** The Byzantines were also on the receiving end of this when they tried to pull a fast one on the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan_Company Grand Catalan Company]] and its capable, lawless, and beloved commander Roger de Flor. They hired the company to fight the Turks. The Catalans did a good job of it, at the same time plundering Byzantine territory and subjects. The Byzantines decided to rid themselves of these "Western Barbarians" by setting _another_ group of mercenaries on them, the Alans. The Alans killed Roger de Flor but left most of the Grand Company in one piece. Bad move. The enraged Catalans conquered Thessaly and Greece and ruled their own kingdom until 1390.

* The Barbary Pirates demanded tribute from a certain [[YanksWithTanks obscure new nation]] on the grounds that NobodyEverComplainedBefore. The result was that the [[ThisMeansWar US Navy]] came after them and spent several years beating on them. During the WarOf1812 the Barbary Pirates went back to their old tricks and afterwards the US Navy returned and gave them another whaling.[[note]]This is where "the shores of Tripoli" in the [[SemperFi Marine Corps]] anthem comes from being the place where the Corps saw its first action overseas and kicked pirate ass.[[/note]] At this the British decided that the colonials had a pretty good idea going, peace having broken out in Europe. So they sent the [[OhCrap Royal Navy]] after them. Finally after all that was done, the French simply landed and conquered the whole area.

* [[AwesomeMcCoolName Buford Pusser]] was a sheriff in Tennessee who was riding with his wife to a call when a car pulled up and fired on them, killing her and critically wounding him. He [[OneManArmy single-handedly killed every man]] and then went on to wage a war on moonshining, illegal gambling, and several other criminal activities in his county before dying in a car accident.

This man was so awesome that not [[WalkingTall1973 one,]] but ''[[WalkingTall2004 two]]'' movies were made based on his story, the second of which starred DwayneJohnson.

* As referred to above under Film, after the "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral", Wyatt Earp hunted down and killed most of the Clanton gang. Not because of the shootout; because three weeks later, Ike's boys shot and killed Wyatt's brother Morgan, while he was playing billiards. And did it from behind, to boot. The "Gunfight" was just business for Wyatt, due to his being town marshal and the Clantons refusing to abide by the local "no guns inside the deadline" ordinance. ''Backshooting his brother made it personal''.

** During the [[ThePunicWars Second Punic Wars]], the Greek city-states of Sicily, allied with Rome, switched sides after [[CurbStompBattle the Carthaginian triumph at Cannae]]. Rome replied sending against them the survivors of Cannae led by their best general, Marcellus, who razed two cities and then started besieging Syracuse while his troops sent raiding parties. The Sicilians were not impressed, especially as the Romans were failing against Syracuse's walls and Archimedes' inventions... And then the Romans broke through, [[RapePillageAndBurn sacked and demolished the city, and slaughtered anyone but those who could be useful, raped and/or enslaved (and some of those cathegories too, as Archimedes was mistaken for an old fool and killed)]]. Sicily became a Roman province as soon as the other city-states were informed of what had just happend;

* The UsefulNotes/ByzantineEmpire was the continuation of the eastern half of the Roman Empire, and just like their colleagues in the west you provoked them at your own peril. Best shown by what happened in the last Roman-Persian War: thanks to the Byzantine being weakened by infighting, attacks from Bulgars and Avars and starting the war under Phocas, the ''worst'' of the Byzantine emperors, the Persians of the Sassanid dynasty were overrunning the Byzantine empire, the situation being so bad that Heraclius, who had become emperor after personally killing Phocas, was considering moving the capital to Carthage to rule on the oversea territories only when Persian emperor Khosrau II sent him a most offensive letter[[note]]"Khosrau, greatest of Gods, and master of the earth, to Heraclius, his vile and insensate slave. Why do you still refuse to submit to our rule, and call yourself a king? Have I not destroyed the Greeks? You say that you trust in your God. Why has he not delivered out of my hand Caesarea, Jerusalem, and Alexandria? And shall I not also destroy Constantinople? But I will pardon your faults if you submit to me, and come hither with your wife and children; and I will give you lands, vineyards, and olive groves, and look upon you with a kindly aspect. Do not deceive yourself with vain hope in that Christ, who was not able to save himself from the Jews, who killed him by nailing him to a cross. Even if you take refuge in the depths of the sea, I will stretch out my hand and take you, whether you will or no."[[/note]], at which point the ''entire'' population of the Byzantine Empire became willing to all sacrifices to make the Persians pay, and they did: when the Persians surrendered, the frontier was back where it was at the start of the war, the Persian military was barely holding on, a Byzantine army led personally by Heraclius had stopped short of the Persian capital, Khosrau had been assassinated and replaced by one of his least favourite sons, and the death of the latter plunged the Persian Empire into civil war.

* Do you remember the Khwarezmian Empire? No? [[AppealToObscurity There's a good reason for that]]. Mainly because Genghis Khan ''[[KillEmAll literally wiped the entire civilization out of existence.]]'' The reason? Because one of the local governors harassed and even killed some of Genghis Khan's emissaries. When he was captured, that particular governor allegedly had [[KarmicDeath molten silver poured into his eyes and mouth]].
