* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', Misato blamed the Angels for the Second Impact and her fatherís death. She joined NERV because destroying them made her feel better and took away some of the pain.

Usually eventually leads to NotSoDifferent. For a more specific form of this, see YouKilledMyFather. Often enough, ThisMeansWar. When done to his or her home or base, the hero will usually take a moment to [[WatchingTroyBurn Watch Troy Burn]]. If the one for whom It's Personal finally gets to stare down the one who made it personal, expect an AndThisIsFor beatdown.

* In ''Comicbook/SupermanRedSon,'' Lex Luthor was originally hired to kill Superman (here a champion of the Soviet Union) by the US Government and just saw it as another problem to solve with his genius intellect. But he decides to devote his entire life to the task shortly after Superman defeats a Bizarro duplicate he created. But he later reveals that wasn't the problem--the thing that drove him over the edge was that Bizarro managed to beat him at chess, implying that he, and by extension the original Superman, was more intelligent then Lex was.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** In the ''Comicbook/NewKrypton'' storyline, post-Crisis Supergirl has a feud with Reactron after he kills her father. It doesn't end well, and he eventually blows up her mother and almost every surviving member of her race. She also takes her enmity with Doomsday this way, knowing that he once killed her cousin.
** In the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc, Supergirl explains that she hates the Worldkillers (sentient, genetically-engineered biological weapons) and the Diasporan alien race because they kill planets, and she's an orphan of a dead world. She's ''very'' committed to stop them all.
--->'''Supergirl:''' How could anyone make it their mission in life to murder whole worlds? Can you imagine what an abomination that is to an orphan from a dead planet? [...] This world-killing stuff... it hits a nerve. It makes me furious, and the ring just fans the flame!

** It continued getting personal for Luke in the Franchise/StarWarsLegends universe when [[spoiler:the new Sith Lord, his own student and nephew, [[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce killed his wife]].]] Yeah, he had a bit of a problem with that.

** The original Green Goblin, ComicBook/NormanOsborn, started off trying to take control of the New York underworld, but by his second appearance, he was dedicated completely to killing Spider-Man. See quote for this trope. It's only been during the recent ''ComicBook/DarkReign'' crossover that he has begun to do other villainous things besides messing with Peter Parker.

** The first ComicBook/{{Venom}} was Eddie Brock who was also only after Spider-Man and not only had no aspirations for further villainy, but he was something of a SociopathicHero. Once he agreed to a truce with Spider-Man, he became an AntiHero.

** Subverted in ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs A's]]''. Chrono does request that he be put in charge of the Book of Darkness Case since it was responsible for his father's death, but he doesn't view it differently than any other dangerous Lost Logia and he never shows [[AntiVillain the Wolkenritter]] any personal animosity.

* Lampshaded in ''Fanfic/{{Infinity}}'' when Lindy fights [[spoiler: Precia]]. While she is arresting them for their crimes, it's more because [[MamaBear they hurt her children]].
-->'''Lindy:''' At this point, I suppose I should be telling you something appropriately neutral and law enforcement-esque. But I've already used 'you're under arrest', and frankly speaking I'm not neutral towards you at all.

* This was how the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Mecha-Streisand" came to be. In real-life, Music/BarbraStreisand insulted the people of Colorado when the state passed a law that prevented homosexuals from being considered a protected minority; native Coloradans Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone [[ThisMeansWar did not take it well]], and they decided to make an episode where they tried to make as many [[TakeThat cheap shots]] at her as they could.
