* ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'': A certain mod released by a gamer is "Who's Laughing Now?!" a variation of Gruntpocalypse where the [[TheGoomba grunts]] are made four times tougher, immune to headshots, and benefit from two skulls which generate both extreme accuracy and bullet spam.
* ''VideoGame/{{Pac-Man}}''. The game is founded upon the ability to change the game from fleeing indestructible enemies to ''eating them.''
-->'''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns]]:''' Ha ha! The hunter has become the hunted!
* Heroic ([[NinetiesAntiHero kinda]]) example: Tombstone from ''FreedomForce'' uses this sentence when he's returned from the dead and confronts his wife's killer, who had framed him for the murder and sent him to the electric chair.
-->'''Tombstone:''' '' '''You.''' The innocent die while the guilty laugh. '''Who's laughing now?''' ''
* {{Magikarp|Power}} of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is [[MemeticMutation PAINFULLY waiting to evolve]] to invoke this trope.
** It's explicitly stated in a PokÚdex entry that, upon evolving, [[NightmareFuel/{{Pokemon}} Dustox seeks revenge on those who attacked it while it was a Cascoon]].
** There's also [[CreepyDoll Banette's]] dex entry, where it's stated it wants revenge on the child who abandoned it.
** Before ''X and Y'', Clefairy, Clefable, Togepi, Snubbull and Granbull were weak against Fighting types. Now that they've been retconned from Normal to Fairy, ''they're'' the ones with a type advantage.
* One of the {{Quirky Miniboss Squad}}s in ''VideoGame/ExitFate'' says exactly this when they come after Daniel when [[spoiler:Brunhild summons demons into them]]. A HopelessBossFight, several OhCrap moments and OneManArmy demonstrations are involved.
* [[spoiler: Adachi]] of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. While his motive is SmallTownBoredom, this is his FreudianExcuse. Considering the crap he gets up to, this doesn't make him even remotely sympathetic.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising'', heavily implied to be an aspect of Paul's [[AxCrazy Psychopath]] [[PyroManiac status]], or rather half-stated.
* In ''HenryHatsworthInThePuzzlingAdventure'', [[spoiler:Cole]] is revealed as the BigBad, stating that [[spoiler:he's finally sick of being Henry's HypercompetentSidekick that does the actual work of locating the treasure while Henry goes off and gets all the glory]].
* Garland of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' is both the WarmUpBoss and the FinalBoss.
** In [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia]], he will knock you down and [[LargeHam enjoy it very much]].
** Exdeath of VideoGame/FinalFantasyV is much the same.
* This is Terumi's line in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueCalamityTrigger'' when Rachel appears to warn Noel not to look at him when he reveals his true identity!
-->'''Terumi''': Heeheehahahaha! Hahahahahaha! You recognized me, didn't you!? Hey, shitty vampire! Who's laughing now!?
** Lotte Carmine was a scientist working at Sector Seven; for the entire time he did, he was ignored by Kokonoe, mocked by Relius, and eventually broke up with his love. He got his revenge, though at terrible prices. Then again... [[spoiler:Eating people, insect powers, being able to deal a ''lot'' of damage... maybe him turning into Arakune isn't so bad.]] This is, however, subverted that [[spoiler:the people he ate was relatively minor ones, he cannot consume his true target that is the Azure within Ragna the Bloodedge. He spends his time getting beaten up by nearly everyone (and ends up easily captured by Relius), other people (including Kokonoe and Relius) talking on how he's still a failure at his form (and they're actually proven right and Terumi hammers it down to him), his speech got impeded so bad that he can't get everything across clearly... He certainly wished to invoke the trope, but utterly fails in the middle, as he ends up with even more ridicules than respect.]]
** Then ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma Chronophantasma]]'' proceeds to reconstruct it. [[spoiler:Turns out, Relius capturing him comes with the package of modifying him, [[TookALevelInBadass giving him a boost of badass]] AND coherency in speech. Then he got 'Observed' by Hazama as Arakune, not Lotte Carmine, therefore he gets to keep his more powerful blob form forever. How badass? Let's just say he goes from everyone's punching bag into capable of beating the crap out of Bang Shishigami and ''stole'' his Rettenjou, AND fighting Hakumen and surviving instead of getting cut down. Yikes.]]
* Admit it, you've laughed when you ended a poor mook's existence with the Vanguard Rush from VideoGame/MassEffect2. And you've also probably got a good giggle realizing you're the only one who can do it. And then "Lair of the Shadow Broker" rolled around, and you met [[spoiler: [[{{Badass}} Tela Vasir]]]]. Not so much [[TheJoysOfTorturingMooks funny]] as [[BestBossEver just fun.]]
** And then the third game comes out, and we receive the ''[[ThatOneBoss not awesome]]'' horror that is the Banshee, s super-tough, incredibly strong opponent that can warp across the battlefield to [[PersonalSpaceInvader smack you in the face]]. [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice Or stick their hand through your chest.]]
** No one can end Kai Leng's life and not feel this.
* In ''VideoGame/RuneScape'', both Lucien and Bilrach were both looked down upon by both humans and their own kind, and were disregarded as frail and weak. Now [[spoiler: Lucien is on his way to godhood]], and [[spoiler: Bilrach is the leader of a massive army of demons, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, and powerful warriors]].
* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', after [[spoiler: Wheatley gets plugged into GLaDOS's body]]. He directs this attitude towards Glados, who had spent a few seconds calling him an idiot, and ''you'', who had made all this possible for him in the first place and been with him every step of the way; he claims you've been bossing him around constantly when the opposite is true.
* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', the notorious Cucco calls on its comrades after being whacked with a sword one too many times by the hero, Link.
** If you manage to glitch out of the main town in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' and hit the black Cucco with an arrow it will murder you... rather violently.
* In ''VisualNovel/WinterShard'', the game opens with a lonely, desperate Frederic being continually denied food and shelter by the people he tries to seek help from and then [[AnArmAndALeg having his right arm ripped off]] by [[SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp Temonz]], for the sole crime of being the son of a man accused of treason. Naturally, when he's resurrected and granted dark powers by Krotus, he exults in getting his sweet revenge on these people.
* Literal example in ''[[http://www.i-mockery.com/minimocks/duckhunt/default.php Kill the Dog from Duck Hunt]]''.
* A heroic/player version is possible in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''. As the game progresses -- and in the harder levels of Challenge Maps -- you'll run into [[StaticStunGun stun-baton]]-wielding {{mooks}}, and they take great pleasure in destroying your combos, [[InterfaceScrew shaking your screen]], giving their buddies ample time to take a chunk off of your health, and generally being one of the [[GoddamnBats most irritating form of mooks in the game]]. One of Batman's takedown moves involves him taking the stun baton out of the mooks hand and shocking him with it.
** Then came the Nightwing {{DLC}}, and as it happens, {{Nightwing}} is ''[[DualWielding dual-wielding]]'' electrified [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escrima escrima]] sticks. Cue [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge payback]].
* ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw'': [[spoiler:The BigBad's whole motivation for bringing about a ZombieApocalypse. To get back at everyone in his high school who ever made fun of him or humiliated him- including the game's protagonist, Juliet.]]
* ''BaldursGate II: Shadows of Amn'': This is the offscreen backstory for Kalah the illusionist, who somehow gains great power and turns the circus where the worked into a BiggerOnTheInside fantasy world where things are not as they seem, in order to take revenge on those who made fun of him -- basically making a PowerFantasy real.
* The premise of ''Days of Monsters'' is that your character was bullied as a kid and turned to mad science in order to get revenge.
* Anytime in ''DawnOfWar: Dark Crusade'', when the Imperial Guard manages to deploy a Baneblade. IG is a RedshirtArmy, whose viable tactis boil down to "have more soldiers than the enemy has bullets" and the Baneblade is a ''huge'' investment in time and resources. However, the eleven-cannoned behemoth is nearly capable of clearing maps on its own, and when it rolls out... to quote the game:
--> Who's dying now!?
* [[ActionGirl Annette]] [[PsychicPowers Durand]] of ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' was captured and tortured by the aliens, and then by [[TheQuisling EXALT]]. After she is rescued and recruited as a soldier in [=XCOM=], she is quite happy to use MindControl on the aliens:
--> "Remember me!?"
