* Inverted in ''Series/{{Slasher}}''. When [[BigBad the Executioner]] reveals to Sarah that [[spoiler:he's been obsessed with her ever since they first met when she was a teenager]], Sarah replies that she has no memory of it and for her it was just a Saturday. She does, however, remember [[AndThisIsFor all the people murdered by the Executioner]].

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': An odd example: the demon Sahjahn spends a good chunk of the third season working against Angel, but when the two finally meet, Angel has no idea why Sahjahn hates him, driving the latter to disappear in fury. Of course, Angel was a bit justified in this: Sahjahn's beef was a ''future'' event that Sahjahn knew about from a prophecy. [[spoiler:A prophecy that he had even ''rewritten himself'' centuries before, so it was basically impossible for Angel to know about it]]. Granted, existing outside of time might mess with his perceptions a bit, but, really, Sahjahn's expectations just seem a little high.
** Played straight with Holtz, whose children were just two more run-of-the-mill victims for Angelus.

*** This happens often with Spike in season 7 of ''Buffy'' and season 5 of ''Angel''. He'll be honestly trying to help someone, and the rescuee wants nothing to do with him because he murdered their family--something Spike has no memory of.
*** In a different subversion, Spike is captured and tortured by a crazed Slayer who believes that Spike killed her parents. It is later confirmed that Spike was not responsible, but it doesn't make him feel any better about it, since he's killed so many people that it's not much of a consolation that he wasn't responsible for these ''particular'' deaths.

of. In a different subversion, Spike is captured and tortured by a crazed Slayer who believes that Spike killed her parents. It is later confirmed that one case, Spike was not ''not'' responsible, but it doesn't make him feel any better about it, since he's killed so many people that it's not much of a consolation that he wasn't responsible for these ''particular'' deaths.

* ''Series/Underground: In the episode "Firefly", John Macon says this about Josey, a runaway slave: "the worst day of that man's life was just another Tuesday in the office for me." Subverted in a sense because this isn't a villain being indifferent to his victims' suffering but a moment of shame for me.

* On ''Series/{{Lucifer]],'' a pick-up artist who regularly lectures on how best to bed a woman finds himself falling in love with one for real. When she's kidnapped, he begs Lucifer to save her only to find she set the kidnapping up. It turns out she fell for his lines ''two years'' earlier and gave up her virginity to him but he never called her back. When she heard of his act, she went to see him only to realize that he literally didn't remember her. She thus decided to get him to fall in love with her for some payback and it escalated. Unlike many in this trope, the pick-up artist is deeply shaken to realize he slept with so many women he could forget the one he eventually fell for.
