* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Ironwood has no faith in Ozpin's ability to protect humanity because he doesn't understand what's driving Ozpin's behaviour and thinks Ozpin is hiding something. Even though Glynda points out that Ozpin has experience Ironwood lacks and that Ironwood has a hard time trusting people, Ironwood secretly reports Ozpin to the Council, undermining Ozpin's authority and career in the process. His justification is that he has both the will and the resources to protect humanity and that Ozpin should therefore be trusting ''him''.

** In Volume 4, Raven tries to call out Qrow on cutting ties with their [[BanditClan "family"]], only for Qrow to point out [[ParentalAbandonment she walked out on her husband right after their daughter Yang was born]], and has made ''no'' attempt to get in contact with them since, [[spoiler: even after Yang lost her arm in the Battle of Beacon]]. Raven quickly changed the subject.

* In a [[http://mrshoneydew.deviantart.com/art/What-Chapter-372-of-Fairy-Tail-Should-Have-Been-524338116 fanfiction]] [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10791036/1/What-Chapter-372-of-Fairy-Tail-should-have-been rewriting]] FairyTail's 372nd chapter, titled Fanfic/WhatChapter372OfFairyTailShouldHaveBeen, Erza frequently insists that Kyouka is the actual sadist simply because she tortured Erza first, and therefore that completely justifies all the torture Erza has thrown back at Kyouka in return. In fact, she firmly stands by the notion that the act of torturing Kyouka is “comeuppance.” Never mind that Erza used far worse torture methods than [[WhipItGood whipping]] and [[ElectricTorture electrocution]], though she used the latter method later on as well. Also, never mind that part of Erza’s torture methods involves ‘’ripping one of Kyouka’s lungs out!’’ [[spoiler: And later her eyes.]]

* John Harrison in ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' genuinely cares for his crew and would do anything to avenge what he thought was their deaths but gave very little thought about [[spoiler: using Kirk and the ''Enterprise'' crew]], even after they risked their lives to bring him in alive against orders.

* In ''Roleplay/TheBalladOfEdgardo'', the other players gang up on Edgardo and A Guy Called Squid for killing Lightning Sword Guy, despite the fact that Sword Guy attacked first, and Edgardo and Squid were only defending themselves. After complaining to the DM, the other players tried to [[RocksFallEveryoneDies get Edgardo and Squid's characters killed so they would leave the forum]].

*** Hody also displays this trope outside his misanthropy. Vander Decken, who Hody had allied with to kill off [[FragileFlower Shirahoshi]], decides to hurl the country-sized boat Noah down on Fishman Island, putting everyone on the island, including Hody's crew, in danger of being squashed. Hody labels decked a traitor for this and climbs up the ship to give him a piece of his mind. However, Hody himself decides that dropping Noah on Fishman Island is a good idea, and tries to kill Decken to [[NoOntologicalInertia shut off his powers]] while the ship is still above the island. Evidently, he wasn't mad that Decken was going to crush his crew, but just himself, casually acknowledging that thousands of his men are going to die and planning to replace them with human slaves.
