* Ebisu in ''Manga/{{Noragami}}'' doesn't care for the law or common opinion. He just wants to help people and humanity. He takes in plenty of Nora (who are often despised by gods and shinki) and treats them kindly and in turn, they are loyal to him. He also attempts to [[spoiler: control Ayakashi to manipulate them away from the living]] at great cost to his health.

* Jirou of ''Anime/ConcreteRevolutioChoujinGensou'' will go beyond the call of his duty as a government agent to do what's right (in his definition of "justice"). This may be the reason why he leaves the Superhuman Bureau at some point in the near future.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', Kira is a little disgusted at the fact that Lacus is being treated as both a prisoner and a bargaining chip onboard the ''Archangel'' and works with his friends to get her out. Shinn does this to Stella in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', but it doesn't work out as well as the previous example.

** In the Dressrosa arc, Fujitora, one of the new admirals after the TimeSkip, does this in a very, very WhamEpisode: [[spoiler:when Luffy defeats Donquixote Doflamingo, the man starts up a broadcast to the local islands, ensuring that the rest of the world finds out, too, and informs them that Doflamingo had been defeated '''''BY LUFFY''''', and then offers his apologies on behalf of the Marines.]] The very livid Fleet Admiral contacts Fujitora, and the latter responds basically like this.

* The Namekian Fusion technique is somewhat considered this in ''[[Manga/DragonBall Dragon Ball Z]]'', as Nail and Kami have mentioned that the technique is stated to be forbidden amonst the Namekian populace. However, considering the cases in which the Fusions were made to fight against ([[spoiler:Frieza and Cell]],) it still fits this Trope.
