Galad isn't LS. He isn't even lawful good. Move to remove the example. For that matter, Rand certainly isn't LG, so he can't be LS. He (and as mentioned, virtually every male from nearly every country on the main continent) has a blind spot. This is worth discussing, but it isn't this trope. So I guess I think the entire Wo T entry should be removed. If he's anything (and he's too complicated a character to pigeonhole that way) he's NG. Galad has a code of conduct that he holds himself to, and the laws of the land are at best something to be weighted in his decision (My sister channels. Channeling is illegal in Amadcia, where we are. But I like my sister, and she's a good person, therefore I won't turn her in to be horrible murdered) If he decided the right thing to do was a single man, full frontal assault on the royal palace and killing every guard in his way, he'd do it without a second thought. Unless you subscribe to the (IMO nonsensical) notion that a character having his/her own code that he/she will always obey somehow makes them Lawful. If my code is to murder every 8th person I see, no exceptions, am I lawful evil? Maybe this is why the rule restricting examples to works in which alignment is already a canonical thing exists.

- Detective Jim Lipton, from Dead Silence. He is legitimately convinced that Jamie Ashen killed his wife based solely on the fact that Ashen gave her flowers prior to her death (it was their anniversary). He ignores the one real piece of evidence, ignores common sense, and actively breaks the law for the sole purpose of harassing an acquitted man, going so far as to attempt to arrest Ashen without cause and threaten him with a shotgun- again, without cause or provocation.

Someone on this board has a mad on for the Guardians of the Green Lantern Mythos. Removed this.
- The Guardians of the Universe have done some phenomenally stupid shit, namely creating the Manhunters, an entire legion of Lawful Stupid police androids, and letting them run wild. This is exactly why Sinestro opposes the Guardians - because they're by far and large a bunch of hypocritical, conceited, inept assholes.

I have removed many examples that actually seems to be more suited to lawful Evil

I think we should use Kore giving his speech to the dwarf child for the Lawful Stupid. For one thing, the Saruman one has Saruman assuming the players are Stupid Good.
