* The cop protagonist gives one for society at the end of ''The Stone Killer'' (1973), about how the police are fighting an unstoppable tide of crime and violence. It doesn't quite work as the cop is played by Creator/CharlesBronson, and even the unstoppable tides of history would find it difficult to erode his stoic features.

A Despair Speech would be done by a character to show that they have crossed the DespairEventHorizon. The character is winding up his/her own lack of chances, desperation and, sometimes, remorse for something he/she could have done or said before. If said character is a criminal, his/her confession can become a Despair Speech. Be careful when writing this: done too much or badly, and it becomes {{Wangst}}.

* Parodied in the "Rally the Troops" ''Videogame/Destiny2'', contrasted by a true RousingSpeech. (He does mention to turn it into a rousing speech by mentioning loot.)
"Uh, look, you're a bunch of dirty misfits, so you'll have to do!"\\
"So, everything is gone. Your stuff. My stuff. Most importantly, '''''my stuff'''''!"\\
"... If I don't see you out there, I'll kill you myself!"\\
"Worst cast scenario: we die. Maybe we won't!"\\

* John Carter's last words at the very end in ''[[Literature/JohnCarterOfMars Gods of Mars]]'' qualified as this, after seeing his wife being locked up inside a inescapable temple with a angry enemy ready to lunge at her with a knife in hand.
-->''"Go," I urged them. "Let me die here beside my Princess--there is no hope or happiness elsewhere for me. When they carry her dear body from that terrible place a year hence [[TogetherInDeath let them find the body of her lord awaiting her]]."''

-->'''Andrew Knightley''': You need help, Gary.
-->'''Gary King''': [[spoiler: I ''got'' help. You know what "help" was? Help was a lot of people sitting in a circle talking about how ''fuckin' awful'' things had got. That is not my idea of a good time]].
-->'''Andrew Knightly''': And this is?!
-->'''Gary King''': They told me when to go to bed! ME!
-->'''Andrew Knightly''': [[spoiler: Gary, mate... How can you tell when you're drunk if you're never sober?]]
-->'''Gary King''': [Angry and upset] [[spiler: I don't ''want'' to be sober! It never got better than that night! That was supposed to be the beginning of my life! All that promise and fucking optimism... That feeling like we could take on the whole universe! It was a big lie. Nothing happened]].
