'''Basic Trope''': The hero gets called out for acting like a bad guy.
* '''Straight''': TheHero attempts to [[ShootTheDog Shoot A Dog]] and his teammates object.
* '''Exaggerated''': The action was so heinous, [[EvenEvilHasStandards that even the big bad calls him out]].
* '''Downplayed''':
** TheHero [[FelonyMisdemeanor steals a cookie from the cookie jar]] and gets scolded over it.
** The teammates don't straight-up yell at the hero for his actions or even act cold with him, but they were a little disappointed in him nonetheless.
* '''Justified''':
** If the Hero hadn't been called out, he would have kept sliding down the slippery slope.
** Up until now, the Hero has been a paragon of justice and humanity, so this act is surprising to his teammates, who can't help but wonder.
* '''Inverted''':
** YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame. TheHero does something awful, but rather than be called out for it, someone ([[BigBad the villain]] or TheRival) says "Way to go!" which causes the Hero to regret his actions.
** The villain or TokenEvilTeammate [[PetTheDog Pets The Dog]], which comes so out of left field that no one can help but point it out.
** The TokenEvilTeammate scolds the hero for doing good deeds.
* '''Subverted''':
** The hero has a perfectly good justification for [[ShootTheDog what he did]], and the one calling him out retracts his complaint.
** ArsonMurderAndLifesaving.
** The one doing the calling out is revealed to be TheMole, causing the hero to dismiss the callout as psychological warfare.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** The hero has a justification for [[DirtyBusiness what he did]]... but after hearing it, the one calling him out ''still'' says he shouldn't have done it.
** VillainHasAPoint, forcing the hero to still take the callout seriously regardless of its source.
* '''Parodied''': The hero [[PokeThePoodle Pokes The Poodle]], and [[DisproportionateRetribution everyone forms an angry mob over it.]]
* '''Zig Zagged''':
** The objector tends to overreact to the smallest thing; however, when the hero commits a ''truly'' horrible act, he's the only one to call him out. The hero justifies his actions with IDidWhatIHadToDo, which the objector agrees with... until pointing out [[TakeAThirdOption there was another way]]. Said option ''was'' workable, but involved massive risk and could have resulted in HeroicSacrifice; it's left unanswered whether the hero's solution was more pragmatic or not.
** The objector calls out the hero arbitrarily, so it's impossible to tell whether it's out of moral objection or something else.
* '''Averted''':
** TheHero does his immoral act and [[MoralDissonance no one complains]].
** TheHero commits no reprehensible acts.
* '''Enforced''': "We must create tension. Quick, call him out for doing something bad!"
* '''Lampshaded''': "Aw, man! This is gonna be one of those talks where you guys yell at me for needless property damage again, isn't it?"
* '''Invoked''': TheHero specifically selects a [[TheLancer Lancer]] who will call him out so as to prevent himself from falling freely to evil.
* '''Exploited''': The BigBad plans for TheMole to call out TheHero over something at just the right moment to cast doubts and weaken his HeroicSpirit so that the BigBad can take advantage.
* '''Defied''':
** The DesignatedHero surrounds himself with yes-men who will not complain about his actions.
** TheHero, before undertaking any DirtyBusiness, talks with his team about it ''before'' going through with it.
** ShutUpKirk
** "How dare [[{{Hypocrite}} you]] stand there and think that you're in any position to judge me! After all, [[NotSoDifferent haven't you done as many questionable things as I have]]?
* '''Discussed''': "Ugh, TheHero might be "good and all", but you ''know'' he's going to slip up and we are ''not'' going to let him get away with it then."
* '''Conversed''': "Finally! Someone called out the hero for being a douche."
%%* '''Deconstructed''':???
%%* '''Reconstructed''':???
* '''Played For Laughs''': TheHero was caught jaywalking in the street, and everyone, [[EvenEvilHasStandards and even the]] BigBad chastised him for it.
* '''Played For Drama''':
** TheHero got into a HeroicBSOD, and got [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone lead to a big]] GuiltComplex since [[HeWhoFightsMonsters he did something he was up against.]] Eventually leading TheHero to a DespairEventHorizon.
** Because TheHero keeps getting called out for what he does, he becomes convinced that he is a HeroWithAnFInGood. This leads him to give up heroing and either retire or do a FaceHeelTurn.
