* [[TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Ulfric Stormcloak]] has one while in Sovngarde, the Nord equivalent of Valhalla. Despite his best intentions, the rebellion he lead gifted Alduin the World Eater with a surfeit of souls to devour and played right into the hands of his hated enemies the Thalmor. They had used him as an unwitting agent to weaken the Empire through civil war, distracting them from the bigger threat of the Thalmor themselves.
* [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI Riku]] after destroying his world, serving Maleficent, getting Dark powers, and controlling Heartless gets one [[spoiler: around the time that Ansem possess him]] The rest of the series is him becoming TheAtoner.

* In ''Videogame/Persona5'', those who have their hearts stolen by the Phantom Thieves will eventually be overcome by immense guilt and feel an intense desire to atone for their crimes. For the major targets (all of whom are people of high status in society), this usually results in them publicly confessing their crimes and begging the people for forgiveness.

*** Gundam Seed sees Flay Allster slowly have one over the tail end of the series. While the groundwork was laid when she began to genuinely love Kira even as she seduced and manipulated him, it finally sticks for good when she spends time as a ZAFT captive and observes Coordinators, seeing them as people with hopes and dreams. Any remaining doubts are expunged when she witnesses Muruta Azrael's cruelty and psychopathy firsthand

* GunsOfTheSouth has Nate Cauldell pull a heel realization when after teaching a black man and realizing that the man is both extremely smart and wants to better himself he realizes that his landlady, who's both illiterate and dumb as a post could buy the man in a heartbeat. As Nate himself says "Damned if there's any justice in that." The south as a whole has one when they find books showing how the civil war really went and learn that not only were blacks just as capable as whites but that they'd be seen as the villains in the future.



*** He gets a bigger one in "Twilight's Kingdom Part 2" after his FaceHeelTurn to ally with Lord Tirek only lead to [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves Tirek draining him of his magic and getting him captured as well]]. He was already having second thoughts, but its this backstab that really drives it home.

He was already having second thoughts, but its this backstab that really drives it home. He had friendship....and he threw it away for nothing. Afterwards he finally grows up and while still a bit of a troll is far more compassionate.

** In the [[spoiler:PsychologicalHorror masquerading as a]] DatingSim ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'', in the final scene with Monika, [[spoiler:you learn that she's [[MediumAwareness self aware]] and can [[RealityWarper edit the game's code]], and has deleted every other part of the game, [[MurderTheHypotenuse other characters included]]. The player's response is to delete ''her'' character file, and for a moment it looks like she's going to go full screaming {{Yandere}} before it slowly sinks in that [[KarmicDeath this is exactly what she did to the others]] and that, even if they were replaceable data and scripts, they were still her friends. She laments how monstrous she had become and restores the characters and the game world before accepting her fate.]]

** Happens again with Heidi in the episode "Splatty Tomato" after Kyle declares he can never love her current self in season 21's finale. Heidi then begins to look back on how she went from a NiceGirl a female Cartman, realizing that her relationship with Cartman has slowly destroyed her mentally and physically. Heidi has enough and breaks up with Cartman for good, no longer wishing to be awful and pave a more positive future for herself.

* White Knight Leo from ''[[Lunar2EternalBlueComplete Lunar 2: Eternal Blue]]'' is a KnightTemplar who's really a KnightInShiningArmor at heart...which is why he [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor flip-flops between Heel and Face]]. By the time he's mostly sided with Hiro, he's had to accept that [[spoiler: the Althena he served was a fake goddess, put into position by the real dark god, Zophar. Oh, and that he's slaughtered an untold number of other innocent people by unquestioningly following the orders of his false goddess]]. It's a tough pill to swallow.
