* In ''{{Phoenix}}: Karma'', the artisan Akanemaru first meets Gao as a fugitive and offers him his fire; Gao, disfigured from birth, rewards Akanemaru for his kindness by maiming him out of spite. By the end of the story, Gao has redeemed himself and become a master artisan in his own right, while Akanemaru has let his success get to his head and become a cold, heartless bastard: when Gao bests him in a competition, Akanemaru reveals Gao's sordid past, resulting in him losing his one good arm.

* The modern Canmore siblings in ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles]]''. Initially, Jason and Robyn were determined to wipe out the gargoyle species completely, while Jon was only interested in fighting Demona in particular and was even willing to consider allying with the Manhattan Clan against her. By the end of ''Hunter's Moon,'' Jason and Robyn realized that their vendetta against all gargoyles had done more harm than good, but Jon had decided by then that all gargoyles were evil.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', Deedee crushes a bunch of ants, because she thinks they're filthy. Dexter, who find ants interesting, shrinks them both down to ant size so Deedee can get a better idea of their society. After some adventures, they return to normal size, at which point Deedee happily thanks Dexter for showing her just how cool ants really are - while Dexter is squashing them.

* ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' put the player in charge of a globally-supported XCOM, backed and funded by a coalition of nations across the world, fighting against a secretive and subversive alien threat. The upcoming sequel, ''VideoGame/XCOM2'', is going to be set in an AlternateTimeline where all human resistance including XCOM was annihilated by the invading aliens, who consequently [[VichyEarth put the earth under Advent, a sinister pro-alien government]] - XCOM lives on as an underground movement painted as traitors and terrorists by Advent propaganda, and leading the fightback. This extends to gameplay - in the original, your troops had to seek out and destroy alien forces hidden on the map, whereas in the sequel, it's ''your'' XCOM troops who are hidden and the aliens enemies are the ones standing in plain sight, just begging to be ambushed.

* One episode of ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia revolves around the gang trying to fix the gun problem. Dennis and Dee think that guns should be more regulated, while Mac and Charlie believe the only way to fight bad guys with guns is with more guns. By episode's end, Dennis and Dee want more guns on the streets and Mac and Charlie think they should be banned. They lament that they hadn't gotten together halfway through, because they could have worked together.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' has the episode "Tigger Got Your Tail," where Tigger leads Pooh and Piglet on a hunt for invisible "Nobodies" who have been stealing things. Rabbit dismisses this as nonsense, claiming "There's a reasonable explanation for everything"...until his vegetables starts disappearing. At the end, when everything is recovered (crows were stealing the vegetables, Piglet's painting had blown away, and Tigger had just lost his voice), Pooh tells Rabbit that he was right...but poor Rabbit is so frazzled that he's still babbling about "Nobodies."

* The SCPFoundation {{verse}} is rife with these, both within individual SCP's and tales and in the broader lore, but one of the most shining examples is the Church of the Broken God. Once the [=CotBG=] was seen as a zealous cult of {{Machine Worship}}ers and the Foundation as the only group preventing them from initiating an apocalypse out of blind adherence to doctrine. Several years of plot development and lore exploration later, however, and there is a growing possibility that the Foundation's blind adherence to the doctrine of contain first, dissect and ask questions later, has been crippling the keepers of humanity's only weapon against one of the greatest threats the foundation has ever known.
