Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': In the season 3 premiere, Planet Smileyland gets destroyed and any person has the ability to recreate it the way they want. The gang sends Quack Quack to recreate it exactly the way it was, but it ends up becoming a planet where a) everything is made of yogurt, including everyone's precious personal possessions, and b) Stumpy's girlfriend, Ursula, becomes an {{unperson}} since Quack Quack doesn't know her. Kaeloo says she will never forgive Quack Quack. Subverted since he manages to fix everything and Kaeloo tells him that his actions have been ForgivenButNotForgotten.


It is also used as a way of pointing out to the audience how evil a character is -- that they are completely beyond {{forgiveness}} and [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]]. Usually the character being issued the challenge has crossed the MoralEventHorizon, or is a CompleteMonster, so the main character can freely kill them now. Though on occasion the audience still wonders [[MoralDissonance if it was really unforgivable]].

Added DiffLines:

* Meta example in online gaming. Hacking ranks among the top, unforgivable gaming sin, that permaban for first offense is almost always standard issue. To put in perspective, ''VideoGame/EVEOnline'' devs won't lift a finger on you being a troll, scamming people, or just being a jerk to anyone you meet, but even they would not tolerate hacking. Some devs take this further with lifetime permaban, meaning not only your account is banned, but you as a person would forever be excluded from the game and related events, even if you make new accounts on completely new machines (assuming they find out).


* This is practically King Dedede's {{Catchphrase}} in ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor'': [[spoiler:After Esteban's betrayal is revealed, Elena and their grandmother Luisa tell him [[RejectedApology to screw off with his apologies]] and excuses because his actions got Elena and Isabel's parents King Raul and Queen Lucia killed. Esteban desperately wants to redeem himself, but Elena eventually breaks it to him that he's BeyondRedemption, especially after [[DiggingYourselfDeeper he broke out of prison with a bunch of dangerous villains that he then teams up with to avoid taking his sentence]]. On the other hand, their grandfather Francisco [[EasilyForgiven forgives him]] because he believes he has changed while his other cousin Isabel isn't sure what to think of him yet. [[BrokenPedestal Everyone else views him with contempt]]. Elena's anger with Esteban is bad enough that she initially tries to {{unperson}} him, but she comes to terms that she still loves him and that's part of why she'll never forgive him for hurting her and everyone else so badly.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'', if you complete the BonusDungeon, the Den of Nightmares, your party encounters another imprint of the final boss, Shuyin. Paine explains that Shuyin's despair is what destroyed the Crimson Squad, that they went mad and all killed each other.
-->'''Shuyin''': (''regarding Nooj, Gippal and Baralai'') But these three lived. So... I decided to use them.
-->'''Paine''': You'll pay! ... ... (''after the battle'') No one uses my friends.


->''I don't think I'm a hero of justice or anything. But those who'd hurt my friends... I won't forgive!!''

->''I don't think I'm ->''The truth is, I ainít a hero of justice justice, or anything. anything else like that. But those who'd anyone who tries to hurt my friends... I won't forgive!!''is GONNA PAAAAAYYYYYY!!''


* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan,'' [[DatingCatwoman Black Cat]] says that she'll never forgive SpiderMan for turning her father into TheAtoner after he [[spoiler:killed Uncle Ben]], so that he refused to [[spoiler:break out of prison when she came to rescue him]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': After Ritsuko confesses what her and Gendo has been doing with the Emerald Tablet, especially using Asuka as a guinea pig for the project, despite fully knowing how extremely dangerous it was, as well as causing the incident in Beijing with Unit-A which caused half-a-million casualties, Misato straight up tells her that she deserves to die.
* Subverted in ''Fanfic/TheUnfantasticAdventuresOfBizarroNo1''. SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}} and his race might forgive the [[ManOfKryptonite Blue-Kryptonite Men]] for attempting to wipe them out. The Blue-K Men's attempt to sculpt their cubic-shaped Bizarro World into a round planet is an unforgivable insult, though.
* ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'': ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} gets through one week of endless life-threatening battles during "The Apokolips Agenda" because of ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}'s machinations. However, it's when the Dark Lord of Apokolips almost kills [[Franchise/{{Superman}} her cousin]], [[ComicBook/PowerGirl her counterpart]] and her lover that Kara decides she has had enough of him.
-->'''Supergirl:''' I've been through hell and a half in this last week. I've fought Blackstarr, Eclipso, the Zoners, Kralik, the Golem, and I'm probably leaving some out. I almost got zombified because of you. Now you've hurt the man I love, and my cousin, and my friends. I didn't want to do this. I didn't want to do any of it. I hate fighting. But I promise you, Darkseid, if you don't restore them and surrender, you're never getting up from this floor in one piece. I swear it!
* ''Fanfic/{{Infinity}}'' establishes Nanoha Takamachi always fights seriously... but when someone impossible to be reasoned with threatens innocent lives she ''fights mad''.


* In ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'', this is the reason why Herb [[RejectedApology refuses Bojack's apology,]] even when dying at the late stages of cancer. [[EtTuBrute Bojack betraying him]] ruined Herb's life personally (he already had a successful life but wanted a friend to get Herb out through tough times.), thus refusing his satisfaction of reconciling with him.

* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'': PlayedForLaughs in the Issei Hyoudou vs Vali Lucifer fight. Azazel claims that Vali will use his Divine Dividing ability to shrink the breasts of the girls around them. An enraged Issei roars that he will never forgive Vali for that, gains a massive power boost, and beats the shit out of him. Vali is completely dumbfounded by this, his tone of voice in the rest of the battle making it clear that he cannot ''believe'' what he's hearing.

* ''Literature/SchooledInMagic'': When King Randor reveals himself to be a necromancer, his army breaks up and deserts ''en masse''. Even Sir Roger Greenwood, one of the most honor-bound men in Zangaria, considers his oath to the king void, defecting to Princess Alassa and begging her to stop him and save the kingdom.


** A wizard or witch who believes in [[FantasticRacism pure-blood supremacy]] tends to treat any of their relatives marrying a Muggle or Muggle-born wizard/witch (or, for that matter, anyone who supports either this type of union or anyone involved in said union with a sympathetic attitude) as this.

** Robin gets like this whenever someone destroys history in front of her (ruins, artifacts, etc.). In the Skypiea arc, the poor bastard who pressed her BerserkButton ended up begging for forgiveness. Robin's response? "No." * CRACK*
