* ''Manga/DragonBall'': As stated in the King Piccolo Saga, Kami had originally created the [[MacGuffin Dragon Balls]] to serve as a symbol of hope for humanity, but the exact opposite happened as humans only wanted to use the balls for their own selfish purposes; thus, after King Piccolo destroyed Shenron after getting his youth restored, Kami initially chose to just let Shenron stay dead. It was seeing Goku's love for his friends, as well as his valiant efforts against Piccolo, that convinced Kami there were still good people in the world.

* Joseph [=McCarthy's=] witch hunts against communists during the 1950s made his position almost untouchable. Not many people dared to question his tactics and general paranoia, which ruined the careers and reputations of many people who would normally be protected by the United States law to have free expression. Yet Edward Murrow, a journalist, risked his entire career by directly challenging McCarthy's ethics and methods. His bold stance worked and soon the senator and the general anti-communist climate was deemed unconstitutional and caused his downfall.

* An alien variant appears in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' #8 when the disgruntled semi-defected Decepticon Fulcrum is motivated to make a HeroicSacrifice to save the Scavengers because they've proven to him that the Decepticon cause is still worthy, even if their ranks did become infested with psychoes, sadists and monsters who just used it as an excuse to kill.

** Similarly, Mikhail Gorbachev became leader of the Soviet Union in a very oppressive and restrictive system that would make it impossible for people like him to rise to such a high political position. He was an advocate of social changes for all people behind the Iron Curtain and even managed to put all these more human laws into effect, thus eventually causing the USSR and the entire Eastern Bloc to collapse in an almost peaceful way.

* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', the MartianManhunter flies off to what he thought was a secluded area on Earth, since after [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead a telepathic sweep of the city, leaves him (accidentally) accessible to the petty]] and [[HumansAreBastards selfish thoughts of humanity]]. However, he soon notices a search party looking for a girl that has gone missing, and hearing their thoughts, as well as the lost girl, learning that [[RousseauWasRight humans are decent after all]], after finding her returning her back to the camp. He goes ''another'' one of this of sorts, in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' when Franchise/WonderWoman notices he doesn't like humans and is "cooped up" in the Watchtower. She then insists he take part in the team's mission, [[PutOnABus before announcing he's taking leave and descends on Earth to live among humans]]. When he returns for the GrandFinale, it's later revealed that he not only was capable of living with humans, but he was ''in a relationship'' with one.

* Manchester Black goes through a darker variant of this after trying and failing to provoke Franchise/{{Superman}} [[ThanatosGambit into killing him]]. When Superman remains dedicated to his principles even after Black apparently killed Lois, Manchester realized that true heroes like Superman really did exist. This also leads to Manchester [[HeelRealization realizing]] that he had become just another supervillain. After erasing the knowledge of Superman's identity from the minds of the villains he granted it to in the first place, Manchester promptly [[DrivenToSuicide killed himself]].

* In Film/TheDarkKnight (2008) The Joker has put two bombs in two ships, one of them full of convicts, the other full of ordinary people. The people on the ships are informed that they can detonate one of the ships and save their own lives.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': when she was a kid, Skye was shuffled around different families, and she took this to mean that none of the families wanted to keep her. When Coulson manages to find out proof that showed that it actually was due to a [=SHIELD=] protocol meant to protect her and all those families, she realizes that perhaps some of them would have wanted to keep her, and her faith (and that of Coulson) is restored.
