* Turns 19 and 20 of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' revel in this, with [[spoiler:the Black Knights' [[KangarooCourt betrayal by gunpoint]] of Lelouch based on some spotty testimony and failure to realize he didn't necessarily use it on them given that they were even able to go ahead with the betrayal, and Ohgi telling Kallen that they don't need Zero any longer, evidently because they now had Britannian forces to help them find and kill Zero and get what they're after. The same Britannian forces they fought for liberation against, and were nearly killed by in episode one. Oh, and one of the people he trusts over Lelouch? The same woman who shot him during the Black Rebellion, because he's been stupidly in love with him. And never thinks to check her history to see how she got all that info or her agenda. In the end, they accuse him of using them, all the while not thinking the Britannians, which include [[DragonInChief Schneizel]], would not]]. They realize how faulty this is immediately. No matter how much firepower they have, in the grand scheme of things, without Lelouch, they're nothing.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBearThatWasnt'', a bear wakes up from hibernation to find a factory has been built over his cave. He is [[RunningGag told]] [[ArgumentumAdNauseum by everyone he meets]], from the foreman to the general manager all the way up to the company president, that he can't be a bear because bears aren't found in factories, but in zoos or circuses, and he must be "a silly man in a fur coat who needs a shave".

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10448834/1/Six-Paths-of-Rebellion Six Paths of Rebellion]]'', Suzaku is convinced that anything Britannia does is righteous and anything Zero does is evil. As a result, he blames the Zero and the Black Knights for the Shinjuku and Saitama Massacres. Furthermore when the Black Knights successfully free Japan, he's one of the people who chooses to leave to Britannia and can't understand how the Japanese can possibly be happy when their freedom was "created by a madman and a monster in human flesh". Several people including Naruto, Euphemia, and Lelouch, call him out on the ridiculousness and outright hypocrisy of his actions but Suzaku insists that they're wrong for overthrowing the corrupt system instead of trying to fix it.

* ''ComicBook/LadyDeath'': Queen Satasha hates the rebels after a battle against [[BigBad Death Queen's]] minions razed her kingdom with [[BuryYourGays her wife being killed in the conflict]]. Despite the fact that: 1) she offered sanctuary to the rebels because they were her friends and 2) her wife was killed by one of Death Queen's monsters, before Satasha's eyes no less. While, to her credit, she blames herself for accepting the rebels in the first place and [[AbdicateTheThrone surrenders the throne]] to atone for [[MyGreatestFailure failing to her subjects]], her hatred for them is so intense - more specifically, one of their key leaders Wargoth, that she provides TheDragon with the means to kill him, when he had absolutely nothing to do with her death. The thought of calling out Death Queen's followers for the attack never crosses her mind. In short: she wanted to avenge her beloved by siding with the party directly responsible against the other party which used to be friends with her and had nothing to do with it, because they lead their enemies to her home in the first place.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' revels in this. Seriously. In episode 2, Littner Village is attacked by a group of Gunmen. Kamina, being the insane badass he is, determines that, despite seeking shelter being a perfectly viable solution, the only way to survive the attack is to charge head-first at the strongest of the Gunmen and carry out a Gundamjack. It works.
** Episode 3: Gurren and Lagann are facing Viral's Enki and lose. Kamina's logic determines that the reason Viral defeated them is that Enki has 2 faces (one on the torso, and a head). Next day, they try fighting him again, and deciding that they need to have two faces to stand a change, Kamina picks up Lagann and slams it right down on top of Gurren. RuleOfCool, this trope and general badassery works together, and the two mecha ''actually combine'', even though it shouldn't.

** Given that in the ''TTGL'' universe, the [[RealityWarper reality-warping]] "Spiral Power" is determined by one's ability to be HotBlooded and daring no matter the circumstances, all of this actually makes a surprising amount of sense.
