* ''TheMentalist'': Patrick Jane frequently gets called out on his more...unorthodox methods. Considering his revelations also tend to crack cases wide open, he usually gets by with little more than a slap on the wrist, except when things go really over the top and/or his antics insult someone with connections. More severe consequences are occasionally in the offing, though, to the point that after a couple incidents he's lucky to still have his job.

** In the episode "Pen Pals", Data inadvertently begins communicating with a young girl from a pre Warp Capable planet which is facing an apocalypse. Data wishes to assist, but Picard refuses as the [[{{Alien Non-Interference Clause}} Prime Directive]] prevents interference in the natural development of a civilization. Most of the command staff seem willing to leave them to face their imminent demise, however, Geordi and [[DrJerk Pulaski]] are actually willing to call out the other officers on being so dispassionate about a planetary extinction. Nevertheless, Picard orders Data to cease communicating, but upon hearing a transmission of the terrified girl begging Data for help, [[NotSoStoic he agrees to violate the [[{{Alien Non-Interference Clause}} Prime Directive]] and help.]]

-->'''Picard:''' I asked you a question, Cadet. -->'''Wesley:''' I... choose not to answer, sir. -->'''Picard:''' You choose not to answer... and yet you've already given an answer to the inquiry... and that answer was a lie. -->'''Wesley:''' I said the accident occurred after the loop, and it did. -->'''Picard:''' But you neglected to mention the fact that following the loop your team executed a dangerous maneuver which was the direct cause of the crash. Yes, you told the truth... [[FromACertainPointOfView but only to a point]]. And a lie of omission is still a lie. Do you remember the day you first came aboard this ship? Your mother brought you to the bridge... -->'''Wesley:''' Yes. -->'''Picard:''' You even sat in my chair. It annoyed me at first... a presumptuous child playing on my ship. But I never forgot the way you knew every control and display before you ever set foot on the bridge. You acted like you belonged there. -->'''Wesley:''' I remember. -->'''Picard:''' Later, when I decided to make you an acting ensign, I was convinced you would be an outstanding officer. I've never questioned that conviction... until now. [[TitleDrop The first duty]] of every Starfleet officer is to the truth. Whether it's scientific truth, or historical truth, or personal truth. It is the guiding principle upon which Starfleet is based. And if you can't find it within yourself to stand up and tell the truth about what happened, you don't deserve to wear that uniform. Mister Crusher, I'll make this simple for you. Either you come forward and tell Admiral Brand what really took place... or I will. -->'''Wesley:''' Captain... -->'''Picard:''' Dismissed. ** In the episode "Homeward", a primitive culture is also facing an imminent apocalypse, and the crew refused to help because of [[{{Alien Non-Interference Clause}} Prime Directive]] concerns. The entire crew is willing to let the population die, with one exception who transports the population up from the planet and into the Holodeck, and [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight he feels pretty damn justified in doing so, even if he'll be a criminal in the Federation from that point on]].

** In ''The Peacekeeper Wars'', Crichton finally gets a chance to employ what everyone's wanted since he came into their neck of space: a wormhole weapon. In doing so, he threatens all of space, and members like Rygel try to hit Crichton with this trope, but he reverses it and turns it into BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, noting that, essentially, ''they asked for it''.

* In the ''RedDwarf'' episode 'Terrorform', in order to escape the AnthropomorphicPersonification of [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Rimmer's]] own dispair, hug him and tell him that they care about him, raising his self-esteem high enough for them to escape. ''They then almost instantly'' then go back on their words, answering his self-deprecating questions about if they really meant it with a resounding "NO." ''despite having seen his self-loathing and messed up psyche first hand''.

** ''Exile'' (and part of the next episode, ''Phoenix''): Clark is BrainwashedAndCrazy due to red kryptonite and spent his summer living a life of crime in Metropolis. It wasn't really him, since the red k is a potent mind-altering substance for Kryptonians, but it doesn't stop him from being chewed out by pretty much everyone.

** In ''Truth'', Chloe temporarily gets the power to compel people to tell her the truth, and immediately becomes DrunkWithPower, as she starts prancing around the school terrorizing the entire student body just for kicks. Perhaps the worst moment is when Chloe forcibly outs a closeted gay football player in front of the rest of the school, and then stands there smirking and laughing at him. Needless to say, that scene is ''definitely'' HarsherInHindsight. Clark is horrified by her behavior, but his complaints don't do anything to deter her from continuing her behavior, she only stops after she has a near-death experience at the end of the episode and loses her power. ** ''Prey'': Clark [[spoiler:steals Chloe's list of the meteor infected and gives it to the police]] because he's hoping it will help solve a murder and prevent future ones. Nevertheless she is ''not'' happy. ** ''Bride'': [[spoiler:[[TheScrappy Lana]]]] of all people berates Clark for [[spoiler:not restoring Chloe's Brainiac-wiped memories of his secret]], with Clark arguing that he was hoping that this would keep Chloe safe. ** ''Requiem'': Chloe does not like Oliver's decision to kill [[spoiler:LexLuthor to stop him from nuking Metropolis and pin Lex's death on one of his minions who actually ''was'' guilty of murder, just not that particular one]]. Oliver then points out that A. [[spoiler: Lex]] would have nuked the city and gone on to do other horrible things (and the comics show that he's correct in this assessment) and that B. [[NotSoDifferent he knows Chloe]] [[spoiler:{{Mind Rape}}d a bad guy into a catatonic state to protect Clark; the show keeps it deliberately ambiguous whether this was completely her decision or Brainiac's, but Chloe gets flabbergasted and puts up a very flimsy defense.]] Oliver then points out that ultimately, to protect Clark or the world, Chloe would do similar things. Chloe quite tellingly falls silent. And ultimately, she admits he's right in saying this, and she becomes more of an open KnightTemplar. ** ''Savior'': Clark refuses to [[spoiler:go back and save Jimmy]] despite Chloe's pleas. While he does have a good reason for denying her request (he discovered in Season 5 that preventing one person's death via time travel will merely result in someone ''else'' dying--usually someone else in the same circle of acquaintances--and he does not want to let this happen again), Chloe is so [[BreakTheCutie broken]] by now it is hard not to sympathize with her. Then again, Clark knows that if he tries this, it will result in more deaths, and he refuses to allow that to happen. ** ''Disciple'': Clark does one to Chloe when she tells him [[spoiler:[[TheDogWasTheMastermind she set up the series of death traps and trials]] in ''Roulette'' against Oliver.]] ** ''Conspiracy'': Oliver is shocked to know Chloe is [[spoiler:making kryptonite weapons. Or, to put it bluntly, weapons designed to kill Clark and his kind.]]
