* A vlaath is a predator found on the Lower Planes in the ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' campaign, and one of the most sadistic of beasts, torturing prey to death via the most horrendous means imaginable. One researcher who refused to believe they did this simply ForTheEvulz formulated the theory that vlaath were EmotionEater who fed on their victims' fear, possibly giving the creature some justification. This theory was debunked when the researcher sedated a vlaath to talk to it. Or rather, ''thought'' he had sedated it.(The researcher's assistant managed to escape with the recording ''mimir'' and published the research posthumously.)

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': This along with HorribleJudgeOfCharacter is the FatalFlaw of most of House Stark. They really never catch on that not everybody in Westeros holds the same lofty moral standards that they do, [[spoiler:which eventually gets most of them betrayed and massacred, leaving only a few scattered surviving children]].

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' and its sequel ''Knights Of The Old Republic II: The Sith Lords'' show the Jedi to be very ignorant of the Sith order and the motives of those who turn to the dark side. In particular, Darth Revan was able to convert so many Jedi to his cause not only because of this trope, but also because he was a notable aversion of EvilCannotComprehendGood. Revan understood the order and its flaws far too well, exploiting them to deadly effect.

* In ''Fanfic/TheVerySecretDiary'', Ginny ultimately realizes she can't quite figure out what the hell is wrong with Tom and why he is the way he is, and gives him an ''epic'' TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
-->'''Ginny:''' Was [[OrphanageOfFear it]] a terrible place, Tom?\\
'''Tom:''' Oh, are we back to Tom? And now comes a surge of pity… yes, I feel it. God, how insipid you are. How predictable. How full of drama and tepid romantic conclusions. It was just a place like your sorry little Burrow, overrun with children. No different.\\
'''Ginny:''' You say that you can feel my lies. [[ShutUpHannibal Well, you are in me so much now that I can feel yours too.]] And I do not feel sorry for you at all. I have been thinking. Harry is an orphan, and he is not horrible. And Prissy has everything she wants, and she is still nasty. So I do not know how much it counts. I cannot work out what is wrong with you.\\
'''Tom:''' ...[[spoiler:[[GetOut Get. Out.]]]]]

* In the Vertigo series ''Hard Time'' Ethan is a 15 year old who takes part in a "prank" shooting at his school only to realize his friend is using real bullets. Sentenced to a maximum security prison, Ethan talks to a pair of lawyers about how he was ruthlessly bullied by the jocks and pretty girls at his school. He relates how he point blank asked the quaterback why he was doing this and the man just replied "because I hate you." The female attorney (an attractive black woman) is thrown, unable to understand this but her husband (a more nerdy white man) is quick to answer.

** More generally, the Reapers are a race of robotic EldritchAbominations who cull all advanced societies every 50,000 years. Many in the galaxy at large cannot comprehend that the Reapers are engaging in a multi-species war of extermination, not a war of conquest. The Reapers exploit this by using MindRape to make leaders tell their populations to stop fighting while a peace deal is hammered out. The Reapers offer no peace, but a docile populace is easier to exterminate.
