* At the time of his heel run in 2012, Wrestling/CMPunk went ''postal'' when Wrestling/JohnCena won the "Superstar of the Year" award of the Slammy Awards, demanding why someone who got destroyed by Wrestling/BrockLesnar, lost to [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], lost to Punk, failed to win with MITB, and couldn't win Wrestling/DolphZiggler's title shot won an award over someone who held the WWE Championship every day of 2012. While these Slammys were determined entirely by popular vote, Punk brought up some credible points. To his credit, Cena obviously agreed as the look on his face when he came out to receive it was a combination of OhCrap and ThisIsGonnaSuck, not aided by the fact that the award show was in [[Wrestling/{{ECW}} Philadelphia]].

Cm punk was rightfully upset about not getting any respect when he was champion all year long yet most of the time was still playing second fiddle to Cena.

*Randy Orton's whole motive for going after Triple H during the road to their WrestleMania 25 match was because Triple H screwed him out of his first title run-which was exactly what happen. It was not help by the fact that during the feud he was going after Triple H's family the Mcmahon's who all were at best AssholeVictim's
** Funny enough Cm Punk's fed with Ortion at Wrestlemania 27 feud was over a similar issue where Punk was after Orton because Orton cost him his first title run by attacking him out before his title match and taking him out of the match as a result, thus Punk never properly lost his belt.
*Ryback's reason for turning heel against John Cena back in 2013 was because he was sick of Cena never having his back after he was constantly being attack by the shield despite the fact Ryback had always been there to help Cena. It was very telling that the fans were intentionally unsure if Ryback was a heel since that was a understandable reason to turn on Cena. Further it wasn't help by the fact Cena's rebuttal was simply just accusing Ryback of being a crybaby.
* Triple H and Stephanie Mcmahon calling out John Cena for attacking skinny middle aged Jon Stewart. Granted Stewart had cost Cena his title match aganist Rollins, but still Cena did come off as a sore loser.

** In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerofAzkaban'', while Snape does consider Harry to be far more arrogant than he actually is, he rightly calls Harry out for sneaking out of Hogwarts while everybody -- including the Minister for Magic [[spoiler:and Snape himself]] -- are trying to keep Harry safe from a killer who broke out of [[TheAlcatraz Azkaban]]. It becomes clear when NiceGuy Lupin tells Harry the same thing.

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'': Sebastian St. Claire is a raging narcissist that works in war-torn [[{{Ruritania}} Cordovia]] doing charity work. While his efforts and works in the country are clearly for his glory and honor, he makes some solid points that a book written about him will encourage people to donate money to his foundation, which helps the country. His emotional detachment from the situation ensures that despite the horrors that come his way, he is always functional. This is in stark contrast to Diane, who bonds with a small child [[spoiler:that is killed in a hospital bombing. She isn't able to emotionally handle it, and goes home shortly afterwards.]] When Diane calls him out for his attitude, he counters that grieving over the dead won't help them or the living, and only building new facilities for them will.

*In the fic ''"Batteries"'', Nonon is the only one (out of the other characters) who's openly hostile and slut shames Ryuuko but she is right with how much the latter's absence really hurt Satsuki, so much so, that her health suffered and she was, once, hospitalized .
-->'''Nonon''': "Yeah, well, if something happens to you, it will kill her! So, if you fucked around and we had to give her bad news, she'd probably die right on the fucking spot."

* ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs''
** Despite treating Ellie as nothing but a [[TagAlongKid nuisance]] and butts heads with her, Bill does point out that Ellie's earlier statement of needing a gun to protect herself and back up Joel and him is a pretty good idea. Joel ignores him at first, but eventually comes around [[spoiler:after a Hunter almost drowned him and Ellie put a bullet into that guy's head, saving Joel's life]].
** Bill comes across as incredibly unfriendly and blunt, to the point that nobody wants to be with him - not even his partner, Frank, who decided to leave when he had enough of Bill's rough attitude. But Bill says that, in this world, being with another person and caring for them is guaranteed to backfire eventually. [[spoiler:Given what happens to [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie Sam]] and [[DrivenToSuicide Henry]], as well as Joel's decision to save Ellie over a potential cure for mankind, Bill's mindset is correct.]]

** There's also the fact that compared to US Navy ships, IJN ships had ineffective and inferior antiaircraft guns, mounts, and outfits; for example, ''Enterprise'' in her final configuration carried more effective AA guns than all of ''Fubuki'', ''Akatsuki'' and ''Shiratsuyu''-class destroyers. ''Combined.'' [[note]]While the Japanese Type-3 127mm gun was theoretically a dual-purpose gun, in practice it was ineffective in the AA role due to a host of issues. The American 5" DP gun was significantly more successful as a weapon.[[/note]] American ships could regularly fight off and weather air attacks that would have overwhelmed British and Japanese ships, and Yvonne's not realising the difference may have coloured her expectations and perceptions.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' episode "Super Sirloin", Meatwad sends all the food in the house off to a rapper named Sir Loin to feed starving children. This includes a duck à l'orange that Shake was going to eat, and he is not thrilled about that discovery, since that duck cost "higher than Meatwad can count". And for once, Frylock agrees with Shake.

** Sasuke pointing out that the only reason Sakura loves him is because they were on the same team for a little while over three years ago and she had a crush and that she's willing to overlook multiple counts of willing atrocities and attempted murders for [[LovingAShadow a guy she knows pretty much nothing about]]. We even see early in the story through a flashback that it was basically LoveAtFirstSight and she was so insensitive that she didn't realize insulting Naruto for ''[[KickTheDog not having parents]]'' just ''[[SarcasmMode might]]'' also offend Sasuke "Entire clan murdered down to two" Uchiha. It's blatantly clear to see the distinction in comparison to Naruto, whom Sasuke does acknowledges as his best friend because [[NotSoDifferent they mutually understand each other's lonely pasts]].

There other people who have gone through that and aren’t total assholes. Taking out your problems on other people is a coward’s way of dealing with them, instead of facing them!”
