* Ric Flair went into Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s ''Wrestlemania 24'' about 10 years past his prime, rapidly decaying in the ring, and laboring under a decree from VinceMcMahon that meant that the next match he lost would be his last. Knowing this, he challenged Shawn "Mr. ''Wrestlemania''" Michaels to a match at the show. And when Michaels showed pity for his opponent in a promo a couple of weeks before the show and hinted that he might not bring his A-game, Flair called him out on it, demanding that Shawn give him everything he has, because, win or lose, he wanted to come out of the show with his honor and integrity intact.

** The whole situation was then given an IronicEcho treatment two years later, when Shawn was trying to end TheUndertaker's undefeated-at-Wrestlemania streak because, as he said, "If I can't do this, I don't ''have'' a career any more." At one point, Shawn was pulling himself up to his knees, using Taker as the ladder, and you could hear him yell "Stay! Down!" Shawn played this trope to the hilt by [[BerserkButton mocking Taker with his own signature throat-slit taunt and then slapping him in the face]]. The match ended very quickly after that.

** Mai Tokiha, ''especially'' struggles with this quite a bit. While she is quick to help others in the manga.need (stemming from [[MyGreatestFailure a tragic incident from her youth]] that led to her mother's death and her brother's [[IllGirl illness]]), she is even quicker to push away help when ''she'' needs it to avoid being seen as weak.



* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': This seems to be the whole reason [[TheRival Katsuki Bakugou]] hates the main character, Izuku Midoriya. Being looked down by someone he viewed as a no-good weakling triggered a massive InferioritySuperiorityComplex on him.

* The titular protagonist of ''WesternAnimation/{{Pelswick}}'' hates it when other people express pity for him for being in a wheelchair, mainly because he's completely self-sufficient and not nearly as much of a burden as people make him feel like. Their pity usually actually makes things worse for him, such as preventing him from going on a camping trip for little reason or getting his crush suspended. Somewhat ironically, when Boyd is temporarily confined to a wheelchair, Pelswick feels sorry for him, and this is Boyd's reaction too.
