* ''Literature/HollowPlaces'' has Tyler. He only stole to feed his granddaughter, yet isn't bitter about the length of his sentence. [[spoiler: Too bad it ends up being for nothing, as the granddaughter is eventually killed by the woman who got custody after Tyler's imprisonment.]]

May involve an AssholeVictim on the receiving end, particularly if the JustifiedCriminal is presented as sympathetic for committing assault or even murder in the defense of someone else.

May involve an AssholeVictim on the receiving end, particularly if the JustifiedCriminal is presented as sympathetic for committing assault or even murder in the defense of someone else. The most justified examples also steal for survival and non-violently.

* The character of "Cricket" in ''Literature/{{Relativity}}'' can talk to insects, but no one will believe him. At first, he commands bugs to commit crimes just to prove he can do it. Later, however, he becomes homeless and jobless, and has the insects steal so he can feed himself.

* Zabuza of the Hidden Mist from ''Naruto'' could be considered this. A rogue ninja is usually considered the worst of the worst by the villages, selfish traitors that betrayed their oaths. Zabuza's goal was to be able to mount a rebellion to take down the Mizukage. Typical power hungry jerk, right? WRONG. When he was last a member of the Hidden Mist Village, the Village was still in its Bloody Mist phase, killing off useful bloodline families out of fear (or so it seemed at first), even if they had stopped forcing ninja students in the academy to kill one another in a survival of the fittest test. Zabuza's own adopted son/partner Haku was also had a powerful bloodline ability, so his rebellion could also have been to make life better for him. In other settings and stories, Zabuza could have been a rebel [[AntiHero Anti]]-[[HeroProtagonist]]!!

* ''Film/{{Armored}}'': Tyler is left to [[PromotionToParent raise his younger brother after the death of their parents]] and is about to lose the family house because of unpaid bills, which would force social services to place his brother with a foster family. This leaves him amenable to his godfather Mike's prodding that he partake in a multi-million dollar theft of their own armored money truck. He turns against them when they resort to killing innocent bystanders who were in the wrong place at the wrong time and spends the rest of the film [[TheSiege defending the truck from his colleagues]].

* ''CSINewYork'' had a season finale with a bank robber whose family was being held up until he robbed the bank [[spoiler:subverted later when you discover his family doesn't exist, and he was lying all along. The episode ends on a cliffhanger since he took Mac hostage. The first episode of the following seasons reveals that he does have a family, they just weren't in any danger (since he was the mastermind behind it all)]].
** Another episode of ''CSINewYork'' has [[spoiler: two young boys who were trying to get enough money to pay their mother's rent]]. They ended up being robbed by a much less sympathetic bank robber who was casing the bank they robbed and [[spoiler:shot one of them to steal the money. [[LaserGuidedKarma He ends up being run over in his escape attempt]] when the [=CSIs=] catch up with him]].
