* In ''FanFic/DirtySympathy'' [[BadBoss Kristoph]] pours a cup of boiling tea on Apollo and broke the cup on ''his'' head for drinking it at his (Apollo's) desk. Then he [[FauxAffablyEvil threatens very politely and calmly]] to kill Apollo for the crime of showing up to work early.

[[AC: ''{{Series/Arrow}}'']]
* In the NextGenFic series ''[[Fanfic/LegacySeries Legacy]]'', BigBad Joseph Risdon is seriously pissed off that Team Arrow put him behind bars sixteen years ago, and he intends to make Oliver and Felicity pay by visiting everything he suffered in prison on their children.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'']]
* ''Webcomic/HowIBecameYours'' has several instances of this. The first is Zuko discovering that Mai hid evidence of Katara's pregnancy, which he takes as an opportunity to confront her, ''[[DomesticAbuse throw her to the floor]]'' and declare he never loved her (which saddens her to the point of crying). Then Katara [[BloodyMurder bloodbends Mai to death]] because Mai caused her to miscarry. Admittedly, Mai ''was'' trying to kill her at the time, but Katara could just as easily have used bloodbending to incapacitate Mai and send her off to trial.

[[AC: ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'']]
* The 'World Financial Crisis Gangbang' comics. I mean, really -- was ''raping'' America ''really'' the best way to sort out the financial crisis?
* There has existed at least one fanfic in which Canada brutally tortures or murders another character in response to their heinous crime of not remembering Canada's name. To be fair, that does happen to him a lot.

[[AC: ''{{Franchise/Batman}}'']]

* In the ''[[FanFic/TheCATverse [=CATverse=]]]'' story ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5999604/1/Small_World Small World]]'', the Scarecrow [[WouldHurtAChild abducts a child]] and terrorizes her, having already murdered her mother and [[HarmfulToMinors terrified her into insanity with the mutilated corpse]]. Why? She is his half-sister, and their mother raised her instead of him. Earlier in the series, in ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3352858/1/Moose_Tracks_And_Thankful_Men Moose Tracks and Thankful Men]]'', a kid [[BullyingADragon makes fun of him]]. Crane murders him outright "on principle".

[[AC: ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'']]
* ''Fanfic/OldManHenderson'' started a personal crusade against the cult of Hastur, eventually resulting in the cult's, the MadGod's, most of his allies, and Old Man Henderson himself's deaths, because he thought the cult stole his lawn gnomes. What really happened was that he sold them and donated the proceeds to charity while high off his ass, and therefore had no memory of the event; once he sobered up he mistakenly assumed they were stolen.

[[AC: ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'']]
* The reason the main protagonists of ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' stop [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[StupidEvil Brainstorm]] yet again? He shut down [=DirectTV's=] satellite.

[[AC: CrossOver]]
* In ''Fanfic/ChristianHumberReloaded''[[note]]A crossover involving too many fictional works to list here[[/note]], Vash kills a hunter for setting a trap that he stepped in [[{{Hypocrite}} while hunting]] that did not even harm him because it broke on his leg. To make matters worse, the trap [[FridgeLogic may not have even been intended for him]].
** He also plans to "wipe out (Soku's) entire gene pool" for turning him in to the police. For the record, wiping out her gene pool would involve wiping out ''the entire human race.'' Apparently, for him, it just means killing her extended family.
*** After he gets shot in the shoulder after accidentally teleporting to the Super Bowl, he kills 6 million people just to prove a point about how dangerous angry Horteka are.
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9060802/1/Days-of-Futures-Past-What-Does-That-Mean-It-Kinda-Sounds-Sexy Days of Futures Past What Does That Mean It Kinda Sounds Sexy]]'', Kurama tells Robin that someone once insulted ramen in Naruto's presence, so Naruto retaliated by tying them up to a Prius and throwing the person off a bridge. Kurama doesn't say if the Prius was used to suspend the person off the bridge and dangle them upside down or if Naruto threw the car afterward to help sink that person to the water bed below. Most likely the latter due to the fact that Naruto doesn't like Prius vehicles for some reason.
* ''FanFic/DeathNoteEquestria'': Twilight, as Kira, kills criminals of various calibers -- her main targets are {{Karma Houdini}}s and those she considers unrepentant -- so a pony with a life-long history of minor offences might also be offed. Second Kira [[spoiler:(Fluttershy)]], meanwhile, openly kills those who speak against Kira.
* ''Fanfic/LokiAgentOfDoomgard'': The Loki of Battleworld's Paradise domain would narrate any Loki dead for ''entering that domain''. One walks in then drops dead. No other provocation needed, no questions asked.
* ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'' often engage in this, particularly by deciding that anyone who disagrees with them deserves to die. One example is Idiosy, for whom hacking into the author's account is cited as an ''in-universe'' reason for having [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Rachael]] kill him and burn down his house, killing all his wives and guards.
* In ''Fanfic/{{Renegade}}'', the Global Defense Initative uses this as a basic part of their military doctrine. If someone fucks with a GDI colony, their response is to utterly destroy whoever attacked them with overwhelming force. This doctrine lead to them obliterating the pirate bases at Torfan from orbit, and results in full-scale war with the Batarian Hegemony due to them supporting attacks on human colonies. One Citadel politician accuses GDI of [[MakeAnExampleOfThem "making an example"]] out of the batarians, which GDI pretty much agrees with.
* In ''FanFic/TheStoryToEndAllStories'', [[spoiler:the villain was forgotten by the rest of fiction, so he decided to deal with his frustration by kickstarting the Apocalypse.]]
* ''Fanfic/ThinkingInLittleGreenBoxes'': when Beast declares that Harry Potter does have a mutant power -- hair regeneration... and that's why Professor X became [[FaceHeelTurn Onslaught.]]
* ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm''
** Murder is shown as a very rare and serious crime in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]], and the punishment for the guilty is banishment... [[TheNotSoHarmlessPunishment to the Moon]] [[HurlItIntoTheSun or the Sun]]. After hearing this, [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix]] immediately takes it as going too far.
-->''"[[FirstPersonSmartass Geez, being sent to the Sun is 'Going easy on someone'?]] Remind me never to do anything bad in this place."''
** Then there's Trixie, who took the job as the prosecutor as an opportunity to get revenge on Twilight and the mane 6 in general for revealing her as a fraud. Although it's implied later that that is not Trixie's main reason for wanting to get back at Twilight, [[spoiler:as indicated by the presence of black psyche-locks when asked about it]].
** In [[PlayedForLaughs a less serious note]], Rarity wants Phoenix to sue the post office [[ComicalOverreacting for not having enough pens]].
* [[VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown X-COM]] in ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8861606/1/XCOM-Second-Contact XCOM: Second Contact]]'' outdoes the GDI in this. The Relay 314 Incident? X-COM's counterattack on the Turian patrol involved [[CurbStompBattle 400 fighters, a dozen cruisers, and two dreadnoughts]]. Mindoir? Two words, "Chryssalid strikes".
* For defying their prophecy and "embarrassing" the Powers The Be, [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander Harris]] is sentenced to be sent to a world without life in ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-26735/OlBear+Hellmouth+Trooper.htm Hellmouth Trooper]]''. Fortunately, someone else steps in and instead he's sent to [[Franchise/StarWars Kamino]].
* In ''Tricksters and Gods'', Loki (resurrected as Harry Potter) is a big fan of this:
** After realizing that Ginny stole the diary in book 2 (and worse, has a crush on him!) he assaults her, carving "Thief" on to her back, and warns her that he will ruin her entire family financially if she doesn't leave him alone.
** After Voldemort's resurrection, he immediately assumes that Dumbledore plans to martyr him and runs away. Years later, he dismantles the entire wizarding world, imprisoning, institutionalizing, and/or bankrupting various families, most of whom had probably never even spoken to Dumbledore.
* In ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/story.php?no=31044 Things Unseen, Things Unknown, and Things Yet to Be]]'', [[OnlySaneMan Xander]] questions Willow's decision to keep an employee whom she knows full well is spying on them. Willow responds by cutting him off from all Council resources while he's on a mission to an area that's already cost them six people. In other words, she's risks the death of a friend she's known for roughly forty years because he disagreed with her.
* Volt reveals in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12330403/4/Conquering-Eostia Conquering Eostia]]'' that the reason he's raised an army to take over the titular continent and turn all its women int [[SexSlave Sex Slaves]] is because his band of mercenaries were sent on a SuicideMission by one of the kingdoms to defeat another kingdom. Naruto agrees with Volt's desire for revenge on the people who hired him, but can't justify such horrific extremes and vows to stop his former comrade.

[[AC: ''Franchise/DragonAge'']]
* Most of the main cast in FanFic/DragonAgeTheCrownOfThorns, and some others, feel that the DN protagonist [[spoiler:lashes out at Isolde a bit too strongly]], although, true enough, she did [[spoiler:outright accuse him that he doesn't mind killing children]]. Basically, he [[spoiler:makes her cry with TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and even deliberately makes her think he is going to/did kill Connor]]. Fortunately, he'd only [[spoiler:gone upstairs to give the kid a hug and a SoProudOfYou, plus talk to the demon possessing him face to face]].
** When Connor [[spoiler:is finally exorcized]], the DN gets quite angry at [[spoiler:Alim's impersonation of the Grim Reaper]] and, instead of congratulating him and whatnot, drags the mage over to give him a WhatTheHellHero? rant in private. Alim counters it by calling him out on how he reacted too harshly, showing off his own GuileHero traits by perceiving one of Raonar's biggest regrets.

[[AC: ''Manga/FairyTail'']]
* A [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10791036/1/What-Chapter-372-of-Fairy-Tail-should-have-been rewritten]] [[http://mrshoneydew.deviantart.com/art/What-Chapter-372-of-Fairy-Tail-Should-Have-Been-524338116 version]] of Chapter 372 where Erza responds to being stripped naked, having your sensitivity to pain heightened, and then getting whipped like crazy and electrocuted by chopping Kyouka's arms off, smashing her face against a stone floor multiple times, ripping open her stomach and leaving her organs exposed, ripping out a few of her organs, including one of her LUNGS!, squashing her shoulder bones like tin cans, more electrocution, and horrifficly '''[[EyeScream ripping out Kyouka's eyes]]'''! Jesus! Even as payback for ColdBloodedTorture, this is overkill!

[[AC: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy'']]
* In ''[[ShinraHighSOLDIER Shinra High]]'' and ''[[ShinraHighSOLDIER Shinra SOLDIER]]'', Julia and Sephiroth are big fans of this. In response to being attacked by half the football team (even though the football players lost spectacularly), Julia and Sephiroth get revenge by blowing up the football field during a game, openly wounding players and spectators in the process.
** During the Wutai arc, Julia tortures both her victims due to minor slights. Gorki, for daring to call Sephiroth a woman, is tortured until she screams, which includes cutting off both her arms and crushing her legs with Demi. Staniv breaks Julia's katana, so Julia paralyzes her, cuts out her eyeball and forces her to eat it, and then mutilates her so she can bleed to death.

[[AC: ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'']]
* ''FanFic/YouSeemAcquaintedWithThoseDoors'': [[VillainProtagonist Charles Cooper]] murdered five children when he found out they had tampered with the animatronics he was building.

[[AC: ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'']]
* In ''FanFic/TheNewRetcons'':
** Gavin Caine opposed Tracey's campaign to investigate [[spoiler:whether Millborough being built on a former nuclear test site had an adverse effect on the population]]. Why? To get back at his son Anthony through Tracey and her husband Gordon, first for Anthony working for them instead of him, then for opposing his expansion plans for being outdated.
** [[spoiler:Kortney Krelbutz wanted revenge on Moira and Elly, the former for firing her, the latter for not hiring her back. (Never mind that she was busted stealing.) She steals Elly's husband John from her (not that she ever knew, given her untimely death), inherited his millions when he died, then used that to buy out the store she was fired from and fire Moira in turn, then bought out most of Millborough to have it absorbed into Greater Scarborough.]]

[[AC: ''Franchise/HarryPotter'']]
* ''FanFic/DumbledoresArmyAndTheYearOfDarkness'':
** When [[spoiler:Renny, a young Slytherin]], gets caught with a copy of the Quibbler in his bag, he [[spoiler:gets his arms broken by Crabbe and Goyle for being a "blood traitor." Then his dad pulls him out of the school. Then Voldemort murders him along with his whole family. Renny's]] story was one of the greatest TearJerker moments in the fic.
** The Death Eaters respond to the students rebelling by inviting Hans Belsen (who can best be described as a cross between [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Jospef]] [[ColdBloodedTorture Mengele]] and [[ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock Tomás]] [[FinalSolution de]] [[AbsoluteXenophobe Torquemada]], named after an infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergen-Belsen_concentration_camp Nazi Concentration Camp]]) to make an example out of a few students.
* Remember in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' when Ron and Harry were having an argument, because Ron was feeling OvershadowedByAwesome and he felt Harry was hiding something from him? Well, Rose Potter of ''The Girl Who Lived'' responded to this by throwing Ron around the room and carving words into his forehead.
* In ''{{FanFic/Heir}}'', [[FreudianExcuse Voldemort hates Muggles because he was picked on at the orphanage as a child]] and [[KickTheDog they killed his baby snake in front of him.]] Voldemort tracked down his childhood tormenter years later and killed her child.
* In ''FanFic/MyImmortal'', "Samoro" (allegedly James Potter) and "Lucian" (allegedly Lucius Malfoy) are in a band together. Lucian plays a few wrong notes during a concert, and Samoro responds by attempting to ''shoot off Lucian's arm''. But it was later revealed that Snap(e) used DemonicPossession on Samoro to make him do the above, meaning this trope is subverted.
** Not to mention when Ebony's friend Willow becomes a 'prep', she is then murdered and her body is dumped in the woods. And is raped by 'Loopin', because he's a '[[ILoveTheDead necphilak]]'.
** When Ebony and Britney have a confrontation, Britney makes a few off-hand remarks and mocks Enoby. What does Ebony do in response? Use a curse to torture her.
*** Granted, Britney ''did'' [[spoiler:free Snap, Loopin, and Hargrid from "Azkabian."]]
** A more extreme example: When Ebony and "Satan" are making out while taking each others' clothes off and someone tells them that they can't do that (since they're watching a movie in public), Ebony drains her blood.
*** Interestingly, though, the author seems to try to justify the murder, claiming beforehand that the woman was a prep out of nowhere.
* Belinda Jabez in Fanfic/TomRiddlesSchooldays wants to kill Jana Teires for making the Gryffindor Quidditch team when Belinda herself didn't make the Slytherin one.
* In ''Fanfic/TheRealUs'', Blaise calls Hermione a mudblood. His punishment? Being dropped on his head hard enough to be knocked unconscious, imprisoned for a week, and ''denied any medical treatment during that time''[[note]]He almost certainly has a concussion, not to mention potential neck injuries[[/note]]!
* During her time as a student at Hogwarts in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11669575/13/For-Love-of-Magic For Love of Magic]]'', Penelope Clearwater once gave Draco Malfoy detention. As a result, Lucius Malfoy uses his influence to prevent her from getting a respectable job once she graduates. Fortunately for her, she runs into Harry who happens to need a personal assistant and [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe remembers the older girl who did her best to help him despite his prickly attitude]].

[[AC: ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'']]
* ''Fanfic/HitmanMiami'': In one of the chapters, it is mentioned that should 47 even trip off a metal detector, an army of guards will shoot him to death, "as is standard procedure in the event someone sets off a metal detector, anywhere, in the entire world." (This parodies the AllCrimesAreEqual trope from the original games.)

[[AC: ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'']]
* ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'': While imprisoned and horribly tortured, Gamzee was given a GlasgowGrin as punishment. His crime? [[StepfordSmiler Not smiling.]] He's got in on it himself, threatening to rape Eridan and Equius for [[PoorCommunicationKills assuming he knew what was coming]].

[[AC: ''Series/{{House}}'']]
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4301633/1/ Used]]'', Tritter uses kidnapping, gang-rape, murder, stalking, and beating House half to death with his own cane to get revenge for the thermometer incident.

[[AC: ''Literature/{{The Hunger Games}}'']]

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10212679/1/ The Bombshell]]'' has a double whammy. The protagonist Ada has a...thing about being touched. In kindergarten, she recalls, a little girl surprise hugged her from behind and wouldn't let go. So she kicked her. Then, in response, every student in school shunned her for eight or so years. Those kids really know how to hold a grudge.

[[AC: ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'']]
* Tends to be a trend with [[WebVideo/{{Kickassia}} Post-Kickassia]] fic where Critic is concerned. Yes, we know he was an epic dick during that week, but is it really necessary to make him the recipient of a dub-conny gangbang?

[[AC: ''Series/KidsIncorporated'']]
* A rather brutal example occurs in ''The Kids Who Cried 'Ouch''', an answer fanfic to the episode "The Boy Who Cried Gorilla." In the fanfic, Ryan, Connie, and Renee get their "just desserts" for their initial treatment of Richie when he first sees the gorilla. Among other things, Ryan gets beaten to the point that he suffers a drug addiction that causes his grades to fall to flunking levels, Connie gets a knife up the vagina rendering her sterile, and Renee winds up repeatedly getting raped to the point that she winds up pregnant and ends up suffering a miscarriage.

[[AC: ''Amime/KillLaKill'']]
* Don't take Ryuuko's toys [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Kill-la-Kill-AU-X-Don-t-take-Ryuuko-s-toys-466001765 or else]]. To elaborate, Nui took Ryuuko's stuffed rabbit and Ryuuko's response, rather than tell on her, was to threaten her with an AK-47.
* In ''Fanfic/CellarSecrets'', the reason as to why [[spoiler:Ryuuko]] was locked away in a cellar and underwent horrible abuse is surmised as "because she was born". Of course, whether or not that was the actual reason she was locked away has yet to be said, but that is all Satsuki and Nui have to go on. As we later found out, this was part of it, as [[spoiler: a mentally ill Ragyo had become pregnant with her just as her marriage had collapsed]].

[[AC: ''Manga/LuckyStar'']]
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8026135/1/The_Day_Everything_Changed_Revised_Edition The Day Everything Changed]]'', the main antagonist of the story, [[BigBad Sakura Takahashi]], went on the attack, giving Kagami [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown the mother of all beatdowns]] and injuring the poor girl so badly that she had to be rushed to the hospital. What the hell did Kagami do to deserve this? The fact that she simply scored higher than Sakura on a midterm (and considering Sakura has been held back twice, and got a 36 while Kagami got a 96, she should have realized this would happen). If that's not DisproportionateRetribution, then I don't know what is. It doesn't help that she had secretly had a grudge towards Kagami for god knows how long. Luckily, [[LaserGuidedKarma justice quickly catches up with her]].

[[AC: ''Franchise/MortalKombat'']]
* ''Fanfic/InWithTheOldOutWithTheNew'': Kano kidnaps Cassie in retaliation following his defeat at the hands of Sonya. Cassie then challenges Kano to kombat for her freedom... and wins. Kano, being the sore loser that he is, [[spoiler:''rapes Cassie.'']]
* However, Kano gets it worse in ''Mortal Kombat: Redemption,'' as it is Cassie herself who not only kills his lieutenants (and framing the Red Dragon), but also [[ColdBloodedTorture brutally tortures]] Kano as payback for kidnapping both her and Jacqui (seen in the Tie-in Comics), before killing him [[CruelAndUnusualDeath by performing the 'blood eagle']]. Then, to make sure he's dead, Cassie blows off the back of his head with a shotgun.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'']]
* ''Fanfic/CadanceOfCloudsdale'': Lady Prisimia was ''banished from Equestria'' because her boyfriend grew ''bored'' of her and started spreading MaliciousSlander so intense that Celestia herself exiled her. [[spoiler:Actually a {{Subversion}}, as Cadance notes how Prismia was under the spell of an [[ArtifactOfDoom evil amulet]] that amplified the negative traits of her personality and altered her perceptions of reality. It was far more likely that Prismia grew increasingly scathing and hostile until a real incident happened, and she chose self-exile than stay any longer in Canterlot]].
** Same with Prismia's reasons for [[EmotionEater stealing love from everyone in Reduit]]. Because of her nasty breakup with her coltfriend, she decided to take love from these people "because they didn't deserve to be happy" while she was miserable.
* ''FanFic/CelestiaVSCleverbot'': Luna gets upset with Cleverbot and takes out her anger by destroying the computer and setting it on fire.
* In ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'', TheManBehindTheMan is [[spoiler:the Bag of Tirek, which wants to destroy all of humanity because Megan destroyed its creator.]]
* In [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/103214/denuo-fortuna Denuo Fortuna]], one pony feels up Icefang... ...So she responds by breaking both of his forehooves later that night.
* ''GettingBackOnYourHooves'': Why is Checker Monarch so intent on destroying Trixie's life? Because, when she was a filly, she ''beat her at chess''.
* In the [[Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse Lunaverse]] story ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'', Night Light blocks the sending of emergency funds to Ponyville just to punish Trixie for insulting Twilight. And it gets worse: [[spoiler:he tells Trixie the only two ways he'll accept her apology are if she resigns from the Night Court, giving up her life dream in the process, or if she finds and returns Twilight to him. Failure to do either will result in him preventing her from advancing past Representative.]]
* ''Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic'':
** Titan got his face disfigured in his past and was shunned by everyone for his hideous looks afterwards. Years later, he kills his entire species and starts to destroy parts of the multiverse for no other reason than that it is fun. [[spoiler:His former fiancee,]] Serpentari, also has a similar motive.
** The author wrote the entire fanfic, which insults bronies as being losers who dare to believe in positive things, because one single brony made fun of him.
*** [[spoiler:In the sequel, he makes Cadance suffer, just because he does not like the fact that in the show, she got happily married.]]
** Ace Ray gets sent to an insane asylum and essentially brainwashed into liking Star Fleet, for the crime of... saying mean things about them. Sure, he beat up his sister, but the way it's worded, it sounds like Starfleet was looking for an excuse to arrest him.
** Frosteye had been trapped in a frozen cavern for a century by Princess Celestia due to being a mocker.
* [[SarcasmMode Hey kids,]] is the nerd asking questions that the teacher holds off recess to answer? That's not cool! Let's trick her into going into a forest full of hungry monsters to an ancient and quite possibly cursed ruin [[spoiler:where she'll get {{mind rape}}d by memories she didn't know she had!]] Sound harsh? In ''Fanfic/PastSins'', Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon did it! [[spoiler:Although, to be fair, they didn't know that the mind rape thing would happen. The monsters, on the other hand, are common knowledge.]]
* One conclusion to the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' DarkFic "Pattycakes"[[note]]which, to be fair, is intended as parody[[/note]] ends with Fluttershy singing to Rainbow Dash about how Dash[[note]]who does have a bad habit of saying things without thinking first[[/note]] will never hurt anyone's feelings again now that she's been ''[[MindRape mentally regressed to an infant]]''. The ''[[MultipleEndings other]]'' conclusion has Scootaloo fail to grasp Fluttershy's philosophy after going through the series of (twisted) tests, and if she fails the final test by ''drinking water instead of milk'', she's regressed even ''further'' than Dash (Dash had BabyTalk, Scoot loses the power of speech ''entirely''), with no hope of ever recovering. (For your daily humour-so-dark-light-cannot-escape-its-surface needs, her cutie mark takes the form of a baby's pacifier, since she's not exactly going to have the chance to demonstrate any ''other'' talents, now is she?)
* In Shining Armor's side story in the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', the arc's BigBad [[GeneralRipper Makarov]]'s reaction to Shining not knowing who he is is to ''try to assassinate him''. And that's plan A -- plan B is to instead subject him to a FateWorseThanDeath.
** When Diamond Tiara went through her mother's jewelry and "borrowed" a tiara (earning her cutie mark in the process), her mother didn't take it well. And by that I mean she tried to ''strangle her own daughter to death''.
** Let's not forget the [[BadFuture Dark World]] arc, where [[spoiler:Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox, formerly Twilight Sparkle, has been [[GroundhogDayLoop rewinding time]] simply to continue to make Discord suffer.]] An interesting example, because [[spoiler:Discord really did enough to her to warrant a truly horrific punishment, Paradox managed to [[KnightTemplar go so far]], her revenge went into this trope ''despite'' how much Discord did to her.]]
* In ''FanFic/SophisticationAndBetrayal'', Cashmere wants to ruin Rarity and destroy her business, simply because the latter declined her affections.
* In ''FanFic/BrideOfDiscord'', Discord claims turning Equestria into a WorldGoneMad, overthrowing Celestia, and tormenting all of pony kind for who knows how long, was initially just because Celestia got mad at him for several pranks that were ''his'' fault. [[spoiler: Possibly a subversion, as he ''was'' ridiculed and shunned by everypony except Celestia prior, so the only pony who gave him a chance getting mad at him for what he considered harmless fun, may have just been the straw that broke the camels back.]]

[[AC: ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'']]
* In ''[[http://ficwad.com/story/213011 Eroninja]]'', Furofuki plans to break Tsunade, destroy Konoha, make Naruto her sex slave, and enslave the world as [[AGodAmI god]]. Her reasoning is explained as jealousy that Tsunade was more skilled than her and that Dan chose Tsunade over her. She also blames Tsunade for [[NeverMyFault Dan dying in the ambush Furofuki set up to have Tsunade killed]].
* Invoked in ''Escape From The Hokage's Hat''. The council want to banish Naruto, want Sasuke's prison sentence forgotten and were smart enough to get the Daimyo to agree with any of their decisions. Tsunade's response? Shove Sasuke in one of the darkest ANBU cells being kept barely alive, setting up the collapse of Konoha's economy, taking money from the accounts of every clan that ever wronged Naruto and finally making Jiraiya (temporary) Sixth Hokage while she leaves with Shizune, Hinata and Naruto for a six month training trip. When she [[RationalizingTheOverkill explains why she did it to Naruto]], she has this to say:
--> "I decided to teach those meddling old fools a lesson in respect. If the reason I came back to the village is kicked out, I am SO joining in the fun!"
* ''FanFic/IAmNOTGoingThroughPubertyAgain!'' has Tobi mutilate a delivery ninja who was delivering his invitation to the Uchiha family reunion. He also immolates the remains and empties his bladder on the body for good measure. Why? [[spoiler:''It was for mentioning his real name'']].
* ''Rinne no Naruto'' has Naruto decide to torture and kill a kid who used to bully him.
* In ''Fanfic/DreamingOfSunshine'', Shikako basically masterminds a revolutionary upgrade of the Logistics department via her seals (with help of Tenten) that leaves the department in chaos. Why? [[spoiler: Somebody in Logistics called Shikamaru an idiot.]]

[[AC: ''Manga/OnePiece'']]
* ''FanFic/ThisBites'': In retaliation for the humiliation he suffered [[spoiler:on the SBS]], Garp forges Sengoku's signature so [[spoiler:Merry, an anthropomorphic ''ship'', gets a bounty for ''chomping on his ass'', and]] Cross and Soundbite get ''one of the highest bounties in the world''. The latter two alternate between being elated and depressed over this, as while this measure of infamy garners a lot of respect and fear, it also increases the amount of enemies and danger they face.

[[AC: ''Literature/{{Percy Jackson And The Olympians}}'']]
* Fanfic/MoonDaughter: A teenager who bullies the protaganist is sentenced be "chained to a giant coach purse for internity."

[[AC: ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'']]
* In ''FanFic/LatiasJourney'', the Ghost King proposes to Latias after sending her several gifts. She refuses his advances, so he kills her family, and then destoys her home, Altomare, along with everyone in it. Judging by the city it is based on, he killed upwards of 800,000 people. Strangely enough, she still falls in [[AMillionIsAStatistic love with him.]]
* In ''FanFic/{{New World}}'', Maddie smacks Ashton in the face. And he proceeds to savagely beat her. Keep in mind that the reason she hit him in the first place was because he was tring to ''rape her.''
* In the Creator/HansVonHozel story ''Pikachus Umbrella'', Pikachu is locked in a prison cell for all eternity for stealing a TV set.
* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has some examples:
** Like in the anime, Azalea Town's collective BerserkButton seems to be whenever anyone steps on a Slowpoke's tail. No matter if it's a girl who did it by accident, and in the process saved a baby carriage from being squashed by traffic.
** One girl [[IHaveNoSon was kicked out of her home by her parents]] [[FantasticRacism for being a bloodliner]]. A ''[[DodgeTheBullet Detect]]'' bloodliner.
** An incident with a DirtyOldMan [[ThePeepingTom who tried to spy on a wedding]] in the Celadon Gym led to ''all'' male trainers being banned from challenging it.
* In the ''FanFic/PokeWars'' series, [[BigBad Ho-Oh]] sees genocide as a fitting punishment for humanity's "enslavement" of [[{{Mons}} Pokémon]].

[[AC: ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'']]
* ''FanFic/TheUrthbloodSaga'':
** Broggen and his friend Brigger used to be quite fond of drinking, and after consuming too much wine, they go around terrorizing several goodbeasts, ruining Urthblood's chance of gaining the region's trust. Urthblood responds by ''throwing them into a bog to slowly drown'' (although Broggen was saved before he perished).
** Wolfrum is accidentally pricked in the behind by a young hedgehog's spikes. He responds by taking out his sword, ready to seriously injury (if not kill) the hedgehog.
* ''FanFic/WhatLiesBeyondTheWalls'':
** In a flashback, Benrath and a friend of his spy on his father [[PottyFailure as he soils himself in his sleep]]. When Log-a-Log wakes up and finds the two laughing at him, he beats his son to a pulp and then ''snaps his friend's neck''.
** In Book I, Benrath humiliates [[JerkJock Jurlick]] by beating him senseless in front of his friends and then [[ExcrementStatement defecating into his mouth]]. While it's understandable for Jurlick to seek revenge, his method of getting back at Benrath in Book II is to [[spoiler:directly (or indirectly) kill his three closest friends and then manipulate [[DepravedHomosexual Rowgat]] and several monitor lizards into ''gang-raping him''.]]

[[AC: RealPersonFic]]
* Inverted in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached''. Because the four are {{Actual Pacifist}}s, when they are treated very badly (even tortured in a way) by the Uneasy Alliance in Ehndris�at one point, part of George's ''soul'' is taken from him and have a chance to get some of their own back, they just slap people around for a few seconds. The worst that happens is a few people get slammed into a wall or hosed down, and George does [[CatsAreMean cat tornado]] on [[spoiler: Brox's]] head.
** It's even more disproportionate when you realize that George did nothing else during the final battle except try not to get hurt, and Paul did nothing except absorb damage and hold Kerrun upside-down and tap her head on the floor to keep her from concentrating.
* Most of the [[http://gungemaleceleb.blogspot.com.au/ Gunge Male Celebs]] stories. Plenty of times, we have a cocky celebrity, [[InformedFlaw or a celebrity who we are told is cocky]], who walks into a trap, [[HumiliationConga and is subsequently humiliated,]] with everyone, including the narration, saying it's their 'just desserts', and that [[NoSympathy they deserved it.]] [[http://gungemaleceleb.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/story-watergoo-road.html Here's an example.]] And it's all because that they are simply cocky.

[[AC: ''Manga/{{Saki}}'']]
* In ''Fanfic/SakiAfterStory'', by the author of ''Fanfic/TheDayEverythingChanged'', Saki narrowly wins against Teru in the finals of the mahjong tournament. When Saki approaches Teru after the match, and Teru beats her up badly enough to send her to the hospital (doing the same to Nodoka when she tries to help Saki), the people covering the tournament assume that it's because Teru is a SoreLoser. It's actually because Saki tried to talk to Teru and claimed to be her sister, [[DoubleSubversion which still counts]].

* In a pornographic ''Series/SesameStreet'' fic ([[CanonDefilement yes,]] [[Rule34 such things exist]]), Maria responds to Elmo peeping on her and lying about being three years old for years by diapering him, and taking his temperature with a rectal thermometer, with several of the other girls joining in the latter, groping his penis in the process. In response, Elmo [[spoiler:ejaculates into her, getting her pregnant ([[ArtisticLicenseBiology because monster sperm gets people pregnant without fail]]), and tells her that if she doesn't want her husband Luis to find out, [[ScarpiaUltimatum she and her 14-year-old daughter will have sex with him whenever he wants]].]]

* ''Fanfic/TheRacketRotterChronicles'': In the first chapter of Arc 3, The Builder slaughters an entire town because Annette drank a bottle of their liquor.

* In Episode 61 of ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'', Sonic and his friends heavily damage Beelzebub's prototype flagship. His response? In episode 67, Beelzebub brutally tortures Cosmo and [[spoiler: nearly rapes Chris to death]] after luring them to his base. Although revenge wasn't the [[ForTheEvulz only]] [[SenseFreak reason]]...
** [[RonTheDeathEater Cosmo's mother Hertia]] exterminated an entire tribe of primitive aliens because they worshiped an icon of Tsali. She also [[PayEvilUntoEvil had several of Tsali's acquaintances publicly tortured to death]] and even imprisoned Seedrians who protested her actions.
* Done to a wicked extent in ''PrisonIslandBreak.'' In this prison your protagonists are being tortured, raped, and beaten up almost daily. But they're murderers, psychopaths and serial rapists. The writer ''never'' lets you forget it. They deserve it, right? And yet you're feeling sorry for them? Are you sick or something?! Don't worry; there's nothing wrong with your empathy circuits. That conflict of emotions you're getting? That's ''intentional.'' You have to feel it to believe it.

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'']]
* In MrKrabsUnquenchableBloodLust, when Mr. Krabs learns that the health inspector is a fake posing as a real inspector in order to scam people for free food, instead of calling the police and having him arrested, he kills him with a poisoned Krabby Patty (Although to be fair, this is something he tries to do in the show).

[[AC: ''Franchise/StarTrek'']]
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9279948/1/Unbeaten Unbeaten]]'' Spock infects Khan with a deadly virus because he refused to stop [[SlashFic seeing Kirk]].

[[AC: ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'']]
* ''FanFic/TheEndOfEnds'' pulls a massive one. The villain, Count Logan, who is [[spoiler:Beast Boy after getting a SuperpoweredEvilSide]], sucks people who were mean to him or otherwise were just living happy lives into his book and kills them. He also has his minions blow up Tamaran because Starfire got together with Robin [[spoiler:when Terra didn't get together with him]]. In fact, the entire reason why he was blowing up the universe was because [[spoiler:he got "dumped" by Terra]].
* In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3851787/1/The-Joker-s-Wild Joker's Wild]], the Joker kidnaps Beast Boy and puts him through horrific ColdBloodedTorture for weeks on end. Why? Because an action figure of Beast Boy just happened to be programmed to say "Dude, I'm the King of Jokers!"

[[AC: '' VideoGame/TouhouProject'']]
* In [[Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX Gensokyo 20XXII]] Ran was scalded with some kind of liquid (hinted at to be either acid or very hot water) for snooping through papers and was left with severe burns, resulting scars after she healed. That is a pure testament to how brutal their captors are.
** In 20XXV,in chapter 66, we have it where Paintbrush Bitch lets Reimu outside of the apartment building, knowing that would place her in danger, which it does when she goes into The Forbiddens, all because Yukari curb-stomped her for calling her a whore.
** Arguably, this is case when Reimu stabs Yume Ni with a pair of scissors in response to being kicked in the face, then again, one could say it was an eye for an eye, since Yu dealt her injury and she dealt it back.
* Yuuka is virtually the queen of this in Fanfic/ImperfectMetamorphosis, along with being WickedCultured. She only lashes out when someone breaks etiquette. An example being when she killed the couple in the hotel room, because they screamed in terror upon seeing her instead of giving her a proper greeting. Another example being that she didn't attack any of Yukari's backup teams until they attacked her, thus breaking the rules of her engagement with Yukari. Kanako picks up on this and manages to talk Yuuka into going home for the day.

[[AC: ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'']]
* One tiny piece of artwork describes Makari, Warlord Ghazghkull mag Uruk Thraka's banner carrier, as his one and only genuine friend. You do happen to remember Ghazghkull's crusade to unite the whole Orkoid race and wipe out Humanity, before clearing out everyone else? That's because he hates them for murdering his lucky Gretchin. In the story written for the artwork, Ghazghkull orders his WAAAGH! to occasionally return to the world where Makari's grave is buried. He then goes to the grave alone and just talks to Makari about his WAAAGH's process. So far, he is succeeding.

[[AC: ''Anime/YuGiOh'']]
* In ''FanFic/SonOfApophis'' the villain gives a speech about how pointless the whole 'eye for an eye' thing is. It's better to take both eyes, and the other guy's arms while you're at it.

[[AC: ''Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries'']]
* [[http://kleinerkiller.deviantart.com/gallery/41037509 Yognapped]]: [[spoiler: [[EvilFormerFriend Peva]]]] was exiled from the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} for crimes LetsPlay/{{Sips}} only refers to as "being an irresponsible dickhead." This affected him so much that he waited until Minecraftia was in a state of crisis, rallied the remnants of the [[BadassArmy Ironstorm Army]] around him, [[spoiler: kidnapped and enslaved his former friends, [[MakeAnExampleOfThem murdered Sips to demonstrate his seriousness]], and forced the survivors to release Herobrine, nearly causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]]
