Often the result if the protagonist becomes an UnwittingPawn. Sometimes combined with HeroicBSOD; common with VillainousBSOD. Can be a self-inflicted WhatTheHellHero. Contrast IDidWhatIHadToDo, BeAllMySinsRemembered, and IRegretNothing. Compare ItsAllMyFault, HeelRealization and KickTheMoralityPet. See also OutDamnedSpot, BeingEvilSucks, NiceJobBreakingItHero, and SympatheticMurderBackstory. May be the result of an all too successful PygmalionPlot to TeachHimAnger. When a work tries to deliberately invoke this as an audience reaction, that's YouBastard (whether it's successful or not).

Added DiffLines:
[[folder:Professional Wrestling]] * Instead of celebrating his success in turning the company around financially Wrestling/TheGreatMuta resigned from Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling in disgrace after Super Hate was beat so badly in an altercation with Taru it resulted in him having a stroke. That's not an example of this but his reaction to All Japan's buyer Speed Partners IT proceeding to fire his friend and run the business even further into the ground than while turning the rest of the puroresu promotions against AJPW was, as Muta tried to buy back his company shares and resume his position to no avail. On the up side for him, this caused several All Japan wrestlers to resign in loyalty to Muta and provided Wrestle-1 with a lot of publicity that attracted many fans looking for more of his "Puroresu Love" brand.[[/folder]]

Sometimes followed by MustMakeAmends, other times by an IgnoredEpiphany. IgnoredEpiphany. This trope is almost always the cause of [[TheAtoner The Atoner's]] HeelFaceTurn with the memory used as a constant reminder of why they must follow the path of atonement.

** Corax, the Raven Guard Primarch, went through a catastrophic moment like this. After the Isstvan drop site massacre, most of his legion was decimated, so he ordered some questionable methods to rebuild the legion. His orders left a lot of the recruits as mutated monstrosities. He personally {{Mercy Kill}}ed them, locked himself away for an entire year praying for their souls and his, and in the end, he took his ship and flew it straight into the Eye of Terror, his last words being simply "[[ShoutOut never more]]".
