* ''FanFic/RWBYReckoning'' has [[FaceFramedInShadow a]] [[InTheHood mysterious]] [[BlackCloak enemy]] give a simple, yet scathing one to Darrel during the events of "[[Recap/RWBYV2E11NoBrakes No Brakes]]". -->What you've done… is nothing. Your accomplishments are minimal, your skills are lacking. You blunder along, believing that you further your wretched cause… but you're just a boy swinging tiny knives taped to your wrists. You think yourself a warrior… You call yourself a hero… You dub yourself a champion… You are nothing. Nothing, but a child. Nothing, but a coward. Nothing, but a waste. Nothing, but… -->''[The unknown foe [[WreckedWeapon crushes]] Darrel's [[BladeBelowTheShoulder weapon]] with his bare hand.]. -->''...a failure.''

* Every single boss in ''AmericanMcGeesAlice''. The tougher the boss, the more MindScrew they pour on in the BossBanter. Justified in that every boss represents a self-destructive component of her own psyche (the Jabberwock in particular is Alice's guilt over [[spoiler:surviving the fire that killed her family]]).

** MargaretCho describes the process on her album ''Assassin'': --> (sassy voice) When you read somebody, what you are doing is you slowly chip away at they self esteem, but you do so in such a subtle manner they have no idea what is happening to them; they are simply overwhelmed by a sense of dread.

** She also received one of these from [[BigBad Jail Scaglietti]] of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', who mentioned how [[ActionMom her adopting children]] that became ChildSoldiers that love her made her no different from [[MadScientist Jail himself]] or from her EvilMatriarch of a mother. Thankfully, [[YouAreNotAlone her children snapped her out of it by declaring how they're the ones who chose their path and that all Fate did was raise them to be strong-willed enough to do so]]. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Fate proceeds to kick ass all over Jail and his Numbers]]. [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic To the tune of Nana Mizuki's "Pray," no less]].

* In the "Elseworlds" (out-of-continuity) comic from DC, ''SupermanRedSon'', where Superman's pod landed in the Soviet Union instead of the United States, Lex Luthor does this to Superman [[MagnificentBastard with one sentence, written down, and tucked into Lois Luthor (nee Lane)'s coat pocket]]. Stalingrad, which was shrunk and put in a "bottle" instead of Kandor, haunts Superman. Luthor, the president of the US, [[spoiler:takes advantage of this fact by questioning Superman's "perfect" totalitarian rule of most of Earth with the single written sentence, "Why don't you just put the whole world in a bottle, Superman?" He has Lois put the note in her pocket and, when his [[ThePlan plan finally spurs Superman to come to the White House personally]], she is to ask Superman to use his X-ray vision to read the note.]] Superman very nearly breaks down in despair.

* The symbiote in ''TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' combines this with JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind to get Peter Parker to bond with it permenantly, mainly by pointing out that he's living in a CrapsackWorld and has gotten nothing in return for his heroics. Thankfully his memory of his uncle and friends snaps him out of it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'': An interesting variation of this happens in the Season Five finale; [[spoiler: after The Monarch makes half-hearted attempts to physically torture Dr. Venture, he eventually breaks down and openly admits how pathetic he and Dr. Venture had become, eventually leading Dr. Venture to simply walk away despondently. [[MagnificentBastard This was apparently all part of The Monarch's plan to break Dr. Venture's spirit.]]]]
