* ''WonderWoman'': In a metafictional example, a number of reviewers of the [[Series/WonderWoman2011Pilot 2011 pilot]] for the failed remake have invoked "What the hell, hero?" in noting scenes in which Wonder Woman tortures a man for information, throttles others with her lasso, and (the most controversial) throws a pipe through a guard's neck - all acts considered violations of how the character of Diana has been established in the comics.
* ''XenaWarriorPrincess'': Gabrielle betrays Xena, calls her out for her vengeful murder plot against the Green Dragon, and follows with a healthy dose of WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou in "The Debt". Of course, that was likely a reaction to Xena trying to murder Gabrielle's EnfantTerrible.

And since he didn't believe he was coming back, so he could deal with Wes, Gunn and especially Cordy hating him instead of intervening and cutting off all ties with them as long as they concentrate on the "good fight" that he'd given up on.]]
*** However, two episodes later, [[spoiler:he made a horrifying discovery about [[HellOnEarth Wolfram & Hart]] that made his actions AllForNothing, including firing Wes, Gunn and Cordy to prevent them from becoming dark as well.

** Hodor does this to Bran, in a Hodor-y sense, after Bran wargs into him in order to kill Locke. After getting himself back, Hodor looks at his own bloodstained hands, ''clearly'' shocked, and then to Bran, seeming to realize what happened and obviously not being entirely okay with what Bran just did, or ''made'' him do. Hodor isn't really capable of the same level of call-out most characters are, though. It gets worse when it's revealed that it isn't the first time Bran has invaded Hodor's mind.

** Arya has a bit of one in ''Lord Snow'' when she asks Ned why he would allow Sansa to marry Joffrey when the King and Queen put Sansa in the position where she would have to lie out of duty towards Joffrey or call the Prince a liar in front of them. Ned doesn't have an answer to this question and it seems to have had a factor in his later decision to call off the wedding and go back to Winterfell so that Sansa would later have a match with someone worthy of her.

** Not particularly vicious or biting, but Talisa Maegyr makes it clear to Robb Stark as to exactly what the costs will be to him pushing on with his war with the Lannisters, exemplified in the Lannister soldier that he witnesses her amputate.
