* The Creator/OHenry story, "A Retrieved Reformation", is all about this trope; a safecracker escapes from jail, adopts an alias, heads west, and gets a job as a shoe salesman, and gets engaged to a bank manager's daughter. Just as a police detective shows up in town looking for someone like him, a young child gets locked in the safe. He quickly starts work cracking the safe open, knowing it'll give him away to the cops. At the end of the stories, the detective knows damn well that he's the safecracker he's looking for, but pretends to not recognize him because he's obviously reformed.

[[folder: Tabletop Game]] * ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'': This trope was mentioned in a Gagaga Academia Tospedia issue. Over the course of his journey, "Bujin - Yamato" witnessed people on the surface suffering from the tyranny of the gods and acted on it, strengthening the suspicions of the Kami dwelling in Takama-ga-hara, including the Supreme Kami.

* When the crew of the Enterprise has to go to a hospital to rescue Chekov in ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'', [=McCoy=] is horrified by what he sees the 20th century doctors doing, ("UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition of medicine") and stops to help patients. Admittedly, the "stop to help" part doesn't take much time (he deals with a woman's kidney failure by giving her a couple of pills) but it still (a) potentially draws attention to what's supposed to be a covert mission and (b) has the possibility of changing history.
