** Meena's grandfather has a tendency to be abrasive, especially when it comes to his granddaughter's stage fright, but when it comes down to it, he's completely right that Meena has to overcome it if she wants to pursue her dream of singing.

* Hiyoko Saionji, a bully who enjoys squashing ants for fun, sometimes plays a role similar to the first game's Byakuya in [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2 the sequel]]. After the first murder, she points out that everyone has to get their acts together and find the killer, or everyone besides the killer will die. After the second trial ends, in which it is revealed that [[spoiler:Fuyuhiko didn't kill Hiyoko's best friend, Mahiru, but was responsible for her death]], she coldly blames him for everything that happened. [[spoiler:Fuyuhiko]] agrees, then [[spoiler:attempts {{Seppuku}}]] in an attempt at atoning for his crime.



* In VisualNovel/PlumbersDontWearTies, if you choose to have Thresher reject Jane after she begs him for a job, he will launch into a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech against her that shows that he's a rude, misogynistic pervert with a low opinion of job seekers. That said, the main point of his argument- that with over 200 qualified applicants for each position, [[QuitYourWhining Jane shouldn't think that she's the only "desperate" one out there]]- is fairly sound.

Jane doesn't argue with him- she politely tries to excuse himself after he's made his point, then walks out.



* In the ''Film/{{Downfall}}'' [[WebVideo/HitlerRants parodies]], Hitler is a [[{{Jerkass}} mean]] and [[HairTriggerTemper hot-tempered]] villain who throws rages at a tip of a hat over [[SeriousBusiness anything and everything]], but that doesn't make his rants on the fatal flaws of popular culture any less credible.

* ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'': In "Surprise Parties," while Weiss [[BrutalHonesty telling Ruby point-blank]] that she's terrible at throwing surprise parties is undoubtedly harsh, she makes a valid point considering that her previous attempts have resulted in chaos, including Professor Port suffering a near-fatal heart attack. Blake even agrees with her.

** There's little sense to Batman creating a plan to take himself out because he'd know the plan. It would be incumbent on the others to make a plan to take him out.

** Another good example of this appears in volume #1 of ''[[ComicBook/XMenGoldAndBlue X-Men Gold]]'', where a nameless interviewee points out that as mutants develop their powers at random, and those powers can be any combination of extremely dangerous and extremely hard to control, this means any mutant could be not only a PersonOfMassDestruction, but also an extremely volatile time-bomb. In essence, she compares being around mutants to being around unstable nitroglycerine... and she's ''not wrong'' to do so; even in the Original 5 X-Men, Cyclops' inability to control his eyebeams makes him one missing pair of glasses away from suddenly vaporizing a building full of people. Especially when you factor in that [[RePower Secondary Mutations]] are an InUniverse factor, so even a mutant established as harmless might suddenly turn into a destructive monster. It's not a very ''probable'' occurrence, but it ''is'' a legitimate concern.
