* In ''Film/TheProducers'' Roger De Bris is supposedly a terrible theatrical director, but he competently stages a production of "Springtime For Hitler" complete with an elaborate BusbyBerkeleyNumber.

* Various sources state that ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' can be a jerk at times. This contrasts with his actual in-game portrayal. He is always portrayed as a caring, friendly, if somewhat snarky guy. While more a case of CharacterizationMarchesOn, bios also sometimes refer to Tails being childlike and hyperactive, despite his personality being [[WiseBeyondTheirYears even more mature and rational than Sonic's]] for the large part. Note, however, that this only really applies to the games- [[SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie In]] [[SonicUnderground other]] [[SonicSatAM media]] Sonic's a lot more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and Tails is usually more childlike and naive. This applies least for Sonic in ''Anime/SonicX'', in which he can be rather impolite and disrespectful of other people at other times but is still pretty nice nonetheless, and least for Tails in ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', in which he's a ''lot'' more intelligent and mature than Sonic could ever hope to be.

* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', it's said that Zach [[BigBrotherBully "can be so mean"]] to his little brother, Gray. At worst, Zach is less compassionate than he could be regarding Gray's sadness over their parents' impending divorce, but when the ''Indominus rex'' attacks, Zach's BigBrotherInstinct kicks in.

** PlayedForLaughs during a Tales Of Interest segment parodying TheWizardOfOz. The introduction of the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion are all rushed through without giving them much of a chance to show off ''why'' they need what they need from the Professor, until Zoidberg just pulls up in a taxi as the Cowardly Lion (without a costume) and flatly proclaims, "And I'm the third guy. Courage. Not enough of it."

** Leah is often described as a shrew of the highest order, to the point where ''Breaking Dawn'' has Jacob finding it extremely weird to have a civil conversation with her, and everyone agreeing that the miserable life she's living is her own fault. While Leah does say some not nice things, a lot of her "jerkishness", like trying to convince Jacob to stop pursuing Bella because she's getting married, makes a lot of sense. Not to mention that her "shrewish" behavior started after her she lost her fiance to her cousin, turned into a werewolf, went through the stress of her dad dying, and generally had her whole life ruined and screwed up. It is not surprising that haters of the series see Leah as the UnintentionallySympathetic {{Woobie}}, garnering a ''massive'' fanbase int he process.

** Holmes' drug use is this in the first few books. Naturally, since A. it wasn't really all that out of the ordinary for the time, at least for those of Holmes' bohemian lifestyle; B. he mainly does it from boredom when he doesn't have a case, and the stories are all about the cases; and C. Watson eventually gets him to kick the habit, it just doesn't come up. Adaptations like ''The Seven Percent Solution'' love to push the angle for all it's worth.

** Watson lists several "vices" in the first book, which include being lazy, hating arguments and noise, and getting up at odd hours at night. Seeing as how he's a ShellShockedVeteran recovering from being wounded and ill, these hardly count as vices and do not appear in later stories after he recovers. He also says that he has "another set of vices when I'm well", none of which are ever actually depicted in the stories either (there are subtle allusions that hint that these mysterious vices may include gambling and ''possibly'' womanizing, but they are never shown). Of course, he ''is'' the narrator; [[UnreliableNarrator maybe he's editing out the parts he's uncomfortable with?]]
