* In ''VisualNovel/SilverCrisis'', when Lucas and Lucario first introduce themselves, Lucas says “Just Lucario?” in response to Lucario basically saying that [[ADogNamedDog he just wants to be called the name of his species.]] Later in the story, we see that Lucario repeated this same line [[spoiler: when he and his former Master first met each other, in response to Medicham also choosing to go by the name of his species.]] He then proceeds to state the importance of having a proper name, and how it makes the connections you have with others mean something. However, in the present day, he’s completely reversed those beliefs he'd had at that point in time, hence why he also has [[spoiler: forsaken the original name his trainer gave him.]]
--> '''Lucario:''' ''"Even if fickle, a name means more than just an identity. It gives meaning to the connections you have with the people who call you that name."''

** At the climax of Season 13, [[FauxAffablyEvil Felix]] tells [[ConsummateProfessional Locus]] that he's gonna kill the Reds and Blues "not because of [[BigBad Hargrove]], but for [[RevengeBeforeReason me]]" and yells at him to "for once in your life, forget about following your goddamn orders!" [[spoiler:After Locus learns about how Felix [[UnwittingPawn has been intentionally using him and encouraging his PTSD for his own benefit and survival]], he turns on Felix by telling him he's "not doing this for the reward or because someone told me too. I'm doing this for me," and thus lets him [[KarmicDeath get his just desserts]]]].

** For his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSzWSGPuvQI "Congrats, Indians!"]] made after the Cleveland Indians were knocked out of the 2017 postseason, he plays a clip of a play-by-play announcer proclaiming "Once again[[note]]the previous season they made it to an extra-innings Game 7 of the World Series before losing to the Chicago Cubs[[/note]] Cleveland, you will have an October to remember!" after they had clinched a playoff spot, then again after winning the first two games of a best-of-five series against the New York Yankees...before losing the next three.
** His [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yCZB5Egz7A postmortem on the 2017 Cleveland Browns]] includes a clip from the end of the previous season where Browns head coach Hue Jackson states that the team would not go 1-15 again. ''Strictly speaking'' he was right...[[FromBadToWorse the team went 0-16]].

* ''Hero of War'' by Music/RiseAgainst tells a story of a man, who joins the military in hopes of gaining glory, but also out of a sense of patriotism. The song repeats a phrase "It's a flag that I love" thrice. Two times it presumably refers to a flag of his country, but the third instance refers to [[spoiler:a white flag, belonging to a woman he killed during his service]]

* ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'':
** Father Alexander Anderson gets to throw out two of these back to back against [[SinisterMinister Bishop Maxwell]] in the eighth episode. Maxwell, leader of a RenegadeSplinterFaction of the Catholic Church, led his forces to England first to defeat Millennium and to kill as many Protestants as possible before intending to return to Italy and overthrow Pope Francis and name Maxwell the new Pope. When ordering his men to fire on the English bystanders, Maxwell tells them give no quarter to sinners and let God sort them out. Later, apparently not satisfied with the thought of being Pope, he takes a page out of [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami's]] playbook and declares himself [[AGodAmI the god of this new world]]. Shortly afterward Anderson betrays Maxwell, throwing him to the horde of [[ZombieApocalypse ghouls]] Alucard has unleashed. When Maxwell demands to know why, Anderson quotes the purpose of their organization: "To [[DemonSlaying destroy the demon]], [[TheFundamentalist the heretic]], ''and the false god''." Maxwell then tries to say that he doesn't deserve such a death, and Anderson simply quotes him about giving sinners no quarter and letting God sort them out.
** Later in the episode, Anderson tells his subordinate Heinkel that one doesn't have to obey a leader "when he's acting like a daft [[CountryMatters cunt]]." After that Anderson goes to attempt to challenge Alucard, an immortal HumanoidAbomination who has long since proven himself all but unkillable and has only now unleashed his true power. When Anderson inevitably gets in over his head, Heinkel and the rest of the Iscariot organization comes back to save him despite Anderson having ordered them to safety. Heinkel throws the bit about not having to follow orders if your leader is acting like a daft cunt back in Anderson's face, who isn't happy about it despite the fact that he certainly appreciates having been saved from certain death.
