* In ''Fanfic/{{Wonderful}}'', [[TheHero Taylor]] used one to encourage civilians to fight [[EldritchAbomination Leviathan]]:
-->“So this… this is what I ask of you. It is a lot to take, especially in this moment. I know that you could run. I know that. This is scary and terrifying. I wouldn’t blame you for it. With the device you… might be able to escape. Maybe. What I’m asking for you, is to stay here... and fight.\\
“Fight against the monster. Fight against the flood. Fight alongside me, because I will NOT ask you to do this without putting myself in the line of fire. You will know who I am, the device will tell you. It is unfair for me to ask this. I wish this hadn’t happened, that the fight would be over and you could just go back home, I wish I could have had more time to do this PROPERLY.\\
She sounded progressively more desperate as she spoke… but when her voice came again, it was strong once more.\\
“… so I beg of you… fight with me. I cannot do this alone. We all cannot do this alone. But together, we WILL be able to drive the beast back. We WILL save everybody else in the shelter. We WILL save everybody else in the city. Together, we can be mighty. Together, we can be invincible. Together…”\\
“… We can be WONDERFUL.”

* Lydia's speech in the ''Series/{{Beetlejuice}}'' episode "The Unnatural" when an umpire is about to make play-at-the-plate ruling (which would send the loser to a virtual Hell) wasn't so much a rousing speech as it was an impassioned treatise about sportsmanship. It brings the whole stadium to tears, resulting in the game being rained out.

*In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'', Arthur Maxson gives one to all of the new Brotherhood of Steel recruits. Unfortunately, it quickly turns into a KickTheDog moment as he declares that [[GuiltFreeExterminationWar all Synths need to be killed]], and you've probably already befriended at least one synth by this point.
