* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'': During the ''Forever Red'' arc of the sequel, ''Ghosts of the Past'', this is Asgard's [[AwakeningTheSleepingGiant response]] to the Red Room [[spoiler: kidnapping, torturing, and brainwashing Harry]]. They curse Russia, and all nations under their influence, so that all their natural resources wither away (crops fail, fuels turn to dust, etc) as do any imported from elsewhere. And they make it clear that this is the just the start, and that they won't let up until [[spoiler: Harry is freed]] and the perpetrators are surrendered.

[[SortingAlgorithmOfMortality Not quite.]] It turns out that the common ground most monsters and antagonists, regardless of alignment, intelligence, or sanity, seem to share is a habit to pick targets who have just [[KickTheDog exposed]] some [[DeathBySex minor vice]] of their own. [[MadonnaWhoreComplex Given the choice between the prim and chaste (but initially vulnerable)]] FinalGirl, [[MadonnaWhoreComplex or the smoldering, seductive temptress]], they will, without fail, [[DeathBySex gut the temptress]], probably [[MyGirlIsNotASlut just after she's had sex to show us how promiscuous she is]].

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' novel ''Vampire in the Mists'', elven vampire Jander Sunstar is transported from [[TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms Faerun]] to the Land of Mists by the Dark Powers to punish the vampire lord Strahd von Zarovich of Barovia for his crimes. While in his stay, he has vowed to [[HunterOfHisOwnKind destroy vampirism in all of its forms]] and views this as a crusade against the Dark Powers themselves.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Oberyn Martell references this trope when he tells Tyrion that he is living evidence of the god's kindness. Because if gods were cruel, they would have made him (a bloodthirsty and violent man) the first born and heir of House Martell, while his older, more thoughtful and rational brother Doran, would have been the younger.



* The Darkspawn of ''Franchise/DragonAge'' are said to be what came of the Tventir Imperium's attempt to invade heaven. The Maker was so angry he struck the magicians responsible with a terrible curse and cast them back to Thedas to sow chaos and destruction-according to the Chantry anyway; there are those who believe the Darkspawn's origin was something else, though the series hasn't definitively stated anything either way.

[[spoiler:While the magicians are revealed to be real, they claim that heaven was already corrupted by the time they invaded, and there are evidence that the darkspawn's taint precedes these events making the Chantry's version of these events unclear]].

* Death in the ''Film/FinalDestination'' movies primarily goes after those who cheat him in some way, but at least in the later films, Death seems to wait for ridiculously minor infractions. Such as disobeying the "No food or drinks allowed" sign (particularly onerous when you're at a theater with the same taboo, solely to force you to pay their markups).

It is especially ironic that even director Creator/JohnCarpenter, who essentially caused the "boom" in the masked slasher genre by making the film ''[[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} Halloween]]'', was often mistaken to have been making a statement about promiscuity. Quite the opposite in fact, Carpenter has said on many occasions; the characters who were picked off during or after sex were only so treated because they were distracted and not concentrating on what was happening, not because he wanted to make any sort of moral statement. The main survivor of the teens in the film survived despite having partaken in illicit drugs earlier in the film, for example, but was collected enough to survive a run-in with a masked maniac (with a fortunate chance stop-in of a psychiatrist with a vendetta, armed with a gun, who ended the encounter and saved her life). Similarly, in the first ''[[Film/FridayThe13th1980 Friday the 13th]]'', the survivor partakes in illicit drugs and, in the original script, a premarital affair. The survivor being a chaste and pure character is something that has occurred with the {{Flanderization}} of the genre.
