* King HenryIV delivers an absolutely blistering, borderline IHaveNoSon one of these to his son Hal on his deathbed after [[spoiler:Hal believes him to be dead already and immediately grabs his crown]]. In an interesting subversion of the trope, Hal comes back with a The Reason I ''Don't'' Suck, Actually speech and convinces his father otherwise, and he dies with the two at peace.

* Ultimately averted in ''FoxTrot''. Roger Fox is tasked with trying to secure a raise for his boss, Pembrook, at a time when the company is having to lay people off. He's prepared to tell him that [[ThisIsUnforgivable it's unacceptably selfish of him to take a raise at a time when the company is in peril and good, hard-working people are losing their job]], but a panel reveals that he's merely [[TrickDialogue rehearsing the speech]], and at the end of the arc, he doesn't manage to go through with it.

** In between the inter-Legion shouting, you got some of these between members of the one Legion - for example, Solomon Demeter casually informing the future Lucius the Eternal that while he may once have had the makings of a great officer, now he's just a lickspittle and sycophant with a swollen ego.

* In the ''{{Warhammer40K}}'' short-story ''The Last Church'', part of the Literature/HorusHeresy range, the last Christian priest on Earth delivers an epic one to [[spoiler: ''The Emperor Himself'']], calling him out on his hypocrisy and brutality, and pointing out just how his plan for a unified Empire of Mankind will fail, before choosing to burn with his beloved Church rather than take part in His vision.

** 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.
