* In the Literature/{{Discworld}}'s Ankh-Morpork, Commander Vimes pursues the law without favor, annoys the rich and power, upsets the finely-balanced alliances of the city's politics and generally makes a nuisance of himself to Lord Vetinari by thumping through his court like a bull in a china shop. This is exactly where Vetinari likes having him around.

* On the FX show ''Series/{{Terriers}}'', Hank, an ex-cop, and low-level P.I. Frames The Guilty Party (FramingTheGuiltyParty) in a murder and then tips off his ex-partner Gustafson (who's still a cop and was investigating the crime) about new evidence so he can arrest (and convict) the killer. Gustafson gets great notices for solving the murder, only for something else to unexpectedly go wrong, putting him, Hank, and the whole case in jeopardy. Noty wanting to get himself involved, Gustafson tells Hank he has twenty four hours to fix it (YouHave48Hours). If Hank can't, not only would he be investigated for (and charged with) planting evidence, he'll ruin his friend's career too, for being linked to a frame-up.

* Author LenDeighton's NoNameGiven spy once remarks to someone that he's well known to be a loose cannon who the boss can barely keep under control. He mentions that this is his boss's protection, and the government's protection, as they can disown him if needed. Everyone's happy with this, he gets to do what he has to to get the job done and they can pretend to be [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Shocked, Shocked!]], if he gets in trouble.
