*** In fairness to Wilson here: not only was he dealing with his own grief, the whole reason Amber got injured in the first place was because she went to pick up House from a bar, because he was drunk and the bartender took his keys. When someone is involved in the death of your girlfriend (even if it was unintentional), you get to be a little unsympathetic to their problems.

* In ''Manga/SoraWoKakeruShoujo'', Nami's depressed state of mind is not helped by her family's complete lack of love and sympathy. Her sisters practically kick her around as some scurvy dog and don't even once wonder why she acts the way she does.

Supertrope of BadlyBatteredBabysitter. Contrast UngratefulBastard. If a character is deliberately stated to be ''incapable'' of sympathizing with the feelings or viewpoints of others, that's LackOfEmpathy. For when nobody seems to find women enacting random violence towards men for non-existent reasons at all unusual see UnprovokedPervertPayback. RashomonStyle shows frequently have contrasting examples of this: someone who got hurt will usually report callousness and lack of sympathy from the other characters, while each one describes him or herself as the one who acted most effectively and compassionately to the injury. For a fitting StockPhrase regarding this trope, it's QuitYourWhining. For the audience version, see AngstDissonance.

AngstDissonance. If this sort of attitude is aimed at characters who hold a grievance, then it's NoSympathyForGrudgeholders.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': In Season 4, Spike is captured by [[CreatureHunterOrganization the Initiative]] and implanted with a [[RestrainingBolt cerebral microchip]] that prevents him from harming humans; he [[EntitledBastard turns to the Scoobies for help]], and they all take great delight in tormenting him and mocking him to his face, except for [[NiceGirl Willow]], who [[SympathyForTheDevil pities him]]. It reaches a head in "Doomed": Xander is pissed that Spike [[InterruptedSuicide tried to commit suicide]] simply because he wanted to stake Spike himself, and Buffy's line when they go to the high school says it all for her:
-->'''Buffy''': Why is he even here? It's not like he can fight.\\
'''Willow''': If we leave him alone, he'll stake himself.\\
'''Buffy''': And that's bad because...?

*Scott Steiner has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfvGECYB6Gs No Sympy]] for Kevin Nash and his allegedly injured leg. This might also qualify as a character trait, as Steiner never displays sympathy for anyone, preferring to instead call them fat.[[/folder]]

** And what about the time they found Togepi's egg? No matter if Brock was the more experienced in raising Pokémon; what rights did he have to snatch the egg from Ash's hands the way he did and then run off with it? Worse, Misty ''gleefully'' supported it, and then she has the luck of Togepi seeing her first as soon as it hatches.

* ''[[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.

* 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.
