a local woman comes forth dragging her kid along with her, and makes a plea for them to stop. The kid then makes a contribution:
-->'''Kid:''' ...
He looks like a ''good'' mummy...\\
'''Actor:''' ''[muffled by bandages]'' Yes! Good mummy! Good I am! I am a good mummy!\\
'''Child:''' But '''Kid:''' Of course he ''could'' be a bad one! I say we better not take any chances! String hang 'im up!!just in case!\\
'''Actor:''' ''[epic OhCrap expression]''

* Early in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky Second Chapter'', a PowderKegCrowd consisting of the supporters of Ruan's two candidates for mayor (also the governor of the whole province) are at each other's throats. Enter [[TheGadfly Olivier]], coming down the nearby river on a small boat, chastising both factions with an impromptu song about lost love followed by BishieSparkles as he delivers the moral that, "Love is eternal." Cue the near-riot breaking up out of sheer ''awkwardness'' at Olivier's sudden bizarre appearance.

* The Nameless One gets to do this at a certain point in ''PlanescapeTorment'', sort of. [[spoiler: He talks various rioters, looters and anarchists into abandoning their rather ill-timed plans and working together to reverse the city of Curst sliding into the plane of Carceri.]]

* Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar famously quelled a mutiny of his troops by addressing the rioters as "Quirites" ("Civilians"). [[OlderThanFeudalism You know what that means ...]] According to one theory, this was supposed to be a form of shaming them, as Caesar had always referred to his soldiers as his comrades or his brothers/soldiers in arms. Referring to them as Quirites (Citizens) was a rather blunt way of implying that they had already discharged themselves from his service by their mutiny. He offered to pay them their dues for the past 15 years and discharge them immediately because he claimed he did not need them. Reportedly, all the soldiers begged to be forgiven and taken back into his army.

* Appears in another ''Miraculous'' fic, ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/9277868 An Act of Protection]]''. When Ladybug and Chat Noir are mobbed by reporters after a battle and are cut off from the exit despite asking them to let them through, Ladybug is forced to push Chat into a closet to change back while she stands guard outside, sacrificing her identity to protect his. After Adrien recharges and comes out as Chat, he turns on the reporters with TranquilFury. "''How dare you''? Weíve dedicated our lives to protecting this city from Hawkmoth and you repay us by not even giving us the courtesy of keeping our civilian lives to ourselves? Why didnít you let us leave? You know we value our privacy. Itís called a secret identity for a reason. Itís there to protect our friends, family and ourselves. Youíve just given Hawkmoth an advantage over Ladybug. Those she knows in her private life could potentially become targets." While a few of the reporters apologise and claim they never intended for this reveal to happen, the majority continue to ask questions and only grudgingly leave the building when ordered.
