* An episode of ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' has the family going back to their old home of Chicago for a funeral. Huey sees his old best friend Cairo, who took it badly when Huey moved. At the funeral, Cairo snaps at him and calls him a "fake nigger", causing a fight to break out. Huey later goes to his house and apologizes for the fight. He offers his hand to Cairo, who takes it...and yanks him forward, headbutting him so hard that he flys off the porch. Well, that's one way to reject an apology.

* ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'': In issue 10, SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} finally confessed and tried to apologise for what they did in ''Comicbook/JourneyIntoMystery'' [[spoiler:(murdered and body-snatched their own child self)]], and Thor perfectly understandably snapped. Rejected is putting it mildly, beaten to an inch of their life more like it. Most heartbreakingly: Loki actually ''meant it'', and didn't fight back at all.

Whether Bob's [[ThisIsUnforgivable actions were ]][[MoralEventHorizon that bad]] or Alice is just a plain {{Jerkass}}, she refuses to forgive him.

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 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 of their actions, then it's ForgivenButNotForgotten. Contrast TheUnapologetic where a character refuses to apologize. See NoSympathyForGrudgeholders where this is the fitting response of the character's lack of forgiveness. This can often be part of the TheReasonYouSuckSpeech if the rejection is extremely harsh. In a rare occurrence, sometime the rejected apology was [[OrderedApology coerced by outside parties]]. In the event of this, the one apologizing is shown more sympathetic due to receive harsh treatment from both sides and the rejector is portrayed as even more jerkish and completely unreasonable.

** There's also ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' where Sam Ichouji does this to his little brother, Ken, after having caught him getting his Digivice without his permission. 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.
* 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.]]
