* Shows up a few places in ''{{Exalted}}''. The Usurpation, several actions of the Scarlet Empress, and even occasionally the Primordial War had results that were kind of good in the long run but the methods to achieve them and their (undecided) ultimate consequences are still a bit... iffy.

** Daenerys Targaryen breathes this trope. She desperately wants to be the [[TheAce best kind of Targaryen]], and she makes many decisions that are, at root, both heartfelt and from the moral highlands by many readers' lights. Heck, from an outside perspective, more than a few could arguably lead to a better-run region, if properly integrated. The problem is, both Westeros and Essos are too culturally different (and her worldview is also initially too Black-and-White-and-sheltered-all-over when contrasted with the more nuanced, sociopolitical Greys around her) for almost ''anything'' she does to try pushing her agendas to have even close to the expected outcomes in either the medium or longer terms. And, it rarely goes well: for example, you'd think [[spoiler: trying to rid Slaver's Bay of slavery is a good thing, right? The ensuing economic and social collapse is hinted at in the name of the place.]]

The ensuing economic and social collapse leading to several bloodbaths and a pandemic that result when trying to do it in only a few months... is kind of hinted at in the name of the place.]]

* ''TheWeekenders'', "Band": Carver Descartes tells his favorite band that he is not a songwriter, simply because he thinks that lying about the band dedicating their local show to them was enough lies. Turns out that because of that, Chumbucket doesn't have to pay royalties for a song they wrote from doodles Carver left on a napkin. Carver is seething.

*** Eradicating [[spoiler:the Red Court]] also killed many members of [[spoiler:the Fellowship of St. Giles, an organization made up primarily of people who were infected with vampirism by the Red Court but had not completed the change. These half-vampires resisted the compulsion to drink human blood and worked to fight the Red Court and help their victims, often for decades, only to end up as collateral damage when Harry turns the bloodline curse against the Red Court]]. This also left a number of other people who were being helped and supported by [[spoiler:the Fellowship]] suddenly abandoned, as [[spoiler:Hannah Ascher]] relates in ''Literature/SkinGame''.
