The Javert does not realize that the hero is either [[ClearMyName wrongly accused]], or has already redeemed himself for crimes done long ago. Perhaps the Javert simply doesn't care, as [[KnightTemplar the law is the law]], and one is either [[BlackAndWhiteMorality on the side of the law, or on the side of crime]]. Thus, the Javert is the type of person who [[LawfulNeutral obeys the letter of the law, but not the spirit of the law]]. Inspector Javert may be the reason the hero has to keep moving among AdventureTowns. Often, the only way to slow him down is to defeat [[BiggerBad other violent criminals]], then leave them for the Inspector to arrest and process before he can resume the chase.

* For years [[ComicBook/XMen Bishop]] was determined to prove ComicBook/{{Gambit}} would one day betray the X-Men, regardless of how many heroic acts Gambit would perform. This plot thread was laid to rest when the traitor was revealed to be Onslaught. During the ''Messiah CompleX'' arc, he became this to Hope (because on ''his'' timeline she grew up to be a villain) and in doing so (by means of ''trying to kill her when she was only minutes born'' and refusing any other alternatives) he jumped the MoralEventHorizon.

** The entire government of Gallifrey is this to The Doctor from as far back as the Second Doctor's story ''Battlefield'' and have escalated to truly monstrous UngratefulBastard levels by ''Face The Raven''. This has come to bite them in the ass, however, because their constant belief that The Doctor conspires against them has him declare "ThenLetMeBeEvil" on the following episode, ''Heaven Sent'', and ''seriously'' tried to do so.

* The hotel concierge in ''[[Film/HomeAlone Home Alone 2]]'' is religiously devoted to busting Kevin for "credit card fraud"(ie using his dad's credit card without permission) so much so that he threatens to call the police on Kevin, thereby scaring him into the streets, instead of contacting a social services agency and kindly asking Kevin about the matter. When Peter and Kate show up at the hotel, they're quick to chew him out over it.

*** It certainly is complex - the lead-up to his suicide goes on for several pages, as we watch him struggle with a dilemma he can barely process. He seems to finally get the idea that the law is maybe too harsh on convicts: one of his last acts is to write down a list of pragmatic reforms for the local prison, such as suggesting that they should stop making prisoners stand around barefoot in the freezing cold [[PragmaticVillainy because when they get sick it's expensive to treat them]]. But this is, perhaps, the essence of his dilemma: he has operated under the belief that "law" and "good" are the same entity, but in this instance, they're clearly not. Letting Valjean go is moral, but unlawful; imprisoning him again is lawful, but immoral. No matter what he does, he betrays his purpose; since he can't serve his purpose, he finds no reason to live.
