** Potions Master Professor Snape can be extremely harsh to non-Slytherin students whenever they screw up in his class, but when you see what can happen with improperly-mixed potions (one such potion ''[[MadeOfExplodium explodes]]'' when put in a flagon), you can almost not blame him for his attitude. Unfortunately, he's inexcusably lenient with the Slytherins, as the aforementioned exploding potion was Goyle's, who didn't even get a reprimand.



** Even Voldemort gets to benefit from this trope in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' when he declares that the house system will end and everyone will be put in Slytherin. The Slytherin part is petty flag-waving, but the house system only exists because the founders of Hogwarts disagreed about who to admit, and its main effect on the school is to foster division among the students - when even the Sorting Hat, whose entire purpose in life is continuing the house system, devotes a song to complaining about the lack of inter-house cooperation, it's clear that it badly needs to change.

* ''FanFic/MyMirrorSwordAndShield'':
** While Suzakuís first [[DrJerk doctor is racist]] and [[TheMole was a Resistance plant]] hoping to get the Emperorís best knight dismissed, he was right about the severity of [[Dented iron Suzakuís injuries would put him out of commission,]] leave Suzaku in pain for the rest of his life and it would have been better for Suzaku to be retired. A year after Suzakuís injuries heal, heís still dealing with pain.
** While the Knights of Round despise Suzaku out of ingrained racism, they do have a point that Suzaku's rise to power is really suspicious and they only have Suzaku and Lelouch's word to what happened to Euphemia and Sir Raleigh.

** In "The Stan-churian Candidate", [[EnfanteTerrible Gideon]] makes a NotSoDifferent speech to Dipper and Mabel while putting them in a DeathTrap. Given that the two used a mind-control necktie on Stan and Soos several times in the episode (despite witnessing Soos' terrified reactions to being controlled by it), he's not entirely wrong.

*** He is apathetic about [[spoiler: Sanji leaving the crew for an ArrangedMarriage with one of Big Mom's daughters]] because the Straw Hats cannot be involved with an Emperor's business when they are at the moment focused with dealing with another Emperor.

** Let's look at the view of Fudge and the ministry towards Harry in the fifth book. The only evidence that Voldemort has returned is a dead body that could have died as a result of anything, nor are we ever told if it is possible to test for death by the killing curse. It was noted previously that a single teenager's testimony is not enough for anyone to believe seriously and Harry has dubious credibility as it is. Finally Voldemort is believed to be dead; no magic can revive the dead and the knowledge of horcruxes appears to be virtually unknown thanks to [[EvenEvilHasStandards all the texts on the dark arts only mentioning them by name]] with only Dumbledore suspecting that Voldemort had used them. So is it any wonder no one believes Harry.

* Omega Zell from ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' has that trope written all over him, sometimes overlapping with EveryoneHasStandards. He may be a misogynist in addition to his jerkassery, but his criticism is sometimes for [[DirtyCoward genuinely]] [[ManipulativeBastard unacceptable]] attitudes on the part of his female acquaintances, and occasionally the male ones.

** Omega Zell gets on on the other side of this when it comes to Saphir, the recruiter from his dream guild. She refuses to give him the special treatment to which he thinks he's entitled, and she's right to do so given the number of applicants, which probably include other people who think they deserve special treatment, she has to deal with.

* ''FanFic/ChristmasWithACorduroy'':[[OverprotectiveDad Lynda Pines]] spends much of the story treating [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Wendy]], a house guest, like a deviant. She may have been overtly hostile, but the stunts Wendy and the twins were pulling, one which nearly dislocated Dipper's shoulder, were something any sane parent would be frightened by. They also had no problem lying to her either.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11669575/2/For-Love-of-Magic For Love of Magic]]'', [[Literature/HarryPotter Snape's]] dislike of Hermione stems from the fact that "any idiot can regurgitate facts from a book" and her turning in essays twice as long as required makes more work for him.
