** Naruto gets called out by [[spoiler:Itachi]] on letting his insistence on [[IWorkAlone trying to do everything by himself]]get the better of him. [[spoiler:Itachi]] tells him that doing so is disrespectful to the people that care about him, and it's egotistical of Naruto to think that he can solve all the world's problems by himself. Of course, [[spoiler:later chapters reveal that Itachi did the same, thus he knows exactly that Naruto shouldn't make this kind of mistake. Considering the results of his efforts, which ended with his younger brother going insane with hatred and obsessed with revenge against anything he believes slighted the Uchiha, he's essentially the patron saint of this trope.]]

* In one episode of ''Anime/SpeedRacer'', an opponent needs to win to get medicine to save a loved one, yet the title character won't lose on purpose [[LawfulStupid because that is "cheating"]], despite protests from Trixie. [[spoiler:Fortunately she sabotaged him, putting people ahead of the integrity of the race.]]

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': The final battle with Cell. As Gohan's busy getting beaten to death by Cell (with Goku and the others just standing there watching), Goku wonders out loud what Gohan is waiting for, expecting the fight to bring out Gohan's full power. TeamDad Piccolo (who, frankly, was more of a father to Gohan than Goku was to that point), disgustedly calls out Goku for ''healing Cell'' and then just standing there watching him pound the life out of his son. Piccolo points out (correctly) that Gohan wasn't like him or Goku or Vegeta: he didn't revel in the fight; he was just wondering why his own father was just watching him get beat to death, wondering if his father values a fair, manly fight more than his own son's life, and that, even though it would probably cost him his life, he was going to jump in and help. Cue the "OhCrap! MyGodWhatHaveIDone?" reaction from Goku. Here's the original speech Piccolo gave to Goku in all it's scathing glory:

* Subverted in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', wherein [[spoiler:Jotaro was part of a high-stakes poker with the devious gambler D'arby, the betting collateral his soul and the souls of Polnareff and Jotaro's grandfather Joseph on the line. Avdol was perfectly fine with Jotaro adding his own soul, believing in him so you would. Cue the horrified calling out when Jotaro decides to add both the souls of the then-hospitalized Noriaki Kakyoin and HIS OWN MOTHER to the pot. Of course, this was all a clever BatmanGambit on Jotaro's part designed to wear D'arby down mentally, to the point where D'arby would subconsciously admit defeat, freeing the souls of those he had beaten (Via cheating but still).]] Earlier still, Avdol called Jotaro out for using Star Platinum to break D'arby's finger...until Jotaro himself called out D'arby's attempted slight of hand trick.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'':
** Aizawa gives (nearly) his entire class one of these after they tried to undertake a rescue operation against his explicit orders to stay away, [[spoiler: since the professional heroes were already planning a rescue, and the kids were in far over their heads against the villains they had to fight.]]
** During the Provisional Hero License Exam, Midoriya gives one of these to Todoroki and Inasa for getting sidetracked by a personal argument and nearly injuring one of the other examinees due to not paying attention to their powers.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', Eren is called out by Mikasa and Armin due to his unwillingness to fight [[spoiler:Annie/the Female Titan, despite the fact she killed Levi's personal squad and several other soldiers.]]
** Jean of all people points out how Mikasa's protectiveness over Eren affects her normally rational thinking and causes her to become suicidally reckless when he is in danger. Eren himself called her out early in the series for caring more about him than the human race.
* In ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', CrazySurvivalist ReallySevenHundredYearsOld AdorablyPrecociousChild Czes finds out that there is another immortal, the only thing that can kill him, on the [[UnfortunateName Flying Pussyfoot]]. He tries to convince [[AxCrazy Ladd]] [[CrazyAwesome Russo]] to kill everyone on the dining car to out the immortal. Not only does [[spoiler: Ladd respond with a BoomHeadshot, but [[PsychoForHire Claire]] [[AGodAmI Stanfield]] calls him on it [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill big time]]]]
* In ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', the main characters get this after they submit a one-shot manga to a Treasure contest that [[TheRival Eiji Nizuma is judging]], thus violating the rules of their contract, and Hattori tells them to consider Miura’s situation.
* In the manga adaptation of ''Manga/BattleRoyale'', Yutaka gives Shinji a hell of a one of these [[spoiler:after he accidentally-on-purpose shoots Keita in the face.]]
* Subverted for the majority of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. In the first story arc, [[SociopathicHero Guts]] lets himself get captured by some soldiers after killing a couple of bandits, knowing full well that the bandit leader will destroy the town he's in to kill him. When [[SmallAnnoyingCreature Puck]] calls him out on this, Guts laughs it off and replies that if the townspeople can't [[TheSocialDarwinist defend themselves, then they deserve to die]]. Throughout the series, Puck reprimands Guts for his actions, but the trope is averted because Guts couldn't care less about Puck's feelings and is never presented as a good guy to begin with.
** However, this all comes tumbling down at the beginning of the Conviction Arc. Before the above events happened, and after the tragic Eclipse, Guts left [[spoiler: his maddened girlfriend]] Casca in the hands of Godo, an aged blacksmith with a small daughter Erica, and Rickert, a young boy and [[spoiler: the only other surviving member of the Hawks]]. He then left to hunt Apostles and the Godhand and returned two years later only to learn Casca wandered away from Erica in the woods and is now missing. Guts flew into a rage and started yelling at Rickert for losing her and for not being out looking for her. Erica tearfully told Guts he all but disappeared on them for two years and that Rickert did go looking for her but returned to support them as Godo's been seriously ill. Godo, dying of old age, pointed out that ''Guts himself'' abandoned her in his own rage and as such he had no right yelling at Rickert. He also noted that Guts had allowed hate and anger to consume him in his grief over the Eclipse. This is the first time that the WhatTheHellHero lecture is played straight in ''Berserk'', as it causes Guts to make the protection of Casca his top priority and he begins to revert to how he was before the Eclipse. Even Puck is surprised that Guts' entire attitude changed when it came to saving one woman.
* In ''Manga/BlackButler'', Ciel Phantomhive, the TroubledButCute hero, has gotten one of these from, of all people, Sebastian, his demonic butler. In Chapter 34, [[spoiler:his StalkerWithACrush takes him down to the basement to show off a room that is an exact replica of [[BreakTheCutie the room where Ciel had nearly died as a sacrifice for a bunch of cultists to summon Sebastian in the first place]]. Ciel has what is his first shown [[HeroicBSOD full-out episode]], and he kills the stalker upon his request.]] After this, Ciel proceeds to [[spoiler:[[ShootTheShaggyDog tell the orphan]] who has worked with the stalker to help his brothers and sisters that he did not do anything wrong by [[MoralEventHorizon killing those children]] because he was protecting those he cared about, and needed to start giving a damn about himself]]. Then comes the Doctor, who reveals that [[spoiler:he was making sure the children's corpses aren't reaching the cemetery by using their bones to create prosthetic limbs.]] Ciel reacts violently, insisting that Sebastian [[spoiler:kill both aforementioned orphan and the mad doctor.]] Afterwards, Ciel demands they [[spoiler:[[KillItWithFire burn down the mansion, with the kids still inside.]]]] Sebastian then reminds Ciel that their job was to [[spoiler:''save the kids in the first place.'']] Unfortunately, Sebastian is bound to Ciel's will, so has to obey him.
* In ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', this is what Fabiola says to Revy after the latter [[spoiler: summarily executes a wounded FARC fighter who they told that they would take to the hospital if he gave them information.]] She also gives one to Rock at the end of the "El Baile de la Muerte" arc, because of him using most of the characters involved as pawns and the fact that he did it for fun as well to win the bet with Mr. Chang.
* Uryuu Ishida from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' gets called out by Ichigo for using Hollow bait, attracting lots of monsters, in the middle of a town filled with innocent people, all in order to have a hollow-hunt-off with Ichigo.
** When Momo Hinamori attacks Gin Ichimaru in a rage, believing him to have murdered her captain, Izuru Kira, Gin's lieutenant, gives one to her while fighting her to protect his captain, calling her out on confusing public and private matters. Later on in the anime, when Rangiku visits her in her cell, she gives her another one, saying that she should have given more thought to her position as lieutenant of the fifth division, and considered how best to lead after Aizen's death.
** Shortly before the Hueco Mundo arc, Tatsuki calls Ichigo out on leaving her in the dark about him being a shinigami and the situation with Orihime.
** In the battle for [[spoiler:Karakura Town]], Ikkaku fights against one of Barragan's faction, and while he has bankai, he chooses not to use it to prevent himself from being forced to become a captain and leave Kenpachi's service. As a result, the strategically important pillar he is protecting is destroyed, and Iba calls him out on disobeying orders for his own desires.
** A heartbreaking one occurs in Chapter 453 when Tatsuki calls out Ichigo for [[spoiler: tossing Tsukishima into a window, after he had brainwashed Ichigo's family and friends into believing he is their cousin/friend.]] What makes it worse was that [[spoiler: Ichigo was trying to protect them and they think he's losing his mind.]]
* In the ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' anime, when [[spoiler:Youko is outed as TheMole by Kirie in his last breath, Anko gets so pissed off at her that she repeatedly slaps her around, screaming about how she's to blame for all the heartbreak that the kids have gone through as [[FromBadToWorse things get worse and worse.]]]]
** Also in the anime, when Daichi, who [[PromotionToParent raises his siblings on his own after his father's departure]] is uncomfortable about being chosen as the pilot, which will result in [[spoiler:his own death]], Ushiro accuses him of getting cold feet and not meaning what he said earlier about wanting to do the right thing. Tanaka, however, responds with "Ushiro-kun, that's enough. Everyone's scared." [[spoiler:Considering that he's her son, that comment has considerably more weight]].
** From the manga, Kana gives one to Tanaka when she learns that [[spoiler:Tanaka is Kana's adoptive brother Jun's real mother and never told Jun about it]], and the fact that [[spoiler:Tanaka had previously agreed to try to help Kana find Jun's mother]] might have had something to do with it.
* In ''[[Manga/Brave10 Brave10 S]]'', Yukimura delivers one such speech to [[spoiler:Rokuro for nearly killing his twin Nanakuma]] in the TournamentArc after Yukimura has to jump in and declare forfeit before it goes any further.
* In ''LightNovel/{{Campione}}'', Godou Kusanagi is constantly called out for his IJustWantToBeNormal attitude and extreme reluctance to fight. When he shirks his God-slaying responsibilities, people will get hurt.



* During the chapters that focus on Team Summer A, Winter and majority of Spring living in the same village in ''Manga/SevenSeeds'', [[spoiler: Ango and Ryo]] are eventually called out on the things they had one, which included attempted rape ''and'' two attempted murders. Same characters later, thankfully, realize themselves what they did to Team Summer B and stop, although nobody else calls them out.
* ''Manga/HaouAiren'':
** In Volume 8, Mrs. Akino gives one to Hakuron after the Akino's home is burned down.
** Followed by one from Fuuron, who calls him out for going out of his way too much for Kurumi.
** And Kurumi attempts to give him one when she recovers her memories. Doesn't work ''as'' well.
** Even earlier, Kurumi gives a huge one to Hakuron when he kills Reilan.
* Shizuru Fujino from ''Anime/MaiHime'' gets an earful from Haruka Suzushiro and Yukino Kikukawa when she essentially abandons her StudentCouncilPresident post to protect Natsuki from Nao (not to mention [[DudeShesLikeInAComa kissing her sleeping body]] when no one else was around); Yukino in particular complains about her never acknowledging Haruka's efforts to surpass her, doomed as they may be, and Haruka slaps her for insulting Yukino and for being a SchoolgirlLesbian. She takes this as a slight against both her ''and'' Natsuki, and [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn attacks Yukino]], defeating her (and killing Haruka, who was Yukino's most important person) without so much as messing up her hair; and then sets off to finish her fight against Nao]].
* Uryuu Ishida from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' gets called out by Ichigo for using Hollow bait, attracting lots of monsters, in the middle of a town filled with innocent people, all in order to have a hollow-hunt-off with Ichigo.
** When Momo Hinamori attacks Gin Ichimaru in a rage, believing him to have murdered her captain, Izuru Kira, Gin's lieutenant, gives one to her while fighting her to protect his captain, calling her out on confusing public and private matters.

As a result, the strategically important pillar he is protecting is destroyed, and Iba calls him out on disobeying orders for his own desires.

* ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'''s Akaya Kirihara, a child-like and cheerful guy who turns into a TykeBomb when in the courts, is the first one to get called out. One of the managers, An Tachibana, is [[spoiler:the younger sister of a player he seriously injured with his violent tennis style]]; at some point she corners him to talk about that, but a verbal fight ensues, since Kirihara himself resorted to [[spoiler:insulting her and her brother's team.]]
** The second one is An herself. After her fight with Kirihara and [[spoiler:with him injured after falling down a flight of stairs, which could've ended in DeathByFallingOver]], An understandably panics and pretends to not know anything, so someone else is blamed by the others - Akira Kamio, An's UnluckyChildhoodFriend. Ryoma unmasks her, and Kamio reprehends An for her conduct because, as angry as Kamio himself is, he wouldn't deliberately resort to violence. (As for Kirihara himself, he has kept his trap shut because he doesn't want even more problems for An and himself.)
** And the third is Ryoma Echizen. He had been acting uninterested and bratty all the while, ignoring the challenge posed by a certain boy named Kevin Smith...until he sees Kevin play. Ryoma then practically ''demands'' to be in the Senbatsu team, which is seen by sub-coach (and Seigaku captain) Tezuka as a very rude request because [[ValuesDissonance Ryoma is putting his personal desire over the team's needs]] (seen as a ''huge'' insult to the team). Tezuka is actually so upset that he [[spoiler:''[[CorporalPunishment slaps]]'' Ryoma in public. Ryoma has to go into PoseOfSupplication to regain Tezuka's trust.]].
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'': Kyon often calls the series eponymous character on her [[ComedicSociopathy more sociopathic antics]]. Normally she just ignores him and even when she does back down she never concedes that she was over the line. But when she [[spoiler:got Mikuru drunk and attempted to make Koizumi take her first kiss while she was out of it just for the sake of her student movie]] and followed it up by [[spoiler:insisting she could do that because Mikuru is her toy]], Kyon was so furious that he actually tried to hit her. Fortunately both Koizumi and Mikuru stopped him [[spoiler:or the world would probably have exploded.]]
** In the books, he also calls out [[spoiler: [[OmniscientMoralityLicense adult Mikuru]] on her mistreatment of her past self.]]
** Kyon has a conversation with himself in the Disappearance movie that essentially applies this trope to himself. His mind asks him why he's complaining about all of Haruhi's hijinks that he finds himself dragged into, yet when he's suddenly in a perfectly normal world, he doesn't like it either. He then asks which world he'd really rather belong in, and gives a rather [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming awesome and heartwarming answer.]]
* Subverted for the majority of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. In the first story arc, [[SociopathicHero Guts]] lets himself get captured by some soldiers after killing a couple of bandits, knowing full well that the bandit leader will destroy the town he's in to kill him. When [[SmallAnnoyingCreature Puck]] calls him out on this, Guts laughs it off and replies that if the townspeople can't [[TheSocialDarwinist defend themselves, then they deserve to die]]. Throughout the series, Puck reprimands Guts for his actions, but the trope is averted because Guts couldn't care less about Puck's feelings and is never presented as a good guy to begin with.
** However, this all comes tumbling down at the beginning of the Conviction Arc. Before the above events happened, and after the tragic Eclipse, Guts left [[spoiler: his maddened girlfriend]] Casca in the hands of Godo, an aged blacksmith with a small daughter Erica, and Rickert, a young boy and [[spoiler: the only other surviving member of the Hawks]]. He then left to hunt Apostles and the Godhand and returned two years later only to learn Casca wandered away from Erica in the woods and is now missing. Guts flew into a rage and started yelling at Rickert for losing her and for not being out looking for her.

Even Puck is surprised that Guts' entire attitude changed when it came to saving one woman.
* In ''Manga/FutureDiary'', Yukiteru calls Yuno on her claim that she [[spoiler:locked and chained him up in her room and tried to kill his friends because she [[LoveMakesYouEvil loved]] him.]] To put it in his words: "What the hell?!"
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', several of Roy Mustang's colleagues, particularly Ed and Armstrong, have this reaction when Roy kills [[spoiler:Maria Ross]] by ''burning her alive'' because she's suspected of killing his friend [[spoiler:Hughes. Turns out Roy actually faked Ross's death and smuggled her to Xing to protect her]].
** Later, [[spoiler:Ed, Riza and Scar give him one when he's prepared to finish off Envy in revenge for killing Hughes, and Riza even threatens to fulfill his request to shoot him - and herself after the battle is over- if he strays from his ideals.]]
** Also, Ed has one of these moments with Ling after the prince [[spoiler:willingly lets himself become a homunculus.]] While the second Greed wasn't exactly a hero, he still got one from Ling when he [[spoiler:killed one of the chimera who had worked with the first Greed and who was only looking for his old master]].
* A RunningGag in ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'' is to have [[TeamDad Coach Kamogawa]] loudly calling Takamura out on his {{jerkass}}ery, [[AmusingInjuries even beating him up with his walking stick.]]
* In ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', Kuwabara gives one to Yusuke, Hiei and Kurama when they go off to the Demon Plane in the Three Kings arc, claiming that they are no better than the demons they fight in their seeking battle.
** This wasn't the first time Kuwabara gave one of these. During the Dark Tournament saga, he was the only one of the main fighters to be left in the dark about Genkai's death via Younger Toguro, and only found out about it when Elder Toguro boasted about it during their match. After the fight and his initial horror has worn off, Kuwabara expresses how angry he is with his teammates for leaving him out of the loop. By punching Yusuke in the face. He does calm down a bit after hearing that Yusuke didn't tell ''anyone else'' about Genkai's death, and did so largely out of his difficulty accepting it.
--->'''Kuwabara''': I thought we were a team, but I guess I'm just one big joke to you all, aren't I? [[DoYouThinkICantFeel Well, this joke has feelings!]] Genkai meant a lot to me, too! (''grabs Yusuke by the collar'') Did you all just sit around about how clueless I was?! Is this how you get your kicks, Urameshi?! Answer me!
** In the beginning of the Three Kings Arc, Yusuke meets with some demons who serve [[spoiler:his ancestor]] Raizen, and reveal that a three-way conflict has ensued between them over whether eating humans is forbidden, an unpleasant necessity or entirely permissible. Yusuke says that to the demons, this must be a mere argument over the food supply. After the demons depart, former Spirit Detective Kuroko Sanada walks up to Yusuke, having heard the conversation, and says that in light of what she heard, she's deeply uncomfortable with what he has become.
-->'''Kuroko''': "You should go to the [[spoiler:Demon World]]. In fact that's probably the best thing for everyone. After looking a demon who's eaten humans in the eye and distinctly referring to those humans as a 'food supply', I don't think you belong in the [[spoiler:Human World]] anymore."

* During the chapters that focus on Team Summer A, Winter In ''LightNovel/DateALive'', Shido Itsuki calls out Origami Tobiichi and majority her organization AST for their "shoot on sight" policy in dealing with Spirits. Sure, Spirits cause a lot of Spring living in the same village in ''Manga/SevenSeeds'', [[spoiler: Ango and Ryo]] are eventually called out on the things destruction, but they had one, which included attempted rape ''and'' two attempted murders. Same characters later, thankfully, never considered alternate methods in dealing with them, and never even try talking to them. Most Spirits are just scared girls who [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds don't realize themselves what they did their powers can wreck everything]].
* The task force call L on several of his actions in ''Manga/DeathNote'' -- both the genuinely extreme ones ([[spoiler:torturing Misa
to Team Summer B the point of almost insanity]]) and stop, although nobody else the ones that are probably just pragmatic ([[spoiler:trying to let Higuchi continue to kill so that L can determine his method of killing.]])
** The task force

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'': Kyon often calls the series eponymous character on her [[ComedicSociopathy more sociopathic antics]]. Normally she just ignores him and even when she does back down she never concedes that she was over the line. But when she [[spoiler:got Mikuru drunk and attempted to make Koizumi take her first kiss while she was out of it just for the sake of her student movie]] and followed it up by [[spoiler:insisting she could do that because Mikuru is her toy]], Kyon was so furious that he actually tried to hit her. Fortunately both Koizumi and Mikuru stopped him [[spoiler:or the world would probably have exploded.]]
** In the books, he also calls out [[spoiler: [[OmniscientMoralityLicense adult Mikuru]] on her mistreatment of her past self.]]
** Kyon has a conversation with himself in the Disappearance movie that essentially applies this trope to himself. His mind asks him why he's complaining about all of Haruhi's hijinks that he finds himself dragged into, yet when he's suddenly in a perfectly normal world, he doesn't like it either. He then asks which world he'd really rather belong in, and gives a rather [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming awesome and heartwarming answer.]]
* Subverted for the majority of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. In the first story arc, [[SociopathicHero Guts]] lets himself get captured by some soldiers after killing a couple of bandits, knowing full well that the bandit leader will destroy the town he's in to kill him. When [[SmallAnnoyingCreature Puck]] calls him out on this, Guts laughs it off and replies that if the townspeople can't [[TheSocialDarwinist defend themselves, then they deserve to die]]. Throughout the series, Puck reprimands Guts for his actions, but the trope is averted because Guts couldn't care less about Puck's feelings and is never presented as a good guy to begin with.
**
illegal. However, this all comes tumbling down at the beginning of the Conviction Arc. Before the above events happened, and after the tragic Eclipse, Guts left [[spoiler: his maddened girlfriend]] Casca in the hands of Godo, an aged blacksmith with a small daughter Erica, and Rickert, a young boy and [[spoiler: the only other surviving member of the Hawks]]. He then left to hunt Apostles and the Godhand and returned two years later only to learn Casca wandered away from Erica in the woods and is now missing. Guts flew into a rage and started yelling at Rickert for losing her and for not being out looking for her. Erica tearfully told Guts he all but disappeared on them for two years and that Rickert did go looking for her but returned to support them as Godo's been seriously ill. Godo, dying of old age, pointed out that ''Guts himself'' abandoned her in his own rage and as such he had no right yelling at Rickert. He also noted that Guts had allowed hate and anger to consume him in his grief over the Eclipse. This is the first time that the WhatTheHellHero lecture is played straight in ''Berserk'', as it causes Guts to make the protection of Casca his top priority and he begins to revert to how he was before the Eclipse. Even Puck is surprised that Guts' entire attitude changed when it came to saving one woman.
* In ''Manga/FutureDiary'', Yukiteru calls Yuno on her claim that she [[spoiler:locked and chained him up in her room and tried to kill his friends because she [[LoveMakesYouEvil loved]] him.]] To put it in his words: "What the hell?!"
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', several of Roy Mustang's colleagues, particularly Ed and Armstrong, have this reaction when Roy kills [[spoiler:Maria Ross]] by ''burning her alive'' because she's suspected of killing his friend [[spoiler:Hughes. Turns out Roy actually faked Ross's death and smuggled her to Xing to protect her]].
** Later, [[spoiler:Ed, Riza and Scar give him one when he's prepared to finish off Envy in revenge for killing Hughes, and Riza even threatens to fulfill his request to shoot him - and herself after the battle is over- if he strays from his ideals.]]
** Also, Ed has one of these moments with Ling after the prince [[spoiler:willingly lets himself become a homunculus.]] While the second Greed wasn't exactly a hero, he still got one from Ling when he [[spoiler:killed one of the chimera who had worked with the first Greed and who was only looking for his old master]].
* A RunningGag in ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'' is to have [[TeamDad Coach Kamogawa]] loudly calling Takamura out on his {{jerkass}}ery, [[AmusingInjuries even beating him up with his walking stick.]]
* In ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', Kuwabara gives one to Yusuke, Hiei and Kurama when they go off to the Demon Plane in the Three Kings arc, claiming
Mogi reveals that they are no better than the demons they fight in their seeking battle.
** This wasn't the first time Kuwabara gave one of these. During the Dark Tournament saga, he was the only one of the main fighters
consented to be left in the dark about Genkai's death via Younger Toguro, and only found out about it when Elder Toguro boasted about it during their match. After the fight and his initial horror has worn off, Kuwabara expresses how angry he is with his teammates for leaving him out of the loop. By punching Yusuke in the face. He does calm down a bit after hearing that Yusuke didn't tell ''anyone else'' about Genkai's death, and did so largely out of his difficulty accepting it.
--->'''Kuwabara''': I thought we were a team, but I guess I'm just one big joke to you all, aren't I? [[DoYouThinkICantFeel Well, this joke has feelings!]] Genkai meant a lot to me, too! (''grabs Yusuke by the collar'') Did you all just sit around about how clueless I was?! Is this how you get your kicks, Urameshi?! Answer me!
** In the beginning of the Three Kings Arc, Yusuke meets with some demons who serve [[spoiler:his ancestor]] Raizen, and reveal that a three-way conflict has ensued between them over whether eating humans is forbidden, an unpleasant necessity or entirely permissible. Yusuke says that to the demons, this must be a mere argument over the food supply. After the demons depart, former Spirit Detective Kuroko Sanada walks up to Yusuke, having heard the conversation, and says that in light of what she heard, she's deeply uncomfortable with what he has become.
-->'''Kuroko''': "You should go to the [[spoiler:Demon World]]. In fact that's probably the best thing for everyone. After looking a demon who's eaten humans in the eye and distinctly referring to those humans as a 'food supply', I don't think you belong in the [[spoiler:Human World]] anymore."
this.



* In ''Dragon Pink'', the protagonists encounter a group of "Slave Knights" - skeleton warriors who each have a naked girl captive in their ribcage as a HumanShield. The protagonists make an offhanded apology and immediately tear into one knight, brutally killing the girl. The rest of the knights are ''horrified'' by this behavior from a human.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Sugarboy informs Gray that the key to the Dragon Cannon can be used to change everyone back from Lacrima, and then freaks out after Gray destroys it anyway. [[spoiler:Subverted when Gray reveals that he can duplicate the key out of ice.]]
** Lucy calling out Natsu for demanding to know why everyone else allowed the guild to be disbanded and going their separate ways, when he'd just [[NotSoDifferent returned from a year-long trip he took without telling anyone else he was leaving.]] She forgives him fairly quickly, but reminds him of it whenever he complains about others leaving without saying anything.
** During the Galuna Island arc, there's two in rapid succession. When Natsu steals an S-Class job (extremely dangerous missions that no one besides the guild's S-Class wizards- Erza, Mirajane, Laxus, Mystogan and Gildarts- can take), and goes on it with Lucy, Gray is sent after them to bring them back, but instead tags along, initially because he doesn't want Natsu to get an S-Class job before he does. When Erza's sent after them and finds Gray and Lucy, she's quite displeased with them, particularly [[DisappointedInYou expressing disappointment in]] Gray for not bringing them back. When Gray learns that Erza plans on bringing them back once they find Natsu, without stopping [[RivalTurnedEvil Lyon's]] plan to destroy the village and revive the demon Deliora, Gray [[IronicEcho throws Erza's words back in her face]], and declares that he will finish the mission and allow Erza to do what she wants to him later.
** Much later in the manga, when the extremely powerful Albareth Empire is invading Ishgar in an attempt to seize Fairy Heart, Brandish, one of the top 12 mages in the empire, offers to help negotiate with August, who's one of the most powerful members of the twelve and someone whom Brandish views as a grandfather, in an attempt to end hostilities. Everything seems to be going well until Mest [[spoiler:implants fake memories in Brandish that make her try to kill August]], and Natsu, who witnesses this, is appalled at Mest's action, which was not only morally repugnant, but failed and only served to destroy any chance of peacefully resolving the conflict.
* In ''LightNovel/FateZero'', Emiya Kiritsugu correctly predicts this from Saber due to [[KnightInShiningArmor her nature]]. He arranges for his wife Iris to accompany Saber as her Master so he can operate with as little contact with her as possible. Eventually both Saber and Lancer get opportunities to lecture him.
** During Saber's final battle with [[WorthyOpponent Lancer]], Kiritsugu arranges for Maiya to take Kayneth(Lancer's master)'s fiancee hostage, and demands that he force Lancer to commit suicide, thereby ending his participation in the Grail War, in exchange for Kiritsugu putting a {{Geas}} on himself to not harm either of them. Once Lancer commits suicide, Maiya guns down both Kayneth and his fiancee, and Kiritsugu can't even [[MercyKill finish the mortally wounded Kayneth off]] due to his Geas, leaving Saber to do it. Saber then expresses outrage and Kiritsugu's extremely underhanded methods.
** Kiritsugu lectures Saber right back, saying that her code of "chivalry" has a way of glorifying combat, and therefore perpetuating war. In his mind, there is ''nothing'' good or honorable about war... so the correct path should be to end it as swiftly as possible, regardless of the method used. Saber is obviously disturbed and disagrees, as his murdering was ''utterly pointless'' in her eyes.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', several of Roy Mustang's colleagues, particularly Ed and Armstrong, have this reaction when Roy kills [[spoiler:Maria Ross]] by ''burning her alive'' because she's suspected of killing his friend [[spoiler:Hughes. Turns out Roy actually faked Ross's death and smuggled her to Xing to protect her]].
** Later, [[spoiler:Ed, Riza and Scar give him one when he's prepared to finish off Envy in revenge for killing Hughes, and Riza even threatens to fulfill his request to shoot him - and herself after the battle is over- if he strays from his ideals.]]
** Also, Ed has one of these moments with Ling after the prince [[spoiler:willingly lets himself become a homunculus.]] While the second Greed wasn't exactly a hero, he still got one from Ling when he [[spoiler:killed one of the chimera who had worked with the first Greed and who was only looking for his old master]].
* Generally PlayedForLaughs in ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', with Kaname chewing out Sosuke for one of his plans. Played for drama at the end of the Second Raid, when some soldiers call out Sosuke on his HeroicBSOD, and the fact that he seems about ready to [[AxeCrazy start killing everyone]]. [[spoiler:Kaname snaps him out of it.]]
* In ''Manga/FutureDiary'', Yukiteru calls Yuno on her claim that she [[spoiler:locked and chained him up in her room and tried to kill his friends because she [[LoveMakesYouEvil loved]] him.]] To put it in his words: "What the hell?!"
* In the finale of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', the Umibozu repeatedly call out Section 9 for killing them while resisting arrest, especially when Batou executes one that he'd just {{Mind Control}}led.
* Kyoshiro from ''Anime/GingaDensetsuWeed'' calls out Weed for banishing Jerome from the pack when the latter [[spoiler:kills the assassins Thunder and Lector]]. Weed, however, sticks to his decision, and Kyoshiro decides to split his pack from the Ohu dogs.
** He also pulls one on Gin for not helping Weed against Hougen, even though Weed wanted to do it one-on-one. Gin responds that [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself Weed has to fight Hougen alone to prove his worth]].
* In ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', Miho, having transferred to Oarai to avoid doing tankery, is quite upset when she hears that it's being offered again this year, and decides not to take it. The student council then calls her into their office, and Anzu, the president, says that if Miho doesn't take tankery, she won't be attending next year. Saori and Hana, Miho's new friends, are outraged over Anzu's pressuring Miho(even if it turns out to be [[spoiler:so that Oarai won't get shut down]]), having noticed how uncomfortable Miho is around tankery, resulting in an argument that only ends when Miho decides to take tankery to be with the friends who supported her.
** In ''Little Army'', Miho's friend Emi dislikes Miho's older sister Maho from the moment they first meet, causing some friction between Emi and Miho, as it's thought to be because Maho's team defeated Emi's older sister's team. Finally, Emi admits the real reason she doesn't like Maho; [[spoiler:Maho, during the last tournament, shot the enemy team's flag tank (an instant win condition) when it went to rescue one of the tanks on her team during an emergency, even though she could have won anyway]]. Miho is quite shocked to hear what Emi said is true.
** Emi ends up on the receiving end in the sequel, when she meets Sheska, a former schoolmate from Germany. Sheska had initially admired Emi, but [[BrokenPedestal that faded]] when, after a defeat, [[NeverMyFault Emi blamed her subordinates for her loss]], and [[RageQuit left the team and the school]]. Sheska then angrily points out that Emi's decision resulted in the team itself falling apart.
* Eikichi Onizuka in ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' often goes to extreme lengths to teach his students (and other teachers) a simple life lesson. These invariably get him into some kind of trouble when the higher-ups find out.
** In a few instances his students and his friends have called him out on his less noble decisions. For example, Ryuji refuses to talk to him after he starts kissing up to Ms. Daimon and her "points" system, rather than being genuinely concerned with helping his students.
* A RunningGag in ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'' is to have [[TeamDad Coach Kamogawa]] loudly calling Takamura out on his {{jerkass}}ery, [[AmusingInjuries even beating him up with his walking stick.]]
* ''Manga/HaouAiren'':
** In Volume 8, Mrs. Akino gives one to Hakuron after the Akino's home is burned down.
** Followed by one from Fuuron, who calls him out for going out of his way too much for Kurumi.
** And Kurumi attempts to give him one when she recovers her memories. Doesn't work ''as'' well.
** Even earlier, Kurumi gives a huge one to Hakuron when he kills Reilan.
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'': Kyon often calls the series eponymous character on her [[ComedicSociopathy more sociopathic antics]]. Normally she just ignores him and even when she does back down she never concedes that she was over the line. But when she [[spoiler:got Mikuru drunk and attempted to make Koizumi take her first kiss while she was out of it just for the sake of her student movie]] and followed it up by [[spoiler:insisting she could do that because Mikuru is her toy]], Kyon was so furious that he actually tried to hit her.

His mind asks him why he's complaining about all of Haruhi's hijinks that he finds himself dragged into, yet when he's suddenly in a perfectly normal world, he doesn't like it either. He then asks which world he'd really rather belong in, and gives a rather [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming awesome and heartwarming answer.]]
* In ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'', Yuri snaps at Itsuki for allowing baby fairy Potpourri to run off like he did, though Itsuki understands why it happened.
** Near the end of the series, Coffret snaps at Erika for her blatant misuse of her powers. When she passes out asleep and leaves the Marine Tact out, he snatches up and run off as a punishment to her.
* In the early episodes of ''Manga/InitialD,'' Itsuki often yells "TAKUMI YOU IDIOT!!"
* Subverted in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', wherein [[spoiler:Jotaro was part of a high-stakes poker with the devious gambler D'arby, the betting collateral his soul and the souls of Polnareff and Jotaro's grandfather Joseph on the line. Avdol was perfectly fine with Jotaro adding his own soul, believing in him so you would. Cue the horrified calling out when Jotaro decides to add both the souls of the then-hospitalized Noriaki Kakyoin and HIS OWN MOTHER to the pot. Of course, this was all a clever BatmanGambit on Jotaro's part designed to wear D'arby down mentally, to the point where D'arby would subconsciously admit defeat, freeing the souls of those he had beaten (Via cheating but still).]] Earlier still, Avdol called Jotaro out for using Star Platinum to break D'arby's finger...until Jotaro himself called out D'arby's attempted slight of hand trick.
* ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'': Kircheis issues Reinhard a WhatTheHellHero for not stopping an enemy attack that wiped out an entire planet of innocent civilians (note in the anime version, Reinhard only agreed to ''consider'' not intervening, believing he had more time to think about it than he actually did). Years later, [[spoiler:after Reinhard becomes Emperor, a man whose family was killed in the attack calls him out in public, accusing him of building his empire on the corpses of innocent women and children]].
* In ''Manga/LetterBee'', Lag returns from a year-long training journey [[spoiler:to learn how to use the Spirit Insect inside his own eye so that he can destroy Spiritus]] an entirely different person, to the point where he doesn't even react when he finds out that since he left, [[spoiler:Sylvette, his close friend, lost her heart and ended up in a sanatorium]]. Zazie gets quite angry with Lag and even enters as a rival candidate for [[spoiler:destroying Spiritus]], but after getting a glimpse of Lag's heart and realizing [[spoiler:that Lag essentially had to place a seal on his heart]], Zazie sends Lag a letter to apologize and wish him luck.
* ''LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'', anime edition: [[spoiler:Sanae gives a rather heartbreaking one to Yuuta after he lets Rikka leave to go see her father's grave in episode 11, telling him that Rikka had been waiting for him to call Rikka out on her total rejection of her chuuni persona and blaming him for her sudden change.]]
* In ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', Tohma gets scolded several times by Reinforce Zwei and Isis, due to his over-friendly personality toward the Huckebein, who, circumstances aside, are still a bunch of unrepentant mass murderers.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', [[spoiler:Chao]] essentially calls the collective presence of mages living on Earth, pointing out that it's really unethical for them to hide all of their abilities from the rest of the world, especially when a lot of magic is pretty freaking dangerous. Notably, the protagonist admits that she has a point and almost joins her, but ultimately opposes her anyway because while he agrees with her in theory, her methods cause way too much collateral damage for him to be willing to switch sides.
** There was a lighter one in chapter 349, where Yotsuba calls out the girls who were trying to force Negi to [[spoiler: confess who he likes]]. Her rationale? He's only ten, they already know about his magic and parentage, several of them have patios with him and he's busy with trying to save the world. Is he not allowed to have any secrets at all?
* Shizuru Fujino from ''Anime/MaiHime'' gets an earful from Haruka Suzushiro and Yukino Kikukawa when she essentially abandons her StudentCouncilPresident post to protect Natsuki from Nao (not to mention [[DudeShesLikeInAComa kissing her sleeping body]] when no one else was around); Yukino in particular complains about her never acknowledging Haruka's efforts to surpass her, doomed as they may be, and Haruka slaps her for insulting Yukino and for being a SchoolgirlLesbian. She takes this as a slight against both her ''and'' Natsuki, and [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn attacks Yukino]], defeating her (and killing Haruka, who was Yukino's most important person) without so much as messing up her hair; and then sets off to finish her fight against Nao]].
* Shouma Takakura from ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'' does this ''twice'': once to [[spoiler: Ringo (after her AttemptedRape of Tabuki)]] and later to [[spoiler: Kanba (after finding out his illegal deals to save Himari's life)]] The first one works, as [[spoiler: Ringo has a change of heart few afterwards (though it takes Shouma suffering body harm for her)]] the second [[spoiler: fails horribly since Kanba has already gone KnightTemplarBigBrother, thus he beats Shouma up and then leaves the family.]].
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' Season 2, Saji Crossroad [[spoiler: runs from the Kataron base and ends up captured by the military. In order to make it very clear that he had nothing to do with the rebels, he spills out their location, which resulted in a mass killing. Tieria then hits him and lectures him because of his selfishness.]]
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', when Carta is about to arrange a [[CombatByChampion 3 vs. 3 duel]], Mika immediately rushes out and dispatched Carta's bodyguards. She calls Mika out for [[CombatPragmatist having zero honor]] and [[KilledMidSentence killing her men unprepared]] when they are ''outside'' their mechas, [[DramaticallyMissingThePoint in a situation of]] ''RoaringRampageOfRevenge''. [[spoiler: Of course, Mika ignored her and [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge shredded her into pieces with a wrench mace]].]]
* In the Neo HK arc of ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'', Domon snaps when [[spoiler: Allenby is kidnapped when she's under Rain's care]] and chews her out rather harshly. When [[spoiler: Rain has an HeroicBSOD and resigns from the Neo-Japanese team [[ItsAllMyFault because she thinks of herself as a failure to their mission]] ]], Domon is told by Dr. Mikamura that he's full of shit.
-->'''Domon''': "Leave of absence? How can she be so selfish?!"
-->'''Dr. Mikamura''': "You fool, ''you'' are the selfish one! [[spoiler: Rain]] has always had a strong sense of responsibility, you pressured her until she snapped. [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud That's why the Kasshus can't fully be trusted]]!"
* Athrun and Kira both do this to each other in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny''. Athrun pointing out the Kira is interfering in Zaft operations, while Kira counters he won't trust Zaft because they sent assassins after them and are using a fake Lacus Clyne to use her influence for their own agendas and yet Athrun is seemingly ok with this. Athrun counters he'd never heard of assassins and Kira has no proof it was Durandal. Later on he tries this again in battle and Kira again counters that no matter how Athrun tries to justify himself he's still fighting against them, and therefore is their enemy. At this Athrun breaks, leaving himself unable to resist Kira's disabling blow. And since Kira's distrust is later proven right, when Durandal tries to kill Athrun for not agreeing with his plans he eventually agrees with Kira and admits he choose poorly, although Kira also admits he might have been a little too harsh.
** Athrun tries this with Shinn too regarding his bloodlust and willingness to slaughter anyone deemed an enemy, but Shinn who has a massive chip on his shoulder due to events in his past, refuses to believe he's doing anything wrong.
* In the backstory of ''Anime/MoribitoGuardianOfTheSpirit'', normally laid-back and patient healer Tanda called Balsa out over how many people she was killing while working as a bodyguard, asking her how much meaning her vow to save eight lives could possibly have if she was killing so many others to do it. Some two years later, he admits that it came as much out of his fears for her safety and his unrequited love for her as anything else, but Balsa [[ThouShaltNotKill took it to heart]] nonetheless.
* In ''Manga/MuhyoAndRoji'', Muhyo calls out Roji for going alone with Nana to deal with a haunt and failing to bind it with his ward, saying he almost got her killed. Roji earlier tries to give Muhyo one when he thinks he's sending Nana's father's ghost to Hell, but relents when he finds out that he's sending the ghost to the Styx (essentially Purgatory).
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Yamato informs Naruto about his injuring Sakura while in four-tails mode, and tells him that if he wishes to bring Sasuke back, he should rely on his own power to do so and avoid becoming agitated enough to go into fox mode. Yamato and Kakashi lecture him again after one of his LeeroyJenkins moments in the Three Tails arc, saying that it put himself and his comrades in danger, but both concede that Sakura's dropping down on Naruto and punching him into the ground was much more effective.
** Then there's [[spoiler:Sakura's]] (fake) confession to [[spoiler:Naruto]]. In her attempt to stop him from chasing after Sasuke and hurting himself, she wasn't very convincing and caused Naruto to call her out for lying to herself and to him.
** [[spoiler:Asuma, Ino, Shikamaru and Choza]] all get angry with Choji when he puts himself and his team mates in danger by [[spoiler:refusing to attack Asuma, who has been resurrected via Edo Tensei.]]
** Temari and Shikaku both call Shikamaru out in the Rescue Sasuke arc when he considers giving up being a shinobi. Shikaku, in particular, is furious with Shikamaru and calls him a spineless coward, adding that if he drops out of being a shinobi, his team mates will only go off with someone else and possibly be killed, and he has the chance to prevent that happening.
** Naruto gets called out by [[spoiler:Itachi]] on letting his insistence on [[IWorkAlone trying to do everything by himself]]get the better of him. [[spoiler:Itachi]] tells him that doing so is disrespectful to the people that care about him, and it's egotistical of Naruto to think that he can solve all the world's problems by himself. Of course, [[spoiler:later chapters reveal that Itachi did the same, thus he knows exactly that Naruto shouldn't make this kind of mistake.]]



* In ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub,'' Kyouya calls out Tamaki's father Yuzuru for [[spoiler:his plot to get Tamaki's grandmother Shizu removed from her position as president of the Suou family business. Yuzuru intended his plan to remove his mother's control over the family so that he, Tamaki, and Tamaki's MissingMom Anne-Sophie could be together as a happy family... but Kyouya correctly points out that he had no understanding of ''Tamaki's'' own feelings on the subject and simply used him as a pawn, dashing Tamaki's dreams of having ''all'' of them together as a family in the process.]]
* In ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', Garterbelt constantly berates the angels for their selfish and irresponsible behavior. It never works. In episode 13, [[spoiler:Brief of all people]] snaps and calls them out on their callous reaction to [[spoiler:Garterbelt's apparent death.]]
* ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou''
** When Jin asks Sorata about his leaving Sakura Hall at some point in episode 3, Sorata gives him the runaround. He then also asks about Mashiro, and that if Sorata was so tired of it, he would take over "Mashiro duty" (i.e. being her CloudcuckoolandersMinder) as well as the cats, so that Sorata could then be free to leave. Jin tells him that because he's sick of Sorata's lack of commitment regarding working towards a goal, as evidenced by his runaround answers.
** In Episode 10, after Rita explains how she failed to meet expectations due to being [[CantCatchUp overshadowed by Mashiro]], Ryuunosuke calls her out on trying to appease others' expectations of her more than following her true desire.
* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' episode "Piplup, Up, and Away!", the ''Team Rocket trio'' of all people call out Ash, Dawn, and Brock on not noticing how miserable Piplup was.
** In an ''Advanced Challenge'' episode, [[BewareTheNiceOnes Nurse Joy]] of all people hammers into May a big one about how she was pushing her Bulbasaur too hard.
** In the ''Pokémon Advanced'' episode "Brave the Wave", Ash was annoyed because he lose the battle against a carefree Gym Leader. Then he is called out by Nurse Joy, May, Max, Brock and ''even Pikachu'' for forcing his Treecko to fight beyond its capabilities during said battle. His reaction? Instead of taking his friends' advice like usual, [[OutOfCharacterMoment he claims that they know nothing]], and then he ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness lashes out]]'' at Brock by yelling a big "Shut up!".
** During and episode of ''The Johto Journeys'', Ash calls out Casey for her not caring about all the pain her Chikorita is going through during the bug catching contest.
** In an episode of ''Master Quest'', a girl training her Pokémon hard for cheerleading yells at her Pokémon for failing a move; in fact, when they start crying from shame, she only yells at them more. Misty then quickly calls her out for caring more about winning than her own Pokémon and not even bothering to check and see if they were all right. That's when the girl, after recalling the times she cared for her runaway Politoed, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone tearfully apologizes to her Pokémon]], and they accept the apology without question.



* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', after Yami's use of the seal of Orichalcos results in Yugi losing his soul during a FillerArc, Yugi's self-proclaimed girlfriend Rebecca chews him out for this, saying that if he really were noble he would never have done something that horrible. Yami doesn't [[HeroicBSOD even try to defend his actions there]].
** Also, during Yugi's duel with [[spoiler:Mai]], he refuses to let Yami take over. When Yami asks why, Yugi tells him it's because [[spoiler:he fears he'll try to hurt Mai if needed to win, since [[KnightTemplar he was ready to ''kill'' Kaiba before, by winning when Kaiba was ready to commit suicide]] when he pulled a cruel BatmanGambit to beat him at the gates of Pegasus's castle.]] It takes Yami pretty much ''pleading'' with him ''and'' Mai chewing Yugi out herself to have him change his mind.
*** Note that the above example only happens in the 4Kids dub. In the original version of that episode, Mai was chewing out Yugi for being so focused on Pegasus that he wasn't paying attention to her or their duel; the whole [[spoiler:"fear of what Yami might do"]] sub-plot wasn't in the original at all, but was added to the dub.
** The abridged version of the tenth anniversary movie had all three series protagonists chew out Paradox for his harsh methods in averting a BadFuture.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'':
** In the first-season episode where Judai duels Rei, Featherman is seduced by Rei's Beloved Maiden (meaning the Maiden's effect takes control of Featherman). Judai can't exactly reason with him, and trying to fight him with Sparkman only results in the same thing happening to Sparkman. Solution? He brings out Burst Lady, and ''she'' gives the two of them the Speech, humiliating them.
** An odd example happens in the third season; [[BigBad Yubel]] spends the whole time blaming Judai for abandoning her, claiming that what happened to her is his fault. What's odd about this? [[spoiler: Judai eventually realizes that ''she's right''. In fact, he decides to make amends, taking full responsibility for Yubel by bonding her soul to his.]]
* In ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', Reiji arranges his [[NotJustATournament tournament's Battle Royale event]] to happen on the same day that the Obelisk Force invades to force the participants to fight them off and weed out those too weak to face them. He then cheerfully invites the survivors to become his Lancers and take the fight to the Obelisk Force and Academia. Everyone yells at him for not warning anybody about the invaders and for not caring about the fallen.

Sheska had initially admired Emi, but [[BrokenPedestal that faded]] when, after a defeat, [[NeverMyFault Emi blamed her subordinates for her loss]], and [[RageQuit left the team and the school]].

* In the early episodes of ''Manga/InitialD,'' Itsuki often yells "TAKUMI YOU IDIOT!!"
* Athrun and Kira both do this to each other in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny''. Athrun pointing out the Kira is interfering in Zaft operations, while Kira counters he won't trust Zaft because they sent assassins after them and are using a fake Lacus Clyne to use her influence for their own agendas and yet Athrun is seemingly ok with this. Athrun counters he'd never heard of assassins and Kira has no proof it was Durandal. Later on he tries this again in battle and Kira again counters that no matter how Athrun tries to justify himself he's still fighting against them, and therefore is their enemy. At this Athrun breaks, leaving himself unable to resist Kira's disabling blow. And since Kira's distrust is later proven right, when Durandal tries to kill Athrun for not agreeing with his plans he eventually agrees with Kira and admits he choose poorly, although Kira also admits he might have been a little too harsh.
** Athrun tries this with Shinn too regarding his bloodlust and willingness to slaughter anyone deemed an enemy, but Shinn who has a massive chip on his shoulder due to events in his past, refuses to believe he's doing anything wrong.
* In ''LightNovel/FateZero'', Emiya Kiritsugu correctly predicts this from Saber due to [[KnightInShiningArmor her nature]]. He arranges for his wife Iris to accompany Saber as her Master so he can operate with as little contact with her as possible. Eventually both Saber and Lancer get opportunities to lecture him.
** During Saber's final battle with [[WorthyOpponent Lancer]], Kiritsugu arranges for Maiya to take Kayneth(Lancer's master)'s fiancee hostage, and demands that he force Lancer to commit suicide, thereby ending his participation in the Grail War, in exchange for Kiritsugu putting a {{Geas}} on himself to not harm either of them. Once Lancer commits suicide, Maiya guns down both Kayneth and his fiancee, and Kiritsugu can't even [[MercyKill finish the mortally wounded Kayneth off]] due to his Geas, leaving Saber to do it. Saber then expresses outrage and Kiritsugu's extremely underhanded methods.
** Kiritsugu lectures Saber right back, saying that her code of "chivalry" has a way of glorifying combat, and therefore perpetuating war. In his mind, there is ''nothing'' good or honorable about war... so the correct path should be to end it as swiftly as possible, regardless of the method used. Saber is obviously disturbed and disagrees, as his murdering was ''utterly pointless'' in her eyes.
* In ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'', Yuri snaps at Itsuki for allowing baby fairy Potpourri to run off like he did, though Itsuki understands why it happened.

** Jean of all people points out how Mikasa's protectiveness over Eren affects her normally rational thinking and causes her to become suicidally reckless when he is in danger. Eren himself called her out early in the series for caring more about him than the human race.
* In ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', Tohma gets scolded several times by Reinforce Zwei and Isis, due to his over-friendly personality toward the Huckebein, who, circumstances aside, are still a bunch of unrepentant mass murderers.
* In ''LightNovel/DateALive'', Shido Itsuki calls out Origami Tobiichi and her organization AST for their "shoot on sight" policy in dealing with Spirits.

** He also pulls one on Gin for not helping Weed against Hougen, even though Weed wanted to do it one-on-one. Gin responds that [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself Weed has to fight Hougen alone to prove his worth]].
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'':
** After saving Tsukune from Tamao and the Swimming Club mermaids, Inner Moka promptly [[ArmorPiercingSlap bitch-slaps]] Tsukune and chews him out for getting in the water with Tamao in the first place, especially since seeing him do so really hurt Outer Moka's feelings.
** When the [[AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil Student]] [[DirtyCop Police]] have Tsukune arrested and scheduled for [[KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade execution]], Headmaster Mikogami explicitly says that he's not going to stop [[KnightTemplar Kuyou]] from doing so and forbids Ms. Nekonome from doing the same; Ms. Nekonome wastes no time in calling him out on his decision not to act, especially since Yokai Academy's entire purpose is to ''support'' co-existence between humans and monsters. Considering Mikogami's [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] status, he could easily have been setting Tsukune and his UnwantedHarem up to take the Student Police down; still a pretty douche move, though.
