Compare ThankYourPrey, which can easily overlap; SorryIFellOnYourFist, where the victim apologizes; WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou, where the manipulative attacker merely pretends to feel guilty; and MyFistForgivesYou, where the attacker is quickly settling a score. If the attacker apologizes beforehand without explaining why, it's a PreemptiveApology.

* In ''VideoGame/MightyNumberNine'', while none of the Mighty Numbers ''want'' to fight you, almost all of them have succumbed to the virus by the time you reach them and crazily attack Beck. The sole exception is Brandish, who's only just starting to get affected when you reach his level. As a result he spends most of said level begging for you to turn back because he doesn't want to hurt you when he loses control. When you fight him at the end, he apologizes, encourages you to stop him, and even occasionally yells out advice to you, such as warning you when he's going to perform an aerial attack.
