* ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'' features Galvanax the BigBad. As a previous battleworld champion, he's all about going after the rangers, but his advisers point out, if he gets knocked down even once he could lose his fanbase and followers. As such, he keeps sending out proxies until the right time.

* ''FanFic/ThisBites'': In the wake of the PR fiasco that was Enies Lobby, the Marines have effectively become PR's ''bitch'' for the foreseeable future. To the point that Sengoku has permanently reassigned every single Marine that follows "[[KnightTemplar Absolute Justice]]" (such as Admiral Akainu and Vice-Admiral Onigumo) to the New World so that way they can't make things worse than they already have.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', John and George rid an inn of thieves by making all the toilets fill up with sewage. Their triumph is rudely destroyed by the Guardians, for whom they were working; the Guardians chastise them for saving the inn in such an embarrassing and non-Guardians fashion. (Spectrem: "Look, guys, it's not that we aren't pleased you helped free the inn. We are! And we really like that you're concerned about the people. But, you know, you always gotta take lotsa little things into account before you do something. And the Guardians' rep is not all that little. You gotta understand that doing something inappropriate in our name can cause big harm to our image, which could endanger a lot of people in the future.") Because of this, they refuse to absorb the damage to the inn and end up taking more than half of John's reward money to cover it.

* In ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', resident BadBoss Adelei Niska is ''obsessed'' with maintaining image and reputation, to a point where he tortures and kills anyone who fails to do a job for him, including his own wife's nephew.
** [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Alternatively,]] he's just a bastard.
** On the other hand, Zoe was confident she could walk in and out of his lair with a large pile of cash without being robbed and murdered, based on Niska's need to uphold his albeit twisted code.

** A common problem with wars throughout history, but especially a problem in the modern era. The 24 hour news cycle combined with the phenomenon of Internet social media has made the public backlash to a war more important than ever, because the means by which a war and its architects can be criticized with modern technology is greater than ever before in human history. If a war is deemed too costly to continue, too immoral, or if it was done for the wrong reasons -- the public will let you know so fast that your head will spin.

* In ApocalypseNow this trope is thoroughly mocked by Colonel Kurtz, and is cited as a reason for why America is losing the Vietnam War. He admires the Vietnamese enemy for they were willing to do cruel things in order to win, regardless of the perceived immortality of their actions. The Vietnamese were willing to do whatever it took to win, with no method being too cruel or unsightly to achieve victory -- the Americans by contrast let judgment based on fighting a war "morally" defeat them.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'''s L. Thompson Lincoln, aka [[EvilAlbino Tombstone]], aka The Big Man (maybe), is the crime lord of New York, but had a charitable public image to maintain. To the point where when he and the other two potential criminal rulers of the city had a meeting and a quick agreement to stop fighting just long enough to kill Spidey, [[spoiler:he turned against them and saved the wall-crawler]] because he couldn't be seen consorting with those two. [[spoiler:Of course, the moment they were out of sight...]]

* Your character might become this in ''VideoGame/Heroes Rise'' trilogy if you are focused on getting as much Fame and Legend Points as possible. If your Fame stat is high enough, some of the options that include putting justice above glory will be actually disabled. And if you choose so, you can [[spoiler:betray Jenny and ruin her mission just so you can stay in the competition.]] But again, your hero might as well be focused entirely on helping people, so this trope is optional.
