* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Weiss, despite being an AcademicAlphaBitch who goes out of her way to insult others, frequently makes good points.
** When Ruby jumps ''directly in front'' of Weiss' magic attack to take out the enemy they were both focused on, Weiss makes the point that Ruby's recklessness and lack of communication nearly got herself killed.
** While she's rather harsh with Ruby in episode 10, it's because she's angry at the supposed team leader for cheerfully slacking off in class.
** Her argument with Blake regarding the White Fang in the penultimate episode of volume 1. While Weiss is clearly [[FantasticRacism bigoted]] towards the Faunus in general, as shown by her reaction to Sun's petty crimes and mischief making, her hatred of the White Fang is not unjustified, since they ''are'' a terrorist group trying to KillAllHumans and her family has personally suffered at their hands.
** Weiss' father Jacques is a self-centered, remorseless profiteer, but he also understands consequences. Ironwood bans Dust shipments to starve the enemy of fuel which damages Jacques' profit margins. Ironwood dismisses Jacques' concern that the Kingdoms will turn on Atlas as stocks run out as self-interest, so Jacques organizes a fundraiser on behalf of Vale to improve PR. Ironwood later locks down Atlas as a precaution against invasion, leaving Jacques concerned that Ironwood is amassing too much power at a time when his judgement is impaired by guilt over Ozpin's fate. Seeing only Jacques' selfishness, Ironwood threatens him in a borderline abuse of power, thereby validating Jacques' concerns.

* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', Sonya is a drama-addicted StalkerWithACrush towards Zii, but pursues Gary for his sexual skills and to put one over on her rival Yuki, actively setting out to seduce him while he and Yuki are a couple; then, when Yuki drops Gary, Sonya gloats over her, and shortly afterwards dumps Gary (in mid-sex, even). [[VillainHasAPoint "Jerkass" may be an understatement with her]]. ''But'' - she is completely correct in saying that the phallophobic Yuki is a lousy girlfriend for Gary or any other man, she is very happy to show Gary just how much better off he is dating someone who doesn't regularly kick him in the crotch, and she even tries to offer him good advice (which he, as ever, ignores) when dumping him. Even her attempts to seduce Zii away from Erik involve her shrewdly pointing out that Zii doesn't seem to find that relationship totally satisfying - which, given her usual level of smarts, could also qualify as a case of DumbassHasAPoint. And she's one of the few people to call [=DiDi=] on her monstrous, unthinking sense of entitlement.

* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' is full of fairly dumb or self-deluded individuals, so the occasional snarky comment from less-than-perfect characters is all too often justified.
** Roxie's reactions to [=DiDi's=] behavior and Damien's flirtatious ways are often ill-tempered and sometimes ridiculously violent, but a lot of what she says about both of them is true.
** Senna is a classic RichBitch. However...
*** While they are in Paris together, she suggests to Gary that they might visit some of the famous museums and galleries -- but Gary dives straight into a video game shop, much to Senna's annoyance. She may be a cultural snob, but some readers share her exasperation at Gary's narrow vision.
*** Later, Gary dumps her -- for which few readers blame him. But he doesn't seem to understand that he's done so, and makes a joke of the idea to Senna herself. Few readers blame her for slapping his face, either.

* At the time of his heel run in 2012, Wrestling/CMPunk went ''postal'' when Wrestling/JohnCena won the "Superstar of the Year" award of the Slammy Awards, demanding why someone who got destroyed by Wrestling/BrockLesnar, lost to [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], lost to Punk, failed to win with MITB, and couldn't win Wrestling/DolphZiggler's title shot won an award over someone who held the WWE Championship every day of 2012. While these Slammys were determined entirely by popular vote, Punk brought up some credible points. To his credit, Cena obviously agreed as the look on his face when he came out to receive it was a combination of OhCrap and ThisIsGonnaSuck, not aided by the fact that the award show was in [[Wrestling/{{ECW}} Philadelphia]]. Cm punk was rightfully upset about not getting any respect when he was champion all year long yet most of the time was still playing second fiddle to Cena.

** Funny enough Cm Punk's fed with Ortion at Wrestlemania 27 feud was over a similar issue where Punk was after Orton because Orton cost him his first title run by attacking him out before his title match and taking him out of the match as a result, thus Punk never properly lost his belt.

* Triple H and Stephanie Mcmahon calling out John Cena for attacking skinny middle aged Jon Stewart. Granted Stewart had cost Cena his title match against Rollins, but still Cena did come off as a sore loser.

to:

* Wrestling/TheBigShow's FaceHeelTurn at "Over The Limit 2012" came as a result of the fact that after he was fired by Wrestling/JohnLaurinaitis for mocking his voice, none of the faces on the roster nor the fans stood up to Laurinaitis on his behalf.
* The turns of [[Wrestling/RonKillings R-Truth]], Wrestling/MarkHenry, and Wrestling/{{Christian}} all within two months of each other during Spring 2011. R-Truth won a title shot against Wrestling/TheMiz's WWE championship, but the week after, Wrestling/JohnMorrison convinced him to put his title shot on the line. R-Truth snapped when Morrison won the match and took his title shot out of his hands. Mark Henry was in his ''fifteenth year'' in the industry and was tired of nobody taking him seriously for that long, so it's no wonder why he finally snapped. Christian finally won his first world title at "Extreme Rules", but Teddy Long forced him to defend it the very next episode of ''[=SmackDown=]'' against Wrestling/RandyOrton, seeing his dream abruptly ended in just [[strike:two]] five days.
** These stories all came together into the COO Triple H "vote of no confidence" angle that fall, as that time period would see heels being increasingly brutalized at the hands of faces, and the faces in question going completely unpunished (most notably, the fact that WWE did nothing to stop Hugh Jackman, a non-wrestler, from breaking Dolph Ziggler's nose in a match against Zack Ryder). Around the time, R-Truth formed the "Awesome Truth" tag team with The Miz (who was furious at how rapidly he had fallen down the card since losing the WWE Championship that May). Once Triple H fired them, they started randomly attacking WWE stars, creating an increasingly unsafe WWE environment, and eventually leading the heels to revolt and stage a walkout.
* Wrestling/MuhammadHassan's story arc was that he was an Arab-American wrestler who was angry at the discrimination he faced post-9/11.

** The Nicelanders are fairly justified in not wanting Ralph to join the party, considering he ''is'' a WalkingDisasterArea who wrecks things as he walks and, true to form, has completely ruined the party within minutes of attending[[note]]Granted he did cause some of the trouble after losing his temper for how badly they treat him, but still[[/note]]. It doesn't come close to justifying how shabbily they (or ''any'' of the other characters for that matter) treat him overall, however, considering he is a genuinely good person who's just a bit rough around the edges.
** Ralph, for his part, may be destructive and have a bad temper, which resulted in him inadvertently ruining the party, but he also has plenty reason to be upset. He's been shunned and has lived in the dump for thirty years, and the Nicelanders and Felix never even bothered to ask him how he feels or help out. The destruction isn't nearly as bad as it seems either, since [[DeathIsCheap dead characters regenerate instantly]] and damage can be [[MrFixIt fixed with a magic hammer in seconds]]. Admittedly, the Nicelanders may have had a point in banning him from this ''specific'' party, since characters from ''other games'' [[DeaderThanDead don't regenerate]], but the fact that Ralph has never even eaten cake ''at all'' indicates that they've done nothing but ostracize him, which leaves them with no excuse.

** While Elsa isn't being particularly understanding, she's 100% right in telling Anna it's ridiculous to want to [[FourthDateMarriage marry a man you just met.]] Kristoff, who's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, later agrees.
*** [[spoiler: Elsa's eventually proven right, when Prince Hans reveals he doesn't love Anna and was only taking advantage of her naivety. He planned to marry her and kill Elsa so he'd ascend to the throne, as he has too many older brothers to ever have a shot of ruling his own kingdom.]]
