** This happens to Sora in ''{{Chain of Memories}}''…And he's called out by Vexen of all people, who tries to convince him that [[spoiler:his memories are being changed to turn him into a puppet, and failing that tells Sora he has no right to be called a hero or a Keyblade Master if he's so easily manipulated. Likewise, Larxene calls out Naminé for suddenly appearing to be ready to sacrifice herself to save Sora, despite being threatened into doing the memory manipulation only a short while before (is it becoming clear why Nobodies make such great villains yet?).]]

* Many games that [[KarmaMeter keep track of your character's morality]] will punish you with a DownerEnding for being too evil, but ''OgreBattle 64'' really takes it up a notch. If you recruited too many chaotic characters and captured, rather than liberated many towns before killing the BigBad, you get [[spoiler:a "bonus" mission]] in which the protagonists of the original ''OgreBattle'' call you out and [[spoiler:try to kill you for being a JerkAss, and you're forced to kill them]]. Then you get the [[DownerEnding very worst possible ending]]. Alternatively, you can lose the battle, and rather than kill you, the heroes of the original game allow you to join them on a new mission to atone for your sins. ** ''TacticsOgre'' also has several, especially if Denim takes the Lawful route, where nearly every battle in Chapter 2 consisted of enemy leaders calling Denim out on [[spoiler:his participation in the Baramus Massacre.]] In the chaotic route, taking the more morally sound route, Denim still gets chastised for [[spoiler:trying to keep his hands clean of the atrocities the WLA commit for the betterment of their country]] -- but continuing to kill people through warfare for the sake of romantic idealism. And of course, in the Neutral Route, a character defects because Denim has proven to be wishy-washy. Lovely.

** Hawke can also receive some milder examples for actions that aren't particularly evil but are still kind of dickish. For example, if you pick the Snarky option while [[spoiler:the Viscount]] is cradling the body of his dead son, Aveline will call you an ass.

* The Tunnel Man exists in ''{{Spelunky}}'' to help build tunnels that act as [[DungeonBypass shortcuts]] to the other stages in the game, a very helpful feature in a roguelike where it's ridiculously easy to die. He sits in his own little corner in the pregame lobby, and there's [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential nothing stopping you from walking over to him and giving him a sound thrashing with your whip.]] Talking to him afterwards has him call you out on your behaviour.

* In ''VideoGame/YoKaiWatch'', if you choose not to follow traffic laws, Whisper will warn you. If you still choose not to? [[spoiler:Snartle will appear, and will be guaranteed to easily defeat your team until you're in the post game having an S-Rank watch.]]

* ''TheWitcher'' involves making choices which will severely alienate at least half of your hero's acquaintances, resulting in a "What the Hell" speech from at least ''somebody'' -- most significantly, [[spoiler:you can join the paramilitary bigots who slay monsters, but who also subjugate the "lesser races" (alienating your "lower-class" friends) or join the resistance to these oppressors, themselves so embittered at human rule that they have no problem with human collateral damage (alienating your "upper-class" friends.]] You can take a neutral path, largely pacifying your friends, but alienating a;most everyone else on your journey.

* In LANoire, Cole Phelps [[spoiler:commits adultery with a club jazz singer]], an action that earns him a demotion to the Arson desk and some pretty nasty comments from colleagues and passerby. Despite earlier remarks about morality and [[spoiler:fidelity]], Cole [[spoiler:makes little attempt to reconcile with his wife and eventually leaves her and his daughters for Elsa without any apparent remorse. Though he still wears his wedding band.]] Classy.

* In ''{{Homeworld}} Cataclysm'', the [[ProudMerchantRace Bentusi]] freak out when the [[TheVirus Beast]] infests one of their tradeships and decide to flee ''en masse'' to another galaxy via a giant [[OurWormholesAreDifferent slipgate]]. Your fleet has to rush the gate and blow it up before too many tradeships escape, while the freaked out Bentusi pound your fleet for all they're worth (they're a HigherTechSpecies, by the way, so you don't stand a chance). Eventually, as your fleet is being reduced to rubble, you call them out on for their cowardice. ''Slightly'' ashamed, they let you go and agree to help when the time comes; they also help you fix the one weapon that might destroy the Beast. During the FinalBattle, a Bentusi tradeship appears and gives you the plans to their SpaceFighter capable of BeamSpam and immediately jumps away.

* Mediocre game ''{{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.]]

This is what happens when you try to edit on a laptop with a touchpad. You end up hitting save instead of preview ._.
