** This is also how Tidus meets Yuna, and arguably, an EstablishingCharacterMoment; after learning that the apprentice summoner has been inside the Cloister of Trials for over a day, he decides to go in after her, yelling "Like I care!" when he's told it's taboo to do so.

(in the HD Remake, you get a trophy named "The Right Thing")

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', Ryder and the other Pathfinders (the salarian Pathfinder, and depending on the outcome of side missions the turian and asari Pathfiders as well) defy direct orders from the directorship of the Andromeda Initiative not to seek out the Remnant city of Meridian, lest they provoke the kett to attack the Initiative directly. [[spoiler:Director Tann does a rather embarrassing and obviously political about-face on the matter after the mission succeeds.]]

The Pathfinders reason that a confrontation with the kett is coming regardless and it's better that it come on the Initiative's terms.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'', Captain Kayto Shields is willing to bend or break the rules when it comes to helping his crew. This is best exemplified during Operation Wedding Crash: when [[NumberTwo Ava]] pulls out a rulebook to cite military regulations on why he shouldn’t directly participate in the mission to rescue [[spoiler:Asaga]], [[ButThouMust Kayto can respond with “No” or “HELL no”]]. Picking the latter will make Kayto yank the rulebook out of her hands and tear it up.

* This isn't uncommon in the story of ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'', but the most prominent is [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized the King's Row Uprising]] seven years prior to the game's present day, where the Omnic extremist group Null Sector attacked King's Row in London. The problem is, due to reputation issues, Overwatch was not allowed to operate in England by order of the Prime Minister. Commander Morrison (presently known as Soldier 76), of course, wasn't the sort to let people just be slaughtered, and was stewing over the problem of ToBeLawfulOrGood until Tracer came into his office and convinced him to side with good, consequences be damned. And his decision paid off, as Overwatch successfully smashed Null Sector's control in King's Row and thwarted the uprising, though the political and diplomatic consequences of the operation have yet to be elaborated on.[[note]]Despite the unambiguous success that saved thousands of lives, Overwatch ''did'' violate Prime Ministerial orders and encroach on British sovereignty as a result, and the massive egg in the face of the Prime Minister (not allowing Overwatch to perform the operation legally would've been explosive politically and would've handed political ammunition to the opposition party - after all, if he had allowed Overwatch to operate immediately and with more teams, who knows how many more lives might've been saved) and the British military (due to a team of four operatives doing what they couldn't) wouldn't exactly go over well, either.[[/note]]

* In ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'', one of the secret scenarios has [[spoiler:Trunks going back to his timeline and saving Future Gohan from the Androids despite this being a ''massive'' breach in Time Patroller protocol. The Supreme Kai of Time and the Elder Kai discuss both the potential good and bad of this and consult the PlayerCharacter on what they should do. Choosing to let it be, though, has the Supreme Kai of Time accept the answer, but warn that this is ultimately her call, so going in and fixing the timeline so that Gohan dies is not off the table.]]

** Earlier, before they leave Traverse Town, Donald and Goofy inform Sora that [[AlienNonInterferenceClause in order to preserve the worlds' order, they can't meddle in the affairs of other worlds]], but when Sora sees [[Disney/AliceInWonderland Alice]] being subjected to a KangarooCourt, he promptly chooses to ignore that; in any event, the sheer scope of the villains' plans eventually make it impossible for the heroes ''not'' to meddle.

* In the ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' series, this is what the Paladin is expected to do. It only comes up in the third game, where [[spoiler: the laws of Tarna are dooming a thief to death by starvation]], and technically, all heroes are supposed to do the same thing, but the general idea of a paladin that is maintained throughout the series are that they are forces of good, not justice.
