* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'':
** After Third Impact Shinji spends his whole life trying to atone for abandoning Asuka and getting the whole mankind killed.
** Misato strives to atone for effectively abandoning Shinji and Asuka right when they needed her, in spite of her being the only person who cared for them.
--->'''Misato:''' It might surprise you to learn I agree with you. Everything you said is true. I did a terrible job with the both of you, and there's no excuse for it. Nothing about the circumstances changes what happened to you. It was criminal, and it was wrong, and I'll regret it until the day I die. But even so, you have to think about your situation here: you aren't equipped to live on your own, and neither is Shinji. You both need a lot of help and support, and there aren't exactly a lot of candidates banging on the door for the job. For better or worse I'm the closest thing to family either of you has.\\
'''Asuka:''' (shaking her head) \\
'''Misato:''' And I do care about you. I can't undo any of the things that have happened to you, but I can do my best to look out for you in the future. And I want to do that.\\
'''Asuka:''' No you don't. The only reason you're bothering at all is because of him.\\
'''Misato:''' That isn't true. But even if it was, does it really matter? Either way --\\
'''Asuka:''' Of course it matters!\\
'''Misato:''' I see. I've really misjudged you, haven't I? All this time, I thought your only interest was in survival. Shinji, me, even Kaji were just means to that end. But it wasn't like that at all, was it? No, of course not. It's so obvious, given what happened with your mom. I guess I never really made the connection because of everything else that was going on.\\
'''Asuka:''' \\
'''Misato:''' Alright then. I think I can understand your feelings now. And I can't really blame you; I'd be pretty skeptical myself if I was in your position. So that means I'll just have to prove it, right? But you'll have to give me the chance to do that, Asuka. I can't force you to accept me. All I can do is do my best to earn you trust. And that starts right now.



* In the ''{{Literature/Worm}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10377231/1/Security Security!]]'', there are quite a few of these, some facilitated by the [[SelfInsertFic self-insert protagonist]].

* Masaji Kitano, the second-in-command of the Imperial Japanese Army's Unit 731 (infamous for its completely amoral human experimentation, most famously its human vivisections, pressure chambers and bombing villages with anthrax), after he received full pardon from UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur in exchange for all their research gained, 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 created 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.
