Compare EntitledBastard, where the beneficiary has no sense of gratitude whatsoever and may even complain about minor inconveniences associated with the rescue. Contrast GrudgingThankYou, where however much he resents it, the rescued acknowledges that gratitude is due.

* Fireheart in ''Literature/WarriorCats'' saves Sandpaw from falling into the gorge. Considering that up until this point Sandpaw has done nothing but insult Fireheart and call him useless, it's not surprising that she's angry at him for saving her - and pretends that she didn't need the help.

Does the rival or opponent thank the hero for saving them when he didn't have to? [[UngratefulBastard Rarely]]. They instead insist that they could have escaped by themselves, and ''would'' have, if he hadn't swooped in and tried to play...well, [[ChronicHeroSyndrome the hero]]. Admitting that they [[IOweYouMyLife owe him one]] would be a great blow to their ego (though the resistance is understandable if the hero immediately [[ItsAllAboutMe gloats about the rescue]], or rudely demands that the saved show their gratitude before they have a chance to do so themselves). At the very best, a patently insincere word of gratitude may be expressed before their speedy departure.

*** Though given the FridgeLogic that he'd have to comb through the deck and remove ''all'' of Yugi's cards, this is understandable. He'd have to be careful not to accidentally remove any of his own cards from the deck, or keep any of Yugi's cards. Anyone who has had to sort their {{LEGO}} from someone else's will understand.
