** In another cartoon entitled "Fox Pop", a fox overhears a radio broadcast talking about how foxes are popular and in season. Believing that foxes are getting a royal treatment, he gets himself taken into a fox farm (after disguising himself as a silver fox), only to find that he was going to be turned into a fur coat. After going through hell and escaping with his life (following a beating from a pack of hunting dogs), [[NeverMyFault he blames his misfortune]] on the ''[[InsaneTrollLogic radio]]'', steals it, and smashes it up which is less scary than usual since its just a radio. After telling his story to a pair of hawks (the premise of the episode being in a [[HowWeGotHere flashback]] FramingDevice), they join him in smashing it.

* In one episode of ''Series/GreenAcres'', a flashback showed that Oliver used to have a garden outside his penthouse apartment. His mother, not approving of it, shoved the plants off the balcony...just as a police officer was walking past the building, the plants nearly falling on him. Somehow, Oliver and Lisa are the ones who end up going to jail.

** Prodigy's parents claimed that he suffered birth defects because of the Hulk. Prodigy became a Leader-like Gamma mutant and joined the Gamma Squad for payback. He later discovered that his parents blamed the Hulk to hide the ''real'' reason for his birth defects- their heroin addiction.

* A rare humorous example appears above, from the ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' adventure, ''Asterix and the Roman Agent.'' Fulliautomatix, having just been bashed in the foot by village elder Geriatrix ([[DisproportionateRetribution for laughing at him]]), whips around and punches innocent bystander Cacophonix in the face.
-->'''Cacophonix''' But I didn't say a word!
-->'''Fulliautomatix''' I know, but all the same, I can't bring myself to bash that old relic!

* In ''Manga/LoveHina'', Kanako's plan of driving away everyone who made hell of Keitaro's life also includes [[ShrinkingViolet Shinobu]], who throughout the series until that point was the only person to treat him fairly from the get-go and never did anything like {{Megaton Punch}}ing him into the sky, publicly embarrassing him, trying to bisect him for being at the wrong place at the wrong time, making him an unwilling test subject for dangerous machines, and so on and so forth. She ends up being the first to get run out of the Inn, however.
