* A major theme with ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries''. Twilight even points out that trust is instrumental for friendship to exist. [[spoiler:In fact, it originally ''was'' an Element of Harmony until Discord [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy destroyed it]], but Twilight points out that trust is still a requirement for the Elements, as without it, ThePowerOfFriendship can't exist to power them. Celestia actively applauds her for figuring this out.]]

* This trope ''is'' the mature relationship between defense attorney '[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] and prosecutor [[TheRival Miles Edgeworth]]. Out of court, they're close friends who call on the other when one of them needs someone who will not, under any circumstances, let him down. In court, they go after each other with no holds barred, because they know Edgeworth won't let a guilty person escape and Phoenix won't let an innocent person be convicted. And the instant Phoenix can demonstrate that the guilt points to someone other than his client, Edgeworth will be at his side helping him take the creep down.

* In philosophy, the Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma dictates that in the long run, it's better to trust your fellow human beings than try to screw them to get yourself out of trouble. The criminals code against snitching works on this premise, don't snitch today, tomorrow it might be you who they're asking about. The original Prisoner's Dilemma arrives at a [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters different conclusion...]]

* Horribly subverted in ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. [[spoiler:Mr Orange]] [[ObliviousGuiltSlinging feels obligated]] to confess to [[spoiler:Mr White]], who has taken the bullet for him, that he was the rat all along. The latter then tearfully, but promptly, executes him.
* In ''Film/GoodWillHunting'', psychology professor Sean Maguire is lecturing his class:
--> '''Sean:''' ''Trust:'' is a very important thing. *Tosses apple to student who's slouching in his seat* Jeremy- you want to tell us why this is?
--> '''Student:''' Because trust... trust is... ''life.''
--> '''Sean:''' Mm, well, that's- very deep, thank you, Jeremy.

* In ''Film/NationalTreasure'', Ben has to save both Abigail and the Declaration of Independence. He asks if she trusts him; she says yes. He promptly ''drops her'' in order to save the priceless document. He apologizes afterwards, but she simply assures him she would have done exactly the same thing.
* This is one of the core tenets of ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2''.
* In ''Film/MoulinRouge'', the lack of this is the main difficulty in seeking true love with a prostitute: "When love is for sale to the highest bidder, there can be no trust. Without trust, there can be no love!"

* In ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', just before leaping out of the window of a high building, Aladdin offers Jasmine his hand and asks: "Do you trust me?" Later he asks the same thing when inviting her for a carpet ride, [[SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay which gives away his disguise]].
** Jasmine's answer both times is: "yes", the first time uncertainly, the second time with a smile.
*** Her initial response, a surprised "what?", is also the same both times, the first time more panicked while the second is more confused before she figures it out and smiles knowingly.

** It really speaks volumes of how much trust there is between Lelouch and Suzaku that, early in the series, he's considering setting up a marriage between Suzaku and Nunnally. Nunnally is by far the most important person in Lelouch's life, and her happiness is the only reason he's doing any of what he's doing, so the fact that he would trust Suzaku with her life and happiness is telling. It also explains why both guys are so heavily affected when the eventually realize that they are enemies: such a betrayal would cut deeply.
