* ''Disney/TheRescuers'' has Bernard singing the RAS anthem by himself just outside the meeting hall. When Bianca sees him doing that, that is enough proof for her of how deeply he values the organization's ideals. Bernard was merely the janitor at the time, and the other representatives/agents who were in the meeting hall were being far less reverent of the anthem.
* [[{{Disney/Tarzan}} Disney's Tarzan]] has [[BigBad Clayton]] give Tarzan the choice of shooting him with his own double-barreled shotgun with no one else around: "Go ahead, shoot me, [[IronicEcho be a man]]". Tarzan's reply? ''Mimicking'' the sound of the gun being shot to put some fear into Clayton before smashing said shotgun in front of him. "Not a man like ''you''."



* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie'' Charlie Brown winds up getting the perfect score on a test. Because of this, all the kids in school and town, barring Lucy, view him as a genius, which earns him a large amount of popularity. [[spoiler:During an award ceremony for passing the test, he discovers that he and Peppermint Patty accidentally signed their names on each other's test sheets when they were rushing to turn the papers in - she's the one who really got the perfect score. He's the only one who knows the truth, and if he wanted to could continue to keep it a secret, keeping his newfound popularity in the process. Instead he confesses the screw-up to everyone and tells them that Peppermint Patty was the one who aced the test. This turns out to be one of the main factors to winning the Little Red-Haired Girl's heart.]]

* TheIronGiant: When Hogarth first encounters the Giant, he witnesses it accidentally tangling itself up in and getting electrocuted by power lines out in a secluded power station after dark. Terrified out of his mind, he has a chance to run home through the woods in the dark with no one the wiser, not even the Giant. However, as he hears is ''screaming'' in pain he realizes that he can't leave it to suffer, and so risks his own personal safety to shut off the power to save its life, despite still thinking its dangerous and having no expectation that it'll notice or feel grateful later. (Thankfully for Hogarth, [[GentleGiant it]] [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe does]].)
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Moana}}'' gives us something sweet at the start. Baby Moana is down at the beach and sees a pretty seashell and really wants it, but she sees a little baby turtle scared of the birds trying to eat it as it's trying to get to the water. No one would blame her if she were to just get the shell at that age, but Moana grabs a leaf and protects it from the birds, losing the shell in the process. This is what makes the ocean choose her.

* ''VideoGame/DeadRising4'' takes place 15 years after the original Mall outbreak and features Frank West, now in his 50s, who is no longer the decided and eager reporter looking to break important stories to help mankind, but a [[StoppedCaring cynical, angry, and disillusioned]] school teacher who no longer believes in doing that right thing, but doing what it takes to survive. This is because of the years he watched as evil people and groups got away with causing the outbreak without any punishment. [[spoiler: After a student of his talks him into investigating another conspiracy dealing with the zombie virus, he slowly gets his passion he once lost back, and by the end of the game, once again becomes the Frank West who cares again.]]

** Also one of their marks that they were using to get to their target has one. Despite him clearly wanting to move up in the Bad Guy's operation, when his boss tells him that the "new recruits" he has been working with will be sacrificed in their next score, the guy lies to his recruits that the boss wouldn't be using them so they wouldn't be killed. After Micheal reveals what he intends to do, the guy helps Micheal then goes legit.

** One episode has this work ''against'' them with a ruthless mob boss being tricked into stealing a large shipment with Sam acting undercover as an enforcer from the higher-ups who wanted the boss dead but changed sides upon being promised a big cut. Earlier, in order to convince the boss to get involved with the heist personally, Sam reluctantly relates a real story from his SEAL days about how he did everything he could to get an injured comrade to safety. The heist goes off as planned, but the boss, who was supposed to drive away and be intercepted by authorities with the shipment while Sam pretended to be captured, has a moment of conscience and goes back to "save" him, abandoning the shipment and forcing Team Westen to come up with a new plan.

If equipped with a magical ring that gives invisibility (and thus freedom from consequence), Plato believed that anyone would act purely in his own self-interest.
