* In the book ''The D- Poems of Jeremy Bloom: A Collection of Poems About School, Homework, and Life (Sort Of)'', one of the titular poems is about this trope and why anything that's "for your own good" is generally horrible and depressing.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'', Draco can't bring himself to ''kill'' Harry for tricking him into sacrificing [[spoiler:his false belief in blood purity]], but he can settle for thwarting all of Harry's plots and gloating that it was for his own good. The fact that it ''really is'' for Harry's own good (at least, in Draco's estimation) is only a bonus that occurs to him afterward.

* In many [[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau Conversion Bureau]] [[RecursiveFanfiction spin-off fics]] the Equestrians see their AssimilationPlot as noble and good because HumansAreTheRealMonsters. The PER take it further by forcibly ponifying people under the pretense of "saving" them, whether they want it [[BalefulPolymorph or not]]. It's pretty easy to see why detractors of the TCB Universe compare the ponies in these fic to [[ScaryDogmaticAliens conquistadors]] or [[GodwinsLaw Na]][[ANaziByAnyOtherName zis]].
