** Strange also gives a speech along these lines to [[spoiler: Jason Todd]] when offering him the Sword of Faith for temporary use and remarking, "Faith can be something that someone has in you."
** Harry gives a speech along these lines to [[spoiler: Maddie]], when she's [[ParanoiaFuel doubting that anything she's doing that's apparently against]] [[spoiler: Essex/Sinister's interests]] after all and that she's still his pawn, saying that he believes in her. When she says that he doesn't know what she's done, he replies that a lot of the people he knows have done terrible things. So has he, if you think about it. [[TheAtoner What matters is that she's trying to be better.]]

** Likewise, Harry spends a good part of ''Literature/GhostStory'' trying to convince a StreetUrchin that he's more than he thinks it is. He hasn't been back in the series since then, so it's hard to say how well he took Harry's words to heart. Interestingly, the boy has [[OrphansOrdeal a number]] of [[EvilMentor similarities]] with Harry at that age.

* "Super Trouper" by ''Music/Superchick'' is about urging a friend to stop settling for the easy things in life and stop being afraid to take risks, and start living up to his or her potential.

** Eren, Mikasa and Armin feel this way about Hannes, particularly after the Fall of Shinganshina, where he elects to run away with the former two rather than go back to rescue Carla Yeager. He blames himself so much that he looks to have sworn off of alcohol and devoted himself to getting better. That said, the kids hold him in high regard and place the blame for the whole situation solely on the Titans.

** Rainbow Dash is in shambles knowing that she and her friends [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 turned their backs on Twilight over a misunderstanding at the wedding rehearsal]], and that Twilight [[EasilyForgiven forgave them easily]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 when they were found out]]. When she tells Soarin about everything and calls herself a bad friend, he tells her that she is nothing of the sort.

* In ''TabletopGames/{{Exalted}}'', there is a particular Social Charm for the Solar Exalted that acts as a literal gameplay effect of this trope: ''You Can Be More'', allowing a Solar to mend the broken spirits of those around them. With sufficient power behind it, the Charm can even literally cause a mortal to be more by making them become a Heroic Mortal and greatly increasing their own chances to Exalt.

** This is a recurring trope for Starlight Glimmer:
*** "The Cutie Re-Mark": Being defeated once again, giving up her ideals for good, on top of witnessing the dire consequences of her actions, Starlight is left guilt-stricken and broken. She doesn't know what to do with herself anymore and is ready to face whatever punishment awaits her. Twilight and the others decide to bring her in, so they can show her the true benefits of Friendship. Twilight in particular seeing and noting Starlight's amazing talent and even greater potential that Starlight herself never noticed or realized. Starlight Glimmer is now Twilight's new pupil, effectively becoming a SixthRanger to the Mane Six.
*** "The Crystalling Part 2", Starlight expresses disappointment after her initial attempts to reconcile with Sunburst don't work out and questions whether or not Twilight Sparkle was right in considering her worthy of friendship and giving her another chance as her pupil. Spike tells Starlight she is worth being friends with and encourages her to keep trying to reconcile with Sunburst. [[spoiler: Which she manages in the end.]]
*** "To Where and Back Again", Trixie assures Starlight that she is a good leader, and that she must embrace her talent for it, despite her own fears. This pep talk is enough to convince Starlight to press on with the rescue mission.

** Later on, Twilight said this to her and the rest of Mane Six, Celestia, and Shining Armor. That even though they treated her badly, they themselves are not bad ponies.
