*** ''Awakening'' also lampshades the trope [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]] in one of the Outrealm missions: einjerhar Caeda tries to recruit one of the party members by asking if they're trying to support an ill mother and offering gold for medicine.

*** ''Awakening'' also lampshades the trope [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]] in one of the Outrealm missions: einjerhar Caeda tries to recruit one of the party members by asking if they're trying to support an ill mother and offering gold for medicine. This is actually a direct reference to ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Shadow Dragon]]'', where she asks the same question of recruitable character Roger; he's not (his parents having long since passed), but just having someone ''care'' about him is enough for him to change sides.

* Played with Leorio in HunterXHunter: introduced as greedy and money-obsessed, the man reveals he lost his childhood friend Pietro due to a treatable disease because Pietro's parents were poor. Now, he wants to become a doctor to give free healthcare to people in his friend's situation... but it turns out that becoming a doctor costs even ''more'' money, making him go to extreme ends to get funding. (He doesn't resort to crime, but he risks his life multiple times in the infamous hunter exams.)

* In ''MuhyoAndRoji'', Enchu's desire to support his sick and poor mother fuels his efforts to become an Executor. This is possibly deconstructed when the committee deciding whether he or Muhyo would be promoted was concerned about his preoccupation with his sick mother. Their concerns are not entirely unfounded, as her death, combined with his being passed over, triggers his FaceHeelTurn [[spoiler:as Teeki had planned when he killed her]].

* In 1969, psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg studied moral reasoning by presenting his subjects with a series of moral dilemmas and asking them if the people in the stories should (or shouldn't) have taken the actions they did and why. The most famous of these stories concerns a man whose wife desperately needs a drug which a local pharmacist has developed. However, the pharmacist is trying to make money off the drug and is charging far more for it than it costs to make. In the end, the man, having failed to obtain the drug through legitimate means (he hasn't been able to raise enough money and the pharmacist refuses to drop the price) breaks into the pharmacy and steals the drug.
