* In AThinVeneer, the OddNameOut among the Gorn ships is the ''GCF Fires of Regulus'', named after the incident that brought the [[StarTrek Federation, Klingons and Gorn]] into the [[BabylonFive Earth-Minbari War]].

* A variant of this is used by the [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic Terra Firma protesters]] in the first ''Franchise/MassEffect'' game, who, at their annual protest, shout "Remember Shanxi!" - Shanxi being the human colony that was almost destroyed by the [[ProudWarriorRace turians]] during the First Contact War. Trying to incite aggression towards the turians in this way is in line with their policy of ceasing or at least reducing cooperative relations with the [[TheFederation Council races]].

* The name of the Sons of Korhal resistance group in ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' recalls a planet [[ApocalypseHow nuked from orbit]] by the Confederacy they fight again.

(To the point that one of his allies snidely asks if that's "[[HeWhoFightsMonsters a target number]]". [[FalseReassurance It isn't]] -- [[KillEmAll Mengsk has his sights set way higher]].)

* A particularly grim example during the Indian Mutiny of 1857 was the battle cry of "Remember Cawnpore". The [[KiplingsFinest British East India Company garrison]] at Cawnpore (now Kanpur) under General Wheeler surrendered to Indian rebels under Nana Sahib on the explicit promise that they would be granted safe passage to Allahabad. Sahib promptly reneged on this promise and massacred virtually all of the British force as they tried to leave the city. More horrific, however, was the subsequent massacre of [[KillEmAll several hundred women and children]] at the Bibighar in Cawnpore; when rebel Sepoy troops protested at being ordered to kill women and children, Sahib's advisors simply hired local butchers to finish the job with cleavers and dump the corpses in a well. The massacre outraged many Indians who would otherwise have supported Sahib (it's said the women of his household went on hunger strike in protest), and provoked a series of [[RoaringRampageofRevenge extremely brutal]] [[DisproportionateRetribution reprisals]] from the British.

ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway (well, actually Texas in 1836) roughly two hundred colonialists stood their ground against an entire army (the mexican one, that is) and did so for almost two straight weeks. William Travis, James Bowie, and [[Film/TheAlamo Billy Bob Thorton]][[note]] (actually, UsefulNotes/DavyCrockett)[[/note]] were the three men who orchestrated their defense against the ensuing onslaught of Santa Anna and his men, and since then The Alamo has been a nationally revered moment of American bravery for the entire country, but mostly [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]].
