** Notably, he fails to put any blame on the actual cause of her death - the car crash - and as part of his character trait of preferring old school manual ways of doing things, continues to drive mostly by hand instead of autopilot. Even at the films release, it was known that human error is the primary cause of the large majority of car accidents and fatalities, which played a large role in the desire for increased automation of driving as it became technologically possible.

* The killer's motivation in the original ''Film/{{Friday the 13th|1980}}'' is that the camp counselors were too busy having sex to prevent a young boy from drowning. However, the character's madness has extended this to ''all'' camp counselors, even those working at Camp Crystal Lake many years later.

* In ''Film/IRobot'', Spooner plays the Fool against a robot who saved his life instead of a child because he had a bigger chance of survival.

This caused him to develop hatred against all robots, arguing that the child's life was worth more and should have been prioritized over his regardless of the odds. He supports this by saying a human would know that and would have chosen to save the child, but a robot can't think that way.

* In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' Season 2, Laurel initially blames the Hood (and as such the Arrow) for failing to save [[spoiler:Tommy]] from being killed in the Undertaking. Her father is able to get to realize that's unfair and unreasonable...which makes her realize that since he was there to save her, its ''her'' [[ItsAllMyFault fault]]. This is a viewpoint that she never truly seems to recover from, and helps cause her downward spiral.

* Sentinel's main reason for hating Optimus in ''TransformersAnimated''. Well, his main claimed reason; Sentinel is kind of a dick.

Optimus tires to apologize, but the Kid rejects it, while Sentinel remains being a dick and tries to "put [[spoiler:her]] out of [[spoiler:her]] misery".
