* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': After Sandra returns, the others naturally don't seriously consider the idea that she could have changed. Sandra was already aware that it wouldn't be easy, but [[PoorCommunicationKills poor communication, misunderstandings]] and overeager minions constantly conspire to make it even ''worse'' between then. As you might think, this leads to a lot of DramaticIrony - like Sam's unwitting inversion of ObliviousMockery:
--> '''Sam (sarcastically):''' "Unless she had a profoundly enlightening experience she'll probably be even worse than we remember."

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' this is a possible fate for the game's first BigBad, [[WellIntentionedExtremist Teryn Loghain Mac Tir]]. After being beaten in a duel by [[PlayerCharacter the Warden]], Loghain surrenders peacefully and seems to express genuine remorse for his past actions. The player is then given the option to either execute him on the spot, or offer him a chance at redemption by allowing him to join the Grey Wardens instead. If allowed to join, Loghain is sincere in his desire to redeem himself and will even be willing to sacrifice his life to kill the Archdemon in the FinalBattle. However, for many players (and [[TheLancer Alistair]], for whom Loghain's betrayal at Ostagar [[ItsPersonal was personal]]) it was far too little far too late, and many players just cut his head off right there.

* The entire plot of Creator/KevinBacon's character ''Film/TheWoodsman'' is focused on Walter, a convicted child molester trying to make a fresh start and live a reformed life after serving out his prison sentence. Almost all of his friends and family have abandoned him, and his past crimes make him the subject of a great deal of suspicion and hostility from the people around him. [[spoiler:The frustration and despair nearly drives him to give in ''Film/TheWoodsman''.to temptation, but he manages to refrain.]]

** Despite turning over a new leaf at the end of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel "Magic Duel"]], [[MilesGloriosus Trixie]] notices that other ponies still avoid her and whisper about her past deeds behind her back. It also turns out that Twilight wasn't quite as forgiving to Trixie as she originally let on. Compared to how [[EasilyForgiven easily Starlight Glimmer got off]], this was a ''massive'' BaseBreaker amongst fans.

* Subverted in ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling''. When Shinji's grandfather apologises to his grandson for never being there for him and states that he wants to atone for his neglectful actions and take him in, Shinji rejects him... because he knows his grandfather is not sorry at all and only wants to use him.

Her frequent [[FantasticRacism unintentional insults]], [[SmallNameBigEgo superiority complex]], and [[PoorCommunicationKills inability to properly explain her intentions]] led even '''[[ThePollyanna STEVEN]]''' to have doubts about her having changed for the better.
