* King Abdullah II of UsefulNotes/{{Jordan}}, also a career [[UsefulNotes/WarriorsOfDesertWinds military officer]], definitely qualifies. Near the end of 2016, ISIS captured a Jordanian pilot who was shot down during airstrikes against the group's capital in Syria, wanting to trade him for a woman imprisoned in the country for helping plan a suicide bombing in which 60 people died. After Jordan turned ISIS down, they burned the pilot alive and posted the video online. Abdullah was in Washington attending a meeting with a [[SemperFi US Marine]] when he found out what ISIS had done. According to the Marine, the King immediately launched into Creator/ClintEastwood's revenge speech from ''Film/{{Unforgiven}}'', and that his only concern is that he wouldn't have enough fuel and munitions to take out ISIS. When he returned to Jordan, he had the female prisoner ISIS wanted to exchange publicly hanged. That was followed by the execution of a man arrested for plotting to bring ISIS to the country. The King then went to the family of the murdered pilot to personally express condolences and promise revenge. Then came the first of a series of airstrikes against ISIS leadership. Reports out of Jordan indicated that the King himself flew the lead aircraft, though the government officially denied it.

* In March of 1944, Chindit George Cairns was involved in attack on a Japanese-held hill. When a Japanese officer hacked off his arm with a katana, he went berserk, killed him, grabbed the katana in his remaining arm, and sprinted up the hill, chopping any Japanese soldier anywhere near him. He left a trail of blood and dead and wounded Japanese until he fell over dead. From blood loss from his severed arm.

* When [[Series/CrocodileHunter Steve Irwin]] died, some Australians did not take his death well and condemned the stingrays, the creature that killed him (in self-defence). Thus, shortly after, several mutilated stingrays were found near some of Australian beaches. Irwin's friends took notice and condemned the mutilators, because Irwin wouldn't have wanted a retribution on those who caused his death. You know... [[MisaimedFandom the same animals that Steve Irwin dedicated his life to preserving]].

** And the burning fire of Soviet vengeance only got hotter when the Red Army discovered the real reason why the Nazis wanted Russia and the fate that awaited every Slavic had the Nazis won. With the discovery of Auschwitz, Nazi ideology of "Living Space", and the brutal tactic of the Hunger Plan. The Great Patriotic War became more about the Slavic peoples' fighting for the right to ''exist'' .

* After ''Kampfgruppe'' Peiper murdered a number of civilians and American prisoners of war (the "Malmedy Massacre") during the Battle of the Bulge, the U.S. Army made it part of their battle plan to destroy Joachim Peiper and his unit (a battlegroup of the 1st SS Panzer Division). Peiper ended up walking back in deep snow to the main German lines with no tanks and about 770 men remaining. But that was only the beginning. He and a number of his men were then tried after the war for the murders, convicted, and sentenced to death. The sentences were commuted, and Peiper was released from prison at the end of 1956. He moved to France in 1972, but when his identity was revealed in a local newspaper in 1976, his house was burned down with him in it. The case remains open to this day, as even the nationality of his killers (who called themselves "The Avengers") was unknown; Peiper had been accused of similar deeds in both Italy and Russia, generally involving burning down villages.

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariya_Oktyabrskaya Mariya Oktyabrskaya]] may be one of the Red Army's shining examples of this trope, when her husband was killed in action near Kiev in 1941 she enlisted and sold all her possessions to raise the 50,000 roubles needed to donate a tank to the army on one condition, they let her drive, the State Defence Committee agreed thinking it'd be good publicity. When she arrived at the battle of Smolensk in 1943 the other soldiers considered her a publicity stunt... until she started fighting, maneuvering her T-34, emblazoned with the words "[[CrusadingWidower Fighting Girlfriend]]", like a veteran. She destroyed many German machine gun and artillery positions and was the first of her brigade to breach the enemy positions. And [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/index.cgi?id=64071327108 that was only the beginning of her two-year campaign against the Nazis]], which would ultimately gain her the Gold Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union, the highest award for military bravery offered by the USSR.

* 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 UsefulNotes/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.
