---> '''Baxter:''' Hey, pal. Hey, wake up. Heroes don't look like me, not in the real world. In the real world, they've got bad teeth, a bald spot, and a beer gut. I'm just an actor with a gun, who's lost his motivation. Be seein' you.

* ''Film/MalcolmX'' includes Malcolm X's early life as a criminal and the various controversies surrounding his life. It also finds time to remind the audience that Martin Luther King cheated on his wife. However, it ends with an {{anvilicious}} monologue about how Malcolm X was a great guy.

** This is played straighter in regards to her feelings for Alphonse. After Ed turns out to not be the person she hoped he was, once she gets to know Al (in his suit-of-armor body, of course), she begins to imagine him as dashingly charming and handsome in his real body in much the same way she did to Ed, and thus very eager for him to get his body back. However, when Al ''does'' get it back (after initially appearing to die), he's very emaciated and sickly-looking, not at all how May imagined him. Nonetheless, she still tearfully hugs him, overjoyed that he's alive.

* In the epilogue of ''Literature/EndersGame'' (and throughout the direct sequels), this trope is part of the a movement called the "Speaker for the Dead" (also the title of [[Literature/SpeakerForTheDead the first sequel][). A Speaker is something of a professional eulogizer, they speak at funerals and tell the story of the person who has died: the good, the bad, how they were seen by others, and how they saw themselves. The idea being to tell the story without applying judgement or justification, laying bare all the cold hard truths of the departed's life. In-universe, the concept became popular after it was done for the man who united humanity under a single government (the story including his sociopathic behavior as a young man, which included violent emotional and physical abuse and manipulation of his siblings).
