* In ''[[{{WebOriginal/Takotsubo}} Takotsubo: The story of a superhero,]]'' East 13 is a {{Deconstruction}} of this. The Chinese-American Cord Cai's [[TheLostLenore fiance Roland got shot by a carjacker,]] and [[PoliceAreUseless the police fucked up majorly]] on finding his murderer. After an InterruptedSuicide, Cord [[BestServedCold shoots the murderer and tags the front door]] before starting his reign as the Tin Man. It's PlayedForDrama because while this is a SuperheroOrigin story, Cord and Roland had a history of street-gang involvement and were trying to ''get away'' from the "Asian Gangster" stereotype. Once Roland dies, Cord calls himself [[TragicVillain yet another failure who can't escape the streets.]]

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Mr. Big. As a crime boss, he would be the villain of the story. In fact, he nearly ''iced'' Nick and Judy for trespassing. But when [[MafiaPrincess his daughter]] reveals that Judy saved his life, he spares them and offers whatever information and services he can, [[spoiler: even threatening Duke Weaselton into coughing up the location of the toxin lab]].

* Sonny (Chazz Palminteri) in ''Film/ABronxTale''. Since it's all based on Palminteri's youth in the Bronx, the original Sonny is probably an example of TruthInTelevision as well. Deconstructed with members of his crew, who are losers or sociopaths barely being kept by a leash.

* Los Rabiosos\La Rabia in IWA Puerto Rico, WWC and the World Wrestling League, for the most part, given ''most'' are politically motivated rather than simply for profit and want good for Puerto Ricans.

** It is stated in the later books that the Thieves Guild is slowly evolving into an insurance company [[note]] People with the economic possibility simply pay an unspecified sum to the Guild, receive a conformation slip, and, like with the receipt, this protects them from robberies. [[/note]]. Chrysophrase also claims to be moving into legitimate property and financial services more than his first business, drug smuggling, though he remains a major underworld figure, whereas the Head of the Thieves Guild is an important and respected citizen who, it is implied, could even be a candidate for ''Patrician''.

\n* While cops and organized criminals generally like to stay apart, often the organized criminals will aid the police when a cop is killed because while the cops are bad for business already, dead cops set the police on the warpath, which is even worse.

* The Kuroda group in ''{{Gokusen}}'' is like this. They still like a good fight and get most of their resources from illegal gambling and protection of hostess bars. Though unlike others they don't just get protection money to extort them, they really do protect them.
