* In ''FanFic/OriginStory'', Alex Harris justifies not fleeing to some other country because she's an American, and this is America and she's not going to be run out of her own country. Besides that, she doesn't know how to speak any other languages. She also justifies finally taking a stand against SHIELD, the Avengers, and the Registration Act itself in Miami because she's tired of running and its time someone stands up to the bullies who are running the US government.

In later volumes, he plays this straight, recognizing that he's essentially living the life in the Medieval-ish fantasy world, and that resurrecting at this time would be unnecessarily selfish and pointless.

* ''Film/ThePatriot'' has a rare villainous example. Colonel Tavington, who has little regard for TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar, agrees to take responsibility for his own war crimes while hunting down the Colonial Militia so Cornwallis can keep his record clean. He is unconcerned that this will dishonor him back home in England, since he has already decided to settle in America once the war is over.
