*** In Chapter 3's Class Trial, Kokichi gives one to [[spoiler:Himiko]], calling her grief over the recently murdered [[spoiler:Tenko's]] death "BS," and claiming that the former never cared for the latter before the murder. It's implied that he did it to force [[spoiler:Himiko]] to be honest with herself about her feelings, enabling the person in question to mourn the dead after the trial.


-->'''Athena:''' They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but not yours! You never had good intentions, only lies to protect yourself with while blaming another. You, [[spoiler:professor]], are the embodiment of the dark age of the law!

** In the original ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'', in the second chapter, Kiyotaka "Taka" Ishimaru gives one to Mondo Owada, claiming that Mondo's boisterous and violent personality is merely a façade. [[spoiler:It becomes HarsherInHindsight when Mondo's insecurity and personal issues lead to him killing Chihiro in a fit of rage]].
-->'''Kiyotaka''': You ''are'' a coward! That's why you turn to violence to solve your problems! That's why you can't do what society asks of you, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking why you walk around dressed like that]]!
-->'''Mondo''': ...the fuck you say? You dunno shit.
-->'''Kiyotaka''': You already lost to yourself, but you're such a coward, you don't even realize it!
** During the second trial, it's revealed that Toko [[spoiler:is Genocide Jack]], a secret that Toko had confided in Byakuya. Toko is quite upset over Byakuya breaking his promise, but Byakuya replies with the following speech.
-->'''Byakuya''': You have only yourself to blame- you came to me with your tragic little story. I didn't ask you to. [[ThisIsReality This is the real world, not some romantic fantasy fairytale]]. ''(Toko wails)'' Besides, you broke your promise first. You said that as long as you were here, no matter what, you [[spoiler:wouldn't let Genocide Jack kill anyone]]. But in spite of that promise...

** Near the start of the fourth chapter of the first game, Kyoko warns Byakuya that he will eventually regret mocking others for having feelings. During the fourth trial, Byakuya, while otherwise one of the more competent students when it comes to class trials, gets so hung up on the seemingly obvious conclusion that [[spoiler:Aoi betrayed and murdered her best friend, Sakura(helped by Aoi making a FalseConfession)]] that he fails to grasp what really happened- that [[spoiler:Sakura actually [[HeroicSuicide committed suicide]] in an attempt to unite the surviving students]]. Byakuya is completely flabbergasted that Makoto and Kyoko found out the truth when he failed, and Kyoko spells out why.
-->'''Kyoko''': You still haven't realized? We don't all act according to calculations and cost-benefit diagrams. That's what makes us so complicated. That's what you don't understand, and that's why you couldn't solve this case. ''(Byakuya is left speechless)'' See? [[IWarnedYou Didn't I tell you]]? When you dismiss other people's feelings, it'll always come back to bite you in the end.
** ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'': [[TheRival Kokichi]] [[ConsummateLiar Oma]] gives his classmates some pretty brutal ones that manage to [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruct]] the usual ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' rhetoric of using hope, trust, and ThePowerOfFriendship to find the murderer among them. He's not the first to try, but he's the first to do it in a way that the other characters [[JerkassHasAPoint can't counter his argument]].
-->'''Kokichi:''' ''(to everyone)'' You guys talk about cooperation and teamwork, but you're all afraid. You're too scared to point your fingers at others, so you hide behind the word, "trust". How do you expect to find the culprit when you're worried about each other's feelings? If you're planning to expose a liar, you have to corner them psychologically... Only then will they reveal their true self as a liar-- hiding behind a layer of deceit!
** Kokichi gives one to the first killer, who, [[WellIntentionedExtremist faced with the prospect of everyone dying if the time limit passed without a murder happening, tried to kill the mastermind in order to enable everyone to escape]]. While a few characters take umbrage, the killer, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone overcome with remorse]], [[JerkassHasAPoint doesn't argue with Kokichi]].
-->'''Kokichi''': As soon as that thought entered your head, [[UnwittingPawn Monokuma had you right where he wanted]]. Because what mattered most to Monokuma is that the killing game started. Regardless of your reasons, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero the moment you felt the urge to kill, you had already lost]]. You agreed to be part of this killing game when you allowed murder to fill your heart.
** Also from V3, Kaito, a firm believer in ThePowerOfTrust, gives Kokichi one in return in Chapter 4, comparing him to Monokuma.
-->'''Kaito''': Both of you are cowards. You never speak the truth or show your true face. Smiling, putting on a mask, never saying what you really think... That kind of cowardice is just like Monokuma!
** Shuichi also gives one to Kokichi in Chapter 4.
-->'''Shuichi''': Pathetic? Look at yourself, Kokichi. [[TheHeart Kaito]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship always has us by his side, see]]? [[TheFriendNobodyLikes But no one wants to be around you. You're alone, Kokichi. And you always will be]].
** Shuichi also gives one to the mastermind at the end of the killing game, after [[spoiler:convincing the entire audience of the Danganronpa show to give up and stop watching]].
-->'''Shuichi''': You never appreciated us... And it looks like you didn't appreciate the power of fiction! No one wants you anymore! No one wants to hear your sick, twisted stories anymore!

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** In the last case of the last game in the set that features Phoenix as protagonist, [[spoiler: Mia Fey in Pearl's body]] delivers one of these to [[spoiler: Dahlia Hawthorne in Maya's body]]. The speech is so awesome that not only does the witness break down, [[spoiler: she is ''exorcised from Maya's body'' and forced to wander the afterlife forever with the knowledge of her failure.]] The Judge is very impressed. Also, Phoenix joins in on the speech as well. In fact, he's the one who painstakingly outlines exactly ''why'' the witness is such a failure.
** In an earlier case, he'd delivered a scathing assessment of [[spoiler:Luke Atmey]]. It's a bit over-the-top, and ignores some of that person's actual brilliance...but [[IShallTauntYou that was sort of the point]].
** In ''Justice For All'', Phoenix gives one to Edgeworth, letting out all his anger over Edgeworth's sudden disappearance, as well as [[spoiler:being blackmailed into defending Engarde despite having realized that he is the killer]]. On the other hand, it eventually turns out that Phoenix is mistaken about Edgeworth's real reasons for his departure.
-->'''Phoenix:''' [[AmoralAttorney People like you and Franziska von Karma]] are always using all you have to pin me down. You fight to the very end, even when you know the truth is not with you. But I'm not like you. I can't fight for a false verdict -- [[spoiler:for a man I clearly know to be guilty]]!
-->'''Edgeworth:''' ... Franziska... She fights for herself. The only thing she fights for is her perfect win record. That's all.
-->'''Phoenix:''' And!? Isn't that the same as you!? Isn't that why you ran away a year ago? Because your precious win record was destroyed!? You are so petty!
-->'''Edgeworth:''' ... I see... Now I understand why you despise me so. However, you are mistaken.
** Toward the end of the last case of ''Justice for All'', the Judge gives one to [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]]; at that point, it appears that [[spoiler:Engarde]] will get off, but in the process, [[spoiler:his]] past wrongdoing has been exposed.
-->'''Judge:''' To be honest, I can't think of you as a truly innocent and good person. You have done enough evil to [[spoiler:drive a woman to suicide]]. But... [[DamnedByFaintPraise At least on the charge of murder, it would appear you are innocent]].
** In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', late in the second case, as [[spoiler:Alita Tiala]] is getting close to being outed as the real killer, Wocky, the defendant, tries to defend [[spoiler:her]], only for [[spoiler:her]] to tell him that he's a fool for not figuring [[spoiler:her]] out when the evidence was "so obvious. Even for a brainless, spoiled brat such as (Wocky)."
** At the end of the last case in ''Apollo Justice'', Klavier and the Judge deliver one to [[spoiler:Kristoph]], as he rants about how the law is absolute and the new Jurist System cannot be allowed.
-->'''Klavier:''' The law is "absolute"...? You can't be serious.
-->'''[[spoiler:Kristoph]]:''' Wh-What...?
-->'''Klavier:''' Odd. I thought you spent your life looking for loopholes? The law isn't absolute. It's filled with contradictions.
-->'''Judge:''' The law is the end product of many years of history... the fruit of human knowledge! Like a gem, polished to a gleam through trials... and errors. It is this fruit we receive, and pass on, and face in our time. And it is always changing, growing. Nurturing it is our task as human beings.
-->'''Klavier:''' Except for you, [[spoiler:Kristoph]]. You aren't changing. You've stopped. You're not needed anymore.
** In ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'', Athena gives one to [[spoiler:Aristotle Means]], saying that for all [[spoiler:his]] claims of having good intentions, (namely, [[spoiler:teaching students how to effectively defend their clients in the dark age of the law]]), [[spoiler:he's]] nothing more than a {{hypocrite}}, given [[spoiler:his]] trying to ensure that Juniper gets convicted for murder. The point is driven home even further when it later turns out that [[spoiler:Means killed Constance Courte when she found out he was taking bribes]].
-->'''Athena:''' They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but not yours! You never had good intentions, only lies to protect yourself with while blaming another. You, [[spoiler:professor]], are the embodiment of the dark age of the law!
** You are given this [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential as a choice]] during the Logic Chess segment against [[spoiler:Sebastian Debeste]] in the final case of ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Gyakuten Kenji 2]]'' (''Ace Attorney Investigations 2''/"''Prosecutor's Path''"). It can be tempting, considering how much of a [[InsufferableGenius know-it-all]] [[BookDumb know-nothing]] he's been through the whole game. However, [[spoiler:since Sebastian is an emotional wreck at that time, using it will shut him off to answering anything else entirely and blow your entire timer gauge, which [[VideoGameCrueltyPunishment shaves off a part of the Truth meter]]]].
