* A teenage boy felt ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman was his fault, because he inadvertently distracted Supes with his cries for help in a stage where Supes could have ''possibly'' finished Doomsday off.

* In the ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}''/Franchise/GreenLantern crossover ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' Guy Gardner blames himself for everything [[BigBad Atrocitus]] does (driving his friend Rankorr mindlessly mad, ravaging planet Ysmault...) because Guy defeated him, and Atrocitus wants to pay him back.

* Practically each member of TheBradyBunch goes through this in ''AVeryBradySequel'': After a smuggler kidnaps Carol and ties the children and Alice to the staircase, Bobby, Cindy, [[SerialEscalation Cindy's doll]], Peter, Greg, Alice, and Jan each consider something they could have done to foil his scheme, then think "This is all my fault." Marcia actually [[NeverMyFault averted]] this, and instead thought, "This is all [[TheUnfavorite Jan's]] fault."

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''. With his entire family taken prisoner by Syndrome, Bob Parr apologises to everyone for getting them into this mess, in an attempt to relive his glory days instead of treasuring his family. As Helen Parr agrees entirely with this assessment, she prevents the kids from informing Dad that Violet's in the process of setting them free.

* As the troops were planning to disembark for the Normandy landings in WorldWarII, General Eisenhower wrote two letters, the first one commending the troops for their efforts in securing the beaches and the liberation of France. He also wrote a second one in case the beach landings failed (which was a real possibility due to the bad weather, massively complex scheme, and stout German defenses), in which he diverted blame upon himself and not the troops ("It is mine alone"). When the invasion proved successful, Eisenhower was going to toss the second letter away, but a junior officer read it and insisted it be preserved for historical value.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': Goku blames himself for Krillin's first death during the King Piccolo Saga, since the only reason Krillin went back to the stadium was to retrieve Goku's Power Pole and Dragon Ball, which Goku carelessly left behind because he was exhausted from fighting Tien, where Krillin had the misfortune of running into Tambourine.

** In season six's "Two to Go," Xander blames himself for the entire [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Dark Willow]] scenario, since he saw the gun in Warren's hand before he even raised it, but was simply frozen with fear and did nothing to stop him from shooting Buffy and Tara.

* In ''TigerAndBunny'', Ivan/Origami Cyclone guilts himself for [[spoiler:his best friend Edward's imprisonment and disbarment as a hero, because Ivan's reluctance to intervene in a hostage situation led Edward to accidentally kill someone]]. Thus, when Edward breaks out of jail to get revenge on him, Ivan resigns himself to his death in order to atone. Telling him it wasn't his fault has no effect on him, so Kotetsu tries a different approach.

* On ''DragonBallZ'', Gohan blames himself for his father's second death, when he could've just instantly slaughtered Cell and instead decided to [[RevengeBeforeReason torture him]], which led to Cell having a VillainousBreakdown and attempt a TakingYouWithMe, prompting [[ChronicHeroSyndrome Goku]] to step up and sacrifice himself for Earth's sake, [[SenselessSacrifice which didn't work]].

* Shikamaru in ''{{Naruto}}'' says this at the end of a mission that got very nearly two of his friends killed. Neither his boss, his father nor his potential love interest deny that it is, but urge him to instead think of the failure as motivation to do better the next time, rather than run away from responsibility and risk entrusting his friends to someone who might not bring them back alive.

* Chrono says this during his HeroicBSOD in the anime adaption of ''ChronoCrusade'', essentially implying that ''everything'' bad that happened in the story so far had been his fault. In the manga itself he never says this, but he does imply several times that he feels responsible for much of what's happened.

* Miaka from ''FushigiYuugi'' blames herself for a number of stuff throughout the series: [[spoiler:Getting Yui ''almost'' raped, having the Seishi have to donate blood to her (from the wrist and the chest, to boot), losing the Universe of the Four Gods scroll, losing the Shinzahou, etc....]]

* In ''PokemonSpecial'', both [[spoiler: Ruby and Sapphire]] blame themselves for screwing the other over as kids. [[spoiler: Sweet little Sapphire blames herself for being too weak when she couldn't do anything when Ruby nearly got killed protecting her, therefore resolving to becoming stronger]], while [[spoiler: battle-ready Ruby blames himself for being too fierce and thus terrifying Sapphire, therefore resolving to focus on beauty]]. Both wanted to show their new selves to each other to show how much they changed and that everything would be alright, but the ultimate irony is that when they are finally reunited, they fail to recognize each other, get off on the wrong foot, and berate the other for the attributes they themselves once had.

* [[{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] has a habit of thinking like this, pretty independently of whether things are in that instance actually his fault...probably because he has a massive guilt complex about A) continuing to run around even though so much chaos folllows him wherever he goes and B) not having neutralized his EvilTwin yet. Since he is then responsible for all incidental misfortunes and any actions taken by the BigBad, this trope just kind of happens.

* The same cannot be said for Negi of ''MahouSenseiNegima'', who blames himself for the attack on his home village. After all, he was looking for trouble so his father could save him, right? Fortunately, Asuna tells him he's wrong.
