* Subverted in ''{{NCIS}}''. [[spoiler:Agent Lee]] is revealed to be the traitor because [[spoiler:her sister/daughter (long story)]] was in trouble. RedemptionEqualsDeath in this case, but it's unlikely that the traitor would have faced anything less than a long stay in federal prison.

* In ''{{Dune}}'' the character [[spoiler:Wellington Yueh has a wife]] captured by the Harkonnen. For this reason he betrays the Atreides (his loyalty conditioning would make this otherwise impossible, but I guess his loyalty to his wife is able to trump even that).

* In the season 1 finale of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' we learn that most people working for [[spoiler:HYDRA]] are there because of the "incentive plan" - namely, keeping loved ones hostage to make people work on their behalf. This extends to kidnapping other people's loved ones and making them work for the bad guys too.
