* {{ComicBook/Sabretooth}} had two of these. In the 90s, he had his sidekick, Birdie. He used her to get the "glow", similar to telepathic cleansing, which kept his feral side in check and prevented him from going complete crazy. Once she was killed, there was no longer anything to contain him. He admits during her death that she's the only person he'd miss, though he still casually steps over her dead body afterwards. In the recent run of ''{{ComicBook/Uncanny X Men}}'', Monet St. Croix became his chain. He had been inverted during the {{ComicBook/AXIS}} story-line. When he joined Magneto's X-Men, he developed an [[ShipTease interesting]] relationship with Monet, with whom he was very protective. When she's cursed by Emplate and receives his Vampire-like hunger, Sabretooth offers himself up as food for her & promises to keep her secret. It's possible that letting her feed on him frequently is what wears down his inversion, making him behave more like his old self. He thinks to himself about needing something genuine to fight for in order to stay grounded. And that something was his desire to protect Monet.

** Subverted in later seasons, when the show becomes less clear on whether Dexter was actually by nature a murderous sociopath with no ability to control his instincts, or whether he was just traumatized and schizoidal, and whether Harry just misread the situation and manipulated him for the sake of pursuing personal vendetta.
***Totally averted with all his girlfriends except Rita, and played with in regards to his stepdaughter Astor, because he will kill to protect her without going through his usual vetting process.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4754974/12/Forgotten Forgotten]]'', Dracula is perfectly happy to let live humanity as long as his beloved wife is besides him. His servants are not happy about it and decide to kill Mina Hakuba - the latest reincarnation - and destroy her soul to ensure she would be unable to redeem Dracula again. Soma disagrees with it. Quite violently.
** Alucard later begs Mina to teach Soma how to live without her, pointing how she could die from illness or old age and ''still'' Soma would fall into the darkness because of it. She promises she will.

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', Josef is the reason Nico hasn't gone off the deep end yet. She's a demonseed, always at risk that a demon will take her over, but she has UndyingLoyalty for Josef and his words - and sometimes, even his presence, or someone mentioning that he needs her help - are often enough to pull her back from the brink.

* ''StarWars'' basically had Emperor Palpatine psyching Anakin/Darth Vader to the point of killing his own Morality Chain, Padmé.
** For that matter, ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' has Luke ''becoming'' a Morality Chain for his dying father.

** And Palpatine notes in the ''RevengeOfTheSith'' novel that Obi-Wan is Anakin's other morality chain, with Dooku's plan being to break the chain by killing Obi-Wan. Palpatine has other ideas, of course. He also managed to weaken the effect of both of Anakin's chains; at the start of the novel Anakin has some respect for his wife's autonomy and doesn't want to hurt her. Later, even before he strangles her, he sees her less as a person he loves and more as a possession expressing fear and pain, emotions that are beautiful to behold because he earned them.
