* In ''Anime/MaiHime'', Nao, who has [[FaceHeelTurn turned fully antagonistic]] after [[spoiler:losing one of her eyes]] in a fight with Natsuki (which, unbeknownst to either, was the result of manipulation by [[spoiler:Nao's alleged victim Yukariko]]), decides to seek revenge on everyone whom she blames for this. This, unfortunately, includes Mai, who tried to stop the fight between Nao and Natsuki, and Natsuki decides to take revenge on Mai by [[spoiler:[[RevengeByProxy targeting Takumi]] instead]]. To a degree, this can also apply to Shiho's grudge against Mai (for which she [[spoiler:kills Takumi by destroying Akira's Child]]), since it was Yuuichi's declaration of love for Mai that showed her that he was attracted to her, rather than anything Mai did, although it also falls under MurderTheHypotenuse in that Shiho wants Mai out of the way as long as she is a potential rival.

* How could we forget the Porygon seizure incident in Anime/{{Pokemon}}? The real culprit was Pikachu, but Porygon and its evolutions were banned from ever appearing in the anime again.

** This was the theme of the cartoon "Pest of a Guest". Every time bellhop Daffy disrupts the rest of a disgruntled hotel guest, he punches the manager Elmer Fudd in the nose. At the end of the cartoon, when Daffy works the guest up into his greatest rage, Elmer promotes Daffy to manager while taking over as bellhop. The guest ''still'' punches him in the nose.

Closely related to MisBlamed, a SisterTrope to RevengeByProxy, and similar to GuiltByAssociationGag and KarmicMisfire. IllPunishYourFriendsForYourFailure is when one invokes this trope. It's one of the many ways in which a CycleOfRevenge can get ugly. AvengingTheVillain is also related, since TheHero (or whoever killed the villain) is usually either [[SelfDisposingVillain blameless or justified]]. Yet another related trope is BewilderingPunishment, which is what this trope probably feels like from the victim's POV. TheChainOfHarm can result if the victim goes on to inflict this on somebody else.

** 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), he blames his misfortune on the ''radio'', steals it, and smashes it up. 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 the ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Lawnmower Dog", Jerry demands that Rick find a way to [[AmplifiedAnimalAptitude make the family dog smarter]], but since he can't do anything to punish Rick directly he claims that he'll [[YouAreGrounded ground]] Morty instead because Rick needs Morty's help with his experiments and adventures. Fortunately for Morty, Rick already had a device for just such an occasion.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Lawnmower Dog", Jerry threatens Rick that he'll [[YouAreGrounded ground]] Morty if Rick doesn't find a way to [[AmplifiedAnimalAptitude make the family dog smarter]] (slightly justified as Rick needs Morty's help with his experiments). Fortunately for Morty, Rick quickly produces an invention to do exactly that.
