* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', Shinji keeps doing this and his habit keeps driving Asuka crazy. In chapter 9:
-->'''Asuka:''' Why does everything have to take so long with you, Third Child?\\
'''Shinji:''' Sorry.\\
'''Asuka:''' Dammit, don't do that. It bothers me and you know it.\\
'''Shinji:''' Sorry\\
'''Asuka:''' You know, I'm starting to think you do it on purpose. Nobody could be so dense.\\
'''Misato:''' Asuka, stop picking on him. It's just his conditioned response, like a defense.

* Mikan Tsumiki in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' lives and breathes this trope. [[spoiler: It gets a hell of a lot darker at the end of the third trial, where she begs for forgiveness over the fact that she killed two students.]]

** Some people with UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome are known to do this. It makes sense: if you're [[ParanoiaFuel never truly sure if any remark you made is]] InnocentlyInsensitive or [[DiggingYourselfDeeper worse]], it's easy to start dropping apologies just in case.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/TheHatingGirl'', Asumi has a tendency to loudly and vigorously apologize whenever she thinks she's offended someone, prostrating herself on the ground and usually saying she's lower than a drone beetle in the process. This is pretty frequent at the start of the manga but decreases as she becomes more sure of herself.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheGoblinEmperor'', the problem is not so much that Maia apologizes too much, the problem is that he apologizes to the servants. Which is highly inappropriate. Though to be fair, as he is emperor, it is not strictly speaking anyone's place to criticise him for it. One of his bodyguards ''looks'' very disapproving, though.

* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'':
** Shinji keeps this habit after Third Impact. At the beginning of the story Asuka explains why she hates his excuses:
--->"Let me remind you of something, idiot," she sneered. "You owe me. That angel defiled me, the commander threw me away, Misato abandoned me, and those fucking Evas..." she laughed shortly. "All of that, and you didn't do a thing to help. Not one goddamn thing."\\
"I'm sorry—" he began.\\
She squeezed harder, and he yelped. "I don't want your fucking apologies, Third Child. 'I'm sorry' doesn't do me a bit of good, y'know? It's useless. Instead, I want someone I can rely on. Someone who can help me out. And there's no one else here, so that someone is you, get it?" He nodded, trying not to whimper. "So get your shit together, or I swear to God I'll make you regret it."
** He keeps doing it when [[spoiler:Asuka dies]]. He apologizes to her, to Ryuko…
** [[spoiler:His daughter]] does the same thing when she realizes she has done something wrong.

* Someone made a {{Supercut}} of every time [[Series/DoctorWho the Tenth Doctor]] says "Sorry" throughout his 47-episode tenure. The final count: ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHVW-S9JkKA 120]]''. PlayedForDrama to an extent, however, as a lot of his apologies are because something has either GoneHorriblyWrong [[OhCrap or is about to]].



* In the beginning of ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'', Stefan seems to be saying sorry to Elena for every other thing

Added DiffLines:

* Someone speaking their second language is also likely to apologize often - "sorry" and "excuse me" can be quick shorthands if you're not sure exactly how to be polite and have a limited vocabulary.
