* Done [[WorldOfFunnyAnimals literally]] in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', when idealistic new bunny police officer Judy Hopps is given a sharp dressing down by several characters regarding her [[NaiveNewcomer naive expectations]] of how she'll be able to do real police work and make a difference in the world, despite being the TokenMinority in a workplace filled with [[FantasticRacism unspoken prejudice]]. Even her parents, while supportive of her goals, tell her not to believe in her dreams too much.

** Inverted from the perspectives of Jaime and Tyrion. Both are cynical pragmatists that only find meaning in their lives when they reconnect with honorable agendas.

* This is Kyosuke Munakata's feelings towards Makoto Naegi in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''. He feels that Makoto's methods of dealing with despair are too soft, and that the only way to defeat despair is to eradicate it completely.

* In Creator/DCComics, Franchise/{{Superman}} once battled the Elite (a pastiche of ComicBook/TheAuthority), a pack of super-[[AntiHero anti-heroes]] who routinely killed. It was the Elite's point-of-view that Superman's boy-scout kid-gloves morality was a weakness, and that defeating evil required being just as bad. During their final face-off, Superman appeared to be going all-out, slaughtering his way through the Elite on live TV. But it was a fake-out -- he was merely knocking them out in creative ways, trying to illustrate how terrifying superpowered killers can be. Manchester Black, the leader of the Elite, maintained that Superman's idealism was nothing but a facade until his dying day. (When Black realized that Superman ''honestly and sincerely believed and lived up to his ideals'', [[EvilCannotComprehendGood it was more than Black could take]] and committed suicide.)

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl''. ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' is a cynical jerkass who thinks the Justice Society are gods looking down on the little people and ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' is clueless when she tells that they and ''Comicbook/LexLuthor'' are her surrogate family. When [[spoiler:it's revealed that Luthor is a lying, murderous bastard]] it looks like Batgirl has been proved right, but then she talks Supergirl out of killing him because she's a hero and a symbol of Hope and shouldn't drop to his level.

* Happened to [[Franchise/MassEffect Garrus]] in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/series/174092 Parable]]'' series. After the two years on Omega and then repeatedly sees how the world treats his wife Jane despite her sacrifices, by the end of the Reaper war, he has completely changed from the idealistic Turian at the beginning of the series to a jaded man that only looks out for his family and is perfectly fine with abandoning people in need if they affect his loved ones' well-being in anyway. Case in point, in [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/3433757/chapters/7526057 Part 6, ''Recrudescence'']], he gets into a fight with Kaidan when the latter uses the Normandy's fund to save a pair of mother/daughter slaves while the former needs that money to make sure the ship run smoothly for [[PapaWolf his]] [[HalfHumanHybrid twin babies]]' sake; when Kaidan askes where is the man that wanted justice for everyone, Garrus just flat-out replies that that man is dead and replaced with someone that know how the universe works.
