** In another part of the story, Redcloak believes he is giving one to O-Chul for choosing to sacrifice several innocent lives just to keep a secret. Specifically, Redcloak is threatening to push them off a tower and into the reality tear if O-Chul won't reveal the secret of the gates (which he doesn't actually know, but Redcloak refuses believe that). Redcloak gets so indignant over how callous the paladin is about innocent lives that he seems to forget ''he's'' the one threatening them. In the end, he lets the prisoners live, certain that seeing how little O-Chul cares about them will ruin their morale, but it only strengthens them to see his resolve.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Vriska is called out by both John and Tavros when she decides [[spoiler:to prototype Jade's sprite with [[RealityWarper Becquerel]], turning [[BigBad Jack Noir]] into a PhysicalGod and [[GameBreaker breaking]] most of the enemies in the kid's session.]] This being [[BaseBreaker Vriska]], of course, whether or not she counts as a "Hero" is debatable.

* Inverted in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''; Richard (a card-carrying 'joyfully and creatively ChaoticEvil' character' with centuries of continuous evil) get a 'what the hell antihero' reaction from hell because by killing/burning an entire village he ACCIDENTALLY did some potential good to the future of the region. This is the only part where we see Richard having a conscience (only he's guilty of doing GOOD)

** Miko Miyazaki gets so many of these that one [[SarcasmMode might suspect]] that Rich Burlew has a serious [[AuthorTract bone to pick]] with characters (in [=RPGs=] or in real life) who twist the rules of law and good so far to meet their own desired ends that they appear evil to anyone else.

** A recent strip subverts it beautifully, with LawfulGood Roy deciding to use ChaoticEvil HeroicComedicSociopath Belkar as live bait to "guide" the giant sandworm they used as an impromptu transportation method. Belkar starts off CallingTheHeroOut, then breaks into laughter, claims he almost managed to go through that with a straight face, and tells them to "dangle (him) away".
