* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Shinji Ikari would probably have been much better off without this tick, as it is what pisses Asuka off the most. Other than this personality difference, their backgrounds and current status would probably have resulted in some sorta relationship.
* There's also a slight variation in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', where Vegeta gives a little speech about taking care of the family and then apologizes, right before knocking out both his kid and Goten and then doing a HeroicSacrifice in an attempt to take out Buu.

* ComicBook/YTheLastMan has an interesting variation, where the apology is not over anything violent... Yorick apologizes to a girl for the two times he kissed her. Then he interrupts her confusedly asking when the second time was, with a kiss.
* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}} Family #173'', ComicBook/JimmyOlsen realizes that Superman is infected with the virus that is wreaking havoc through Kandor. He mentally says "[[ApologeticAttacker Sorry for what I'm about to do, pal]]" before knocking him out.

* In an episode of ''Series/TheATeam'', Murdock said the line, "Bless me father, for I am about to sin," before punching out a priest.

* In an episode of ''Series/TheATeam'', Murdock said the line, "Bless me father, for I am about to sin," before punching out a priest. The reason was the team had just been convicted in their trial and sentenced to death. The priest Murdock hit was the priest who was slated to give them last rites before their execution, and was one of the few people who would a) be allowed on the island prison the team were held at and b) have unsupervised access to them.

* The 2012 edition of ''Series/BigFatQuizOfTheYear'', which covered [[ILoveTheXTies the '90s]], had Jack Whitehall mention that he'd been afraid of Music/MrBlobby since he was a child. No points for guessing [[https://youtu.be/97fw8xjB5u4 who the guest was that night]], which even Creator/JimmyCarr apologized for before inviting him out.

* In ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' Seraph (the Oracle's bodyguard) pre-emptively apologizes for attacking Neo, as he needs to be certain Neo is the One.
* From ''Film/TheCowboys'', Jebediah Nightlinger is about to be killed by Asa Watts. Knowing that the BigDamnHeroes are on their way, he asks for a moment to make peace with God, then he prays aloud:
-->'''Jebediah Nightlinger:''' I regret trifling with married women. I'm thoroughly ashamed at cheating at cards. I deplore my occasional departures from the truth. Forgive me for taking your name in vain, my Saturday drunkenness, my Sunday sloth. Above all, forgive me for the men I've killed in anger...
