* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' and ''Radiant Dawn'' give us Soren most frequently but [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Ike most famously.]][[note]]Which is completely out of character for the man who would even show sympathy to his father's killer.[[/note]]

* In the ending of ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]'', Sonic explains to Amy about how he missed their date due to being sent to Arthurian times. Amy thinks he's just making up excuses for missing their date and proceeds to chase him with her hammer.

Amy thinks he's just making up excuses for missing their date and proceeds to chase him with her hammer. Granted, randomly being summoned to Arthurian times is a bit far-fetched.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SagwaTheChineseSiameseCat'' Baba Miao repeatedly makes Dongwa write scrolls without giving him ''any'' sort of break. Later, when he catches Sagwa doing Dongwa's work, he accuses Dongwa of making his sister do his work (despite the fact that Sagwa could have refused, but being generous, didn't) and worse, accuses Sagwa of "helping [Dongwa] decieve me", and then grounds them both. He never apologizes to Sagwa amd only apologizes to Dongwa after a nightmare about his childhood in which, ironically enough, he was treated the same way.

* This is Creator/JohnKricfalusi's original concept for / intended portrayal of [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren]], and he is portrayed this way in some episodes, but ExecutiveMeddling on [[Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} the network's]] part forced him to tone it down considerably in other episodes [[note]]to the point of it not happening at all in some cases[[/note]], especially in the infamous [[Recap/RenandStimpy2x07SonofStimpy Son of Stimpy]] episode (click the link for all of the "stinky" details...).
** Incidentally, the episodes made by Games Animation studios did not have this mandate, so regularly played this trope for Ren at ''full throttle'', to the point even Kricfalusi himself thought his dynamic with Stimpy had gotten too mean spirited.

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': In the episode "Little Ed Blue", Ed, who is usually a NiceGuy, is in a bad mood and terrorizes the cul-de-sac kids. Edd and Eddy go to cheer him up, but with different ways. Whereas Edd tries to cheer Ed up kindly, Eddy really doesn't seem to care about Ed's predicament. He belittles him, shows him very little in the way of patience or empathy, and even causes him to reach his RageBreakingPoint by smacking him upside the head and telling him to get over himself.

** ''[[RunningGag Another example]]'' (This happened to Ash a lot, didn't it?) was in the very second episode when Ash carried an injured Pikachu to Viridian City's Pokémon Center. The Nurse Joy of the center angrily berates Ash for his supposed reckless care of Pikachu, completely unaware that Pikachu had been the one treating Ash poorly and refused to stay inside the Pokéball, or that they were attacked by a flock Spearow which Pikachu fended off.

** It's fairly obvious that Max is [[FerrisBuellersDayOff the Ferris Bueller to PJ's Cameron Frye]], and we're supposed to sympathize with Max more simply because he's way more fun and cool.

* A particularly horrifying example: When Timothy McVeigh learned that [[WouldHurtAChild 19 little kids died due to his bomb]] he chillingly replied "I have no sympathy for them" and described them as [[WeHaveReserves "Collateral damage"]]. Needless to say, the jury quickly returned a guilty verdict and recommended the death penalty.

* ''[[{{Film/Rush2013}} Rush (2013)]]'' has [[FormulaOne Scuderia Ferrari]], which team is considered early on as purely business-minded. The employers' reaction to Niki Lauda's [[ItWasHisSled near-fatal accident]] is promptly hiring another driver to take up his spot. Lauda is not pleased by this.

* <i>Criminal</i> (an English-language remake of Nine Queens) has Creator/JohnCReilly's con-artist character Richard established as much less sympathetic than Creator/DiegoLuna's con-artist character Rodrigo.
