->''"When I woke up, I went on what [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall the movie advertisements]] referred to as a roaring rampage of revenge. I roared. I rampaged. And I got bloody satisfaction."''
-->-- '''The Bride''', ''Film/KillBill, Vol. 2''

[[EnemiesList She's making her list]], [[SantaClaus she's checking it twice]], and she's [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil checking off your name after she's killed you nice]], probably for [[ItsPersonal making it personal]]. And in the above example she's even ''quoting her own movie poster blurb''. But it's okay, you deserve it, because you're evil, [[MamaBear kidnapped her child]] and you probably [[KickTheDog kicked her dog]] ([[MoralEventHorizon if not worse]]) as well. Either you're a minion or you're the BigBad behind it all, but it doesn't matter in the end because either way, you're going down... and Joe or Jane Hero is going to be the one to do it, even if it means [[TakingYouWithMe going down with you]].

The Roaring Rampage of Revenge differs from the standard {{Revenge}} plot in that our hero dispenses with the Machiavellian plotting that would define a classic revenge tale and goes straight for the bloodshed, either in a single, violent UnstoppableRage or TranquilFury-fueled rampage on the bad guy's home base, or a more methodical "working one's way up the food chain" from lesser foes to the bigger fish.

If the hero has a specific hit-list, this usually ends up as a GottaKillThemAll situation as the hero hunts down and kills each bad guy on the list before moving on to the next. In most cases, the second to last bad guy on the hit-list is the [[TheDragon Dragon]] for whichever BigBad that the hero has saved for last, and is usually someone the hero has an especially personal beef with and/or is the most {{psycho|ForHire}}tic or otherwise hateworthy foe on the list aside from the BigBad.

Alternately the reasoning is that the hero just has a single lead, and [[LinkedListClueMethodology each lead gives him/her one more name or clue before they die]].

Many such avengers may keep a TragicKeepsake to remind them of their lost loved one or other reason that they're on this vendetta to begin with, although they may fall victim to ForgottenFallenFriend if the quest goes on long enough. Sometimes fulfilling the revenge may end up as a case of VengeanceFeelsEmpty and not give the avenger the expected joy.

Would-be avengers need to be extremely careful about falling into HeWhoFightsMonsters territory. It's one thing to take revenge on someone who is directly responsible for wronging you, but it's quite another to extend your revenge to that person's children, people who are only tangentially related to the main target, and any innocent bystanders unlucky enough to get in the way. If this happens, then TheHero may cease to be [[FallenHero worthy of that title.]]

Compare LastStand, where the motives are frequently the same. May be a case of RevengeBeforeReason culminating in a SelfDestructiveCharge. In other cases, the anger has burned itself out by the end, leaving only a dogged {{Determinator}} to finish the task. Also compare to RoaringRampageOfRescue, where the goal of the rampage is to rescue a loved one rather to exact revenge for what was done to them. The two may overlap.
