* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', after Barry defeats Tony Woodward/Girder, [[SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp his old tormentor back in school]], he locks him up in the particle accelerator and gives him a good TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Once he's out of sight, Barry pumps his fists in thriumph.
-->'''Cisco''': Duuuude, that had to feel great!
-->'''Barry''': You have ''no'' idea.

*** [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 The third game]] adds some more (again, depending on player choices). The quarians and the geth can finally end their war. Mordin has the opportunity to deal with the guilt he's felt due to his involvement with the krogan genophage. Miranda finally confronts her father and ensures he won't get his hands on her sister. Shepard gets satisfying vengeance on Kai Long, and at the end [[spoiler: willingly sacrifice his/her life knowing that doing so will end the war that's left them psychologically broken]].

** The majority of the loyalty missions in the game revolve around this (depending on player choices): Kasumi finally deals with the loss of her former partner and lover and can move on. Garrus finds some peace after the betrayal and death of his team. Grunt finally finds a place to belong after questioning his existence. Samara ends the centuries-long hunt for Morinth. Zaeed gets revenge on the man who stole everything from him. Tali moves past the loss of her father (and/or possible exile) knowing that Shepard will be there for her.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': [[BreakTheCutie Jack]] is '''not''' what you would call a well adjusted individual, owing in no small part to the [[PlayingWithSyringes horrific experiments]] performed on her. Her LoyaltyMission has you guiding her through the abandoned facility where these experiments were performed and dealing with some of the remnants of her past, before setting a BigBulkyBomb in her old cell and blowing the lab to smithereens. Afterwards, she becomes... well, slightly less AxCrazy. The achievement you get for completing the mission is even called "Catharsis."
** Also, after taking down the Shadow Broker and saving Feron, Liara is much more like the person she was in the first game.

* ''Music/TheWall'': When Pink trashes his hotel room, it's probably the first time he's genuinely expressed or even [[TheStoic felt]] an emotion after years of stuffing it all down.

* It's something of a running gag in ''Webcomic/LsEmpire'' that characters find inflicting pain on Geminiman to be cathartic. The AltText suggests that it might be the paint that he uses on his armor.
