* 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.

* ''Anime/TheBigO'': Dan Dastun shames the military police with a speech about them following Alex Rosewater’s deranged leadership and then performs the InsigniaRipOffRitual.

* In ''[[FanFic/TheNuptialverse Direction]]'', when [[DiscOneFinalBoss Trixie]] is captured, an angry mob of Ponyville citizens tries to lynch her for the crimes committed while under the influence of the Alicorn Amulet. Rarity, however, puts herself between them, and asks the mob if any of them think that this is what Twilight (who's currently dealing with this universe's version of ''Equestria Girls'') would want. This gets the crowd to stop and think, and then they all slowly leave.

* Andy does this a couple times to the citizens of Mayberry in ''TheAndyGriffithShow''. Seeing as this is [[{{Arcadia}} Mayberry]] we're talking about, the "danger" any mob poses to a target is never more serious than humiliating or making someone feel bad about themselves, though.
