* There are not any reliable source that Caesar actually said this in real life, but most accounts agrees on that Caesar at first attempted fight off his assassins, but gave up struggling when he spotted Brutus amongst them. According to Roman historian Suetonius, some people said [[Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]] said [[BeamMeUpScotty something similar]], but it was actually in Greek: ''kai su, teknon?'' means "You too, my son?" Another Roman historian, Plutarch, writes that Caesar said nothing at all, but he pulled his toga over his head when he saw Brutus among the conspirators.

* One purpose of ''Art/TheLastSupper'' is to depict the Apostles' collective surprise upon learning one of their own has betrayed them. Besides Jesus, none of them knows who the traitor is, but the shadows don't lie, and neither does Judas's expression.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Jon Snow struggles against the mutineers at Castle Black quite a bit, until a boy he had taken on as his steward and personally mentored steps up, and all he can do is say "Olly?"

** Robb Stark is betrayed by Theon Greyjoy in Season 2 and by Rickard Karstark and later to his death by Roose Bolton and Walder Frey in Season 3.
** Shae is this to Tyrion in Season 4, which is implied to be revenge for sending her away. Notably, she's the only person at his trial who tells an outright lie against him.
** Tywin can hardly fathom that his children would be capable of rebelling against him. His miffed line, "You shot me," carries far more indignation and disbelief than it does fear or pain.

* [[Cao Cao UsefulNotes/ThreeKingdomsShuWeiWu]] had a childhood friend named Zhang Miao. Zhang Miao had a falling out with another of their old friends named Yuan Shao, who at the time was acting as Cao Cao's nominal superior. Yuan Shao asked Cao Cao to execute Zhang Miao for him, but Cao declined to do so. However, when Cao was invading the province of Xu in 194, Zhang Miao (fearing Cao would eventually do as Yuan asked) led a group of conspirators to invite the wandering warlord Lu Bu into Cao's territory and take over.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': [[spoiler:The Night Watch’s Lord Commander Jon Snow]] gets knifed in a mutiny by several of [[spoiler:his fellow Black Brothers, who believe that many of the changes he is making will doom the Watch while Jon institutes these changes in his efforts to save all living beings from their approaching enemy, the Others, which is an [[ZombieApocalypse ancient army-of-the-dead]] that is [[GreaterScopeVillain Westeros' greatest threat]]. Some of his initiatives are radical and include his efforts to save the wildlings -- who Jon explains are also men, women and children and part of the “realms of men” which the Watch is sworn to protect -- but his opponents ''really'' don’t view the wildlings this way and this contrasts with traditional Watch views. Though Jon uses the practical argument that any living person who dies north of the Wall will become part of the [[ZombieApocalypse army-of-the-dead]] coming for them ''all,'' so they must save the wildlings, he often uses the aforementioned humanitarian arguments with his opponents, which fail to convince them. Major changes include Jon building a peace with the wildlings, wherein he shelters them, including the weak, south of the Wall (adding strain on resources, worrying some Watch members and forcing Jon to secure a financial loan in order to provide adequate resources for Watch members, wildlings, and the civilians under his protection at Castle Black); allows some wildlings to take the Black in an effort to increase the Watch's low ranks; lets willing, able-bodied wildlings be trained in order to help defend the Wall against their common enemy, the Others; and later, sends a ranging of men on a dangerous mission to rescue trapped wildling women, children, and men from the ice and the Others -- which a faction of Watch members strongly disagree with. Just as Jon is about to lead this mission himself, he receives a threatening letter from a dangerous man, Ramsay Bolton, who threatens him, the Watch and civilians housed at Castle Black. As a result, he announces he is going to make this man answer for his words, essentially meaning he will meddle in the politics of Westeros, whereafter the mutiny occurs (though, there are hints that the faction of disgruntled Watch brothers were going perform a mutiny against Jon before his announcement). These changes are all Big Deals to anyone who knows the Wall's history.]]

* This was the tragedy of the Marauders in ''Literature/HarryPotter'', as explained in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]''. Peter Pettigrew, one of the four iconic best friends (who formed the Marauders, consisting of James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrow), betrays James Potter to Voldemort. He sends James and his family to their deaths (save for the Potters' infant son, Harry, who famously survives Voldemort's attack) after James' best friend Sirius Black entrusted Peter with the secret of the Potters' hiding place. Sirius went to pieces upon discovering Peter's betrayal. Rather than owning up to his betrayal when Sirius chases him down in a grief-stricken fury, Peter frames Sirius for the Potters' murder and his own killing spree. Sirius was so heartbroken that he broke down into hysterical laughter and was dragged off to Azkaban without struggling.
