In ''Fanfic/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', Equestrian Lieutenant Fighting Fit once hesitated to investigate Junebug's disappearance and failed to stop a changeling from taking her place and [[MindRape mind-raping]] her mother. Two years later, he ropes UN investigator Edith into a search party for the real Junebug, obviously trying to make amends for his failures.

* Adolfo Scilingo. A pilot during the years of the [[UsefulNotes/NationalReorganizationProcess Argentine military dictatorship]], Scilingo's job was to dump the tranquilised (but still living) victims of the dictatorship out of a plane and into the ocean, all because they were merely suspected of being communist. Tortured by [[ShellShockedVeteran PTSD]] and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone guilt]], Scilingo eventually became the first soldier to break silence, leading to the arrests of many low-level participants (the leaders had already been convicted). Believing that nothing he does will ever be enough, Scilingo went so far as to deliberatly go to Spain to testify in the war crimes trials, ''knowing'' he would be arrested by the Spanish government, and convinced that he needed to be.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'':
** How the heroes' HeelFaceBrainwashing on corrupt adults works: they lose the twisted desires that caused them to abuse others, but still remember what they've done, driving them to confess to their crimes and try to do everything they possibly can to repent.
** Various members of your party also cite past failures as their reason for joining your HeelFaceBrainwashing scheme: Ryuji was previously unable to protect other students from being abused by the gym teacher who abused him, Ann felt complicit for not standing up to the physical and sexual abuse that drove her best friend to attempt suicide, Haru feels responsible for letting her father take advantage of others to increase his own wealth, and Makoto feels responsible for all the fellow students she couldn't stop from being abused or blackmailed by various adults in her time as StudentCouncilPresident.

* Masai Kitano was the second-in-command of the Imperial Japanese Army's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_731 Unit 731]], which was infamous for completely amoral human experimentation, most famously its human vivisections without anesthesia, pressure chambers, frostbite experimentation and bombing villages with anthrax. Kitano specialized in frostbite experiments, heading a series of experiments where he had prisoner's limbs frozen and broken off. After he received full pardon from UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur in exchange for all their research and some legitimately useful data gained, Kitano went on to found what today is one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in Japan, the Green Cross corporation. In a Yomiuri Shimbun interview in the 1970s, during his last years, Kitano said he helped create the company specifically because he wanted to atone for the horrific experiments he and his unit had done, and that saving lives was the only thing he believed could equal taking them. Ironically, Kitano's corporation was later hit by a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIV-tainted_blood_scandal_(Japan) massive scandal]] in the 1980s involving contaminated artificial blood products.
