* ''Literature/FindersKeepers'': BigBad Morris briefly suffers from one when, after years in prison and then several weeks of staying in line to get his Parole officer off his back, is finally able to retrieve the buried trunk with the notebooks he stole years ago…only to find it empty. He recovers when he learns who took the notebooks though (or at least thinks he knows).

* Cyrus in ''PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'' has a BSOD for most of a chapter when he realizes that his grand plan to fix the world (by [[InTheirOwnImage destroying and rebuilding it]], natch) only managed to summon a pair of very angry gods whose fight will destroy everything ''without'' any hope of revival. Even near the end when he manages to get his act together, the impact of all this leaves him drained to the point where one of his officers has to help him stand.

* {{Magneto}} had a well-done example of one mixed with a WhatHaveIDone moment when he believed that he had accidentally killed Kitty Pryde (Kitty actually had just been knocked unconscious due to massive feedback between her phasing and Magneto's powers). It could well mark the beginning of a HeelFaceTurn that culminated with him some 50 issues later taking over the X-Men from Professor X.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'''s Pacifist Route, this is how the true final battle against [[spoiler:Asriel Dreemurr]] is resolved. For the entire game prior, [[spoiler:he is soulless and unable to feel any sense of empathy or love, taking the form of a sociopathic flower called Flowey. Throughout the True Pacifist route, he is orchestrating a series of events to draw every single character in the game to the same place, and once he does so, he absorbs all of their souls. This transforms him into the almighty PhysicalGod he's always wanted to be, but fortunately for you, it also causes him to start feeling love and compassion again - the collective love and compassion of six humans and an entire civilization's worth of monsters, to be exact. He tries his best to repress these feelings for as long as I can, going so far as wiping the memories of each of the main characters which must be restored via an IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight, but it's only a matter of time before he's reduced to a bawling, apologetic wreck.]]

* Dukat in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' has a particularly bad one while the Federation is retaking the eponymous station. His lieutenant shoots his illegitimate mixed-race daughter Ziyal when she admits to helping release a group of terrorists (who happen to be main characters) from prison, and the episode ends with Dukat in a cell huddled in a corner talking to the absent Ziyal, still somehow convinced she is devoted to him. [[SubvertedTrope Ultimately, however,]] this only made Dukat a more dangerous antagonist. Acknowledging Ziyal as his daughter cost him his marriage and saw him [[IHaveNoSon formally disowned by his mother]]; she was all the family he had left, not to mention [[MoralityChain one of the few people who could moderate his ruthless streak]]. Without her, [[THeUnfettered he has no voice of reason and nothing left to lose.]]

* ''Videogame/WorldOfWarcraft'': The only way to stop Algalon the Observer from [[spoiler:pushing the ResetButton on the whole world]] is fighting him with such tenacity that he realizes there may be something more to these "imperfect" creatures that battle him, whereas his employers' perfect creations would've failed. As he does, he thinks of the endless worlds he ''actually'' [[spoiler:destroyed for the Titans to rebuild]], thinks over how much ''they'' would've loved life, perhaps as much as his opponents do, and surrenders from sheer guilt.
