* HarryPotter''Literature/HarryPotter'':



** In the last book, Remus Lupin offered his service toward Harry Potter while at the same time, [[ParentalAbandonment leaving his wife and unborn son,]] believing that they will be better off without him. In response, Harry (who is an orphan, and had gone through miserable treatment from Dursleys), [[WhatTheHellHero calmly and viciously points out his cowardice]] and preference to [[DeathSeeker "die in glory"]] than become a good father. He's snapped, but it had the desirable effect: Remus returned to his wife afterwards.
