When one of the villains killed the parent (usually father) of one of the heroes, it'll be that hero who kills that villain, even if this isn't an explicit act of vengeance. Examples:
- Trope Namer: Hellboy.
- In Mystery Men, Eddie Izzard, Dragon to Big Bad Goeffrey Rush, killed Janeane Garofalo's father. Various villains are killed by various heroes, but she gets him.
- Hello. My Name Is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
- Hamlet, and, therefore, The Lion King.
- Harry Potter is the guy who gets Voldemort.
Hello, Unknown Troper. You'll need to get known to lend a hand here.
