* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'''s episode "Breakfast Cheese", the Titans treat the H.I.V.E. loitering near a "no loitering" sign as an excuse to beat them up. This is even what kicks off the plot of the episode, as Starfire realizes that pounding someone into oblivion just for loitering is way too harsh, and that the Titans have gotten more bloodthirsty thanks to all the fighting.

* In ''Discworld/{{Thud}}!'', Sam Vimes is steadfastly unwilling to ever be home late for his daily book reading with his son, and in one scene his guards end up manipulating traffic just to give him a clear route home. Vimes does this to avoid a slippery slope, however; "If you start breaking the rules for good reasons, you'll soon start breaking them for bad reasons."

** Other example of AI simple-mindedness: you do something bad (stealing is most common example, but also offensive behaviour, etc. etc.), you are attacked. In other words, people try to kill you. When you are the arch-mage of the Mages Guild, and you take a fork from a table, [[DisproportionateRetribution you are expelled from the guild and everybody tries to kill you]].

# '''Writers invoke ValuesDissonance for [[RuleOfFunny Comedic]] [[PlayedForLaughs Effect]].''' A lot of the well-written animated shows, even dating back decades, would do this. And {{Sitcom}}s will do this as well. ArsonMurderAndJaywalking or SelectiveEnforcement is often invoked here.

* In ''Webcomic/PerfectionEngine'', the Eidolons —angelic beings prevalent in the story— strive for a perfect society of perfect order and morality. As such, all citizens are subject to "corrective measures" should they show any flaw whatsoever, including inner or outer expressions of negativity. One is literally not allowed to experience negative emotions or thoughts towards themselves or others, lest they undergo said corrective measures if caught.
