* In ''Film/SenseAndSensibility'', Fanny complains that Marianne and Margaret Dashwood have been cold to her after she swooped in and took over the house (her husband, their half-brother, inherited it). Her brother Edward tries to point out that they've just lost their father and their lives have changed forever, but she just says that's no excuse.

* The ''F*ck My Life'' website is part catharsis, part concrete proof of NoSympathy. There are two buttons beneath each post - "I agree, your life sucks" and "You deserved it." Sometimes even the softest hearted reader has to admit they kind of did it to themselves, but even if the original poster was mugged, attacked, humiliated, heartbroken or injured, there will always be a few ''hundred'' people who click the "You Deserved It" button. Especially if the poster has let slip that they are an AcceptableTarget in some way.

Especially if the poster has let slip that they are an AcceptableTarget in some way. Though this has been averted in more recent times where stories where the poster couldn't have possibly deserved it have the "You Deserved It" button replaced with "That Could Have Happened To Me". There are also a handful of inversions where people who were clearly at fault still have several people voting "Your Life Sucks"(on top of the fact that a sufficient amount of users had to agree with that statement for the post to make it onto the site to begin with).

* Frances from ''Series/TheLibrarians2007'' lives and breathes this trope. Particularly towards Dawn. [[spoiler: Whom she was responsible for crippling.]]

* Finn from ''Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens'' seems to have no compassion for Stormtroopers, despite having been one his whole life and knowing that many of them are ChildSoldiers who were kidnapped and indoctrinated until they reached adulthood. What makes it more jarring is the fact that he's shown mourning the loss of his comrade and refusing to fire at war prisoners.

* ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'': Several times, Nels Oleson to his wife, Harriet, after she has gotten her comeuppance and she tries to cry on her husband's shoulder, insisting that she had been treated unfairly and horribly. Nels will simply remind her that she got what she deserved. This happens in "Harriet's Happenings" (when Laura and Albert give her a taste of her own medicine by switching the printing plates to create inaccurate stories about her (Mrs. Oleson) and Nellie; he simply reminds her that she had a duty to report the truth) and "Crossed Connections" (when Mrs. Oleson is convinced to place the entirety of her savings into the stock market and invest in a failing company ... which goes bankrupt in short order; Nels makes her go back to work to earn her money back).

** Paradoxically and by contrast, Darth Bane in his own novels that tie in with the game and whose writer was involved in writing them bears no grudge over a failed attempt to ''assassinate him'', [[ReliableTraitor since that's what Sith are supposed to do]].

* No one in ''Film/StickIt'' seems to care ''why'' the main character ducked out of the Worlds Competition a few years prior, only that her team lost, even people who weren't remotely involved in the competition. [[Spoiler:She ducked out because moments before her routine, she learned her mother was having an affair with her coach and caused her parents to get a divorce]].

* A justified example occurs in ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-28404-118/DianeCastle%2bXendra.htm Xendra]]'' when [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] complains about how all her boyfriends have been jerks. Xander has no sympathy for her because she only ever dates "bad boys" and is then surprised when they treat her poorly. He even notes that she dumped NiceGuy Owen for being "too caring, too smart, and too interested in what she did with her life".
