* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Pretty throws a big fancy party and plans to invite everyone in [[CrapsaccharineWorld Smileyland]], but since everyone else thinks Kaeloo is lame, Pretty decides not to invite her. When Kaeloo shows up anyway, Pretty yells insults at her so the other party guests, mainly Stumpy, Olaf and Quack Quack, will hear, but privately apologizes to Kaeloo and seems to genuinely regret having to do this to uphold her reputation.

* 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.

* It's possible that this is the ''only'' thing restraining [[OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest Randle P. McMurphy]]. He's perfectly willing to [[ConMan fleece you of your money]], but he wants you to like him while he does it. Being put into a BedlamHouse was one of the worst things that could have happened to him, since the respect the other inmates have for him is directly related to how much he rebels against the Head Nurse, and he'd rather be their hero than escape the brutal punishments that result from defiance.

* PrisonArchitect has the [[SarcasmMode most wonderful and beloved Mayor]], who is such a slave to PR the moment the media starts harassing him about ANYTHING prison related he'll slam you with stupid edits like "Remove all exercise equipment from the yards in 24 hours or be fined massively until you do." Of course, nobody asked you about this, so have fun with prisoners getting so angry they start a riot.

* It turns out [[PhysicalGoddess Princess Celestia]] from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' absolutely ''hates'' having to attend the boring Grand Galloping Gala year after year, but she does since her subjects expect their ruler to attend. In general, it also turns out that nothing brings her more stress than having to constantly [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask maintain the air of a calm, confident ruler before her subjects]]. The Season 7 episode "A Royal Problem" reveals that Celestia finds putting on a smiling face for her subjects very exhausting and thinks that Luna has it easy "just" maintaining the dream world and not having to deal with the public.

* [[spoiler: Griffith]] from the Anime/Berserk is the king of this trope never doing anything evil unless it will advance his goals and won't cause much of a [[VillainWithGoodPublicity negative publicity]]. Give him any reason profitable enough though, any reason, and he will cross the MoralEventHorizon like a chicken would a road. In fact only once in his life did he [[spoiler: do something ForTheEvulz against this principle and that was because it was aimed at the one and only person who dared to make him doubt himself and forget his dream.]]
