* ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'' tries to deal with the implications in the Disney version by having the servants take some blame for the Prince's behavior since they did not protect him from his abusive father after his mother died. However this still does not explain Chip (a child) and Garderobe and Cadenza (performers who were hired and simply happened to be at the party that night). The opening scene makes it look more like the curse just hit whoever didn't get out of the room in time. Even worse, once the last petal falls the objects will turn ''inanimate'' effectively ''killing'' the servants and others who got caught in the curse. Belle's town is also collateral damage as they all magically forget about the nearby castle and all its inhabitants [[spoiler: which includes family members and loved ones]] for the duration of the curse. [[spoiler: No wonder the Enchantress shows up herself to fix things once the last petal falls right before Belle can say she loves the Beast. A cut scene even had Lefou call her out on it!]]

** There is King David having sex with the wife of one of his generals and [[UriahGambit getting said general killed in battle to get away with his adultery.]] God inflicts an illness on the child coming out of this affair. David repents and God forgives him. The king, that is. To really teach David that justice has to be done, the child however still has to die from the illness. David, and his new (stolen) have a new son though, the future king Solomon, and seem to live happily ever after [[spoiler:until one of David's own sons goes to war against him]].

* In Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', the household staff are cursed, as well as the Beast himself. The musical version softens the collateral damage by having the staff discuss that they were the ones who had let the Beast turn into a spoiled brat in the first place.

* [[Antihero Lelouch]], the protagonist of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' started war against empire of Brittania, but early on didn't fully understand the consequences of war. Sure, he knew that he's putting his life on the line and that he'll have to kill in order to win, but he didn't care much about casualties on any side, and while he tried to avoid or at least minimise collateral damage he didn't give much thought to it when it happened. [[spoiler: Until he found out that during one battle he accidentally killed his girlfriend's father.]]

This is quite common in many mythologies, where the gods teach someone a lesson by cursing his entire family -- but not necessarily them - or setting up his descendants for misery. Sometimes this is the result of severe ValuesDissonance. In comic books and the like, in StuffedIntoTheFridge's purest form, female supporting characters die so that male heroes can learn vague lessons about the price of heroism, after which said heroes usually find new love interests and generally move on. It's also a part of ItsAWonderfulPlot stories, as the people around the hero have to suffer in the alternate timeline to persuade him that he needs to return to existence.

** As Creator/MarkTwain points out, there had to have the usual proportion of children born to the people of Noah's generation. Then God sent the rain, "and drowned those poor little chaps."
