Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/SummerWars'', guest Kenji is [[spoiler: framed]] of having caused plenty of chaos by corrupting OZ. The entire family instantly turns on him and he gets arrested on the spot. He politely bows to them ''in handcuffs'' and thanks them for having allowed him to experience a real family. Everyone just freezes with visible awkwardness and shame for a moment.

* An odd variation occurs in the first book of Creator/TerryGoodkind's ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series, the hero attempts to shame a mob who are out to BurnTheWitch - literally, as their target is TheMentor of the series, who happens to be a wizard. His speech fails to convince anyone. It's followed up by the mysterious woman openly threatening them, but not knowing what she is, they aren't impressed. Instead, TheObiWan manages to ''scare'' the mob into backing down, by threatening them with the magic powers they are going to burn him for having. As he says to the others, "Too cold *points at Richard* , too hot *points at Kahlan* , just right *points at himself* ."

* Kotetsu from ''TigerAndBunny'' tries to call out Sternbild's government for twiddling their fingers while [[spoiler:the terrorist group Ouroboros is launching a city-wide attack]]. As it turns out, he's not very good at this impromptu monologue thing.

* Attempted by Main/Yeats during the riots over Seán O'Casey's play ''Theatre/ThePloughAndTheStars''. However, the political makeup of the audience, Yeats' close ties to the aristocracy, and his generally condescending tone (famously declaring "You have disgraced yourselves again", in reference to the earlier riots over Synge's ''Theatre/ThePlayboyOfTheWesternWorld'') meant that he ended up making things worse.

to:

* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'': Subverted. This fails miserably when Purity and other "alien lovers" are about to be executed by a mob of Torquemada's followers and she takes a moral stand.
-->'''Purity:''' Why are you all so evil? Don't you think it is wrong to kill aliens just because they're not the same as you?
-->'''Terminators:''' [in unison] '''''No.'''''

* One chapter of Creator/JanetKagan's ''Mirabile'' deals with mysterious forest fires, and at one point the townsfolk want to leave a man they think has been setting the fires to die in them. Susan puts herself between the mob and the man and tells them off, personally calling out a couple she thinks should know better. She doesn't stop them, but she does hold them long enough for Annie to get there and break things up with force of personality and a "persuader" full of rock salt.
