* Lord Ferris does a damage-control variation in Ellen Kushner's ''Swordspoint''. After a lengthy TimeSkip, the sequel, ''Privilege of the Sword'', shows that the speech has paid its dividends well.
* BlackJewels: Dorothea gives a damage-control one in the beginning of ''Queen of Darkness''. She finds it amazing that people are so desperate and/or stupid to believe it.

** [[spoiler:[[TopGod Gerun]]]] attempts this when [[spoiler:it]] starts off by sweet-talking Ashe with an offer of new nethicite to destroy the Archadian Empire with, but flips out when she mentions [[spoiler:[[DefectorFromDecadence Venat]]]]. [[spoiler:It]] then goes into a lengthy rant about how [[spoiler:the Occuria]] know what is best for the PunyEarthlings who need to accept the judgment of their betters, which is supposedly for the greater good.

* [[TheHeavy Cinder Fall]] from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' had cemented her status as MagnificentBitch by delivering a speech that managed to be half this half VillainHasAPoint. She pins the blame for [[Penny's death]] on [[BigGood Ozpin]] when ''she'' is the one who masterminded it, while at the same time pointing out legitimately suspicious stuff like Atlas creating combat robot disguised as innocent-looking teenage girl and headmasters of huntsman academies having power comparable of those of army commanders.

** Ondore's speech in the GetOnWithItAlready prologue qualifies in retrospect, but for the fact that [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor the man can't decide what freaking side he's on.]] However, at the moment, he was acting as a mouthpiece for Vayne.

* ''Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay'': Danes' speeches are actually quite inspirational it's just a pity they're coming from a DarkMessiah who's only interested in publicity.

** Of course, given Vayne's AntiVillain status, it arguably qualifies at least partially for RousingSpeech, but it's still mostly this. Even though the guy's got good intentions, it's pretty clear he's a master manipulator who enjoys having power in his own hands - the speech is proof of his intelligence and character.

* The first Terran campaign in ''{{Starcraft}}'' ends with the [[FullCircleRevolution rebel leader-turned-emperor]] Arcturus Mengsk giving a NewEraSpeech to the war-torn remains of the Terran Confederacy. He's upfront about how he intends to force everyone to join his empire and rule as a dictator "for your own protection", but not about the part where he engineered the AlienInvasion that brought down the Confederacy in the first place. Needless to say, when the truth comes out, the public is incensed.

* Halfway through ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' Season 12, [[ManipulativeBastard Felix]] gives Kimball a motivational speech after the Reds and Blues are reported dead, telling her that they should see their deaths as an inspiration to fight harder and to make one last push against the Federal Army. Except, the Reds and Blues are alive and Felix is just tricking Kimball into making a suicidal charge and getting everyone killed.
