* This is the reasoning the Nazi party used in their propaganda to justify the sterilization of 400,000 German citizens in the period 1933-45 and the extermination of Germany's 70,000 remaining mentally ill and disabled in the period 1939-45. Interestingly, the sterilizations were not carried out by government personnel or under orders, but by regular doctors with government encouragement and approval. In fact, the Nazis had a slogan, ''Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz'': "The common good goes before individual good." See [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust]] and the article on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aktion_T4 Aktion T4]] on the OtherWiki for more on this.

* A major theme of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''; it shows up in the Redcliffe and Circle quests, the whole concept of the Grey Wardens, and [[spoiler: the endgame]]. The Qun (not so much a race as a "religion" / philosophical movement) is also built on this, to the point where its adherents give up personal names and refer to each other by [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep their role in society.]] They view their society as a single creature that they must all work to strengthen and protect.

Dissent is not tolerated under the Qun; those who question their role in society are tortured or killed. Those who escape are regarded as psychopathic monsters who have damned their own souls.

** In "My Name is Oliver Queen", Felicity tries to get Roy to abandon his work on [[spoiler:an inoculant to the Alpha and Omega virus]] to save Oliver. Roy quite rightly refuses, pointing out that thousands will die if he stops. She insists ''again'' that he save Oliver instead, only for him to refuse again. [[spoiler:He then realizes that [[TakeAThirdOption he can work on the inoculant, and she can use his ATOM suit to save Oliver.]]

* ''VideoGame/SpiderManEdgeOfTime'': This is the primary source of conflict between Spider-Man 2099 and the present day Spider-Man. Miguel is only concerned with the grand scheme of things and stopping [[BigBad Walker Sloan]] from ruining the future, while Peter is [[ChronicHeroSyndrome obsessed with the human cost of his actions]] and refuses to abandon innocent people no matter what. At one point, the two end up in each other's time periods, and when Peter finds out that [[LoveInterest Mary Jane]] is destined to die that night, Miguel initially refuses to save her, stating he's got "enough to deal with," and only goes along with it when Peter outright begs him to do so. Even so, it doesn't stop him from snarking about it.
-->'''O'Hara''': Hope the universe doesn't end while I'm trying to save one person.
