* 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.

* In the ''Theatre/PhoenixWrightMusicalProject'', the song "Decree of the Prosecutor" has Edgeworth go through one. He reflects on his actions and wonders if using underhand tactics in the court makes him no better than the murderous people he prosecutes. He eventually decides that it's worth it, because "every criminal earns his punishment,/ so [he's] always done all [he] could/ What's the harm in filling in the blanks to some extent?/ If it's for the greater good?/ Indeed. If the defendant is clearly guilty, then [his] methods, no matter how extreme, should not be an issue at all!" He then wonders if his true motivations are actually caused by his personal feelings of "pretentious piety", but dismisses the notion on the grounds that it's best to use extreme methods to ensure that other people are spared the pain of loss that he himself went through.

** Skinner tries to find where Bart is playing hooky, but all the places he expects Bart to be hanging out (like the 4-H Club) are abandoned. Skinner asks himself if he's really become this out-of-touch, but then only concludes, "No, it's the ''children'' who are wrong."

** At some later point, the [[GeniusLoci Castle]] mentions an incident regarding a previous master :
-->"Master Robur thought they were ''Angels'' [..] He believed heaven itself was coming to punish him. Though he ''was'' rather fuzzy on which sin in particular had crossed the line. He experienced a genuine ''crisis of faith''. He didn't like it. So he smashed his device, which banished the... well, banished whatever they were... Then he had ''pie''. Crisis over. In many ways he was a refreshingly ''simple'' man."

* 200 years before the ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' DLC ''Dead Money'', Dean Domino concocted a scheme to ruin Frederic Sinclair and rob him of everything he has, [[EvilIsPetty purely out of envy that Sinclair was happier than him]]. Though he never managed to accomplish the robbing part, his scheme did result in the Sierra Madre becoming the poisonous Hellscape you see it as, as well as the tragic deaths of Sinclair and his love interest, Vera Keyes. If Dean (now a ghoul) survives to the end of the DLC, he will learn what happened to Sinclair and Vera and is said to feel remorse for his actions... except [[EvilCannotComprehendGood he doesn't understand]] ''[[EvilCannotComprehendGood why]]'' [[EvilCannotComprehendGood he feels sad]], so he merely shrugs it off. It's at least enough to make him give up on robbing the Sierra Madre Casino... and set his sights on the casinos of New Vegas instead.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', this is the [[PlanetOfHats hat]] of the Dark Eldar -- they deliberately continue the nightmarishly hedonistic ways that brought their civilization to ruin, [[spoiler:primarily because they'll be utterly destroyed if they don't.]]
