* Mediocre game ''VideoGame/{{Lair}}'' had a moment like this for Rohn on the final mission for the Asylians; [[spoiler:on it, Rohn mercilessly bombards the Mokai capital on his dragon, then he receives the order to flame a building with screaming people running towards it. He is told that the fleeing people were Mokai soldiers and the building was an armory, so he does it, reducing it to a flaming mess. Later, he swoops down to survey the destruction; he finds a single shrouded figure standing in the middle of what is left of the building. On Rohn's touch, this figure dissolves into ash, revealing a normal skull and an ''infant'' one inside the shroud]]. [[HeroicBSOD Rohn realizes]] [[spoiler:that the building was a ''temple'' and the people he incinerated were innocent civilians seeking refuge from the destruction, and the figure that dissolved was of a woman who tried to protect her baby from the fireblaze.]]

* In Episode 3 of ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxTheDevilsPlayhouse'', ''They stole Max's Brain'', [[spoiler:Sam is called this by the C.O.P.S. after he threatened [[SmurfettePrinciple Carol]] at gunpoint for making the Crimetron work anyway with the two clues he had in that moment]].

* Several of the ''UsefulNotes/SegaCD'' games, most notably ''VideoGame/NightTrap'', and ''VideoGame/GroundZeroTexas'', are notable for this. Make too many mistakes and you will get chewed out by one of the good guys, or mocked by of the villians. Here's an example from ''VideoGame/NightTrap'':
-->'''Lt. Simms''': I don't believe what I just saw! Those bloodsuckers just got Lisa, and you had a chance to save her! I put the lives of those girls in your hands and you screwed up! I'm pulling the plug on you before you do any more damage.

** In the ''25th Anniversary Edition'' of ''Night Trap'', if you fail to save Danny from the Augers, however, the only reaction you'll get from Simms is a SilentTreatment instead.



* In most Zelda games, attacking cuckoos will just cause them to kill you. However, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'', doing it while Marin is following you will just result in her yelling at you for it. Although this would be subverted on rare occasion, in which she would actually egg you on to "do it MOOOOOOOOOORE!!!". (Another [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess exception]] to the rule does ''not'' result in this]].

* ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars'': It is possible to kill [[Anime/VoltesV Jangyal]] in Scenario 19 of the Earth Route, who is worth a lot of money. The heroes will also get the burning enmity of [[Anime/VoltesV Heinel]]. Thiis is not advisable if you want to recruit Heinel later, so…

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}: Synthetic Dawn'' if the player chooses the shamelessly evil [[AbsoluteXenophobe Xenophobe Advisor]] and then proceeds to do things that are very un-xenophobic. [[UpliftedAnimal Uplifting animals]], [[TheFederation joining a federation]], or [[TechnologyUplift educating pre-FTL civilizations]] in particular. In all three cases, the advisor will [[ServileSnarker sigh in disgusted resignation and mutter commentary]] after reporting to the player. (Other Advisors, even those for seemingly "good" ethos, will make excuses for a player who goes against their ethos.)

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyBraveExvius'' features Rain and his companions doing this to Jake at the climax of the Zoldaad chapter. After a long and hard fight, Rain and his crew finally manage to save a CosmicKeystone. Jake then proceeds to destroy it himself, to the shock and frustration of Rain and his crew, who call Jake out on taking the world one step closer to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Jake insists that [[IDidWhatIHadToDo he did what he had to do]] - the empire of Zoldaad was using the power of the crystal to wage bloody war, and he felt that the only way to stop it was to cut off that energy source. He does admit, however, that Rain was right to call him out and that things went FromBadToWorse due to his actions. Part of his rationale for joining Rain's party is to make up for the problems he caused in destroying said CosmicKeystone.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Pirate101}}'' the player come across the problem of needing to break a couple of characters out of a Marylebonian fortress made to hold one of the most dangerous minds in the Spiral, one of which being said mind. Catbeard comes up with [[LetsYouAndHimFight starting a war between]] Marylebone and the Armada to get the Armada to attack the Fortress. It works but Catbeard underestimated how powerful the Armada is resulting in Marylebone nearly getting defeated by Armada. Ratbeard is quick to blame Catbeard but other members of the player's crew are more willing to accept their share of the blame.

Added DiffLines:

*** After [[spoiler: Paladin Danse]] is revealed to be a synth, if the player chooses to either kill him or let Elder Maxson due execute him, several of your companions will chew you out for allowing a good man and a friend to be murdered.
*** Vice-versa, if you convince [[spoiler: Danse]] that he has right to life and should stand up for himself, instead of [[DrivenToSuicide embracing death]], he'll chew Maxson out for [[spoiler: instantly turning on one of his best and most loyal men, because there's a strong ''chance'' he's a synth.]]
*** If you lead the Minutemen to destroy The Institute's HQ, but ''don't'' turn on the evacuation alarm so the children and other non-combatants at The Institute can get out, before it blows, Preston tell you off, saying that this will leave a black mark on the Minutemen as a whole.

* Solving the first major puzzle in ''The Mystery of the Druids'' requires you to [[spoiler:knock out a homeless man with medical alcohol and steal his money to use a pay phone. He later reports the incident to the police]], which in turn leads to your boss getting wind of it and chewing you out for it.

** The MC can do possibly the cruelest thing possible in the remake. There's a new Social Link with Tohru Adachi in the remake. [[spoiler:If you've seen at least the normal ending, you'll know that he's the killer. At Rank 8, you have the option of destroying evidence pointing to him. This leads to a whole new ending where Adachi never gets caught and actually laughs and calls you out while going home. It's called the Accomplice Ending, to hit it home further.]]

** In one of Marisa's endings in ''Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom'', [[spoiler:Marisa calls out Yukari for her seemingly lack of concern of some current events, such as barrier crack in ''Urban Legend in Limbo'' and the Lunarians' invasion in the same main game. Marisa even insists that she's willing to destroy the Lunar Capital's Occult Orb because it is a dangerous object that could cause Gensokyo to descend into chaos. Unfortunately, true to Yukari's [[TheChessmaster na]][[BlueAndOrangeMorality ture]], she denies her plea by stating that none of those events is worth enough to gain her attention. Yukari even tells Marisa that the orb could "change Gensokyo even more" and they're lucky to have gained such information and magical power. This leaves a bad taste in Marisa's mouth and she feels uneasy about it.]]

** Pops up with some regularity in the ''Touhou'' manga as well. Most notably in chapter 25 of ''Manga/ForbiddenScrollery'' where [[spoiler:a human villager who turned himself into a youkai calls out Reimu on attacking him with lethal force and intent to kill despite being friends with numerous other youkai. Reimu is completely unshaken by his pleas and explains that a human villager purposefully becoming a youkai is the greatest sin there is in Gensoukyou since it threatens the very delicate balance that the FantasticNatureReserve is founded upon.

** This happens again in ''Legion''... only on a much bigger - [[spoiler:and interplanetary]] - scale after the [[spoiler:death of Kil'jaeden]]. With the fight itself taking place [[spoiler:on a Burning Legion command ship which reaches Argus - the former Draenei homeworld, now turned into a primary Legion stronghold]], Khadgar and the others find themselves seemingly with no way to return home. Rather than resign themselves to their fate, [[spoiler:Illidan notes that he still has Sargeras' Keystone - the one he sent Demon Hunter player characters to fetch in ''their'' intro questline - and uses it to tear open a rift back to Azeroth, allowing Khadgar to teleport everyone to Azsuna. However, with there now being ''two rifts'' open, Kil'jaeden and Illidan's combined effort effectively tore a direct tunnel in the fabric of space; Azeroth on one side, Argus on the other.]]
-->'''Khadgar:''' What... have you... ''done?!''\\
'''Illidan Stormrage:''' Sometimes, the hand of fate... ''must be forced''.
