* In ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' one of the Imperial generals, Yeager, realizes that even though he's fighting to liberate his own country, his participation in the invasion of Gallia makes him a hypocrite. Inspired by the zeal and dedication the Gallians show in defending their homeland, Yeager decides to abandon his post and leaves the Imperial army.

For the direct opposite, see FaceRealization. See also YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre for where the character fails to see they are nobler than they give themselves credit for.

* ''FanFic/HerInnerDemons'': The Shadowbolts suffered a brutal one when Sci-Twilight explains [[spoiler: her transformation into Midnight Sparkle]] was partly a result of their pressure and ridicule. The shame Lemon Zest and Sunny Flare was so bad, it caused them to StressVomit.

Twilight herself is ashamed for letting her anger turn her [[spoiler: into a monster]], even though the Shadowbolts claim she had every right to be angry.

* Phase of the WhateleyUniverse is a fourteen-year-old who was kicked out of the richest family on the planet, the Goodkinds, when he turned into a mutant: the Goodkinds are notoriously anti-mutant, supporting the [[KnightTemplar Knights of Purity]] and the semi-governmental Mutant Commission Office (MCO). Goodkinds, including the boy Phase used to be, have supported the MCO with billions of dollars over the years. Phase has defended the MCO to his new (mutant) friends at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]], even though there are rumors that the MCO has kidnapped hundreds of young mutants who were never seen again. In "Ayla and the Grinch", Phase has to face the fact that the MCO really ''has'' been kidnapping, and "disappearing", young mutants, and he is partly responsible, since he helped fund the MCO.

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar 2'': More of an UnwittingPawn Realization: After finally being convinced that [[spoiler:Chapter Master Kyras]] is actually serving Chaos as Cyrus has been telling him for the past twenty years, Diomedes has a breakdown, since it means a great many of the things he's done (for several hundred years) as the traitor's unwitting enforcer weren't for the good of the Imperium or the Chapter after all.

* Pretty much the catalyst for ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''. [[BlackKnight Dark Knight]] Cecil begins the game by questioning his loyalty to the king who raised him like a son but recently began a campaign of conquest. He justifies it by trying to convince himself [[IDidWhatIHadToDo he did what he had to do]], but it's clear he doesn't really believe it. He finally draws the line when after he's [[UnwittingPawn unwittingly used]] to [[KickTheDog burn down a village of innocent summoners.]], his friend Kain points out that in order to execute the King's full orders, they will have to kill [[spoiler:Rydia, the only remaining summoner and a 7 year old child, which Cecil adamantly refuses to do (the quote from the DS version is "Any man who'd wish for this is no king of mine!"]] The next part of the game involves him trying to [[TheAtoner atone]] for the awful things he did as a Dark Knight in Baron's service.
