* In the first scene of ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', starts out similarly to ''End of Evangelion'' with Shinji visiting a comatose Asuka in NERV's infirmary. He accidentally gets Asuka's gown unbuttoned, and he realizes he can do to her whatever he wanted and no one would ever find out. However, signalling the beginning of the divergent storyline, he catches himself and quickly covers her up before leaving the room, feeling profoundly disgusted with himself.

* Back during the original run of ''ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}}'' (when everyone still believes the disguised villains to be heroes) Franchise/SpiderMan is framed for murder, and the T-Bolts are assigned to apprehend him. At first, MACH-1 (who was formerly Spidey's enemy the Beetle) relishes the thought, but after he and the rest of the team fight alongside Spidey against the true threat, he throws away the chance to make the charge stick and get away with it, giving Spidey the evidence that clears him. Why? He realizes he's supposed to be the hero, and after teaming up with his old foe, [[BecomingTheMask it's starting to grow on him.]] As he tells Moonstone on the last page of the comic, "This hero stuff... I think it's starting to become ''contagious''..."

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "The Inhuman Torch", Bender is accused of starting fires in order to put them out and look like a hero, but it was actually started by a fire creature from the sun (whom Bender names Flamo). In order to keep Flamo from burning the Earth into a small star, Bender takes it to the Arctic Circle, where no one will find him, know about the fate he spared them from, and most importantly, he won't be hailed as a hero.

** In one of the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' books, Wedge Antilles leaves the command station where he'd been directing a crucial battle, only to find that his shuttle had been destroyed. The only craft available is an X-Wing with damaged comms and no astromech. After taking off in it, he finds a civilian transport under attack by an enemy squadron, and bravely annihilates them by himself, but loses his shields in the process. When a second squadron heads towards them, he has a choice: if he stays to fight the squadron, he will almost certainly die, and, as he is in an extra fighter that was assigned to no one and he can't comm anyone to tell them where he is, his family and friends will never learn what became of him. He will die alone and unnamed. Or, he could abandon the transport, having already fought valiantly to save him. No one could blame him for retreating in the face of certain death after having already given his all. Wedge turns to face the approaching squadron head on. Because it's Wedge, the best damn X-Wing pilot in history, ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome he wins]]''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': The Shadows selves in the hidden MentalWorld of the Palace represent the twisted secret feelings of the respective adults you target. Similarly, when characters' Persona first awaken, they encourage their other selves to ignore society's expectations and unleash their true rage / vengeance / etc. on those who have wronged them.

** The music video plays a straight example in the final chorus; after spending the rest of the video watching tragedies and crimes unfold around him, the point-of-view character stops a child from running into the street after his toy and getting hit by a truck. The child's mother, too distracted by her phone, never notices the peril or the rescue.

*** The turns out to be HarsherInHindsight. [[spoiler: At this point, The audience is under the impression The Doctor has three regenerations remaining. "Day of the Doctor" reveals a previously unknown regeneration, The War Doctor. "Time of the Doctor" revealed that Ten's seemingly aborted regeneration in "The Stolen Earth/Journey's End" actually counted. As a result, Ten believed he was entering his final incarnation.]]

* Defied to some extent in ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''; the Archdeacon is trying to convince [[BigBad Judge Frollo]] that he should spare Quasimodo after killing the child's mother. Frollo is initially dismissive, but changes his tune after the Deacon says that while no mortal would know, killing a child before the steps of Notre Dame would certainly draw God's Wrath (in essence, there is never a moment where he or anyone else is truly alone in the dark).
