** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': Zelda started off rather abrupt with Link when the latter was able to wield the Master Sword while she was unable to unlock her RoyaltySuperPower, making him a living reminder of her own failure to fulfill her destiny. At one point, when she is unable to open one of the Sheikah Shrines (with it and the other ancient Sheikah technology being things [[AdventurerArchaeologist she is very interested in studying]]) and realizes it is intended to only open for the Sword's wielder, she angrily tells him to get lost despite him being ordered by the King to guard her. Her diary entry right after this says that he was visibly confused by this outburst, which made her feel bad afterward. Then, when Zelda is attacked by Yiga Clan assassins, Link selflessly fights them off in her defense, which finally makes her realize how pointlessly mean she had been to him. She soon apologizes and starts opening up to him, whereupon she finds out he has similar insecurities to her's.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'': Early on in the game, when Ilia discovers a wound on Epona's leg, she furiously chews Link out, believing that he had been pushing Epona too hard and had injured her jumping over fences. She gets hit with this when Colin explains to her that the reason Epona had been injured is because Link had taken her into the forest to save Talo from monsters; though Ilia ''did'' know of that, she didn't know the full story.

** In the April Fools Day episode, Spongebob keeps pulling silly and (to Squidward) annoying pranks on everyone (such as not putting ice in a customer's drink, which Spongebob thinks is hilarious), Squidward then sets up an elaborate, physically painful, and rather cruel prank on Spongebob that causes the latter to leave the Krusty Krab in tears. After all the customers call Squidward out on this and leave, Squidward looks around and seems the damage his "harmless" prank did to the Krusty Krab and [=SpongeBob=] and realizes he went too far.

* 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 Franchise/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.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': At one point, Makoto Niijima has a discussion with her elder sister Sae about the morality of the [[AntiHeroTeam Phantom Thieves of Hearts]], during which Makoto innocently comments that she believes their [[DisappearedDad late father]] would have supported them. Sae has a rather low opinion of their father and his ideals, especially since said ideals led to him being killed in action, and hearing Makoto say that causes her to lose her temper and verbally attack her younger sister, going so far as to flat-out tell Makoto to her face that she's "a burden in my existence." As soon as Makoto breaks down in tears, Sae gets hit with this and tries to apologize.
