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 performs the opposite of this trope, and offers wholehearted forgiveness for an unimaginable list of wrongs, it's InsaneForgiveness. Expect someone (doesn't needs be the OnlySaneMan) to be DisappointedByTheMotive if the retribution is just ''that'' absurdly disproportional to the reason.

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]], with some regimes (such as UsefulNotes/NaziGermany) being infamous for it.
