* What cemented Peridot's HeelFaceTurn in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is realizing that Yellow Diamond, whom she's always revered as a Gem of logic and reason, is subject to this trope: she doesn't care how useful Earth and its resources can be, she just wants it destroyed out of revenge for all the trouble that planet and the Crystal Gems on it caused her. Cue the BrokenPedestal.

* In ''Literature/StarlightAndShadows'', the drow priestess Shakti's obsession with revenge against Liriel gets her temporarily banished to the Abyss. After watching her compatriot Gorlist's similar obsession likewise lead him to his demise, Shakti concludes that the drow's biggest weakness is their penchant for revenge before reason. [[spoiler:Therefore, she deliberately chooses to avert this in her final confrontation with Liriel, abandoning her chance for vengeance in order to succeed in obtaining the magic artifact she's been seeking]].

** In the ''TurtlesForever'' animated movie, the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 2003 Shredder]], after being beaten so many times by his Turtles and discovering TheMultiverse, decides to go to the source (the [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage Mirage comics universe]]) and destroy all reality. Karai even explicitly tells him that this would kill him as well, but he's so obsessed with his revenge that he ''just doesn't care''. This turns her against him permanently. Even the 1987 Shredder decides to put [[EvilVersusOblivion self-preservation above revenge]].

* The [[WordOfDante Yves Rodier]] finished version of ''{{Tintin}} and the Alph-Art'' has [[spoiler: Rastapapolous so willing to kill the titular character (who continuously screwed up his plans and operations) that his plan to do so would also inevitably lead to [[TakingYouWithMe killing himself in the process.]]]]

* Subverted in ''SinCity: Hell and Back''. When mob boss Wallenquist hears that one of his operations was completely shut down by an ex-soldier, his subordinates start making plans to track and kill the guy. Instead, Wallenquist points out that there's [[PragmaticVillainy no profit in revenge]] and no point in pursuing a fight with someone who's leaving town anyway. He knows what's in his own best interest.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' [[BadFuture Dark World Arc]], the possibility of falling victim to this trope is a constant threat while trying to stop Discord and free Equestria, in no small part thanks to [[EvilMentor the Nameless Passenger's]] constant encouragement to take this path. [[spoiler:As it turns out, the Passenger is [[GreaterScopeVillain Nightmare Eclipse]], Twilight's [[FutureMeScaresMe evil potential future self]] who is ''defined'' by this trope. In her timeline, she intentionally [[SuperpoweredEvilSide went Nightmare]] after managing to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong to take revenge on Discord...and became so addicted to her vengeance, she [[GroundhogDayLoop trapped Discord in a loop where he'd rule for a thousand years before being defeated and his daughter Fluttercruel killed before it resets]], [[RetGone destroying the universe and erasing everyone from that thousand years from existence.]] It got to the point that Discord's had a HeelRealization and she has to ''control'' him as her PuppetKing to be evil so she can take revenge on him, [[HeWhoFightsMonsters becoming even]] [[EvilerThanThou worse than him]].]] Thankfully, in the end [[spoiler:Eclipse meets her end]] and the heroes avoid this trope.
