* A variant is used in ''[[Literature/AncillaryJustice Ancillary Mercy]]'' when the protagonists discuss why [[TheEmpire the Raadch]] is currently embroiled in a civil war, and the subject is raised whether or not the [[HigherTechSpecies Presger]] might have caused it to weaken humanity. Translator Zeiat (an ArtificialHuman created by the Presger to serve as an ambassador) says this is very unlikely, because if the Presger ''wanted'' to destroy humanity they'd do it in a much more direct, artistic and entertaining fashion than inciting a civil war behind the scenes (for reference, a Presger ''handgun'' is capable of destroying human starships with a single shot. Zeiat is most likely not lying).

* In the second ''{{Mistborn}}'' book, apparent [[TheStarscream Starscream]] Zane continually tries to kill [[spoiler: his father]] [[AristocratsAreEvil Straff]], but only because it's what Straff expects, as it's what he'd do if their positions were reversed. Zane never says the trope line out loud, but he does think it to himself during his POV sections.
