* This is the reasoning [[WordOfGod Dan Slott]] gave as to why Doc Ock was the "superior" one during his BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind with Peter Parker in ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan - Peter suffered a Moment of Weakness when he tried to stop Ock from using a device to save a girl that would end up finding him. Octavius is disgusted and uses that justification to [[spoiler:erase Peter from his mind]].

* Tiamat in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' admits to this when she tells her story to the Warrior of Light. Her brother, [[spoiler: Bahamut]], was killed by the Allagan Empire 5000 years prior. Filled with grief and rage, she consorted with the Ascians and learned how to bring her brother back to life. Said brother [[CameBackWrong came back as a bloodthirsty primal]] that rampaged across the land and was captured by the Allagans. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Realizing the horror she unleashed]], Tiamat, who was shackled in place by the Allagans, atones for her actions by keeping herself bound as punishment.

Between that and a bit of alcohol, the starts in earnest when Sukeroku blurts out that Yakumo's rakugo was old-fashioned and boring. From there things escalate into Yakumo taunting Sukeroku with plans to pass his name to Sukeroku's fellow apprentice, Kikuhiko. Sukeroku gets riled up to the point of [[spoiler:nearly attacking his master and gets him expelled]].

* ''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.
** Gohan has another when he lets his Super Saiyan 2-fueled bloodthirst get the better of him during his fight with Cell. Rather than finish Cell off, he decides to drag it out and torture the bioweapon. This leads to Cell getting desperate and self-destructing, [[spoiler: forcing Goku to do a HeroicSacrifice.]]

See MyGodWhatHaveIDone for more long-term examples and StartOfDarkness when the Moment of Weakness sends them the other way. If a rash action during such a moment leads to tragedy, see ATragedyOfImpulsiveness. Can potentially result in InsultFriendlyFire or KickTheMoralityPet. Compare InVinoVeritas, when this sort of thing can happen due to drunkenness.
