* Queen Elsa does this trope in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' when her sister, Princess Anna, becomes an ice statue because of Elsa's curse. Elsa caresses Princess Anna's frozen face and gives her a hug, knowing that Anna will never come back and that Elsa really is [[IAmAMonster "The monster that she fears she is."]] Guess who ends up thawing and gives Elsa a big hug?

* In ''TheZombieHunters'', [[OurZombiesAreDifferent "Mercy" zombies]] approach sick, wounded or dying humans, and [[SuperPersistentPredator follow them]], [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou protecting them]] from other zombies, until they can no longer go on. Mercies deliver a single [[MercyKill bite to a vital artery]], then [[PietaPlagiarism hold the dying victim]], while gently stroking their hair and cooing softly. They'll even remain with their victims for hours [[ViralTransformation after they turn]]. It is incredibly disturbing, but, compared to the horrible deaths [[SuperPoweredMooks other breeds]] inflict, also oddly sweet. [[AllThereInTheManual Website materials]] state that some traumatized [[ActionSurvivor survivors]] seek them out as [[ICannotSelfTerminate a form of suicide]], hence the name.

** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' has a little more fun with the trope. One of Ezio's victims sarcastically asks if he was expecting a confession. Ezio averts the trope when he stabs another victim in a manner that could not possibly be described as calm. And a third victim uses the moment to stab Ezio in the side. Generally, however, the trope is still played straight.
