* Played straight, [[JustifiedTrope justified]], and used to ''incredibly'' disturbing and offensive effect in ''Gaudy Night'', the penultimate LordPeterWimsey novel and arguably the only one where the villain is ideologically motivated.

* Boss characters, (and many {{NPC}}s) from the ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' games have a tendency to do this either just before fighting Snake or with their last breath after having been fatally wounded by him. The QuirkyMiniBossSquad from the third game mostly avoided this, but [[BadassNormal The Boss]] (their leader) made up for it in spades. FanWebComic ''TheLastDaysOfFoxhound'' noticed and commented on this.

* This trope is a staple of the ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'' series' trials. In fact, if someone has confessed to a murder ''without'' making one of these rants, that person is usually [[RedHerring lying to protect]] the real culprit. (Or, as in [[spoiler:Nagito]]'s case, their initial rant was a lie but laid the narrative groundwork for a ''real'' motive rant they'd make later on, in a different trial.)
