* ''Webcomic/TheBedfellows'':
** On Sheen's laundry list of flaws. The first episode has him coming home from work to punch Fatigue in the face for hanging up on him, after specifically telling Fatigue to hang up.
** In "Aspergers," Sheen claims that he once threw water in a girl's face and called her a whore when she asked if a dress looked good on her.

* Altair's plan for the destruction of Hell in ''Webcomic/WhiteDarkLife'' is done simply because [[spoiler:[[HornyDevil Artemis]] fell in love with him. To do so he absorbs the souls of sinners that have been granted redemption after decades of torture so that he can eventually gain enough power to [[CessationOfExistence permanently erase Hell's entire existence]].]]
** Another example happens in the RP cross work where [[spoiler:in order to get back at Mordred for trying to kill her kids. Tori declares the ENTIRE HEROES LEAGUE her enemies, so that she can deny Miriam from ever interacting with Ne ever again. Yes. Tori attacked her old friends, to attack the person who cared the most about Ne that wasn't related to him, to upset the person who tried to kill Ne.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Gwynn has a tendency to do very nasty things to people for petty slights. The worst example is when she almost caused TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, selling her soul to a world ending demon to kill Riff as revenge for [[WomanScorned trying to cheat]] on her.

** Nale gets this from his father Tarquin. He gets a pair of bounty hunters sentenced to die in gladiatorial combat by screwing around with their paperwork. Although he did it because they tried to extort a large sum of gold out of the him (an extra 42,000 gold pieces, which amounts to 840 pounds of gold), they only did it because they were trying to keep up with the barrage of ''Franchise/StarWars'' references that just occurred. Their "thermal detonator" was a can of soup, they immediately backed down when it was pointed out, and they flat out admitted that's the only reason they did it.
** Tarquin is forgiving of his children, even though they both flat out have tried to ''kill'' him. EvenEvilHasLovedOnes and MoralMyopia. [[spoiler: Eventually, Tarquin gives Nale some proportionate retribution. After a lifetime of constantly undermining him and just after killing his best friend in [[DeaderThanDead an unrecoverable way]], Nale tells his father in no uncertain terms that he doesn't want anything from him. After verifying that is truly what he wants, Tarquin stabs Nale in the chest.]]

* ''WebComic/{{Sire}}'' Susan chokes Paul to death because he didn't pay enough attention to her. It's not PlayedForLaughs, either.

** Chris-Chan inflicts a horrible curse on the Jerkhief that results in the loss of the his family, home, and everything he owns—for arresting him over... something. It was never properly explained.

** Based on rather flimsy evidence, they linked Alec, Evan, Sean, and Mao to the murder of Simonla Rosechu. So what does AuthorAvatar Chris do? Have a show trial with an obviously biased judge, order the four to be executed and then kill them onscreen in the most brutal ways possible.

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' plays with this a lot, although it's often subverted by the fact that in military operations, "overwhelming force" is not at all an unreasonable place to start from. One in-universe saying is "There is no overkill. There is only 'open fire' and 'I need to reload.'" A few of the straighter examples of the trope:

** A planetary legislature hasn't allocated funds to replace their orbital defenses, a couple months after god-like AI Petey defended them from attempted orbital bombardment. Petey finds this irresponsible, and exiles them to the Andromeda galaxy.
** The [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Obenn]] at one point decide to grind one of the protagonists into sausage. Because he was insufficiently polite during his interrogation.
