--> '''Evil Abed''': Do you know what kind of person becomes a psychologist, Britta? A person that wishes deep down everyone more special than them was sick. Because healthy sounds so much more exciting than boring. Youíre average, Britta Perry. Youíre every kid on the playground that didn't get picked on. Youíre business casual potted plant, a human white sale. Youíre VH1, Robocop 2, and Back to the Future 3. Youíre the center slice of a square cheese pizza. Actually, that sounds delicious. Iím the center slice of a square cheese pizza. Youíre Jim Belushi.

* ''Series/TheCoroner'': Murderer Sidney Sutton attempts this on Jane when she is conducting an investigation of a murder committed in prison. He doesn't entirely succeed, but he gets inside her head enough that she falls for a deliberate piece of misdirection on his part.

* Kirby gets a lot of these in ''ThereWillBeBrawl'', considering he's supposed to be [[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore a parody of Hannibal himself, anyway.]] He even wears the mask, at one point.

-->'''Fajo''': If only you could feel...rage over [[spoiler: Varria's]] death... If only you could feel the need for revenge, then maybe you could fire. But you're...[[RidiculouslyHumanRobots just an android]]. You can't feel ''anything'', can you? It's just another interesting, intellectual puzzle for you - another of life's curiosities.

* This was used to lethal effect in a back issue of ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'', as a telepath and sadist had trapped Pete Wisdom in a room flooded with an exotic bioweapon which damaged the body of an agitated person. Said telepathic sadist was probing around for things to get Pete's goat and let his own memories carve him up like a side of beef. It didn't work, as Pete had made peace with his demons some time before. Instead, the poor maniac eventually hit Pete's deliberately assembled bloc-o'-atrocity, filled with unpleasantries from his horrific earlier career so bad it started damaging the telepath. When that got going, Pete hit him with a bit of the ol' ''Hannibal Lecture'' to the effect of there being a big difference between reading minds and dealing with what you find in them.

** Frank's S.A.S. pal Yorkie is the master of these. He'd probably have the TropeNamer weeping for forgiveness after a few minutes with him. In a DoubleSubversion, Barracuda laughs off one of these after killing Yorkie, but true to form his dying speech echoes in his head at a most inopportune moment and gets under his skin ó allowing the Brit to punk him from the grave. (It's possible that Yorkie did it in the hopes that this would actually happen.)
--> '''Yorkie''': He's going to kill you. Not over me. You're going up against him, so he'll kill you. Because you're a joke, in spite of it all... and he's the most dangerous man who ever walked this Earth.

** Frank doesn't do this often, being TheStoic, but he completely destroys the last shreds of dignity [[SmugSnake Nicky [[DirtyCoward Cavella]] has with one.

* ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'' is kind of in love with this trope.

--> '''Cavella''': Either I walk outta here or I blow the little fuck all over you. It's your call.
--> '''Frank''': You won't shoot him. You're a coward. ...Psycho rep only takes you so far. After that, you've nothing. ''[[PapaWolf Hurt the boy and you die bad]]''. You know that. But there's a part of you that still thinks that if you let him go, you've got a chance. And that part of you just won't shut up.
