* ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'': Dr. Breen spends a good portion of the game trying to inferiorize Gordon Freeman to the eyes of the citizens through the several screens spread around City 17. "You have destroyed so much. What is it, exactly, that you have created? Can you even name one thing? (pause) I thought not". True, seeing that the only thing we see Gordon do is shoot things. However, it can also be seen as kind of backfiring, as his accusations show that he [[EvilCannotComprehendGood doesn't understand]] why the rebels started the uprising against him to tear down his little empire.

--> '''Michael DeSanta:''' You know, Devin, the way I see it, and hey, I'm no intelligent businessman like you, but the way I see it, there's two great evils that bedevil American capitalism of the type that you practice. Number one is outsourcing. You paid a private company to do your dirty work for ya, and then you underpaid that company because you thought you were big enough and bad enough that you didn't have to play by the rules. Oh, number two. Off-shoring your profits. But we know your opinions on the matter Devin. Keep your problems the fuck out of America, huh? Hey, Devin... Goodbye my old friend. Thanks for all the advice.

* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones'': When [[MoralityPet Farah]] first sees the Prince in [[SuperPoweredEvilSide his Sand Monster form]], she runs away, hurt that he kept that a secret from her. Even after he has turned back to his normal form, she refuses to trust him due to what she has seen of his behavior in regards to ignoring his own people's suffering in his determination in reaching the BigBad. The dressing-down she gives the Prince leaves him to wonder if he has been wrong to listen to the advice of [[EnemyWithin the Dark Prince]], his ruthless alter-ego. This leads him to [[HeroicFireRescue rescue a lot of people from a burning workshop]], after which he reunites and reconciles with Farah.
-->'''The Prince''': ''[back in his normal form]'' Do you see now?! The change was physical, nothing more!\\
'''Farah''': Why should I believe you? Everything you have done contradicts this! I have seen the way you hunger for combat! You take pleasure in creating death! Your constant talk of bloody vengeance, your cold disregard for your own people! You heard the women in the brothel as clearly as I did, yet you turned away!\\
'''The Prince''': But I came back. I came back! For you...\\
'''Farah''': You are a prince in title only. Go and reclaim your throne. But know this... you do so alone. ''[runs off]''

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': [[LaResistance The Stormcloaks]] are currently rebelling against [[TheEmpire the Empire]] because it was forced by the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Aldmeri Dominion]] to outlaw Talos worship after losing [[GreatOffscreenWar the Great War]]. Sybille Stentor, the Court Wizard of Solitude, delivers a magnificent one to the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] aimed at the Stormcloaks as a whole when asked why Skyrim's previous High King refused to support them.
--> '''Sybille Stentor:''' "Because the Dominion is a sleeping beast that Skyrim cannot slay alone. Because many Nords are part of the Imperial army even now. Because the food and resources we get from the Empire are important to our people. Because even if we can't openly worship him, Talos the god was once Tiber Septim the man, and this is his Empire."
** The ''Dawnguard'' extension's main questline end with the Dragonborn and [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Serana]] confronting [[ArchNemesisDad her father]] [[VampireMonarch Lord Harkon]]. Before the fight, Harkon blames Serana for betraying her to the Dragonborn after everything he provided for her. Her answer is the following:

** In ''Dragonborn'' the main questline ends with Hermaeus Mora delivering one to [[spoiler:his would-be Starscream Miraak.]] Of particular note is that Hermaeus Mora actually delivers the second half of it to the player as a warning not to grow too ambitious.

** One is delivered to SHEPARD (particularly Renegade Shepard) in the "Lair of the Shadow Broker" by [[spoiler:Tela Vasir]] as she's dying with a critically flawed and notably hollow ShutUpKirk speech calling out the hypocrisy of Shepard criticizing her when s/he's working with Cerberus, a terrorist organization. The flaw in her argument is that ''you don't work for Cerberus, you are temporarily working WITH them'', to take down a mutual foe that threatens millions. Most notably, ''YOU DON'T TAKE ORDERS FROM CERBERUS.'' This means that, unlike Shepard, Tela Vasir follows an order from the Shadow Broker without question, even when said order is "massacre hundreds of innocent people, murder and fellow Spectre, murder said Spectre's friend, and kill anyone who gets in your way without hesitation". She even takes an innocent bystander hostage, ''taunting her when she reveals that she's a mother, sarcastically telling her how her son would be so traumatized to grow up without her.'' It becomes rather jarring and obvious when the game purposefully leaves out any dialogue option to tell Vasir that ''you don't work for Cerberus at all, you're temporarily working WITH them to take down a dangerous enemy to everyone'', calling her out for the complete hypocrite and monster she is. Even ''Renegade'' Shepard can say this, as she/he never kills or harms anyone because anyone in Cerberus tells her to.
