* In the ''SavedByTheBell'' precursor show, ''Good Morning, Miss Bliss'', one episode features Zack trying to join a club of popular jerks called the Rigmas. They tell him to start bullying his friends as part of his initiation. The biggest Kick the Morality Pet moment comes when he yells at Screech "Why would I want to be seen with a nothing like you?!" Thankfully, Zack later realized the error of his ways, and his friends forgave him. They together spend the last few minutes of the episode remarking on how stupid people often act in order to fit in with various groups. The episode ends with Zack symbolically dumping the bullies club membership jacket in the garbage while his friends give him the thumbs up.

Compare VillainousBSOD. Also, some may be too far gone for this trope to pull them back to their senses, which will result in either an IgnoredEpiphany or the character [[NeverMyFault displacing the guilt onto someone else]]. See also MinorInsultMeltdown and MomentOfWeakness. Not to be confused with [[TheDogBitesBack kicking a dog that was too dangerous to kick]], or [[KickTheSonOfABitch kicking the son of a bitch.]]

* Happens to Agnes in ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' (at least in the novels), when Saito, Louise and everyone is fleeing the country to save Tabatha who is about to meet a FateWorseThanDeath at the hands of her uncle, the King of Galia. Anies had orders to only arrest the group and no intention of harming them, but as soon as she sees her lifelong nemesis [[spoiler: Colbert]] responsible for her DoomedHometown, whom she thought was dead, she [[UnstoppableRage snaps and opens fire]]. The shock from the realization [[WhatHaveIDone she nearly killed Saito in the process]], whom she trained and considered as a friend, has her realize that [[EpiphanyTherapy even if she killed her nemesis, other people would hate her in turn, so hatred and revenge are meaningless and that someone has to take it on himself to end the hatred here and now.]] She didn't forgive him, but is at least able, now, to look at his face without feeling murderous urges.
** Or at the very least, not act on them.

* [[spoiler: Subverted]] in ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}''. Everyone assumes that Izaya did this to Shinra in middle school for no reason whatsoever. [[spoiler: Turns out, he told Shinra to tell [[SilentScapegoat everyone that he stabbed him]] so he can use this opportunity to ruin Nakura who even dare hurt his only friend. Naturally, it's implied that Izaya also did this so no one will find that how close he is with Shinra.]]

He was dangerously close to joining with Grindelwald and becoming a BigBad when his sister was accidently killed during an argument. At that point he came to his senses and instead became the BigGood that he is known as.

Added DiffLines:

* This is key to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' Series 9 finale "Hell Bent", in which the Doctor temporarily becomes a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds in the wake of [[spoiler: Clara Oswald's death, which leaves him without a Morality Chain]] and then solitary imprisonment and torture by his enemies. In hopes of [[spoiler: saving Clara's life]], he risks destroying the entire universe by creating a RealityBreakingParadox, and most of those trying to stop him have NoSympathy for what he went through so it would seem no one can bring him around; the one exception is [[spoiler: Clara herself]] but since that's the whole reason he's going to extremes...But then he [[spoiler: tries to erase her memories of him with the intent of returning her to Earth]]. The objection to this is enough to make him realize he's invoked this trope and he returns to his best self, even accepting [[spoiler: Mind Rape]] to excise the emotional cancer that made him so selfish.

* In ''[[SecretSix Villains United]]'', Cheshire was blackmailed into joining the Secret Six with threats that a bomb was implanted in the back of her daughter's head. By the end of the miniseries Cheshire conceived a replacement child via seducing Catman. Neither Lian or her father Roy ever learned about this, which allowed Cheshire to continue her emotional manipulation of Roy long after Lian's death.

When she wakes up, she realizes that she's grown an unhealthy attachment to the boy, and resolves to let him grow up on his own.
