After hearing that, Slader stops fighting and leaves to meet the king, still in deep shock.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Butterballs", Kyle accuses Stan of exploiting Butters in his anti-bullying video in order to make money. Stan argues that his video could change the way people think about bullying and that it needs to be seen by everyone; Kyle retorts, "If it needs to be seen by everybody, then why don't you put it out on the internet for free?" After a long silence, Stan's only answer is "What was the question again?"

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', there is a practice in Queensland which Princess Ren hates - the small children of treasonous families are killed along with them. Her harsher and more pragmatic sister Halley reminds her that no relatives will take a traitor child, and if ''they'' do, well...

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' [[spoiler: [[MemeticBadass Jaime Lannister]]]] says he wants to die after losing his sword hand, and is asked "Are you so craven?". While he has been called dishonourable or treacherous countless times in the past, [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne nobody has ever accused him of cowardice,]] and so the APQ shocks him out of downwards spiral, and restores his determination to survive and get revenge.

* ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'': In chapter 15, a group of men ready to lynch Tom is stopped dead by Scout when she asks one of them how his entailment (ie: an inheritance problem) is coming along. In this case, it's not specifically the question that's armor-piercing so much is that it's coming from the innocent young daughter of Tom's defense lawyer - it breaks the men out of their mob mentality and they quickly disperse in embarrassment, much to the confusion of Scout, who was only trying to make small talk.
* In the StarCraft novel, ''Liberty's Crusade'', a reporter confronts Colonel Duke with a FridgeLogic question that probably works on many players - if the Protoss just appeared and started attacking with no warning or communication, ''how do we know their name?''
--> "Where did we get the name 'Protoss' Colonel? Is that ours, or theirs? And if it's their name for themselves, how come we know it?"

* It's not actually a question, but it does fit. In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Padme's BodyGuardCrush, Captain Typho, searching for her murderer then finding him and getting utterly curbstomped, manages to stop Darth Vader cold by telling him "I know you killed Padme." He still gets killed after the pause, but he's comforted by the knowledge that he hurt the Dark Lord. Though, not knowing the actual events, he never knows why - his investigation basically went: Padme was killed with the Force, Skywalker was supposed to be bodyguarding her, Skywalker was killed shortly before her, Vader appeared after that, therefore Vader killed them both.

* In the fifth Literature/{{Temeraire}} book, ''Victory of Eagles'', Napoleon has invaded Britain. [[ToBeLawfulOrGood Laurence]], who technically committed treason at the end of the last book by saving the dragons of Europe from biological genocide, is given a stay of execution because the Admiralty needs someone to ferret out pockets of French troops - [[WarIsHell and he has orders to take no prisoners]]. It's dirty, dishonorable, and depressing, but he obeys until [[TheUnfettered Tharkay]] arrives, sees his plans for the next attack, and plainly asks, "''What are you doing?''" It prompts a small breakdown from Laurence, and a frank assessment of what he is prepared to take responsibility for.
* The sequel to ''Literature/ThoseThatWake'' has this near the end, which opens Laura upt tp talking about her problems and memory loss.
