*** Tywin also berates Joffrey for the latter's execution of Ned Stark - not because Tywin cared about Ned, but because Ned would have been a vital bargaining chip, and indeed the North rose in rebellion after the execution. Tywin's son Tyrion (who actually has conscience) and daughter Cersei (who is perfectly capable of StupidEvil) share this opinion - in fact, Joffrey has a gift of pushing people onto this trope, because he is such TheMillstone that everyone in the family is forced into damage control over his dumbest moves.
*** Tyrion also advocates giving [[SociopathicSoldier Gregor Clegane's]] head to the Martells, Gregor having raped and killed a member of the Martell family, as well as her child son. Tyrion does not advocate this out of disgust of Gregor's crimes (Although he doesn't approve) but because the crown badly needs to be on the Martell family's good side, and he considers psychos like Gregor to be a dime a dozen. Tywin initially agreed on this, but backed out later, planning to blame the deaths on the dead Amory Lorch. This itself is a downplayed example, as Armory was responsible for a third Martell death.

* In ''Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'', Gaunter O'Dimm will gladly help Geralt several times, even warning him to [[GoMadFromTheRevelation not try to discover what O'Dimm really is, for his own sanity.]] This isn't because he's a nice guy, since he's the Witcher equivalent of the Devil himself; rather, it's because he needs Geralt sane and effective so he can help O'Dimm collect on his contract with Olgierd. At the end, if Geralt sides with O'Dimm and lets him win, he'll tell Geralt information to help him save Ciri in the main game's ending... but that is so that Ciri will survive to defeat the White Frost, which threatens to destroy O'Dimm's favorite playground.

** Later on, her father, Tywin Lannister, saves a group of prisoners [[spoiler: including Arya Stark, although he doesn't seem to have realized it,]] from torture and death. Not because the whole torture thing bothers him but because, hey, why waste free laborers? Indeed, he asks one his trade and then turns his head to a would-be killer as if to say "''See what I mean''?", then concludes the scene by drafting her as his cupbearer.

* After being sent back in time with his morals replaced by those of a demon (specifically [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Mara]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2693964/3/The-Demon-s-Contract The Demon's Contract]]'', Ranma decides to become engaged to Kasumi while manipulating the sisters to think it's their idea. Afterwards, he takes her out, helps her enjoy herself, and encourages her to pursue any job or hobby or lifestyle she wants. The reason for all of that? While he doesn't love ''any'' of the Tendo sisters, he wants out of that house and the only way to do so is with a fiance who will support him on anything. Like say, the one he saved from a lifetime of being stuck at home caring for her family.
