** As Shrek leads Donkey through a swamp, Donkey complains about its miserable state and wonders aloud who would be crazy enough to live there. Shrek replies that this is actually his home. Donkey [[VerbalBackspace immediately showers the swamp with compliments]] that seem more like [[DamnedByFaintPraise damning with faint praise]] than anything else

** In another episode, Dr. Cox, a HollywoodAtheist, becomes determined to convince Nurse Roberts, a devout Christian, that everything is a coincidence. When he inevitably pushes things way too far, Nurse Roberts gives him an epic ShutUpHannibal, telling him that she needs there to be a God and a bigger reason behind the things that happen to patients because it helps her cope with the horrors of watching people die around the hospital every day. Cox softly offers an apology and stops pushing the issue.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': In "The Late Phillip J. Fry", Fry misses a date with Leela on her birthday due to a mishap with the Professor's new time machine (which can only move forward) which strands him in the distant future, and the video birthday card he was recording for her falls out just after the time machine launches. Leela thinks he ditched her for a party that was being held the same night (and during which accident killed almost everyone) and spends decades being angry at him... at which point the video card flies out of the time machine, hits Leela in the head, and after viewing it Leela realizes she spent her entire life being mad at Fry for something that wasn't his fault.

** In the episode "What Ever Happened to [=SpongeBob=]?", ''all'' of [=SpongeBob=]'s friends get exasperated with [=SpongeBob=]'s clumsy behavior, call him "idiot boy," and bluntly tell him to get lost. They're left in tearful remorse when they discover that [=SpongeBob=] has run away as a result and do everything they can to find him and bring him home. (Well, except for Squidward)
--->'''Squidward:''' (sadly) If I knew that was the last time I'd see [=SpongeBob=]... (happily) [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk I would have slammed the door in his face even harder!]]

Added DiffLines:

* In the film version of ''Literature/{{It}}'', the now-adult members of the Losers Club hold a meeting to talk about old times and discuss their plans for taking down the eponymous creature. One of their number, Stan, is conspicuously absent, which causes the other members of the club to playfully ridicule him and berate him for being late. Soon afterwards, they get a phone call that puts an immediate end to the frivolity-- [[spoiler: Stan had committed suicide the night before.]]

** Another Shrek one is where Shrek mistakenly thinks Fiona is talking about him when she says "Big, stupid, ugly beast", he is very rude to her the following day. Donkey sets him straight later though.

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', Melodía, after acting condescendingly to all of her ladies-in-waiting, realizes that they all have HiddenDepths and are smarter than they look. She concludes gloomily that she's been a self-righteous jerkass and the most shallow girl in her clique.

* 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.

A character is lecturing another character; then somehow, either by someone else telling them the truth afterwards or the one they're lecturing breaking down or otherwise indicating that they've gone too far, the character realizes that they have been a complete {{Jerkass}}.
