* 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."

* Linda Fischer in ''Literature/{{Blubber}}'' is bullied to the point of tears to set up for the protagonist's eventual fall from popularity so she can learn a lesson. Unfortunately, the lesson doesn't seem to have much of an impact on the protagonist and Linda never receives any sort of compensation or remotely happy ending after all she went through.
