* The thought of your favourite fictional character being KilledOffForReal is something that makes all fans shudder, but Annie Wilkes (played with considerable menace by Kathy Bates) in the film adaptation of ''Literature/{{Misery}}'' takes being a LoonyFan to [[NightmareFuel nightmarish degrees]]. When she reads a draft of Paul Sheldon's latest Misery novel and learns of the titular heroine's DeathByChildbirth, Annie's mood is... [[{{Understatement}} foul indeed]].

** Do not remove [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane's]] mask. Ever. When the CIA agent asks him if pulling it off would kill him, Bane calmly remarks, "It would be extremely painful." Literal truth! It's an anasthetic mask that's crucial for his survival due to the injuries he got in the Pit. He then promptly turns the comment into a threat by adding ''for you.''" [[spoiler: In their second fight, when Batman damages Bane's mask, Bane ignores all forms of fighting and just starts punching through columns. Unfortunately for him, his anger just let Batman beat him even more easily, and is fully afraid of Batman.]]

** [[AllThereInTheManual The Pitch Black DVD special feature]] ''Johns Chase Log'' explains exactly why Riddick seems to harbour a large amount of animosity to Johns, compared to....

Johns [[spoiler:almost certainly would have gone through with it if Riddick had called his bluff, judging by how quickly Johns decides that they should sacrifice the young child of the group.]]

* ''Film/PulpFiction'': Do NOT fuck Marsellus Wallace like a bitch (in fact, do NOT fuck him, period, unless your name happens to be Mia Wallace), or you ''will'' be fucked, all right--fucked like an unarmed idiot confronted by a pair of armed hitmen (one of whom happens to be erudite). If you're lucky, you'll just lose your L.A. privileges. If you're ''really'' unlucky (in the case of his rapist Zed), he will "[[ColdBloodedTorture get medieval on your ass.]]"

* Paul Kersey of the ''Film/DeathWish'' series is an equal-opportunity vigilante crook-killer, but he is a lot more vicious when dealing with rapists, muggers and drug addicts, all of whom were responsible for his greatest tragedies.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/FamilyReunion'': When Richard mentions he got supplies for the planned Winfield family reunion for free via a variety of deals, Elizabeth Winfield yells at him--the first time, by her own admission, she had ever yelled at one of her own students. She prides herself in values and will not stand for her family's name, let alone her own, being cheapened.
