** 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 TotalWar 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.

* In ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'', Shido [[MoralEventHorizon rigs Rei's grades]] because [[spoiler:[[DisproportionateRetribution his father was being investigated by her father for political corruption]]]].

* In ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'', Shido [[MoralEventHorizon rigs Rei's grades]] because [[spoiler:[[DisproportionateRetribution his father was being investigated by her father for political corruption]]]]. This one is a bit twisty, since Shido also hated his father, but still carried out his order.


Added DiffLines:

* The effects of wars can last for quite a long time, sometime forming part of the justification for a later war, or leading to one or [[PhyrricVictory both]] sides continuing to nurse resentment long after combat ends.

* ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts'' takes this concept, and covers it with badly written villains.

* ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts'' takes this concept, and covers it with badly written villains. The villains' objective is to exact revenge on [[spoiler:Aya because her father held the first incarnation of the tournament and had their mothers {{Mind Rape}}d and sold into slavery when they lost, and because her mother won said tournament and doomed the mothers to said fate]].



* Actually a plot point in ''Manga/{{Judge}}''. [[spoiler: Everyone playing the Judge game except [[BigBad Hiro and Hikari]] are the sons and daughters of those involved in the trial regarding the death of Atsuya, Hiro's brother and Hikari's bofriend. The defendant, a drunk driver, bribed the judge and jury to get a reduced sentence.]] Only [[spoiler: Rina and her mother]] survives for this reason - [[spoiler: her mother refused to take the bribe]].

** In stereo with Jeremiah, Ezekiel also got an oracle from God condemning Israelites for saying "The fathers eat sour grapes and the children's teeth are set on edge," and stating that God is going to put a stop to that nonsense and make individuals take responsibility for all of their own infractions.

*** Played painfully straight along with [[RevengebeforeReason Revenge before Reason]] by the Dwarfs of WarhammerFantasy, who hold grudges for as long as it takes to settle them, no matter if everyone related to the grudge is long dead. A great example being when an Empire noble hired a group of Dwarf masons to build a massive castle, and after all that hard work paid them. The problem? He shorted them, by how much you ask... 2 & 1/2 coins(which is hinted to be accidental). The grudge was written down in the Great Book, and decades later a massive throng of dwarfs marched down to demand retribution from the Noble's decedent, who to him just seemed like a massive army had appeared on his doorsteps demanding blood.

* ''Series/HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'' had an episode in which the homicide investigators find that an ordinary, middle-class, family man was murdered just because his ancestor (a woman in this case) was a notorious pre-''Civil War''(!) bounty hunter & lyncher of slaves trying to escape from the South.
