*** The Joker is even worse in [[Recap/TheBatmanS1E12TheRubberfaceOfComedy "Rubberface of Comedy"]], when he quickly gets angry at Detective Bennett because Bennett tries to arrest Batman - not him - while he's defacing the statue in Gotham Bay. ([[AttentionWhore "I'm the vandal here!"]] shouts the Joker.) This leads to the Joker kidnapping Bennett, subjecting him to MindRape, and causing an accident that leads to Bennett turned into Clayface, driving him insane... Basically, it ruins the poor guy's life.

*** "The Laughing Fish": The Joker introduces his "smile" toxin into the fish supply of Gotham Harbor, hoping to trademark the red-lipped, grinning ichthyoids and sell them in supermarkets. When told that he cannot trademark fish he retaliates by carrying out an elaborate scheme to murder everyone in the Gotham City patent office until he gets his way. Lampshaded in the episode itself.
---> '''Mr. Frances''': Why is the Joker after me? I'm just an office worker, I don't make politics.\\
'''Batman''': And in his sick mind, that's the joke Mr. Frances.

** [[ClockKing Temple Fugate]] developed an obsessive, murderous grudge against Mayor Hamilton Hill in [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE25TheClockKing his self-titled episode]]...because when he was a lawyer, Hill suggested Fugate take his coffee break a little later to help him relax for a lawsuit against his company, which resulted in a series of accidents making him late, which resulted in him losing the suit. Fugate ultimately reveals that the people who sued his company were represented by Hill's law firm, and thus he believes that Hill was intentionally trying to sabotage him. While from an outside perspective it's still a huge, disproportionate leap of logic, from his point of view he's taking his justified revenge.

** Then there's the matter of the last scene, or rather next to last scene, in "Bad Heir Day", an otherwise [[Heartwarming/TheFairlyOddparents touching episode]]. Poof, who incidentally bounced out of the stroller wound up with Crocker for a time. Timmy does everything he can to find his little brother and quickly becomes a BadlyBatteredBabysitter. Poof arrives home without a scratch and Timmy comes in clothes torn, scratched and burned. When he explains what happens Wanda gives him NoSympathy and poofs Timmy ''back'' into the same rabid alligator pit that he was in earlier while trying to find Poof. Apparently, someone who loses a child accidentally, even if they go through horrendous things to bring them back safely deserves to be nearly killed, if not actually. Add to this the fact that Poof is immortal while Timmy is human, as well as a child himself, adds a FridgeHorror element to it if you think too long about it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'', Parnassis frames Ingrid for setting off a stink bomb in the school, even going as far as dressing up as her, with an identical wig, dress and earrings (Despite Ingrid doesn't even wear earrings) and planned to set up an even bigger stinkbomb to blast the whole school with. The reason? Since Ingrid enrolled he was bumped back to "2nd Smartest kid in school."
