* Inverted in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''; Richard (a card-carrying 'joyfully and creatively ChaoticEvil' character' with centuries of continuous evil) get a 'what the hell antihero' reaction from hell because by killing/burning an entire village he ACCIDENTALLY did some potential good to the future of the region. This is the only part where we see Richard having a conscience (only he's guilty of doing GOOD)

** Miko Miyazaki gets so many of these that one [[SarcasmMode might suspect]] that Rich Burlew has a serious [[AuthorTract bone to pick]] with characters (in [=RPGs=] or in real life) who twist the rules of law and good so far to meet their own desired ends that they appear evil to anyone else.

** A recent strip subverts it beautifully, with LawfulGood Roy deciding to use ChaoticEvil HeroicComedicSociopath Belkar as live bait to "guide" the giant sandworm they used as an impromptu transportation method. Belkar starts off CallingTheHeroOut, then breaks into laughter, claims he almost managed to go through that with a straight face, and tells them to "dangle (him) away".

* In ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'', Summer gets [[http://eheroes.smackjeeves.com/comics/1880935/no-tool-like-an-old-tool/ chewed out by Ben Sharpley]] for not learning how to use or control her powers properly.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Ellen gives Justin [[DeathGlare a stink eye]] and a [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1211 vicious chewing-out]] after he [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1208 snapped at Elliot]] for even ''daring'' to look at things from Melissa's perspective -- she makes it clear that while his grudge is understandable, snapping at his friends when they only have his best interests at heart is unacceptable
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-03-30 Then there's his Yoda t-shirt that basically says that while he had a right to be disappointed in Melissa, he was taking the whole thing a bit to far.]]

** Celesto is more this trope than Dominic ever was. He never turns evil, but the civilian body count that he racks from his self-righteousness makes him WORSE.

* What's the best way to start DivideAndConquer strategy? Webcomic/TheCrossoverlord says: Tell TheCape about [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl's]] ShootTheDog moment and watch him giving her WhatTheHellHero speech.

* Meighan and Alisin do it to each other in a ''{{Fans}}!'' story, in which they argue about an earlier occasion when the latter seduced the former to try and provoke a BreakHisHeartToSaveHim situation with Rikk when she was dying (which didn't work, but caused no degree of tension following that). Meighan points out, not without merit, that Alisin has no place to hold a grudge since she was the one who did the seducing and Meighan was the one being manipulated. Alisin, equally with merit, points out that she was quite visibly in a bad place at the time and not thinking clearly, what with the whole "impending death" thing, and that Meighan should have resisted more than she did. The two eventually accept that the other has a valid point and bury the hatchet.
* [[http://www.theappleofdiscord.com The Apple of Discord]] had a moment of this recently where Steve (who was in a coma from 1993 to 2008) finds out that main character Arthur was the one who accidentally put him in the coma in the first place. Then he finds out that, in trying to fix the coma situation, Art's summoning spell backfired and is slowly causing reality to collapse.
* ''FarOutThere'' had Layla [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1028453/page-89-one-more-twist-for-the-road do this]] to Ichabod upon realizing [[spoiler: she could have been killed because he wouldn't own up to a simple mistake.]]
* In ''KevinAndKell'', it's revealed that Rudy never sent Kevin and Kell's marriage papers as a bill banning interspecies marriage is up for voting, which would also threaten their marriage. Rudy claims he was bitter about Kevin becoming alpha male, and didnít think there would be any consequences, and Lindesfarne notes that now all interspecies marriages are at risk, with the potential slippery slope to eventually prevent him from marrying Fiona.
* Igor of ''DorkTower'' combines this with NoFourthWall in [[http://www.dorktower.com/2006/11/17/comics-archive-858/ an epic rant against New Line Cinema.]]
* Stein of ''FrankieAndStein'' gets a good one [[http://frankieandstein.com/2012/02/29/page-40/ here]] after [[spoiler: creating his FrankensteinsMonster, Frankie, from the aforementioned reanimated dead. Concerning taking a random brain and stuffing it in some poor girl's body, without even asking!]]
* ''TheLastMysticalLegendOfTheFantasticFantasyTriggerStar'''s story is entirely written around this. Breadbun being an obvious case of GuiltByAssociation.
