* 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.
