* An article published on ''RHRC'' named and shamed an anti-choice spokeswoman, listing all the dating and social media sites she's affiliated with. It even mentions some of her personal fetishes as listed on [=FetLife.com=]], despite not having any relevance to the article. Regardless of your stance on abortion, exposing somebody's personal information just because they disagree with you is a low blow. It's since been taken down, but [[http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2015/08/21/editors-note-reporting-cmp-holly-odonnell/ a retraction]] has been published in its place.

* ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'': L. His logic for using the Death Note and becoming as bad as Kira in the story that came with it amounts to this. In his mind, he is Justice, and thus, if he were to die, there would be no more Justice in the world. Hence, every life he takes to subvert fate and save his own, be it that of a criminal or an innocent, is for Justice.

* [=Luke McKinney=] has a reputation for writing articles that come across as excessively, illogically feminist (Such as making a list of obscure, boring superheroines that should get movies before ''Film/FantasticFour2015'', [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad simply because they're female]]), getting criticised for trying too hard to look progressive, then writing a follow-up article about how everyone who disagrees with him is evil. Some of his most ardent critics are [[UnwantedAssistance self-identified Feminists...]]

* It is possible that [[BigBad Sauron]] from Literature/LordOfTheRings started out as this, wanting to bring order to a chaotic world. He was the only who knew what was the most appropriate course of action according to him, after all. Then he underwent severe MotiveDecay and ends up as one of the most evil villains in Literature.

* In ''Literature/TheTraitorSonCycle'', the Archbishop of Alba justifies making use of a hermeticist (something he otherwise condemns and being of the Devil) by stating that because he's an agent of God, everything he does must be for God's cause.

* DependingOnTheWriter, ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd'' is aware that sometimes strict adherence to the letter of the law results in injustice; whether he accepts it as IDidWhatIHadToDo or exercises LoopholeAbuse varies. There have been other Judges every so often who actually believed, "Because I'm a Judge, everything I do is right/legal."

** And those of us who don't get totally caught up in Taylor's admmitedly very compelling POV can see that she's arguably even worse, rationalising a great number of really horrible acts over the course of the story.

* Australian ''Daily Telegraph'' journalist Laura Banks [[http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/when-sharks-are-eating-people-its-time-to-cull/story-fni0cwl5-1227477741452 wrote an article]] condoning the culling of sharks for human convenience. She's quoted as saying "The ocean is our domain and sharks have no place destroying lives and livelihoods; these predators are lurking out there ready to cull humans", and "Great whites should no longer be a protective(sic) species; sharks do not treat humans as a protected species. We must legalise the killing of the sharks that kill us". That in itself doesn't make her this trope; merely ignorant and speciesist for wanting to punish sharks for doing what they're biologically programmed to do. What makes her this trope is that, after receiving a horde of negative feedback, Banks [[http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/talk-about-being-fed-to-the-sharks/story-fni0cx12-1227480883159 wrote a follow-up article]] that tried to spin the issue into one on cyber-bullying, portraying herself as the victim.
** Her fellow journalist Miranda Devine wrote an [[http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/miranda-devine-demonising-men-wont-stop-domestic-violence/story-fni0cwl5-1227545469411?sv=4b344aaafe868687b73773b8065f075f article on domestic violence]] which caused a stir for using statistics that state domestic violence is higher in low-income areas, to infer that women who choose men of a lower status deserve to get abused. After receiving a backlash (along with several accounts detailing how inaccurate her findings were) Miranda wrote [[http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/rendezview/miranda-devine-answers-her-critics/story-fnpug1jf-1227549660186 a response piece]] in the same vein as the one Laura Banks wrote.
