* '''Deconstructed''': Bob spends all his money and loses his job, friends, and credibility trying to get his disproportionate retribution. He probably fails, too, since the RubeGoldbergDevice of a plot is likely to implode. ''And'' even if he succeeds, BeingEvilSucks and he realizes it cost him more than it was worth.

Added DiffLines:

** Those around Bob see his attempts in revenge for something small as being petty and immature. Authority figures see him as unhinged for the extent he is willing to go for revenge and suggest he be institutionalized.

Added DiffLines:

** Bob has serious repressed anger from being wronged in a way that ''does'' merit his over-the-top vengeance, and Alice just happened to be the straw that broke the camel's back.
** Based on Machiavelli's "People should either be caressed or crushed" and to avoid "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind", Bob carries out a very potent revenge on his target to fully neutralize them, as [[ItsAllAboutMe said target is the kind to violently retaliate when properly punished]].

** Getting fired caused a chain of events: Bob's wife leaving him, getting evicted, losing all his money, and the death of his beloved cat. Bob believes that ruining Alice's life is justified by this



** He realizes how insane this plan is after he executes it, then it comes to bite him in the ass.

* '''Played For Drama''': This all results from a serious anger problem and a lack of understanding of consequences and what is proportionate; every time his little brother, sister, or son is picked on, a building goes down.
** Or, Bob intended to only break Alice's knee, but Bob was unaware that Alice was a hemophiliac, leading her to bleed uncontrollably and die, forcing Bob to run, as he is now a murderer.
