* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' has Mr. Ishiguro, who replaces his incompetent uncle Mr. Kornada, backs a referendum allowing the Jean colonists to vote for robot liberation, abides by the results, supports the police in their inquiries on his uncle's dealings, and makes it a point to show the Mayor he hopes to make this trope the galactic standard.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has Crassius Curio. He's a Councilor for Great House Hlaalu, the Dunmeri great house priding itself on [[ProudMerchantRace its mercantile and trade skills]]. However, it also comes with a heaping dose of {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s and lots of [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Chronic Backstabbing]]. Most of its councilors are in the pocket of the Camonna Tong, Morrowind's native [[TheMafia mafia-esque]] [[TheSyndicate Crime Organization]]. Curio, his [[LovableSexManiac creepy predilections]] aside, is actively working to clean up the corruption within the House and is one of only two councilors above the influence of the Camonna Tong. (The other is in permanent hiding, while Curio acts like an [[ObfuscatingStupidity easily manipulated fool]] to stay beneath their radar.) In one particular example, when completing quests for Odral Helvi, you can report his orders to Crassius to receive alternate, less morally offensive ways to complete the quests (and eventually even get Helvi arrested).

* Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure: Between Parts 1 and 2 Robert E. O. Speedwagon discovered oil and became insanely rich. He established the Speedwagon Foundation, invested his money into numerous successful business adventures, cared for his best friend's son and grandson, and invested countless dollars into helping the poor and hungry. In Part 2, he funds the fight against the Vampires, and numerous agents from the Foundation team up with the Nazis to banish the undead menace. (In Part 2, the Nazis were the only group outside of the Speedwagon alliance to know about the horrors of the Pillar Men, and both groups were willing to set aside their differences to stop them from eliminating humanity.) From then on, the Foundation provides aid to the future heroes of Jojos, even after Speedwagon passes. In part 3, Kakyoin and Iggy have their serious wounds treated by a doctor from the foundation, and the Joestars can rely on them to fund transportation.

* In the [[Literature/HonorHarrington Honoverse]], Klaus Hauptmann is an arrogant, aggressive, judgmental and vindictive human being in general, but he is also scrupulously honest in his dealings as the head of the Hauptman Cartel, the largest commercial/industrial combine in Manticore. Part of it is just rolled up in his pride at his reputation of being the wealthiest individual in the system by legitimate means, but even Honor Harrington, who was so infuriated by his actions that she threatened to ''kill him'' if he followed through on a threat[[note]]although to be fair, the threat ''was'' was to [[ParentsInDistress blackmail her parents]] and destroy their professional reputations, which plays against this trope, and the threat to kill him took the form of a legal challenge to a duel[[/note]], acknowledged that he likely had nothing to do with the corruption and treason she had discovered on the part of some of his underlings. When SpacePirates begin to attack Manticoran merchant ships passing through the Silesian Confederacy, Hauptmann, who always claims to care for his employees, puts his money where his mouth is and instructs every merchant captain in his employ to present Hauptmann's generous ransom offer to any pirate who boards a Hauptmann merchant ship; even more than just the promise, he ''means it''.
