* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/10731591/chapters/23783283 Echo's of the past]]'' features a rare ''preemptive'' rejected apology. Oliver is about to apologize for the way he's treated Laurel, only for her to cut him off with "Donít apologize if you didnít realize you hurt me before I told you. Donít you dare apologize if it changes nothing. If youíre just going to continue to belittle me." So he doesn't say anything...which ''really'' isn't what she wanted to hear.
** She repeats this line at the end, where this time Oliver ''does'' apologize. She still rejects it, effectively saying it is too late and he doesn't get to treat her better when she's finally ready to leave.

* In an episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', a couple sues their dead daughter's lesbian partner for custody of their granddaughter because they think she sexually abused her. When she's proven innocent, and it's found out they were pawns in the homophobic prosecutor's scheme to discredit homosexuals, they apologize for misjudging her. However, she refuses to forgive them, and she forbids them from seeing their granddaughter ever again.

However, she refuses to forgive them, and she forbids them from seeing their granddaughter ever again. On the partner's side, she's not willing to forgive them because she knows the grandparents never accepted their daughter was gay and partially believed the partner was responsible for "changing" her. She knew they were eager to believe the prosecutor's lies because it gave them a valid excuse to get rid of her.

Sadly, this is TruthInTelevision-- whether or not the offender is truly regretful or that the offended has always holds on to grudges.

* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'': Though Kenshin has sincerely apologized to Enishi countless times, Enishi doesn't care and just wants him to suffer. To be fair, the thing Kenshin is apologizing for was killing Enishi's older sister Tomoe, but [[AccidentalMurder that was an accident]].


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': In the episode "Sanctuary," Buffy does this to Faith, who is genuinely remorseful for her crimes, going so far as to openly threaten to beat Faith to death if she tries to apologize to her for her actions. To be fair, Faith ''had'' recently used a device left to her by Mayor Wilkins to [[GrandTheftMe swap bodies with Buffy]] and used it to her advantage to [[PowerPerversionPotential sleep with Buffy's new boyfriend]], and Faith had [[RedemptionRejection rejected Buffy's other offers of redemption beforehand]]:
-->'''Faith''': Angel told me there was no way you were gonna give me a chance.\\
'''Buffy''': I gave you ''every'' chance! I tried so hard to help you, and you ''spat'' on me!

* In ''[[VideoGame/Persona2 Persona 2: Innocent Sin]]'', when Lisa and Eikichi remember what they had done to their friend Maya ([[spoiler:they had trapped her in a burning shrine many years ago, nearly killing her]]), they attempt to apologize to her. Maya roughly dismisses them, saying that "I'm sorry" is nothing more than a "convenient phrase" used to transfer guilt onto others, then outright attacks them. [[spoiler:Subverted when "Maya" turns out to be Maya's [[ShadowArchetype Shadow self]]. The real Maya helps defeat the Shadow and fully forgives Lisa and Eikichi.]]
-->'''[[spoiler:Shadow]] Maya:''' A thing can be unforgivable, but oh, if they apologize... I say thereís no reason to accept that suffering.

* Near the end of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed'', Altair apologizes to Malik for his arrogance at the beginning of the game, which got Malik's arm cut off and his brother killed. Malik rejects the apology, but not out of spite or anger. He explains that [[ThatManIsDead he believes Altair is no longer the same man he was before]], so the "new" Altair owes him no apology.
