* In the ''TokyoMewMew'' anime is a mini-arc, just before the climax, where Ryou commands the titular {{Magical Girl}}s against the GiantMook that killed his parents. This was nowhere in the manga.

* ''SamuraiDeeperKyo'' averts/subverts this with Yuya, who, after a four-year hunt for the murderer of her father figure--her [[NotBloodSiblings brother Nozomu]]--discovers [[spoiler:that Kyoshiro was the one who killed him. She doesn't take her revenge, but she doesn't forgive him, either.]]

* A lot of the plot in ''VinlandSaga'' is derived from Thorfinn's quest to avenge his father's murder by Askeladd, who is fully aware of Thorfinn's grudge and uses it to his advantage on multiple occassions. [[spoiler:It's eventually subverted; Askeladd is killed by Canute and Thorfinn refuses to finish him off.]] Thorfinn later has a HeelRealization when he recalls the many men he killed over the years and wonders how many of them were brothers, fathers, or sons of other people. It's one of the reasons he decides to never kill again.

* The Kaitou Kid of Manga/MagicKaito and Manga/DetectiveConan has this as his driving motivation once he finds out that his father was murdered. His motives for being a PhantomThief shift away from 'having fun' toward 'bringing ''them'' out into the light,' and we might know more about all of that if his series was more than 28 chapters long. (His Manga/DetectiveConan [[OnlySixFaces counterpart]] is after ''his'' evil organization because they killed ''[[WhodunnitToMe him]]'', instead.)

* In the days of TheWildWest TheGunslinger John Wesley Hardin was famed for his bloodthirstiness and had killed two dozen or so men. Even so he ended up being released from prison because his term was up and was free to wander about doing mischief (yeah, that's TheGovernment for you). The brother of one man he had killed slipped up to him and [[CombatPragmatist shot him]] InTheBack. This VigilanteMan was given a pardon from the governor because the governor thought, with a [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem lack of lawfulness]] but not completely without logic, that John Wesley Hardin "needed killin".\\\
This wasn't necessarily extralegal. Many states used to have "needed killin'" laws, a sort of area-effect "self defense" out (in fact this is where the term "outlaw" came from: such people were considered to be "outside the law" therefore people could do anything to them with impunity). It's not uncommon now for people to (jokingly or not) lament the fact that such laws no longer exist, particularly when somebody is perceived as having gotten away with a particularly vile crime.

* In ''BaldursGate'' you have to avenge the death of your foster-father, Gorion. Along the way, you find out that your real father is [[spoiler:Bhaal, the now-dead god of murder, and that your foster-father's killer is one of your divine half-brothers]]. Exactly who kills him depends kind of which of your party members puts down the killing blow, but your party kills him so it counts.

* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', just as Tony and Steve [[HopeSpot appear to be reconciling]] at the end, it's revealed in a ''very'' graphic video that a brainwashed [[spoiler: Bucky]] was responsible for his parents' murders. Then it's also revealed that Steve had known about it for two years and never told Tony, which the latter [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out on.]] To the surprise of nobody, seeing his parents beaten and strangled to death while the physical murderer stands only feet away sends [[spoiler: Tony]] into [[BerserkButton an explosive rage.]]
-->'''Tony:''' [[WhamLine You killed my mom.]]

* Averted by Son Goku from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' when he can't bring it over himself to kill Frieza, who not only killed his father, but also almost extinguished his entire race. Played straight, however with Vegeta [[LikeFatherLikeSon and his son]] Trunks.
** Played straight with Piccolo, who was literally born to hate and kill Goku. His father Piccolo Daimaou created him moments after Goku dealt him a fatal blow and passed on his grudge to his newborn son. Piccolo actually does manage to kill Goku during their [[EnemyMine teamup]] against Raditz when Goku holds Raditz in place long enough for Piccolo to hit them both with his new super move. Piccolo mellows out considerably afterwards since he felt no satisfaction from killing Goku. He just couldn't keep hating Goku after seeing him pull off such a badass HeroicSacrifice. Bonding with Goku's son Gohan while training him cemented the end of Piccolo's grudge.

* In ''Film/{{The Phantom|1996}}'', TheDragon Quill is the man who killed the previous Phantom. He spends much of the movie disturbed by the discovery that the man he killed is apparently still in business. Kit explains the truth to him at the onset of their inevitable final duel.

* ''Film/IronMan2'': The main reason Vanko has a beef with Stark -- though technically, it's "your father had my father deported and left to rot in Siberia." Being deported is what caused Vanko's father to develop a destructive drinking habit, which eventually killed him.
** However, unusually for this trope, his DynamicEntry doesn't include the traditional "MyNameIsInigoMontoya. [Insert grievance here]" announcement, and he [[NoNonsenseNemesis immediately starts using lethal attacks]]. Had they been successful, Tony would have died without having any idea who his killer was or why he killed him. This rather unconventional approach underlines Vanko's role as TheQuietOne.

* O-Ren from the ''Film/KillBill'' films witnessed her parents' murders at the hands of the Yakuza, and went on to assassinate their boss, accusing and mocking him as he expired. Unusual in that taking vengeance set her on the path to villainy, not heroism... and she didn't bother waiting to grow up first, but lured the pedophile into bed and slaughtered him ''while still a child herself''.
** The Bride tries to avert this by avoiding killing Vernita Green in front of her young daughter Nikki, [[spoiler: but is ultimately double subverted as the child witnesses the death anyway]]. The Bride appears genuinely regretful about this, and explains to the child that she will understand if Nikki wants to try to continue the CycleOfRevenge when she is old enough.
