*** Not entirely, as he did express his hatred for the Empire from the very beginning and wanted to join the Rebellion as many of his friends had done. Obligation toward his family kept him on Tattooine. Han Solo better fits the trope, as his only interest in assisting the Rebellion at first was to get up enough money to pay off Jabba the Hutt. Attachment to Luke and ''especially'' Leia, seeing what the Empire was up to first-hand, [[spoiler:Chewbacca talking him into it, and Darth Vader freezing him in carbonite and shipping him to Jabba]] probably sealed the deal. [[spoiler:Given that Chewbacca was GoodAllAlong, having assisted the Old Republic and the Jedi as a high-level decision-maker in ''Revenge of the Sith'', it's possible Chewie exercised a BatmanGambit to enlist the galaxy's best smuggler into the Rebellion.]]

* Though none of them are remotely badass, in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4967518/5/Adamantine-Mist Adamantine Mist]]'' all the civilians of [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Nerima]] set out to destroy Ranma's would be fiances after Shampoo attacks [[FriendToAllLivingThings Kasumi]]. This is done through actions like delaying orders to Ukyo's restaurant or flat out refusing to sell to Shampoo's and Cologne's cafe.

* On the ''{{Community}}'' episode [[Recap/CommunityS3E14PillowsAndBlankets "Pillows and Blankets"]], while a campus-wide CivilWar ragea round him, [[ManipulativeBastard Jeff]] first exploits the conflict for personal gain. However, he makes a genuine stance once he sees that the friendship between Troy and Abed has seriously deteriorated. (Subverted in that instead of picking a side to support, he works towards the pair's reconciliation.)

* In ''Fanfic/AGreatEndeavour'', Equestria wanted to stay out of World War II at first, seeing it as a human problem. When the Nazis extended their purge of the lesser races to include ponies, though, the princesses refused to merely stand by and watch any longer.

* In a StarTrekExpandedUniverse novel, the entire plot is revealed to have been a ploy by Starfleet Intelligence to bring the Klingons out of their neutral state in regards to Federation-Romulan negotiations on the side of the Federation by making the Romulans appear to be dishonorable and underhanded (not a difficult task, mind you). This results in the Treaty of Algeron, when the Romulans close their borders for several decades in exchange for the Federation banning all cloaking research.

* In ''MegaManZero 4'', the human refugees of [[NewEden Area Zero]], known as Caravan, prefer to stay out of the war between the LaResistance (who they only see as terrorists with petty goals) and [[TheEmpire Neo Arcadia]] (which has fallen into dictatorial rule). However, over the course of the game, upon seeing that the Resistance's goals were no different from their own, the Caravan finally welcomes their help in fighting off and finally defeating the Neo Arcadian army. At the end of the game, in fact, [[TearJerker they all mourn for]] [[spoiler:Zero's HeroicSacrifice, knowing that all of it would never have been possible without his efforts.]]
* In ''RogueGalaxy'', BrokenHero Deego Aegis could care less about the Morarty family taking over Vedan. He would like nothing more than to [[DrowningMySorrows spend the rest of his life drinking away at his friend Angela's bar.]] However, once the Morarty Family burns down her bar, Deego is more than willing to make a stand against them.

* Another one from BioWare and StarWars: Jolee Bindo from ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' is a [[KnightInSourArmor ex-Jedi in Sour Armor]] who left the Order and had self-exiled himself. Despite being neutral on the KarmaMeter, and making a good show of not caring about the outcome of the current war, he is very quick to scold a player's Dark Side acts. When it comes down to the wire, he chooses the path of a Jedi and will positively ''refuse'' to join you if you choose Dark Side.
