** Barry's grandson Bart had a similar situation with his evil clone Thaddeus, who, like Malcolm, was raised by the Thawnes, specifically Earthgov president Thaddeus Thawne I, who treated him even worse than Malcolm's parents. He eventually devolved into simply being an AxeCrazy sociopath, however.

** Prior to his FaceHeelTurn, Hunter Zolomon resented Wally West for being able to run around solving crimes while he himself was stuck at a desk job at the Keystone City Police Department due to a previous knee injury. He also felt that Wally couldn't truly be a hero because he'd [[HurtingHero never known personal tragedy]]. Following his transformation into Zoom, he became determined that Wally should see things his way, even if it meant [[spoiler:attempting to kill Wally's {{Love Interest|s}} in front of him]].

** Severus Snape is the series' biggest resenter. He was extraordinarily jealous of James Potter when they were in school together; James was handsome, talented, athletic, and had a loving family while Snape had an abusive father, an indifferent mother, and was a social outcast. The two had a mutual hatred for each other, but when James saved Snape from a near-DeadlyPrank, Snape grew to resent him ''more'', considering it a shot to his pride. It didn't help that James wound up [[spoiler:marrying the woman he was in love with, even if his own idiocy brought that relationship to an end]]. Snape carries that resentment toward James' son Harry.

So you've got your hero. The CallToAdventure has found them. By [[WonderChild birth]], supernatural aid, or just plain luck, he's the OnlyOne to be granted everything needed to save the world: CursedWithAwesome powers, a suit of PlotArmor in their exact size, the plucky supporting cast... basically he's caught the HeroBall and is running with it as far as he can.

But... hiding in the shadows there's someone with a problem. He might be the villain of the piece, but he's just as likely to be working on the same side as the heroes. Really, this is something that goes deeper than good and evil, love and hate.

Maybe he was RefusedByTheCall after all his effort.

* Seto Kaiba in ''Anime/YuGiOh''. Aside from disliking Yugi for having dethroned him as dueling king, he also likely resents the idea that Yugi (or rather [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Yami Yugi]]) wins against opponents BecauseDestinySaysSo, while Kaiba's own hard work against said opponents [[HardWorkHardlyWorks isn't worth squat]].
** Upon accepting that Yami Yugi is real, Kaiba is entirely resentful of Yugi for this. Until he's watching the end of series duel between the Pharaoh (Yami) and little Yugi. He among the others witness Yugi dueling the Pharoah and proving that even if Atem will no longer be with him, he is still not only a talented duelist, but the King of Games. And he does this by [[spoiler: defeating the Three Egyptian God Cards through Rules Lawyering. Seriously, who thought that making Slifer automatically attack every new monster was A GOOD IDEA?!]]
** Kaiba himself attracts one resenter after another in anime {{Filler Arc}}s. There's hus foster brother Noah, who hates him for stealing what Noah feels was rightfully his, and the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Big 5]] who resent the way Kaiba discarded them after all the work they did helping seize him control of the company. Finally there's Kaiba's EvilCounterpart, Siegfried von Schroeder, who resents the fact that [=KaibaCorp=] was able to sign a deal with Maximillion Pegasus and Industrial Illusions first, thusly putting Siegfried out of business.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ's'' Vegeta, who seems to be the inspiration for Kaiba. "I'm a prince, you're the son of a lowly fighter!" Vegeta's resentment is born of his pure, unadulterated arrogance. Sorry, "pride". But then, if you were constantly being upstaged by ''[[IdiotHero Goku]]'' then you might be a little resentful too. Truly, Krillin is a ''saint'' for his patience.

* [[{{Determinator}} Mello]] in ''Manga/DeathNote'' is this to [[TheChessmaster Near]], since Near continually edged ahead of him at their mutual SchoolForScheming. His overriding motivation throughout is to prove himself superior to Near.
* ''Anime/SpacePirateMito'': Ranban's villainous motivation comes from being imprisoned because his body never settled on a gender, which drove him insane enough to get revenge by blowing up the entire royal family (which he was part of)'s planet. Only Mito escaped, and he continued to pursue her, mostly because he resented the fact that she could rule the galaxy while he was denied this right, despite the fact they were practically twins, except for the gender thing.
* Katsuhiko Jinnai from ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' is constantly number 2 in everything, right after Makoto Mizuhara (he gets lower grades, is second in races during gym, and is right behind him in lunch line, presumably among others). So Jinnai declares them lifelong rivals, much to Makoto's confusion, and joins the villains in the other world.
** Actually, in the original OAV series at least, Jinnai was pretty much a villain-in-the-making to begin with. He truly hated Makoto for always managing to best him, but he signed up with [[CuteMonsterGirl Queen Diva]] and the Bugrom because he liked the sound of their mission to conquer the world, not because of his hate for Makoto.
*** And in the TV series Makoto is ''far'' more laid back and doesn't really participate in anything other than his science experiments, making Jinnai's jealousy all the more irrational, and hilarious.
* In ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'', Sai is this after Flay sleeps with Kira. He gets over it midway through the series. [[spoiler: [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Le Creuset]]]] is this to [[BornLucky Kira]], [[TheAce La Flaga]], and [[MisanthropeSupreme everyone on the planet]].
* In an odd twist, the BadAssNormal GenkiGirl giving The Call in ''Manga/PsychoStaff'' is also rather resentful that the {{Refus|alOfTheCall}}er, a powerful esper, [[IJustWantToBeNormal would rather study for uni exams]] than help win an interplanetary war. She also despises an [[MadScientist evil genius]] who thinks that she can beat her with a super suit ("You're both amateur fighters!").
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''...well Naruto himself fits this trope actually, at least for the first half of the first series. He spent the early part of the series jealous of the attention and praise Sasuke received.
** After which it reversed and he calmed down and viewed him as an equal, while Sasuke started to freak because Naruto ''had'' become his equal, or better. Apparently he became the resenter because the SuperpowerLottery ''wasn't'' enough anymore.
** Neji resented the Main Branch Hyuuga for the freedom they stole from him and the death of his father. He especially resented Hinata for being weaker than him yet holding a higher position within the clan.
** Danzo was this to Sarutobi, the Third Hokage, believing his pragmatic/KnightTemplar approach was better than the latter's idealism and that he should have been the Third. In their youth, he actually kind of admired how Sarutobi would, without hesitation, risk his life for his comrades, while Danzo himself was struggling with his fear and anxiety when a suicide mission is called for. Even back then though, he fit the trope, resenting the praise and admiration Sarutobi received for volunteering ''immediately''.
** This played a big part in the schism between Madara and [[spoiler:Hashirama Senju, also known as the 1st Hokage]].
* Sugimoto in ''LightNovel/TheTwelveKingdoms'', who as the series continues starts to take her belief that TheChosenOne was chosen incorrectly to annoying heights.
* In the Scramble For The Throne arc of ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'', Super Phoenix is bitter that a buffoon like Suguru has so much wealth and fame, while he grew up in poverty and obscurity.
* Ultra Magnus in ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'', who feels that as the strongest warrior on Cybertron, he was more deserving of the Matrix than Optimus Prime.

** Between insane Casca and her caretaker Farnese, Farnese feels resentment toward Casca because she often causes Guts trouble out of her current fear toward him. Despite this, Guts still goes out of his way for her and is, in fact, still deeply in love with Casca and is striving to find a cure for her insanity. However, Farnese has feelings for Guts, and although she knows that it is highly unlikely that he will ever reciprocate her affection, she at least wants his merit in the group as a witch in training. Guts does see Farnese as person of worth to his group... but beyond that, he doesn't see her as anymore than a fellow comrade and Casca's caregiver.

** The largest and most famous example was Severus Snape. He ''detested'' James Potter and the hatred was mutual. While James' reasons were never elaborated upon (due to him being dead and all), Snape's reason is because he resented James' life. He was a handsome, wealthy, talented young man with a loving family and who excelled in sports and in school; by comparison, Snape had an abusive father, a somewhat uncaring mother, and was a social outcast for being a dark sullen fellow. Their interactions made it all worse, as both were prideful individuals and Snape hated when James would ever embarrass or humiliate him (or damage his pride), hence why he hated when James saved Snape's life back in school. And instead of letting the feelings go when James died, Snape instead transferred his hatred to James's son Harry.
*** Ironically enough, one would expect that the biggest reason Snape resented James was that [[spoiler:Lily Evans, Snape's first friend and childhood love, married James instead of him]]. This in fact had very little to do with it. While it did add a bit to his insecurities, Snape acknowledged that the fault was entirely his own that things happened as they did.
** It's also implied that Aunt Petunia's attitude toward the revelation that her sister Lily was a witch was partly out of [[GreenEyedMonster envy]], and this contributed to their falling out.
** Draco Malfoy wants to hang out with the famous Harry Potter at the start, but gets rejected because he takes about five seconds to prove he's a [[SmugSnake haughty, mean little twit]]. He spends most of the rest of the series tormenting Harry over all the unwanted fame and attention he's getting and failing to match him in things like Quidditch.

This usually manifests itself in him mocking the start, but gets rejected [[CelebrityIsOverrated unpleasant aspects of Harry's celebrity]] and generally spending more time than he should trying to upstage him.
** Ron Weasley is an interesting example
because he takes about five seconds has to prove he's a [[SmugSnake haughty, mean little twit]]. He spends most of fight through the rest of temptation to become a Resenter throughout the series tormenting whole series. He's the youngest son in a large family of talented children who would likely beat him to any major accomplishments. His family is poor, which others mock him for. He's a close friend of Harry, but Harry over is more talented and gets all the unwanted fame glory while Ron is stuck being the ButtMonkey. While he comes close to turning on Harry and attention he's getting crew, in the end he never does, and failing Harry grows to match him in things like Quidditch. Way to spend your energy appreciate his loyalty. (Fandom, on someone you supposedly don't care about.the other hand, loves playing up this resentment so much that they [[RonTheDeathEater named a trope]].)



** [[KickChick Chie's]] Shadow in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' implies Chie felt this way towards Yukiko, being jealous of her popularity with the boys and general "girliness", while she was stuck in her shadow as the relatively unpopular [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl tomboy of the pair]]. Confronting said Shadow and learning that Yukiko genuinely wished she could be more like Chie helps her get over this, and it genuinely helps that it's emphasized that the two ''are'' genuinely good friends in spite of their issues.

* Marche secretly holds resentment towards his younger brother, Don\ned, in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance''. Doned was a sick boy most of his life, so his parents have to pay attention to him a lot to make sure he gets the care that he needs. Marche perfectly understood the situation and he never acted out on it, but deep down, he held resentment towards his little brother because Marche basically grew up with aloof parents. After Doned repeatedly tries to sabotage Marche's attempts to go home, Marche [[BatmanGambit lures him out by taking on a prestigious job]], and when Doned reiterates his desire to stay, asking what more Marche could want in the real world, March gets angry and tells Doned how much he's had to give up. Finally understanding his brother's perspective and realizing that Marche isn't motivated by malice, breaks down and apologizes.

** The largest and most famous example was Severus Snape. He ''detested'' James Potter and the hateship was mutual. While James' reasons were never elaborated upon (due to him being dead in all), Snape's reasons is because he resents James' life. He was a handsome, wealthy and talented young man with a loving famly and who excelled in sports and in school; compared to Snape who had an abusive father, a somewhat uncaring mother and was a cast-off for being a dark sullen fellow. Their interactions made it all worse as both were prideful individuals and Snape hated when James would ever embarass or humiliate him (or damage his pride,) hence why he hated when James saved Snape's life back in school. All this has led to Snape transferring the hate to main character Harry Potter.
*** Ironicaly enough, seemingly the biggest reason one would assume Snape would have to resent James, [[spoiler: the fact that Lily Evans, Snape's first friend and childhood love chose to be with James instead of him]] actually has little to do with it. While it did add a bit of insecurity, he fully acknowledges it was no one's fault but his own why it all happened the way it did.
** It's also implied that Aunt Petunia's reactionary attitude toward the revelation that her sister Lily was a witch was partly out of [[GreenEyedMonster envy]], and this contributed to their falling out.

** This is the main basis of Fenris's and Anders's rivalry throughout the game. Fenris has suffered greatly in the mage-ruled Tevinter Imperium and thinks that mages can never be trusted to never abuse their power, and Anders was imprisoned in the cruel Mage Circles that keep mages locked away and thinks all mages should live free. Their resentment of the abuses they suffered and their opposing views means that a majority of their dialogue is very hostile. [[spoiler: It becomes so bad that Anders, slowly being corrupted by Justice, actually gives ''approvement points'' if you give Fenris back to Danarius.]]

** In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', Kristoph Gavin became VERY angry when he found that Phoenix Wright had been chosen over him to represent a defendant. From Kristoph's point-of-view, it looked like said client had chosen Phoenix over himself because Phoenix had beat the client at poker and he hadn't. [[spoiler: In actuality, the client wasn't paying attention to the results so much as ''how'' they played the game; he saw a ruthless streak in Kristoph's play that he deemed dangerous. He was right; Kristoph [[DisproportionateRetribution personally killed that defendant and had Wright disbarred.]]]] The ''WebComic/{{Hiimdaisy}}'' comic at the top of this page actually outlines Kristoph's view of the situation very well.

** Minor example with Ron Weasley who, although one of Harry's closest friends, becomes increasingly angry with his ButtMonkey status as well as being poor, in comparison to Harry's fame, vault full of gold, and the yearly chance to shine as the ChosenOne, eventually coming to a head in ''Deathly Hallows''. Ron is also resentful for being the youngest son in such a large family of talented children, so that any of his accomplishments become standard expectations (getting into Gryffindor, becoming a prefect, joining the Quidditch team, etc.) but this isn't focused on as much in the series, except for a few moments.
