* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' notes that "revenge is a sucker's game" and never accomplishes anything except [[CycleOfRevenge spreading the need for revenge]]. Oddly, the only character who has a firm grasp of this in the beginning is the AffablyEvil BigBad David Xanatos, which is why [[XanatosSpeedChess he wins so often.]]

Revenge, in some instances, can be a form of [[PayEvilUntoEvil Paying Evil Unto Evil]]. [[KickTheDog Someone has done]] [[MoralEventHorizon something seriously bad]] to [[ItsPersonal another person or someone that person loves]], and for some reason, there's no justice to be had for the crime, so the character sets out to exact their own kind of justice upon the person or people responsible. Although, [[ItsAllAboutMe some characters]] may not care for justice or "getting even", but want the satisfaction that comes only from DisproportionateRetribution. This can be compounded when the harm is [[RantInducingSlight slight]], like [[RevengeSVP not getting invited to a party]]. Avenging a death may be regarded as DueToTheDead -- and the [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost may agree]].

* ''Anime/DuelMasters'': Benny Haha/Gyujiro Japan was originally part of White Soldiers, Hakuoh's personal guards during his time as the Duel Masters Champion. However, Benny was known as the worst human being in existence and had the habit of [[DirtyCoward cheating in the worst fashion possible.]] He initially joined the white guardians in hopes of usurping Hakuoh as the number one duelist, but ultimately fails thanks to Shobu and his friends' intervention to the point of being presumably banned from official matches. Since then, Benny Haha was driven mad with vengeance and made it his life work at getting revenge against Shobu, his friends and everything Duel Masters. Even Shobu's apparent death didn't stop him at pursuing his revenge against Shobu, which is why he targeted his little brother Katta because of it. This also fuels his insanity as he will do whatever I takes t that end, even if it means getting his hands on [[ArtifactofDoom an extremely dangerous card]]

* In ''XenobladeChronicles'', following the Mechon attack on Colony 9 and the death of [[spoiler:Shulk's friend Fiora]], Shulk declares his intent to destroy ''every last Mechon'' in revenge for what has happened. A shocking goal for someone as kind as Shulk. [[spoiler:This becomes important later on]].

* ''Film/TheSting'': Hooker's main motivation in conning Lonnegan is revenge for the murder of his friend, Luther. Despite Gondorff's claim that revenge is for suckers, it appears that it's at least part of the motivation for many of the grifters. Revenge and the money, at least. It's acknowledged early by Gondorff and at the end by Hooker that it's not enough, but it's close.

** In a case of two revenges for the price of one, there's the original motivation of Venom. Disgraced reporter Eddie Brock hated Spider-Man because he'd caught the real Sin Eater serial killer after Brock had published an exclusive article with the confession of a fake. The alien symbiote wanted revenge because Spider-Man had rejected it.
