* Countries often get a taste of this after being humiliated one time too many in the last war. Germany after WWI for example, was a broken nation, with the economy in shambles, the military in ruins, a new government forced upon the public, and national morale at an all time low. The victorious Allies were responsible for many of these, deliberately weakening Germany so that it could not rise up again like it did during the Great War. Unfortunately, the job was only half done, meaning enough to give cause for the German people to rally to gain vengeance, but not enough to actually cripple their ability to recover, and grow stronger than before. The results were, shall we say, [[WorldWarII unfortunate]].

**I'm pretty sure Emily hated the popular kids more for how they outright abused her friends than how they treated her (with her hatred of the popular girls being a 'you could help so much more than you hurt if you only gave a damn'
**Watching the end of the movie gives the impression that at least Emily and the guy in the Scarecrow costume were in it to commit suicide more than anything

* Invoked in ''Film/SpacedInvaders'' when much-abused nerd Vern, upgraded to a cyborg and under mind control by the Martians, uses their technology to create the giant irrigation machine he's always dreamed of, and with it destroy "butthead" [[{{Jerkass}} Klembecker's]] car in revenge for years of bullying. When the Martians set him free he retains his newfound confidence, and steals Klembecker's date for good measure.

** And then subverted, as the vote to leave the EU has resulted in [[DidNotThinkThisThrough economic downturn, loss of jobs, scientists and nurses leaving in droves, billions of investments/funding lost, and a hung parliament.]] It's the EU that's laughing now.

* Music/JessieJ's ''Who's Laughing Now'' was written in response to those who bullied or put her down when she was younger who wanted to know her once she gained fame. Part of the bridge features these lyrics:
-->''Oh, so you think you know me now\\
Have you forgotten how\\
You would make me feel\\
When you dragged my spirit down?''

* Wrestling/JimCornette was initially just a photographer selling his work at Jarrett family Continental Wrestling Association shows. One day he asked his mother, who also sold merchandise in the area, for more money so he could become a manager, an aspiration that earned him endless mocking from the likes of Bill Dundee and Wrestling/JerryLawler, derision from what wrestlers would give him a chance and lots of jeering from the fans. Laughed out of CWA, Cornette went to Mid-South, found Dennis Condrey and Bobby Eaton, then put together one of the greatest tag teams of all time, Wrestling/TheMidnightExpress, who helped him get back at the fans by antagonizing popular acts like Magnum TA, The Street People, Wrestling/TheLegionOfDoom and, [[ArchEnemy of course]], Wrestling/TheRockNRollExpress. He'd also manage the likes The Grappler, Wrestling/BigVanVader, The Heavenly Bodies and The Head Hunters against former managerial clients who spurned him, lead his [[Wrestling/SmokeyMountainWrestling own promotion]] in an invasion of Wrestling/{{WCW}} and the NWA itself against the WWF, which resulted in the oft overlooked skirt wearing Head Bangers being trust into stardom.
