* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect'': A full [[TheParagon Paragon]] Shepard, oh so much. Taken UpToEleven in the sequel. No-one is forcing you to pick every paragon option, whether it's played straight or averted depends on the player. [[NoPointsForNeutrality But, then again...]] One of your squadmates in the second game, Samara, went through a situation like this when chasing down a Nihlus, a [[JudgeJuryAndExecutioner Spectre]] [[ContinuityNod you worked with in the previous game]]. As he killed a civilian, Samara was dedicated to killing him, due to her Justicar Code. Nihlus escaped by offering the choice of [[FriendOrIdolDecision killing him, while an innocent die, or saving the innocent and letting Nihlus escape.]] The Justicar Code explicitly states that the protection of the innocent outweighs all else, so she saved the individual while letting Nihlus evade her. She considered Nihlus a WorthyOpponent for thinking that up.

* 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.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'': In "Inside Man", Ben chooses to save a rebelling SlaveMook over preventing the Dna-liens from getting away with an object they plan to use to destroy Earth. Kevin, Gwen and even said Mook disapproved, the latter stating Earth is doomed and [[IAmAMonster he's stuck as this abomination]]. Luckily, Ben has a say in both matters.

* Subverted in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' - during a chase with a HYDRA agent who assassinates Dr. Erskine and then runs away, Steve Rogers (after receiving the Super Soldier Serum) chases down the agent. The agent tries to distract him by [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy throwing a child into the river]], but the child, as it turns out, can swim, and tells Steve to continue going after the agent whilst the child saves himself.

* ''Series/TheATeam'': The team is always on the run from the military, but never seem to find a reason to flee the country. Instead they travel the country helping people everywhere, sometimes escaping in the nick of time.
** This was actually explained in ThePilot. They stay in U.S. because they are Americans and it's their country.

** One particular example is in "[[Recap/TheATeamS1E6BlackDayAtBadRock Black Day at Bad Rock]]." The team have successfully gotten B.A. treated and locked the sheriff and his deputy in their own jail, ensuring they will not be able to catch them. They are heading out of town to avoid Lynch when Hannibal realizes that an outlaw motorcycle gang, the Barbarians, will be coming against the town to get their leader back. They turn the van around.
