* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has this happen when [[spoiler:the Dark World Mane Six finally confront Discord, who was mortally wounded by his sister Rancor and on his deathbed. Partially due to the mechanizations of [[BiggerBad Nightmare Paradox]], the others (sans Twilight, who's realized something is wrong) deliver a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to Discord. Apple Pie, however, merely walks up to him, gives him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, and walks away satisfied with that.]]

* ''VideoGame/Portal2'': [=GLaDOS=] seems to believe she's doing this for Chell, who killed her in the [[VideoGame/{{Portal| 1}} first game]]. Rather than killing Chell, [=GLaDOS=] simply makes Chell go back to testing.
** It's quickly subverted, however, as [=GLaDOS=] has lots of [[FateWorseThanDeath terrible things]] planned for Chell in the next 60 years.
** Since [=GLaDOS=] is out of humans, she [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou needs Chell for testing]], and [[spoiler: when she finds an alternative (the cooperative testing initiative) she immediately tries to kill Chell.]]

** Bart and Nelson also become friends in one episode, with the former merely using it as protection while the latter takes it ''very'' seriously. When the truth's revealed, Nelson spends a while glaring and apparently stalking Bart, and when he finally gets him alone and cornered, he seems poised to unleash the beating of Barts life but instead delivers a passionate TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, calls Bart a bad friend, and declares their friendship over.

** It should be noted that the futility of revenge is a recurring theme in Gargoyles. Several villains are hamstrung by their inability to let go of old grudges, and more than a few episodes have explicitly used this as an aesop. Vinnie is the only character in the series who sought revenge and got away with it, mostly because he decided to show mercy.

* In ''DanVs the Wolfman'', Dan hunts down the eponymous wolfman responsible for scratching his car. When Dan finally finds him, his retribution consists entirely of ''keying the wolfman's car'' - and Dan is appalled that Chris would suggest he actually ''kill'' the wolfman for being a dangerous threat to society. For the sake of context, note that Dan once destroyed ''Canada'' because he slipped on some maple syrup. DisproportionateRetribution is practically the man's middle name.
