** [[TheCasanova Barney]] slapped by women he's been hitting on with no explanation until he learned from Lily that there's a blonde woman who had been telling his targets not to trust Barney. This prompt Barney and the rest of the gang for an absurd and nonsensical guessing game on "who's that woman that Barney scorned" and at Lily's urging, Barney has to apologize to her. Though they got the identity wrong at the end of the episode, a few episodes revealed that it's Abby (played by Creator/BritneySpears) who had been warning women about Barney.

* In ''Zan Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', Nozomu Itoshiki coldly "dumped" one of his students who mistakenly thought he had spent a nice, charming, romantic day at the beach with her a week before. The whole situation arose out of Zetsubou-sensei's paranoia of getting caught in just such a compromising situation with one (or all) of his young lady students: he used a body-double to avoid being the recipient of such unwanted attention, and the body-double proceeded not only to engage in uncharacteristic acts of charity but charmed the pants off of the cute Abiru Kobushi. A week later, when she approaches him at a festival for a little sweet "together time," he runs for it, leaving her in the dust. Poor Abiru is probably used to that sort of thing by now.
** In the next episode, she participates in his murder along with Chiri and other female students of the class. He gets better, though.
*** And at the end of the episode she has "caught" him again with her bandages. No harm, no foul, I guess.
* Kaede Fuyou in ''VisualNovel/{{SHUFFLE}}!'', a sweet [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Unlucky Childhood Friend]] [[{{Yandere}} with hidden psychological problems coming from years ago]] who also snaps on her GenkiGirl love rival and sempai, Asa Shigure. Subverted, since she actually sorta makes peace with Asa later.
* Kyoko from ''Manga/SkipBeat'' is a mild version, not acting directly against to the man who despised her, but instead building herself into a position where she can humiliate him more than anything she can do directly.
* The point of ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'', a {{Deconstruction}} of the MarryThemAll solution to a HaremGenre situation. Word to the wise: if you've got a Harem, just pick one.
** If you guys are curious about what that meant... just watch the GrandFinale of the anime series. Or play the game and get the endings [[spoiler: where Kotonoha either jumps to her death in front of Makoto and Sekai or uses a saw to murder Sekai. Or when Sekai kills Makoto herself.]]
** [[spoiler:The reason why Sekai killed Makoto in the anime. Not only did he suggest that she get an abortion for their "baby", but he told her to go to a hospital that ''Kotonoha'' recommended. While she's stabbing him to death, she yells at him for thinking of his and Kotonoha's happiness.]]
* In ''Manga/ElfenLied'', look at what happens to Kouta when he lies to Lucy...
* Sakurako Sanjou from ''Manga/HanaYoriDango''. Because Domyouji made her life Hell as a child, she pulls off quite the revenge plot that includes plastic surgery, seducing him, almost killing his PluckyGirl of a love interest, etc. Sheeesh.
* Genderflipped in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''. Billy Katagiri took the departure of his girlfriend Lisa Kujoh [[spoiler: aka Sumeragi Lee Noriega]] well in the second season ''very'' poorly. [[spoiler: He got better, though]]
** Also, when Louise Halevy learned that [[spoiler: her former boyfriend Saji was in the 00 Raiser fighter during a skirmish]], her reaction was... bleak. All indications are that she's resolved to ''kill'' him at this point. [[spoiler: And she got better, too, but it was pretty close there for a minute.]]



* ''Manga/ZatchBell'' gives us Penny who was madly in love with the title character and believed herself to be his true love. When Zatch failed to recognize her (due to his memory loss), she snapped and vowed to burn his book if it's the last thing she does.
* When female Manga/{{Ranma|OneHalf}} discovers that Ryoga (that had accidentally hit Ranma with a love rod) doesn't love him back, he transforms himself into a guy and starts to beat the crap out of Ryoga. Normally Ryoga is as equally skilled in Martial Arts as Ranma, but this time Ranma was in such a rage that Ryoga was forced to surrender...
* Rumic Theatre's ''The Laughing Target''. Wow, that was a SCARY one.
* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. CuteBruiser Henrietta, who has a major BigBrotherAttraction towards her [[TheHandler handler]] Guiseppe, recreates the incident where one of the other cyborg girls killed her own handler. This is chillingly summed up as: "She was making a subconscious threat -- ''[[IfICantHaveYou if you don't love me, I'll kill you]]''."
** And other example from ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' is the sequel IL Teatrino [[spoiler: where Triela loses during one-on-one combat for the first time against the boy assassin Pinocchio - failing her mission as a result. Through most of the series, Triela can't think of nothing else but to get revenge against Pinocchio. She finally gets the chance and kills him. But she feels empty, afterwards, realizing she might have killed a kindred spirit.]]



* ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'': Keima's mother when she thinks her husband is cheating on her, while [[PrettyFreeloader Elsee]] is actually just making it up. HilarityEnsues.
** "[[BewareTheNiceOnes She used to run with some kind of biker gang]]."
** [[spoiler: Chihiro]] appears to act like one after [[spoiler: Keima dumps her in a very harsh way because she isn't a goddess host]] by [[spoiler: telling Ayumi about his conquest plot at worst possible moment out of either spite or misplaced concern]]. However, [[spoiler: it's revealed this is actually a ruse by her to get Ayumi to stop worrying about how Chihiro feels and focus exclusively on Keima as well as an attempt to make Keima act honestly.]]
* Haman Karn from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Mobile Suit Z Gundam]]'' effectively defines this trope. It is revealed that she had been in a relationship with [[spoiler: Char Aznable, a.k.a. Lt. Quattro]] in the past, the specifics of which are not provided. Whether there was an actual relationship between them or if she was just infatuated and had her hopes dashed, the whole (deleted) affair left her feeling jilted and has given her a few [[{{Yandere}} personality quirks]], which manifest themselves rather prominently when she [[DuelToTheDeath gives him her]] [[IfICantHaveYou ultimatum]]. It comes as a crushing disappointment to her when he [[FakingTheDead refuses to capitulate]], and much to the detriment of the general public, she's [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen not really particular about whom she subjects to her]] [[ColonyDrop wrath]].
* ''Ichinensei Ni Nacchattara'': Iori's mom is still mad enough as it is about her former husband having cheated on her (leading to their divorce). When Iori [[spoiler:claims to be his love child after she figures out [[GenderBender his true identity]]]], she's on the phone with a lawyer in ''seconds''.

* In ''Manga/ElfenLied'', look at what happens to Kouta when he lies to Lucy...
* When Gayle hunted down Motoko in PoweredArmor in ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', he managed to shoot away her left arm and nearly succeeded in killing her. She was saved at the last moment when Saito and Paz showed up with a .50 caliber anti-material tank rifle loaded with high-velocity ammo. Two shots were all it took to knock Gayle over and free her. As soon as she stood up, she ordered Saito to hand over the weapon right away, where she climbed up on top of Gayle and pointed the gun right at the cockpit armor plating. At that point, Motoko went into an UnstoppableRage shown beautifully through TranquilFury. Gayle was already quaking in fear, asking her to open the hatch so he could properly surrender. ''[[ShortRangeLongRangeWeapon Motoko unloaded a full clip at point blank right into the cockpit armor plating]]'', not stopping until she had no ammo left. At that point, the armor had been dented so far in that the pressure was suffocating Gayle inside. He was begging for her to open the cockpit, because he couldn't breathe. [[CruelMercy She allowed him to live so that he would forever REGRET hunting her down.]]
** A very straight example of this is the third OVA of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellArise" where Motoko dated a doctor who retrofitted her cybernetic legs. [[spoiler:Except that the doctor is a terrorist and is aware of Motoko's occupation and the legs that he retrofitted contained explosives]].

in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' episode "April Moon": Dr. Corso provided weaponized cyborg upgrades "Mother's Day", Mom led a robot rebellion which her sons put down to a criminal gang who had [[IHaveYourWife been holding his wife hostage]]. It turned out that she was in on it and was cheating on him with the gang leader. In remaining ill effects of this trope,
--->'''Walt:''' Hell hath no fury like
the final scene, the gang leader (who doesn't know that the doctor found out the truth) comes vast robot armies of a woman scorned!
* Lila becomes this
in for [[NightmareFuel/BatmanBeyond more surgery]]....
* This trope is very common
Helga's dream in the DCAU (which is unsurprising ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' episode "Married". She keeps trying to win Arnold back despite Arnold being married to Helga, going as far as to becoming a terrorist and kidnapping Arnold.
* When the controls for the [[EmotionBomb Moodulators]] in the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' episode "Emotion Sickness" were destroyed, they left Kim and Shego in an unstoppable angry state, just moments after Ron and Drakken had "abandoned" them (i.e. Ron gave Kim a LetsJustBeFriends talk; Drakken left Shego in the middle of a Moodulator-induced crying jag). This led to [[ActionGirl Kim]] and [[DarkActionGirl Shego]] [[DisproportionateRetribution taking out their rage]] on Ron and Drakken, respectively... [[OhCrap much to their alarm]]
considering the source material). For example, the penultimate episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' (and its accompanying DVD commentary) imply that [[spoiler:Tala made sure that Darkseid was revived instead of Braniac, as one final "screw you" to Lex]].
* The Scotsman's wife in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. She's even bigger and more violent than he is, and she's pretty much the only thing in the whole world he's genuinely afraid of. True enough, in her introduction, an evil celtic deity who has kidnapped her makes the mistake of calling her fat, which results in her [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu slugging said deity in the gut]] and [[CurbStompBattle easily and brutally destroying]] [[OneManArmy the huge army]] of {{Mooks}} that
how utterly outclassed they were just beforehand giving both [[{{Badass}} the Scotsman and the titular protagonist]] trouble.in fighting ability.

-->'''Linus:''' You've heard about fury in a woman scorned, haven't you?
