* Inverted in a ComicBook/JusticeLeague storyline about a villain named Prometheus, who is obsessed with the ''eradication'' of justice. His plan to destroy the League involves disguising himself as a superhero named Retro, whose catch phrase is "here comes justice!" After disabling half the League and revealing his true identity, Prometheus [[IronicEcho repeats the phrase]] one more time, this time with malicious sarcasm.

** A memorable quote from '''Donquixote Doflamingo''' (which also incorporates WrittenByTheWinners): ''"Pirates are evil? The Marines are righteous? These terms have always changed throughout the course of history! [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Kids who have never seen peace and kids who have never seen war have different values!]] Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! [[MightMakesRight WHOEVER WINS THIS WAR... BECOMES JUSTICE!]]"''
*** In the Marineford arc (which contains the above quote), the war between Whitebeard (the commander of the world's most powerful pirate fleet) and the Marines brings the theme of "which kind of justice?" to the forefront.
*** This is a pretty blasphemous statement to make in a {{shonen}} manga, where clearly defined clashes between good and evil are usually major themes. So when a character basically says that good and evil are just labels the winning side in a conflict uses to justify its actions, it's a moment to take note of as this is rarely seen in a shounen genre.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' had an alternate reality set in what amounts to the Golden Age of comics. The heroes were fond of catchphrases like "Let justice prevail!" The Justice League found the lines rather corny, but in the end it's shown that these are still ''heroes'' giving these lines, no matter how cheesy the setting is. [[spoiler:They all willingly die to take down the villain maintaining an illusory world after a nuclear war ruined the world, knowing that they too are mere illusions. They give their catch phrase one last time before going into their last fight.]]

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' faith in this concept is part of the mindset of two Knights of the Cross who, at different times, wield ''Fidelacchius'', aka The Sword of Faith.
** One is a police officer who believes in Justice, that the bad people will be stopped and good will thrive. Her belief in the pursuit of Justice allows [[spoiler:an Angel of the Lord to speak through her when facing ancient hordes of vampires who will now receive some well-deserved retribution for their centuries, and in some cases millennia, worth of evil actions]].
** The other is [[spoiler:a Star Wars geek, who before reawakening the Sword's dormant powers, believing Good will triumph over evil and that one person can make a difference, runs into a fight with the sole intention of delaying an enemy attack. His Faith in Justice and these other concepts causes the Sword to be reforged into a symbol of his faith; a beam of angelic light emitting a low thrum as light pulsed from it]].
