When the hero lets the BigBad go, or refuses to [[KillHimAlready off]] a dangerous character (thanks to the KarmicDeath scenario), he will sometimes be quite depressed that justice wasn't served. Invariably, his [[TheLancer Lancer]] will tell him, "YouDidTheRightThing". Invariably, this will never satisfy the hero.

A common subversion is to have the YouDidTheRightThing speech, then have the hero say, "I was out of bullets," or other conveyance that he was un''able'', rather than un''willing'', to kill.

* When Anakin ends up beheading Count Dooku in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', he gets a bit bent up about it considering it wasn't the Jedi way. [[EvilMentor Palpatine]], however, ensures him that [[YouDidTheRightThing he did the right thing]], since Dooku was far too dangerous. Of course, this might be NotQuiteTheRightThing, as this ends up being one step for Anakin in [[FaceHeelTurn turning to the dark side]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' has two cases of this. One BadEnding is a subversion, where the person you help proceeds to [[EvilGloating gloat]]. The other one [[spoiler:involves you handing a needed page to Atrus's linking book to Myst so that he can deal with his sons' betrayal, and is played much more straight.]]
--> '''[[spoiler:Sirrus]]:''' Thank you, my friend. My dear friend. You've done the right thing. You '''''[[UnwittingPawn STUPID]] [[YouFool FOOL]]'''''!

** Londo tells Vir something similar to the doctor's response after he [[spoiler:assassinates Emperor Cartagia]]. Londo also notes that the fact that doing this made Vir sick to his stomach is proof that Vir's soul is far pure than Londo's own.
