* In the ''Film/KingArthurLegendOfTheSword'' Vortigern taunts Arthur by noting that Arthur is bright, motivated and driven in spite of having been raised in the worst of environments after Vortigern murdered Arthur's parents. He wonders how much more Arthur would have achieved if he'd been raised by his actual parents as the rightful heir to the throne rather than as a bastard child in a brothel. He asks "What gave you such drive?" Later during their final battle Arthur tells him "You want to know what motivate me? You did. You put me in that brothel. You cut me on the streets. You created me."

* In ''Series/{{Rome}}'', Titus Pullo is sentenced to die in the arena, but refuses to anything and just sits there dejectedly, waiting for the gladiators to kill him. This flummoxes the gladiators, who seem at a loss at what to do... until one of them starts {{Trash Talk}}ing the legion Pullo served with, most of whom died earlier in the season. ''Bad move''. Pullo goes on an epic rampage and kills all but one of the gladiators there. Finally, when Pullo is too wounded and exhausted to resist or even stand, the last gladiator goes to finish him off, only for [[VitriolicBestBuds Pullo's friend and fellow legionnaire Vorenus]] to jump out of the stands [[BigDamnHeroes and save him]].

* One of the relatively rare cases of a hero doing this to a villain shows up in Season 3 of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. The Mayor, the ArcVillain of that season, has basically adopted Buffy's EvilCounterpart Faith as a daughter, and shows true affection for her. Buffy has to fight with Faith and puts her into a coma during the course of the season. After the Mayor has turned himself into [[ScaledUp a giant snake demon]] in the season finale, Buffy taunts him about what she did to Faith in order to get him to chase her directly into a trap set by the good guys.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Harming [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow's]] brothers or sisters is a ''very bad idea'', as [[spoiler:Ramsay Snow]] learned the hard way. In Season Six, [[spoiler:[[{{Sadist}} Ramsay Bolton]]]] hits this button with Jon for what he has done to Jon's [[spoiler: younger brother and sister]]. [[spoiler:When Jon finally gets his hands on [[BastardBastard Ramsay]], [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown he beats Ramsay within an inch of his life]] for raping and torturing his sister Sansa and murdering his younger brother Rickon, leaving just enough left for Sansa to hand Ramsay an extremely KarmicDeath as she feeds him to his own starving dogs. Ramsay's actions against Jon's brother and sister [[BigBrotherInstinct are also the reason why Jon went to war against Ramsay in the first place]] -- so Jon could rescue Rickon, who Ramsay held captive at the time, and to protect Sansa from that BastardBastard.]] Furthermore, he nearly attacked Alliser Thorne for bad-mouthing his father Ned and brother Robb. He almost quit the Nightís Watch to avenge his fatherís death. Qhorin Halfhand also provoked Jon into seriously fighting back (as part of his plan to help Jon infiltrate the Wildlings by having Jon kill him) by calling Ned a traitor and Jon's unknown mother a whore.
