* In ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', Harley Quinn's main motivation is to get revenge on Superman for his killing of the Joker. What Harley appears to have conveniently forgotten is that the Joker got himself killed on purpose by tricking Superman into killing his wife Lois Lane and their unborn child, thus activating a detonator the Joker rigged to her heart that activated when she died and detonated a nuke that destroyed the city of Metropolis, then going out of his way to torment Superman over this, which he did purely because he was tired of always losing to Batman and wanted to get an easy win over Superman. Or that she herself was complicit in the Joker's actions. So Superman's actions were entirely justified, while Harley clearly has a bad case of NeverMyFault about the whole thing.

* The dilemma of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' is set up by escalating cases of this; Woody gets jealous of Buzz's inadvertently becoming the favourite toy of their owner Andy, so tries to knock him under the bed to regain attention, he instead knocks him out the window by mistake. Buzz, thinking he did it on purpose, attacks Woody during a car trip, accidentally leaving them stranding, leaving Woody once again livid with Buzz. This is lampshaded in their BlameGame argument following this:

** Khan in ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''. {{Lampshaded}} even. After Khan explains his beef with Kirk, Chekov says, "Captain Kirk was your host. You repaid his hospitality by trying to steal his ship and murder him!" Khan ignores the fact that Kirk, in simply exiling Khan to his own planet, was more charitable than he had to be given Khan's actions both on the ''Enterprise'' and as a fugitive from international justice 300 years ago. Kirk could have easily taken Khan and his people back to Earth and put them in the hands of Federation justice, which might end in a number of ways unfavorable to Khan, his crew, and his girlfriend.

Plus, Kirk left them on a very nice planet, and it's hardly his fault it underwent a drastic climate change and Khan's wife died.

It's relatively common that the reason that Alice wants to kill Bob is because Bob killed Charlie. Revenge seems pretty straightforward. But it gets a lot more murky [[CrimeOfSelfDefense when Charlie was trying to kill Bob and Bob was just defending himself.]] They were in a war, it was a fight, Charlie surprised Bob at the worst time, it was an accident, the list goes on. He didn't really want to kill Charlie, and would have avoided doing so if possible. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone It's likely he regrets it greatly.]] But all of that doesn't matter to Alice, though. Even if Charlie was a zombie actively trying to bite someone and Bob just defended them, Bob has to ''pay''.

* ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'': At some point, Clip gets the idea into his head of taking revenge upon Anomander Rake aka the Black-Winged Lord aka the god the Tiste Andii of Bluerose worship for allegedly allowing them to degenerate and eventually be slaughtered by the Letherii. As far as Clip is concerned, Anomander Rake deserves to die. Never mind that neither had he anything to do with the fate of the Andii of the Andara, they did not even ask him if it's okay to worship him as a god and expect anything in return. It's questionable whether he even knew of their existence.

* In ''Film/JasonBourne'', The Asset wants to kill Jason because exposing Blackbriar towards the end of ''Film/TheBourneUltimatum'' got him outed and captured. Except that Bourne never would have found out about Blackbriar if the Asset hadn't [[spoiler:''murdered his father]], thereby driving him into Treadstone.

* In ''TheLizzieBennetDiaries'', Lydia frequently insulted Lizzie, making comments about how she would need to change if she wanted a boyfriend. But when Lizzie [[InnocentlyInsensitive bluntly told her]] that she would need to change her ways to have a successful career (something Lydia wasn't interested in), Lydia was offended and remained furious for a long time, viciously criticizing Lizzie and guilt-tripping her about Lizzie's fear of abandonment and lack of people skills.

* In the ''XMenEvolution'' episode "Blind Alley", Mystique pretends to be Scott's brother Alex, supposedly stuck in Mexico after losing his passport, in order to lure Scott out on his own, knocking him out and leaving him stuck in the middle of the Mexican desert without his glasses to stop his eyes, saying "That's payback!" after Scott let her get captured inside a military base in "Day of Recovery". However Scott did that because [[spoiler:she had abducted Professor X and impersonated him throughout the two-part episode "Day of Reckoning",]] and refused to divulge the location of [[spoiler:the real Professor X.]] Note that when he managed to find his way to the city, she intended to knock him out and do it again, somewhere even more remote.
