* The horrid impact of WorldWarI brought about a common sentiment of "never again" (which was also repeated in a sense after the [[WorldWarII second War to End all Wars]]). As history showed, [[ForegoneConclusion it did]].

* {{Magneto}}, when he's given sympathetic motivations. He's a Holocaust survivor who doesn't want mutants to face the kind of genocidal [[FantasticRacism bigotry]] he endured in his youth. Though it does kind of go against him when he has no qualms about doing that to humans.

* In ''Literature/ThisImmortal'', Diane lets slip that she used to be a pleasure girl on Taler and it wasn't a pleasant experience, which caused her hatred of all [[HumanoidAlien Vegans]] and was her motivation to join [[LaResistance Radpol's Returnist movement]].

* In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', the Founders (a race of changelings) use this as justification for running the Dominion. They tell Odo that millennia earlier, they were peaceful, but were met with brutal distrust and were hunted down. Thus, they founded the Dominion to ensure they would never be in a position of weakness ever again, breeding the remorseless Jem'Hadar to do their bidding on lesser species. However, there are subtle hints through the show that the prejudice against changelings did not start until ''after'' the Founders started their empire-building.

** The Bajorans suffered a brutal fifty year occupation at the hands of the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Cardassians]] and ex-freedom fighters like Major Kira make it quite clear they will never suffer such an indignity again. Indeed, this is what kick starts the series, as the first step to guaranteeing the Cardassians stay away is the Bajoran provisional government requesting Starfleet establish a naval presence at Bajor, so any attacks on Bajor will be an automatic act of war against the Federation.

** The Haitian revolution was originally put down under UsefulNotes/{{Napoleon}}, but after the French let their intent to re-enslave the Haitians be known, the war re-ignited and eventually led to the end of French rule.

** Strangely, the Soviet Union might count for a significant period of time. Namely, from 1945 to about 1985, when the helm was taken by Mikhail Gorbachev, a man who hadn't been actively involved in politics or the military during the Second World War. The case had been made that the Soviet Union created its nuclear arsenal, a glacis of subjugated satellite states, and maintained a cripplingly huge military because its leaders and, actually, the whole country, were severely traumatised by the massive slaughter of the German attack.

* Many nations with a recent or ancient history of being oppressed have carried this sentiment into the modern day, which results in rather thorny foreign policy. The problem is particularly severe in Africa and the Middle East where this trope often leads to violence but many other countries with reputations for being 'hard' or 'rugged' have felt this influence at some point.
** Case in point: Israel, which actually went so far as to print the words "never again" on their first ([[ImplausibleDeniability totally hypothetical]]) nuke, and generally have it as a sort of unofficial motto. This is what happens when your country is founded ''entirely'' by hundreds of thousands of [[{{Shell Shocked Veteran}} shell-shocked survivors]] of one of the most horrific genocides in human history. And add to those numbers the Mizrahi Jews who fled or were expelled from the Islamic world.
** Finland. Basically every able-bodied male Finn (and a lot of women) is trained to be a soldier.
