** The Horus Heresy consisted almost exclusively of these, at least in the parts where they wouldn't have been drowned out by gunfire. ''Battle for the Abyss'', for example, has an Ultramarine call out a Word Bearer for his Legion being too weak to stand alone, hence their need to seek out gods, while ''Betrayer'' has Angron and Guilliman berate each other in mid-fight.

** The Horus Heresy consisted almost exclusively of these, at least in the parts where they wouldn't have been drowned out by gunfire. ''Battle for the Abyss'', for example, has an Ultramarine call out a Word Bearer for his Legion being too weak to stand alone, hence their need to seek out gods, while ''Betrayer'' has Angron and rip into Guilliman berate each with one of the best examples of one of these speeches ever given in the franchise:
-->'''Angron''': What would you know of struggle, Perfect Son? When have you fought against the mutilation of your mind? when have you had to do anything more than tally compliances and polish your armour?" [...] The people of your world named you Great One. The people of mine called me Slave. Which one of us landed on a paradise of civilisation to be raised by a foster father, Roboute? Which one of us was given armies to lead after training in the halls of the Macraggian high-riders? Which one of us inherited a strong, cultured kingdom? And which one of us had to rise up against a kingdom with nothing but a horde of starving slaves? Which one of us was a child enslaved on a world of monsters, with his brain cut up by carving knives? Listen to your blue-clad wretches yelling of courage and honour, courage and honour, courage and honour. Do you even know the meaning of those words? Courage is fighting the kingdom which enslaves you, no matter that their armies outnumber yours by ten-thousand to one. You know nothing of courage. Honour is resisting a tyrant when all others suckle and grow fat on the hypocrisy he feeds them. You know nothing of honour.
** To which Guilliman retorts ''"You’re still a slave, Angron. Enslaved by your past, blind to the future. Too hateful to learn. Too spiteful to prosper."'' Angron despised the Butcher's Nails [[{{Hypocrite}} but was happy to implant them into his own legion]], and he ignored how much the
other Primarchs struggled: Sanguinius civilised a world of mutant cannibals, Mortarion was raised on a poisonous world where everyone feared him but he still helped people, and even Konrad Curze in mid-fight.all his horror and brutality brought a semblence of order to the most nightmarish WretchedHive in the galaxy. All Angron ever did was blame others for the unfairness in his life.

** Guilliman seems to be good at making these. He was ''[[BreakTheBadass not]]'' [[BreakTheBadass happy one bit]] with the state of the Imperium when he was revived at the end of "Gathering Storm":
-->''"Why do I still live? What more do you want from me? I gave everything I had to you, to them. Look what they've done to our dream. This bloated, rotting carcass of an empire is not driven by reason and hope, but by fear, hate and ignorance. Better that we all burned in the fires of Horus' ambition than lived to see this."''

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' has a few of these scattered throughout, but none of them manage to be as self-destructing as [[Main/WhatTheHellHero Alexander's published rant at]] [[UsefulNotes/JohnAdams the only other member of his own party]] from "The Adams Administration". The one line Hamilton has on Broadway was a much longer rant called "An Open Letter", which was dropped just after opening night.
--> Go ahead, you aspire to my level
--> You inspire to malevolence
--> Say hi to the Jeffersons!
--> And the spies all around me
--> Maybe they can confirm
--> I don't care if I kill my career with this letter
--> I'm confining you to one term
--> [[Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix Sit down, John]], you fat motherfucker!

** Sometimes you even got them between Primarchs on the same side of the war, best exemplified a) when Perturabo smashes Fulgrim's face into a model Titan and explains that the Emperor's Children are officially a complete disgrace to the Legiones Astartes, and b) when Guilliman breaks Lion El'Jonson in half with two sentences.
