* ''Black Hole Rising'' packs a number in:
** Tanks!!!: [[MilitaryMaverick Grit]] explaining to [[SmugSnake Adder]] that yes, he isn't particularly loyal to Blue Moon and yes, he doesn't care much about what land belongs to which country. But the destruction of cities and killing of civilians is ''unforgivable''.
** Duty and Honour: Black Hole has set up laser cannons around several strategically unimportant Yellow Comet cities which are under siege. Kanbei knows it's a trap, but [[HonorBeforeReason goes in anyway]] because it is his duty to protect the people of Yellow Comet.
--> [=COs=] don't sit idly by and watch their people be destroyed! Even if it's a trap. Even if it's strategically unimportant.
* Hawke or Jake shooting Von Bolt's chair in ''Dual Strike'', forcing him to live out the rest of his life under his own power... [[CruelMercy which probably won't be very long]]. Jake's line after doing so is pretty good:
--> You don't get to die while the rest of us clean up your mess!
* ''Days of Ruin'' has several as well:
** [[SmugSnake Waylon]] claims that [[WideEyedIdealist Will]] only helps people [[NotSoDifferent because it makes him feel important]], and that [[AtLeastIAdmitIt at least he is honest about doing what he does for personal gain]]. Will responds that he might be right, in that he does it because he wants to, just like Waylon likes to "fly around and act like a jerk" because he wants too, but if he saves even one life, it is worth it. This prompts Waylon to call him a "little sack of crap". This marks a clear moment in Will's CharacterDevelopment, and of course, he got TheDragon to call him a little sack of crap.
** Lin receives one of her own after defeating Admiral Greyfield in battle, while confronting him. He surrenders out of desperation, and claims that as he is now a prisoner of war, if she kills him out of revenge, she will [[NotSoDifferent be the same as him]] (as their original rebellion was caused by this same crime). Her response?
-->'''Lin''': I guess you're right. *Gunshot SFX*
** Caulder of all people gets one, when he gives a 'vaccine' to the [[BitchInSheepsClothing Mayor]] after he sells out all of his people to Caulder and attempts a HeelFaceTurn. The awesome part? [[spoiler: It turns out it was actually a dose of the virus, and the Mayor dies a [[KarmicDeath painful, ironic, and well-deserved death]].]]
