In some situations, it makes sense to let the opponent know that if they so much as sneeze on [[MamaBear someone]] [[PapaWolf you]] {{protect|orate}}, it will cost them a limb. If you have tried an eye for an eye and it really didn't do anything except help sell eyepatches, the only way to stay alive is to be drastic. Pay back any offense tenfold, or even a hundredfold if necessary, until the survivors learn to stay away. [[TruthInTelevision It's a common tactic of militaries the world over]].

Contrast with {{Unishment}} and RestrainedRevenge. Expect the character dishing this out to [[RationalizingTheOverkill justify this no matter what anyone speaks against it.]] If a character inverts this trope, and offers wholehearted forgiveness for an unimaginable list of wrongs, it's InsaneForgiveness.

Compare MakeAnExampleOfThem, RevengeByProxy, RevengeSVP, ShopliftAndDie, IrrationalHatred, CycleOfRevenge, BerserkButton, DieForOurShip and RonTheDeathEater (both when fans demand/imagine disproportionate retribution for fictional characters). If the retribution is played for laughs, compare ComedicSociopathy.
