* Bernard Black in ''BlackBooks'', who in the final episode admits that most of his bitterness stems from the death of his fiancee. Fran later reveals that the fiancee actually faked her death to get out of the relationship because Bernard was ''already'' an unbearable misanthrope and ''everyone'' knew she was still alive except for Bernard. After initially being upset, he forgives Fran, apparently happy to continue believing that HumansAreBastards.

[[HandshakeRefusal He never shake hands with Professor Aronnax]], he [[LonersAreFreaks has severed all contact with the "civilized" world]] [[AboveGoodAndEvil and its morality]], and [[StartMyOwn creates his own society]] of people that also had been maddened into misanthropy that will become an NGOSuperpower. Oh, and he tries to become an {{Ubermensch}}. When Aronnax calls him out about the cruelty implied in never letting them leave the Nautilus, he answers:

* [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]] of ZeroPunctuation routinely mentions that he is a jaded misanthrope and blames this on [[HumansAreMorons the stupidity of human society]]. Whether this is SelfDeprecatingHumor or is actually true of the man seems to be an exercise for the viewer.
