* In the 1993 film ''Film/TheFugitive'', while on the run, Dr. Kimble is in a hospital as part of his search for the one-armed man. He notices that a child has been misdiagnosed and will die if not given immediate surgery. He changes the orders on the kid's chart and saves his life. The problem with this? He was masquerading as a janitor at the time. [[spoiler: This ultimately works to Kimble's benefit, as [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist the US Marshall assigned to recapturing him]] begins to question whether someone who'd take a risk like that for a complete stranger is ''really'' guilty of murder.]]

* Defied in ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria''. Velvet has one goal - kill the BigBad - and anything else is wasted time. She will consider doing jobs for tangible progress towards this goal, but since she's the main character, these become main quest objectives. Sidequests? The rest of the party has to drag her into them kicking and screaming.

The rest of the party has to drag her into them kicking and screaming. It's not until right before the final dungeon that the right combination of CharacterDevelopment and [[TakeYourTime lack of time pressure]] coincide to persuade Velvet to take the blinkers off and let her companions resolve some of their personal quests.
