* SpiderMan has done this as a way to help villains such as The Lizard or Vermin. More often than not, he actually uses this in a way that is normally reserved for villains or anti-heroes: he humiliates them verbally, making them reckless. It has been revealed that a number of his foes have actually suffered some mental trauma because of this (then again, many of them were crazy already, so...)

* In ''Film/BatmanBegins'', Liam Neeson's character Henri Ducard a.k.a. [[spoiler:the ''real'' Ra's Al Ghul]] not only trains proto-Batman Bruce Wayne at the monastery of the sinister Brotherhood called the "League of Shadows", but also lectures him during training fights on the importance of overcoming his fears and making fear his ally, using it against his enemies. This evolves into full-blown {{Hannibal Lecture}}s later on when they're fighting each other as enemies; NietzscheWannabe Ducard frequently makes snide comments about Bruce's emotional "weaknesses" (hope for a better world, compassion and mercy) and claims that he and Franchise/{{Batman}} are NotSoDifferent. Unfortunately for him, Bruce has the last word.... Probably.
*** Bane is one too.
* [[Film/StarWars Luke Skywalker]] proves to be something of an impressive WarriorTherapist, able to talk his father--[[ItWasHisSled who happens to be Darth frickin' Vader]]--into [[HeelFaceTurn turning good]] at the end of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
** Well, he tried. Vader didn't turn until the Emperor [[PapaWolf tried to kill Luke]] [[TooDumbToLive right in front of him]]. Then again, Luke planted the seeds...

* Rider in ''LightNovel/FateZero''. Within one {{drinking contest}}/conversation on the right way to be king, he manages what took Shirou and Archer two weeks. Irisviel hits the {{reset button}} by telling her that even if she sucked as a king, at least she is essentially the embodiment of (self sacrificing) ideals. Since this is a prequel, it's not like she's going to magically get better ''now'' right?
** Speaking of Shirou and Archer, their match in the Unlimited Blade Works route has them both fall into this route. However, [[spoiler: the sheer mechanics of fighting your cynical future self over ideals is... complicated. Would that be considered extreme introspection?]] Suffice to say there are pages upon pages of philosophical debate, and in the NasuVerse, your conviction equates directly to how much ass you kick.

** ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'' sees Lightning act as this for Noel Kreiss, who has fallen into an obsessive depression over the last five centuries. He's submitted himself to a prophecy that seems to guarantee his happy ending if he kills Lightning, despite every fiber of his being saying that's wrong. After a warm-up duel, Lightning plays up on her status as Bhunivelze's savior, an "inhuman agent of the divine", in a bid to provoke Noel's old iron-hard revolve; [[spoiler:it works, and Noel finds the strength to smash the Oracle Drive and abandon that emotional dead end.]]

*** This trait of his is reflected in both halves of Zangetsu, who seem built to teach Ichigo through combat. Black Zangetsu acts as an OldMentor who urges Ichigo to maintain his resolve, the source of his spiritual power, and also gives tips like empowering his attacks by knowing their names. White Zangetsu, though being more of a Jerkass about it, nonetheless teaches Ichigo about the importance of having a killer instinct and embracing his more "negative" aspects.

*** Which has a lot of [[FridgeHorror Fridge]] [[FridgeLogic Stockholm]] when you consider how constantly and gleefully the Ryozanpaku masters ''torture'' their shared apprentice. Which leads to more FridgeHorror when you realize that YOMI methods were ''even worse'' in their own way -- deliberately indoctrinating a philosophy based on ''killing people'' into children.
