* Inverted with [[spoiler:Malva]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', who claims she ''does'' possess such honor. It's why she helps you post-story in the Looker quest, she claims.



* Inverted in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Second Chance". The Penguin clearly ''does'' possess honor among thieves, as he tells Batman when the hero suspects him of ordering Two-Face kidnapped.
-->'''Penguin:''' True, he cheated me out of jewel encrusted statue of a two headed roc... It was worth millions. But my dear Batman, I would never snatch a fellow rogue from his sickbed. Is simply isn't done.
-->'''Batman:''' Honor among thieves?
-->'''Penguin:''' Precisely. If I wanted to attack Harvey, I'd do it face to face... To ''face'', as it were.

* In season 3 of ''Series/NecessaryRoughness'' as soon as it looks like the FBI investigation is not going away, Cameron and Taylor turn on each other and try to set things up to make it look like the other one was behind the entire scheme. Cameron had the lead since he was GenreSavvy to let Taylor do all the things that could be traced and Taylor is desperate to turn the tables and get Cameron to incriminate himself.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Orks and Chaos, ''especially'' Chaos. The Dark Eldar {{avert|edTrope}} this: although backstabbing your superior is the only way to advance in Dark Eldar society, they're GenreSavvy about this trope and won't risk compromising a raid to get a personal advantage. Once the raid is over, though, they're fair game.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'', the surviving members of the Suicide Squad fight over a helicopter even though it's big enough for all of them and they'd have a better chance of using it to escape if they cooperated.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', Placido is so rotten he even steals from his partner Lucciano to accomplish his own - unauthorized - plan. (This takes the Trope UpToEleven and becomes far more serious when you discover later that the Three Nobles of Yliaster - which Placido and Lucciano were members of) are three embodiments of one being, Aporia, meaning Placido was so full of hostility, it even extended towards himself.)

[[spoiler:When confronted by Mikey about how he (Duffy) repaid his mentor Grady Hale by being an informant that resulted in his conviction years ago, Duffy replies that honor has no place amongst criminals, reminding him that their own bosses Markham and Katherine wouldn't hesitate to betray ''them'' if it suited their ends]].
