* In ''Film/{{Dracula 2000}}'' Mary is losing the fight to Dracula, after discovering that he's actually [[spoiler:Judas]]. Halfway through the fight Dracula snarls at her as they stare at a cross: "He won't have me," (referring to his immortality) to which she replies: "did you ever ask?" The question clearly hasn't occurred to him before, and it's enough to give her the upper hand.

* TheBible: God really likes these kinds of questions (the most frequent one being "What is it have you done?"). This often overlaps with WhatTheHellHero

** In "Mad Love", Harley Quinn captures Batman, hoping to kill him, thinking that will help improve [[MadLove her relationship]] with the Joker. As Batman [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech chews her out for being so gullible and weak-willed for so long]], Harley tries to rebut by arguing that the Joker is more sympathetic than people think. -->'''Harley:''' He told me things! Secret things he never told anybody! -->'''Batman:''' [[MultipleChoicePast Was it his line about the abusive father? Or the one about the runaway mom? He's gained a lot of sympathy with that one.]]

* In the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' [[StarTrekNovelVerse Novel Verse]], we have "Are you Whole?" for the Andorians. Supposedly asked of the mythical hero Thirishar by all-powerful Uzaveh (AKA Andorian God), the question drives the modern Andorian culture in its entirety. To be truly Whole requires both reassembling in unity the four genders derived from Thirishar (essentially, bonding with three others in an marriage quad) and gaining knowledge of the "missing piece", an elusive aspect of racial knowledge hidden to the Andorian people. See the StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch in particular.

** In "Sin City", Ray, a gay minister, quotes Bible verses to argue, among other things, Sodom was not destroyed for the sin of homosexuality to Malcolm, a fundamentalist who was [[PoliceBrutality beaten up by the police]] and charged with a hate crime for an anti-homosexuality demonstration at a gay pride parade. After a lengthy exposition regarding Chick's views on homosexuality, Bob delivers two questions in rapid succession to Ray.

* After her team's failed murder attempt on Naruto in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5537220/21/The-Darkest-Light The Darkest Light]]'', Gai asks Tenten why she tried to kill him. When she answers that she was jealous of his skill with a sword and hated him with it, Gai's followup question further drives home her HeelRealization.

* In ''StarControl 2'', there is only one question that can get any meaningful response out of the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah. While this won't let you avoid fighting them in the game, the first time it was posed to them in the backstory (by the Mael-Num), it locked them up long enough to allow for an escape.
