* ''Fanfic/BlackSky'' 's spin-off, [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11581883/4/Parenting-is-not-a-Varia-Quality Parenting is not a Varia Quality]], Mainomai's bloodline is revealed to be under a Vengeance Curse casted by [[ClassicalMythology Hephaestus]] for being the issue of the god's wife Aphrodite's affair with Ares. Mainomai's partner Tyr is incensed by the unfairness of taking it out on the innocent descendent rather than the adulteress herself and manages to break the Curse.

** The player character of ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' and his/her sibling are in a very similar situation to Ashley. Both Ryder twins had promising careers in the Alliance military until their father was caught engaging in illegal AI research and dishonorably discharged. Both twins were then quietly drummed out, and found that any mention of their last name led to doors shutting in their faces. At least one of the reasons they agreed to follow their father to the Andromeda galaxy was because pretty much every other path the family had for a real future had been shut off.

Why someone would target the descendants rather than the one who originally did the wrong tends to vary, but it's usually due to the original offender not being alive enough to go after and make suffer. This is especially true of villains who are immortal or undead, or many a SealedEvilInACan, whose hatreds can take years if not decades or centuries to fester and grow. More often than not, this form of revenge is pursued by villains rather than heroes, since targeting someone other than the person who actually committed the wrong, and who may not have anything to do with it aside from being descended from the person who did is a good way to wind up on the wrong side of the RuleOfEmpathy.

Or that the descendant benefitted (or still benefits) from his ancestors' crimes; the money grandfather stole allowed the father to go to law school, which allowed son to grow up in comfortable circumstances; therefore, son deserves to be punished for grandfather's theft. This is especially true of villains who are immortal or undead, or many a SealedEvilInACan, whose hatreds can take years if not decades or centuries to fester and grow.

* One really nasty example of a one-man vendetta is Rasputin in ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' who obsesses over murdering the title character, despite her having done nothing to earn his ire. Unlike other cases he wasn't even victimised and there was no justification for his hatred. He took his anger at her father the Czar for offending him and denying him power, to an extent where he wanted to end his bloodline and annihilate the Romanov dynasty. DisproportionateRetribution at its finest.

*** Played painfully straight along with RevengebeforeReason with 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.
