** Even if a group doesn't have a formal membership standards system, it can have widely accepted standards what does and doesn't constitute responsible/acceptable actions. For example its not fallacious to say that "no responsible gun owner [[ArtisticLicenseGunSafety would do that,]]" because someone violating gun safety rules is by definition acting irresponsibly.

->''The correct answer to "If you're such a big fan, then in what issue of ''{{ComicBook/Aquaman}}'' did we learn the name of Aquaman's father?" is "Fuck you -- Arthur, Prince of the Sea, belongs to everyone."''

* In ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', Magneto meets with a group of teenage/young adult mutants he's looking to recruit. They all have facial tattoos, and one snidely asks Magneto "If you're so proud of being a mutant, where's your mark?" Magneto shuts here down pretty easily, however, by showing the serial number ThoseWackyNazis tattooed on him in a concentration camp, and stating that he will never allow himself to be marked again.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBFG'': The other giants essentially disown the BFG for not eating humans, though neither party does anything to patch the ties. The climax of the film makes it clear that they [[FantasticRacism don't even consider him a giant.]]

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', whenever Miranda is confronted with Cerberus's horrific acts (the experiments on Jack, the Thresher Maw attack on Akuze, the experiments you encountered in [[VideoGame/MassEffect the first game]], etc.), she will insist those weren't "real Cerberus" or rogue cells. She has a small point in the case of Jack, as we learn those scientists were going rogue about ''something'', but otherwise this is treated as her being in denial about the kinds of things Cerberus has done. [[spoiler:Part of her CharacterDevelopement is overcoming this]].

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': The deranged philosophy of the Dark Judges is that [[AllCrimesAreEqual all life is a crime]]. So in order to judge people without hypocrisy they allowed themselves to be transformed into zombies. After their whole planet had been wiped out, their leader Judge Death gathered his followers and purged all but his three closest supporters. His argument was that they were not really Dark Judges since they were too much like the living.

* The Christian film ''Christian Mingle'', as Hugo and Jake from ''The Bible Reloaded'' pointed out, incurs on this with its protagonist, who is a young woman who starts using the eponymous dating website for Christians. Despite claiming to have been raised as one, been baptized, and believing in Jesus in general, all the other characters treat her as not being a ''true'' Christian because she doesn't go to church or read Literature/TheBible very often and botching a prayer before dinner because she's not accustomed to it. It's even more baffling when the film shows that when creating a profile the dating website does have an option for saying how often one goes to church (including the option "Not at all").
