** Sapphire's future vision sometimes means that she forgets that the problems she sees solved in the future still affect people in the present. When she realizes this in ''Keystone Motel'', she's so mortified she starts ''weeping''.


Added DiffLines:

** Sardonyx. When she is trying to figure out the capabilities of [[spoiler: Steven and Amethyst's fusion Smoky Quartz]], she unintentionally makes it all about her and does a number on [[spoiler: Smoky's]] ego. When she realizes what she did, the horror makes her de-fuse.

* Arthéon's Season 4 girlfriend Kary in ''Series/{{Noob}}''. Arthéon really loves Kary to the poin that [[spoiler:he actually wants to marry her in real life. After they find a unique item together, Kary agrees to a wedding on the online game that they're both playing. In the middle of the ceremony, a game-wide event is triggered and Kary prefers going to see what it's about rather than finishing the ceremony, stating it was just something they were doing for fun anyway. This breaks Arhtéon's heart to the point of causing a Rage Breaking Point. The main culpirt in that insensitivity is however the fact that she seemingly was taking the relationship less seriously than Arthéon and assumed it was the same thing for him.]]

** A subtle one happens between Judy and Bellwether after Judy volunteers to take the Otterton case. Bellwether says that "us little guys have to stick together," to which Judy responds, "Like glue." Bellwether chuckles uncomfortably, but says nothing beyond a quiet, "Good one". Glue is traditionally made out of the hooves, hides and bones of ungulates, so comparing a sheep to glue could be construed as racist. (Double-edged, at that one of the other things glue can be made from is rabbit skin. No wonder Bellwether's so uncomfortable.)

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell has a slightly difficult relationship with his son Gregory; they love each other, but Gregory is guileless and doesn't understand his father very well. So when Cromwell makes a joking-not-joking comment that his [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c6/Cromwell%2CThomas(1EEssex)01.jpg portrait]] makes him look like a murderer (a persistent insecurity of his), Gregory simply says "you didn't know?"

** Speaking of Rainbow Dash, this could be a reason as to why she starts off seemingly uncaring about Fluttershy's phobias in the early episodes even willing to prank her. She has impatience in Dragonshy, doesn't realize her spending time with Gilda is essentially alienating her friend Pinkie Pie, teases Spike for wearing an apron in Dragon Quest, in her lust for cider, ends up making Fluttershy feel uncomfortable in Bats, destroys the Cloudsdale weather factory to stop winter just to spend more time with her tortoise, shoves said tortoise to the side in the episode he becomes her pet, tries to get Fluttershy to fly in the tornado by pushing her against her will, (though Fluttershy goes anyway because of Rainbow Dash, she still is told to suck it up by Rainbow Dash before the pegasus quickly realizes who she was talking to and changes her tone) and even unknowingly causes Scootaloo to be afraid of the Everfree Forest by telling ghost stories.


Added DiffLines:

** Among the Cutie Mark Crusaders Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle tend to do this without thinking such as leave their friend alone when she's clearly broken about being teased for being unable to fly, Sweetie unknowingly almost causes Rarity to lose her job just from changing a stitch, and Apple Bloom when she finds the toy Big Mac and her used to play with, kinda just shrugs it off leaving her big brother to be very hurt.

** A fairly mild instance occurs between Judy and Clawhauser early on. He gushes over how cute she is and clearly means no harm by it, but Judy replies that it's very condescending for a non-rabbit to call a rabbit cute.
