* The protagonist's little sister in ''Film/RememberMe'' is frequently a victim of bullying, but she says she can handle it...until towards the end of the film, where one of the bullies invites her to a, chaperoned by her mother, birthday party. The sister is nervous to go, but assumes the girls just want to be friends now...and then later we see her tearfully begging her father over the phone to pick her up, her pigtails chopped off. Apparently the girls ganged up on her out of sight of the parents, held her down and cut her hair off, and then told the parents she did it to herself--and, as her father reluctantly admits, it was off school grounds, so nothing can be done about it. The girls ''still'' mock her for her attempt at a decent hairdo the next week (she was too traumatized to leave her room) at school, in front of the teacher. Luckily, even if the teacher did nothing, the girl's [[BigBrotherInstinct older brother]] [[PapaWolf and father]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome certainly did.]] In fact, when said brother was sent to jail for doing something about it, the father bailed him out and then told him that he threatened all the girls' fathers if they don't transfer them to other schools straight away.

* In the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek,'' we discover that even Vulcan kids display this tendency towards HalfHumanHybrid Spock. Being Vulcans, they're quite stoic and formal about it (Spock: "Have you prepared more insults for me today?" - Vulcan boy: "Affirmative."). They cross the line once they discuss [[YourMom Spock's mother]]: [[BerserkButton a beatdown from Spock ensues]].

** Also revealed to be part of the inspiration for Jason Voorhees' rampages in ''Film/FreddyVsJason''. You'd think Freddy would have a ''little'' sympathy. Oh, wait, that's right, it's Freddy Krueger.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': When they were young, both of the protagonists, Judy and Nick, were victims of two seprate violent bullying incidents where their dreams were ridiculed because of their species. Judy was told she would never be more than a "stupid carrot-farming dumb bunny" and Nick was told that a fox would never be trusted without a muzzle. While the two of them reacted in completely different ways, it was the main factor in shaping their adult world-views and the trauma still affects them even 15-20 years later.
