** In ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', several [[OOCisSeriousBusiness out of character]] moments make it clear early on that Picard views the situation [[TranquilFury as an opportunity]] to launch his RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the Borg. Fans of TNG, who are used to the rational, diplomatic, compassionate Jean-Luc Picard, are shocked to see him [[MercyKill shoot]] a partially assimilated crewman who was begging for help, and show near-psychotic rage in machine-gunning two drones. Lily actually has to stop him from [[NoKillLikeOverkill beating the corpses]] with the butt of his rifle.

* ''Franchise/TheCrow'' franchise is built around spirits of the dead who cannot rest in the afterlife until they return as an unstoppable revenant and kill those responsible for their and loved ones' deaths. The original creator of the comic series, James O'Barr, conceived of the idea out of his own desires to get revenge on the drunk driver responsible for the death of his fiance. He later regretted making revenge so appealing.

* The 2010 Korean film ''Film/ISawTheDevil'' is in some ways a deconstruction of the protagonists of these sort of films and their PayEvilUntoEvil revenge plots. TheHero is a cop whose fiance is murdered by a sadistic serial killer. After discovering the identity of the killer, after [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique brutally torturing three possible suspects who are ultimately innocent of the crime]], he decides to make the killer's life a living hell following him around beating him up, letting him go and then beating him up again later hoping to make the man suffer just as much as he has. This is all well and good except that along the way several innocent people are harmed because of the hero's refusal to just kill the villain and the killer ultimately snaps [[TheDogBitesBack and proceeds to torture or kill the hero's loved ones]]. This in turn leads to [[spoiler: [[MoralEventHorizon the hero making sure the killer dies in front of his innocent parents and son]] which ultimately brings the hero absolutely no solace and arguably makes him as much of a monster as the villain.]]

** In the first film, Liam Neeson warns: "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."

* Life has not been good to ex-hitman Film/JohnWick. His beloved wife Helen has died of a terminal illness, but he can't just shoot cancer to take the edge off. However, Helen has left him an adorable puppy in her absence and he's still got his cool car, so it could be worse. Unfortunately, the asshole son of a mob boss jacks the car and kills his dog out of spite, so John finally snaps and ends up waging a one man war against an influential crime syndicate just to put that spoiled brat in the ground.
