The opposite of RedemptionRejection, where the one who did wrong is offered a chance to be forgiven, but he turns it down. A super trope of ReformedButRejected. An extreme version of this trope is HeelFaceDoorSlam, which happens if rejecting an apology also involves killing the offender. Contrast EasilyForgiven, where it's a character forgiving those who don't apologize for their actions. If the character does accept their apology, but is still upset by their actions, then it's ForgivenButNotForgotten. Contrast TheUnapologetic, where a character refuses to apologize. See NoSympathyForGrudgeholders where this may or may ''not'' be a fitting response to the character's lack of forgiveness. This can often be part of the TheReasonYouSuckSpeech if the rejection is extremely harsh. In a rare occurrence, sometimes the rejected apology was [[OrderedApology coerced by outside parties]]. In the event of this, the one apologizing is shown as more sympathetic due to receiving harsh treatment from both sides and the rejecter is portrayed as even more jerkish and completely unreasonable, however fair that may be. In really [[{{Tearjerker}} tearjerking]] occasions, the incident that led to the rejecter being angry was [[PoorCommunicationKills a complete]] [[ThirdActMisunderstanding misunderstanding]], [[TalkToTheHand but refuses to listen]] to [[CassandraTruth or maybe even believe]] the apologizing party's explanation. In more extreme cases, the rejecter might even turned down the apology while on their deathbed to deliberately spite the one apologizing with PartingWordsRegret.

* Inverted in ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. When Kyo admits to Tohru that [[spoiler:[[MyGreatestFailure he failed to save her mother Kyoko]]]], she refuses to say "I ''don't'' forgive you". Strangely enough, [[GuiltComplex he takes this worse than if she had rejected his apology]], since he feels like she ''shouldn't'' forgive him for it because [[spoiler:Kyoko]] apparently didn't. [[spoiler:The penultimate chapter reveals that Kyoko was actually warning him to keep his promise to look after Tohru if anything happened to her, but she was only able to say she wouldn't forgive him.]]

** There's also ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', where Sam Ichijouji does this to his little brother, Ken, after having caught him using the Digivice they found without his permission (the digivice BELONGED to Ken, but neither of the brothers knew this). Eventually, this causes Ken to snap that he wishes for him to disappear, and his wish came true when he got run over by a car and that Sam died rejecting his apology.
