* Henriette Caillaux: In pre UsefulNotes/WorldWarI France, a big feud erupted between her husband Joseph -- then the left-leaning minister of Finance and a proponent of progressive taxation -- and the conservative newspaper Le Figaro. In order to destroy Joseph Caillaux's reputation, Gaston Calmette, the Figaro's director, bribed the Caillauxs' maid to steal embarrassing letters Joseph had written (get your minds out of the gutter; the letters indicated he had secretly sunk a Senate bill on taxation he publicly supported as a political tactic). Henriette [[MemeticMutation did not approve]]: she made an appointment with Calmette, and once in his office, simply said, "You know why I am here," before [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill shooting him five times in the chest]].\\\
Then, because simply killing someone who attacked her husband's reputation was not enough, she and her lawyer [[MagnificentBastard took advantage]] of the [[DoubleStandard existing stereotypes]] of the time, pleaded the unpremeditated crime of passion despite the fact that premeditation was glaringly obvious, and eventually was [[KarmaHoudini acquitted]] a mere four months after the murder, before starting a career as an art historian while her husband stayed in politics until 1940.

* ''[[Comicbook/TheNewGods Big Barda]]'' will destroy anyone who even ''looks'' at her husband Mister Miracle funny. That, or she'll teleport you to another galaxy...

Barda seems to believe all problems will go away if you beat them to an unrecognizable pulp... which admittedly is accurate most of the time.
* LoisLane becomes this each time Superman is [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered]]. For instance this time after her wedding to Clark, when he was kidnapped after temporarily losing his powers. Lois took her Army brat background to extremes, becoming a GIJane in order to come to the rescue.

* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', a female Shepard can show some signs of this trope, but in ''[[Fanfic/WeightlessMassEffect Weightless]]'', it's turned UpToEleven. To demonstrate, when Garrus had a clue to find Sidonis, he decided to go alone (as opposed to [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 canon]]) so that Shepard would be safe. What did Shepard do? Used brute force on him (while they were naked and lying in his bed no less) and ''ordered'' Garrus to take her with him because it ''is'' her business to deal with the one who hurt what belonged to her (Garrus). Then she proceeded to [[LeaveNoWitnesses kill everyone]] who stood in her way because they ''may'' be traced back to Garrus. Even Garrus found her decidedly Renegade behavior a bit unsettling and compared her to Aria.

* Two HoYay versions come from the BL VisualNovel ''VisualNovel/DramaticalMurder''. On one hand, if [[{{Yakuza}} Koujaku]] is the chosen LoveInterest for Aoba Seragaki not only he will be the VictoriousChildhoodFriend, but he'll become this to him ''and you better not threaten his boyfriend''. On the other, Clear is a huge CloudCuckooLander and even Aoba can barely keep up with him, but if his "Master" is in danger he '''will''' show you that BewareTheSillyOnes fits him ''like a glove''.

* During the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisbon_Regicide assasination of King Carlos I of Portugal in 1908]], Queen Amelia [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome beat one of the rifle-armed assasins over the head with her bouquet of flowers]] while crying "Infamous bastard!".

* Henriette Caillaux: In pre WorldWarOne France, a big feud erupted between her husband Joseph -- then the left-leaning minister of Finance and a proponent of progressive taxation -- and the conservative newspaper Le Figaro. In order to destroy Joseph Caillaux's reputation, Gaston Calmette, the Figaro's director, bribed the Caillauxs' maid to steal embarrassing letters Joseph had written (get your minds out of the gutter; the letters indicated he had secretly sunk a Senate bill on taxation he publicly supported as a political tactic). Henriette [[MemeticMutation did not approve]]: she made an appointment with Calmette, and once in his office, simply said, "You know why I am here," before [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill shooting him five times in the chest]].\\\

* Sharon Osbourne. Messing with her husband, Ozzy, isn't a good idea when she's around (Louis Walsh has a glass of water thrown over him when he let slip a casual insult). And once, when Ozzy's former band members kept bothering him over claims of past due royalties, she responded by having their contributions in the songs ''wiped out and re-recorded by different musicians''. As Ozzy put it: "She just snapped."

** She has a similar moment in "Caged", when [=McGee=] is held prisoner in a women's prison. After he's released, she asks, "Did they hurt you?", then declares with complete matter-of-fact sincerity, "Because if they did, I will ''kick their ass''.

* Threatening or physically assaulting Eren from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is a sure fire way to press Mikasa's BerserkButton. Not a good idea considering she's likely the second most powerful human in the world and, much more, she's perfectly willing to face down everything from a squad of cannon armed soldiers to entire hordes of Titans to the world's strongest man himself just to keep Eren safe. (She's more a Violently Protective Foster-Sister, but even still.)
