* The Witch from ''IntoTheWoods'' laid a curse on the Baker's entire family forever so that they could never bear children, just because the Baker's father stole her rampion without asking. What makes it even worse is that she had originally only wanted their child, but ''then'' laid the barrenness curse on them just because she wasn't entirely satisfied.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV''. This is the ultimate reason the Dragonsong War continued for 1000 years. [[spoiler:Ishgard originally started the war, by ambushing and murdering a dragon for her eyes (which held strong magic powers). The dragons continued the war up to the present day (when the Warrior of Light was able to negotiate a truce, and justified it by saying that despite the fact that 1000 years had passed, and most Ishgardians had no knowledge of the war's beginning (being taught false reasons for it), due to their long lifespans to them it might as well have happened yesterday.]]

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', Chrom's older sister [[ActualPacifist Emmeryn]] is the victim of quite a bit of stigma as a result of her father waging an overzealous war with Plegia that resulted in numerous deaths on both sides, said war only ending when her father died. While most of said stigma is at the hands of the AxCrazy Gangrel, Chrom reveals to the Avatar that she was also a victim of this from the Ylisseans as well, with some going so far as to throw rocks at her, all of this when she ''wasn't even ten years old.''

* Ganondorf from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' vows to exterminate the descendants of Link, Zelda and the Six Sages after getting [[SealedEvilInACan sealed into the Evil Realm]] in the climax of the game.
** The worst part of the ''Ocarina of Time'' thing? He ''does''. He caused the world to be flooded in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''...right?
*** [[ContinuitySnarl Maybe.]] In any case a fair amount of people would have had to survive that flood anyway, if there are still people around.
*** Also, Ganon didn't flood the the world. The Gods flooded the world to seal Ganon, sealing many others in the process.
** Ganondorf's words may refer to the events of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' on the [=SNES=], since ''Ocarina of Time'' was a clear prequel to it.
*** Which raises a lot of questions considering it took place in a timeline when the Hero of Time was ''killed'' in the final confrontation.
** Don't forget ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''' [[DarkIsNotEvil Twilight Realm]], which is populated by the descendants of people who tried and failed to get the Triforce before Ganon was born.
** ''Ganondorf's entire existence'' is due to this. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' [[GodOfEvil Demise's]] last act before being sealed [[spoiler:in the Master Sword]] forever was to curse Link and Zelda's reincarnations to always face an incarnation of his hatred: Ganondorf.

* In ''Film/HouseOnHauntedHill1999'', the vengeful ghosts arranged the guest list for the party specifically to include the descendants of five members of Vannacutt's staff who didn't die in the long-ago fire so they could kill the descendants of the staff who tortured them decades ago. Subverted when the last survivor in the house reveals that [[spoiler:he's adopted, so is therefore spared by the ghosts. Although why someone who was ''adopted'' by a descendent is any less eligible to become a proxy-victim than someone who's genetically related raises still more issues about the injustice of this trope.
