A hero or AntiHero gets in a scuffle in a [[BarBrawl bar]], a [[DinerBrawl restaurant]], a [[BallroomBlitz banquet hall]], or another establishment not fit for battle and, after the chaos is over, decides to pay for the destruction left behind. HeroInsurance would typically still be in effect but the hero decides to give the owner a little bit of money in order to pay for the mess. More often than not, this is to make the character look like a total {{badass}}. Not only did they just beat up or kill an enemy in a typically awesome manner but they decided to toss in a few extra bucks to pay for collateral damage. This can often be an EstablishingCharacterMoment since the audience can tell the person is not to be trifled with, but is also generous enough to take responsibility for the damages. There might also be the possibility that the payment is too small to cover the charges. A BondOneLiner is optional.

* Played straight and inverted in a ''ComicStrip/PrinceValiant'' story arc, where Prince Valiant's troop and a band of drunken Vikings had a rhubarb in a travelers' inn. "Val succeeds in holding the stairs, but the stairs fail to hold Val." Prince Valiant gallantly offers to pay for half the damages, while the Viking chieftain requires goading by an armed militia to pony up his half.

* Subverted in the first ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' film. The 'Busters destroy half of a four-star hotel in pursuit of a ghost and not only don't offer to pay but they give the manager a lengthy bill. The snooty manager refuses to pay their high wages (to say nothing of the damages), so they offer to release the ghost back into the hotel, making the manager rethink his options.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Grandmaester Pycelle is intruded upon by Tyrion (who is looking to arrest him) while he is with a prostitute. Just before Tyrion hauls Pycelle away, he gives the prostitute a gold coin "for [her] troubles". He then looks at [[DirtyOldMan Pycelle]] and [[FunnyMoments turns to the prostitute to give her another coin]]. Granted this was likely done to humiliate Pycelle but Tyrion has always treated prostitutes rather well, so it is not out of character for him.
