* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Action'', [=LaShawna's=] teammates decided to abandon her in a vault (where [=LaShawna=] could have died if she wasn't rescued) simply because she lied to win a spa trip.

** In the episode "Attack of the Terrible Trio", 3 teenage outcasts stole Man-Bat's animal mutation serum, turning them into an anthropomorphic Fox, Vulture and Shark terrorizing the school. Then they turned a JerkJock into a feral gorilla, then were going to set off a bomb to mutate the entire school into anthropomorphic animals, because "Once we're all freaks, no one will be" the entire reason they did all this was because they were moody teen outcasts whom no-one liked.

** "The Boys of Bummer" contains probably one of the ''worst'' examples in fiction. When Bart screws up at a baseball game and costs Springfield the Little League Championship, ''[[WhatTheHellTownspeople everyone]]'' makes him pay dearly (only Marge stood by him). In fact, it [[DrivenToSuicide drives poor Bart to attempt suicide]]. What did they do next? They ''kept on at it.'' ''While Bart is comatose''. Fortunately, [[MamaBear Marge]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech set]] [[ShamingTheMob things]] [[Awesome/TheSimpsons straight]]. This is made even worse by the fact it was Bart that pretty much singlehandedly got them to the Championship. There is some LampshadeHanging in the fact that the town was literally labeled the "meanest town in America" and they were proud to put it on a billboard.

** In the episode "On A Clear Day I Can't See My Sister", after Bart plays some pranks on Lisa, she serves him with a restraining order and starts using it to bully him. Eventually, Bart's forced to eat his lunch outside in the rain, be taught by Groundskeeper Willie in a tool shed, and sleep on the edge of the property. At one point Lisa says if she can remember three moments where Bart was nice to her, she'll lift the restraining order (and she can't, no matter how hard she tries. Fans of the show know enough HeartwarmingMoments done by Bart to Lisa that this lack of memory is a ''serious'' BrokenBase issue). Her revenge in the episode "Duffless" is hard but this is much worse.

** In "The Boy Who Knew Too Much", Mayor Quimby's son is put on trial for brutally assaulting a chef for not saying 'chowder' properly. He even threatens to kill his own lawyer (and then everyone in the courtroom, especially those in the jury) in the middle of the trial for doing the same thing. [[spoiler: Eventually subverted, though, as all Quimby's son really did was snatch a bottle of wine from the chef, and all his injuries were accidental on account of the chef being clumsy on a legendary scale.]] A DeletedScene has him trying to assault the chef [[spoiler:for real]] ''right on the steps of the courtroom, after he was declared innocent'' and, yes, because the chef ''still'' can't say "chowder" like Quimby wants.

* Most of the villains from ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' fall under this trope. One example is in the episode "Evil Coffee Maker Much?" where the villain of the week plans on flooding the entire city in coffee. Why is he doing this? To get revenge on a coffee shop for rejecting his job application.

Added DiffLines:

** Inga Bittersweet spends ''twenty years'' plotting revenge against the Happy Girls (a Girl Scouts expy) because she was kicked out of them for eating the cookies she was supposed to sell. (As in disproportionate retribution for a trivial grudge that was ''her fault''.)
** However, Bertha Bombshell has Ingrid beat by a decade; after coming second place in a beauty pageant for "Miss Fish and Chips", she steals an experimental youth formula, and spends ''thirty'' years plotting revenge. (Somewhat justified as insanity is a recognized side effect of the formula.)

* After some heartwarming EpiphanyTherapy, TheDragon and QuirkyMinibossSquad of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' went on to completely trash ([[http://dvdscreenshots.avatarspiritmedia.net/305/836.jpg and maybe burn down!]]) the house of someone who had mildly "insulted" them by kicking Zuko out of his party for hurling a guy into his grandma's vase, and being afraid of Azula. Hey, they ''are'' villains.
** Also there's [[BigBad Fire Lord Ozai's]] solution to minor rebellions in the conquered Earth Kingdom. [[spoiler:Because ''burning the entire continent to the ground'' is clearly a reasonable response.]]
