** Doubly egregious, as the love interest had decided to ruin his reputation in retribution for the lies of said SmugSnake. For which she never apologizes. [[WhyWouldAnyoneTakeHimBack Why he wants to reunite with her]] by the end of the movie is a question that begs scrutiny.

* ''Webcomic/CheckPlease'' has an implied version. When Kent asks Jack to forgive him and play for the Aces with him, even stating he misses him, but Jack refuses. Wether it was meant as romantic or not is up to interpretation.

* In ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'', Drake gives one to Josh after realizing how horrible his life is without Josh in it (Josh had spent the entire episode being extremely emotionally distant from Drake after getting fed up with the latter's lack of respect for him). He breaks down crying after accidentally giving himself a chemical injury and being forced to take an emergency shower, before dejectedly storming out of the room.

* During the run-up to England's 1976 {{Cricket}} Test series against the West Indies, English captain Tony Greig had the following to say:
-->"You must remember that the West Indians, these guys, if they get on top are magnificent cricketers. But if they're down, they grovel, and I intend, with the help of Closey[[note]]England teammate Brian Close[[/note]] and a few others, to make them grovel."
UnfortunateImplications... where do we begin? For starters, the word "grovel" has ''very'' sinister connotations for West Indians, many of whom are descendants of slaves (especially true in the English-speaking Caribbean, which the Windies team represents). On top of that, Greig was a white South African[[note]]who left for England when he was 19[[/note]] who made his remarks at a time when apartheid was a major political issue throughout the world. The Windies swept the series 30. Greig kept a sense of humour; during the last Test, he pretended to crawl in to the batting crease on hands and knees (a newspaper headline with it pictured read "Who's grovelling now?". Nonetheless, he [[NeverLiveItDown never lived the comment down]] until his death in 2012.

* ''MagicalDiary'' has Damien pull some ''massive'' grovelling, both in-person and via letters, after the VillainousBSOD that results from his [[spoiler:attempt to kill you]]. Not that this affects how your friends will react if they find out that you've forgiven him, of course.
