* Played for laughs in the''TheNamelessMod.'' In a side mission for the World Corp storyline, you have the option of helping Zero Presence assassinate a priest later in the game. The reason for the hit is because the priest has tried to steal Zero's pork chops multiple times.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' includes non-fatal methods to get the rivals out of the way. But the only reason why Yandere-chan is dead-set on getting rid of her rivals? They '''dare''' to like Senpai, too.

** In 2, Nisha took over Lynchwood (it being a present from Jack) and has made her own set of laws. Despite each offense having a "unique" punishment, her deputy reveals that all of them end in death. This includes mouthing off to her, about jack, and all sorts of other tiny things. Jack is no better, as he deemed Death is a perfectly suitable punishment for swearing.

** In the Mr Torgue's Campaign of Carnage DLC, he asks you to eliminate a video game reviewer who gave his favourite game a 6 out of 10. The fact that they are already loaded for bear before you get there indicates this may not be entirely uncommon on Pandora.

* [[spoiler:Kristoph Gavin]] in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' hatches a plan to destroy [[spoiler:Phoenix Wright]]'s life after [[spoiler:Shadi Enigmar, a.k.a. Zak Gramarye]], a high-profile client, snubs him after a game of cards in favor of the less-famous attorney. His nefarious scheme succeeds for the most part, but his failure to dispose of two vital witnesses (thanks to dumb luck) resulted in him having to keep a paranoiac eye on all the people involved for the next seven years, making this a DisproportionateRetribution not just for its effects on the intended victim (''Killing'' a client that snubbed you? Seriously?), but also in terms of how much time and effort he spent on it.

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** In the 4th case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', [[spoiler:Manfred von Karma shoots Gregory Edgeworth and later adopts his son (Miles Edgeworth) to raise him with the complete opposite ideals from what his father had. And to top it off, 15 years later, frame him for murder and have Edgeworth believe he killed his own father. And this is because Gregory gave Manfred one, and yes just one, penalty in court once and messed up his perfect record...]]

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIArena'', ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion ElderScrollsIVOblivion]]'' have guards that react to all crimes by impaling or hacking the criminals into small pieces, regardless of whether you [[AllCrimesAreEqual committed senseless mass murder or stole a clay pot barely worth one gold.]] Even if you ''accidentally'' picked up said clay pot, they will hunt you down. Committing any act of thievery, no matter how small, makes you little more than [[MemeticMutation criminal scum.]] Champion of Cyrodiil? Hero of Kvatch? [[DudeWheresMyRespect Meaningless]] compared to that clay pot you just ''stole'' (probably by accident).
