* This is the subject of "Franklin's Homemade Cookies" on ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'' - Franklin is unflinchingly critically honest of Bear's craft project that he gives to him and then has to deal with the same thing when it turns out his cookies have way too much ginger in them.

* Inevitable in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' novels. The clergy don't mince words. The Duke is polite only ''tactically.'' And on rare occasions. The [[DrJerk GP]] is noted for such remarks as, "Of course you're unwell, you're fat! Digging your grave with a fork and your teeth!" Lady Crispin is fraffly plain-spoken. It would be hard to find anyone who wasn't weapons-grade blunt. ''Gossip'' is carefully kept from the ears of those who'd be hurt by it, but if something ''is'' said, it's not sugar-coated. (TruthInTelevision insofar as country folk tend to bluntness and the working and upper classes in the UK consider indirection and politesse a middle-class thing.)

* Saruhiko Fushimi in ''Anime/{{K}}'', with a nice side of ServileSnarker, mostly to his King. It seems Munakata likes it, though, because he keeps Fushimi around as his third in command. There are only two situations where he's not brutally honest: [[spoiler: when he's on an undercover mission]], and to himself (that he actually does care for his friends).

* The season 4 premiere of ''Series/TheWire'' sees Tommy Carcetti doing a mockery of what an honest campaign donation call would sound like:
-->'''Tommy Carcetti:''' Hey there, Jim. Tom Carcetti here, remember me? We met at your sister's house you know, the one that's married to that Republican cunt. I know you don't remember me. I know you don't have any use for fucking politicians, and frankly, I don't give a flying fuck about what you think or what your concerns are. But I do care about what your cute little blonde wife thinks about so many things. But, Jim, the reason I'm calling is because I want you to write me out a check for $4,000, the maximum allowed by law. Because we don't trust you to actually mail that check, we're gonna send over a couple of furloughed DPW workers to beat the check out of you.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'': During a battle in the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc, Supergirl tells a girl run and hide. Since the girl hesitates because she refuses to abandon her mother's body, a Supergirl's teammate points out that her mother is dead.
-->'''Supergirl:''' You. Find someplace to hide.\\
'''Girl:''' But my mom --\\
'''Skallox:''' Your mother is dead! Now run for your life.\\
'''Supergirl:''' You couldn't put that more gently?\\
'''Skallox:''' Seriously, new girl? Gently?

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Asuka says Keiko that she isn't qualified to pilot an Eva and she should quit because she'll get herself or her teammates killed otherwise. Asuka was harsh but she was completely right.

** One episode featured a PatientOfTheWeek who had lost the ability to censor himself and always responded with brutal honesty. It served as a deconstruction of the concept, as it tore his family apart and tormented him- he genuinely, sincerely loved his wife and kids, but telling them his completely unvarnished opinions time and time again was a nightmare.
