** Despite the fact that Kurama wanted to kill him most of his life, killed a lot of people being on the loose and bearing directly responsible for the death of his parents, Naruto forgives him. Of course during the attack on Konoha he was under Tobi's control for a while,but even after it wore off he still continued to attack Konoha. Naruto doesn't seem to care and tells the Kurama his friend.

* Played with in ''Fanfic/ItsNotTheRaptorDNA''; Owen, Claire, and a few others are willing to forgive Elise, but those who were more directly affected by her rampage treat her like a monster. The most prominently showcased are Debra, the petting zoo director who raised the ''Apatosaurus'' herd that Elise butchered, and Commander Blake, who was best friends with many of the ACU troopers Elise killed. It takes dozens of chapters (and a few apologies from both sides) before bridges begin to mend [[spoiler: [[HeelFaceDoorslam and Blake doesn't live long enough to be truly forgiving]].]]

* PlayedWith in ''WesternAnimation/{{Coco}}''. [[spoiler: [[RealityEnsues Imelda doesn't forgive Héctor right away for abandoning her]], even after learning that he tried to return but was murdered by Ernesto before he could. However, towards the end of the film, they slowly begin to reconcile, and by the time of the epilogue, they're finally back together for real. Also, in the living world after the one year TimeSkip, the Riveras forgave Héctor and accepted music once again. Like their deceased family members, it can be assumed that they didn't forgive Héctor overnight, but it took some time and effort from Miguel and Coco, as well as finding Héctor's letters that reveal the truth, to convince them to do so.]]

** Played remarkably straight in "DNA Mad Scientist". D'Argo, Zhaan, and Rygel cut off Pilot's arm (against his protests) in order to get maps that will help them return to their home planets. When John visits Pilot afterwards, Pilot excuses their actions because it is his duty serve those aboard Moya, no matter what. Though Pilot forgives the others quickly, John and Aeryn remain pretty pissed off.

** On the villainous side of the fence, consider Drakken and Shego's PostscriptSeason appearances up through "Mad Dogs And Aliens". On two different occasions, Shego was busted out of prison by other villains, and gave no thought to Drakken (except to yell "Later, loser!" on her way out). In [=MDaA=], Drakken orders Warmonga to throw Shego out, then holds her captive intending to make her watch Warmonga score the victory over Kimmie that she never could (and [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou claims as her prerogative]]). Really, it's amazing that they were on speaking terms, much less working together, in later episodes.

* At the end of the UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, a 4-year conflict that resulted in over 600,000 deaths, the defeated Southern states were brought back into the Union without any sanctions or harsh measures. While some parts of the South would be occupied by federal troops for years, no members of the confederate military or government were ever put on trial for treason[[note]]though some of them were exiled and died without a country; all had their citizenship posthumously restored[[/note]]. Likewise, the vast majority of Confederate veterans returned home to become peaceful productive citizens of the United States, despite spending the last four years viewing the US as a mortal enemy. This was in keeping with the wishes of President Abraham Lincoln, who in his 1865 inauguration speech stated "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

* The ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny'' cartoon "Barbary Coast Bunny" has Bugs as a rube infiltrating Nasty Canasta's gambling parlor to get back the gold Canasta stole. After one too many visual puns, Canasta lights into Bugs, who starts walking off sullenly with his winnings. Canasta tries to kiss up to him:

* In ''VideoGame/FableI'', a PlayerCharacter who's at least moderately high on the KarmaMeter gains the ability to ''apologize'' when caught committing a non-violent crime, which earns on-the-spot forgiveness. The [[KleptomaniacHero five-finger discount]] succeeds where the [[NoHeroDiscount hero discount]] fails in the land of Albion, it would seem.

* When John Hinkley Jr. pleaded insanity for attempting to assassinate UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, a nationwide debate over the insanity plea started; oddly enough, Reagan himself was the one who recommended such a plea of clemency.

* At the end of World War II, UsefulNotes/CharlesDeGaulle made a point of arranging reconciliation between France and Germany as fast as possible, and ''not'' blame Germany for the atrocities committed by the [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Nazis]] in France. Hitler had been able to seize power partially thanks to Germany's hatred of France after the humiliation from World War I, and he wanted to break the cycle of hatred between the two countries. Thanks to him, the two now get along pretty well. He also granted an amnesty to Marshal Pétain, leader of the French Government of Vichy (who had collaborated with Nazi Germany), arguing Pétain's actions could be explained by his old age.
