This will lead into the hero responding with the Patrick Stewart Speech, in which he may concede that humans are weak (at least for the moment), but there is much that is noble about humanity as well. He notes that they have much potential, and he admires humans' capacity for [[PowerOfLove love]] / [[PowerOfFriendship friendship]] / [[AFriendInNeed loyalty]] / [[HeroicSpirit courage]] / [[{{Determinator}} persistence]] / whatever virtue it is the writers want to {{Aesop}}. If you hear the sentences "There is much that we could learn from them," or "We were NotSoDifferent, once," you're likely in the midst of a Patrick Stewart Speech.

When done well, can give the viewer a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming sense of pride]]. When done poorly, comes off as [[{{Anvilicious}} overly preachy]], [[FauxlosophicNarration pretentious]] or even [[{{Narm}} ridiculous]].

* In a subversion, the FinalBoss of ''{{Persona 3}}'' lists all the ways humanity is so great [[BossBanter as you fight him]]. Eventually, he sums up by saying that it none of it matters, because [[NietzscheWannabe everything's going to die anyway.]] Then he TurnsRed.

* In the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries'', [[spoiler: Gallantmon Crimson Mode uses this trope combined with TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and ThePowerOfLove to lay an [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome epic]] [[BreakThemByTalking verbal smackdown]] on Daemon, whilst simultaneously [[CurbstompBattle beating the everloving crap out of him]]]].

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' lets the player character deliver one of these, using the dialogue system to pick each stirring theme on the fly. It's up to the player if they end up giving a straight example or subverting the hell out of it.
** [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 The sequel's]] last level has you keeping the hopes of your teammates up before the final battle by once again allowing you to use the dialogue trees to create your own speech. Twice!

* ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic II'' had a similar example, where you could give a speech to some Dantooine troops before a battle. (although you could only choose 3 pre-made speeches, one good, one neutral, and one subversion meant to demoralize the troops rather than rally them). Some GameplayAndStoryIntegration occurs here, as the speech you choose actually influences how many troops survive the initial cutscene battle, changing the number of troops on hand for the LastStand (to the point where it can be a CurbStompBattle for either side).

* In ''{{EnergyBreaker}}'', the party gives one of these to the final boss just before fighting him. These do tend to occur just before final boss battles.

* Played with in ''ComicBook/SwitchbladeHoney'': the DeconstructiveParody of StarTrek featuring RayWinstone instead of Creator/PatrickStewart as Captain of a guerilla ship full of [[TheDirtyDozen criminals]] who are fighting a losing war against an alien empire totally justified in attacking Earth. His speech is not so much "Humans are good at their core" as "HumansAreBastards who deserve the consequences of their stupidity, but can we really live with ourselves if we run out on them and leave them all to die?"

* Horribly subverted in an episode of the 1985-87 CBS revival of TheTwilightZone. SufficientlyAdvancedAliens land, claim [[NeglectfulPrecursors they triggered humanity's evolution]] and [[YouHaveFailedMe threaten to wipe them out for not reaching their potential]] (mentioning their only virtue seems to be "a small talent for war"). A human diplomat delivers a Patrick Stewart Speech and buys humanity 24 hours to demonstrate why they should be spared; the governments of the world quickly put together a comprehensive world-wide agreement to stop all fighting. The next day the diplomat presents the treaty to the alien representative; he looks at it...[[MassOhCrap and laughs]]. He explains that [[HumansAreWarriors humans were placed on Earth to evolve into powerful warriors.]] Instead they've merely developed [[IronicEcho the aforementioned "small talent for war"]], and the global peace treaty proves their inherently pacifist nature. There's nothing left for the aliens to do but [[ApocalypseHow scour the planet clean]] and start over again elsewhere.

** Which is perhaps why for the X-Men movies, Patrick Stewart was a perfect fit. (The other reason why being that, despite the character having been created when Stewart was only 23 years old, JackKirby drew Xavier at the time looking ''almost exactly'' like the Patrick Stewart of today.)
