* Many of the characters in ''VideoGame/{{Machinarium}}'' just chill and don't do much in their crapsack world, though they do help you out if you help them.
** The robot prison inmate, who helps you in exchange for a cigarette, but then doesn't even care to escape when the cell is unlocked.

* PlayedForDrama with [[spoiler:Leo]] from PandoraHearts. After [[spoiler:Elliot's death ([[ItsAllMyFault of which he blames himself]])]], he pulls a FaceHeelTurn in order to [[spoiler:perform his duties as Glen]], but he even admits to himself that he hates everything and that "in the end... nothing mattered anymore."

to:

* Can happen in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress''. If a dorf suffers enough trauma, they'll get "doesn't really care about anything anymore" permanently added to their profile. And they really don't -- unpleasant events will be far less bothersome, and good events will be far less enjoyable. A common VideoGameCrueltyPotential in older versions (when dorfs were much more prone to {{Ax Craz|y}}iness from bad thoughts) was to do this deliberately.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' with [[spoiler:Sans. Being [[MediumAwareness aware the whole world can reset at any time]] has basically driven him to become incredibly lazy and not really care what's going on. That is unless you do the [[VillainProtagonist Genocide Run]] in which case you become such an evil threat he can't possibly not care any longer and decides to [[LetsGetDangerous give you a bad time]]... by laying the [[BewareTheSillyOnes most]] [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard brutally]] [[NintendoHard hard]] [[MarathonBoss boss]] [[ThatOneBoss fight]] on you the entire game has to offer.]]

The meta-counterpart of TheyJustDidntCare. When used seriously, the character has probably crossed the DespairEventHorizon, or overlap with SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids. Compare GivingUpOnLogic. If a work does this to its audience, it's EightDeadlyWords.
