** In Day 9, CIA Agent Kate Morgan ''weaponizes'' this trope [[spoiler: in order to get a confession on a stolen piece of property out of the man who also framed her husband, by bluffing him into thinking she's going to kill him.]]
* In the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E2HeavyIsTheHead "Heavy is the Head"]], Lance Hunter desperately wants revenge of Carl Creel, a supervillain responsible for the deaths of his friends. On a survillence mission, he betrays the rest of his team, [[StunGuns shooting them unconscious]], then goes out and confronts Creel alone. This ends with his nearly being killed, a third party stealing a powerful and dangerous artefact, and Agent May having a grudge against him. [[OneManArmy That last one is agreed to have been the worst part]].

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': Touka becomes fixated on avenging the deaths of Hinami's parents at the hands of [[RabidCop Kureo Mado]], rather than let the murder go and avoid attracting the CCG's attention as she should have done. Because of this, Touka is indirectly responsible for the CCG's raid on Anteiku, as her killing Mado caused them to turn their attentions ''to'' the 20th ward.

* ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'': After being defeated by Super Sonic and Super Armor Mega Man in the final issue of the crossover, Eggman is so pissed that he deliberately interferes with Super Sonic's attempt to undo the Super Genesis Wave, willing to let reality be destroyed rather than let Sonic restore it to normal. Said interference results in a CosmicRetcon on Sonic's world, as well as the subsequent [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Shattered World Crisis]]. Wily, however, is GenreSavvy enough to avert this and KnowWhenToFoldEm.

** ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'': This is this Shredder's defining trait; he's so obsessed with getting revenge on Splinter (primarily for things that [[NeverMyFault were Shredder's own fault in the first place]]) that ''nothing else'' matters to him at all. Splinter calls him out on this during the first season finale, [[AndThenWhat pointing out that when Splinter dies, Shredder will have nothing]]. [[spoiler:In the third season finale, during an EnemyMine scenario to stop the entire Earth from being destroyed, Shredder literally stabs Splinter in the back at a crucial moment, killing him and dooming the planet. He then goes on to say that he doesn't even care if Earth gets destroyed anymore, [[WorthIt he can die happy now that he's finally gotten his revenge]].]]

* Dalton Castle teamed with the World Six Man TagTeam Champions during the ''[[Wrestling/RingOfHonor War Of The Worlds]]'' against Wrestling/LosIngobernablesDeJapon. The match was going pretty well for the champions but not for Castle, leading to The Boys [[PersonalMook who wait on him]] to pull Castle out of harms way when EVIL tried to hit him with [[SuperSpit poison fog]], resulting in Jay Briscoe getting misted and the champion team being defeated. Jay was more angry with The Boys for their incompetence than EVIL for his maliciousness, to the point he had to be restrained by Mark and [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys Bully Ray]], and ended up giving Dalton and The Boys their requested title shot at ''Best In The World'' just to get his hands on them. The champions would lose their belts when Ray and Jay's brother Mark again became disturbed at just how intent Jay was on hurting The Boys.

** Cersei tends to focus on harming her real or imaginary enemies, and think about the consequences... uh, sometime later. Maybe. A shining example is her ploy to undermine the Tyrells in Season 5. Not only does Cersei's claim to power rely on the Lannister-Tyrell alliance (meaning that, if the Tyrells are undermined, ''she'' is undermined), Cersei's scheme directly results in her own imprisonment, public humiliation, and complete loss of political power and control. Most halfway intelligent people would realize they've lost and do their best to mitigate the damage and avoid future misery. Cersei is not one of these people, and actually proceeds to she tops herself in Season 6's finale when she blows up the Sept of Baelor during the Green Trial, destroying all of her opponents in Kings Landing, along with a good part of the city. It's one of the very few plans she actually executes successfully, but it leaves her as ''the'' target of pretty much every remaining faction in Westeros. Of course, by that time her sanity is so long gone it's hard to even speak of "reason". And this time she may have been genuinely more interested in just making her enemies suffer than in gaining anything for herself. Another perfect example is also her willingness to have Sansa dead because she suspects that the latter poisoned Joffrey (she didn't). But she does not take it into a consideration one bit that Joffrey caused so many misfortunes to Sansa including the execution of her father as well wanting to give her the head of her brother.

** This is the basis for his entire plan after being resurrected in ''Resurrection 'F'''. He could have simply rebuilt his empire in space with the Z Fighters none the wiser, but he instead goes through TrainingFromHell to unlock a new SuperMode before launching a full-scale invasion of Earth, all to get revenge on Goku for his previous defeat. It's to the extent that when one of his minions begs him to just leave Goku alone and focus on rebuilding his empire, Frieza kills him on the spot. [[spoiler:This ends up being his undoing: Freeza rushed to Earth to get revenge as soon as he achieved his new SuperMode, not realizing its massive FatalFlaw (it burns through his stamina at an incredible rate). Even though he was technically more powerful than Goku or Vegeta (AND actually manages to mortally wound Goku), he can't seal the deal before he runs out of stamina and drops back to a weaker form, leaving him easy pickings for Vegeta.]]
