* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' mocks this trope in the second season. [[UpperClassTwit Iok Kujan]]'s actions cause a Mobile Armor -- a massive, powerful KillerRobot -- to be re-activated, and his subordinates [[GoThroughMe sacrifice themselves]] to ensure his survival. When [[ChildSoldiers Julietta Juris]] finds Iok, he's become convinced that he has to destroy the Mobile Armor personally or else he won't be able to face his men in the afterlife (Julietta's reaction is stunned disbelief). Not only is this stupid (because his weapons can't even scratch the Mobile Armor's paint) and not only does it risk turning his mens' deaths into a SenselessSacrifice, but Iok's actions ruin Tekkadan's plans to take down the monster, allowing it to reach and destroy an entire farming village, killing everyone there.

* After the success of PeterBenchley's novel ''{{Literature/Jaws}}'' and the [[{{Film/Jaws}} movie]] based on it, sharks were slaughtered en masse out of misguided fear that they actively hunted people. This panic--dubbed [[http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2010-10-31/news/fl-endangered-sharks-20101030_1_nurse-shark-bull-shark-tiger-sharks "the Jaws effect"]]--ended up driving a third of all shark species to the brink of extinction. Benchley [[http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2002/06/0606_shark5.html became a conservationist]] and dedicated the rest of his life to trying to teach people that sharks are not the monsters he had portrayed them as.

* In Franchise/TheDCU, we had [[Franchise/GreenLantern Hal Jordan]] completely lose his sanity and decide to fix his failure to save Coast City... by killing the Green Lantern Corps, killing Sinestro, and then killing the universe... so he could remake reality "right". Fittingly, after all this nonsense, He went on to try and make all of ''that'' right, and ended up sacrificing himself to save the world (of course, he got better). Then a few years later, Creator/GeoffJohns {{retcon}}ned the whole thing to Jordan being possessed by a killer space bug made out of fear, but...
* Franchise/{{Batman}} does this on Nightwing's behalf toward the tail end of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's "[[ComicBook/JokersLastLaugh Last Laugh]]" storyline: Batman doesn't want Nightwing to think of himself as a murderer.
