** The Twelfth Doctor has a horrible SanitySlippage over the course of the 3-part Series 9 finale when he is betrayed and captured by none other than [[spoiler: his own race, having by now ''saved'' Gallifrey '''and''' protected it from their enemies for over 900 years]]! To make matters worse, [[spoiler: his companion Clara gets caught up in this plot and ends up dead]]. He decides to willingly undergo hideous torture in the name of a TragicDream that will likely ''destroy the universe'' if he sees it through. But how can he ''not'' get what he wants after all the good he did that was initially repaid so evilly, after all he's endured? In the end, he is made to understand that this line of thinking is not right, and not only gives up [[spoiler: Clara Oswald for good]], but also [[spoiler: many of his memories of her]] in the name of restoring his best self and repenting for his selfishness.

Doesn't quite fit the trope
** A few seasons later in the Series 9 three-part finale, the Twelfth Doctor undergoes a horrifying SanitySlippage in the wake of betrayal, [[spoiler: Clara's death]], and imprisonment in an elaborate torture chamber. It turns out that the BigBad responsible is [[spoiler: '''his own race''', since by this point he has ''saved'' Gallifrey]]; one of their collaborators, [[spoiler: Ashildr/Me]], owes him their life. He willingly endures his torment for [[spoiler: '''billions''' of years, via dying and recreating himself trillions of times over]] rather than giving in to his captors, because he knows it will allow him to [[spoiler: attain the means to save Clara from the grave]] and bring him the peace he craves. The problem is that if he gets what he wants, he risks '''destroying the universe'''; it's a TragicDream born of his grief and rage. In the end, he admits to himself and others that he's become gone too far, and accepts [[spoiler: not only losing Clara but many of his memories of her]] as a fitting punishment for his selfishness and a way to return to his best self.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' story ''The End of Time'' has the Doctor point this out. In the show's 47 year history, the Doctor has saved Earth, other planets, and the universe as a whole countless times, making sacrifice after sacrifice. Every friend he ever makes will die, while he is nearly immortal. He has destroyed his race to save the rest of the universe, making him the last of his kind. He's completely alone in the universe. His reward? None.

* ''Comicbook/MarshalLaw'': The Marshal gets awfully pissed when he finds that he didn't get his kill-fee for offing a lot of supers. His boss, Comissioner Mcgland gives him a number of reasons. Business is going down because there's not as many supers to handle and then money from the kill-fee went towards paying for damages to city property, maintenance of Marshal Law's secret base, and upkeep of supplies. Law doesn't buy any of this, so Mcgland gives him a mission as an alien hunter which will pay 6 times his regular fee.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonsDogma'', [[spoiler: your reward for killing the dragon is to be branded as a traitor by Duke Edmun, he frames you up for bargaining the dragon while he ''was'' the one who took that option, and he ordered [[EverythingTryingToKillYou everyone to kill you on sight]]. [[DisproportionateRetribution Time to pay back]], they called you a traitor? [[ThenLetMeBeEvil Then why not become the traitor right in front of them]] and [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential kill everyone in Gran Soren]].]]

** Well, in MMBN5:Team Colonel Baryl tells him that he was recruited because of his heroic achievements, even listing them one by one; of course, this just makes it more jarring when later he agrees with ShadowMan ''testing'' Lan and Mega Man...yes, the same ShadowMan that they defeated back in the second game.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', though they probably don't expect any reward for what they do, after Cell is defeated by the Z warriors everyone thinks Mr. Satan (Hercule) did it, a city is named after him... etc. What makes things worse is that Mr. Satan faked a video tape to make it look like he did it.
