'''Basic Trope''': A character gives another character a speech in which they delineates all of their flaws.
* '''Straight''': Bob gives Alice a speech on why she is a failure.
* '''Exaggerated''': Bob gives Alice a very, very long, detailed speech that carries on for hours and hours, describing every failure she's made in her life.
* '''Downplayed''': Bob notes that Alice is "kind of a bitch," but doesn't really go much further.
* '''Justified''':
** Bob frequently [[BrutalHonesty speaks his mind bluntly]] and he just saw Alice doing something stupid.
** [[{{Jerkass}} Alice]] always picks on Bob, [[TheDogBitesBack who finally speaks out against her]].
* '''Inverted''':
** [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre Bob gives Alice a speech on why she is better than she thinks she is]].
** Bob tells Alice everything that is great about her, and [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame she feels horrible about it]].
** Bob starts to rant at Alice, only to slowly realize that he is NotSoDifferent than Alice and has a HeelRealization. He may decide to reform himself after this revelation.
* '''Subverted''':
** IHaveJustOneThingToSay
** Alice actually takes pride in everything Bob criticizes her for, and it turns into one gigantic InsultBackfire.
* '''Double Subverted''': Bob's speech starts off listing Alice's flaws, but then he starts praising her...before going right back to conclude that she's still a horrible person.
* '''Parodied''': Bob gives a [[SelfDemonstrating/GLaDOS passive-agressive]] speech that involves lots of egregious things and ArsonMurderAndJaywalking.
* '''Zig Zagged''': ???
* '''Averted''': Bob and Alice have an ordinary, non-judgmental conversation.
* '''Enforced''': "The MoralDissonance is getting out of hand. Find some way to [[WhatTheHellHero chew Alice out for all the bad stuff she's done]]."
* '''Lampshaded''': "Wow. [[SarcasmMode Tell her how you really feel, Bob.]]"
* '''Invoked''': Alice is [[BatmanGambit trying]] to put Bob into a sense of [[WhatTheHellHero moral outrage]] to snap him out of his HeroicBSOD.
* '''Exploited''': Alice knows that Bob loves this trope, so she waits until he gets into his speech [[CombatPragmatist before launching a sneak-attack]].
* '''Defied''': ShutUpHannibal[=/=]ShutUpKirk
* '''Discussed''': "Ow. Alice must feel bad about all that."
* '''Conversed''': Alice and Charlie debate whether using emotional and verbal warfare is a valid and/or effective battle tactic.
* '''Deconstructed''':
** The speech causes Alice to snap and suffer an HeroicBSOD.
** Bob gives Alice a speech about her flaws which then angers Alice who then gives Bob a speech on his own similar flaws, telling him that [[NotSoDifferent he's no better and thus has no right or position to be so judgmental of her]].
** Bob is [[MadeOutToBeAJerkass given a lot of criticism himself for calling out Alice in such a way that set her in a depressed state]].
** The speech causes Alice to [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown severely break every bone of Bob's body]], [[CantTakeCriticism showing no remorse for her actions]].
** Alice is Bob's boss, so his speech prompts her to cut his paycheck and demote him.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** ...But, although shaken, she takes Bob's criticisms to heart and becomes a better person. Because of this, she gains Bob's respect.
** Bob comes to the terms that he and Alice are NotSoDifferent after all, and they both [[FireForgedFriends made an agreement to help each other overcome their flaws]].
** Bob explains to them why it had happened and reminds them of her actions.
** Alice gets charged for assault and battery, goes to a mental asylum, and/or alienates her colleagues.
** Bob quits his job and finds work where his [[BenevolentBoss boss treats him a lot better]].
* '''Played For Drama''':
** Alice is the '[[TalkToTheFist talk shit, get hit]]' type of people, so when Bob tears into her, she hands his ass to him. Afterwards, Bob [[WasItReallyWorthIt questions]] if his little tirade, no matter how justified, was worth getting his face caved in.
