* Literature/TheShahnameh: Rostam has gone to war against the Turanians on many occasions, simply as a patriotic Persian defending his country. But when the Turanians kill the innocent Siavash (Rostam's surrogate son) he goes to war for the sole purpose of killing everyone responsible. Same can be said about king Key Khosro who was Siavash's son and the Persians in general.

** Slade Wilson desires to destroy Starling City and kill all of Oliver's loved ones in retaliation for Oliver's role in Shado's death, who Slade loved -- not helping the situation was the Mirakuru injected into him, which caused him hallucinate and see images of Shado telling him to do all these terrible things. Oliver, meanwhile, despises him for his attempts to do so, including [[spoiler:Slade successfully killing his mother]]. That being said, Oliver still spared him after Season 2 -- he recognizes that Slade turning out the way he did was partially his fault, and let him live out of respect for their past friendship.

** Prometheus. Like Slade, he hates Oliver [[spoiler:for the death of someone he loved (in this case, Prometheus' father, a corrupt Pharmaceutical Executive whose name was on The List)]] and wants to destroy his life. ''Unlike'' Slade he doesn't have the excuse of Mirakuru-induced insanity -- he just hates Oliver that much. The long list of things he's done to screw Ollie over include: terrorizing the city as a serial killer murdering innocent people [[spoiled:whose names are anagrams of those on The List, manipulating Oliver into killing Billy Malone, Felicity's boyfriend, breaking out Black Siren and having her impersonate the deceased Earth-1 Laurel, Oliver's FirstLove, and then arranging things so Oliver's alter-ego is public enemy #1. In the meanwhile, under the guise of FalseFriend DA Adrian Chase, he butters Oliver up to gain his trust, aiding him in his administration several times and even helping Diggle get out of military prison]]. Once Oliver learns his identity, he is ''not'' happy, and after TheReveal, the two don't even try hiding how much they've come to hate each other.

** The only BigBad Oliver didn't come to personally hate was Ra's al Ghul, mainly because it was Malcolm's fault they were at odds at all. In the finale, when an opportunity to make Ra's back off entirely with little bloodshed involved for both sides presented itself, Oliver didn't hesitate to take it, and the only reason he killed Ra's was because he didn't have any other choice. Seasons afterwards, Olived still regards him with some respect, recognizing that for all his faults he was an honorable man to the end.

** Zeref's desire to die is so great that he deliberately tries to invoke this with protagonist Natsu Dragneel, [[spoiler:who, as both his younger brother and the demon E.N.D., is the only being capable of killing him]].
* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'': [[ArchEnemy Shizuo Heiwajima and Izaya Orihara]] [[HateAtFirstSight hated each other the moment they first met]] -- Shizuo was able to tell [[{{Jerkass}} what]] [[{{Troll}} kind of]] [[ManipulativeBastard person]] Izaya was while Izaya hated the fact that Shizuo's TooDumbToFool status and aggression made him unable to manipulate him, and therefore a potential SpannerInTheWorks for his plans. The intervening years of numerous [[NoodleIncident Noodle Incidents]] is what made that hatred ''personal''. By the time the series starts, Shizuo's flies into a homicidal rage just by seeing him, while Izaya, [[LoveYouAndEverybody who espouses that he loves all humans]], admits that Shizuo is the one person in the world he actually hates and goes to great lengths to kill him, including harming those close to Shizuo.

* Vent and Aile of ''MegaManZX'' lost their mother to a Maverick raid on Area H ten years ago, and the lack of intervention on Slither Inc's part gave them a reason to hate the company. The truth behind it gives them a reason to search for Model W[[spoiler:...and that's to destroy it.]]
** While we are on the subject of Mega Man, this is why Omega-Xis steals the Andromeda Key in the first ''MegaManStarForce'' game. His reason behind stealing the item is so that King Cepheus can't use it to [[EarthShatteringKaboom blow up anymore planets]], like he did to Omega-Xis's home planet.

The invocation of this trope in RealLife on the internet is almost ''the'' moment when any given FlameWar or bout of ShipToShipCombat becomes SeriousBusiness, leading to behaviors such as cyberbullying and real-life harassment, because belief/feeling that an issue is a personal affront to someone or their "in-group" is often "justification" for engaging in such behavior. In other words, ThisMeansWar.
