* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': [[spoiler: The persecution of the Eldian people is justified based on this, with Marleyan propaganda stating their ancestors were an EvilEmpire that committed over a thousand years of atrocities before being defeated. The mainland Eldians have been raised to resent their kin living in seclusion on Paradis, who supposedly escaped their "just punishment" by abandoning their kin and hiding within the Walls. A young Grisha Yeager decried this oppression, pointing out the unfairness of punishing subsequent generations for the crimes of people long dead. In comparison, most Eldian children are raised to believe it is their duty to atone for their ancestors' crimes by sacrificing their lives as soldiers and Warriors for Marley's war machine]].

* In Myth/NorseMythology, when Loki's mischief finally crosses the line, the gods can't just kill him because of an oath of fellowship he swore with Odin in younger and happier days. There's nothing stopping them killing his ''family'', though, and part of his doom is that one of his sons is driven out of his mind and kills his brother, whose entrails are then used to forge the unbreakable fetters the gods use to imprison Loki.

Added DiffLines:

** After formerly occupied countries were liberated, people took to punishing children fathered by SS officers with local women for their years of suffering during the war - children of the so called "Lebensborn" programs set up in Norway, for example, became especially popular targets, since all of the people who actually ''were'' responsible for their ordeals were already dead or incarcerated. Such children tended to be ostracized and heaped with absolutely horrific abuse, and this was ''openly encouraged'' by the governments of said countries, who remain largely unapologetic to this day. Understandably, many of these unfortunate children grew up very bitter and angry, over being punished for having the ''audacity'' to be born.

** The AmericanCivilWar/UsefulNotes had economic effects that continue to linger. The South was already at a severe economic disadvantage by most metrics when the war began, but the Total War policies that brought it to a close devastated much of the existing industry and predatory practices after the war exacerbated the effects. To this day, former Confederate states are generally behind the rest of the country in economic and health statistics, though other factors have come into play by now, and there is considerable lingering resentment in the South at their situation.
