* The hokiness and lack of believability in AfterSchoolSpecial episodes can sometimes be due to an excessive faith in this tactic. Particularly notable is one video against sexual harassment in schools where a group of boys ogling girls are stopped by another boy shouting "This school has rules!"

[[{{Anticlimax}} The villain concedes]]. He powers down the machine and turns himself in. Battle over. Everyone lives HappilyEverAfter. If done well, it may establish the speaker as someone with greater authority than other characters (i.e., a parent, teacher, police officer), or that there are hidden factors only the character can indicate to makes the villain quit, or simply that the villain [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath still has enough of a conscience]] [[ShamingTheMob to be shamed into doing the right thing]]. However, if handled poorly (which is usually the case) the viewer may left thinking, "[[WorstWhateverEver Worst!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Anti-Climax! Ever!]]"

* Discussed and averted in ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' as the fairies are trying to find a way to stop Maleficent from making good on her curse on Aurora. [[WideEyedIdealist Fauna]] suggests that they try reason with her. The others quickly dismiss the idea and it's never brought up again.

* In the first season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', there wasn't any actual violence in the show. Everyone had their powers, but there was no beating people up. To top it off, every villain [[WellIntentionedExtremist had good intentions]]. This being said, you would see a scene where Superman would throw the giant metal gate to the villain's lair completely aside, but then he would talk to the villain of the week and convince him to try a different, less-villainous solution. In those few cases where it wasn't a well-intentioned extremist, they just dismantled the plan and left, but not before giving the villain a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Note that this was only true in the first season. After that, most baddies were {{Card Carrying Villain}}s.]] The Legion of Doom wouldn't have known a good intention if it bit them in the shin.

It's the moment of truth. The villain, cackling, stands before his DoomsdayDevice}}. His finger hovers unsteadily over the BigRedButton, and you ''know'' he's enough of an [[ForTheEvulz asshole]] to push it. All hope seems lost... but then, the hero [[BigDamnHeroes kicks open the double doors]] and bursts into the room. He looks at the villain straight in the eye, points his index finger at him, and says:

* In one episode of ''Series/TheMiddle,'' the Glossner siblings sneak into the house. After Sue and Brick try several tricks to get them out, which [[FinaglesLaw backfire hilariously]], Sue asks Derrick Glossner to leave and take the others with him. He does so [[spoiler:because he has a crush on her]].

* A very good example in ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', this is one of the options you have to stop the {{Big Bad}}. Though to do this your character must be intelligent enough, persuasive enough and they must have experienced a certain situation to use it as an argument against the enemy.

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnpTcrtsN3U Dora the Explorer: The Search for the Infinity Orb,]]'' used as the money line at the end. (Unfortunately, this isn't real, it's just a fake trailer, albeit a really well done one, with Creator/ArielWinter as WesternAnimation/{{Dora|TheExplorer}}.)

* Done in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' when a Godzilla-like monster rampages in Townsville. Blossom believes in strategy to take it down while Buttercup believes in brute force. Both tactics fail and Bubbles, getting fed up with her sisters' bickering, just flies to the monster and politely asks it to stop. ''It works'' (Though more than likely the monster was getting tired of Blossom's and Buttercup's arguing as well.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Peter watches ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'' and states that if he were {{Jesus}}, he wouldn't have taken the Romans' cruel treatment so lightly. Cut to Peter's imagination, wherein he, as Jesus, orders a Roman sentry to stop whipping him by standing up and yelling, "No, no! Stop it, stop it!" in a stern, parental voice.
