* ''Series/{{Malcolm In The Middle}}'': In the episode Grandma Sues, Ida's attorney walks away from her lawsuit after the realizing the family's homeowner's insurance policy is cancelled. His closing quote says it all: "Now, I don't mind tossing innocent people into the street. I just don't do it for free!"

** In the Finale arc, Discord's brainwashed minion [[spoiler:Diamond Tiara]] suggests [[MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight altering history so that Megan died before becoming a hero]]. That way, the Rainbow of Light aka the Elements of Harmony would never have been discovered, and Discord would never have been stopped and his reign would have lasted forever. Discord vetoes this because there are so many things that can go wrong with altering history, citing the ButterflyOfDoom. Plus, without Megan, the villains she stopped like Tirek, Grogar, and Lavan would still be around, and all of them are powerful enough to threaten even Discord and would not work with him. Finally, he points out altering history could risk erasing [[spoiler:Silver Spoon, Tootsie, and Alula, among the only characters [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Diamond cares about]].]] He adds that he would be willing to do it if there were no risks.

** Raven Branwen, for all of her ruthlessness, demonstrates this repeatedly. When the Branwen Tribe captures Weiss, Raven's warrior Vernal states that the Tribe doesn't normally deal in hostages, as it's too much trouble, but Weiss basically fell in their laps to ransom. When Weiss breaks out of her cage and teams up with Yang, Raven agrees to let her go as a brawl would attract the Grimm. [[spoiler: When Cinder and Watts show up to strong-arm her into service, Raven demands Qrow's death in return- So she can double-cross them in the chaos. She's also the Spring Maiden, but rather than make this obvious, she has Vernal act as a decoy. A wise bird hides her talons, indeed...]]

* Count Arganan of ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'' is very reasonable with the protagonist, Zael. When Zael is framed for kidnapping his niece, all it takes is an explanation from Zael's friend to get him out of jail, and later on, Arganan offers Zael knighthood and the hand of said niece in marriage, two things Zael has been hoping for. He does all this because he learns that Zael is TheChosenOne and reasons that if he wants to use Zael's power to further his ambitions, it's better to just get on his good side than to try and threaten or force him into it.

* Constable Neyla of ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'', though only a "villain" in the sense that she works for Interpol and the protagonists are criminals, is aware that Sly's gang has a tendancy to bring down much more serious criminals and openly admits she's willing to slip him clues and even directly work with him for the greater good. [[spoiler:Of course, this changes once it's revealed she actually ''is'' the game's BigBad and was merely using you to get access to [[BiggerBad Clockwerk's]] body.]]

* ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheNatural20'': Lucius Malfoy doesn't actually want Voldemort resurrected. His CartoonishSupervillainy ways are simply too destructive -- far better to advance pureblood supremacy through the BoringButPractical method of exploiting corruption in the Ministry of Magic.
