* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' has this in form of the Maximoff twins, Pietro and Wanda (otherwise known as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch from the ''ComicBooks/XMen''). They hate the Avengers because they're associated with Tony Stark, who made a shell that smashed into their apartment building, killing their parents and staring them right in the face for two days as they waited to see if it would explode as it also hampered efforts to rescue them. For some reason they blame ''Tony'' for this, instead of the people that fired the shell in the first place.

** In ''Dragon Ball GT'', Doctors Gero and Myuu plot to get revenge on Goku for their deaths...despite the fact that they ''both'' were killed by their own creations.



* In ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'', Shinzon directs his hatred of the Romulans towards Earth for reasons which only make sense to the screenwriter. It's never even explained what bizarre line of reasoning led to him wanting to destroy Earth and not, you know, Romulus. It's implied to be motivated by a particularly mean spirited variation of CloningBlues but it still doesn't make much sense.

*The Svenjaya contract in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. After the Svenjaya “Great Mistake,” whatever that was, the entire tribe had to pay by being sent into indentured servitude for 40 years. It's now been 30 years, and since the average lifespan of a Svenjaya is 30-40 years, several generations that had absolutely nothing to do with the Great Mistake have been growing up in virtual slavery. The four are disgusted by this and vow to help the Svenjaya change the contract.

* Goblins in ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'' will punish whoever kills one of their own severely, but are also not very good at linking cause and effect; when one is killed by a truck, they take their vengeance out on the truck instead of the driver. Jim trips Nomura over causing her to land on a goblin and kill it, and they take their vengeance out on her instead of him.
