** UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein, who sent a letter to UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt, co-written with Leo Szilard, that led to the establishment of the Manhattan ProjectProject.
*** Szilard as well urged the abandonment of the Project once it became clear that Germany was ''not'' developing an atomic bomb. (His fear that they were was the reason he wrote the letter to Roosevelt in the first place.)

Compare TheAtoner, who is usually making up for a whole set of bad deeds following a HeelFaceTurn or KickTheMoralityPet, whereas Must Make Amends is usually about a specific bad deed that can come from any type of tragic mistake. MyGodWhatHaveIDone is typically the lead-in to this situation, with RedemptionQuest being a sister trope. Contrast BuyThemOff and IRegretNothing.

* ''Manga/DragonBallZ'': This is Vegeta's primary reason for choosing to fight Majin Buu alone, partly because he was responsible to Majin Buu being revived in the first place and Gohan apparently being killed by the monster, and partly because he wants to make amends for Goku dying during the Cell Games since, in letting Cell absorb 18 and become Perfect, it ''was'' his fault the entire mess with Cell got so bad.

** DiZ ends up being an example. [[spoiler:When he reveals himself as Ansem the Wise to King Mickey, he recounts the deep shame he felt when he saw what his bid for revenge brought upon poor Riku, and later even tries apologizing to Roxas. He uses the name of this trope outright by saying "I must make amends to these young people".]]

** The Tenth Doctor in both parts of ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime The End of Time]]'' after an AGodAmI moment in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E16TheWatersOfMars The Waters of Mars]]'', with elements of BloodKnight.
** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E5TimeHeist Time Heist]]'', [[spoiler:the heist is a rescue mission contracted by the future dying Karabaxos for just this reason]].
** In the Series 9 finale "Hell Bent", the Doctor has become TheUnfettered and a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds desperate to [[spoiler: save Clara from her death by pulling her out of time at the last possible moment]], which threatens to destroy the universe and alienates him from [[spoiler: his own people, the Time Lords, and his confidante Ohila]]. It becomes clear that he believes he is partially to blame for the original tragedy, thinking he [[spoiler: was a bad influence on her]], and he hopes his actions now will make amends as he intends to [[spoiler: wipe her memories of him and drop her off on Earth to live a nice, safe life]]. When he has his HeelRealization, he realizes that what he wants is a TragicDream that is only making things worse, and he must give up both his unwarranted guilt and his dream for the sake of the universe. To do this, [[spoiler: either he ''or'' Clara must undergo a mind wipe of memories of the other and part for good, and he -- either by fate or by choice -- ends up affected]]. So to summarize, at story's end [[spoiler: he has no companion, his key memories of her (namely that he loved her) are gone, and after years of seeking it he probably won't be able to return to his home world for a while as he's a wanted man again]]. But he accepts this as the price that must be paid for going too far and being selfish, noting to [[spoiler: Clara, as he succumbs]], that one must "Never be cruel and never be cowardly. And if you ever are, always make amends."
