* The KoihimeMusou anime has a cross-media version. It is a more light hearted rendition than the original VisualNovel although it hints that these are events that occur before the outbreak of war following the fall of the Han Dynasty. Plenty of lines in the show can trigger a PlayerPunch in the people who played the games since they know what is coming. Kayuu keeps saying that she will live a long life? [[spoiler: Nope! She dies in every scenario.]] Shuyuu and Sonsaku's loving relationship? [[spoiler: the latter will be murdered and the former will go mad, starting a civil war that almost undoes all that they have accomplished as lord and vassal.]]

Enter the Player Punch. The script gives our hero a {{sidekick}} or [[MoralityPet supporting character]] who is given a good degree of [[CharacterDevelopment characterization]] or is just plain adorable. Over time, the player begins to [[VideogameCaringPotential take a liking to them]] when suddenly BAM! The villain displays a startling KickTheDog moment in [[FriendlyTarget killing them off]] (usually in a non-resurrectable PlotlineDeath), or worse, forcing the ''player'' to kill them by kidnapping them and turning them into a TragicMonster. It isn't just [[ItsPersonal personal]] now for the character. The ''player'' has been drawn into the situation because they ''liked'' [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Skippy the Adorable Airedale]], and [[MoralEventHorizon now that villain is]] ''[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge going]]'' ''[[ItsPersonal down]]''. ''[[VideogameCrueltyPotential HARD.]]''

Alternatively, the developer can do this by forcing to the player to kill a sympathetic AntiVillain (usually [[SlidingScaleOfAntivilains a type 4]] such as a NobleTopEnforcer), which causing the player to question why did it have to end like this?

Alternatively, the developer can do this via a very sympathetic AntiVillain (usually a type 4 such as a NobleTopEnforcer) by forcing the player to kill them, causing the player to question why did it have to end like this?

In unusually cruel and dark cases the player is simply punched without there being a villain, or anybody else, to blame and take revenge on. Or even any other kind of positive resolution.

* When {{Lets Play}}er Nate From the Sunshine State gets to point in his playthrough of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' where Amanda Keyes is killed from behind by the Brutes, you can hear him loudly inhale in shock... and then he growls in authentic rage, "I don't care what I have to do, '''''I will exterminate your entire f*cking species! I swear to f*cking God!"''''' And for the rest of the LetsPlay, every Brute he kills gets a "F*ck you! That's for Amanda!" send-off.
** His reaction is Narmy for quite a few reasons. 1: Her name is ''Miranda'', not Amanda. 2: [[BigBad Truth]] is the one who shoots her in the back, not the Brutes. 3: ''He doesn't actually fight any Brutes from that point onwards'', just the [[ParasiteZombie Flood]] versions of some of them, which are already dead. So he's screaming at the wrong versions of the wrong people for the wrong person's death.
