* ''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.

* 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. 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.

* This is the central theme of Literature/TheWitcher. No matter which side wins, in the end one of two evils prevails. This is the main reason Geralt prefers to not get involved in such conflicts.

Geralt himself doesn't believe that there are lesser evils, it's only an excuse people make to justify their bad deeds.

* On TheSimpsons the episode "Love Is A Many Strangled Thing" revealed that Homer's strangling Bart has actually been keeping some of Bart's worst tendencies in check. However the same thing happened on Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie where Homer and Marge gave Bart a legitimate punishment only to let him off the hook. When this happens again in Postcards from the Wedge causing Homer and Marge to let Bart fend for himself, it resulted in Bart attempting to destroy Springfield Elementary to get their attention.

* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', when [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen]] takes over Gongmen City, he turns the approaching engagement party of his former fiancé [[SwansASwimming Lady Lianne]] and Lord Juan (whom he [[MurderTheHypotenuse murders]]) into a trap for the invited nobility of China. He forces Lianne to help in springing the trap so that he can [[SadisticChoice force the nobility to support him in his conquest of China]]. When the time comes for that, and the Furious Five and Po are imprisoned, Lianne reluctantly goes along with the plan, knowing that should [[NinjaMaiden Jade]] fail to release the heroes, then the success of Shen's plan would mean the least amount of casualties. Fortunately, Jade releases the heroes who then free the nobility.
