** There are other instances where someone (Balon Greyjoy and the Sand Snakes) acknowledges that the people they spent years plotting revenge against are all dead, yet they still want revenge against their House. It gets rather ridiculous with Balon, who blames Ned for the death of his two eldest sons due to Ned fighting on the opposite side to Balon, one of them dying in a battle Ned wasn't even present at.

* ''Series/{{Revenge}}: Victoria Grayson wants retribution against Emily for what happened to her family, actual or perceived. Thing is, after what Emily went through, and how much of it for which she was responsible, she [[LaserGuidedKarma had it coming]], especially given that her season 3 finale fate of being committed to an asylum [[ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine was exactly what she did years ago to young Emily]].

* David in the ''Animorphs'' fanfic ''FanFic/AnimorphsRedux''; he's determined to get revenge on the Animorphs for their previous defeats of him, which ended in him getting trapped as a rat, completely ignoring the fact that not only did they do that ''after'' he tried to kill them, but more importantly, ''he's now in an alternate timeline where none of the team had done ANYTHING to him before he started trying to kill them''.

** John Harrison and Kirk in ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness''. Harrison seeks revenge on Admiral Marcus, and ends up [[spoiler:killing Christopher Pike in his attack on the admiral. Pike's death]] then drives Kirk to swear revenge on Harrison. Both of them thus end up largely playing into the hands of Admiral Marcus and his plans to instigate war, blinded by their personal desires for revenge.

* The dwarves of ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'' keep an enormous Book of Grudges, in which every slight and insult made to a dwarf in inscribed. These are avenged in blood, which naturally causes more dwarves to be killed, and their names are added to the Book, despite the enormous toll this takes on the population.

* In ''WebAnimation/MysterySkullsAnimated'' Lewis has come back as a ghost hellbent on getting revenge on Arthur for his murder. Unfortunately he is either unaware or doesn't care that Arthur was [[DemonicPossession possessed]] at the time and was visibly horrified at Lewis's murder at his own hand. Further complicating matters Arthur seems to have forgotten Lewis's death and is now desperately seeking his missing friend on a visible lack of sleep that may be causing hallucinations meaning he's not likely to recognize Lewis's flaming skeletal ghost and wouldn't be able to even try and explain what really happened if he did.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': Both the Crane Hermit and Tien Shinhan are furious at Goku for killing Mercenary Tao, their younger brother and mentor, respectively. Goku calls them out on it, pointing out that Tao was a PsychoForHire who was hired by the [[ArmiesAreEvil Red Ribbon Army]] to kill ''him'' and he was only defending himself; neither of them cares.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' Lord Karstark wants revenge against Jaime Lannister for killing two of his sons. He does this by killing two of Jaime's relatives who were held captive, killing several men on his own side to get to them. It's pointed out that killing defenseless prisoners and your own allies is not the same as killing an enemy in battle, but the distinction seems lost on him.

* This is implied to be the case the two families that make up [[WebOriginal/SCPFoundation SCP-]][[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2039 2039]]. Mabel Pike essentially made a DealWithTheDevil that left her family and the Wagner family in an eternal feud, because Blaine Wagner, the family's patriarch, [[spoiler:murdered Mabel's girlfriend when they were younger]]. The exact circumstances are never given though, the feud itself only began because of the supernatural aid of a mysterious entity, and the Foundation report indicates that Blaine [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone suffers from night terrors]] while frequently murmuring the name of [[spoiler:Mabel's girlfriend.]]

* Frizz and Nug were at the constant receiving end of this in ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone''. The heroes thrived on punishing them for trying to steal the title stone and [[SeriousBusiness ruin dreams]] ([[DisproportionateRetribution often far more severely than the crime itself]]). They never take notice to the fact they are TheDragAlong in every instance, either due to being PressGanged by Sgt Blob and Urpgor or because Zordrak threatens to ''execute'' them if they don't. It's implied the heroes went through a great few Urpneys in this manner, before Zordrak simply got sick of offing minions.

Later episodes try to make the heroes more pragmatic, as well as give them [[NotSoHarmlessVillain a much better provocation]] so their vendetta seems more proportionate, though the fact nearly all Urpneys are unwilling slaves is still never remotely brought up between them.
