* In the backstory of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11175004/8/Star-Wars-Episode-I-The-Familiar-of-Zero Star Wars Episode I: The Familiar of Zero]]'', Guiche is part of a prank on Louise (as revenge for the damage her explosions cause) that starts with him asking her on a date. Throughout their dinner, he realizes what a wonderful (if magically inept) person Louise is and when she's knocked out by her drugged meal and several students write crude things all over her, Guiche breaks down crying over how he strung her along. Her sheer joy that a guy like him noticed her just makes it worse for him. Guiche later admits to another student that afterwards, he didn't beg forgiveness because he couldn't stand the idea of Louise feeling anything for him besides hatred and revulsion. It's why he doesn't begrudge Louise's familiar for leaving him in constant agony from her Force Lightning, as it's no less than he deserved.

So much so that, when Midnight goes on a reality-breaking spree, the girls quickly aid the others in saving those dangling in the holes from falling in.]] Once everything is set back to normal, the girls are a lot more apologetic and friendlier.

Then towards the end of the episode, Stan says he's starting to sound like Cartman and Kyle replies "No I'm not goddammit!" [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone then cups his mouth in shock.]]

** Subverted with "Brian The Closer". Brian seems to have realized that he was in the wrong for selling Quagmire the rundown condo, and that he's a bad person in general, but he was only stalling for the condo's refund deadline.

* In ''AsurasWrath'', Yasha spent the last 12,000 years going along with the plans of the same people who killed his sister and his brother-in-law, enslaved his niece, and regularly slaughter people for their souls. All for the sake of the "cause" -- preventing the complete destruction of humanity at the hands of the Gohma. He justified it by believing with all his might that it truly was the only way to save humanity in the long run. Confronting Asura again and seeing how much power he's attained ''without'' mass human sacrifice helps Yasha realize that Deus' plan ''isn't'' the only way to save the world. When Asura calls Yasha and the other Deities fools for killing ''seven trillion people'' as part of their plan to "save" the world, Yasha agrees.
