* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The [[IdealHero paragon option]] has [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] condemning looting as immoral. This is so at odds with {{gameplay|And Story Segregation}}, which all but requires [[KleptomaniacHero taking everything of value that isn't nailed down]], nor penalize it with the KarmaMeter, it's almost funny. Of course, as a Citadel SPECTER, Shephard ''does'' have legal authorization to perform "on the spot requisitions" if it will assist in his/her missions, while the looters are just trying to line their pockets, so the difference isn't so much in what they are doing as it is why they are doing it.

* In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', the X-Men kill En Sabah Nur to protect the world from his AGodAmI ambitions. Magneto, who used his amplified powers to tear apart cities across the world, gets to [[KarmaHoudini walk away]] after a pleasant chat on the X-Mansion grounds, with no mention of the global death and destruction he personally caused. Probably helps that he helped stop Apocalypse after a HeelRealization.

* {{Whitewolf}}'s ''TabletopGame/WarcraftTheRoleplayingGame'' says the Blood elf Farstriders are NeutralGood but then goes on to say [[FantasticRacism they lynch any troll they see]], including the good Darkspear tribe! Afterwards Whitewolf says the Farstriders are the epitome of valiance and honor.

* Honestly, just about ''any'' fanfic can fit this trope, these days.

* WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom has polarizing eco-feminist [[SoapBoxSadie Sam Manson]] tell Danny he should use his powers to do good things and not hurt others...only to tell him he should use his powers to haunt a car lot so people won't buy ecologically unsound trucks. Danny doesn't do it, but no one calls her out on it.
** [[JustifiedTrope Probably because,]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist to her, that ''would'' be a good thing to do.]]

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', what establishes Griffin Grey as a villain is him kindapping Dr. Wells, which he did because he was dying and desperately wanted to find a cure. When Barry kidnapped someone (not a villain) for less understandable reason few episodes earlier no one cared.
