* When Comicbook/SpiderMan faces Morlun, an enemy who has been sustaining his near-immortality for centuries by feeding on the life energy of people who have totemistic relationships with animals, and when he finally has him on the ropes, it's unclear whether he's about to cross the killing line, but the issue is quickly resolved when Dex, Morlun's Renfield-style cowardly, put-upon assistant, puts a bullet in him and leaves singing [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "ding dong, the witch is dead."]]

* ComicBook/{{X 23}} does this to the Facility which [[OppositeSexClone cloned her]] from {{Wolverine}} to be an assassin. Somewhat subverted that it's actually her biological mother who tells her to rebel and destroy the Facility.
** It's ''very'' clear Laura is also acting for herself and not just her mother's orders when you consider how she deals with Zander Rice: Sarah Kinney told her to kill him. But when she corners him, she puts up her claws and gives him a truly epic NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. She could have ''easily'' killed him instantly, but once she disabled his gun she went after him with her ''bare hands'' as payback for everything he did to her. Laura then takes it UpToEleven when you look at her mission clock and realize she's pounding on him '''''for ten fucking minutes'''''. Capped by Laura's parting BondOneLiner and IronicEcho as she leaves him to die:

** In TheVerse of ''Preacher'', [[GodIsEvil God is a colossal douche]] and TheGrimReaper WasOnceAMan. [[spoiler:These two facts are not unrelated, as it turns out God deliberately ruined the Reaper's mortal life so he'd accept the job. It also transpires that God is only omnipotent while He's on His throne. Naturally, the series ends with the heroes tricking Him into leaving it, and the Reaper dishing out a well-deserved reaping]].
* In ''Franchise/GIJoe'' comics, Destro remarks that the Inuit mercenary Kwinn once told him something along these lines: "A man who whips his dogs will one day pull his own sled."

* In Creator/GrantMorrison's final issue of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', this trope is used tragically. Jean Grey has triumphantly returned and purged the BigBad of the [[TheVirus sentient bacteria]] that was making him evil. Just as the former BigBad appears to be coming to his senses... his abused [[TheIgor Igor]] decapitates him.

* In an issue of ''Comicbook/{{Cable}}'' that dealt with [[TheYugoslavWars the Balkan Wars]], an Albanian scientist [[HonorRelatedAbuse shoots his sister for disgracing the family by being raped]], and then, a few years later, clones her with all her memories intact (one of what was intended to be an army of clones for the Albanians to use to get revenge on the Macedonians). She, understandably, is pissed at him both for killing her and not allowing her to rest in peace after the worst experience of her life, and once Cable stops the scientists' plan and sends their base crashing down around them, she catches her brother in a back room and stabs the sorry guy to death.

In the ''SinestroCorpsWar'', Superboy-Prime joined Sinestro's FiveBadBand alongside the Anti-Monitor, but only as a means of getting revenge by acting out this trope when the opportunity arose.

* Skurge, of TheMightyThor, in one of the most memorable ways possible. He's been treated as a joke by his allies and lover, and ultimately regarded as no more than a dumb brute who occasionally fills in as the VillainOfTheWeek for Thor. Then he snaps. He knocks out Thor before he can make a last stand to let his friends flee Hel, and opts to stand in Thor's place. His reason?

* Vance Astrovik of the ''ComicBook/NewWarriors'' suffered years of abuse from his father before finally biting back. Given his character, it comes as no surprise that he takes being sent to prison as his due.

When their friends come to rescue the both of them, he tries to use Wolfsbane against them... and accidentally triggers her commands. The result is that she attacks him and mauls him to death, implicitly eating him.

** Snively had better luck in issue 50 of [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog the original ''Sonic'' series]]. Robotnik had created an "Ultimate Annihilator" that would cause the universe to cease to exist for a billionth of a second, then to spring back into existence, minus Sonic and his friends. Snively seizes the opportunity to be rid of his oppressor and reprograms the machine to annihilate Robotnik instead.
