** It's said that in 2075 (two years before the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Great War]]), both the House of Representatives and the Senate voted unanimously to impeach the President of the United States for jaywalking. Whether they had other reasons for doing so or the entire federal government was just being LawfulStupid is left unclear.

** The main story of ''Blood and Wine'' involves this. [[spoiler:Syanna, the sister of Duchess Anna Henrietta of Toussaint, orchestrated [[SerialKiller serial killings]] of a group of knights that mistreated her in the past that were performed by her vampire lover, who she tricked into being an accomplice by leading him to believe she was kidnapped. This was, of course, all part of her master plan to assassinate her sister. Why? [[SarcasmMode For the heinous crime of forgetting about her after she was banished]] (which was all in her imagination, as the Duchess did look for her). And she manages to pull it off in the end unless Geralt gets them to reconcile, and they all live happily ever after (except for the scores of civilians and soldiers that were murdered by a vampire army as a result of [[KarmaHoudini Syanna]]'s actions).]]

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'':
** One of the early [[HunterOfMonsters Witcher]] contracts involves exorcising a noonwraith from a well in a destroyed village. After doing some digging, the player can learn that the wraith was the ghost of a woman who insulted the local lord by making fun of his dead son, leading to him sending men to hang her from the well, murder everyone in the village, and raze it to the ground for good measure. The same lord was also said to have once killed a man for not taking his cap off quickly enough.
** In the ''Blood and Wine'' expansion Geralt meets a noblewoman who was cursed to turn into a wight and live alone for nearly a century for the crime of refusing a strange beggar [[spoiler:(who was very heavily implied to be [[SatanicArchetype Gaunter O'Dimm]] in disguise)]] food.

** In another story, during a wager between the Daedric Princes Namira and Sheogorath, they conspired to see which of them could most effectively ensnare a famous artist. Namira used grotesque nightmares, driving him to make terrifying and disgusting art that made him wildly popular through BileFascination. Sheogorath, meanwhile, did [[WinsByDoingAbsolutelyNothing nothing at all]], driving the artist to madness when his inspirations disappeared, and as a result he began creating angry, blasphemous art that insulted the gods and authority figures. Eventually the artist insulted the wrong petty king, who had him publically executed.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', a crazy lady will attack you if you step on her flowers three times.
*** Some disguised Yiga Clan members won't try to attack immediately when talked to, instead offering to sell Link some [[TrademarkFavoriteFood bananas]]. Refusing will anger them and cause them to assault Link. Granted, even if you buy all 99 of their bananas, which cost 99 rupees each to begin with, they will still attack you.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'': "Oh My God! The doctor just left the Vault! Oh! I know! I'll have his assistant killed, plunge the Vault into mayhem, cause many more deaths, forcefully interrogate my own daughter, and sic my men to go shoot the doctor's [[PlayerCharacter child]] '''on sight'''! That'll show him!" On the other hand, the Overseer is a massive control freak and has a Vault-sized ego. The sheer act of opening the vault doors to leave must have insulted him so much he simply lost his shit.

** The Super Mutant Behemoth known as Swan in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' was once a night janitor working at MIT who got caught stealing cigarettes. Rather than receiving a conventional trial for his misdemeanor, the scientists kept him under "house arrest" for a month while exposing him to an experimental strain of the Forced Evolutionary Virus. Initially the virus [[FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome increased his intelligence to the point where he was able to study its effects on himself]], but his mind eventually began to deteriorate as his body mutated, turning him into the powerful enemy the [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] has to contend with in the present day.
