* In ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheUnwoundFuture'', [[spoiler:Layton's nemesis Don Paolo makes what he claims is a temporary HeelFaceTurn. Although his overarching reason for helping the heroes is justified -- he wants to know the truth about the accident which killed the woman he loved -- he invokes this trope when he makes CrazyAwesome modifications to Layton's car (enabling it to do things like turn into a glider). He insists that he only did it for the sake of Layton's adopted daughter, [[DistressedDamsel who has been kidnapped]].]]

** 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."
