* The heroes of ''Series/OnceUponATime'', often display this to Rumplestiltskin, follwing his HeelFaceTurn in the middle of the fourth season; regardless of how involved he actually is in a BigBad's plot...

* Stories about the in-laws-from-hell usually feature the bride's parents (and many of her other associates, and in some cases ''the bride herself'') having No Sympathy for her husband. The OverprotectiveDad in particular is ill-inclined to give his son-in-law an inch. ''MeetTheParents'' and ''Series/TheWorstWeekOfMyLife'' are two examples.

* At the end of the Saiyan Saga in ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' Chi-Chi refuses to speak or even acknowledge Goku's existence despite him having every bone in his body broken. Even before then, she jumped over Goku to get to Gohan and ignored Krillin when he pointed out that Goku was badly hurt. Her justification, it was ''Goku's'' fault that Gohan was in battle and hurt. This is ignoring that Goku was dead for almost a year and it was Piccolo who trained Gohan without his knowledge. When he did get to the battlefield, he told Gohan to stay back and then sent Krillin and him away, wanting to fight Vegeta alone. Gohan returned to fight on his own and Goku only told Gohan to fight since he couldn't move anymore. So, she's blaming Goku for stuff he had no control of. She was called out on this by several characters. Despite this being PlayedForLaughs, it's so [[DudeNotFunny jarring and completely unfunny]] many people sees her as a terrible wife whom many cites that Goku should have married Bulma over her.[[note]]The reason Chi-Chi is portrayed this way is because [[Creator/AkiraToriyama the author]] was trying to make a commentary on [[EducationMama "education mamas"]]. Here, Chi-Chi is being portrayed as a gross exaggeration of this type of character.[[/note]]

* ''Series/{{Psych}}'' has a similar problem to NCIS. There are a few very dramatic episodes were everything is taking completely seriously (the yin-yang trilogy stands out). It's more comedy than drama though, so laughing at bullet wounds/kidnapping/near death escapes is pretty common. In short, the characters seem to mysteriously know whether the danger is real or not.

* ''Series/{{Psych}}'' has a similar problem to NCIS. There are a few very dramatic episodes were everything sometimes if not often have the characters show shades of this, and the entire thing is taking completely seriously (the yin-yang trilogy stands out). It's more comedy than drama though, usually played for laughts whatever misfortune it is. [[JustifiedTrope However, Psych is primarily a comical show]] so laughing at bullet wounds/kidnapping/near death escapes is pretty common. In short, the characters seem to mysteriously know whether the danger is real or not.not.
** Also very much subverted whenever the show decides to get serious (such as the Yin-Yang trilogy.) Whenever things get serious, there is a defintie level of camrederie and support, especially when some of the protagonists reach their limits in dealing with the crisises. Examples include [[spoiler: Lassiter comforting Juliet after her kidnapping in the Season 4 finale during her breakdown, Juliet trying to keep Shawn out of harm's way when he is on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge when an old family friend is revealed to be a DirtyCop who shot his dad and even Lassiter gives Shawn some support because of that.]]

* Most women in Robert Jordan's ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' are afflicted with this. Main hero Rand al'Thor is their typical ButtMonkey: He has a never-healing wound that causes him pain every waking moment, he is in danger of [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity going mad from the tainted magic he uses]] (and in fact may have already done so), and, oh yeah, he has the responsibility of {{Saving the World}}. But most women around him for some reason feel that the most sensible way to help him save the world is by making his life as miserable as possible, and doing such things as criticizing him for being rude while trying to stop everyone else from being idiots and prepare for the last battle already. Being [[WouldntHitAGirl a total pussy]], Rand just accepts it. Possibly because practically all his male friends and allies give him shit if he does something like, for example, not kowtowing immediately to Aes Sedai demands for the very good reason that they are a bunch of manipulative [[JerkAss Jerkasses]] in the midst of their own civil war, so it isn't as if he should know which ones advice to follow even were he so inclined.

** Relatedly, a lot of the WarnerBrothers animation stable relies heavily on our KarmicTrickster lead(s) having no real boundary when it comes to revenge or just being jerks.

* 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 [[Recap/RenandStimpy2x07SonofStimpy "that"]] infamous episode (click the link for all of the "stinky" details...).

* Unfortunately, this has been known to happen in schools. In one of many hypothetical eamples, a student who takes great care to follow the rules ([[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight within reason]]) studies for a test, but (supposedly)[[note]]In some cases, it may be perceived this way, but it may or may not actually be the case.[[/note]] misbehaves and is sent to the corner / detention / etc. while the test is going on. By the time the student gets out, the test is over, but the student is not allowed to take a makeup test for whatever reason, and in some cases faces having to repeat the grade the student was in, all because the student somehow "should have thought about that before" he /she "misbehaved". This is especially bad if the student was punished unfairly, especially if the teacher is manipulative or otherwise abusive. It could even include another student causing it all to happen, and either getting away with it, or getting them both punished[[note]]In some cases, the student may have to face the "life /the world isn't fair" explanation.[[/note]].
