* In ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', a suspect poisons his new bride to get revenge on her policeman father, who'd neglected to notice that, while chasing a perp, he had run into his mother and failed to notice her lying there (and she then bleeds to death later). Subverted in that [[spoiler:the bride found out that the suspect was the childhood friend she had a crush on and guessed that he'd attempt something like this]].

Sometimes the villain feigns this in order to lure the hero to within striking distance. If the villain is feeling particularly sadistic, they won't just torture and kill someone the hero cares about; [[ForcedToWatch they'll make the hero watch]].

* The Greek Gods are kinda big on this trope in general: when Hades learns how Zeus tried to kill his son Harry by crashing the plane he was on in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8182529/1/Prince-of-Death Prince of Death]]'', he immediately unleashes the Furies against Thalia as retaliation and succeeds to destroy her... more or less.

** The best known example is probably sending two serpents to kill Zeus's half-human baby son, Heracles. [[LateArrivalSpoiler The baby won]]. Hera continued to torment him, eventually driving him temporarily insane and making him slaughter his wife Megara and their children. His famous Twelve Labors were expiation for this blood-guilt.

** The villain, [[spoiler:Henry Grace]], of "Masterpiece" blamed Rossi for ruining his life and for the loss of his family (as Rossi [[spoiler:caught his brother William, a notorious serial killer who was later executed, which disgraced Henry and caused his fiancé to break off their engagement]]), so he attempted this by trying to kill Rossi's own "family" (the other members of the BAU) in return. However, due to both PlotArmor and Rossi being a {{Badass}}, [[ForegoneConclusion it didn't work]].
