There's generally little, if any change in the character. The moment itself is fleeting, and whether it be their natural temperament reasserting itself, or their FatalFlaw preventing them from changing, outside events do something that force them out of this frame of mind and right back into their usual one, or simply the feeling that [[IHaveComeTooFar they've spent this long and put this much effort into whatever it is they're doing, and now they have to go through with it]]. A common variant is a character starting to so say "MyGodWhatHaveIDone'', stopping halfway through, then [[NeverMyFault blaming the whole thing on some other person or outside force]].

* A sad case in ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'''s "Grounded". Orel undergoes a near death experience to talk to God, and the resulting Dream Sequence grants him a profound epiphany about his faith. Then his father spanks him until he forgets it because it didn't fall in line with official church dogma.

Maybe we shouldn't be browsing [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife TV Tropes]] so much... On the other hand, there's information to be catalogued!

* ''Theatre/DoctorFaustus'' considers many times throughout the play whether he should rescind on his DealWithTheDevil. He always convinces himself that he's too far gone to repent, so there is no point.

* ''Theatre/DoctorFaustus'' considers many times throughout the play whether he should rescind on his DealWithTheDevil. He always convinces himself that he's too far gone to repent, so there is no point. He is eventually more repentant when on the brink of death, but this is too late for Marlowe's God. Although Faustus was aware of religion, he chose to defy it.



* Early in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, during the invasion of the Soviet Union, the Nazis carried out conventional acts of genocide via having death squads (''Einsatzgruppen'') massacre whole villages of Jews and similar undesirables. Problems started cropping up when the soldiers participating in the massacres started [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone collapsing in horror]] at repeated murder, and even Heinrich Himmler vomited at the site of one such atrocity. Instead of realizing they were committing acts of pure evil, however, the Nazis [[DramaticallyMissingThePoint simply decided they needed a more detached and mechanical means of mass murder]], and thus the original FinalSolution was born.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' Lumpy-Space Princess erroneously becomes convinced that her new boyfriend Johnny no longer has affection for her and is instead interested in Princess Bubblegum despite being informed that the meeting was strictly business. She speaks as if she will accept his "betrayal" and talks about how letting someone you love go into the arms of another takes a big person. She then says "I don't know if I can be that big." before throwing a bottle of gasoline into a nearby truck and crashing it into the castle, causing a huge fire.

** In the episode "Temple of Mars" from the final season, [[spoiler:Betty]] goes on a journey filled with metaphors designed to subconsciously get her to realize that she can't save Simon from being the Ice King, and that her obsession with doing so is just making things worse and killing any hope she has of saving herself. [[spoiler:Betty]] briefly acknowledges and accepts the lesson, but after exiting the temple she rejects it, talks about how much of a {{Determinator}} [[TheHero Finn]] was during the journey, and that it has made her decide that she just has to try harder to save Simon.

* While spying on [[WesternAnimation/TotallySpies Alex]] and [[Anime/RanmaOneHalf Ranko]] for potential blackmail material in ''[[http://cartoon.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600095039&chapter=2 How I Learned to Love a Wild Horse]]'', Caitlyn witnesses Ranko break down crying over her life and being comforted by Alex. For a moment she considers that editing the tape she's filming to make it look like an intimate moment is a dick move. But then she decides she'll simply advise Mandy not to post it online (and thus cause Genma and the Tendos to find out where he is) but if Mandy does anyway, oh well.

Ron learns this and, repulsed by Lynn's actions, writes a story exposing her as a fake, resulting in her show being cancelled and leaving Lynn vowing revenge on Kim and Ron. Lynn learns about Kim dating a football player named Brick Flagg (actually, a fake story Ron made up to get himself on the papers for Middleton High) and kidnaps him, taking him to the abandoned Middleton Fairgrounds and tying him on a coaster.
