* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', this trope is the origin of [[FutureBadass Dark Danny]]. After losing his parents, sister, best friend, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and teacher]], Danny (with former nemesis and new guardian Vlad's help) sought to remove his human half to get rid of the pain and grief that plagued him. Unfortunately, the process turned his ghost half into a remorseless sociopath, who killed his human half, tore out Vlad's ghost side and absorbed it, and went on a ten-year-long rampage.

* Scarlett O'Hara in ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'': "As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!"
* This has been used as Film/{{Spartacus}}' motivation in several fictionalisations.
* ''Film/{{Hitch}}'': Part of Hitch's backstory - in his younger days he loved and was very devoted to a woman who broke his heart by cheating on him with a cooler guy, with the reason that he was too average. In explaining it, he blatantly says he set out to ensure the same thing never happens to anyone else or himself - he reinvents himself to become the very pinnacle of charm, and then becomes the "Date Doctor" to give average guys real romantic chances that would otherwise never come their way.
* The Pigeon Lady in ''Film/HomeAlone2'' tells Kevin that she was hurt by a man who didn't love her back, so never let herself the possibility of having her heart broken again. That's why she was alone, [[spoiler: that, and the pigeon poop.]]
* Magneto from the ''Film/XMen'' films, is both a Holocaust Survivor and mutant "lab rat", which pushes him towards DoUntoOthersBeforeTheyDoUntoUs regarding mutant suppression by the humans.

* ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, when he's given sympathetic motivations. He's a Holocaust survivor who doesn't want mutants to face the kind of genocidal [[FantasticRacism bigotry]] he endured in his youth. Though it does kind of go against him when he has no qualms about doing that to humans.

** In the Cacophony storyline, this is Batman's justification for saving Joker's life at the end, in spite of Gordon's protests. He tells Joker that he became Batman so he could save people from dying, no matter what.
