While the RealLife violent deaths of certain dictators and certain kinds of criminals might qualify for this trope, which ones qualified and which ones didn't would be endlessly debated, depending on your perspective, so we kindly ask that you [[NoRealLifeExamplesPlease refrain from adding any real life examples]].

** Beadle Bamford snaps the neck of a bird Anthony wanted to give to Johanna, sends her to Fogg's Asylum on Judge Turpin's orders, and was responsible for the arrest and transportation of Sweeney himself back when he was Benjamin Barker. And Judge Turpin, the main target of Sweeney's vengeance, is an even bigger bastard, his creepy lust toward both Sweeney's wife and his daughter kicking off the plot in earnest, and doing things like sentencing an eight-year-old boy to death by hanging while not giving a blessed damn about his actual guilt or innocence.

* Pirelli in ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', a SnakeOilSalesman who passes off "piss and ink" as a hair tonic, beats Toby, and [[MuggingTheMonster tries to blackmail Sweeney]]. Also, Beadle Bamford and eventually, Judge Turpin. And at the end, Mrs. Lovett and [[VillainProtagonist Sweeney Todd.]]

** And in
the end, Mrs. Lovett and [[VillainProtagonist thoroughly deserves her end for [[spoiler:locking Toby in the evil basement so that she can have Sweeney Todd.]]kill him, and not letting Sweeney know that his wife was still alive -- even leading him to believe that she was dead -- because she wanted Sweeney for herself]]. And after [[spoiler:every murder he's committed aside from Judge Turpin, Beadle Bamford, Pirelli and Mrs. Lovett]], Sweeney Todd himself also qualifies.

Compare PayEvilUntoEvil, where otherwise evil actions are portrayed as OK as long as the victims deserve it. Conversely, someone may protest IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim. KickTheSonOfABitch is when the bad guy is genuinely malicious, but their victim just happened to be an asshole. The de facto target of the VigilanteMan, and by definition the target of the SerialKillerKiller, WifeBasherBasher, and KarmicThief.

Added DiffLines:

** The Literature/BookOfEsther doesn't tell us much about Vashti, except that she refused to obey her husband, King Ahasuerus, and thus lost her crown; we don't even know what happened to her, though most people assume that he had her executed. While this has invited sympathy and even feminist interpretations in modern times, the actual Jewish legends about Vashti paint her as a petty tyrant who forced her Jewish slaves to strip naked and work on the Sabbath. In some versions she refused to obey Ahasuerus' summons out of vanity, having been stricken by some sort of disfigurement as a divine punishment.
