* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' novel ''Memory'' Miles covers up an assignment that was horribly botched because of health problems which he had also been keeping from his superiors. Although he's always breaking rules, up to this point it had been for the greater good; this time it was mostly selfish and he is dismissed from imperial service as a result. Later in the novel, when considering the villain, Miles notes that this could have been the point at which he did a FaceHeelTurn, but unlike the villain, he stopped himself.

* Inverted in ''{{Nichijou}}'' when Yuko throws a compliment to Mio while the two are having a fierce (read: MundaneMadeAwesome) argument, which leads to the whole thing defusing.

* In ''Franchise/StarWars [[Film/AttackOfTheClones Episode II: Attack of the Clones]],'' Anakin Skywalker was perfectly content to sneak around the Sand Peoples' camp and not start a fight up until his mother died in his arms. His rage at that moment prompted him to murder every Sand Person there. He felt guilt over it afterward, but it didn't stop his fall to the Dark Side. [[FromBadToWorse It only got worse from there]].
* In ''Film/EndOfDays'', Jericho's best friend betrays him and makes a DealWithTheDevil because "it's amazing what you'll agree to when you're on fire." Especially galling since the Devil was the one who set him on fire in the first place. Near the end he can't bring himself to betray Jericho a second time, and the Devil revokes their deal by setting him on fire again.

* ''Manga/DragonBallZ'': Gohan considers the moment when he cowered behind a rock instead of attacking Nappa back in the Vegeta arc to be this. Moments afterward, Tien dies, and he blames himself for not being strong enough to prevent it. Worse, Piccolo ''agrees'' with him and chews him out even more, nearly dismissing him. Even in the Cell arc in the anime, it's shown that he ''still'' feels guilt over this, enough for it, and his other insecurities to push him into a Super Saiyan transformation for the first time.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'s'' backstory, explained during the trek through New Home, we learn that the monsters' king, Asgore, declared war on humanity after [[spoiler:a group of violent humans led directly to his son's death]]. He made the decision in grief and anger, but by the time he realized what he had done, he had committed himself and the monsters were hopeful of eventual freedom from the underground in which they were sealed, leaving him feeling that he could not go back on his decision. This act also disgusted his wife, who left him soon after.
