* 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...]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode ''Not What He Seems'', despite Mabel thinking the worst of Stan [[spoiler: after learning that he was an imposter with a device that might destroy the world underneath the Shack, she still allows the device to reach it's final countdown. This allows for Stan's twin brother to return]].

* 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.

When the Power Of Trust is directed at a [[TrueNeutral morally neutral]] or gray-black character, it makes them [[GoodFeelsGood feel good]] in an uncomfortable way... the kind that makes them have to suppress the urge to PetTheDog. This is one of the things that can make bad guys like TheMole [[BecomingTheMask switch]] [[HeelFaceTurn sides]]. (Sometimes they will backslide. However, telling them RememberThatYouTrustMe can neutralize that effect.)

* The PowerOfTrust is intertwined with ThePowerOfFriendship in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. Guts is very wary of people because [[spoiler: his adoptive father, whom he admired above all else, sold him out to a pedophile and was raped as a result.]] Over time, he's repetitively put in predicaments that require him, a loner by nature, to place his trust in the hands of other people. Sometimes, the outcome is fruitful, but other times not so much...

* ''{{VideoGame/Fire Emblem|Tellius}}: Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn'' have their support conversations, which allow for power-ups when near the other character supporting you. Can be used for a BackToBackBadasses moment if done right. Also, subverted in Tibarn's conversation with Naesala, where the former states that he trusts the latter because they both have the same goal. What does Naesala do? [[spoiler:Acts as an informant and gets Begnion to burn Phoenicis, Tibarn's kingdom. It is later revealed that he is under the effect of a blood pact that would kill his people if he didn't follow the demands of the Begnion Senate,]] so it's at least a slightly averted subversion.
