It can involve two siblings, [[HeterosexualLifePartners two friends]], or a married couple. This can often be a part of a BreakUpMakeUpScenario if reconciliation is always optional, but if not, then the relationship will harden and may be broken. This may cause the audience to sympathize the one doing the right-but-not-nice thing or even the one who has made an error.

Compare MinorInsultMeltdown which is where the victim being punished will fall into this. Also compare MyGodWhatHaveIDone which the action was reprehensible and is ''not'' justified, but the character regrets it. A rather lighter version of DirtyBusiness. See also JerkassRealization and MadeOutToBeAJerkass.

** After losing against Wulfric for the first time, Ash gets angry at Serena for trying to cheer him up. Serena, who has a bit of a crush on him and is a NiceGirl, [[WhatTheHellHero actually angrily calls him out]] on taking his anger out on her and thinking that Ash was not as great as she thought he is at the moment. But she does end up feeling horrible about feeling this way even when her anger at him is justified, and the same can be said for Ash.
