* ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'': Gordon Freeman enters the enemy base, alone, at the end of the game. [[spoiler:All his weapons are taken from him, except for the Gravity Gun, which becomes ultra-powered and capable of even grabbing enemy soldiers. All his friends have been captured. The entire end-game segment lets the player go berserk on the enemy with the Gravity Gun, torturing and maiming them in every way imaginable, while Dr. Breen, his old supervisor, calls him worthless.]]

** A prominent example in the series' backstory occurred when the [[OurElvesAreBetter Falmer (Snow Elves)]] slaughtered and burnt the ([[UnreliableExpositor supposedly]] [[WrittenByTheWinners peaceful]]) Atmoran ([[{{Precursors}} proto-Nord]]) city of Saarthal. [[FounderOfTheKingdom Ysgramor]] and his sons returned to Atmora to raise an army. Gathering [[BadassArmy 500 of Atmora's greatest warriors]], they returned and nearly drove the Falmer to ''[[FinalSolution extinction]]''.

Later, Ysgramor's PapaWolf traits showed up once again when his son, Yngol, was taken by the "sea ghosts". Ysgramor became aware of this and demanded the ghosts set him free; in response, the ghosts summoned a terrible storm. Ysgramor fearlessly strode into it and defeated each of the ghosts, only to find Yngol and his clan dead. Filled with grief, he vented his rage on 24 of the fiercest monsters in Skyrim, slaying them all in honor of his kin. He then ordered a great barrow to be dug for Yngol and his clansmen's resting place.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': After Tamamo no Mae [[TheLostLenore loses his wife]], he spent roughly a decade raising his twin children until they too are slain by an ''onmyōji''. The event pushed him through the DespairEventHorizon and he is now still ''burning down entire villages'' in search of the murderer.

** Another backstory example comes from Pelinal Whitestrake, the [[LongDeadBadass legendary 1st Era hero]] of mankind/[[FantasticRacism racist]] [[TheBerserker berserker]]. Believed to have been a [[EternalHero Shezarrine]], [[GodInHumanForm physical incarnations]] of the spirit of the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] Lorkhan (known to the Imperials as "[[IHaveManyNames Shezarr]]"), Pelinal came to [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Alessia]] to serve as her [[PhysicalGod divine champion]] in the war against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]]. Pelinal would fly into fits of UnstoppableRage (''mostly'' directed at the Ayleids) during which he [[BloodSplatteredWarrior would be stained with their blood]] and [[PaintTheTownRed left so much carnage in his wake]] that Kyne, one of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]], would have to [[CueTheRain send in her rain]] to cleanse Ayleid forts and village before they could be used by Alessia's forces. In particular, when Huna, a grain-slave raised to a hoplite by Pelinal, was killed by the arrow of an Ayleid king, Pelinal went so berserk that he not only slew the Ayleids in the kingdom responsible, but ''erased their lands from the world''. The [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]] were so disgusted with his actions that they ''nearly left the world'' if not for Alessia making sacrifices to regain their favor.

* A particularly brutal [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] of this trope is present in ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption''. [[spoiler:The protagonist John is shot and killed in the ending by the corrupt cop Edgar Ross, prompting his grown-up son Jack on one of these for the game's epilogue. Here's where the deconstruction comes in: before John's death, Jack was a kind-hearted, idealistic young man with dreams of becoming a writer. Afterwards, Jack becomes a jaded gunslinger outlaw on the run from the government, drifting from place to place with his former life in ruins. While he eventually succeeds in getting revenge on Ross, it doesn't matter in the end, because Ross is remembered as a hero, John is remembered as a brutal criminal who was brought to justice, and Jack has to spend the rest of his days as a depressed, wandering loner, trapped in a gun-slinging lifestyle that is quickly dying out]]. [[TearJerker Damnit]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Insaniquarium}}'', the reson Itchy the swordfish is so eager to kill the aliens is that all his friends were once devoured by one of them. Now he wants them all '''dead'''.

* ''VideoGame/HauntingStarringPolterguy'': Poltergeist Polterguy's motivation is to remorselessly scare Vito and his family out of their house because Vito's company produced crappy skateboards (Polterguy died riding one of these). He is completely merciless with them.

* ''AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'': Gives us a 3 person variant when the enemy forces finally manage to kill off [[spoiler: Chopper]]. The enemy pilots get to savour a few seconds of relieved cheering mainly along the lines of "see, they're not invincible after all!"... At which point you and the rest of the squadron proceed to unleash pure hell upon every enemy unit in sight as payback. By the time the mission's over, the few surviving opponents are almost literally running away crying for their mommies. It gets to the point that, if you're flying particularly well in that mission, by the time reinforcements arrive, they may have ''nothing to fight''.
