* [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1249882 "Up And Apart,"]] a PatchworkFic written for the {{Tron}} universe has Jet Bradley hanging a lampshade on this trope.
-->He has the mental image of his father staring at him over his spectacles, and the words ''“Jethro Eugene Bradley, I'm very disappointed...”'' When it comes to his dad, “disappointed” covers a lot of things other people use four-letter bombs to express.

* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'': If you lower your affinity with character companions, they'll start getting irritated with you. Examples include Hancock (who growls whether he's mad at you or himself...and settles for you) and Codsworth (who wonders if he's disappointed in you or himself for [[BrokenPedestal believing in you]].
** Subverted with Nick Valentine if your affinity drops very low, and he'll have this to say.

One character fails at something. Instead of being angry, another character is morose. They don't yell at the first character or ask them "WhatWereYouThinking" or anything dramatic like that. Instead, they calmly, sadly and often regretfully tell the other person that they've let them down. Someway, somehow, they've set the second characters hopes for them high and then failed to deliver. May be worded as "I'm disappointed in you," or "You disappoint me," or at a stretch "I expected better/more." However it's worded, the issue isn't one of outrage or indignation -- merely that the speaker has been let down by the other and they feel like a fool for believing there would be any other outcome.

* In ''[[{{Manga/KingdomHeartsII}} Kingdom Hearts II]]'', Sora scolds his friends for allowing themselves into being captured by a bunch of weak Heartless when the trio are captured and zapped into a computer world called Space Paranoids. This is different from the game, where he simply tells them to "show 'em who's boss".
-->'''[[{{GoodIsNotNice}} Sora]]:''' Come on, guys! You let the Heartless get you?

* One ChooseYourOwnAdventure {{Narnia}} book uses this. Aslan sends the PlayerCharacter to investigate an island where ''some'' of the water can turn everything it touches to gold, which is otherwise indistingishable from all the other water there. If the hero decides to join a gang exploiting the water to get rich quick, Aslan appears, tells them how disappointed he is, and sends them back home, along with their ill-gotten wealth. The hero's deeply upset, realizing too late the folly of their greed, and it's implied they'll never get a chance to atone or return to Narnia.

* In ''Series/TheCrown2016'', the recently-crowned Elizabeth II learns that Winston Churchill has kept secret the fact he's had two strokes. On the advice of her private professor, she takes this tone with him whilst reminding him that the monarch must be able to ''trust'' Parliament for constitutional law to function properly. Any Englishman of a certain age and social class, it seems, is vulnerable to a stern telling-off from Nanny.
