* "WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom": In Control Freaks, we are introduced to Sam's parents whom are cheery and super-optimistic; however, they possess an enormous disdain for their daughter Sam's gothic style and nonconformity to their outlook on life. Suffice it to say, they didn't see eye to eye with their daughter. Also, they were quick to assume that Danny was a bad influence on Sam, and thus eventually had to get a restraining order against him.
-->'''Woman on TV:''' Up next, is your teenage daughter moody, surly, is her outlook on life blacker than her eyeliner? (Sam blinks and glances at her parents, who glare suspiciously at her.) Take an active interest in your child. Know who her friends are. Learn to recognize a bad influence when it walks in your door.
-->(Danny comes in through the door with CDs.)'''Danny:''' Hey Sam, I got that Morbid Anti-social Youth CD you wanted. (Sam's parents glare at Danny.) What? Have you heard "My Parents Reek"? That cut rocks!

* In''Manga/FairyTail'', when Jackal, one of the many villains capable of actually killing another character, comes to assassinate a former councilor, just about no one cares. He sets explosions off all over the town just to piss the heroes off, and when his target runs away in the next chapter, it can be seen that ''no one did anything.

* The vampires at the center of ''Literature/((Twilight))''. On its own this wouldn't be so bad since it's clearly established that there's another group in place whose job it is to police the vampire population. But on the other hand we have [[WordOfGod the author saying]] that the Cullens are a lot like superheroes and the narration telling us they're "committed to protecting human life," while again and again we only see them reacting to danger when they themselves or someone they have a personal interest in is imperiled.
