** All the Stark children have a strong desire for revenge against those who harmed their family and their home. Arya in partivular has an ever-expanding kill list of people who have wronged her, her family or her friends, and of those who she sees as particularly evil. Eventually Sansa and Jon succeed in extracting this from the Boltons, who they wipe out forever with the death of Ramsay Bolton, while Arya murders "Lame" Lothar Frey, "Black" Walder Rivers and Lord Walder Frey; the latter was the last surviving conspirator for the Red Wedding and the former two murdered Talisa and Catelyn.

* Set up but ultimately subverted in a ''Series/GameOfThrones'' episode. After finding his new friends murdered by members of the Brotherhood Without Banners, Sandor Clegane seizes an axe and starts hunting them down... only to find that the murderers have already been captured by the rest of the Brotherhood and were about to be hanged as punishment. They offer Clegane the opportunity to kill one personally as vengeance, but he's already so disappointed by the anticlimactic situation that he takes little satisfaction in the act itself.

** The three-part finale of Series 9 is centred in part around this with regards to the Doctor. Before his companion, Clara, is KilledOffForReal, she spends her final minutes consoling the Doctor in part to stop him from going on a rampage after he begins to threaten this to those responsible for her imminent death. She is only partially successful.

** The Master has gotten a short, but very memorable one, near the end of second part of "The End of Time". Earlier, it was discovered the 'sound of drums' in his head which drove him ''insane'' since he was 8 was actually a beacon for the trapped Time Lords to try and break the Time Lock. After the Doctor TakesAThirdOption to stop the return of Gallifrey and the Time Lords, the Master repays his old friend and wreaks vengeance against Rassilon for having been the cause of the mental torment since childhood, having shot ''blasts at energy'' at him.

The next time we see The Master or Rassilon, they have both regenerated, implying that [[MutualKill they killed each other]] in the aforementioned encounter.

** 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.
