** Germany has "Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit" (Unity and Justice and Liberty).[[note]]Perhaps it's worth mentioning that this phrase most famously occurs in the third stanza of the Song of the Germans (Das Lied der Deutschen). You know, the song whose first stanza starts with "Deutschland, Deutschland über Alles." The third stanza (only) is the modern national anthem of Germany.[[/note]][[note]]It should be noted that the Song was from a time when there was [[AllTheLittleGermanies no German state]] and the songwriter just wanted to emphasize how important the existence of such a state was for him. The song was not meant to be aggressive against other countries, that's one reason why it was used as national anthem during the Weimar Republic, but Nazi Germany only used the first stanza.[[/note]] Modern Germany, as one might recall, had a very hard time in getting to where it is now. Its legal system is noted for trying to strike a balance between the extremes of France and Britain in substance (in format, it's all French) and is ''very'' concerned with ensuring that the rule of law is applied consistently and fairly.

** Superman is actually a subversion of this though. He's mainly concerned with ForHappiness, spending most of his time doing random acts of kindness like stopping floods, chasing off supervillains, and plucking kittens out of trees. He doesn't much care what supervillains do as long as they're not hurting anyone (or being [[ItsPersonal Lex Luthor]]). Writers have him bandy the term "justice" around a lot, but crimefighters like {{Franchise/Batman}} and TheFlash are a lot more focused on criminal justice than Superman is.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has Universe 11, the Universe of Justice. There the God of Destruction and the Pride Troopers fight for justice, against all injustices big, medium, and small. No crime will go unresolved in Universe 11, be it a kitten near power lines or Goku potentially dooming the multiverse.

* The much-criticized ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueCryForJustice'' has a lot of the characters saying that they "want justice!" despite the fact that they are really just out for revenge.
* While the ComicBook/XMen have a somewhat more original concept, and had some of the first [[AntiVillain antivillains]] in American comics, the promos for the cartoons would talk about using mutant powers "for the benefit of mankind."

-->No, it wasn't. But the world wasn't a fair place, was it? And I had more reason to know it than most people twice my age. The world wasn't nice, and it wasn't fair. People who didn't deserve it suffered and died every single day.
