* In the episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' titled "Slave the Day," the Girls save Big Billy's life. He's so grateful that he tries to do everything he can for them, but this leads to him being a hindrance more than anything else, so they eventually [[UnwantedAssistance (rather bluntly) tell him to leave them alone]]. Hurt, Billy teams up with the rest of the Gangreen Gang to lure them into a trap, but he ultimately can't go through with it since [[IOweYouMyLife they still saved him regardless]] and betrays the Gang, saving the Girls at the last second. How do they respond? Beat him within an inch of his life anyway. To be fair, however, he did tie them to the tracks in the first place. So this is somewhat justified.

** Princess in her debut episode "Schoolhouse Rocked." On her second day of school, the girls remove a bomb from her before it can explode. Naturally, she doesn't learn to avoid the danger the girls get themselves in and goes home to complain about how "jealous" the girls are of her (as well as claiming they put the bomb on her).
** Buttercup in the episode "Down N Dirty" after she finally decides to take a bath after getting fed up with being insulted because of her smelling so badly. Rather than thanking Blossom and Bubbles for even being willing to be near her due to her smelling so bad, Buttercup just retorts on how she only took the bath so she could resume crime-fighting. Blossom even lampshades this.
-->'''Blossom:''' You know Buttercup. You may be clean, but your attitude still stinks.

* ''Film/{{Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides}}'': Angelica is horrified at Jack for sacrificing her father Blackbeard by [[PoisonedChaliceSwitcheroo switching the chalices]] and even tries to shoot him as he maroons her on the island...despite the fact that he saved her life by doing so.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'': The Azalea townspeople [[TorchesAndPitchforks are quick to gang up on a little girl and her father]] [[DispropportionateRetribution just because she accidentally stepped on a Slowpoke's tail]]. Never mind that she only did so to save a baby carriage from getting squashed by traffic, and even ''the baby's mother'' joins in the beating without a second thought.

* In the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse, Donald got hit with this so often that in the sixties ''the fans'' demanded he was given a way to get back at the other characters, resulting in the creation of his superhero/antihero alter ego Paperinik the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Devilish Avenger]].
** As Donald can't exactly get too much of a break, Paperinik gets hit with this once in a while, with the citizens of Duckburg being prone to turn on him at the flimsiest frame-up or celebrating new heroes whenever they appear (never mind that, aside for Paperinika, whose StrawFeminist ways made her unpopular with the male half of Duckburg, and the Red Bat, who's an immense klutz and isn't too respected when paired with Paperinik, said heroes invariably reveal themselves as criminals trying to replace our hero to have free reign to rob the city blind). This, however, [[JustifiedTrope has a good reason]]: in the early stories Paperinik was an outright criminal, one that by the third story had earned such infamy that him (or rather a robot looking like him) flying over the city caused a mass-panic, and the citizens of Duckburg have ''not'' forgotten. Then there's [[WhatAnIdiot those who expect Paperinik to just be their servant even when they know the Devilish Avenger's past]]...

* In the Franchise/BaldursGate series, [[PlayerCharacter Gorion's Ward]] saves the cities of Baldur's Gate and Suldanessellar, and the residents of both cities turn on them at the first ill wind. [[spoiler: That tends to happen when your dad is a murder god.]]

** Towards the end of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'', you end up in position of a powerful tool (that you can't use yourself) that if handed to one of the powers of the Iliac Bay could firmly tip the balance in their favour. While three skimp on the promised payment, with only one of those is it intentional (the dialogue and code makes clear for the other two that you are ''meant'' to get what they promise, the game is just buggy), and it is the ''only'' one to go so far as to backstab you and send battlemages after you. [[spoiler: It's King Eadwyre of Wayrest]]. The sneering about your naivety could be taken as fitting given all the scheming and betrayal going on in the game, except every other alternative realises that not betraying you is the better option, whether out of being a better person, recognizing how lethally dangerous you'd have to be at that point, or being cognizant that there's one more adventuring task left before the tool can be used -- including the person you ''steal'' the tool from if you bother to hand it back personally.

** Lana Skye also comes off like this when she actually tries to confess to murder and ''fire you from your position as her attorney'', but she has a decent reason because [[spoiler:she thought the continued defense would implicate her sister Ema]].
** Wocky Kitaki from ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney''. After Apollo proves him innocent he throws a fit, screaming his head off and threatening Apollo because [[spoiler:his girlfriend Alita turned out to be the real murderer and framed him for the crime]].

Ema. Sadly, she's right, and Ema is briefly implicated before Phoenix is able to get them both off.]]
** Wocky Kitaki from ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney''. After Apollo proves him innocent he throws a fit, screaming his head off and threatening Apollo because [[spoiler:his girlfriend Alita turned out to be the real murderer and framed him for the crime]]. Luckily, his more-reasonable [[TheDon father]] is more than appreciative.
