** In another episode, he feels quite put upon for being made to apologise for ''infecting Kyle with [=AIDs=]''. Kyle however snaps and begins a more proportionate restitution of tearing apart his room.

* Has happened from time to time in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. One example that jumps to mind was when Harry spent the entire fifth book as the subject of a propagandic smear campaign from the Ministry of Magic, making him a social outcast and hated by the wizard community. And he's tortured by a sadistic Ministry garrison at Hogwarts. When he proves himself right and is a public hero again, the new Minister of Magic (who appears to have done bugger-all to improve the Ministries methods), offers him a chance to "be friends," so he can look good by leeching off Hary's great PR. Harry is quite pissed, particularly when he sees that the aforementioned sadist still had her job. [[spoiler: He does, however, refuse to give up Harry's location when the Death Eaters torture him for it, and they subsequently torture him ''to death''.]]

* Eric Cartman in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' once tried to make up for all the bad things he did because he thought that he had died, and could only reach heaven through redemption. His big idea: make everyone a fruit basket. This included Scott Tenorman, the surviving victim of Eric's crossing of the MoralEventHorizon.[[note]]How did Eric not go to jail for that, after gloating about it in front of the whole town?[[/note]] A fruit basket with an 'I'm sorry' card, that's it.

child even though the death was clearly an accident, accident and he offered offers him money -- around 10 million. Double subverted when the associate is at first insulted for having a price placed on his son's life, then accepts when the prince offers him a career-making deal in apology.

Added DiffLines:

**Actually, in the same episode, he did fix someone's fence that he broke and didn't tell the person who owned it, so, in this case, this trope may be subverted.
