* Snakes are fairly unintelligent creatures and, unlike mammals, do not necessarily learn to recognize their owners. Snakes kept as pets are known to have attacked their owners or family members.

* An episode of ''MickeyMouseWorks'' involved Mickey rescuing Pete from the cold and warming him up inside the mouse's cabin. Being the greedy prick he is, Pete reveals he only pretended to be freezing to death as he and his cousin take over Mickey's cabin. Of course, being a cartoon about Disney's beloved mascot, Mickey not only managed to turn the two against each other, but, in the end, tricked the criminal dimwits into turning themselves into the police.

** In "Zuko Alone", Zuko has a brief stay with a poor farm family after covering for their son and driving off some extortionist Earth Kingdom soldiers. At the end, after the boy is taken hostage by the soldiers (admittedly in part because of a keepsake Zuko gave him), Zuko fights them to save him from conscription. Unfortunately for Zuko, a combination of his firebending in battle and his own [[BadassBoast declaration of his identity]] sees him shunned by everyone in town, even the boy who saw him like a hero not 3 minutes ago.

Inverse of GoodSamaritan and AndroclesLion. See also BefriendingTheEnemy, NaiveAnimalLover, SaveTheVillain, TakingYouWithMe, TakeMyHand, PrisonersDilemma, UngratefulBastard, HorribleJudgeOfCharacter. Compare PacifismBackfire (while this is "Hospitality Backfire") and the FalseInnocenceTrick where a captured villain pretends to be harmless. See also TheyWereHoldingYouBack for a common justification for how the viper is really "helping."

* ''Film/XMen'':
** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Charles Xavier believed that he could help the emotionally damaged Erik Lehnsherr find some measure of peace and happiness by offering the latter friendship and a home, but [[spoiler:Erik repays Charles' kindness with betrayal, abandonment, and a permanent (if accidental) spinal cord injury]].
** In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', [[spoiler:'70s Magneto's sole contribution to the venture is to derail things the ''moment'' he sees a chance to advance his cause at the expense of everyone else. As the endings of ''First Class'' and ''X2'' show, this is something of a habit for him.]]

* Given an interesting twist in a chapter header in ''Literature/AgathaHAndTheClockworkPrincess'' - [[spoiler:[[GenreSavvy Baron Wulfenbach was wearing armor under his coat]], and announced that the snake construct that was trying to change its nature and didn't bite him would be permitted to live]].

* Happens again and again whenever the heel is a DirtyCoward. You can bet [[HoldYourHippogriffs farthings to fritters]] that as soon as the face has overpowered the heel, he'll be on his knees crying: [[BigNo "Nooo! Noooooo!"]] Any face who is not GenreSavvy enough to just hit the guy anyway after that will be deservedly punished with a thumb to the eye or an even more painful indignity. (If Wrestling/RicFlair is the heel, the odds of this ''not'' happening are nil.)

** An earlier episode had Marge take an interest in reforming Jack Crowley, a prisoner convicted of armed robbery (voiced by Creator/MichaelKeaton) by encouraging his casual interest in art. The warden agrees to let Marge take Jack into her home and help him find a job as a mural painter. When Marge hears that Principal Skinner wants a mural painted for Springfield Elementary, she suggests Jack for the task. But Skinner forces him to paint a [[TastesLikeDiabetes treacly, cutesy scene]] instead of what he actually wanted to paint - and then, to add insult to injury, Skinner has Jack take all the blame when the mural proves unpopular. Jack has to be restrained from physically assaulting the principal, and soon afterward a plot to burn down the school is uncovered. Marge finds Jack hiding in the playground and accuses him of going back to a life of crime; Jack lies that he's innocent, prompting Marge to believe him and to help him escape. Marge's reward for this is seeing Jack pour gasoline on Skinner's car and light ''that'' on fire in full view of everyone, [[LaughingMad laughing diabolically]]. Jack is quickly arrested and finally confesses to indeed starting the school fire, but [[BlatantLies not the car fire]], leaving Marge disgusted.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Griffon the Brush Off," Pinkie Pie declares that she'll have to do something about Rainbow Dash's PoisonousFriend Gilda. We're led to believe this involves provoking Gilda with party pranks until she loses her temper and Rainbow can see how bad she is, but it turns out Rainbow herself set up the pranks and it was only chance that Gilda ran into all of them; Pinkie's plan was simply to throw a party for her in the hopes that it would get her to lighten up. Needless to say, it fails miserably, but at least Rainbow does learn Gilda's true nature and kicks her to the curb. However four seasons later it ends up subverted, when Gilda reappears and gets her redemption.
