* The village in ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', which is sacked in a cat-Cossack pogrom at the very beginning, in a ''FiddlerOnTheRoof'' parody. Surprisingly, this is intended to be [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shostka a real town]], which has in fact survived.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebSeries/{{RWBY}}'': This is a fairly common occurrence on [[DeathWorld Remnant]]. Since the Creatures of Grimm seem to exist just to wipe out humanity, villages and cities outside the Four Kingdoms (and inside them is by no means a guarantee of safety either) tend to be frequent targets, and you have the various [[BanditClan Bandit Clans]] that roam around out there. In the main cast, however, we have [[spoiler: Lie Ren]] whose home village of [[spoiler: Kuroyuri]] was destoryed by Grimm years ago.

* ''LookToTheWest:'' This happens so often, and so nonchalantly, during the background of various revolutionary leaders it is almost a running gag. ''Look To The Burning House Where Your Family Used To Live.'' It's also not only lampshaded in Part 71's title -- ''For Want Of A Burned House'' -- but played with. If that house in Part 71 had been burnt down like so many others, Pablo Sanchez would have died as a boy hiding in a cupboard and the world would have been spared a tremendous amount of misery.
