* Done in the climax of ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'' StoryArc ''[[ComicBook/TheKangWar Kang Dynasty]]'': Cap agrees to a one-on-one fight with Kang to conclude the war, with Thor preventing their teammates from interfering, citing this trope. The heroes protest vehemently, claiming that a monster like Kang deserves a group beatdown and not an honorable fight. Thor replies that its one-on-one not out of respect, but because Cap alone would be sufficient.

* In RWBY, right before Jaune's fight with the Ursa Major begins, Pyrrha arrives with help but tells everyone to stand back instead and let him deal with the Grimm on his own. Subverted in that she ends up stealthly using her Semblence to move Jaune's shield just enough to block a slash from the beast.

* In ''SoulEater'' Sid sees the fight between Black Star and Mifune as this when Nygus wants to intervene. Possibly justified in that Sid recognised the fight could determine whether Black Star risks ending up like his father or could find his own 'path' (it does, and he does), but also moral dissonance considering the honour over reason mentality.

[[spoiler:Carter herself calls him out on it via hallucination.]]
