Revenge Through Corruption is a subtrope of RevengeByProxy and is related to SinsOfOurFathers. SinsOfOurFathers refers to revenge against the descendants of someone that is dead or missing. RevengeByProxy refers to revenge by harming someone important to the living person instead of taking the option of going directly after the target of revenge. RevengeThroughCorruption can overlap either trope. What distinguishes this trope is the method of revenge.

* Subverted Double-Subverted by Bill in ''Film/KillBill'', who kidnaps the child of his recent ex-lover and leaves her for dead only to give the child a perfectly happy, normal upbringing. [[note]]Because the child is his.[[/note]][[/note]] Then the bride comes, and since she's going to corrupt the kid anyway, ''he unloads a revolver in their general direction''. Possibly as a way of cutting ties before mommy dearest stabs out daddy's heart, but that's enough permanent psychological abuse to get her in the nuthouse.

Instead of inflicting physical harm, the villain attacks the mind and soul. The intent is to get revenge on an enemy by making someone important to them evil, insane, under the control of the villain, hooked on drugs, or some other comparable effect -- in essence, an engineered FaceHeelTurn or FaceMonsterTurn. Victims may include friends, family, sidekicks, or even distant descendants. So long as the target's loved ones are shells of their formed selves, than success is achieved.

* Manfred von Karma of the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series. His retaliation for getting a single penalty in his career as a prosecutor? [[spoiler:Kill the offending attorney, Gregory Edgeworth, then take said attorney's son Miles, who wanted to become a defense lawyer and twist him into a ruthless prosecutor who cares less about the truth and more getting any defendants he sees in the same courtroom as him guilty. And that's just ''one'' part of von Karma's revenge. Thanks to a certain blue-suited, spiky-haired attorney, von Karma's revenge fails and, come the next game and a year of soul-searching, Miles has cast aside years of von Karma's coaching and re-developed himself into a truth-seeking force of the law, something that would have von Karma groaning in his grave.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies''; the three part Blaine Arc was about recurring villain Geraldine Husk and a revenge plot against Clover, whom she blamed for her first defeat and arrest. (Despite the fact that said defeat happened because she turned Clover into a brainwashed cyborg to use against the other heroines). The first part was fooling a male spy named Blaine into believing Clover was a criminal who had to be eliminated; when this failed, she set in motion several projects bent on making Clover miserable and ruining her reputation, saving the lethal blow for last; she bought the members-only spa Clover belonged to, then opened it to the public, and bought Clover's favorite boutique and vegetarian restaurant, turning them into a thrift shop and steakhouse. Then she framed Clover for plagiarizing Sam's report, stealing Alex's car and trashing it, and stealing classified WOOHP weaponry, getting her suspended by Jerry. Her one flaw was underestimating Clover's intelligence; she realized the incidents were related, as did the other heroines once Geraldine's escape was reported. Thus, the final part of the villain's plan (kidnapping and killing Clover) didn't go as planned, and she was beaten again.
