Not an example: He had a valid reason to target Pepper, she saw the files.
* In ''Film/IronMan1'', the BigBad paralyzes Tony Stark and steals the minature arc reactor implanted in his chest that keeps him alive. As he leaves, he tells Tony, "It's a shame you had to involve Pepper (Tony's assistant) in this, I'd have preferred that she lived."

* Due to their nearly symbiotic relationship, the weapons and technicians in ''SoulEater'' frequently have each other as their BerserkButton, especially the female characters for the male ones.

* In ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', at least Mai is provoked this way when the first MonsterOfTheWeek targets her ill and weak-willed brother Takumi. Later events, in a subversion of this trope, imply that this is the standard method of "initiation" for most [=HiMEs=], with the monster attacks carefully planned by the PowersThatBe specifically to attack their loved ones to draw them into fighting. * In ''WeissKreuz'', to get back at Ran "Aya" Fujimiya for his part in killing their boss, the Schreient girls kidnap his [[IllGirl comatose little sister]] Aya-chan and hold her hostage, intending to kill her in front of him. This results ''directly'' in Aya rejoining Weiss to hunt them down and kill them. * ''{{Claymore}}'': Threaten to rape/disfigure/brutalize the mightiest of an order of demonslayers [[ObstructiveCodeOfConduct pledged not to take human life]]? She says [[TheStoic "Fine, I don't care,"]] and thinks uncharitable thoughts. Kick around the girl that was following her around? She ''draws the guy's own sword'' and makes perfectly clear that, if the order in question has to put her down, he will still be dead. The failure of the bandit in question to keep that hint in mind when he finds said girl in a village the Claymore he threatened just left kicks off a RoaringRampageOfRevenge that was both [[CurbStompBattle brief...]] and '''[[BadAss total]]'''.

* The original series of ''Series/TheBlackAdder'' has the villainous Witchsmeller Pursuivant burning an innocent old woman as a witch, and her cat on a correspondingly smaller stake. He later sneers in the face of the cat-loving Percy that he burnt "Mistress Scott...and her pussycat!" He gets a spectacular comeuppance, after which Percy wisely comments, "I SAID he shouldn't have burnt that cat..."

* In SaintSeiya, [[TheLancer Dragon Shiryu]] was almost dead by the hand of Cancer Deathmask, a purely evil Golden Saint who was completely immoral about murder, even killing children for the lulz. Cue to the image of Shiryu's stepsister Shunrei praying far, far away in the Rozan cascade. [[spoiler: Cue back to Deathmask being upset about that and using his PsychicPowers to grab the poor girl and throw her down a waterfall in hopes of killing her and projects the image ''in Shiryu's mind'' to taunt him with what he just did. See the always calm, cool and collected Shiryu ''go absolutely batshit on Deathmask'' in his only ever UnstoppableRage episode in the series, as Cancer's attempt at murder backfires on him big time]].

* In ''ChronoCrusade'', Rosette and Chrono probably would have never gotten into the demon-hunting business at all, much less try to stop Aion's plans, if it hadn't been for him kidnapping Rosette's brother in the first place. (That being said, he ''did'' have a good reason to go after Joshua.)
