* In the backstory of ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'', [[spoiler:[[EvilutionaryBiologist Prof. Banno]] went to a young businessman to get a research grant, but the businessman turned him down due to the morally questionable nature of the work. Enraged, Banno had one of his [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Roidmudes]] imitate the businessman's appearance and used it for this trope by beating it to a bloody pulp. This kicked off the plot of the series in two ways: Banno's partner Krim Steinbelt found out about this and ended their partnership (which also lead to his creating the Drive System), and the victimized Roidmude [[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal turned on Banno]] before plotting to wipe out all humanity]].

** In the HandOfThrawn duology, a corrupted copy of the Caamasi Document surfaces. The document details Palpatine's successful plan to raze the planet of a species of {{Actual Pacifist}}s who were almost universally opposed to him, and as it turns out, he used Bothan agents to lower the planet's shields. The document doesn't actually say specifically who these Bothans were, Bothan authorities deny any knowledge, and the issue acts as a ConflictBall between peoples who want the names coughed up or, failing that, want revenge on the Bothan people, and peoples who think that revenge on the Bothan people is a terrible idea. In many cases, the Bothan issue is no more than an excuse for rivals to war over.

* Defied by Prince Oberyn Martell in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11910526/3/Death-has-no-Master-but-Life-has-Servants Death has no Master but Life has Servants]]'', who's ''irate'' when three guards try to beat a young Harry Baratheon, assuming the Prince would want some kind of payback for his sister Elia's gruesome demise to the Baratheon rule. Oberyn ''does'' seek revenge, but he's no Lannister: he refuses to blame a child for his brother's sin, and he certainly won't raise a hand against him.
