knows his real identity and is a friend of Teppei), both to [[SecretTestOfCharacter test Teppei's resolve to become a wrestler]] and make sure Ruriko won't suffer if he gets killed as he expects (this happens before he figures a way around Black V's rubber body). Teppei sees through it with ease.
** When Tiger's Cave [[spoiler:takes Kenta as hostage to force him to walk into their base and get lynched]], Tiger Mask repeats the performance from the World Maskmen Tournament. [[GenreSavvy This time they all realize immediately what he's trying to do]], and, [[TrueCompanions as his friends]], [[BigDamnHeroes come to his rescue]].
** This is the reason for the TrainingFromHell: in this series ProWrestlingIsReal, so a wrestler ''needs'' to be brought to his limits if he's to survive a match. No better example is Tiger Mask training to Teppei after defeating Black V, in which he imposes him hard exercises and motivates him with what he himself calls "fear of death" so that in a real match Teppei will be ready.

** [=McGonagall=] has a moment of this in the very first Harry Potter book. She catches Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco out of bed after hours and takes away ''one hundred and fifty points'', and from ''her own house'' at that! (She also takes fifty points from Draco, though, since he too had to be out of bed after-hours in order to even know what the other three were doing; there was no other way he could then have informed the professor about their rule-breaking.) Her reaction is justified when you consider: one, during this particular school year there was a lethal monster in the school in addition to Voldemort being after the stone, and ultimately [=McGonagall=] doesn't want the students to consider wandering around after-hours to be acceptable. Two, part of the reasons the Slytherins all come off as such jerks is because Snape plays favorites and never takes any points away from a Slytherin student, no matter how awful. [=McGonagall=]'s willingness to cost her own house the House Cup, by contrast, teaches the Gryffindor students that ethical behavior is determined by the choices you make, and not the groups to which you belong. Three, the students were willing to break rules was ''in part'' because Snape only ever punished Harry for breaking rules out of a personal vendetta, so the students understandably came to the conclusion that the rules couldn't be trusted. The fact that [=McGonagall=] had a legitimate reason to punish them ''and'' the fact that she punished Draco along with them (something Snape would never have done) drove home for the students the fact that just because one teacher is a jerk, doesn't mean they ''all'' are.

* Many interpretations of [[Literature/TheFourGospels Judas Iscarot selling Jesus out to the Pharisees]] imply that Judas was hoping Jesus would use the incident to incite a Jewish revolt and overthrow the Roman occupation of Judea (Judas and lots of other lower-class citizens saw the Pharisees as LesCollaborateurs). Naturally, [[BadassPacifist Jesus refused]].
