* In ''Literature/{{Persuasion}}'', Captain Wentworth takes a long time to stop being angry that his love Anne Elliot broke their engagement while he was Lieutenant Wentworth, as she was persuaded by her godmother that he was UnableToSupportAWife. She thought she was doing ''him'' a favor by freeing him from an unwise engagement, but Wentworth was sure that he'd soon win prizes and get rich, and as fortune of war resulted in his optimism bearing fruit, he didn't see any justification to Anne and Lady Russell's misgivings. It's brought up that he could have renewed his addresses after gaining his own command but chose not to, and when he returns as a rich captain he talks a whole lot about how he thinks firmness of mind is the most important trait in a woman while flirting with the spirited Louisa Musgrove. (He later comes to deeply regret this.)

* Several of [[CoDragons the Forsaken]] in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series were originally good guys who switched sides because they couldn't compare to TheChosenOne leading humanity's forces. Especially notable is Demandred, who was AlwaysSecondBest, in every single way, up to and including height. Sammael and Be'lal were also notable resenters, though their hatred for Lews Therin was said to pale beside Demandred's, even though they had more direct reason.

So he started developing a plan that resulted in the death of her husband, the Seven Kingdoms being deep in debt, hundreds of thousands of people dying in a pointless war, and consequently being totally unprepared for oncoming ZombieApocalypse... all because he did not get the girl he loved (or, rather, lusted after).]]

** Catelyn resents her husbandís illegitimate son, Jon Snow, for several reasons -- but it has little to do with Jonís own character, which is of the [[HeroicBastard heroic kind]], but has to do with circumstances which have affected her: 1) Ned cheated on her, leading to Jonís conception; 2) Ned's fierce protectiveness of Jon, whom Ned loves and openly acknowledges as his own son, raising Jon alongside the trueborn children. From this, Catelyn concludes that Ned must have loved Jon's mother deeply and when she asks Ned who Jon's mother is, Ned is so intimidating that he actually ''scares'' her -- leading to her fears that maybe Ned loved Jon's mother more than her; and 3) that Jon looks more like a Stark than any of the children (aside from Arya) she bore Ned, who all inherited more of her features. As a result of Westerosi societal prejudice against illegitimate children and the history of the Backfyres pretty much being responsible for these negative connotations, Catelyn fears that someday Jon or his children might be a threat to the inheritance claims of her own trueborn children -- even though (as her son Robb argues to her) Jon would never be a threat as Jon deeply loves his half-siblings, is loyal to them, and he is very moral (and, unbeknownst to her, Jon ''turns down'' inheriting Winterfell, out of consideration for his siblingsí claims and for the sake of duty). In the [[Series/GameOfThrones television adaptation]], she admits that she was unfair to Jon, who she recognizes is an innocent child, and feels guilty over it. In the book series itself, she never interferes in the close bonds Jon shares with his half-siblings and she has moments of softness wherein she wonders if Jon's mother prays for him as she prays for Robb.

* In ''Literature/MemoirsOfAGeisha'', Chiyo and Pumpkin are taken under the wings of the famous geisha Mameha and Hatsumomo, respectively, and are taught by them to become top-rank geisha. Initially, Chiyo and Pumpkin are good friends, but because they're being taught by rivals, the friendship is effectively ended. Despite that, they remain on good terms until Mameha decides that to secure Chiyo (now Sayuri)'s place in the okiya and get her adopted as the daughter and heir, they must first make Sayuri the breadwinner, and then they must drive Hatsumomo out. They do this successfully, but Sayuri never realises that by getting rid of Hatsumomo, she's effectively torpedoed Pumpkin's chance to be a very successful geisha. Pumpkin not only realises it, but she becomes very angry at Sayuri as time passes.

* In ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', one of the reasons Saruman fell from grace was because he resented Gandalf. Saruman the "Wise" might have been the person everyone turned to for advice and counsel, yet Gandalf was the one everyone ''liked'' and trusted. Basically, Saruman was the guy people would visit only when they wanted something, while Gandalf was the guy people would invite to parties.

** Seto Kaiba resents Yugi for having dethroned him as the dueling king. He also likely resents the idea that Yugi (or rather his SuperpoweredEvilSide Yami Yugi) beats his opponents BecauseDestinySaysSo, whereas Kaiba himself has to work hard to beat his opponents -- and HardWorkHardlyWorks. He eventually gets over this when he sees Yugi fight ''against'' Yami Yugi and hold his own.

** Barry's previously-unknown EvilTwin Malcolm Thawne, better known as the supervillian Cobalt Blue, was separated from his real family at birth to cover up the attending doctor's accidental killing of another child on the same night. Malcolm grew up with the second couple, who were AbusiveParents and con artists; the abuse was exacerbated by them knowing he wasn't really theirs (something Malcolm himself wouldn't learn until years later).

* In the Literature/CiaphasCain novel ''The Traitor's Hand'', Tomas Beije profoundly dislikes his old classmate Cain. It's difficult to pin his resentment on any one event without bringing in almost every personality trait of Cain's, but in a quick comparison, Cain is fun-loving, mischievous, not particularly pious, incredibly likeable, ReallyGetsAround, and frequently tackled Beije whenever a scrumball game came up. As of him growing up, not much of that changed, through he also seemed decidedly slack on discipline (In other words, he wasn't a trigger-happy task master) in his regiment, and appeared to spend a significant amount of time away from his official duties as a commissar. Beije is... none of those things, and was devoutly religious and a tattletale. However, one of them was stuck with an unremarkable Tallarn unit, while another happens to be regarded as one of the Imperium's greatest heroes, and is the current Commissar to the famed Valhallan 597th. Given the title, you can probably guess which is which. Eventually, Beije attempts to discredit Cain, due to his jealousy over Cain getting everything handed to him and having everything come easy. This backfires spectacularly.
