* (* The first time Charles chides Logan when he swears in front of Laura. When Logan points out that she had just slaughtered several heavily-armed soldiers so should be able to handle a few curse words, Charles retorts that she can learn to be ''better'' than that.

** While not in those exact words, the spirit of the trope comes up twice in ''Film/{{Logan}}'':

--->'''Logan''': Better than me?\\
'''Charles''': Actually, yes!
*** The second time is [[spoiler:Logan's dying message to Laura. He tells her "Don't be what they made you," implying she can be a better person than the cold killer Transigen wanted her to be]].

* [[ABugsLife Flik's]] TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Hopper doubles as this trope to his colony, and how the ants are not as weak and low-class as Hopper proclaims. In fact, it's because the ants are so much stronger that the grasshoppers depend on them for food in the first place.

* ''[[Literature/{{Takotsubo}} Takotsubo: The story of a superhero]]'' is a pretty upfront tagline: Cord Cai is a [[GenericEthnicCrimeGang Chinese-American gangster,]] who's normally a ''villain.'' Cord's backstory is a metric ton of shit: His parents are in prison, he was frequently gay-bashed (which is worse since he's ''bisexual,'' not gay), and joined a street gang in high school to cope. When he and his fiance Roland are trying to go clean, [[PlotTriggeringDeath Roland gets shot in a carjacking.]] When the PoliceAreUseless, Cord tracks the carjacker down and shoots him because [[TragicVillain he feels like street justice is the only thing he can count on anymore.]] The [[AllThereInTheManual author's notes]] state that this is his long journey back from the DespairEventHorizon to acknowledge that he's a superhero.

'''Soarin:''' I wouldn't trust anyone who was never ashamed of anything they did. It means they're not learning anything. A terrible friend would be pinning the blame on Twilight and none on herself. Look, think of it was your flight training, because I know you've trained for the Wonderbolts. You've crashed when you were trying to perform several of the more advanced movies, several times, I'm guessing.\\

* In ''When Things Go Wrong'', [[Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride Simba]], [[CallingTheOldManOut his daughter having ripped him for banishing Kovu]], asks Nala if that is really true that he "will never be Mufasa". Nala answers that he is not, but that he should stop trying and be his own lion, the way he was when he first ascended to the throne.

-->'''Simba:''' I want to know the truth. Do you think Kiara is right? That I'll never be like Dad was.
-->'''Nala:''' No, Simba. You are not Mufasa. ''(beat)'' You're ''Simba'', not your dad. Let him guide you, but don't ''be'' him. I don't want you to be Mufasa. I believe that you are a great king. You brought these lands back to life after Scar. You kept the Outsiders at bay. Even now, they still wait to attack.
-->'''Simba:''' Will I ''never'' be like him?
-->'''Nala:''' Why ''should'' you be? You didn't live his life, and he didn't live yours. I married ''you'', Simba, not your father. He never experienced "Hakuna Matata", ''you'' did. I would say that it brought a fresh life to the monotonous task of being king. Ease up, Simba. Every family goes through trouble at one point or another. Just walk your way through it, head tall and proud, knowing that you are you. Not your father, ''definitely'' not your uncle. You're a great king, Simba.

** Earlier in the film, Flik suffers a HeroicBSOD on the circus wagon when he's banished from the colony, lamenting that the fake bird he and the colony built was doomed to fail, as was he. Manny tells him, "I've made a living out of being a failure, and you, sir, are NOT a failure!"
