* Wrestling/RandyOrton's whole motive for going after Wrestling/TripleH during the road to their WrestleMania 25 match was because Triple H screwed him out of his first title run-which was exactly what happen. It was not help by the fact that during the feud he was going after Triple H's family the Mcmahon's who all were at best AssholeVictim's

* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'':
** A strange example, but one that nevertheless counts, comes up when Prince Hans tells Elsa not to kill two soldiers who had just tried to kill her, saying that it [[MoralEventHorizon will make her the monster people feared her as]]. This is most likely done to manipulate her, since he's able to take advantage of her hesitation to redirect one of their crossbows to knock down the ice chandelier and knock her out, but she accepts his point. [[spoiler:He also points out how stupid Anna was for falling for him at first sight- all the more of a Jerkass move because he's gloating over his betrayal of her, and all the more of a good point after he's shown his true colors.]]

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''
** Chief Bogo is a curt, tough, demanding boss known for his brutal honesty and has issues with Judy being assigned to his precinct feeling she is a political appointee for PR purposes. But when he chews her out for abandoning her post to chase after a thief, and even worse, ''continuing the chase through the highly fragile Little Rodentia district'', he's certainly right about her actions being [[CowboyCop unacceptably reckless]].
** Mayor Lionheart, without informing the police or the public, [[spoiler:incarcerates several predator mammals who have gone savage, though he keeps them safe in rooms where casualties are minimized, provides them with food and water, and has a round-the-clock medical team trying to find a cure]]. While he does this partly because he's worried about his reputation, he's also worried that telling the public about what he's done before he can find a concrete answer will cause mass panic, even shouting his concerns after [[spoiler:he's been arrested by the Zootopia Police Department]]. Sure enough, once what Lionheart was covering up gets made public, that's exactly what happens. Even the ZPD ultimately has to acknowledge that what Lionheart did, while questionable, made sense at the time.

* Wrestling/MuhammadHassan's story arc was that he was an Arab-American wrestler who was angry at the discrimination he faced post-9/11.

* Wrestling/MuhammadHassan's Subverted with Wrestling/MuhammadHassan. His story arc was that he was an Arab-American wrestler who was angry at the discrimination he faced post-9/11.post-9/11. Faces like Wrestling/JohnCena conceded that Hassan might have had a point, but that didn't give him the right to attack people with no provocation or insult the audience that hadn't done anything to him.
-->'''John Cena:''' These people don't have you because you're Arab-American. They hate you because you're Asshole-American.

** Hilgya, a cleric of Loki and Durkon's EvilCounterpart in the Linear Guild, is quite [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]] and [[TheHedonist hedonistic]], admitting that she follows Loki so that she can do as she wishes and still get into a pleasant afterlife. That said, she has a point when she criticizes the idea of dwarves being expected to live and die honorably, lest they be enslaved by Hel in the afterlife, simply as a result of Hel's "bet" with Thor. [[spoiler:If Hel succeeds in her EvilPlan, and manages to convince the other gods to end the world, every single dwarf alive will die a non-honorable death and be damned for all eternity, thus granting Hel incredible power]].

** For all his snark, Maui really makes a lot of good points, from the glaringly obvious (the ocean choosing a sheltered, naive teenager) to essential life lessons (she has to rely on herself). However, the most important one is arguably the most poignant. Near the movie's climax, he finally gets fed up with Moana and abandons her, but not before chiding her for being unnecessarily reckless and nearly getting both of them killed (which she's done multiple times at this point). The whole scene is sad, but Maui is still right about Moana being too headstrong and failing to the consider the consequences.

It's a fair bit more poignant if one considers that Maui may also be speaking from experience here.

** The election {{Lampshaded}} it: aside for Moses and Enrico, there was Alberto in the running, and came close to beat Enrico by promising to do ''exactly as Moses did, only presenting it better''.

** Ilia Amitola, an EvilFormerFriend of Blake's who works for the White Fang, gets a moment of this when she declares that humans either hate Faunus or [[BystanderSyndrome simply stand back and let the hate happen]]. Her words serve as a CallBack to a moment in Volume 1, when Teams RWBY and JNPR (including Blake herself) witnessed Velvet Scarlatina, a rabbit Faunus, being harassed by [[TheBully Cardin Winchester]] and did nothing to intervene on Velvet's behalf despite being disgusted by Cardin's behavior.

* ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned''
** When Buwaro is having relationship trouble Kieri, Cliff who at this point has been rude and [[FantasticRacism disdainful]] to Buwaro [[http://www.sdamned.com/comic/326 points out]] that there's a good chance [[StarCrossedLovers their relationship]] might not work out.
** While Kieri isn't mean in any sense, when she attempts to [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim drive away]] [[spoiler:Buwaro and Rhea when she goes into save her brother]], she is correct in saying that [[http://www.sdamned.com/comic/720 they aren't fighters]], something Buwaro and Rhea [[http://www.sdamned.com/comic/723 immediately realise]].
** After [[spoiler:Kieri has been captured by demons lead by Buwaro's adoptive older brother [[CainAndAble Iratu]]]], Buwaro still thinks he can still be reasoned with till [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Rhea]] [[http://www.sdamned.com/comic/782 angrily shouts]] that he keeps making excuses for [[spoiler:Iratu even though he keeps mistreating Buwaro and that he also needs to choose between saving Kieri or familial loyalty, he chooses the former]].

* Kokichi Ouma of the [[VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3 third game in the series]] plays this role most effectively, coldly [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructing]] the series' themes of using hope, trust, and ThePowerOfFriendship to solve the murder cases. To top himself off, he retaliates to criticisms of [[KickTheDog his actions]] by calling out the other student's flaws, like Shuichi's indecisiveness, Maki's lack of cooperation, and Kaito and Kaede's blind trust in everyone else. It's very telling how his speeches tend to leave the other characters floundering for a retort.
