** Han ''does'' call Leia out when she complains about the rescue, "Maybe you'd like it back in your ''cell,'' Your Highness."


*** Shingen shows nothing but open contempt for Logan throughout the movie (which is his natural state for every other character). He never once acknowledges or thanks him for saving his father's life, if not for which he wouldn't even exist.

He wanted to [[spoiler:acquire Wolverine's HealingFactor to achieve eternal youth, but he claims that it's for Logan's own good since that what he (Logan) [[DeathSeeker really wanted]]. Nonetheless, Ichiro still seemed at first genuinely thankful to Logan for saving his life back in WWII.

* ''Film/RimOfTheWorld'': The kids are saved from the "Purge Mask" gang when the alien attacks and kills them all; then the gang's leader, already badly wounded, distracts the alien from the kids long enough for them to escape.

Added DiffLines:

*** Continued in ''Film/TransformersTheLastKnight'', potentially worse. The Autobots are still hunted alongside the Decepticons[[note]]In Age of Extinction it's implied that the government believe ''only'' the Decepticons were being hunted, in Last Knight the Autobots are openly hunted[[/note]], and Cade, the one guy willing to help them, is branded a fugitive, to the extent that when it's discovered Cade had a Main/MacGuffin that was valued by the Decepticons, their response is to form an EnemyMine with ''Megatron'' instead of trying to work with ''their former allies'' the Autobots.


* Even Captain Hook from ''[[Disney/PeterPan Disney's Peter Pan]]'' counts as this. After Peter Pan wins the sword duel with Hook on the condition that he doesn't fly, by instead jumping and tying him up in with his own pirate flag, he agrees to spare his life and let him leave Never Land on the condition that he never returns, but not without forcing him to call himself a codfish out loud to humiliate him. Then as Peter rejoices his victory, Hook takes the opportunity to attempt to strike him with his hook-hand. Of course, Peter quickly dodges his attack, Hook loses his ballance and falls into the jaws of the crocodile.
