* Tsukasa from ''Anime/DotHackSign'' has a revelation about [[spoiler:not needing to fear reality anymore]], a la this trope, [[spoiler:which enables his escape from "The World."]] In the process, he gives this speech.



* In the finale of ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'', the hero, Domon, does one of these combined with a love confession in one of the most [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] moments in the series, and often considered the most genuine love story in the Gundam franchise.
* Sakura of ''Manga/PenguinMusumeHeart'' gives one to Marie, talking about her strength from the PowerOfFriendship. The weird thing was, that at this point, Sakura was gigantic and Marie wasn't. There was no real point to start a battle of wills that ultimately evened the scales after Marie gave her own World of Cardboard Speech where she said she didn't ''need'' her friends. And ironically, it was Marie saying she didn't need her friends that provoked them to give her their love and even the scales.
* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', Fate gives a totally epic one in episode 12 before going on to have her BigDamnHeroes moment.

''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'', Kai gives a awesome one to Marie, talking about her strength before defeating Brooklyn.
-->'''Kai:''' [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya Kai. That's my name.]] And I'm a Beyblader. And you might think you are, but you're not. You learned
from the PowerOfFriendship. The weird thing was, that at this point, Sakura was gigantic and Marie wasn't. There was no real point best but you forgot a very important lesson. Beyblading isn't just about overpowering your opponent with fancy moves. That's only part of the game. There's more to start a it than that. Much more. That's why I have something you don't. I have learned from every battle I fought. Every friend, enemy, and spectator always had something to offer me. And I'm a student to this game. And I always will be. With the hardships of wills training, competitions, the wins and the losses, they all taught me something. And I've taken that ultimately evened the scales after Marie gave her own World of Cardboard Speech where she said she didn't ''need'' her friends. And ironically, knowledge and used it was Marie saying she didn't need her friends to my advantage. That's why I can say, that provoked them to give her their love and even the scales.
* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', Fate gives
I'm a totally epic one in episode 12 before going on to true beyblader. That's what keeps me going. And that's my strength. I don't think you ever will (understand). Because you're not a true beyblader. You have her BigDamnHeroes moment.the power and the skill, but something is missing from inside you. You don't have the beyblading spirit! That's why I have to win this battle! Because beyblading means more to me than you could ever understand! IT'S NOT JUST A GAME TO ME! FINISH HIM NOW DRANZER!"



* ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** In the first anime:
---> '''Edward:''' Even after I became a soldier, war still seemed like something that happened in a far off land, where I couldn't see it... or someone else fought and died. It didn't seem real... I thought war had nothing to do with me... But now that... I learned there's someone who's willing to start war, who's going to start war, just for the Stone... I know that as long as there are people who seek the Stone's forbidden power, that bloodshed will keep happening... And I know the desire for that power, lurks somewhere in all of us... [[spoiler:The Homunculi]] may throw fuel on the fire of war... But didn't the desire to bring back people we love, create them?... And if they're nothing more than products of our hearts and minds, no matter how pure our intentions... Then there will never be... a war, that isn't at least in some part, caused by all of us... ever.
** And in the final scene (doubling as BookEnds, as nearly every episode began with first the four sentences of this speech):
---> '''Alphonse:''' Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth. But the world isn't perfect, and the law is incomplete. Equivalent Exchange doesn't encompass everything that goes on here, but I still choose to believe in its principle, that all things do come at a price, that there's an ebb, and a flow. A cycle, that the pain we went through did have a reward, and that anyone who's determined and perseveres, will get something of value, even if it's not what they expected. I don't think of Equivalent Exchange as a law of the world anymore. I think of it as a promise, between my brother and me. A promise that [[spoiler:some day, we'll see each other again.]]
** Roy Mustang also gives one to Ed, Al, and Winry when he tracks the brothers down after [[spoiler:Ed and Al escape from Lior]]. It's about the difficulties he has as a veteran of Ishbal [[spoiler:including killing Winry's parents]], and how he came to Ed and Al not to bring them back to the military, but of his own volition in order to protect them.
* In part 3 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Jotaro is on the losing end of his battle against Kakyoin, but keeps getting back up in spite of being heavily wounded. He then gives a speech about [[ThisIsUnforgivable his motivations to fight]], and the difference between [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold him]] and his [[BrainwashedAndCrazy opponent]]. This promptly turns the fight around, leaving Kakyoin almost dead in the end.
-->'''Kakyoin''': And still, you get up. You are so pathetic; you're nothing more than a sandbag, about to be pummeled by a skilled boxer. Why even bother standing up? I'm just gonna knock you down again.\\
'''Jotaro''': ...[[GoodIsNotNice Look, no one ever said Jotaro Kujo was a nice guy.]] I beat the crap out of people more than I have to. Some are even still in the hospital. I've had idiot teachers who like to talk big, so I taught them a lesson, and they never came back to class. If I go to a restaurant and the food's terrible, I make it a policy to stiff 'em with the bill. But even a bastard like me can spot true evil when he sees it! True evil are those who use the weak for their own gain and crush them underfoot when they're through! Especially an innocent woman! And that is exactly what you've done, isn't it?! And your [[PsychicPowers Stand]] gets to hide from the victim, the law, and the consequences! That's why... I WILL JUDGE YOU MYSELF!!!

* Detective Ikari does this in the last episode of ''Anime/ParanoiaAgent''. As one of the characters who has gotten some of the worst of it: [[spoiler:he lost his job, his wife died, and he was too old to learn any new skills]]. His WorldOfCardboardSpeech comes when he [[spoiler:destroys the 2-D fantasy world with a baseball bat, claiming that the real world has no place for an old man like him, but that he would rather face that harsh reality than live in a fantasy world]]. It is truly epic to watch.
* In the first few ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' books and pretty much the entire anime, Kyon is just trying to get by, to do what he needs to do to deal with Haruhi and little more, relying on Nagato to handle any really serious issues. Then the whole world changes, so that he could go back to a normal life. In the end, he decides (In a World of Cardboard Monologue) that he much prefers the old world, and is willing to go back and enjoy it head on, and no longer [[spoiler:rely on Yuki so much, whom had caused the events of the story as part of a nervous breakdown.]] TheMovie version of this is epic.



* Occurs in ''Anime/TheSoulTaker'' when the protagonist, suffering from repressed guilt about Maya's death, allows the Soul Anubis to pummel him... until he comes to a realization.
-->'''Kyōsuke:''' I wanted to feel the pain Maya suffered, even just for a moment. I felt that I should know that pain. But right now, no matter how many times I'm hit, I'm not able to feel the pain. So now, I'm ''ending it''.
* In ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'', Kai gives a awesome one before defeating Brooklyn.
-->'''Kai:''' [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya Kai. That's my name.]] And I'm a Beyblader. And you might think you are, but you're not. You learned from the best but you forgot a very important lesson.

That's why I can say, that I'm a true beyblader. That's what keeps me going. And that's my strength. I don't think you ever will (understand). Because you're not a true beyblader. You have the power and the skill, but something is missing from inside you. You don't have the beyblading spirit! That's why I have to win this battle!

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'':
** Simon gets an ''awesome'' speech when he breaks out of his HeroicBSOD and comes to accept his own strengths and weaknesses instead of measuring himself against Kamina. Then he [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown drills General Guame a new one]].
--->'''Simon:''' [[spoiler:My bro is dead. He's gone! But he's right there on my back, and here in my heart! He lives on as a part of me!]] If you're gonna dig, dig to the heavens. No matter what's in my way, I won't stop! Once I've dug through -- it means that I've won! Just who the hell do you think I am? I'm Simon. I'm not my Bro! I'M ME!! '''[[TheMagnificent Simon the Digger!]]'''
** And then there's the speech to the Anti-Spiral, which is on the quotes page.
* Tsukasa from ''Anime/DotHackSign'' has a revelation about [[spoiler:not needing to fear reality anymore]], a la this trope, [[spoiler:which enables his escape from "The World."]] In the process, he gives this speech.
* At the end of ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'', Kotetsu gives one when [[spoiler:he returns from his TenMinuteRetirement]].
-->'''Kotetsu:''' And you know what? I realized you don't get to set your own limits. Even after I [[spoiler:lose my powers]] and get mocked by everyone or look ridiculous, I'm not going to let that stop me. I'm going to stay a hero to the very end. I'm not going to give up. Besides, it doesn't hurt to have a hero who's uncool, right?
* The Final Trials in ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' were pretty much this: the four Cures are set against their Mirage selves, embodying their own hang-ups (Tsubomi's insecurity, Erika's jealousy towards her sister, Itsuki's denial of being herself, and Yuri's regrets and failures). As each Cure fights, they come to realize that that's what makes them who they are and they'll use it to become stronger. It takes Tsubomi the longest since she isn't sure if she can confront that part of herself, but she does. It helps unlock their SuperMode in the end, so that's a plus.



* In the manga version of ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', Takami "Komo" Komoda, who was lonely and detached from the world for much of her childhood, plays the piano [[spoiler:as part of a plan to lure out the enemy pilot, who has fled from his robot]]. She gives an internal monologue about everything she has noticed about the world, and how she considers it beautiful and something that could only come about as a result of a miracle.
-->'''Komo''': Thank you everyone. If only I had noticed what exactly surrounds me sooner. But it's okay, now that I have noticed. Noticed the world.
* Rolo of ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' overcomes his training as a tool due to his feelings of brotherly love for Lelouch, enabling him to utilize his Geass so effectively he wipes out entire squadrons of Knightmares. Even as the strain is killing him, he's happily explaining how Lelouch has finally made it possible for him to feel like a human.

--->There's a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you." Now... I been sayin' that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, that meant your ass. You'd be dead right now. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin' made me think twice. See, now I'm thinking: maybe it means you're the evil man. And I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here... he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could mean you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish. And I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd.

I just thought it was a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin' made me think twice. See, now I'm thinking: maybe it means you're the evil man. And I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here... he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could mean you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish. And I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd.

* On Wrestling/{{TNA}}'s April 14, 2011 edition, Mickie James confronts her archenemy Madison Rayne, who the previous week hit her with a motorcycle. She gives her own speech, telling Madison that while she has been making her life a living hell, the previous week she went too far and tried to take the [[DirtyCoward coward's way out]] of their match. She then states that ''nothing'', including her dislocated shoulder, will stop her from beating Madison to within an inch of her life at ''Lockdown''. And she meant every word, ''[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown completely destroying]]'' Madison at ''Lockdown'' in [[CurbStompBattle 36 seconds]]. Deserves special mention for Mickie's completely {{Badass}} delivery of the speech.

* Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath's published ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novel ''[[http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/638679747?book_show_action=true&from_review_page=1 The Prometheus Design]]'' is ''all'' about Spock doing the "shouldn't hold back" type, encouraged by the legendary Vulcan explorer Savaj to accept and embrace his inner Badass. It seems that Vulcans have all kindsa super powers[[note]]among them, SuperStrength, MindControl Telepathy (aka true telepathy) and super-fast reaction time and reflexes[[/note]] and {{Badass}} abilities, but Spock, living among PunyEarthlings as he does, [[WillfullyWeak doesn't want to acknowledge his]]. According to the authors, Canon Spock was an extremely watered-down version of what he and Vulcans are really capable of. Pick up a copy of -- well, any of Marshak and Culbreath's published Star Trek novels, or [[http://www.simegen.com/fandom/startrek/kraith/ go read anything in the ''Kraith'' series starting with Volume Four]] which was where Marshak came on board the writing team[[note]]she virtually took over the remaining plot plans, and the series as creator Jacqueline Lichtenberg had envisioned it [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings was never completed]].[[/note]]. [[AuthorAppeal Marshak just loves this trope.]]

* ''Silence'' by Shusako Endo is a HistoricalFiction novel dealing with persecutions of JapaneseChristian in the 1600s by the Shogunate. The lead character, Fr. Rodrigo is wracked by the "silence of God" in the face of the sufferings undergone by the faithful and the ineffectiveness of any attempts at martyrdom. Eventually, [[spoiler:he apostasizes to prevent the sufferings of other captives and yet another apostate comes to him and treats him like a priest, insisting that they apostasized because they were weak and not strong, but they did not suffer the less for being so. This leads him to an epiphany where the act of compassion towards other people's sufferings and the capacity to share other people's pain is by itself proof of God]]:
