** Jaime Lannister is widely reviled for killing the king he swore to protect, it being a literal backstabbing makes matter even worse and he provides the page quote. He makes it clear that his oaths were inherently contradictory, but few people pay heed to his side of the story. His refusal to go public with the depths of Aerys' madness didn't help matters much.

This is the character that has broken a oath of some sort be it [[MagicallyBindingContract magical]] or mundane and now is forever branded by his misdeed. Sometimes they see this as almost a trophy. Sometimes this is seen as a mark of shame. It almost always brands the character as a pariah until they manage to restore their lost honour.

* As TheOtherWiki says, the most commonly accepted etymology derives the word "warlock" from the Old English ''waerloga'' meaning "oathbreaker" (from ''waer'' "promise, agreement" and ''loga'' "deceiver").

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', [[AntiVillain the Wolkenritter]] are forced via SadisticChoice to break an oath they made to [[TheKidWithTheRemoteControl Hayate]]. Since they come from a Medieval European based culture, this ends up causing them a great deal of grief (especially Signum, who places the most emphasis on her honor and was the one who made the promise in the first place). Note that all the pain that it causes them is self-loathing since the rest of the cast (including Hayate) follows a modern sense of ethics and tend to be more forgiving when it comes to those sort of things.

** PlayedWith with Brienne; she swore two oaths: to keep Cat's children safe and to kill Stannis. By deciding to abandon her vigil to wait for a signal from Sansa, instead deciding to go after Stannis, she basically broke her first vow. Thankfully, she manages to uphold her first oath by rescuing Sansa from Bolton hunters shortly after her escape from Winterfell.
