* In ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', Prince Serg is so [[UpToEleven outrageously]] [[TheCaligula psychopathic]] that his father considers it necessary to both start an unprovoked war and then lose it deliberately just so Prince Serg and his supporters can be killed in the process.

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'': A minor example in ''Stardust Crusaders''. When Kakyoin and Polnareff are fighting J. Geil, they see the Hanged Man appear in people's eyes (it can hurt people by attacking their reflections - and the human cornea is a reflective surface) on a few occasions. To their dismay, the best way to protect themselves is to kick sand in those people's eyes. It makes them look like assholes, but it beats getting stabbed or having to hurt someone innocent.

* Played with in the ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' series. The Metroids which kill everything they encounter and are a notoriously difficult to control potential bioweapon prey on and keep in check the [[GrayGoo X-Parasites]], which kill everything ''period'', reproduce asexually like bacteria, [[ItCanThink absorb knowledge from their victims]], and are an ''impossible to control'' potential bioweapon that could easily overtake and destroy all life in existence. The catch is Samus doesn't learn this until [[NiceJobBreakingItHero she's already eradicated the Metroids]]: the entire plot of ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' involves her nearly dying, being hunted by a superpowered clone of herself, and trying to stay alive on a [[AbandonedLaboratory dead space station]] long enough to wipe the things out.

* In one CarlBarks story, Donald Duck chooses to leap into a pool of sharks rather than confront Daisy and her sewing friend [[ItMakesSenseInContext about the crochets he made.]] He cites this trope word to word.

* ''Series/TheATeam'', "[[Recap/TheATeamS2E23CurtainCall Curtain Call]]". As Murdock's condition worsens and Face and Tawnia still haven't returned with medical supplies, Hannibal tells B.A. that he's going out to look for them, and if he can't find them, he'll find Decker instead and bring him back. The sheer fact that Hannibal thinks bringing the team's archnemesis directly to their hiding spot is the better option (and that B.A. doesn't argue) is a big sign of how bad the situation has become.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' ''Brood War'', Jim Raynor and his allies side with Kerrigan against the Earth Directorate forces poised to conquer the sector. This is a case where the good guys misjudged which evil was the lesser one.

This is a case where the good guys misjudged which evil was the lesser one. Or did they? No one can know now as the UED simply didn't get the chance to prove themselves to be better or worse rulers than the Koprulu Sector's natives.

* In ''[[FanFic/CissneisPath Cissnei's Path]]'', a VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII fanfic, Crimson (Cissnei) justifies this as the reason they shouldn't kill Rufus Shinra in Rocket Town unless absolutely necessary. Rufus is smart and rational enough to keep his priorities straight, whereas if he dies then either Scarlet or Heideggar would get the Company. Both are war-mongers and having complete control of the company would be giving them a blank check to create weapons of destruction and attack places that gave the group shelter.
