* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', the protagonists go bandit-hunting in a country where their ancestors had helped crush a rebellion. The natives do not like them. When they save the people of a village, initially everyone hides from them. They later encounter a grateful inhabitant of that village, but that's after they walked away without trying to even get some food in return for the rescue. The grateful man then gives them food and blankets, and points out that he doesn't like people from their country, but that it helps a lot that they saved his daughter from a gang-rape.

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', Ashley attacks Leon when he first comes through the door. He's actually a fairly friendly-looking guy, but he's a heavily armed stranger who comes in the door with his gun drawn, isn't dressed like a cop or a government agent, and immediately calls her by name. Not to mention that a former American agent was involved in her kidnapping, though she may or may not be aware of it. Understandably, she assumes Leon is with her kidnappers.

* Mentioned in ''[[ShinMegamiTenseiNocturne Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne]]'' by a soul you can talk to in the Labyrinth of Amala. It asks the player character what he would do if he saw a bear attacking a man out of hunger, presuming that the player character would probably save the man. However, he notes that, in the act of tearing apart a bear with his own strength, the player character would have just proven himself even more terrifying. This has no direct relation to anything in the game itself, but given what the player character ''is'', it might be a cautionary story in case he does decide to play hero and help people.

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', Ren initially thinks Eldest Whistler's flying tackle is an attack on her (she thinks Eldest is aware of just ''how'' close Ren and Eldest's unmarried brother Jerin had gotten the night before, and in this society, ''would'' react violently to this event). Turns out Eldest was knocking Ren clear of a trap that would have killed her.

* In ''{{LightNovel/Overlord}}'', Momonga becomes this for the people of Carne Village, the first natives he encounters after coming to a new world. He discovers a small army is threatening to wipe out a defenseless village, and decides on a whim to come to their rescue, partly to test his strength. In his old world, he encountered some FantasticRacism due to being a skeletal lich, but in this new world, the undead are rare, always malevolent, often mindless killing machines. When he first shows up, he saves a pair of village girls by effortlessly slaughtering the enemy soldiers that had attacked them. When he offers a healing potion to the injured girl, she doesn't trust him at all. Afterward, Momonga puts on a mask and hides the fact that he himself is undead, but when he turns one of the dead soldiers into an undead [[EliteMook death knight]] and sends it to deal with the rest of the soldiers and save the village, the ensuing massacre is terrifying to the soldiers ''and'' the village.
