* Music/GiIvaSunner is a collaborative Website/YouTube channel that presents "high quality rips" of video game music that are actually BaitAndSwitch remixes (or other jokes), ostensibly ran by a single person who refutes any claims that his music is anything but ordinary. However, after an incident where a video that [[MoodWhiplash abruptly delved into genuinely terrifying subject matter]] was uploaded without consent from the rest of the group, one person dropped {{kayfabe}} entirely to apologize.

* ''Webcomic/TheBedfellows'': The one time Fatigue actually stands up for himself is in the strip "Board Meeting," when he calls out his bosses for doing nothing but patting themselves on the back (and [[ADateWithRosiePalms other places]]) for their good work rather than make it even better.

** Towards the end of ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'', when Spock's body is brought to Vulcan, his father Sarek asks High Priestess T'Lar for the Fal-Tor-Pan ritual to reunite Spock's katra with his body. T'Lar asks "Is this logical?" about Sarek's motives, to which he replies "My logic is uncertain where my son is concerned.", which starkly contrasts with his fervent devotion to Vulcan logic.

* Most of ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' is HamToHamCombat between Kirk and Khan, each trying to outmaneuver the other into certain defeat amid shouting matches and grand gestures. It's Kirk's LittleNo that stands out.
* ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'':
** A small, but powerful moment. After apparently firing on a Klingon battlecruiser carrying the Klingon Chancellor on a diplomatic mission, the battlecruiser recovers, rights itself, and prepares to retaliate on the unshielded ''Enterprise''. Kirk watches this for a full ten seconds in silent, slacked-jawed horror. He doesn't raise shields, or order evasive maneuvers, or any of the other things that fans expect him to do; he just ''watches''... and then he surrenders. This is the first time in the history of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' that [[TheCaptain Kirk]] is ever seen to falter in the command chair, and it's terrifying.
** Spock, the paragon of emotionless logic and reason, very ''angrily'' smacks a phaser from the hand of [[spoiler:his protegé, Valeris]], who had just been exposed as a conspirator in Gorkon's assassination. He later uses the Vulcan Mind Meld to try and pry the identities and plans of the conspirators, which ends up becoming, based on the reaction of the receiving party, dangerously close to MindRape.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} 3: Web of Shadows'': Matau, {{Jerkass}} PluckyComicRelief whose bickering drove team-leader Vakama to a FaceHeelTurn, gives a serious IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight speech to try to win him back, even dropping the [[WeWillUseWikiWordsInTheFuture Chutespeek slang]] he always talks in.

** Another example would be when Jesus curses the fig tree, causing it to wither and die. This is the only time that He is shown to use His gifts/talents/powers in a way that does not cause life and healing for the recipient (certain Apocrypha notwithstanding).

Doubles as a moment of OhCrap, because as God he could have used this power at ''any time to destroy anyone.'' Let that sink in...

* During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump, who had otherwise behaved very belligerently during the campaign and even advocated racism against Mexicans and Muslims, [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/marty-rudoy/donald-trump-appearing-sa_b_9755432.html went out of his way to speak for LGBT rights]]. Either a certain law in a certain Southern state was just too much for him, or he wasn't doing as well as he had hoped, never mind his big victory in New York just days before.
