* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, MutekiKanbanMusume justifies LawOfDisproportionateResponse because the core cast is a bunch of [[SchoolYardBullyAllGrownUp Schoolyard Bullies All Grown Up]].

* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' - Dream of the Endless cast Nada into Hell because she didn't want to get into a MayflyDecemberRomance. There are undoubtedly other examples within the series, but that is the one that stands out the most. To be fair, he did let her out... ''after several thousand years, and being bugged about it by various people the whole time''.
* In some versions of {{Superman}}, ComicBook/LexLuthor hates Superman so much because Superman accidentally caused Lex's baldness. Other versions have him being hated just because he ''exists''.

* This happens to ''ComicBook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'' ''constantly''. He's pretty wacky. Johnny: [[RantInducingSlight WACKY!!? What the hell kind of word is that!!? I HATE that word!! Fewer words are so excruciatingly stupid!! And used in description of ME!!!]] [[UnusualEuphemism Fook!]]
** This is someone who considers being talked to by a dead bunny to be perfectly normal, and who doesn't bat an eyelash upon meeting God or the devil.

He ''hates'' being called "wacky". This is someone who considers being talked to by a dead bunny to be perfectly normal, and who doesn't bat an eyelash upon meeting God or the devil.

* In ''WesternAnimation/KimPossibleMovieSoTheDrama'', after losing his want-to-be girlfriend to a RomanticFalseLead, and having his favorite restaurant turned into a kiddie joint by a new owner, Ron finally goes insane (well, for a second time) after they replace the bendy straws with regular ones, though that was probably just [[RageBreakingPoint the straw that broke the camel's back]] ([[IncrediblyLamePun no pun intended]]).
* In ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', Yzma gives Kronk a long TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. He's, at most, mildly upset. She insults his spinach puffs. Kronk does a HeelFaceTurn and ''drops a chandelier on her''. Which gets HarsherInHindsight when we find out in the sequel that Kronk's dad had found him a disappointment for wanting to be a chef.

* In one episode of KevinSpencer, Anastasia screams at her husband to answer the phone (which is ''right next to her.'') When she doesn't get a response (he wasn't even in the same province at the time. He just didn't tell her he left), she proceeds to destroy everything Percy would hold dear, culminating with the destruction of the house.

** In a mini-video filmed for [=MuchMusic=], Al recites ''Literature/GreenEggsAndHam'' to the tune of {{U2}}'s "Numb" while undergoing the same randomness that the Edge underwent in the original video. He doesn't complain until the moment "Bono" starts singing.

* CyranoDeBergerac: This play deconstructs this law showing us the [[{{Jerkass}} kind of person]] who uses DisproportionateRetribution (like Cyrano, De Guiche and all the Gasconís Cadets except Le Bret) and the [[SeriousBusiness kind of]] [[FanDumb personality that uses]] DisproportionateReward (like Cyrano and Roxane) and the consequences of this trope in RealLife. For the audience, the same thing that are very funny [[{{Deconstruction}} are very serious for the characters in the play]].
