* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' [[PrinciplesZealot Stannis Baratheon]] occasionally makes these comments to people due to his terrible social skills and BrutalHonesty, not helped by the fact he doesn't think he has any friends (though his relationship with [[TheGoodChancellor Davos Seaworth]] seems the closest thing to friendship he has). In the Prologue to ''Literature/AClashOfKings'' he tells the aged Maester Cressen he is reducing their work as they're too old to be of use. However he then mentions that working for him at their age could be dangerous (particularly as Cressen recently fell and broke their hip), so Stannis was trying to be nice to Cressen. In ''Literature/AStormOfSwords'' he tells Jon Snow that their [[spoiler:murdered half-brother Robb Stark was a traitor for not declaring for Stannis, although this could certainly be interpreted as correct it wasn't the best thing to say to Jon.]]

* Denmark of ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'' fame is prone to this. This usually contrasts with his laidback and... ''[[LovableSexManiac friendly attitude]]'' towards everyone around him. Of course, the character being based on {{UsefulNotes/Denmark}}, most of his comments turn up racist and insensitive mainly towards the middle-eastern or african characters.

** Steven have also had his moments of unwitting insensitivity. First, how he pressued Sadie (along with Barb) into competing in a competition she hardly wanted to do in the firs place. Second, he gave Lapis a minor guilt trip for not wanting to be Peridot's friend -- the same Gem who previously imprisoned Lapis (with Jasper), something that Steven was aware of.

* In ''Manga/TomodachiGame'', Shibe's EstablishingCharacterMoment demonstrates that he doesn't consider how his words come off as at times, and it remains a major flaw of his throughout the game. [[spoiler:In a series where the reader is meant to doubt the characters, Shibe can come off as a BitchInSheepsClothing or {{Jerkass}} in hiding, before it's made clear that no, Shibe's really just this trope.]]

* People with poor social skills -- children and shy people who haven't had much chance to interact socially especially -- are also prone to this. It's a recognized symptom of Asperger's Syndrome, since sufferers are bad at picking up non-verbal cues that would alert them to other people's feelings.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': The Parshmen are a docile SlaveRace that will starve to death if not given any orders. When the Alethi find a tribe of free Parshmen with their own culture, they name them Parshendi, which means "Parshmen that can think." Neither side sees anything wrong with this; the Parshendi normally just call themselves "the listeners," anyway.
