* After the success of PeterBenchley's novel ''{{Literature/Jaws}}'' and the [[{{Film/Jaws}} movie]] based on it, sharks were slaughtered en masse out of misguided fear that they actively hunted people. This panic--dubbed [[http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2010-10-31/news/fl-endangered-sharks-20101030_1_nurse-shark-bull-shark-tiger-sharks "the Jaws effect"]]--ended up driving a third of all shark species to the brink of extinction. Benchley came to regret the role he'd played in this, eventually [[http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2002/06/0606_shark5.html becoming a conservationist]] and dedicating the rest of his life to trying to teach people that sharks are not the monsters he had portrayed them as.

* In the ''{{Trigun}}'' manga, part of TheReveal in the flashback arc is that Rem was complicit in [[spoiler: the [[StrappedToAnOperatingTable testing]] to [[TheyWouldCutYouUp destruction]] of Tesla, the girl [[ArtificialHuman born from the bulbs]] before Vash and Knives were.]] Her mothering of the twins is an attempt to make amends for not doing anything to save Tesla. When they are found out by another researcher, he turns out to feel the same way.

* The Nameless One from ''PlanescapeTorment''. The entire point of him seeking out Ravel Puzzlewell in order to [[spoiler:sever his body from his mortality -- thus making him immortal and accidentally causing his amnesia --]] is that he knew he [[spoiler:would never live long enough to make up for all of the crimes he had committed before he became good]]. It didn't work out too well.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' mocks this trope in the second season. [[UpperClassTwit Iok Kujan]]'s actions cause a Mobile Armor -- a massive, powerful KillerRobot -- to be re-activated, and his subordinates [[GoThroughMe sacrifice themselves]] to ensure his survival. When [[ChildSoldiers Julietta Juris]] finds Iok, he's become convinced that he has to destroy the Mobile Armor personally or else he won't be able to face his men in the afterlife (Julietta's reaction is stunned disbelief). Not only is this stupid (because his weapons can't even scratch the Mobile Armor's paint) and not only does it risk turning his mens' deaths into a SenselessSacrifice, but Iok's actions ruin Tekkadan's plans to take down the monster, allowing it to reach and destroy an entire farming village, killing everyone there.
