* The HGame VisualNovel ''Life with a Slave: Teaching Feeling'' is literally "VideogameCaringPotential: The Game". You play as a small city doctor who one day is visited by a wandering merchant whose life you had once saved who has come to repay his debt to you. He entrusts you with a [[TheWoobie small, horrifically abused former slave girl]] called Sylvie whose [[CompleteMonster former master]] (now deceased) used to torture her daily for fun, leaving her with grotesque acid burns all over her body. The entire focus of the game is caring for her, repairing her damaged psyche with kindness, compassion and [[MemeticMutation head pats]] and, as the name suggests, teaching her to feel again, until she learns to be happy, hopeful and eventually fall in love with you. It's in fact ''mandatory'' to treat her this way as, although you start out being given options to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential treat her poorly, or even rape her right off the bat]], these are all traps as treating her in any way other than pure kindness will lead to her unavoidably [[IncurableCoughOfDeath catching a cold]] [[DownerEnding and dying]][[note]]This can lead to the almost laughably tragic scenario where she dies because you bought her sandwiches for lunch when you took her to the restaurant rather than pancakes[[/note]]. It's also worth noting that, although the game is a [[HGame hardcore eroge]] with a big emphasis on sexual content (once you reach the stage where she's both willing and able to freely consent to it), there are several people who have reportedly played it by actually rejecting her advances, skipping ''all'' the sexual content, getting Sylvie to call them "Daddy" and raising her as their ''daughter,'' because she's just ''that'' {{Moe}}.

* A new gameplay feature that was added in ''VideoGame/WatchDogs2'' took the ATM hacking this way. The original purpose as used by [[VideoGame/WatchDogs Aiden]] was to siphon money from bank accounts without people knowing. Marcus, however, has the option to do the opposite, ''giving'' money to NPCs he sees in the city. And just like the original, there's no repercussion or acknowledgement for doing so.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' has Sherry Birkin, a twelve-year-old girl whom player character Claire Redfield must protect. Sure, she's not as handy as Leon's partner character ({{Badass}} LadyInRed Ada Wong), but she's just so ''[[DeliberatelyCuteChild adorable]]''. What's more, when you walk through a level with Sherry in tow, and you stop long enough for her to catch up, she walks up and holds Claire's hand. It's hard not to feel at least a ''little'' protective of her.

* It's not a video game, but being nice saved the players' bacon in ''Roleplay/RubyQuest''. Had they not tranquilized Stitches and left him a portrait of the Metal Glen's patients happy together (from before everything went to hell in a handbasket), then [[spoiler: He wouldn't have pulled an AndroclesLion and saved them from [[ImplacableMan Ace]]. They also managed to make the ending just that much sweeter by [[spoiler: saving another patient, Jay, who was trapped in the water filtration system by hooks]]. It's notable that they weren't ''supposed'' to do this, as they were only able to take Stitches down non-lethally because they [[CuttingTheKnot bashed open]] a cabinet with tranquilizer inside instead of getting the key, [[spoiler: and Weaver had never even considered that they would try to save Jay, and allowed it because he couldn't see any reason why they ''couldn't'' do it, as Jay wasn't locked up or anything.]]

* It's not a video game, but being nice saved the players' bacon in ''Roleplay/RubyQuest''. Had they not given Stitches the group portrait, he probably wouldn't have [[spoiler: pulled an AndroclesLion and saved them from Ace, allowing Tom to escape with Ruby]], and they [[spoiler: managed to save another victim, Jay]]. It's notable because [[OffTheRails they weren't supposed to do this]], as Stitches [[spoiler: and Jay]] were supposed to be [[MercyKill Mercy Killed]].

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' currently doesn't implement ways of dealing with romantic rivals other than to MurderTheHypotenuse, but one planned feature for keeping rivals away from Senpai is to play TheMatchmaker and set up rivals with other students who have feelings for them.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' currently doesn't implement ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', being [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what the name suggests]], contains a lot of ways of dealing with romantic rivals other than to creatively MurderTheHypotenuse, but one planned feature for keeping rivals away from Senpai is to play TheMatchmaker or just ruin their lives. However, there are two methods that don't require hurting the rivals- Befriending (in which you help a rival out with major life problems, and they're so grateful they give up on being a rival) and Matchmaking (in which you set them up rivals with other students who have feelings for them.with crushes on them).

* ''[[VideoGame/TombRaiderUnderworld Tomb Raider: Underworld]]'' added tranquilizer guns to Lara Croft's arsenal, giving players the option to take out some enemies non-lethally. This is no doubt an attempt to salvage Lara's reputation as a coldblooded killer who guns down endangered tigers with no remorse.
