* Defied on [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander's]] suggestion in ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-23251-16/BarefootXO+Time+and+Again.htm Time and Again]]'' when he explains to Literature/HarryPotter that if any Task seems beyond him in the Triwizard Tournament, he should simply concede as his goal is survival, not winning. Harry admits he's right and is embarrassed by once taking Wood's advice to "Get the snitch or die trying" seriously given that Quidditch is only a game.

Their first thought is worry for the historical artefacts stored at Batmunkh Gompa that will be destroyed, rather than the innocent people living there who will be killed.

** Lampshaded by Edward in Literature/MidnightSun when he tells Bella he can read minds but not hers, and she worries that it means something is wrong with her. He does it out loud in the Twilight movie.



** In "Asylum of the Daleks", the Doctor, Amy and Rory are trapped on a planet full of battle-scarred psychotic-even-by-Dalek-standards Daleks, and Amy is infected with a cloud of nano-techs that is slowly turning her into a Dalek puppet. "In no particular order, we need to neutralize all the Daleks in this Asylum, rescue Oswin from the wreckage, escape from this planet, and fix Amy and Rory's marriage."

* ''Webcomic/{{Xkcd}}'': [[http://xkcd.com/599/ As the Apocalypse unfolds around]] him, Cueball's first priority is to get himself the [[SixDegreesOfKevinBacon Erdos number number]] of 1.1. Several other mathematicians also share this priority, to the point of needing to form a line. And the AltText suggests that he wants to take it further.

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Goku and Piccolo fight in the final match of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament. Piccolo announces that he plans to kill Goku and take over the world, even nearly killing the audience with stray energy blasts. When Goku's friends attempt to assist him, he orders them back, saying that if they help him, he will get disqualified. They incredulously ask, "You're still thinking about the '''match'''!?" and try to point out that Piccolo obviously doesn't care about the match (you get disqualified if you kill your opponent), but to no avail.

** Goku asks Vegeta to train with him. While normally, Vegeta is just as obsessed with fighting as he is, he declines because his daughter is about to be born and he wants to be there. Goku gets confused and thinks Vegeta is being weird, wondering why something like a birth would be more important than training. This implies Goku wasn't there when his son Gohan was born.
** [[TopGod Zen'O]] holds the Tournament of Power, where the losers get their home universe erased from existence. While everyone else understandably freaks out when they learn about the stakes, Goku cares more about the fact he has a chance to fight the strongest opponents in several universes.
