%% * This is basically the whole plot of The ''Film/ButterCreamGang''.''Film/TheButtercreamGang'': Pete used to be a member of the titular gang, dedicated to good deeds, but at one point got influenced by bad company and became a delinquent. Pete is by His best friend Scott adopts a non-aggressive attitude whenever he's threatened by physical violence by Pete, and the town's local store owner outright offers him money when he tries to rob the store, just so he couldn't say he robbed him. This leaves Pete absolutely confounded, not understanding why someone would do that instead of defending themselves or seeking revenge, and in the latter case causes him to resort to outright trashing the store, demanding someone retaliate against him. When no one does, he runs away.

Not to be confused with TooKinkyToTorture, this is actually a form of retribution[=/=]{{forgiveness}}. A character returns cruelty not with anger but with kindness and shows themselves to be the most philanthropic idealist imaginable.

* In ''Manga/AngelDensetsu'' when [[AxCrazy Ikuno]] beats [[TheWoobie Kitano]] within an inch of his life because of a promise she made to a boy, he kept rising until the boy told her to stop out of grief. Upon being told by Ikuno that Its All My Fault that she beats him, he promptly collapses. Why? Because he thinks he made her so angry that he deserved every punch and kicks Ikuno threw at him. He collapses in relief because that meant their friendship would now not be in trouble as he didn't do anything wrong. My God...

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' had Huey narrate a story about an AlternateHistory where Martin Luther King Jr survived getting shot and simply went into a coma, waking up decades later in our present day. When interviewed about the 9/11 bombings, King, as mentioned in the Real Life section, affirms his belief in this trope. Unfortunately for Dr King, this is the bloodthirsty post-9/11 America, which immediatly decries him as a traitor, a coward, a communist, and any other word they can come up with, even his own original supporters. This, combined with his disgust at what modern black culture has become in his absence, eventually leads to Dr King giving a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the people who deify him while ignoring everything he actually stands for, and abandoning the U.S to go to Canada.

* ''TheJeffersons''. George Jefferson accidentally finds himself at a meeting of white supremacists. When the leader has a heart attack, George gives him CPR. (This is uncharacteristically nice of George, although afterwards he says "I should've inhaled."). As the leader is taken out on a gurney, his equally militant son explains what George had done. The man responds "''He'' saved my life? You should have let me die." The son, however quits the group.
