* In the Creator/HumphreyBogart UsefulNotes/WorldWarII movie ''Sahara'', the tank crew abandons an Italian soldier taken prisoner in the war in the middle of the desert, citing a lack of resources. They go back for him, but not before heartlessly driving off and condemning him to what would be a painful, slow death.

* ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'': Both Mars and Uranus are extremely dismissive of Earth's steadily increasing fear and requests for help as a meteor hurtles towards her, with Uranus outright ''walking off and leaving her there alone'' as it's about to crash into her. In fairness to them, it was the first comic and there was some EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, with Mars gaining [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold a heart of gold later]] and Uranus never showing that much detachment and apathy towards other people again.

laws. [[ArtisticLicenseLaw Of course, in reality "Good Samaritan Laws", rather than requiring people to put themselves in harms way or face legal penalties, do almost the exact opposite: protecting people who make a good faith effort to help others in an emergency (like trying to perform CPR without being trained) from being sued for damages if they end up doing more harm than good]].

* One of the most famous examples is the titular character in the ''Franchise/SpiderMan'' franchise. In most incarnations, upon receiving his powers, Spider-Man tried to figure out how best to exploit them for profit and, while walking through a TV Studio, ignored a burglar running past (and a security guard's calls for him to help), dismissing the incident as "not his problem", given that he wasn't in the business of fighting crime. In a particularly brutal instance of LaserGuidedKarma, the burglar kills his Uncle Ben that very night.
