* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': Pegasus develops into this sequel series, to the point of becoming the closest thing to the BigGood in the series. Even then, his underhanded tactics in the original was more personal than buisiness.

* Wrestling/BulletClub's unprovoked and indiscriminate interference during Wrestling/ColtCabana and Wrestling/JayLethal's world title match at ''Global Wars'' would normally be grounds for suspension in Wrestling/RingOfHonor but Wrestling/NigelMcGuinness declined to go through with it because the group makes ROH a lot of money. So he instead fined them and used ''that'' money to hire more security.[[/folder]]

** When Tony fell way off the wagon and lost Stark International to Obadiah Stane, most of his key employees ''still'' sided with Tony and resigned from Stane. Rhodey and the Irwins later allowed a recovering Stark to join them in their new venture in California, which eventually led to Tony founding Start Enterprises. In fact, the only major employee to stay on with Stane was security chief Vic Martinelli, who being in WitnessProtection for standing up to the mob, didn't have a lot of options.

** Hiroshi Sato became one of the richest men in Republic City from running a legitimate business. He's apparently passing on his ethics to his SpoiledSweet daughter. [[spoiler: Subverted in that he's not only an Equalist, but also because he framed his competitor, Cabbage Corp, making him abhorrently immoral.]]

* 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 threw on a threat, 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''.

* Jean Valjean in ''Literature/LesMiserables''.

He is so popular that he is elected mayor (after refusing the honour multiple times). He is wrecked with guilt after finding out that a woman he allowed to be fired based on rumours ended up destitute and eventually abandons his business to save an innocent man from prison.

* [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]], CEO of Stark Enterprises, is this once he quit being a weapons dealer. Well, [[DependingOnTheWriter in his "better" portrayals]], at least; issues like his involvement in the events of the ''Comicbook/CivilWar'' series cast doubts on the integrity of his corporate practices. But even as distasteful as weapons manufacturing is to a lot of people, he was a pretty honest guy with those, too. Making for the US Armed forces, not (knowingly) ever providing for terrorists, etc. For instance, in a famous story, "Doomquest," when Stark learned that an underling sold military tech to DoctorDoom, he instantly fired him, refunded Doom's money, tried to prevent Doom's minion from taking the goods anyway, and then personally confronted Doom in his own castle to get them back.\\
