* In the fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7197056/1/Three-Families Three Families]]'', in Chapter 40, we get a great one from [[ItMakesSenseInContext Young!Azula to Old!Azula]] after [[spoiler: the Dai Li obey Long Feng and arrest Azula during the Coup.]]
--> Young!Azula: "This is what all of your scheming and preparation has been leading to, you old hag. All of that time and effort, wasted. I could have told you you'd find some way to muck it up. Your entire life is one big failure after another."
--> Old!Azula: "You don't know ''anything'' about me!"
--> Young!Azula: "I know more than you think. I know [[spoiler:that you turned me into your personal ball of hate]] against people who you see as your enemies. And you know what? I don't think they are."
--> Old!Azula: "Then you're a traitor as well as a coward!"
--> Young!Azula: "Oh, will you listen to yourself? You called yourself a traitor. If only you could hear yourself."
--> Old!Azula: "This is... a ''minor setback!'' I ''will'' find a way to rule this city!"
--> Young!Azula: "No you won't. [[{{Irony}} You've managed to fail in every way possible.]] I'm not the traitor to my homeland; you are! I'm not the screw up my father cast out; YOU ARE! This is all your fault! If you hadn't come along, none of this would have happened!"

** Earlier in the story, Azula (who Zhao believes to be a seer due to the Old!Azula possessing knowledge of the future due to her being a PeggySue) also delivers one to Admiral Zhao, informing him of how he wound up in canon.
--> '''Azula:''' "Would you like to know ''your'' future, Zhao? How you die? You die from [[WhatAnIdiot stupidity]], and [[{{Pride}} arrogance]], and avarice. [[NiceJobFixingItVillain You die because you take a victory and turn it into a defeat.]] You break the [[MakingASplash Tribesmen]], beat down their defenses, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu and hold their god hostage in your hand]]. And then you screw it all up, killing it, [[DoNotTauntCthulhu and invoking the Avatar's understandable wrath]]. You die because you can't accept anything less then... Zhao the ''Invincible.'' There's irony in that title."

** There's a layer of irony here in that, while Chloe absolutely deserves this speech by now, the Akuma of the chapter is ''not'' a result of her usual [[KickTheDog dog-kicking]], so much as the victim's misguided sympathy for her.
* The fic ''Satisfaction Brought it Back'' has a scene where Marinette is approached by Adrien's former boss Marcel Dubois, the chairman of his father's business, who asks her to persuade him to come back to work because he can't control the board without his support. When Marinette makes it clear that she has no interest in seeing Adrien go back to a job he hated and doesn't need, Dubois reveals that he can make things difficult for her boutique by threatening her potential retailers, and already has.

* ''Fanfic/BackToUs'' has one delivered by all of the heroes directed at a hate group calling themselves the Anti-Akuma Taskforce, created by Chat Noir's newly ruthless attitude towards akumatized victims, which he had since renounced before rejoining Ladybug. After the group march on the scene of a recent attack and declare Chat a traitor to the cause and Ladybug a hypocrite and a KarmaHoudini for the death of Hawk Moth seven years earlier:

* In ''FanFic/TheVerySecretDiary'', Tom Riddle doles these out like candy to Ginny [[BreakThemByTalking in order to destroy her]]. Ginny herself doles out a particularly biting one to him. Its all the more remarkable considering her mind has been enthralled to Tom's sick whims by this point.
--> '''Ginny''': Did you live in an orphanage?
--> '''Tom''': How…
--> '''Ginny''': It was the picture. The one you did not mean to show me, months ago. That room with all the beds. It was not Hogwarts. And it was not a house. You said that you were an only child. I remember. You also said that you studied at home, but now I know that was a lie. I think that you did not have a home. And then I remembered that your father did not die until 1946. Which means he was alive while you were in an orphanage. So he must have left you. [[ArmorPiercingQuestion Why did he leave you]]? (beat). [[ArmorPiercingQuestion What happened to your mother]]? Was it a terrible place?
--> '''Tom''': Oh, are we are back to Tom? And now comes a surge of pity… yes, I feel it. God, how insipid you are. How predictable. How full of drama and tepid romantic conclusions. It was just a place like your sorry little Burrow, overrun with children. No different.
--> '''Ginny''': You say that you can feel my lies. Well, you are in me so much now that I can feel yours too. And I do not feel sorry for you at all. I have been thinking. Harry is an orphan, and he is not horrible. And Prissy has everything she wants, and she is still nasty. So I do not know how much it counts. I cannot work out what is wrong with you.
(beat)
--> '''Tom''': Get.Out
