** Encapsulated in Return of the Shirt. Ted decides that he wants to get back together with an old flame, Natalie, conveniently forgetting how he hurt her in their breakup. He finds her address and shows up uninvited, refusing to leave even when she slams the door in his face, and eventually browbeats her into giving him another chance. Within a week, he's decided he doesn't like her anymore and breaks up with her...on her birthday...again. While he gets (comically) beaten up for dumping her, the show displays no concern about how he harassed her into accepting.

* Cody on ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' to Gwen, although he eventually decides IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy when she hooks up with his friend Trent.

* The most famous and deliberately over-the-top example is probably cartoon character WesternAnimation/PepeLePew, whose main problem is not understanding that, as a [[TalkingAnimal skunk]], he smells ''bad'' (when he did in 1959's "Really Scent," he corrected the problem, [[GiftOfTheMagiPlot only to have the cat go to a Limburger factory to make herself smell bad]]). Chuck Jones (the director who created Pepe) based Pepe Le Pew on fellow Termite Terrace writer, Ted Pierce, who was notorious for hitting on women and often forgetting to shower after a night of partying.

* Subverted in ''Film/{{Stoker}}''. Whip seems to have a small crush on India, and doesn't participate when his friends bully her. India, for her part, doesn't seem to notice or care about his feelings at first, but later kisses him. [[spoiler:But when she tries to excuse herself from their date/makeout session, he refuses to let her leave, and attempts to rape her, claiming she "opened this door."]]

** The good doctor also has [[http://www.doctornerdlove.com/pass-grimes-test/ The Grimes Test]], in which "Grimes" is a kaiju who respects basic decency of women, then asks "so what do you have going for you that Grimes doesn't?" The doctor ends with a note saying that [[WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency there are no prizes for meeting minimum standards]].

* ''Film/LadyOfTheNight'': "Chunky", who pretty much knows that Molly isn't as in to him as he is in to her, but doesn't care. (She smacks him when he tries to dance cheek to cheek.) It's one of the more positive examples of this trope, as he is willing to put her first and step aside if David got serious about Molly. And he's rewarded in the end, as Molly, who recognizes that Chunky cares about her even if she isn't in love with him, agrees to marry him and go away.

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'':
** Wesley, as creepily as the show can manage. When he's not being turned into a misogynist rage monster and attacking Fred, he's casually dropping death threats to Gunn, his romantic rival.
** Doyle to Cordelia.
