In the [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism right setting]] it can act as strongly as ThePowerOfLove or [[PowerOfFriendship Friendship]]. Of course, in darker and more cynical series, the LoveMartyr and HorribleJudgeOfCharacter will think [[LoveRedeems this is enough to change someone]] and be proven wrong [[TheFarmerAndTheViper rather painfully]]. In certain settings, insulting the one who instills the PowerOfTrust in front of the trustee can be a BerserkButton.

Even if InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn, the Power Of Trust an ally bestows can be just as good as their physical presence.

** Fencers also shake hands with their left had but for different reasons. Fencers wear gloves over their sword hands and its traditionally considered a sign of distrust to offer a gloved hand to shake. This is because it implies the the other person is unwashed or otherwise offensive to the touch. Therefore by shaking with the ungloved hand you demonstrate that you trust he other person's sense of hygiene (which was tied directly with social status back in the day).

* ''The Detachment'' by Creator/BarryEisler. Invoked by [[HitmanWithAHeart John Rain]] when he suspects (accurately) that Daniel Larison is planning to kill them and keep all the ransom for himself. Knowing they are NotSoDifferent and aware of how his own viewpoint changed after Dox showed him trust, [[KillMeNowOrForeverStayYourHand he hands Larison a silenced Glock]] and gives him the option of either leaving with his share of the diamonds, or accompanying them to stop a terrorist atrocity. Larison (who was expecting to get shot on the spot) is too stunned to say much, but does end up going with them, despite having refused earlier.

* Mrs O'Brian's childlike trust keep O'Brian and Kira chaste in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' "Looking for Parmach in All the Wrong Places". In the end it is too much of a KickTheDog for them to be able to betray it. The whole thing is mostly PlayedForLaughs (due to how uncomfortable the two of them are around each other) in the B-Plot of the episode.
