* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness Act VI'': Arial does such things as chewing Kokoa out for her HairTriggerTemper, chewing Ran out for chasing after Ahakon romantically when he's already dating Yukari and doesn't love her like that, and telling Sun that she has to accept that Gin has moved on to Kokoa and move on... when, as shown throughout this act and the previous one, a HairTriggerTemper and issues with her loved ones choosing other girls to be with over her are two of the traits that define Arial most as a person. She refuses to acknowledge this, and trying to inform her as such typically leads to Arial throwing a violent temper tantrum.

An embarrassed or [[{{Hypocrisy}} hypocritical]] character might ''act'' like this, while keeping quiet about knowing the description is accurate ("I'm sure I don't know ''what'' you're talking about"). A disguised character might pretend to be oblivious but [[ButHeSoundsHandsome compliment himself while at it]].
