* Several years ago, Reed Hastings, the founder of online movie-streaming service Netflix, was laughed out of the room when he attempted to merge with BlockBuster. This would eventually lead to the latter's downfall.

Added DiffLines:

* This trope is why, in the military, you never ''ever '''ever''''' piss off a cook, a supply tech, or a construction engineer. Finding yourself handed a cold military ration while everyone else is served real food or losing power or heat in your tent and being told "[[BlatantLies it won't be fixed for at least a week because supply needs to acquire parts]]" is bad enough, but remember they could also pull this on [[RevengeByProxy all your buddies]] as well...

* ''Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac'': Deconstructed by Cyrano: he has been TheGrotesque all his life, now he is the most BadAss swashbuckler in all Paris. Notice that this, instead of diminish the bullying he suffers, makes [[BullyingADragon him even more bullied]] and contributes to [[{{Tragedy}} Cyrano’s downfall]].

* The UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} High shooters are sometimes falsely portrayed as this. Many other school shooters, both before and after, were this trope to a T (sometimes) but they were not. There's also the 2007 Virginia Tech shooter Seung Hui Cho. His videos that he mailed to NBC directly stated that this was his motive (although, the truth is that Cho was severely mentally ill and his motive had little basis in reality).

* Raistlin Majere from ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' has this as part of his initial motivation to gain power, having been born sickly and not expected to survive and always feeling that he stood in the shadow of his [[CainAndAble twin brother]] [[PolarOppositeTwins Caramon]]. Early on in the first book launches into a rant against his friend Tanis about this that Tanis' narration notes he's done so many times that he's just used to it. This also foreshadows his eventual FaceHeelTurn where he takes the black robes of an evil wizard. He then outgrows these feelings and moves on to far greater plans and [[KillTheGod far bigger targets]].
