*In ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'', Patsy faithfully follows and serves King Arthur for the entire journey... But that doesn't stop Arthur from singing a song about how alone he is.

* In ''Franchise/{{Civilization}}'', the leader of a rival civilization will give you very little respect. They will offer trades that grossly favor them, and even demand you simply give them things. This even if you've conquered every other civilization in the game, your empire occupies a swath of land five times as big as theirs, your army is ten times as large, and your technology is decades ahead of theirs.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Cinder Fall herself gets this among [[TheManBehindTheMan Salem's]] inner circle, as shown in the premiere of Volume 4. Even after Cinder became the Fall Maiden and personally orchestrated the fall of both Vale and Beacon Academy, ''none'' of Salem's other subordinates have any respect for her, deeming her a failure and openly mocking her to her face.

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'': No matter how often Sonic saves them from Eggman, the inhabitants of Bygone Island always seem prepared to believe the worst in him and turn on him at the drop of a hat over anything, no matter how large or small. In "Just a Guy," it reaches a point where Sonic goes off on a rant over it and goes into a TenMinuteRetirement:
-->'''Sonic''': You know what I think is "compassionate?" Saving the village from Eggman! Like, every week! But do I get any props for that? No! Everyone just goes around gasping at me whenever I call a guy a "guy," or people "people!"

** It's made even worse when you take into account the fact that for every adventure that his Uncle Scrooge undertakes Donald is right there with him doing just as much heavylifting, if not more, and furthermore tends to have just as many of his own amazing adventures apart from his uncle. Then also note that for all the times he's called lazy it's noted time and again that Donald has had multiple jobs and is constantly shown to be looking for a new one. Admittedly, it is something of a flaw that he can't hold down a job, but the fact remains that he still always attempts to find another one. Not for himself, but for the three children at home that he's responsible for. This can't be seen as anything less than admirable.

Then again, [[NotSoDifferent he too works to make the money to raise his son as a single parent]]).
** Amazingly enough, Paperinik himself gets hit with it from time to time. It usually takes the form of a new superhero showing up and the people of Duckburg worshipping him and forgetting Paperinik because the new guy is cooler (never mind that the new hero is invariably revealed as a screw-up or [[VillainWithGoodPublicity a supervillain]] trying to make Paperinik retire in disgust at Duckburg's people), but in one rather annoying occasion it was [[TallPoppySyndrome because he had become too good and the people of Duckburg were envious]].

* Ataru Moroboshi from ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' saved the world ''in the first episode''. Everyone but Lum tend to treat him as an idiotic parasite, and his girlfriend Shinobu went back on her promise to marry him if he succeeded (and later broke up with him).

* People should learn that messing or inconveniencing Kazuma Kiryu, protagonist of the ''VideoGame/{{Yakuza}}'' series, is a ''bad'' idea, but they still do it anyway. It takes a measure of suspension of disbelief to swallow that so many gangsters are willing to pick a fight with him considering his reputation. The only gangster to admit how badass Kazuma is is Nagahama in ''Yakuza: Dead Souls'', who freely admits that he may be a gangster and he may be tough... but he's [[BadAss no Kazuma Kiryu]].

* In ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' games and books, the titular witchers are often treated with mistrust and fear by the populace, if not outright scorn and hatred, due to a combination of superstition, genuine fear of things that aren't human, religious fanaticism, and a reputation tarnished by an ugly history. That being said, witchers are also viewed as heroes by many where they've saved lives and villages by slaying monsters. Geralt of Rivia himself is a paradox of loathing and respect; in one town he'll be hailed as a hero and dine with a king for helping reverse a curse on his family, and in the next he'll be openly threatened by the guards and denounced by the priests for being an inhuman mutant.

* In the Eye of the North expansion to ''GuildWars'', 'faction' mechanics toyed with in previous installments reach the point where some items are only possible to acquire through earning a reputation-based title with that faction, with characters lacking that title being rudely informed that the items in question aren't available to just anyone. Nevermind that for three of these factions, it is perfectly possible to have single-handedly rescued the organisation from their greatest enemies or to have destroyed the entity that serves as their greatest nemesis without having achieved sufficient reputation to "earn" these services.

When this happens to the heroes over the course of multiple stories, the culprit is usually StatusQuoIsGod. In order to keep the setting and its characters consistent from beginning to end, or at least without huge changes, it's necessary for the characters other than the heroes (and often the heroes themselves) to behave much the same as when the series got started.

** The VideoGame/AceCombat series also provides the grand champion of subverting this trope with VideoGame/AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar, wherein the protagonist, Cipher, quickly goes from nobody to nightmare, receiving the title of "[[RedBaron Demon Lord of the Round Table]]" and being accredited as the reason several fights are won. By late game, merely identifying Galm Team in the IFF is enough to turn around an entire battle and lifting morale from the ground all the way to the top. In contrast with the above example, your superiors in this game consider you an indispensable asset in the war and a briefing tells you as much flat out.
