** Nick also later hands one of these to Judy herself when she makes some InnocentlyInsensitive remarks about the feral predators in an interview and then tries to pull an InnocentBigot variant of YouAreACreditToYourRace on him.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Steven delivers one to [[spoiler:Lapis]], who has been...''indisposed'' throughout an entire [[HeelFaceTurn redemption arc]] and spends the entire episode furious at the newly redeemed character for past actions: major themes are "get to know her" and "give her a chance", and it seems to work to a degree. He also delivered several during that redemption arc, although [[spoiler:Peridot's]] status as a hero was dubious at best during most of that time.

** Garnet gives a huge one to [[spoiler: Pearl]] when she finds out that the latter has been [[spoiler: repeatedly fixing the communication hub just to continue fusing with Garnet, due to the PowerHigh she gets when they form Sardonyx]]. Garnet is ''extremely'' '''''furious''''' with [[spoiler: Pearl]] for her actions, that they don't speak for a long while, and it takes a few episodes for them to finally patch things up.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheKillingJoke'': The film is riddled with these, leading to complaints from fans. From out of character moments like [[spoiler: Batman/Batgirl sex scene]], to Batgirl straight up attacking some guy on the street [[spoiler: Just for breaking up with his girlfriend]].

* A more realistic example is displayed in ''[[{{Sixteen}} 6Teen]]'', when in one episode, the six characters tell each other their most embarrassing secrets. Caitlin blabs to her boyfriend all their secrets with the exception of hers, explaining that she couldn't ruin their relationship. When said boyfriend becomes hypnotized and blabs to the entire mall about it, her friends, as expected, were not too happy with her.

** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'': In the episode "In Charm's Way," after Kevin spends the entire episode being a {{Jerkass}} to Gwen, believing that she hasn't even been trying to find a way to fix his [[BalefulPolymorph most recent mutation]], Ben hits him with one of these, not only informing him that Gwen has in fact been spending every spare moment since the accident occurred trying to find a cure for him, but for just automatically assuming that Gwen ''wasn't'' trying to help him in the first place:
-->'''Kevin''': She... she never told me.\\
'''Ben''': Should she have ''had'' to?

* The second season of the 90s ''{{WesternAnimation/Iron Man}}'' cartoon starts with Tony faking his death as part of a plan to stop the Mandarin. [[WeWouldHaveToldYouBut He doesn't let any of his friends in on it so their grief will convince the villains he's really dead.]] All but two of the supporting cast (Rhodey and [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Julia]]) walk out on him in disgust, and even the two who stay make it clear he crossed a line.
* In ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'', Rhodey calls Tony out in one episode for being willing to use lethal force on people and justifying it with a 'whatever it takes' mindset. Rhodey points out to Tony how that attitude makes him exactly like the people he's fighting and that it's beginning to look like Tony's out for revenge instead of saving lives, which was his original motivation. Tony doesn't respond, but instead the two have a non-verbal glare-down as the episode ends, indicating that Rhodey's words probably struck a little too close to home.

* ''WesternAnimation/IronMan''
** The season 1 finale had Tony Stark use a robot duplicate (while he himself was disguised as a bridesmaid) to fake a wedding to Julia Carpenter for the purpose of throwing the Mandarin off his trial and convince him that Tony and Iron Man were separate people. However, he decided to not tell the ComicBook/ScarletWitch about it, who wasn't happy about being left out of the loop.

** Season 2 also adapted the classic "Armor Wars" arc, wherein Tony realizes that his technology has been stolen and goes to extremes to stop its use by criminals' hands, and everyone giving him crap for his action. The two-parter had a two-for-one from Julia, who revealed she was no more happy about the wedding stunt in Season 1 than Wanda was.

** In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episode "Let's Get Serious", Aqualad of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' gives Robin the riot act over their immaturity and mockery of heroism. What hurts them the most is that his assessment is ''right'' as Cyborg and Beast Boy go gaa-gaa over the idea of a pie-eating contest and Starfire and Raven free Jinx to have a girl's night out.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' episode "The Fugitives", the three heroines give this to Jerry in spades while pelting him with snowballs. (His apology for not believing their innocence and trying to capture them and apply brain surgery to stop them - they didn't seem willing to accept it yet.)
