* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', two {{Caustic Critic}}s (parodies of Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert) give Slappy's old cartoons a rather cruel review. Slappy gets even by ''dropping a bomb on their house'', and then pulling a gauntlet of [[DeadlyPrank rather dangerous pranks]] on them at a movie debut, including tricking them into running off a ledge and liposuctioning fat from one of them, culminating in [[CartoonPhysics sending them into the movie itself]] where a hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex starts chasing them. In the final scene, the two of them are on their show again - covered with bandages and in traction - and Skippy clearly thinks they haven't had enough, so he pulls a lever that drops a huge anvil on them.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' episode "Ice Moon Enceladus", the kids set up a sno-cone stand in order to raise money to send astronauts to Mars. Now, an important characteristic of Sean's is that he wants to grow up to be the leader of the first human mission to Mars. Mr. Peterson comes by the kids' sno-cone stand, and Mindy informs him that buying a sno-cone will help send Sean to Mars. Mr. Peterson recognizes Sean as the kid who keeps kicking his soccer ball into his yard, and then Mr. Peterson proceeds to purchase several. In short, ''Mr. Peterson wants to send Sean to Mars just for kicking his soccer ball into his yard.''

* Subverted in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' when, during a scene where Miss Piggy imagines herself as UsefulNotes/QueenElizabethI, Fozzie tells a crappy joke. Miss Piggy is not amused and puts him in the stocks. He asks if he's headed for fifty lashes for his crappy joke, and Miss Piggy snarls, "No, it's ''worse'' than that." Then, much to Fozzie's surprise...

** In "[[Recap/SouthParkS15E13AHistoryChannelThanksgiving A History Channel Thanksgiving]]", Kyle sarcastically deduces that the pilgrims were aliens while being interviewed by the HistoryChannel, which angers the partial Native American citizen David Sawitsky and [[WouldHurtAChild has the boy held at gunpoint at his own house.]]
*** This comes back on him when [[ItMakesSenseInContext an interdimentional Pilgrim soldier mistakes him for stuffing-raiding Indian villain]] and brutally kills him.

** In "[[Recap/SouthParkS9E6TheDeathOfEricCartman The Death of Eric Cartman]]", the boys pull one on Cartman just because he ate all the chicken skins on the chicken they decide to ignore him, despite him having done far worse things than that.

** "[[Recap/SouthParkS12E10Pandemic Pandemic]]". The Department of Homeland Security takes every Peruvian flute band they can find and takes them away to Miami where they plan to make them spend the rest of their lives. Why? For the sole reason that they find them annoying. That is what it seems like, until Part 2, when we find out that the Peruvian flute bands were the key to keeping some monstrous guinea pigs from causing massive destruction. The DMS did that ''knowing full well what would happen''.
** In "[[Recap/SouthParkS15E12OnePercent 1%]]", Cartman responds to being teased about "crying to his stuffed animals" every time he is persecuted by subconsciously "murdering" his stuffed animals one-by-one, staging the "deaths" to appear as though they the were victims of a SerialKiller out for revenge on Cartman, and ''burning down his own house'' Also known as "Cartman's interpretation of 'growing up.'"
** In the Imaginationland Trilogy, Imaginationland itself is evenly split between [[SugarBowl the Good Imaginary Characters' territory]] and [[EldritchLocation the Evil Imaginary Characters' territory]]. The Evil Characters never allowed anything Good to come into their territory or else the Evil characters would kill them. When the terrorist cell attacks both territories, [[FalseFlagOperation they pin the attacks on the Evil territory on the Good Characters so the Evil characters can declare war and]] both sides would kill each other. Then the Evil Characters [[MoralEventHorizon destroyed any excuse that they were as much pawns as the Good characters with their brutal torture and murder of Strawberry Shortcake.]] [[spoiler:The Good Characters, led by Butters-turned-MessianicArchetype, still won the war and [[CruelMercy imprisoned the Evil Characters instead of making a truce.]] [[BackFromTheDead Also, Strawberry Shortcake was resurrected with every other Good casualty.]]]]
** In season 20, Lennart Bedrager is [[spoiler:willing to start World War 3 to get back at Gerald for cyberbullying Fraisha Holengulf The Volleyball Player into committing suicide. Also, because he [[SoUnfunnyItsFunny probably thinks it's funny.]]]]

** Kyle as well, particularly in recent seasons. Don't read Apple EULA? Have fun being part of a HumanCentipede. He also gets AIDS from Cartman for laughing, loses a bet and is forced to suck (at least imagined to) Cartman's balls.

** Similarly, when a psychiatrist was calling Cartman fat to see what the reaction would be, Cartman's response is for [[CallBack "Mitch Connors"]] to [[DriventoSuicide lie to the psychiatrist's wife]] that he's been abusing several women, along with several other horrible actions. That is one ''fearsome'' BerserkButton.

** In "[[Recap/SouthParkS5E4ScottTenormanMustDie Scott Tenorman Must Die]]", Scott cheats Cartman out of makes him beg for the money back (in a very humiliating fashion), burns the money in front of him, then tapes Cartman begging for his money and shows it to the entire town of South Park. So after more mundane revenge pranks fail, Cartman lures Scott's parents to their deaths, steals the bodies, grinds them up, uses the meat to make chili, then makes Scott [[ImAHumanitarian eat the chili]]. He also gets [[{{Music/Radiohead}} Scott's favorite band]] to laugh at him as he cries, while Cartman laps the tears up right off his face. Granted, Scott acted really dickish to Cartman, but even so...

* Tricia from ''WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}}'' has done this a couple of times to her former best friend Caitlin. For example, in the episode "Unhappy Anniversary," Trica has Caitlin banned from every store in the mall just because she was dating a boy Tricia ''used'' to like.

** Jonesy is victim to this in the episode "Over Exposed". When he accidentaly saw Jen naked, she and Nikki decided to humiliate him by posting a naked picture of him up on his job's monitor, which costs him his job. [[DesignatedHero And this is supposedly justified.]]
