* ''Anime/Duel Masters'': 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]]
* ''Anime/Metal Fight Beyblade'': Argo Garcia is the perfect embodiment of vengeance in the world of Beyblade. Having grown up on the slums of Brazil along with his younger siblings, Argo eventually give in to greed and saw Beyblade as a tool to satisfy his own greed. He also has a vindictive side that he picked up during his fight with many Beyblade gangs in Brazil and would use [[DirtyCoward every dirty trick in the book to get wants what he wants.]] Since his loss at the hands of Tsubasa, Argo became mad with vengeance and would take extreme measures to get his revenge, even if it means selling his soul to the likes of Ziggurat and Doji.

* ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}} 15: Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom'': The plot is tangentially based on a Chinese folktale, where the god Houyi used his bow to shoot down the nine suns threatening to scorch the earth (here, one of the falling suns killed the BigBad Junko's son). She is invading the Moon to kill his wife Chang'e (despite the Lunarians having imprisoned her for different reasons). The BonusBoss Hecatia Lapislazuli is also out for revenge, as the shadows of Hell become weaker with only one sun.

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': 250-ish years before series 3, Angelus and Darla had not only killed [[TheHunter Holtz's]] wife and three children but turned his [[KickTheDog youngest daughter]] into a vampire just to leave him a message, [[OffingtheOffspring forcing him to kill her himself]]. [[CrusadingWidower Holtz]] initially went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, taking out 378 vampires in 9 years as he [[ItsPersonal relentlessly]] [[TheHunterBecomesTheHunted hunted the pair]] across the whole of Europe. At times, he'd actually catch Angelus but never Darla and [[ColdBloodedTorture engage in torture]] just to see what would be left if he beat the demon out of the man. Angelus always escaped and the hunt would continue. Eventually, a demon told Holtz that if he didn't agree to travel 200+ years into the future he'd lose his chance to destroy Angelus and Darla forever. Holtz [[RevengeBeforeReason agreed]] in return for the promise that he'd show no mercy. When Holtz realised Angel [[TheAtoner now had a soul]] and Darla had [[ThePowerOfLove killed herself]] to save her son, his [[TheChessmaster plans]] [[BestServedCold changed]] to do to Angel what Angelus had done to him - [[RevengeByProxy take away the family he loved]]. He [[TheChainOfHarm stole Connor]], [[ConditionedToAcceptHorror raised him in a Hell dimension]] before sending him back to Angel [[RelativeButton full of hate]] and [[RevengeThroughCorruption groomed to kill his own father]], having [[ThePowerOfHate set up his own death]] to [[MoralMyopia make it look like]] Angel had killed him [[MoralEventHorizon just to make sure]] Connor would kill Angel in a [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Adopted Father]] fury. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Holtz]] was [[YouAreWhatYouHate supposed to be]] a ''good guy''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' gives us [[spoiler:Goro Akechi, a person conceived as a result of an illicit affair by corrupt politician and major villain Masayoshi Shido. As a result of the resulting shame and social stigmatization he suffered, Akechi vows to exact revenge on the man who abandoned him and left him to his miserable fate. In his quest for vengeance, Akechi ends up relentlessly abusing his ability to manipulate the Metaverse in order to do Shido's dirty work, all so that he can pull the rug from underneath him when Shido succeeds in his ambition of being elected Prime Minister. As a result, this puts him in conflict with the game's Phantom Thieves, who are also driven by avenging the wrongs done to them and righting societal wrongs, but haven't crossed anywhere near the lines Akechi has.]]

* [[Creator/BioWare From the same family]], [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Carth Onasi]] wants to pound his treasonous ex-commander into paste for betraying the Republic and bombing Telos. [[VideoGame/JadeEmpire Sky]] wanted to kick Gao the Greater into orbit over the death of his little girl at the hands of Gao's slavers. Even though [[spoiler: you kill Gao before he does]], Sky's pretty understanding about it, and just extends his vendetta to anyone dealing in slaves.
