* [[DeconstructedTrope Desconstructed]] in the ''Creator/SophieHannah'' novel The Carrier, concerning a mystery about why Tim Breary confesses the murdering his wife Francine, but claims he doesn't know why he did it. [[spoiler: It turns out that it was actually Francine's caretaker, Lauren, who decided to [[MercyKill put Francine out of her misery]] because Tim and his two best friends, Kerry and Dan, were endlessly abusing Francine, who had a stroke and was bedridden, unable to move or speak and justified it to themselves because of Francine's former DomesticAbuse towards Tim that [[DrivenToSuicide culminated in Tim trying to kill himself]]. When Gabrielle, the story's protagonist and Tim's former LoveInterest, discovers this, she realises Tim takes the fall for Lauren because he realises that he was basically torturing a victim who could not fight back and, regardless of her treatment of him, realises that he had no way of verifying Francine was the same person after having her stroke and that he'd become no better than his former abuser and thus, unworthy of Gabby's love.]]

De Grandin ends up trying to arrest him alongside a local cop, but he [[ExactWords "fell down the stairs and broke his neck."]] [[CowboyCop The officer adds "He had to do it twice, the first time wasn't enough."]]

* There is Reynard The Fox of the Beast Fables when he's not an out and out SociopathicHero; often times he pays for slights against him with brutal retaliation, abject humiliation, and preferably both at once. In one story, King Leo had three creatures try to catch him for crimes; Tybalt the Cat ends up getting half-strangled to death and one eye popped out by a priest and he's put down as a whiner for the rest of the story.

** Full circle example in in "Scott Tenorman Must Die" in which Cartman is bullied mercilessly by Eight Grader Scott Tenorman, leading him to take revenge to a very macabre level. To put it lightly, Cartman tricked Scott into eating his parents in the form of a bowl of chili. All because Cartman just wanted his $16.12.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Bismuth", Steven accidentally releases Bismuth, a Gem who was kept bubbled in the pocket dimension in Lion's mane. Bismuth seems friendly, and as the Crystal Gems' UltimateBlacksmith provides a few upgrades to the team's equipment. But then Steven learns why Bismuth was bubbled in the first place: [[spoiler: [[WellIntentionedExtremist Bismuth]] wanted to use her new secret weapon, the Breaking Point, to shatter the Diamond Authority and anyone loyal to them. Since shattering is a FateWorseThanDeath to Gems, Rose Quartz was against it, and the two came to blows. When [[AllLovingHero Steven]] is naturally against the Breaking Point as well, Bismuth [[WithUsOrAgainstUs snaps and attacks him]].]]

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'': ''Reconstruction'' Agent South Dakota killed her brother North Dakota, and left Agent Washington for dead just to save her own skin. She was finally cornered by Washington (after Caboose shot her) who shots her in the head, and deposes her body by burning it, burying it, and [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill blowing it up]].

* Pretty much the standard response for Chuck a.k.a. WebComic/WeaponBrown. Among his more notable accomplishments is tearing off the cybernetic limbs off his old tormentor Croc, brutally beating and torturing him for a bit, before [[UpToEleven shoving him assfirst onto a flamethrower, and firing it]], and cutting out Lucy's tongue, and watch her try to beg for mercy without it.

* ''Series/TwentyFour'': If they're someone who's royally pissed him off or killed somebody close to him and there's no longer any need to keep them alive, Jack Bauer has absolutely no problem taking vengeance into his own hands. One particularly stand-out moment occurs in the final season where he's torturing the man who earlier killed [[spoiler:Renee Walker]], and the bastard refuses to break, even bragging how he murdered [[spoiler:Renee]]. When Jack learns that the guy swallowed something that has some potentially crucial information he could use on it, Jack proceeds to ''cut the guy's stomach open and empty it to obtain what he swallowed.'' Even though what Jack's doing [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope is]] [[MoralEventHorizon horrible]], for a total prick like this one can't help but at least smirk a little.
