* 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 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.

* In ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', "The Experimental Job", a {{Breaking Speech}} by an interrogator is turned around into a Hannibal Lecture. A career CIA interrogator tries to break Eliot by getting him to talk about how many people Eliot has killed, but the tactic is unsuccessful.
-->What do you want to know? Names? Dates? Locations? You want to know what food was on their breath? Their eyes, you want to know what color their eyes were? Want to know which ones deserved it? Or better yet, which ones didn't? Want to know which ones begged? Know why I know these things? You don't know? Because I can't forget. So there's nothing you can do, no punishment you can hand out, that's worse than what I live with every day. So to answer your question, no. I never counted. I don't need to.
