** A darker example comes in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' with [[spoiler:[[TheStarscream Goro Akechi]]'s mixed feelings of admiration and jealousy towards the protagonist. Both were labeled unfairly by society and stigmatized as a result (the MC as a criminal due to his arrest for a crime he did not commit; Akechi as an [[BastardAngst unwanted bastard child]] who would amount to nothing for that very reason), but not only did the MC come to not care what society thinks of him, but he gained a network of friends and confidants who genuinely come to care for him; Akechi meanwhile despite being a celebrity detective who went to great lengths to appease society and hide his bastard child image, was and still is overwhelmingly LonelyAtTheTop. His jealousy warps into outright hatred by the time your party fights him, [[RageBreakingPoint tipping over the edge]] even more than he already had, to the point that he uses his Persona's [[BadPowersBadPeople berserking abilities]] on himself in order to kill the Phantom Thieves. To make matters worse for Akechi, the player learns at the end of the game that [[BiggerBad Yaldabaoth]] more or less set him up to fail in his "game," and resources (including the guidance of [[AnthropomorphicPersonification the embodiment of human hope]], Morgana]])that were denied for Akechi were given to the protagonist.]]

** Another ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' example, albeit less potent, is Sae Niijima, the older sister of eventual Phantom Thief Makoto. This [[HelloAttorney prosecutor's]] cynicism in her corrupted field is compounded not only by the sexist attitudes of Japanese society, but by Makoto herself: she has personal standards and a sense of justice that Sae believes that she can never live up to, and to make matters worse, Makoto is still a high school student who cannot really do much to relieve Sae's burdens. Sae winds up snapping at Makoto over her uselessness one night, and her resentment grows to the point that [[spoiler:she gains a [[EldritchLocation Palace]] of her own, built on the [[SevenDeadlySins theme of Envy]], no less.

* This is basically SirAproposOfNothing's defining character trait. Eventually comes to a head when he ''beats the shit'' out of the DesignatedHero and hijacks the entire plot.

** Cersei Lannister is this especially for Jaime, but also for her father, husband and even Tyrion due to their respective positions of power which she believes came from the fact that they're men. While the society of Westeros ''is'' very sexist and she may have had a point back then, she's filled about twenty years since with resenting others and doing nothing constructive with her own position of power as the damn ''queen'', which has led to the present situation where Cersei's completely justifiably being denied power due to her incompetence. She also is visibly this towards Brienne of Tarth, who by her achievements and not being nearly as reliant on being a Tarth as Cersei is on being a Lannister, much less on being beautiful, pokes a sharp hole in Cersei's worldview.

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'': Franchise/{{Batman}}'s motivation against Franchise/{{Superman}}, aside from [[MillionToOneChance the threat]] [[BewareTheSuperman he potentially]] [[FallenHero poses to humanity]] is that in the relatively short time since [[Film/ManOfSteel his debut]], Superman has made a genuine difference in making the world a safer place to live, while Batman has made zero progress in saving Gotham City from crime. The moment he sees a way to get rid of Superman, he takes it without thinking about the consequences. Do we even need a spoiler tag to say this ends badly for everyone involved? [[spoiler:No, we don't.]]

* [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Metal Sonic]], the robotic EvilKnockoff of Sonic, describes his organic counterpart as his "loathsome copy". It's understandable why he hates him, it's what he's programmed to do.

** The Old Testament tells us that this is the motive for [[CainAndAbel Cain's murder of Abel...]] of course when God Himself tells you you're TheUnfavourite, maybe a little jealousy is justified.
** Of course, Cain was never actually told this -- just that his sacrifice was unacceptable and Abel's sacrifice was acceptable. He was even told that if he did right, he would be accepted.
