* In ''Film/AceInTheHole'', Tatum, an unethical reporter, forces the crew rescuing a trapped man in a cave to use a slower rescue technique of drilling through the mountain, which will take a week, rather than entering via the side, which will take less than a day -- all in order to increase the dramatic tension and sell more newspapers. Once he realizes that this puts the crew in danger of reaching the man too late to save him, he orders them to use the original, faster technique [[spoiler: but it turns out that they no longer can, because the drilling has weakened the mountain's structural integrity too much, and the man dies. To further twist the knife, Tatum then attempts to confess his role in the death, but dies before getting the chance.]]

*** 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".]]
