* In the ''{{Duckman}}'' episode "Vuuck, as in Duck", Duckman gives a speech to his women's baseball team that parodies the famous Knute Rockne "Win One for the Gipper" speech, and culminates in "... or I swear I'll go beat that legless bastard."

* Who can forget Sergeant Johnson from the Franchise/{{Halo}} games?

* In Machinima/TheCodex, one of the early Halo 2 machinimas, there was a ''stunningly'' good one of these. Massive bonus points for overlaying ''two'' such speeches, by the (sympathetic) opposing commanders.

** And making it a true CrowningMomentOfAwesome is the response from Pip's men:



*** ''[[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming It]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome works.]]]]''

to:

*** ''[[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming It]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It works.]]]]'']]''



* A villainous example by Seiji in the [[FistOfTheNorthStar Shin Hokuto no Ken]] [=OAVs=]. His speech regarding the madness of living and of combat is so [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome godawful awesome it turns his milquetoast mercenaries who were about to break into crazed supersoldiers.]] He's like Evil Kamina or something. (And the milquetoastiest of them all, Chess, is instantly granted several hundred levels in badass by the speech alone, suddenly becoming as effective in combat as his master.) It turns the entire battle against the religious fanatics completely on its head. One wonders the kinds of [[EarthShatteringKaboom world shaking power]] it would have upon being used on people who were empowered in some fashion, or already at sociopath level. (And make no mistake that's what he sees himself as too.)

** A rather husky pirate gives one to the Straw Hat pirates in ''OnePiece'' after Luffy and Zoro let themselves be beaten up by some other pirates berating their ideals. The pirate assures them that dreams will never die no matter what others say or do, and aren't worth fretting over. It's a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, until you find out that pirate was ''Blackbeard''.

* In ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead Teresa]]]] gives one of these to an [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Awakened]] and partially [[YouWillBeAssimilated Assimilated]]-by-the-[[BigBad Big Bad]] [[TragicMonster Cassandra]], with shades of DareToBeBadass. Beyond goading Cassandra into [[HeroicWillpower summoning the willpower]] to break away from the BigBad, it's [[AwesomeMoments actually enough]] to reawaken her ''human'' side to face [[spoiler:Teresa]] in battle so that Cassandra can [[DyingAsYourself die as a human]] rather than a monster.

* ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' contains an [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome absolutely epic]] speech from the Count himself. Though the context is wrong for this trope, the content is certainly worthy of a particularly good one. Plus, after the [[ItWasHisSled discovery]] that Dracula used to be a human lord who was also a great general, one can very easily imagine him giving a true Rousing Speech that could have said many of the same things.

* In ''GearsOfWar 2'', Chairman Prescott launches into [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome one of the most badass speeches ever]] as he sends the gears on an offensive against the Locust. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0Vh0Qvbm0Y See for yourself]].

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Hawke gives an inspiring speech to his/her compatriots prior to the final battle. Silly!Hawke's memorable subversion includes the line [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "I can fight harder scared than they can angry!"]]

--> Elan: They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom! Unless...Unless they kill us and animate our corpses as zombies to fight for them. Then I suppose they've taken our lives and our freedom. ([[BeatPanel Awkward pause]])

--> Soldier: You suck!
