** Played straight in one episode where a father who had massacred his wife and kids, with the exception of his infant daughter who had been hidden by her older brother, gave a motive rant about how he felt suffocated and overworked by his family (Its explicitly shown that he's lying, he had a normal family life which was currently going through a rough patch due to the kids catching the flu). As he's led away, Horatio dismisses his rant as him preparing an insanity defense, "I didnt know what I was doing and I definetly didnt know it was wrong".

** Another prominent example is shown at the end of the Sabrina Gaiden sidestory. Unusually, this one was given out of ''joy'' rather than anger or frustration, since her motivation was to [[CreateYourOwnHero get someone to be brave enough to try and stand up to her.]]

* ''Series/TheExorcist'': During the penultimate episode, the demon tormenting the Rances finally explains what it really wants.
-->'''Casey''': Why do you keep hurting us? What do you even want?
-->'''[[spoiler: Pazuzu]]''': The only thing that [[FallenAngel we've]] ever wanted: that which is rightfully ours. We were His first creations. Did you know that? We were loyal and perfect in every way. And do you know what God did? God got bored. He got bored with our perfection. So He created Man, [[HumansAreFlawed mortal and ugly]], and... and then He built them a sandbox, and He filled it with tangible and sensual delights. Delights that we could never feel or taste or experience. He created paradise, and he handed it over to a [[FantasticRacism pack of primates rutting in the dirt]]. Well, this world was meant for us. [[RageAgainstTheHeavens And we're gonna take it back]].
