* Gaston, from Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', stabs the Beast moments after the Beast decides to let him go (rather than dropping him off the roof). Admittedly, the Beast wasn't actually saving him, but it's still pretty bastardly. [[KarmicDeath It was also the very last act he ever committed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Despite saving his ass (and organization!) in both ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' 2/X and 3, Morden still tries to kill the protagonists in 6 and 7/XX. Although he ''is'' leader of the world-wide rebellion which player opposes.
** For what it's worth, though [[spoiler: Either Morden or Rootmars will save the player at the end of Metal Slug 6, depending on what route you took in stage 4.]]

* The Northwest Family in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' were cursed and possibly damned to an IronicHell because of this; 150 years prior to "Northwest Mansion Noir", they had asked local lumberjacks and laborers to build their mansion in exchange for a yearly party between the lower and upper classes. The mansion apparently takes years to complete, with several workers dying due to the unstable working conditions. And when the workers finish and ask for their reward, the Northwests laughed at them and shut them out of the party. It took a repentant Pacifica to undo the damage and it'll be her alone to enter the divine gates.

Added DiffLines:

** In a critical moment when Dipper decides to accept apprenticeship with Ford, Mabel, rather than sacrifice her happiness for Dipper's sake like he did to her countless times and be happy for him when he leaves her, chose to selfishly give the rift to Blendin just for the chance of having an eternal summer and prevent Dipper from leaving her, [[AesopAmnesia completely ignoring any lesson in maturity in the process]].

** The Jedi in general count too. Oh hey look, here's this nice woman who let her son come and join us. If it wasn't for her, we wouldn't have the Chosen One in our order...What's that? She's still a slave? Oh never mind. We'll just let her suffer in slavery and then get raped and murdered by savages. This also applies on a broader scale, what with the typical treatment of families who give up their ''children'' to the Order.

** Ash's Charizard used to a '''major''' example of this. When it was still a Charmander, its [[{{Jerkass}} former trainer]] abandoned it on a rock, leaving it on the brink of death on a rainy night. Ash had saved this Pokémon and took it with him on his journeys. It would eventually evolve into Charmeleon and start disobeying him. Upon evolving into a Charizard, its attitude doesn't improve much and actually costs Ash the Pokémon League Indigo Conference. \\\
It's kind of FridgeBrilliance when you think about it: [[spoiler:Ash gained Charmander through a ''trade'', he didn't outright catch him in the wild. Charmander, in his mind, would still be registered (and if this was the game) to his original trainer. Thus when he gets stronger, and when he evolves... any respect for Ash goes away. It takes to the Orange Islands for Ash to gain the experience needed for Charizard to respect him]].

** In "Dirty Work", Duck gets the trucks to stop singing their rude song towards Diesel, Diesel still goes on ahead with trying to get Duck sent away.

** In ''Anime/PokemonGiratinaAndTheSkyWarrior'', the main characters meet Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokémon. Yeah right... All she does throughout the film is annoy the characters and treat them badly. [[http://duckyworth.deviantart.com/journal/DT-Pokemon-Giratina-and-the-Sky-Warrior-2008-383582483 To put it from a perspective from a certain reviewer:]]
--> ''She also COUGHS dust in Ash's face often (in one case after saying Dawn is nicer than Ash, when really she's stupider when Ash understandably scolds Shaymin, and FAKING being scared so that idiot Dawn can tell Ash off, acts extremely POMPOUS like [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Diamond Tiara]] after she says to Dawn saying Shaymin really is something 'I am? Aren't I?', demands praise after it's revealed she DESTROYED A FOREST (hmm.... are you sure Shaymin isn't a prodigy of HEXXUS from WesternAnimation/FernGully...) and after she APPARANTLY saved them from Giratina even though she didn't do anything to help them out AND she was the one who got them all into trouble in the first place, doesn't thank Ash OR Newton Graceland for technically SAVING her (in Ash's case, TWICE), says FLATTERY will get Newton nowhere when he says Substitute was impressive to trick Giratina (why would anyone want to FLATTER you, you little brat?!), she is actually pretty mean to Giratina by saying Giratina not being able to leave the Reverse World is a PUNISHMENT that befits the crime of trying to EAT her (that is not a crime, I would REWARD anyone who did that) and... worst of all....''
--> ''ALL SHE EVER DOES IN THIS FILM IS PESTER ASH, DAWN AND BROCK TO TAKE HER TO SOME STUPID FLOWER GARDEN...''

*** Jessie does this again when she gets paralyzed and is not one bit grateful to Misty for providing the Salveyo Weed cure, nor to her teammates for going out of their way to take care of her in the first place. James and Meowth even call her out on this.

** The Coalition of Planets that puts Sheppard's team on trial definitely counts. They made some good points (the same points the fandom made about their numerous WhatTheHellHero-worthy moments, in fact) but, as Sheppard pointed out, the Atlantis team is the only thing standing between the Pegasus galaxy and total domination by the Wraith (or Michael.)

* Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli makes an argument ''in favor'' of "ingratitude" in his ''Literature/DiscoursesOnLivy''--if it's the entire population of a free republic that's being ungrateful. Machiavelli points out that free peoples who reward their ambitious citizens who do genuinely heroic things in the republic's service with special rights or political power often end up not being free peoples much longer. He therefore praises the Romans for punishing men who [[IDidWhatIHadTo went to possibly necessary extremes to protect or preserve Rome and its constitution]], [[WhatTheHellHero holding such men to account as if they hadn't done anything special]] and leaving them to take a pardon as a reward. When the Romans stopped doing this and started rewarding heroes with power, that was when the Republic became doomed.
