* It's a social reflex to be nice to someone we find attractive, and people are often willing to overlook minor infractions. Psychologists term this the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_effect Halo Effect,]] though it extends beyond attractiveness. [[IThoughtItMeant No, it is not]] a cross-over of two science fiction [[Franchise/{{Halo}} video]] [[Franchise/MassEffect games.]]

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Connie Brooks is free to pursue ObliviousToLove Mr. Boynton in way that would be questionable if she weren't an attractive English teacher. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Mr. Conklin, when he wryly comments on how he was sure to always find in in Mr. Boynton's biology lab. Party [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that Mr. Boynton likes Miss Brooks, and Miss Brooks' extraordinary pursuit doesn't violate any laws. This bit of dialogue from "Student Government Day" describes Miss Brooks' pursuit of Mr. Boynton in a nutshell:
-->'''Mr. Boynton:''' Fate seems always to be pitching us together\\
'''Miss Brooks:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Compared to me, fate's only a sandlot pitcher]].

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': Furuta can get away with decapitating ghouls because he's doing it in the name of justice for the CCG and humanity. Also, he's very handsome which garners him lots of fan girls who praise his actions. They don't know about his true nature as a half ghoul either which helps.
