* ''Far Cry 2'' has a minor example where civilians who accept your help (you give them passports in exchange for medicine for your malaria) will initially respond positively to you. As you complete more missions and you get a reputation among mercenaries, civilians will still do this trade with you (since they have little choice), but will hint that they regard you negatively.

** In the earlier ''VideoGame/UltimaVI'' Dupre will get testy if the Avatar decides to go wenching before the quest is complete. Ignoring him costs you a lot of Karma, and all you get for your trouble is robbed.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'':
** Near the end of the game, the player will encounter a figure in a church-like hallway whose specific role is to judge the player on their actions throughout the game. If you've killed at all, you'll get a comment about whether or not you did the right thing. If you killed [[spoiler:Papyrus in particular]], you'll be asked if with great power ComesGreatResponsibility and get called out on that specific death regardless of your answer. If you went full-on Genocide run, this person becomes your final boss.
** On the True Pacifist route, the boss fight with Asgore is interrupted before it can begin by [[spoiler:Toriel, Asgore's ActualPacifist ex-wife who you have not seen since the beginning of the game]]. Asgore is happy about the reunion, but the feeling is not mutual as Asgore is quickly called out on his own cowardice. Through the course of the game, you learn that passing the barrier sealing the monsters in the Underground requires a monster to take a human's soul or vice versa, and that seven human souls are needed to destroy the barrier entirely. Asgore has spent years collecting the souls of humans who have fallen into the Underground and has six by the time of the game. During this scene, and despite [[spoiler:Toriel's own pacifism]], it's pointed out that Asgore only ever ''needed'' one soul, at which point he could have gone to the surface, taken six more, and destroyed the barrier ''much'' sooner and relatively more peacefully than declaring that all humans who fall into the Underground are to be killed on sight did. Asgore is also called out on declaring this edict while hoping that no humans ever actually appear.

** In ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', Elizabeth can often do this with Booker. When she and Booker are lured into a trap, resulting in him killing many of the Founders sent to retrieve her, Elizabeth is horrified at how easily he killed his opponents, but Booker in turn calls her out on thinking that it wouldn't end in violence. When Elizabeth learns that Booker lied about taking her to Paris, and is taking her to New York instead to settle his debt, she starts crying, and knocks him out with a wrench when he lowers his guard.



** Joker gives Shepard this in a brief, but hilarious manner if [[spoiler:Shepard saves the obviously insane Reaper-created Rachni Breeder]].

* The reason why [[TheOjou Mitsuru]] in ''{{VideoGame/Persona 3}}'' doesn't tell the underclassmen of SEES about the [[HourOfPower Dark Hour]] or the origins of the Shadows at first, or their connection to an incident ten years prior, is because she felt that they seemed irrelevant - putting and end to them were what mattered more. Yukari calls her out on it, as well as [[BigManOnCampus Akihiko]], another senior, for not caring about her witholding information or how the underclassmen feel, as [[BloodKnight he only wants in on battling Shadows.]] While they are rightly called out for keeping secrets and essentially being used by the Kirijo Group (the family-owned company Mitsuru is heiress to), [[spoiler:Mitsuru herself is still coping with the trauma of being used as a guinea pig by her grandfather's Persona-related experiments, and she and her father feel a lot of guilt for her grandfather's bringing about the Dark Hour in the first place]]. It's not much of an excuse for Akihiko though, as his own reason for fighting ([[spoiler:feeling weak after seeing his younger sister die in a fire]]) is far more flimsy, and in regards to his conflict with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Shinjiro]], shows signs of [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocrisy]].

* During the trek in the Ice Palace in ''VideoGame/PaperMario64'', some enemies will disguise themselves as Mario's party members, but do a bad job keeping in character (the final trick they pull has them disguise themselves as various [=NPCs=] you've met and would have no reason to suddenly show up). Mario has to whack the false character with his hammer to proceed, but you can also have Mario be a total jerk by whacking his own party members. Doing so gets Mario a scolding from his friends while the enemies who pulled off the trick attack you, forcing you into battle.
* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' has many dialogue choices peppered throughout the game, which usually amounts to having Mario respond nicely (yes) or being a total dick (no). Having Mario giving jerk responses will have his party members or the NPC chew him out for being mean, but the plot will usually continue on [[ButThouMust regardless of what you said]].

* Deliberately failing mission objectives in the ''[[DesertStrike Strike]]'' series would often result in your getting a rather mild one of these from your commanding officer after you returned to base. There are some ways to fail missions that aren't even in the objectives, and these usually get the best 'What the Hell' moments from the commander since it was obviously your fault, no blaming it on terrorists.

* In most Zelda games, attacking cuckoos will just cause them to kill you. However, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'', Marin would chew you out. 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]].
