* Blinky Bill in third season. Basil says his brother Cyril is all your fault
* Helga Pataki says it twice in the same scene of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', "Phoebe Breaks A Leg".
** Arnold also says this after he somehow caused Helga to go blind, [[spoiler: which turns out not to be the case, but he doesn't know that]]. Matters are not made better by Grandpa, who keeps prattling on how Helga will somehow get by, somehow, even after what Arnold did to her. Of course Helga plays this up enormously, as it keeps Arnold completely at her back and call.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Bart, on his dog running away, says this phrase, following it with "I called him a dumb dog". The rest of the family blame themselves as well.
** Also, Marge says that Homer getting thrown into a U.K. jail is "partially my fault" in the episode "The Regina Monologues".
** This was also done in an earlier episode ("Bart the Lover"), where Bart said "I can't help but feel partly responsible." when he was entirely responsible for Mrs Krabapple's hurt feelings.
** Another one: When Maude Flanders gets KilledOffForReal after being hit by cannon-launched T-shirts while getting hot dogs, Ned worries it's all his fault, for not getting them himself.
--->'''Homer:''' Don't blame yourself, Ned. After all, it was me who insisted we go to the game. It was me who provoked the lethal barrage of T-shirts. It was me who parked in the ambulance zone, negating any possibility of resuscitation... But let's not play the ''blame game''!
** Furthermore, when Homer drove Ned into moving away, he lamented "It's all somebody's fault!"
** Yet another example; after Homer refuses to pull over and let Grandpa go to the bathroom, Grandpa's kidneys burst. Homer's response? "I blame myself!" Marge's response? "We ''all'' blame you."
** In "Bart vs. Thanksgiving", Bart hears Lisa blaming herself for Bart running away on Thanksgiving. Homer and Marge also feel bad for being too harsh on Bart during dinner.
--->'''Marge:''' Homer, this is a terrible thing that's happened, but we can't blame ourselves.\\
'''Homer:''' We can, and we will!
** Another Marge example come from "Lemon of Troy", when she finds out that that her lesson to Bart on pride for his town [[GoneHorriblyRight worked too well]] and turned him into an outright xenophobe.
* Skipper in ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' does this twice in a matter of about 12 episodes. The first time he poked a hole in Julien's bouncy house causing him to lose his crown and that was his fault in fairness, but the second, when [[spoiler: one of the chimps causes him and the penguins to spin out and loss a race to the lemurs and by default their car also]] he accepts full responsibility despite the fact he did nothing that caused it. He even said they would have resignation in the morning because of his shame and guilt.



* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' episode "Curse of the Kobra" after Zander kidnaps Max.
-->'''Terry:''' I never should've introduced him to Max.\\
'''Bruce:''' Don't blame yourself.\\
'''Terry:''' Why not? It's my fault.\\
'''Bruce:''' I know, but blaming's not productive.
* Used in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' when Ben thinks that [[spoiler: Gwen has died]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' episode "Oneupsman Chip", Chip's joke on Dale backfires when it leads the latter out of safety and right into the hands of archenemy Fat Cat's men. A dejected Chip says "This is all my fault", and the other Rangers console him... until Gadget blurts out that "although basically, you ''did'' trick him into going there." Great consolation, Gadget. Chip bonks himself on the head and resolves to rescue his friend.

--->'''Philip:''' Terrance, I--\\
'''Terrance:''' No. No, Phillip, don't say it. I'm an asshole, and this is mostly my fault.\\

* Said word for word by [[JerkassWoobie Eddy]] in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddysBigPictureShow'' after a particularly cruel quicksand prank pulled by him and Ed on Double-D enrages the latter to the point of preferring to be beaten within an inch of his life by the Cul-de-sac kids than hang around with Ed and Eddy any longer.

* The Brain, of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', after he accidentally pushes Pinky off the countertop they are standing on: "It's all my fault! This obsession with taking over the world is causing me to hurt the ones I... tolerate."
* In the ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' cartoon, Luigi blames himself for the cave people's crops being stolen. (This scene has, needless to say, been [[MemeticMutation memetically mutated]] in YouTubePoop and nicknamed "Emo Luigi".)
-->'''Mario:''' Now wait, Luigi! The cave people can go back to picking berries.\\
'''Luigi:''' Aw, no they can't! Oh Mario, I was so sure that we'd have a great crop, that I told the cave people they didn't have to save berries anymore, and they didn't. They don't have any food stored for the winter. *sob* [[LargeHam AND IT'S ALL MY FAAAULT!]]

-->'''Jerrica:''' Oh, it's all my fault, if I'd just stop to listen! (starts to cry quietly)\\
'''Aja:''' We're all to blame.\\
'''Kimber:''' We should of given them more attention too!\\
'''Shana:''' We were all too busy when they needed us!



* This happens to Robin in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode "X". After the Red-X costume and equipment is stolen, he blames himself for creating the thing in the first place. (And no-one really argues with him about it, ''especially'' when he tells them that he used [[{{Unobtainium}} xenothium]] to power the suit, an unstable element that is so dangerous, even superheroes aren't legally allowed to buy it.)

-->Spaceflight will never tolerate carelessness, incapacity, and neglect. Somewhere, somehow, we screwed up. It could have been in design, build, or test. Whatever it was, we should have caught it. We were too gung ho about the schedule and we locked out all of the problems we saw each day in our work. Every element of the program was in trouble and so were we. The simulators were not working, Mission Control was behind in virtually every area, and the flight and test procedures changed daily. Nothing we did had any shelf life. Not one of us stood up and said, "Dammit, stop!" I don't know what Thompson's committee will find as the cause, but I know what I find. We are the cause! We were not ready! We did not do our job. We were rolling the dice, hoping that things would come together by launch day, when in our hearts we knew it would take a miracle. We were pushing the schedule and betting that the Cape would slip before we did. From this day forward, Flight Control will be known by two words: "Tough and Competent." Tough means we are forever accountable for what we do or what we fail to do. We will never again compromise our responsibilities. Every time we walk into Mission Control we will know what we stand for. Competent means we will never take anything for granted. We will never be found short in our knowledge and in our skills. Mission Control will be perfect. When you leave this meeting today you will go to your office and the first thing you will do there is to write "Tough and Competent" on your blackboards. It will never be erased. Each day when you enter the room these words will remind you of the price paid by Grissom, White, and Chaffee. These words are the price of admission to the ranks of Mission Control.

* Used as a very gut wrenching plot twist in ''VideoGame/SilentHillShatteredMemories''. [[spoiler: The Harry Mason you been playing as this whole time? DeadAllAlong. He's just Cheryl's memories. Harry gotten a divorce with Dahlia and Cheryl was disturbed enough to think that her parents didn't love her anymore. Right after the divorce, Harry dies in a car crash, which has Cheryl blaming herself for the divorce and her father's death. She spends the majority of her teenage years lashing out against her mother, causing trouble at school, and shoplifts. All the therapy sessions done in the game are actually from Chery's perspective where Dr. Kauffman tries to convince her that she is not to blame for Harry's divorce and death. Whether or not Cheryl gets over her issues depends on the player's responses and choices in the therapy sessions.]]
