* While we never see [[{{AFGNCAAP}} Cipher's]] reaction to [[spoiler:his trusted {{wingman}} Pixy]]'s betrayal in ''AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar'', many players were emotionally shaken by it.

Particularly brutal if the victim is betrayed by the ones who supposedly rescued him from a FriendlessBackground, or if they [[IJustWantToHaveFriends desperately seek friendship above all else]]. A SadisticChoice, BreakHisHeartToSaveHim or BecauseYouCanCope excuse may be made if the victim's "betrayer" felt as though they had no choice but to abandon them. If the characters in question were friends with each other prior to the betrayal, it probably triggers FaceHeelTurn, EvilFormerFriend and WeUsedToBeFriends. Compare and contrast PlotMandatedFriendshipFailure, where the friend merely leaves rather than outright betrays him.

BetrayalByOffspring is similar except that the betrayal is done by a character's son or daughter.

** Missing the bigger picture, Tywin can hardly fathom that his children would be capable of rebelling against him. His miffed line, "You shot me," ("why, this is violence") carries far more indignation and disbelief than it does fear or pain, like that of which JuliusCaesar expressed during his own assassination.

* Inverted on ''XenaWarriorPrincess'' with Caesar's assassination. In Shakespeare's ''Julius Caesar'', Caesar wilts upon seeing his close friend Brutus among his killers. But in ''Xena'', Caesar had been cast as a much younger man(instead of middle-aged like the real Caesar was), and his response to realizing what was about to happen was an angry "And '''you''', Brutus!"
