* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Doctor usually claims to be a simple traveler, or perhaps "an idiot with a box." The fact that he's saved countless lives, inspired civilizations, killed entire species, and is President of planet Earth is usually only mentioned as an afterthought, if it's mentioned at all.
--->'''The Doctor:''' Old-fashioned heroes only exist in old-fashioned storybooks, Clara.\\
'''Clara:''' What about you?\\
'''The Doctor:''' Me?\\
'''Clara:''' Yeah. You. You stop bad things happening every minute of every day. That sounds pretty heroic to me.\\
'''The Doctor:''' ''[modestly]'' Just passing the time.
** Bill, the Twelfth Doctor's final companion, notes that this claim is a little ridiculous when he flies around in a bright blue police box that says "call for assistance" and "always available" on the side. The Doctor is flabbergasted, and can't find a way to brush it off.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' Duke didn't rescue Yuri from falling off of the DiscOneFinalDungeon; he just went to retrieve his CoolSword. Never mind him having (mostly) healed Yuri from a bad wound and only leaving once Yuri wakes up ''a week later''.

* In one dubbed episode of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Seto Kaiba actually ''says'' "IDidWhatIHadToDo" to justify saving Tea/Anzu from the enemy. Otherwise he's always helping Yugi out because [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou only he can be the one to beat him]], or because Yugi saves his kidnapped brother and Kaiba helps because he "owes him". It gets to the point where [[LampshadeHanging the heroes just stop believing him]].

* The ending of ''MegaManStarForce 2'' has Solo saving Geo from the [[BigBad Big Bad's]] exploding base while Geo was out cold after defeating the LoadBearingBoss. His excuse? "Your body was blocking my way, so I moved it."

->'''Rouge''': That was so unexpected. So unlike you, Shadow, to come and rescue me. But your ability to use Chaos Control certainly comes in handy.\\
'''Shadow''': You know, I didn't come to save you, I came back for the Chaos Emeralds.\\
'''Rouge''': Yeah, yeah! But then again that's not the whole story, is it?

** This is [[AloofBigBrother Sesshoumaru's]] favourite tactic when getting involved in his brother's troubles:
*** When Inuyasha's SuperpoweredEvilSide goes out of control and even Kagome's voice can't bring him back, Sesshoumaru appears and beats Inuyasha into submission before explaining to Kagome how to bring him out of it. When the gang demands to know why he helped, he claims it's because he's the only one allowed to defeat him but there's no point doing it when Inuyasha's too out of his mind to even understand who's defeated him.

*** He saves Kohaku from Byakuya, claiming he's only there to cut away an annoying scent, and protects Kohaku for the rest of the story. However, this occurs shortly after Mouryoumaru insults Kagura's HeroicSacrifice to save Kohaku as being in vain, leading to Sesshoumaru promising himself to make sure her death wasn't in vain.

*** His excuses do eventually stop: when everyone's struggling with the most powerful evil in history, Sesshoumaru finally openly protects Inuyasha and his friends.

* In ''Series/BabylonFive'', G'Kar rescues Catherine Sakai after her ship is disabled and light-years away from help. When she asks why, he responds "Why not?" After a bit of banter, he elaborates, stating that it cost him nothing to save her, that her death would do nothing to advance his goals, and so he saw no reason not to do it. Bear in mind this occurred in the first season, before CharacterDevelopment set in and he was still more than a bit of an AntiVillain.
