*** Perhaps the most [[TearJerker tearjerking]] thing in the game. [[spoiler:Sometimes one person's life at the cost of millions is alright. It isn't pleasant, it sucks, but, to stop even greater tragedy, sacrifices must be made]].

*** On the same vein, it is worth noting that REX, after being stripped of its railgun (which makes it capable of firing nukes), is now fighting RAY, who in this case is ''protecting'' a nuke launching. So, REX now takes the same stance as RAY originally did; stopping nukes launching. ''AND IT WINS.'' [[RightMakesMight So... yeah.]] It also has the message that, [[TheAtoner even after doing horrible things, you can still atone for your sins.]]

** In addition, Child Abuse is wrong and toxic maschismo isn't going to make things any better. In addition, if you want to be a parent, it's not about you anymore.

* ''Persona2'', particularly Eternal Punishment has one emerge from the stories of the characters. Life may not go the way you want it to; and it won't get any easier, but it's not the end of the world if you don't get to do what you want to do. You can still move on and still find success in other ways.

* [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/683106 We Become What We Behold]] is a short flash game that doesn't just drop its anvil, [[UpToEleven but shoots it from orbit out of a railgun station with the force of ten nukes.]] The media (played by you) and the populace are little more than an [[ViciousCycle Ouroboros]], as the media is interesting it nothing but [[IfItBleedsItLeads generating scandal and outrage for profit]] as [[LuridTalesOfDoom it takes small negative occurrences and blows them out of proportion.]] At the same time, the populace don't make anything better, [[GullibleLemmings by blindly believing in the morally bankrupt news media and perpetuating its false message]] while the DevilInPlainSight [[KarmaHoudini get away with it all]]. In the end, no one wins; not even survivors of the tragedy, the genuinely good people who tried to counter the corrupt media.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' shows that the world isn't just [[BlackAndWhiteMorality Black And White]], and how warring over ideals and perceived absolutes without regard to those who get helplessly caught up in such conflicts will just make everyone hate you, regardless of which side is "right".

** Another thing the game brutally deconstructs is the very purpose of the BigBad itself. Throughout the game, Walker uses Konrad to justify his actions, since he needs to liberate Dubai from his martial law. However, [[spoiler:finding out that Konrad (or more accurately, the version of him that Walker has dealt with all game) was just a figment of his imagination that Walker created to deny his actions]] not only deals a potentially [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide]] reaction from Walker, but also is the straw that breaks the player's morale as well. Really, the deconstruction of a villain as a justification for the protagonist's actions applies to all forms of narrative fiction.
