* In ''Manga/{{Tsukigasa}}'', while Kuroe never approved of thievery the robbers who saved him were surprised when he tried to make off with their maps and Tatsumi was surprised when he gave them to him to help arrest the criminals and Kuroe ''still'' wanted to turn himself in too. Ultimately it comes down to Kuroe being a righteous sort of person and wanting to protect Azuma, the criminal's next target.

* ''Literature/GhostStory'' reveals Molly Carpenter to be one of these. Harry- her teacher in magic and the BigGood who protected Chicago- has been murdered. [[spoiler: The truth is that he was trying to escape AFateWorseThanDeath by committing suicide, and asked her to assist him with it. Harry hired a sniper, Molly [[ItMakesSenseInContext erased his memories of the plan afterwards]], and everything went as planned. Except for the fact that, with [[TheDreaded Harry]] gone, a ''lot'' of supernatural predators that would otherwise have stayed away are descending upon Chicago, and the city's living defenders are left severely weakened and comparatively ignorant about the supernatural world. Also, Harry's TrueCompanions are traumatized by his death, and Molly has to live with the guilt of that ''and'' the pain of undergoing TrainingFromHell at the hands of a sadistic Fae to get strong enough to defeat said predators.]] She believes that all of that could have been prevented if she'd had the courage to tell someone else [[spoiler:what Harry was planning,]] and she's not wrong. Morals of the story? Do not let [[TheHeroDies the hero die]] or pledge UndyingLoyalty towards someone with depression.
