* OrsonScottCard likes to do this in his books. A scene from one of the Shadow books involves Ender's mom and Graff talking about whether it's intentions or actions that determine one's supernatural fate, for example.

** * ''Anime/CodeGeass'' does something similar in the epic battle in the finale.finale - somewhat justified in that they're ''freaked out'' by the way things have gone recently - [[spoiler: the first nuclear weapon detonates over a major city where most of them have lived, a major coup happens, most of them find out about Geass for the first time around then, and all of their allegiances get shaken up to the point where more than half of everyone's allies were once enemies, and vice-versa...]]
