There's also the practice of vandalizing a student's desk with horrible messages, which happens when a student's reputation has gotten low enough that the entire school not only hates her, but ''wants her to die''.
* In ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'', when a player commits the mistake of having the PlayerCharacter focus only on the chosen LoveInterest and ignore all the other potential lovers, they will get so jealous that they'll become all too willing to use the infamous "bombs", aka using the "rumors tactics" towards the PC.

It's very hard to recover from a gone-off bomb with regular characters, and an essential Game Over with NintendoHard characters such as Shiori Fujisaki or Kei Hazuki.
