Has anyone ever seen the inversion of this?
I.e. when a character awards everybody, who shows basic decency, as if it was something special (because said person lives a crapsack-world life)
For posterity, here is the YKTTW archive for this trope and here is the TRS thread that lead to renaming it.
Virtue Is Own Reward is a misleading title. For the person in question, virtue is definitely not enough of a reward.
