** John himself spends an entire episode pursuing [[DirtyCop Officer Simmons]], following the previous episode when Simmon fatally shot [[FriendOnTheForce Detective Carter]], all while being severely injured himself. He torches a car with people inside, breaks a man's legs and leaves him hanging, then [[OneManArmy single-handedly neutralizes an entire squad of U.S. Marshalls]] to get to the only person who knows Simmons' location, and [[ToThePain promises torture]] if the information isn't given.

* ''StepByStep'': The Season 7 episode "Phoney Business," where Frank finds out that the suntan lotion commercial daughter Al was starring was actually taped for a phone sex hotline. Frank asks Rich to tell him what he knows about the commercial (after which he threatens Rich if he's known to ever watch the commercial again) ... after which he confronts the commercial's corrupt advertising salesman. When the salesman tries to bluff his way out of the situation, Frank [[PapaWolf goes berserk]], grabbing the producer by his collar and holding him three-fourths of the way out the window to force him to talk. Frank then rips apart the office to find the original master tape, which he then threatens to show to the producer's boss unless he immediately asks the TV stations to kill the commercial then adds afterward that if he is ever known to be producing smutty commercials again involving teenaged girls, he'll be back and it won't be good. In the postscript, Al is forgiven (and learns a lesson about reading the fine print, doing a background check, etc.), but it is implied that big brother J.T. who got Al the job in the first place has an angry father to look forward to when he gets home.

* ''TheWire'' does this twice, both times with Omar -- the usual culprit behind the few over-the-top tropes in the series. The first time is played straight, with [[spoiler:Omar shaking up the entire Barksdale organization as revenge for the murder of his boyfriend, with Avon Barksdale himself narrowly escaping by luck alone]]. The second time can be seen as a subversion, as [[spoiler:the audience goes into the season expecting Omar to [[BadassLongcoat work his usual magic]] on the people who killed his friend, but he ends up failing miserably and [[DroppedABridgeOnHim dying in a spectacularly pointless and meaningless fashion]].]]

* In season 1, episode three of TheBorgias, [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Cesare]] promises [[BigBrotherAttraction Lucrezia]] that, should her husband prove ungallant, Cesare will cut his heart out with a dinner knife and serve it to her. Her husband, Giovanni Sforza, proves [[MaritalRapeLicense very ungallant]]. The rest of the season passes. Lucrezia's marriage is annulled. We think Cesare's just gonna let it pass. [[spoiler:But in the episode "The Choice", Cesare essentially [[GuttedLikeAFish rips Sforza open from waistline to chest, carving him up like a Thanksgiving turkey]]. He can't find a heart, apparently, but he does give Lucrezia the knife.]]

** A truly scary one occurs after [[spoiler: Diane (ex-wife #3)]] is [[BoomHeadshot sniped]] by [[spoiler: Sergei Mishnev]] in a way that deliberately mimics the aforementioned [[spoiler: Caitlin Todd]]. Gibbs tracks him down to his hiding place, shoots his way through his {{Mooks}}, and gives him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. Unfortunately for Gibbs, a previously unnoticed mook gives him a TapOnTheHead; by the time Gibbs wakes up, [[spoiler: Sergei]] has escaped.

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' once parodied Disney's recent (for 2015) trend of making live-action remakes of their animated movies by reimagining ''{{Film/Bambi}}'' as one of these. Creator/DwayneJohnson (the episode's host) played the title character.

* ''Series/TwentyFour'': Jack's daughter escapes, and the villains still want to lure Jack in, so they have TheMole tell him that his daughter's body had been found. [[WhatAnIdiot Seriously. Bad. Idea.]] Jack comes in, all right -- ''[[GunsAkimbo both guns blazing]]'' -- and [[UnstoppableRage doesn't leave a single one alive]], including the (surrendering) BigBad. We all know about the MamaBear, but don't mess with a PapaWolf, either. Especially not one that's having the longest day of his life (well, one of the several longest days of his life, anyway).
