Like the topic says, almost every anime series comes across this trope. And it's not just in Yaoi/Yuri categories. But a person (like us) tries to befriend the "tough guy" of the show. But the upperclassmen make fun of him.

To the extent where he gets beat up. "Upperclassman A" says; it's useless, give up. And friends of the upperclassman just laugh on, while the protagonist walks away hurt physically and emotionally. Then here comes the tough guy turns his head to the protagonist and has that ":/" sad look, and then suddenly he pounds the upperclassmen.

What's your favorite series that has this kind of scene?

I don't know how to answer this thread, but I will say there are many many MANY more animes are not this "trope" you've described

I don't believe I've seen anything like this in anything I've watched thus far. Sounds more like it would be in more Shoujo series than Shonen.

I don't think so.

I may have mis-word what I said. But there ARE animes where this happens.
