** Much earlier, in Season 5, Faith expects Willow to try to appeal to her better nature and get her to pull a HeelFaceTurn, clearly intending to pull a RedemptionRejection. She's taken aback when Willow instead gives her a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, telling her point-blank that it's too late for her and she's now nothing but "a big, selfish, worthless waste."

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'', there is a scene in which Ike is given a choice to either play RousingSpeech straight or defy it (it doesn't affect the game at all outside the scene). If you choose to defy it, Mist is annoyed by how boring it is, but Ike says he's perfectly happy being boring.

A Defied Trope happens when a character knows, InUniverse, that a trope is about to happen, either due to being GenreSavvy or because someone is trying to {{invoke|dTrope}} it, and then actively attempts to {{avert|edTrope}} it, {{subvert|edTrope}} it, or {{invert|edTrope}} it. They might succeed or they might fail. The point is that the character is ''attempting'' to avoid a straight run of the trope, in-universe
