* [[Cao Cao UsefulNotes/ThreeKingdomsShuWeiWu]] had a childhood friend named Zhang Miao. Zhang Miao had a falling out with another of their old friends named Yuan Shao, who at the time was acting as Cao Cao's nominal superior. Yuan Shao asked Cao Cao to execute Zhang Miao for him, but Cao declined to do so. However, when Cao was invading the province of Xu in 194, Zhang Miao (fearing Cao would eventually do as Yuan asked) led a group of conspirators to invite the wandering warlord Lu Bu into Cao's territory and take over.
** The kicker is that Cao Cao was invading Xu in order to avenge his father and brother, who'd just been murdered. While Zhang Miao himself escaped Cao Cao's wrath (by being murdered by his own men), Cao exterminated his family; the usual punishment for treason.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': [[spoiler:The Wall's commander Jon Snow]] gets knifed in the gut and back by several of [[spoiler:his fellow Black Brothers, who believe that the changes he's made to the Wall are going to doom it. These changes include letting almost all the Wildlings into their ranks, being about to send men on a borderline-suicidal mission to retrieve landlocked Wildlings, listening to Wildlings before taking the advice of fellow Black Brothers , and (though there are hints that they were going to do it even before this was put forth) announcing that he was leaving the Wall in order to go after a man who was causing trouble and threatening him. These are all Big Deals to anyone who knows the Wall's history.]]

-->'''Herb''': Do you know what it was like for me? I had nobody. Everybody left! I knew all those showbiz phonies would turn on me, sure. But you?

* In the backstory of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Gil and Tarvek were [[WeUsedToBeFriends best friends as children]] on [[CoolAirship Castle Wulfenbach]] - Tarvek was the son of a prince, and Gil was an [[DisappearedDad orphan who didn't know his family]] in a school where everyone was related to royalty. Gil helps Tarvek sneak around the Castle to [[TheMole spy on behalf of his father]], and in return Tarvek breaks into a top-security vault to try and find out who Gil's family are. After Gil is found and taken to the Baron, he is told that he's [[LostOrphanedRoyalty actually the Baron's son]], and that he's been manipulated by the son of an enemy into spying on his only family, [[spoiler:although WordOfGod says that he's also Zeetha's twin.]] To him, telling the Baron where Tarvek hides his encrypted notes is an act of loyalty. To Tarvek, he's just been stabbed in the back after trying to help his friend, and ends up getting sent back to his BigScrewedUpFamily who all want to kill each other. More than a decade later, and they [[EvilFormerFriend still resent each other]].

* ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'': In "Rabbit Marks The Spot", when Rabbit tries to teach the others a lesson in digging in his garden for treasure by filling up a chest with rocks, he has a nightmare in which his friends, as [[TakenForGranite stone statues]], [[WhatTheHellHero call him out]] for pulling such a stunt on them. Upon awaking from his nightmare, he fears that he will be hated forever if they found out what's in the chest. Of course, this is long before it's revealed they actually appreciate what kind of worth the "treasure" has to offer.

* In ''Film/DawnofthePlanetoftheApes'', Caesar has this reaction when he is betrayed and shot by Koba. Even better when you consider this was done to a protagonist whose name is Caesar.
