* Attainder is an old English legal concept where parliament passes a bill to execute a political enemy , as well as strip them of their titles and lands. Attainder also worked a corruption of blood, such that nothing could pass from the attained to their heirs or pass through the attained, such that later inheritances would skip their family. This was so abused in the English Civil War that the US Constitution specifically bans it.

* The title character of ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo'' plans to kill [[spoiler:his enemy Fernand]]'s son [[spoiler:Albert]] as part of his revenge, [[InvokedTrope Invoking]] the trope by name. ''Literature/TheVampireCountOfMonteCristo'' goes into this a little more than the main novel. Apparently, even a vampire can be sicked by collateral damage.

** The feud is exacerbated in the follow-up trilogy, where Valya Harkonnen seemingly kills Vorian Atreides (he survives) in front of his descendant. Valya seems happy to allow let the rest of the Atreides live, especially since Vorian beseeched his descendant to let it go. Unfortunately, the manner in which Vorian is "killed" is cowardly and backhanded, only infuriating the young Atreides. So when he and Valya's little brother end up courtiers to Emperor Roderick, it's the Atreides who ends up rekindling the feud, seeking retribution for the murders of Vorian and his brother earlier.

'''Tarvek:''' ''Fine.'' That's just what I'd expect from a despot's spoiled ''brat''. After all, it doesn't matter that it was my ''father'' and his ''friends'' who did all that. I was what? ''Three'' Maybe?

* A complicated case with ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Rose Quartz, lead the Crystal Gems on their rebellion against Homeworld to save Earth and her comrades. Much later, to give birth to Steven, Rose gave up her form and Steven inherited her gem. Now, Rose's enemies want to get back at her by punishing Steven. However, since Gems' forms are essentially projections from their gem, which Rose passed onto Steven, said enemies think Steven literally '''[[MistakenIdentity is]]''' Rose.
