** In ''The Traitor's Hand'', Cain winds up dealing with a jealous ObstructiveBureaucrat who ultimately accuses him of attempting to desert during a battle. In a particular bizarre invocation of this trope, the ''Commissariat'' of all organizations investigates the claim.... and then not only dismisses it as utterly frivolous, but opens an investigation to determine whether or not said bureaucrat's obstructionism endangered the course of the entire battle by interfering with Cain's activities.

* ''Disney/Aladdin'': Despite [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter his]] [[{{Manchild}} flaws]], he's generally a worthy ruler knowing when to put his power to good use. In ''[[Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves The King of Thieves]]'', he agrees to drop all charges against Aladdin for busting Cassim free because Aladdin only did so out of love and [[HonorBeforeReason willingly came back to accept the consequences of his actions]] (plus he does like and respect Aladdin). That's on top of changing the law so that Jasmine can MarryForLove.

** Varys is a poignant, competent advisor and not a particularly wicked schemer by the standards of the Court. His vocal concern for the realm seems genuine enough.

** His replacement, Arthur, is likewise quite reasonable, despite being initially antagonistic. While he's positioned as an opposing force initially, it turns out to be due to working from incomplete information - and once he and Tedd get the full story, he immediately agrees that Tedd was correct and offers support and funding.

*** The Mayor also tried to give [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Mr. Kornada]] a fair trial after the news about "Gardener in the Dark" broke. Especially notable since there was only one other judge on the planet, and that one literally wanted him to burn.

* ''Music/KidsPraise'':
** Psalty himself whenever he acts as an authority. In one of the Li'l Praisers videos, it begins raining outside, and Psalty uses that as a [[ThatRemindsMeOfASong song cue]] for the song about the Wise Man and the Foolish Man, and he has the kids put on their raincoats. One kid points out that they're indoors, and while other adults might scold the kid for questioning orders, Psalty just explains that they're costumes.
** {{God}} as well: at times, even Psalty makes mistakes, but every time God intervenes, He's understanding and forgiving.

** The Citadel Council is ''trying'' to be one of these, but whether they are or aren't depends on the game and how Shepard approaches them, with Councilor Tevos generally being the most reasonable and Councilor Sparatus being the most unreasonable, and a Paragon Shepard being responded to most favorably and a Renegade Shepard being considered a dangerous loose cannon. This gets flipped by the events of ''Mass Effect 3'': With the Reapers invading, Councilor Sparatus throws any hint of FantasticRacism toward humanity aside and puts everything he can spare behind Shepard and the Crucible project, Councilor Velarn gives full support to curing the [[DepopulationBomb krogan genophage]] so the [[ProudWarriorRace krogan armies]] will join the fight, and Councilor Tevos even declassifies and gives Shepard the location of the asari's top-secret [[spoiler: Prothean Beacon]] on the off-chance it might have something they can use to win the war.
