This is always used for humor; it often indicates that the character in question is [[{{Jerkass}} callous]] enough that they are deriving amusement from someone's anguish or anger rather than offering to help. It may also indicate that the character in question has no stake in the outcome. Sometimes the character becomes an AudienceSurrogate, giving an in-universe voice to the audience's feelings towards the scene.

This is always used for humor; it often indicates that the character in question is [[{{Jerkass}} callous]] enough that they are deriving amusement from someone's anguish or anger rather than offering to help. It may also indicate that the character in question has no stake in the outcome. Alternatively, perhaps he ''does'' have a stake in the outcome, and is confident that somebody he doesn't like is about to receive a well-deserved comeuppance. Sometimes the character becomes an AudienceSurrogate, giving an in-universe voice to the audience's feelings towards the scene.
