* When Bashkirian Airways Tupolev 154 and DHL cargo Boeing 757 [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2002_%C3%9Cberlingen_mid-air_collision collided into each other at Überlingen]], Swiss and German border 2002, 74 people were killed. Among those were wife and two kids of Ossetian architect Vitaly Kaloyev. The accident was due to flight control error (That's only partially true, there was the Basjirian's pilots failure to follow TCAS) Kaloyev hired a private investigator to find out the individual flight controller who had been at job at that fateful night. It turned out to be Danish man named Peter Nielsen. So [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitaly_Kaloyev Kaloyev tracked him down]], and ''stabbed him to death with a knife'' [[OhCrap in front of Nielsen's wife and three children.]] 24 February 2004.

* When Queen Boudicca's husband died, Rome decided to abandon all pretense of playing nice and annexed her kingdom. When she objected, they had her flogged and raped her daughters in front of her. Boudicca then rallied a massive army of rebel Celts and led a bloody crusade against the Romans occupying Britain. Before she was stopped, she sacked three of Britain's largest Roman cities, killing at least 70,000 civilians in the process. It required three entire Roman legions to finally bring her down.
** That is, the first legion that tried it found itself outnumbered fifty to one at least, so no surprise at the result there (all the infantry were wiped out, some of the cavalry and the senior officers escaped). Boudicca's last stand, the Battle of Watling Street, saw her faced by two legions, mustering about 5% of her own numbers. It was a complete CurbStompBattle, but not the way Boudicca was hoping.

* When Queen Boudicca's husband died, Rome decided the Roman moneylender Seneca called in a debt of 40,000,000 sesterces (a debt the Iceni neither agreed to abandon all pretense of playing nice and annexed her kingdom. When she objected, they nor wanted). The men sent in to collect this debt also had her Boudicca flogged and raped her two daughters in front of her. In response Boudicca then rallied a massive army of rebel Celts and led a bloody crusade against the Romans occupying Britain. Before she was stopped, she sacked massacred three of Britain's largest Roman cities, killing slaughtering at least 70,000 civilians in the process. It required three entire Roman legions to finally bring her down.

Boudicca's Boudica's last stand, battle, the Battle of Watling Street, saw her faced by two legions, mustering about 5% of her own numbers. It was a complete CurbStompBattle, but not the way Boudicca Boudica was hoping.hoping. The Romans completely cut her men to pieces, chased down those who tried to flee, and after the fight some of the roman soldiers butchered the families of the rebels (they were brought out to watch the expected victory from a safe distance). After Boudica's death, the Roman's forcibly relocated the remaining Iceni to a Romanized town and launched retaliatory attacks against the other tribes for good measure.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pancho_Villa Pancho Villa]] himself went on this trope after his war effort against a corrupt Mexican government was virtually starved by an US presidential ban of aid to his forces. He found himself so embittered that he raided a train and had its 18 US occupants stripped naked and executed. Villa later also lead 500 men to raid Columbus, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Columbus_(1916) New Mexico]] for supplies and not only attempted to look, but willingly attacked anyone on site with his men, setting homes on fire. Unfortunately for his men, they were beaten back with high losses. The US President and his people were not pleased, and sent a 4,800 man strong army to hunt him down, but never succeeded.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* 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''.
