* A meta example: during production of the 1976 version of ''Film/{{Carrie|1976}}'', Nancy Allen and JohnTravolta didn't realize just ''how villainous'' [[AlphaBitch Chris]] and [[{{Delinquents}} Billy]] really were until they actually saw the film. They thought they were the comic relief while filming.

** A milder example occurs in "[[Recap/DoctorWho2015CSTheHusbandsOfRiverSong The Husbands of River Song]]"; when Fleming declares that the Doctor loves River and would always come to her aid, River bitterly declares to Fleming that the Doctor never loved her and that he would not be rushing to her rescue out of pure sentiment (not realizing that that the man who was standing beside her for the whole episode ''was'' the Doctor). The Doctor never says anything, but the expression on the Doctor's face speaks volumes as he realizes how he has hurt River by his callousness. The episode ends with the Doctor and River [[EarnYourHappyEnding finally having their long-overdue last night together at the Singing Towers of Darillium.]] Of course the nights on Darillium are 24 years long...

* The BonusBoss Algalon in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has a significant though somber FreakOut when players defeat him. He considers the countless worlds he's [[ApocalypseHow Reoriginated]] and wonders if the million million lives he's destroyed all had free will and loved life as much as the players. As a result, despite his orders dictating Azeroth be Reorginated, he gives you the "all is well" code to send to the Titans.

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Suzaku had one in R2, right as he was about to use Refrain on Kallen to get her to admit who Zero was. In his mind, this makes him just like the Geass-using Lelouch. [[{{Hypocrite}} Never mind that he'd sworn fealty to a man who he knows to also use Geass and is much worse about it than Lelouch]]. He has an even bigger one when he realizes the futility of trying to value means above results after he accidentally [[spoiler:nukes the Tokyo settlement]].
** Lelouch has one in the first season after he [[ShootTheDog Shoots The Dog]] completely by accident [[spoiler:and kills his sister Euphemia]]. Although upset over his actions, Lelouch realizes he's gone too far to turn back, which could be seen as IgnoredEpiphany...[[spoiler:but he arranges his master plan around making his crimes public, and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath being executed]] at the hands of Zero (a disguised Suzaku), because in his mind, that is exactly what he deserves. At the same time, this final act serves as Suzaku's atonement for ''his'' realization—he must give up his identity and forever assume the mantle of Zero.]]

* In ''[[Anime/{{K}} K: Return of Kings]]'', [[spoiler: Nagare, the Green King]] has one in the end when [[spoiler: Shiro and Neko tell him that they're willing to sacrifice the Slates because they don't need power, just warm food and friends to share it with around a small table. Which is what [[{{Foil}} his Clan had as well]], only they were too focused on their revolution plot to appreciate it before it was too late (or at least Nagare was). This is emphasized when Shiro and Neko run past the Green Clan's room on their way to this showdown, and Shiro [[NotSoDifferent gives it a sad look]].]]
