* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'', soon-to-become pacifist Relena tries to shoot Lady Une, the woman who killed her father (or, at least, the man who cared for her like a father). She fails. The next time the two meet, Lady Une actually ''offers'' Relena a gun to take her long-awaited revenge with, and Relena ''pushes it away'', because ending the vicious cycle of bloody retribution was more important to her, in the end.

* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'': Neo-Canada's fighter, former space cop Andrew Graham, entered the Gundam Fight entirely because he found out that Neo-Russia's fighter was the space pirate Argo Gulsky, who some years ago killed Andrew's new wife Norma by ramming their spaceship then [[ThrownOutTheAirlock throwing her into space]]. [[spoiler:Except that's not true; the collision was an accident, and Argo tried to save Norma but couldn't reach her in time and has been wracked with remorse ever since. When Andrew learns the truth, he returns the favor by TakingTheBullet for Argo.]]

** [[ItWasHisSled Famously]] {{subverted}} with Darth Vader's reveal: "[[strike:[[BeamMeUpScotty Luke,]]]] [[LittleNo No.]] [[LukeIAmYourFather ''I'']] [[LukeIAmYourFather am your father.]]" And now ''that's'' a [[UndeadHorseTrope cliché]]. This was the original plot of ''Star Wars'' before ''Empire Strikes Back'', where Vader and Anakin Skywalker were indeed two separate people and the former killed the latter, and Anakin would guide his son as a spirit. After Vader defeated Luke on Bespin, Vader inquired what Kenobi told Luke about his father, Luke said "He told me enough. He told me ''you'' killed him." Then Vader delivers his [[LukeIAmYourFather famous line]]. And double subverted decades later, when the prequel trilogy revealed how Vader's misdeeds are responsible for Luke's ''mother's'' death.

* The [[UsefulNotes/{{Cambodia}} Khmer]] [[PolPot Rouge]] seemed to be aware of this trope. When they executed someone, they also made sure to kill their children afterwards. The reason: "to stop them growing up and taking revenge for their parents' deaths". During their reign, Cambodia lost a third of its population, and it's concievable that, had they held on for another decade, [[MayorOfAGhostTown they'd have no population left.]]
