** Centuries ago, [[WellIntentionedExtremist Althair the Mad Sage]] and his followers carried out the Great Purge across the Known Worlds, killing thousands (especially children) to try and prevent the "[[TheAntichrist Incoming Darkness]]".
** Shortly after coming to power, Phobos had the entirety of the rest of Meridian's nobility [[AFeteWorseThanDeath murdered at a ball]] in order to prevent any rival claimants to the throne.

* During the early first century BC, Rome went through a bloody purge when Marius seized power, then another Sulla's proscription. Part of what made UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar so popular in the late first century was that he famously ''didn't'' conduct any proscriptions against his enemies. However, this left them alive to plot against him and… well… we know how that turned out. The Second Triumvirate's bloody proscriptions were essentially Octavian's attempt to avoid repeating Uncle Julius' "mistake". This trope was well-entrenched for the duration of the Empire, with many Emperors targetting any perceived rivals, as well as their friends and families. Many also tried to eliminate recalcitrant senators or generals. This greatly contributed to the chronic SuccessionCrisis of the later Empire.

* During the early first century BC, Rome went through The downfall of UsefulNotes/TheRomanRepublic began as a result of ideological factionalism that resulted in bloody purge when purges of rivals, their families, their friends. A process that became normalized during UsefulNotes/TheRomanEmpire:
** The Gracchi brothers, Tiberius and Gaius, became popular tribunes keen to pass important land reforms and check some of the bureaucratic corruption of the Senate, and restitution of land intended for veterans. In response, the Senate brutally purged first Tiberius, and later, his brother Gaius, who followed his brother. Both of them, their supporters and their friends, despite being guaranteed immunity by laws and office, were beaten to death with wooden sticks and benches, with the same fate meted out to their supporters, and all of their bodies were dumped into the Tiber River.
** The consul who followed the Gracchi was
Marius seized power, then another who like the brothers took up the cause of poor soldiers and clashed with the Senate, leading to him and his factions purging the Senate. The Senate in turn summoned Sulla Felix who marched his army into Rome, had himself declared Dictator Perpetuo for the first time, and issued a famous list of proscriptions by which he and his associations (Pompey and Crassus among others) put up lists to mark their opponents for deaths, steal their property and keep it in their hands. One of the individuals who was nearly a victim of Sulla's proscription. Part proscriptions was Marius' nephew UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar.
** Caesar as a lawyer and politician championed Gracchian land reform and earned himself much love and support among the Roman people and his soldiers, but having been aware of the precedents visited on Marius and the original brothers, built alliances with a wide coalition to better protect himself, including with Sulla's allies Crassus and Pompey (with whom he formed the First Triumvirate). Eventually a series of political GambitPileup and polarization between his group (the Populares) and the conservatives (the optimates) led to the civil war that led to his crossing of the Rubicon. Incidentally, Caesar tried to avoid this himself, part
of what made UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar him so popular in the late first century was that he famously ''didn't'' conduct any proscriptions against his enemies. enemies and instead invoked DefeatMeansFriendship. However, this left them alive to plot against him and… well… we know how that turned out. him, and he ended up assassinated.

The Second Triumvirate's bloody proscriptions were essentially Octavian's attempt to avoid repeating Uncle Julius' "mistake". This trope was "mistake", he later performed a similar purge on his other rivals before they turned traitor on him (as Pompey did). In the Empire, purges became common in the reign of Tiberius and Sejanus, and the other Julio-Claudians, and it became well-entrenched for the duration of the Empire, with many Emperors targetting any perceived rivals, as well as their friends and families. Many also tried to eliminate recalcitrant senators or generals. This greatly contributed to the chronic SuccessionCrisis of the later Empire.



* The Stalinist [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn U.S.S.R]]'s Great Purges are perhaps the most infamous Real Life example. In them, [[UsefulNotes/JosefStalin Stalin]] encouraged the Security Services to have a field day and imprison or kill ''way'' more people than was sensible. Then he the security services purged for targeting so many innocents. This was the fate of Nikolai Yezhov, the "Vanishing Commissar" from the {{Unperson}} image: after carrying out the worst of the purge on Stalin's orders, he was executed and scapegoated so thoroughly (in Russian the Purges are sometimes called the "Yezhovina" that his previous relationship with Stalin was removed from the public record.
** A ''big'' downside to this: first, Stalin's actions cost him some of the most experienced officers, which led to problems when his [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter good buddy Adolf]] went back on that non-aggression pact a year before Stalin had expected him to.

** A ''big'' downside UsefulNotes/JosefStalin driven by the ad-hoc bureaucracy, general paranoia, and other "general hunches" began a purge on the suspected Trotskyists, traitors and Old Bolsheviks. This resulted in the famous "Moscow show trials", where the accused admitted, in front of newsreel cameras and the global press, confessions about involvement in the most absurd plots and conspiracies, all of which were determined to this: first, have been forced by torture and threats to families (which were carried out in any case).
** Then the purges extended beyond that scope, and gradually extended to every part of the Soviet Union, and every organ of bureaucracy and the army, leading to a million imprisoned in TheGulag and 800,000 casualties. The NKVD carried out most of the purges, and even they weren't exempt, with first Genrikh Yagoda being denounced and shot, followed by Nikolai Yezhov who oversaw the bloodiest phase of the purges, before becoming purged by Stalin himself and replaced by Lavrentii Beria, who in turn oversaw the purge of the Polish intelligentsia in the Katyn massacre.
** Towards the end of his life, Stalin initiated another purge, targeting Jewish professionals across the Soviet Union. This was known as "the Doctor's Plot". It was reversed only on

* Kind of a feature of Chinese governments since the fall of Qing Dynasty in 1912. Most notable would be the anti-rightist purge of the early 1950s, when the Chinese Communist Party rescinded its amnesty to all those who had joined before the end of the Civil War. Suddenly, pre-War activities were grounds for re-education or execution even if you'd been a loyal servant of the Party ever since. A few million may have died in the process. At the same time, land reform denounced wealthy peasants as 'feudal' and 'bourgeois' and their property was confiscated. As many as a million landowners and members of their families may have died at the hands of their neighbors with the Party's tacit encouragement. Many more did not survive the subsequent deportation or re-education.

* During the early first century BC, Rome went through a bloody purge when Marius seized power, then another Sulla's proscription. Part of what made [[Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]] so popular in the late first century was that he famously ''didn't'' conduct any proscriptions against his enemies. However, this left them alive to plot against him and… well… we know how that turned out. The Second Triumvirate's bloody proscriptions were essentially Octavian's attempt to avoid repeating Uncle Julius' "mistake". This trope was well-entrenched for the duration of the Empire, with many Emperors targetting any perceived rivals, as well as their friends and families. Many also tried to eliminate recalcitrant senators or generals. This greatly contributed to the chronic SuccessionCrisis of the later Empire.

Daenerys likewise takes over the Dothraki by purging all its great Khals in a single fireball.

Dolorous Edd and his friends, as well as Ser Davos, barely regroup in time to organize and protect themselves from Thorne. In the Iron Islands, Euron usurps the throne after murdering his brother Balon forcing Theon, Yara and their supporters to escape before he kills them.
