* ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'' has a villain-to-villain example where the Count von Magpyr, about to be defeated, denounces the [[TorchesAndPitchforks mob who's cornered him]] for preferring [[ClassicalMovieVampire The Old Count]] to him since the Old Count was a monster who would hunt and kill people. The villagers respond that the Old Count ''knew'' he was a monster and never expected any favours for it; he was a FairPlayVillain because it suited him to give his victims a fighting chance, while the new count somehow thinks forcing villagers into 'blood quotas' to minimize deaths makes him less evil.

* ''Theatre/NoExit'': While Garcin and Estelle insist they were sent to Hell by some mistake and are good people, Inez openly admits that she was an awful person in life and had this coming. She goads the others until they admit it, too.

* Verse, one of your companions in ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'', is a self-admitted murderer and cut-throat who likes killing things. One of the quicker ways to get on her nerves is to insist that killing things is justified by things like 'higher ideals' or 'glory'; as far as she is concerned, just admitting you like killing is much more honest. This is one of the reasons she can't stand [[JustFollowingOrders Barik]], and gets along well with [[SocialDarwinist Kills-in-Shadow]].

* In ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'', sinners reincarnate as monsters in Hell depending on the gravity of their crimes, and ghouls (people who committed great atrocities in life in the name of the greater good) are viewed as some of the lowest by the vampires, who used to be the worse of the worst and are completely unrepentant about their crimes.

* One episode of ''Series/BlackMirror'' has an animation team put a cartoon walrus in the running for Minister. He racks up votes by the sheer ridiculousness of the concept and putting out statements saying how he's honest about not standing for anything, but it's subverted when his increasingly pissed voice actor points out that it doesn't change the fact that ''he still doesn't stand for anything'' and it makes a mockery of the whole voting process.

* In ''Film/QuizShow,'' the subcommittee questions Stempel, and one points out that, by his own admission, he "prostituted your intellectual ability for money." Stempel replies that, unlike Van Doren (the guy he had to take a dive for), he's moral enough to admit it. Since the subcommittee suspects that he's lying because of an irrational hatred of Van Doren (which, to be fair, he totally has), this doesn't really make him look good.

* In ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone'', Philip Lombard is the only guest who freely admits that he's guilty of the murder [[PoeticSerialKiller U. N. Owen]] accused him of without trying to hide it and in the 2015 BBC miniseries adaptation, he points out that "either I'm embellishing a story for shocking effect, or I'm the only one telling the truth in a room full of liars!"

* In ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone'', Philip Lombard is the only guest who freely admits that he's guilty of the murder [[PoeticSerialKiller U. N. Owen]] accused him of without trying to hide it and it. This is lampshaded in the 2015 BBC miniseries adaptation, adaptation; when everyone gets on their high-horse and begins to condemn him (albeit with reason, since his crime was pretty horrible), he points out that "either he's not the only one in the room facing an accusation of something terrible, but ''is'' the only one who's admitting to it:
--> '''Lombard:''' So either
I'm embellishing a story for shocking effect, or I'm the only one telling the truth in a room full of liars!"liars.
