* For that matter, ''Film/StarWars'' itself. So the planet Alderaan is a hotbed of covert support for the Rebellion, but not much more than that since they have no weapons? Clearly the answer is to ''destroy the entire planet,'' killing billions and outraging the entire galaxy.

Clearly the answer is to ''destroy the entire planet,'' killing billions and outraging the entire galaxy. Tarkin's justification only works [[MetaphoricallyTrue From A Certain Point Of View]]: the Rebel base on Dantooine is remote, and Alderaan will make a far better example to the rest of the Galaxy.

** Doc's murder also applies. As his tombstone says, he was killed over a matter of $80. What happened, you may ask? Doc shot Tannen's horse, the horse threw a shoe, which caused Tannen to break a bottle of whiskey, and he took his anger out on the horse by shooting it dead. In Tannen's mind, it's Doc's fault all this happened, and therefore he owes him money for the horse and the whiskey.

** How dare Evan Baxter be a better news reporter than Bruce! Better completely embarrass him on live TV by fiddling with the teleprompter. And (in a deleted scene) light him on FIRE. [[KickTheDog Twice]].

** How dare Evan Baxter ''woud've'' been an example of this. He teases Bruce on what's implied to be a better news reporter than Bruce! Better completely embarrass near-constant basis and arranges for him on to hear him get the job they both wanted while he's live TV by fiddling with on another set. In the teleprompter. And (in a deleted scene) light final cut, Bruce pays him back by making him embarassing himself via hypnosis. In the ''original'' cut, however, he makes blood gush out of his nose uncontrollably, and then lights his head on FIRE. [[KickTheDog Twice]].



* ''Film/LawAbidingCitizen'' could have been called Disproportionate Retribution: The Movie. Clyde Shelton's (Gerard Butler) wife and child are murdered and the prosecutor Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) cuts a deal against Clyde's wishes, the result of which is that the accomplice gets the chair while the man who actually committed the murders gets to walk. Ten years later, Clyde wreaks revenge (including a bonus punishment for the already condemned man), then sets about destroying the entire US legal system, leaving Nick alive so that he can witness the devastating consequences of a difficult, justifiable decision he made 10 years ago. He also [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope kills a lot of people]] [[MisplacedRetribution who had little to nothing to do with the deal]], including Nick's assistant.

** The cop who pulls over then shoots a pimp who used drain cleaner to kill one of his prostitutes. Granted, the heinous nature of his crime and his Jerkass nature probably means [[AssholeVictim the pimp deserved it]].



* God's punishemnt to Azrael seems a bit harsh. He sends the ones who rebelled and fought against him to Hell, fair enough. Azrael gets the same treatment for refusing to fight on either side. Was there something wrong with purgatory?



* In ''Film/FirstBlood'', the main antagonist and his buddy fit the bill, big-time, and their actions pretty much cause the entire mess. Teague harasses Rambo for pretty much no reason, refuses to let him buy himself a simple meal in his town, and then, kicks him out of it. When Rambo decides to defy him, Teague arrests for vagrancy, roughly shoves him around, and tries to bully him into giving up his right to remain silent. His buddy, meanwhile, tries to murder Rambo in cold blood when he's become an escaped fugitive. Not because he thinks he's an immediate threat, but because he hurt him in self-defense while making his escape. Keep in mind, this was the man who ''beat the shit out of him for kicks!''
* In ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning'' the psychotic Vic brutally murders manchild Joey with an axe due to finding him too talkative.

** So, the Enchantress curses the selfish young Prince for not giving her shelter and turns him into a Beast. Given she had been disguised as a helpless old woman and his actions at the time would've been a death sentence, one can understand her perspective. Cursing the entire staff, including Mrs.Potts children, whi had no say whatsoever was going a bit far.

* Lil Ze in ''Film/CityOfGod'' shot a member of his gang for irritating him with incessant talking. This is the same Lil Ze who, after he asked a woman to dance at a club and she turned him down, [[spoiler:humiliated her boyfriend by forcing him to strip naked on the crowded dance floor at gun point, followed them home, raped her while the boyfriend was made to watch and then murdered the boyfriend's brother and had his gang shoot up his home, killing his uncle]]. He's not much for restraint.

* ''Film/FirstBlood''. A motorcycle is stolen, a helicopter's windshield is smashed, a deputy is killed in a fall from said helicopter, a nighttime ambush ends with three doberman hounds dead and both the owner of said hounds and a bunch of other deputies injured, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a National Guard lieutenant has the worst day of his life]], an Army truck is hijacked, a bunch of police cars are smashed (possibly resulting in a couple more fatalities), a gas station is destroyed, and a police station is shot up. ''In that order.'' The reason for all this malicious mischief and mayhem? ''A small town sheriff refused to let [[Franchise/{{Rambo}} a certain Green Beret]] eat within his city limits.'' One thing just led to another after said Green Beret escaped police custody, and he got progressively angrier with the sheriff after the dead deputy had tried to murder him in cold blood against orders, until the UnstoppableRage began the minute the lieutenant shot up the mine where he was hiding and blew it up. As soon as he emerged from the wreckage alive, he really went to town on the small town. It got to the point where ''he would've killed the sheriff'' had Colonel Trautman not [[WhatTheHellHero intervened and talked him out of it]].
-->'''John J. Rambo''': There wouldn't be any trouble if it wasn't for that kingshit cop. All I wanted was something to eat. But the man kept pushing, sir.

** The retribution for the lake incident was to somehow move the offending twin and her roommates' beds and dressers onto the roof of their cabin. Words cannot describe the retribution for that.
*** But they can try. Offended twin goes into the other twin's room at night and booby traps the entire room. Any movement by the girls in the room would cause water balloons to fall from the ceiling, shaving cream and honey to coat everything, and to top it off, anyone unfortunate to open the door gets tarred and feathered. That unfortunate person happens to be the camp counselor. HilarityEnsues.

* In ''Film/{{P2}}'', a drunken coworker tries to molest the heroine in an elevator after a Christmas office party. When the heroine's stalker sees this, he kidnaps the coworker, ties him to a chair, and rams him into a concrete wall with a car, squashing him to death.



* ''Film/{{Unforgiven}}'' uses this a few times. A prostitute is left scarred for life after being slashed all over her face and body with a knife for laughing at a client. He and his companion are both assassinated by Will Munny for the deed, even though the slasher's companion was only marginally involved and felt remorse. Later, Munny's companion is killed, so he slaughters everyone in the bar displaying his body. Munny also did things like that before he retired: "Remember that drover I shot through the mouth and his teeth came out the back of his head? I think about him now and again. He didn't do anything to deserve to get shot, at least nothin' I could remember when I sobered up." Finally, he threatens of anyone who messes with him "I'll kill him, his wife and all his friends...and burn his house down".

* The climax of ''Film/BreakerBreaker'' has love interest Arlene put out a CB distress call to try and save JD (ChuckNorris) from the local corrupt police. Cue responses from every big rig driver in the area, looking to help out favorite son JD and to get some payback on the WretchedHive of Texas City. They then proceed to drive their rigs literally right through the town, destroying it. Yes, it was a town that ran on hijacking trucks and generally being miserable bullies, but they (the truckers) didn't know how many of the people they'd just terrorized and made homeless were actively in on it.

** It's generally implied that he's done it lots of times - often enough to become a familiar face to the Head Guard Razoul.
** The fruit vendor nearly cuts off Jasmine's hand for stealing an ''apple. That she didn't even steal for herself.'' An example of TruthInTelevision for the period the film takes place in.
*** An even worse example of a [[FridgeHorror potential disproportionate retribution]], imagine what would've happened to the vendor if Aladdin hadn't stopped him and word got out that he cut off the hand of the princess...
* Disney's version of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'': "I'm going to transform you into a monster, and your entire household of innocent bystanders into sentient household appliances, and impose an arbitrary time limit on all of you because you don't give out handouts." Granted, she was disguised as a freezing old woman at the time, but honestly, would it have hurt her to ''at least leave the servants alone?''
** ''He was also 11 at the time.'' Remember how the rose was supposed to die on the Beast's 21st birthday, and when Mrs. Potts said they'd been cursed for ten years? Yeah. Pretty disproportionate.
*** This one was eventually fixed in the musical. First, the Beast is cursed as a young man (not at 11); second, he's cursed because he's a selfish brat ''in general'' (and not merely because he refused an old woman once); and finally, the servants are punished with good reason because they helped the prince become a selfish brat in the first place.
