** ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew'': Jadis' mistake when she tries to tempt Diggory in the garden (yes, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything this is supposed to remind you of something]]) is saying he could just leave Polly behind when he returns to Earth so no one will find out he stole the apple. The "very meanness of the suggestion" [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame makes Diggory realize Jadis isn't trying to help him or his mother]] and renders all her arguments moot to him.

* The spirits of the SevenDeadlySins in ''Webcomic/{{Widdershins}}'' aren't evil so much as antagonistic and utterly single-minded, but {{Lust}} freely acknowledges that he doesn't understand how humans function with "such a mess of chaotic emotions." Consequently he assumes that LoveIsAWeakness and overlooks how strong some of the couples in the story are with each other as backup.

* In David Edding's ''[[TheElenium Tamuli]]'' trilogy, it is revealed that the EvilPlan of the guy who was behind the scenes in the ''The Elenium'' trilogy went belly up when one person did something he couldn't imagine happening: she gave the MacGuffin with ultimate power to someone else instead of keeping it herself.

* In ''Fanfic/SayItThrice'', Lydia's [[EvilUncle Evil Aunt]] Melinda seems completely incapable of understanding that not everyone shares her [[FantasticRacism views on ghosts]]. At the end of the story, [[spoiler: as she's [[RealityEnsues being arrested for trying to kill Lydia]] (for siding against her), she seems completely baffled as to why, as she sees it as having been justified in the fulfillment of her goals.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode "The Devil to Pay", the heroes were conned by a demon named Dib Devlin into competing in [[DeadlyGame a game show with their souls on the line.]] Dib clearly had no faith in human nature, and set up the final round as a DeathTrap that could be escaped if one of them admitted to doing something bad. He was dad ''wrong'', as they ''all'' thought of something bad they had done and confessed to it. (Although it took Ray--the intended one--the longest to admit it, that he [[spoiler:had eaten a cookie that Slimer had gotten slime all over, but he eventually did, grossing out even the demonic studio audience.]])

* In ''The First Wives Club'' by Olivia Goldsmith, Gil dumps his wife for a younger woman, causing her to commit suicide. Her three friends (also dumped by thier husbands) unite for some payback. They reveal to Gil his new love is with a black man and the racist Gil attacks her at a party. Coming to his office, Gil finds that the massive deal he's brokered (using $800 million of the company's money) is falling through as they told the Japanese owner of the company how Gil planned to break the company apart and sell it off and he couldn't do that to his employees. Gil's immediate reaction is to try and offer the man more money, unable to accept that a CEO would put the well-being of his employees over making a profit.
** When he realizes his partners will tear him apart for costing them so much money, Gil asks the Wives why they're doing it. When they tell him to ask his late ex-wife, Gil is baffled, honestly not able to understand why he's to blame for her death.

*[[{{VideoGame/Lunar}} Lunar series]]:
** In [[{{LunarTheSilverStar}} Lunar:Silver Star Story]], the villain's sinister plot begins when he witnesses an act of divine altruism and perceives it as abandonment. [[spoiler:Magic Emperor Ghaleon could not understand why the Goddess Althena chose to relinquish her powers when it meant the world would lose her oversight, and plotted to fill the void she left...with himself.]]
** In [[{{LunarEternalBlue}} Lunar 2]], the villain uses the heroes' feelings of friendship and love in a BatmanGambit against the heroine, [[spoiler:bringing her under his control.]] But he never imagined that those same emotions would empower her to overcome him.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Earthlings", not only does Jasper still not realize that stable Gem fusions are based around mutual love and trust, but [[spoiler: she refuses Steven's help when she becomes corrupted after fusing with a Gem monster. She thinks Rose Quartz's habit of reaching out to misfit gems who have no place in Homeworld's FantasticCasteSystem was just preying on their desperation in order to recruit more troops for her revolution.]]

* In Creator/SandyMitchell's ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' novel ''[[DarkHeresy Scourge the Heretic]]'', while Kyrlock and Elyra are [[TheInfiltration infiltrating]] a smuggling operation, a man [[AttemptedRape goes to rape]] a girl also waiting to be smuggled. Elyra objects, and not comprehending why, he offers to share. Kyrlock realizes this, says that Elyra wouldn't take him up on it, but [[FakeDefector he would]]--which the man cannot believe would be false, so lets Kyrlock get close enough to brain him.

* While not evil necessarily (more like inhuman), Vlad notes this about the Jeonine in the ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' book ''Issola''. They hire him to kill the goddess Vera (who he's rather pissed off at), and he comments to his friends how they obviously have no understanding at all of humanity, to think he would actually do this.
