"The price of greatness is responsibility."

Responsibility is something that we are expected to accept. Commonly, it's something that we're obligated to do (going to a job, taking care of children, etc.) Most of the time, responsibility is something we have a problem dealing with and we would rather be free from the weight it puts on us, which at times can cause more problems. Here are tropes dealing with characters taking responsibility and the lack thereof.

See Blame Tropes for when characters hold other people responsible, and the Indebted Index for when taking responsibility requires giving something of value.
