* Minor villain Pascal Grentzer from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Blazing Sword]]'' asserts his status as perhaps the vilest individual in the game when, upon being released from prison, he attempts an IHaveYouNowMyPretty on his liberator...who happens to be a DarkMagicalGirl {{Manipulative B|astard}}itch mom who could quite easily turn him inside-out with magic. She quickly asserts control over him, but what he would've done to anyone less willful is disturbingly clear...
** Granted, Ike had his time during his own ''Fire Emblem'' games, he earns himself another one in his first appearance in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Brawl'''s Subspace Emissary. You've just seen Marth and Meta Knight fail to stop the Ancient Minister and his bomb. He flies off, thinking he's won. Suddenly from behind you see a BFS slowly rise from behind him as epic music starts to play. Ike then jumps up to catch it for his signature move Aether (he yells "Great Aether" just because it's cooler that way) and easily slices down the bomb the Ancient Minister was carrying, disarming it (becoming the only character ever to do so) and he strikes a pose as the Ancient Minister flies off into the distance.

* In ''VideoGame/ConceptionTwoChildrenOfTheSevenStars'', Chlotz is introduced risking his life to protect a classmate, even though both are unarmed, and refusing to give up despite injury...Then, once the danger is over, he makes a perverted joke about her. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Yeah]].

* ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'': The bathroom scene in the first episode serves as a nice one for Max and Chloe, as well as Nathan (who serves as TheHeavy).
** Max gets stressed from class, makes her way to the bathroom while wearing her headphones to avoid interacting with anyone to try to collect herself alone in the bathroom, then sees something cool and photographs it. After developing her powers, and despite not having a clue what's going on, [[ChronicHeroSyndrome she endeavours to rescue the (apparent) stranger who just got shot]].
** Nathan aggressively barges in with barely any awareness. He also gives himself a pep talk while looking in the mirror, but which quickly turns into a rant about how he could blow up the school. After Chloe pushes his buttons (by bringing the possibility of angering his father), he draws a gun to threaten her and accidentally kills her.
** Chloe enters confidentially, sneaks in a complaint about her step father David, methodically (but quickly) makes sure there's nobody in the stalls and then immediately starts trying to blackmail Nathan. When her browbeating accidentally sets Nathan off, she lets her mask slip enough to look scared while trying to threaten him into backing down, and when Max sets off the fire alarm as a distraction she knees him in the crotch before slinking off.

** Two more moments come just after this. When Doomguy reclaims the Praetor Suit, when Samuel attempts to greet him, he throws the monitor into the wall. And when he does so again in the elevator, stating that what they were doing was for all mankind, Doomguy takes a very deliberate glance at the mutilated corpse at his feet (as if to say "tell that to ''him'', you son of a bitch") before ''smashing the speaker in'', clearly having had more than enough of all of this.

** Two more moments come just after this. When Doomguy reclaims the Praetor Suit, Samuel Hayden shows up on voice comm, introducing himself and telling him he believes that they can work together in a way that benefits them both. Doomguy's response is to grab the screen Hayden is using to communicate and ''hurl it into a wall''. The elevator scene just before the main title is even more pronounced -- as Hayden is explaining that the UAC messed with Hell to benefit mankind, Doomguy pointedly looks down at the dead guy in the elevator with him (as if to say "tell that to ''him'', you son of a bitch"), just before putting his fist through the speaker, clearly having had enough of all of this.

** Illuminati sysadmin Leah Cassini makes her character clear before she even starts talking to the player: introduced in the middle of a phone call, she asks, "[[HaveYouTriedRebooting Have you tried turning it off and on?]] No? [[{{GIFT}} Then please kill yourself]]." For good measure, in between making it clear that she's [[SinisterSurveillance watching virtually everything you do]], she has to stop and [[NoSocialSkills ask you not to make eye contact]].



** All seven of the Sentinels get a chance to demonstrate their respective characters over the course of their mission set: In "The Dark Places," [[OnlySaneMan Thutmose]] tries to keep peace between Nefertari and Hemineter]]; in "The Stained Oasis," [[InsufferableGenius Nefertari]] solemnly informs the player of the sacred balance in the universe and advises patience (despite Hemineter's repeated interruptions); in "The Sad Song," [[TheWoobie Moutemouia]] reflects on how miserable her [[WhoWantsToLiveForever immortal stewardship]] has become, pausing only to reassure Houy that [[ParentalSubstitute she isn't going to abandon him]]; in "Blood and Fire," [[ActionGirl Hemineter]] takes a break from getting on Nefertari's nerves to break the rules and take the fight to the Atenists; in "They Were Beautiful Once," [[CoolBigSister Moutnefert]] immediately begins bombarding you with questions about the world outside the City, clearly wishing she could travel as she once did; in "Halls of Lost Records," [[CheerfulChild Nefertari the Younger]] [[TheBeastMaster speaks with the animals of the City]], gently encouraging them to spy on the Atenists; and in "A Farewell To Arms," [[DontFearTheReaper Houy]] attempts to raise an important point with his older siblings, only to end up [[NotNowKid getting overlooked due to his youth and innocence]] and having to spell things out more bluntly.

** Sitting alone on the roof of the ghoul-infested Hotel Wahid, Saïd already looks out of place in the war-torn desert even from a distance, being dressed as he is in a [[ManInWhite crisp white suit]] and [[NiceHat fedora]]. Then you get a good look at him in "The High Cost Of Dying": he's actually an ancient Egyptian {{Mummy}}, complete with empty eye-sockets barely hidden by his CoolShades. There's a long pause as he considers you... and then [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu he takes a photo of you with his phone]]. Then he drags you into a business meeting, bombarding you with details at a pace that would make Kirsten Geary nod with approval, all while making it clear that he's an avaricious, self-important, and infuriatingly charming undead bastard.

** The Oxford occult archaeological team: upon being approached by an angry mummy, [[BadassGrandpa Montgomery de la Roche]] casually impales it on his SwordCane - only for his sword to get stuck in the thing's stomach, forcing [[AdventurerArchaeologist Arun Singh]] to come to his rescue with a HandCannon; he then helps Monty to his feet, showing a surprising amount of intimacy for simple coworkers. As it becomes clear, Monty's the GentlemanAdventurer, Arun's the [[TheWormGuy unconventional young scientist]], and they're in love.
