** It was (no pun intended) the B-plot ([[MonsterOfTheAesop complete with Killer Bee Monster]]) in an episode of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', where Billy got upset over the first B he ever made on a test (in a question about bees, at that).

** Fred is also a bit taken aback in "Supersymetry" when her professor gives her an A- on her last paper. Granted, she didn't dwell on it too much.

A straight A student has just received a report card... along with some distressing news: There is a B in one subject. This makes the student disappointed at having their perfect record tarnished, while others wonder what the big deal is, since they'd usually be content to get a B. When they truly understand how upset the person in question is, there usually is a pep talk reminding them how great they are and offering AnAesop about how an occasional stumble is nothing to be ashamed of. Their overreaction is often caused by an EducationMama.

* This is the StartOfDarkness for Earl P. Sidebottom. Once a straight A student at FlyingRhinoJuniorHigh, his reaction to getting a D in shop class was to flee to the school's boiler room, build a reality-altering super computer, and terrorize the school as [[BigBad The Phantom.]]

* Parodied in the British-Indian sketch comedy show ''GoodnessGraciousMe'', in which a father rants about his son getting a B in A-Level Classical Studies despite having the grades to do medicine at Cambridge; he then rants that his son should be getting a [=PhD=] and doing his undergraduate degree in his spare time, but his son cannot because his spare time is taken up playing soccer for the Milwall first team. The father then becomes incensed that his son isn't playing for Liverpool. [[spoiler: His son is six years old]].

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', "Olga Comes Home", [[PlayingWithATrope plays with this plot]] by having [[GenreSavvy Helga]] forge her titular big sister's report card, so that she ''thinks'' she got a B+. Which causes Olga to go catatonic and stay in her room crying until Helga breaks down and tells her she did get an A.

Also deconstructed with the implication that Olga's reaction is due to their parents, especially their father, going overboard on playing the [[EducationMama Education Parent]] when Olga was growing up.
