* ''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]].

* Kharisma in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive''. Subverted in that she never actually does get what she wants... she even tried to use this trope ''in her trial for Avagadro's murder''. Needless to say, she was sentenced to serving 25 to life and is currently a wanted fugitive.

* ''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.

* In ancient Athens, a beautiful courtesan named Phryne was put on trial for a capital crime. Her defense consisted of getting stripped by her sometime-lover (now defendant) in court and asking the (all-male) jury if they were prepared to destroy ''this.'' She was acquitted right then and there. This is a question of ValuesDissonance: the capital crime in question was blasphemy, and in [[AncientGreece Ancient Greek]] society, exceptional beauty was a sign of favor from the gods (remember, for the Greeks, BeautyEqualsGoodness was serious: they called their nobles ''Kaloi k'Agathoi'', "the Beautiful and the Good"). Essentially, her argument was, "how could I possibly commit blasphemy if the gods have given me ''this'' body." The Athenians have later [[ObviousRulePatch passed a law]] [[ItOnlyWorksOnce that from now on]], [[ObviousRulePatch judges are not to look at the defendants]].

* In the folk song "Willie O'Winsbury," also known as "John Barbour" (and covered by East Coast Canadian band GreatBigSea), a princess has gotten pregnant. When the king finds out that the father, Willie O'Winsbury (or John Barbour), isn't nobility, he plans to have him killed. But when the king sees how incredibly handsome the father is ("If I were a woman as I am a man, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim my bedfellow you would be]]"), the king gives him the princess's hand in marriage, and offers to make him "the lord of my lands." (For contrast, see the folksong "Princess Dysie," in which the princess has become pregnant by Roger the kitchen boy. In this song, the king has Roger's head cut off and sent up to the princess.)

** Then again, Tsuna's MO is forgiving pretty much everyone he runs across for what they do to him and his friends, and [[spoiler: Mukuro DOES actually help Tsuna more than once and is the reason they won the Mist Battle]]. He forgives Rauju and Kaoru as well as Levi, none of whom are as attractive as the rest of the cast and all of whom did worse than Mukuro. [[spoiler: as two of them beat up the five year old Lambo with no hesitation (one of whom with full intent to kill a helpless Lambo ''twice''), and Kaoru nearly killed or paralysed Yamamoto]]. He's also very hesitant to forgive [[spoiler: Byakuran]], despite his reformation until [[spoiler: Byakuran proves himself by saving Yamamoto, protecting Tsuna himself, and giving his power to Tsuna's plan to save the Arcobaleno]], and refuses to forgive his own father.
