* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', Scott Lang/Ant-Man gets extremely annoyed when Tony Stark has no idea who he is, considering Scott helped save the day in ''Film/AntMan''. (That said, Ant-Man is a relative newcomer to the superhero community at that point, so he's pretty small-time.)



* ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'':
** Regarding Jane Foster's motivation in ''Film/{{Thor}}'', her actress, [[http://www.tribute.ca/news/index.php/black-swans-natalie-portman-flies-high-with-your-highness-and-thor/2011/03/17/ Natalie Portman]], explained that her theories about connecting dimensions have her being looked down by the scientific community. [[spoiler: If the post-credits scene is anything to go by, she finally got it]].
--> '''Natalie Portman:''' Everyone thinks she’s on the fringe of science and that she’s this kook, so this is her opportunity to prove herself.

* Part of Newt's rant in ''Film/PacificRimUprising'' [[spoiler:as he reveals himself to be the BigBad]] is about how people never gave him any respect. [[spoiler:Although due to the level of alien influence he's under, he keeps shifting between first- and third-person pronouns.]]

* ''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'': It doesn't matter how Naofumi saves Melromac- The three other heroes and the ruling family still find reasons to hate him. (Although it's also kinda averted because people like Raphtalia are grateful for the things he did.)

** And before that, Kira is very annoyed that the Cardassian files on Bajoran terrorists refers to her as little more than an errand-girl.

* In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' Season 3, Laurel decides she wants to be a vigilante and asks Oliver to train her. He refuses making it clear he doesn't think she's capable of doing it. So she does it anyway, and while Oliver is missing and presumed dead works with the rest of his team. When he comes back, he kicks her off the team once again indicating he doesn't believe she's capable of this life. Fed up, she finally calls him on it.
-->'''Laurel:''' I know what you're going to say, but I risked my life for this city while you were gone. That should earn me some respect.

* ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'': For all of Miko's hard efforts to keep order in the school, she's constantly mocked behind her back and thought of as an annoying try hard. It's heavily implied that she wants some sort of validation for her work, given that she listens to encouragement [=CDs=] in her spare time and her most precious middle school memory being the mysterious "thank you" letter.

** Tommen might be a child king but he is still supposed to be the king. Yet no one consults him about his new decrees and he doesn't even have the power to let his mother attend Myrcella's funeral. There is a difference between surrounding yourself with wise councilors and surrounding yourself with assholes, and Tommen has not learnt it.

* ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'': Captain Britain, despite being the UK's most well known superhero, leader of Britain's biggest superhero team, and basically in charge of policing the multiverse, a position of responsibility to make the Green Lantern Corps look like a bunch of mall cops, he's often finding himself a punchline to mean-spirited jokes by some of the more {{Jerkass}} Avengers. Subverted with Hawkeye when the two were on the ''ComicBook/SecretAvengers'' together.

** Nowhere is it more obvious than in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. A DJ will constantly tell tales of your exploits, along with giving you a nickname or title based on your level and karma. Now, if you have good karma, it makes perfect sense for people to bother you with whatever problem they have: They know you've helped others, why wouldn't you help them? The joke comes when you have bad karma, no reason is given why people will come to you for help, or why the guards don't simply SHOOT YOU on sight, knowing all too well that whatever business you have in town, it's not going to be good. And of course, 90% of the people will treat you like a bag of shit, no matter if you are the best thing that has happened to them or a dangerous, homicidal nutso who could snap from the slightest insult and bash the insulter's head in without a bit of remorse (at least with the Brotherhood of Steel, this is perfectly in character). ''Finally'', with the ''Broken Steel'' DLC, after the final story quest, you [[spoiler:become an honored member of the [=BoS=] after the activation of Project Purity and, a few hours later, they celebrate you as a hero after blowing up the Adams Air Force base, where the remaining forces of the Enclave were stationed.]]
*** There's also the fact that the ending narration will basically call you a coward if you have Fawks or Charon [[spoiler: turn on the water purifier at the end of the game]], even though that's pretty much the smartest thing to do since they're ''immune'' to radiation.
** While ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' partially averts this (the major factions are willing to go as far as pardoning all your crimes against them just for the ''opportunity'' to offer you a job), this is played to the hilt for minor factions and independent [=NPCs=] until you do their quests, with the exception of the Powder Gangers (a gang of ex-cons turned raiders), who will alternatively send a messenger offering a ceasefire between you and their gang if you kill enough of them.
** Once again played very straight in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. You might be named ''General'' of the Minutemen, but that won't stop your alleged second-in-command from telling you to go kill a nest of ghouls ''every five minutes''. The Brotherhood of Steel and Institute aren't any better. At least in the case of the Railroad it's justified in that you end up as one of their few remaining senior operatives, so they ''have'' to keep leaning on you for support. And then there's [[TheScrappy Marcy Long]], a civilian who does nothing but bitch at you about how terrible everything is no matter how hard you've worked turning Sanctuary into the best settlement in the entire Commonwealth.

* Very much present in ''VideoGame/BlackAndWhite'', where, despite being a god, you must perform fairly menial tasks like finding someone's sheep or throwing rocks.
