* During the ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}''/''ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIDW'' {{crossover}}, it's discovered that Splinter and the Turtles are slowly being BroughtDownToNormal as a result of their presence in the DCUniverse, with them allying with Batman to get back home. During this time, Raphael gets impatient with Batman and gives him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, outright declaring him to be nothing but "a selfish little rich kid" who beats up bad guys for the fun of it who he refuses to put his faith in. Raph gets hit with this trope when Batman takes him to Crime Alley, where his [[DeathByOriginStory parents were gunned down in front of him]], and explains how that loss motivates him to do what he does.

* In the ''Literature/TheRailwaySeries'' book ''[[Recap/TheRailwaySeriesB30MoreAboutThomasTheTankEngine More About Thomas The Tank Engine]]'', Thomas and Percy got into a bitter quarrel which started with Thomas blaming Percy for intentionally covering him in coal, and in the last book "Drip Tank", Thomas was even more unsympathetic towards Percy, calling him a "drip" during their argument in the sheds. After Percy rescues him from his accident with a punctured water tank, Thomas becomes ashamed of his behavior, and apologizes to him for calling him a "drip" and finally reconciles their friendship. It is from that point on that Thomas [[TookALevelInKindness becomes more humble and kind throughout the series.]]

* In the ''Pokemon'' fanfic ''FanFic/APikachuInLove'', Pikachu has several of these in regards to how coldly he's been acting to Ash, but what really hits home is when [[spoiler: Misty is carrying him back to the camp site after he had been attacked by the Ursaring, and she starts to talk about how much they all love him and how devastated they'd be if something had happened to them, ''especially'' Ash. It's at this point Pikachu realizes just how loved he is, and that Ash would never forget about him or leave him behind.]]

* At one point in ''{{VideoGame/Persona 3}}'', Junpei suddenly comes to the conclusion that he had been a jerkass to the protagonist; apologizes, and is more pleasant afterwords. What makes this so surprising is that despite the franchise, this did ''not'' require a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind or a revelation gained from battling one's [[ADarkerMe dark reflection]].

** In "Suited for Success," Rarity's friends criticize the dresses she makes for them for the Grand Galloping Gala ([[ComplainingAboutThingsYouHaventPaidFor free of charge and out of kindness, mind you]]), and bombard her with suggestions to make the dresses look ''exactly'' the way they want them to. Unfortunately for Rarity, her friends' tacky fashion sense nearly destroys her career when she displays the new dresses at a fashion show attended by an understandably offended critic. The guilt-ridden five make it up to her by completing her own unfinished dress with her designs and throwing another fashion show with the original dresses that blows the critic away.
** Fluttershy has one in the episode "Putting Your Hoof Down." In the episode she takes assertiveness lessons in order to quit being a [[ShrinkingViolet pushover]], but takes them too far and [[TookALevelInJerkAss becomes a jerk]]. She comes to her realization after brutally tearing into Rarity and Pinkie Pie for their love of fashion and parties, respectively, driving them off in tears.
-->"'''I'm''' the monster..."
** Rarity in "Sisterhooves Social". After blowing off her little sister Sweetie Belle as an inconvenience following one too many blunders--shrinking her favorite wool sweater in the wash; using up her spare gemstones to decorate a drawing; and tidying a design room that's ''supposed'' to be messy--Rarity begins to soften when she finds innovative ways to incorporate those blunders into her work. She remains peeved about the gems, though, until she finds them forming a heart shape around Sweetie Belle's drawing of the two sisters. Rarity cries "MyGodWhatHaveIDone" and spends the rest of the episode trying to win her sister back.
** Rainbow Dash learns it very fast in "Hurricane Fluttershy," realizing that her brusque manner of coaching and motivating the other pegusi is only terrifying her friend early in the episode, and makes an effort to be much calmer and praises her when she really improves, despite the improved to level still being a bit low. Played both ways, since Fluttershy first agrees to training out of guilt when a dejected Rainbow Dash submits to her refusal to take part.

In ''May the Best Pet Win'' she realizes at the end, when Tank saves her, that she was choosing a pet based on athletic ability and not what really makes a good pet.

** Happens two ways in the two-part episode "A Canterlot Wedding." In the first episode, Twilight accuses Princess Cadance of being "evil" (admittedly with little to no actual evidence to back her up), to which her accusations were easily dispelled by her brother, Shining Armor. The result leaves her alienated from her brother, friends and mentor, and she tearfully apologizes to Cadance for her accusations. [[spoiler:Then it turns out Cadance really ''is'' evil, albeit an evil imposter named Queen Chrysalis, who is exposed to the rest of the cast by the real Cadance in the second part. As she prepares to take over Canterlot, [[JerkassHasAPoint she smugly tells off the ponies for ignoring Twilight and letting her plan go through]], leading a solemn Applejack to apologize to Twilight on everyone's behalf]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode, "So Funny, I Forgot to Laugh," Arthur starts to make fun of Sue Ellen due to her wearing a wooly sweater to school. He constantly makes a bunch of jokes about how Sue Ellen looks like a sheepdog and even draws a picture of Sue Ellen with a sheepdog's body and sticks it to her locker. Arthur finally goes too far when he photoshops a sheepdog's head over a photo of Sue Ellen and emails it to her, and when Sue Ellen sees it, she is reduced to tears. It isn't until Arthur hears that Sue Ellen is thinking about switching classes that he realizes that he was being a bully to her and he finally apologizes.
** There was also the episode "Draw" where Fern gets mad at Francine for calling her a "mouse" and she decides to get back at her by creating a bunch of mean drawings about her and gets all the others to join in. They soon find out that they went too far after they hear Francine telling Mrs. Macgrady about the whole thing and she's done talking, she starts to cry.

* In ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', the eponymous hero never holds back from [[BrutalHonesty telling the truth as he sees it]], generally [[LackOfEmpathy not caring]] (or [[NoSocialSkills even realizing]]) if he offends or upsets people in the process. But every now and then he has a moment of clarity where he belatedly realizes just how insensitive he’s being. One notable example is when he draws attention to one of Molly’s hand-wrapped Christmas presents, stating that she’s obviously arranged it specifically for someone she has romantic feelings for, and spends a good few minutes rather brutally lampooning her for it, before picking up the parcel and realizing that it’s ''his'' name written on the card (by which time Molly is close to tears and everyone else in the room is massively uncomfortable). For once, he not only realizes what a jerk he has been, he actually ''apologizes'', [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness to the shock of everyone watching]].

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': After evolving, Ash's Charizard becomes openly disrespectful to him, repeatedly refusing to obey him and either sleeping instead of battling or just becoming a raging [[TheBerserker Berserker]]. During the Orange Islands arc, this attitude leads to Charizard nearly getting the flame on its tail doused by a Poliwrath's Water Gun, and then nearly killed by an Ice Beam, leading Ash to spend the entire night unfreezing him and nursing him back to health; this causes Charizard to remember everything Ash did for it, beginning when Ash saved its life when its original trainer abused and abandoned it. With that, Charizard realizes how badly it has treated Ash, and by morning, it regains its loyalty and respect for him.
