* ''DisproportionateRetribution/TheNostalgiaCritic''
* In BartBaker's [[{{PsychoExGirlfriend}}I Knew You Were Trouble parody, Taylor Swift hunts down her ex-boyfriends, just for dumping her and in the 22 parody, she kidnaps and torments them. But it does not stop there. In the Wildest Dreams parody, she kills her exes.]]
* Creator/GavinFree of Creator/RoosterTeeth's Creator/AchievementHunter has been the target of a number of DisproportionateRetribution attacks, including getting punched in the stomach by Geoff for winning the Tower of Pimps (and just outright attacking him for trolling him in general) in their ''[[LetsPlay/AchievementHunterMinecraftSeries Let's Play Minecraft]]'' series and being flipped off his chair and stacking two chairs on top of him by Joel for insulting his ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' gametype.
* At the conclusion of the Mechakara arc in ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'', [[spoiler: Dr. Insano captures the crippled Mechakara and tortures him with a magnet. Why? The robot made Insano [[TraumaticHaircut cut his hair]].]]
** Speaking of Mechakara, the only reason he [[spoiler:murdered his universe's version of Linkara and skinned him so he could use magical devices and started a RobotWar to KillAllHumans]]...was because he thought Linkara's voice was annoying and he wanted him to shut up.
* In Peach's Revenge, after Bowser successfully manages to kill Mario, Peach makes it her mission in life to destroy everything that he holds dear, starting with burning his Koopaling henchmen alive.
* Ice the Frosty Cat [[spoiler: utterly destroyed Ranger]] in the most humiliating way he possibly could in game 10 of Roleplay/ComicFuryWerewolf... for something [[spoiler: Ranger]] did in Game 6--catch [[spoiler: that Ice was a werewolf]]. Keep in mind, by that point, [[spoiler: Ranger had died in game 6, so Ice didn't lose because of Ranger.]]
* In the web series Beebo, Harry shoots his titular cat in the face for smoking weed. Admittedly, he had warned that he would do so if he ever caught him smoking again after the first time it occurred, but it was still disproportionate nonetheless.
* For the love of all that is pure, ''do not dent [[Website/{{Cracked}} Chris Bucholz's]] car and neglect to leave a [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/greatest-note-ever-left-dented-car/ note]].''
* In the very first episode of ''WebAnimation/DaAmazinOTAdvenchr'', TheBully calls Lite a "fgt". Two episodes later, Lite kills him and another person who called him a "fgt".
* In ''WebVideo/DeathNoteTheAbridgedSeriesTeamDattebayo'' Light and Misa don't want to go to UsefulNotes/McDonalds and so Mr. Yagami decides to shoot them:
--->'''Souichiro:''' Pray that there's a Taco Bell in Hell!
* The SWAG leader of WebVideo/DemoReel assumes that kidnapping someone at gunpoint and leaving them to starve to death slowly in an abandoned patch of woods is justifiable punishment for his territory getting threatened.
* In ''WebVideo/DeathNoteTheAbridgedSeriesKpts4tv'', [[spoiler: Matt]] gets shot up for speeding and the task force decided that [[spoiler: L]] needs to die because [[spoiler: L told Matsuda that [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Mickey]] isn't real.]]
* In ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' when Frieza asks Gohan and Krillin what planet they come from Krillin almost tells him out of fear but Gohan stops him... [[spoiler: only for Dende to do it out of revenge for Krillin constantly calling him Little Green]].
* In the Youtube video "Muppet Sex Tape", after Kermit catches Elmo shamelessly flirting with Miss Piggy, he tells him that if he catches Elmo leaving a voice mail to Miss Piggy again, or if he ever sees them together, he will have Oscar thr Grouch break his kneecaps and then get Bert and Ernie to rape him.
* Creator/FreddieWong gives us the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXaoi6dz59A crown prince of this trope.]]
* Doctor XX (she pronounces is "Doctor Double-X") from the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' is a MadScientist supervillain whose only real goal is the complete and utter eradication of all male life on the planet (male humans, male dogs, male chickens, male fish... doesn't matter; if its male, it has to go). Why does she do this? Because she once lived with a man who was a verbally abusive dick.
* ''Website/GoAnimate'' videos where a person is Grounded will invoke this trope heavily. It doesn't matter how minor the offense is, expect the person being punished by being grounded for an impossibly long time. This is the start, though - many videos have shown the target being expelled from school for getting a math problem wrong, toys destroyed for playing sick and even outright ''killed''.
* The entire premise of WebAnimation/GoodbyeKitty subverts this trope.
* The machinima series ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdYjZWodscU Hard Justice]]'' is all about a police force that dishes these out to people. Got your music on too loud? Turn it down or you'll get a rocket to the face...[[TooDumbToLive point blank]]. [[spoiler:Of course, it's all part of the BigBad's plan to have the most ineffective law enforcement possible so his criminal actions goes unnoticed and unpunished.]]
* ''Literature/InterviewingLeather'' hangs a lampshade on this:
-->''"If you ever, ever break my orders again... as God as my witness I will devote whatever time I have out of jail to making your lives living Hells. I will break your knees. I will beat up your wives and kids. I will make fun of your mothers and kill your fucking pets in front of your eyes. My wrath will be as extensive as it will be disproportionate, because I have no. Fucking. Sense. Of perspective. Do you idiots hear me?"''
* The Insanity Wolf ImageMacro sometimes depicts extreme acts of revenge on petty things. Here are some examples:[[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/665/174/001 1]] [[http://s2.quickmeme.com/img/2b/2be1126af2dabd6b1ead99e1bab3c6ac64a90a3c32bd53fdef447457cc19f0ec.jpg 2]] [[https://cdn.meme.am/instances/11566193/accidentally-gets-shot-destroys-galaxy-as-revenge.jpg 3]]
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOB1D3bQ29c The Irregular Show]]'', episode 3: Rigby refuses to get a grilled cheese for Benson, who [[spoiler: slaughters Rigby with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]. Rigby actually survives, but Bensons is arrested after [[RealityEnsues Mordecai called the cops]]]].
* This gets discussed without a hint of irony in the LetsPlay/{{Jayuzumi}} video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoK78bzqiJc&list=UU7vnNBIll_iWj31Yx55Ko2A "Baby Crying Trolling"]]. After the titular noise keeps playing and understandably annoys the teens in the lobby, many of the players say they want to smack the baby really hard or outright kill it. Of course, since this is the internet we're talking about it's unlikely they'd actually go through with it.
* In the "The Golden Sins Of Horror Games" episode of ''The WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}}'', Jimsaw has put Phillip Spengler of Microsoft's X-Box division in an ironic deathtrap, wherein he has to walk barefoot across a bed of razor-sharp broken Doritos to get a key to free himself from a device that will drown him in Mountain Dew, because his company has created and encouraged a culture of corporate thralldom and rampant, mindless consumerism. [[spoiler:Cliff Blezinski is behind the real trap, having given Jimsaw all the tools he needed to create the deathtrap to get him to lay a bed of razor-sharp broken Doritos between himself and freedom, all because he gave VideoGame/GearsOfWar3 an 8 out of 10 rating]].
* Thinking about hating on Music/JustinBieber? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mj7iF8O88LU Prepare to be hacked]] ''and'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dclowqELzMA reported to the CIA/FCC/FBI]]! This ended up [[{{Deconstruction}} backfiring]] in the former case, as Eric Douglace [[HoistByHisOwnPetard faced his own disproportionate retribution]] in the form of humiliation and InternetBackdraft, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QAC_KQeZrQ as well as having his life as he knew it ruined]].
* From the guys behind the "Mantage": Some people can't take a joke... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cS46WpexBJ0 and its goddamn hilarious]]
* In ''Bacon Flavoured Thoughts!'' by [[WebVideo/MatthewSantoro Matt Santoro]], Matt says that disliking bacon should be punishable by death.
* This basically Master Zen's arc in ''Series/{{Noob}}''. He ended up in jail and hence lost his command of the Noob guild due to his own HairTriggerTemper (though he blames it on the guildmate whose act of idiocy caused him to commit AccidentalMurder in real life). When he escapes and wants the guild command back, everyone prefers [[OnlySaneMan Arthéon's]] command over his. As retaliation, he kindaps Arthéon's player in the webseries version, attempts to kill Omega Zell and Sparadrap's players in the comic version and [[spolier:frames Gaea for the act that causes Fantöm to be permanently deleted, turning their whole faction against them]] in all versions of the story.
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, being the universal ButtMonkey that he is, suffers this often. Creator/VincentPrice killed him for insulting ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'', God hit him with lightning for deciding that ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' portrayal of him was better than ''Film/TheTenCommandments'' one, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick makes a habit of chloroforming him, and Douchey (a parodical StrawFan) makes his life a living hell in retribution for occasional errors in his reviews.
* From ''Website/TheOnion'': [[http://www.theonion.com/articles/chinese-class-clown-executed,6109 Chinese Class Clown Executed]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv9wYnFSmik Nobody honks at]] [[VideoGame/{{Prototype}} Alex Mercer]]! Or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkVDwYVMWK4&feature=channel outbids him for a limited edition panda he was going to give his little brother for his birthday]].
* This is the ''only'' kind of retribution in WebVideo/ShinyObjectsVideos.
* ''Website/SpaceBattlesDotCom'' once was temporarily brought down... [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/todays-outage-was-brought-to-you-by-the-letters-d-m-c-and-by-the-number-a.280447/ by a DMCA over a single, seemingly innocuous photo of a toucan.]]
* ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'':
** In "Toad's Mistake 3", Toad eats some Sara Lee Cheesecake, a dish that Franchise/{{Shrek}} [[TrademarkFavoriteFood eats constantly]]. Shrek chases him while holding a knife, gives him a swirly, craps on him, and murders him in a blender.
** Principal Steinbeck once gave Toad a violent beating all over a paper ball.
** In "Black Yoshi's Job", when Black Yoshi [[BabysittingEpisode has to babysit Bowser Junior]], he pulls out his gun and shoots Junior's toys when Junior makes him play with one tiny dinosaur against his many bigger ones. He also threatens to pull out his gun again when Junior won't let him play with his ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' toy, and even shoots Toad when they play doctor.
** In "The Call of Duty Problem!", Bowser Junior kills Black Yoshi in a game of ''Franchise/CallOfDuty'', then [[TooDumbToLive is dumb enough to tell him his address]]. Black Yoshi responds by destroying Junior's UsefulNotes/XboxOne and stealing his Thomas toy.
** In "Black Yoshi's VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3!", when Mario buys Black Yoshi a ''Call of Duty: Black Ops 3'' UsefulNotes/WiiU bundle[[note]]which does not exist in real life and was created solely for the video[[/note]] instead of the [[UsefulNotes/Playstation4 PS4]] bundle, Black Yoshi destroys the Wii U by shooting it with a crossbow and threatens to kill Mario if he doesn't get him the [=PS4=] bundle.
** In "Jeffy's Mistake!", both Jeffy and Black Yoshi fell victim to this. The former destroyed the latter's UsefulNotes/XboxOne by tossing it out a three-story window after dying in a game of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'', and the latter tied up the former and stuffed a grenade in his mouth for doing so.
* In a youtube video called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQLqU5yX8Xo "Singing Session with The Great Samuel"]] the titular Samuel forces two people (Nitrotech and Solaris respectively) to sing under the threat of their steam getting hacked.
** In the same video, Samuel says this to Solaris:
-->Slam Jam Sam:[[spoiler:Solaris, you shut the ''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]'' up while Nitro is singing. If I hear ''you'' cutting Nitrotech while he's singing...''I will fucking kill you.'']]
* In the video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB7Gz9toQm8 "Toad's Mistake" by heymarley88]], after [[Characters/SuperMarioBrosMarioAndFriends Toad]] eats one of Yoshi's apples, Yoshi stuffs Toad in a giant French horn and [[BrownNote plays it]], puts him in a blender, attacks him with a [[{{BFS}} giant knife]], and shoves him in household appliances.
* Similarly, apparently Captain Falcon of ''VideoGame/FZero'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSAL5VyQTMQ hates being hit by distracted people]].
* ''VideoGame/Touhou}}'': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-Eq5hehTNE Koishi Sings a Frightful Song in the Frightful Space Shuttle]], a remix of Koishi's theme where she gets sent into deep space by Suika for [[spoiler:drawing Suika/Yuugi doujin.]]
* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, this is pretty much standard practice, which can't be too surprising, given that most of the stories involve several hundred emotionally-overcharged teen superbeings, many of whom believe ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer.
** Overclock plotted to cause Tennyo to kill all her friends and be driven insane. Her crime? She ate the last of his favorite cereal in the cafeteria one morning.
** Martial arts is one of the standard Physical Education classes at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]]. Counterpoint (power mimic with awesome powers and centuries of experience as a fighter) spars against Jobe (ordinary baseline powers but a genius with bio-weapons). Jobe wins by fighting dirty, but what happens on the mat stays on the mat, right? Not with the god of disproportionate retribution, Counterpoint. He pummels Jobe mercilessly. Does Jobe tell the authorities? No, he retaliates with his own disproportionate retribution by dropping a biowarfare weapon in their food. When Counterpoint recovers...
** [[SuperVillain Strega's]] daughter is kidnapped by a secret society based in France. She then bombs the headquarters, captures Paris and holds the city hostage, and promises a invasion of Europe greater than UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.
* In ''Podcasts/WelcomeToNightVale'', our Narrator Cecil gets so upset over the fact that [[StalkerWIthACrush his beloved Carlos]] had a haircut, that he reads out Telly the Barbers physical attributes and location, apparently hoping that a lynch-mob would form over that the hot, new guy’s hair being cut.
-->''What treacherous barber should agree to such depravity? Who takes mere money, or even soulless joy, in depriving our small community of such a simple, but important, act as luridly admiring Carlos’s stunning coif?''
** In a later episode Telly is reported to have been seen living in the wastes outside town, giving haircuts to cacti and holding Carlos' hair in his hands and wailing at the sky, which Cecil considers a just fate. It is unclear if he was driven out, or if he came to realize the magnitude of his sin and exiled himself. Either is possible.
* Several cases from the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}, as well as their ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' [[Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries series]]:
** LetsPlay/SimonLane, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6anRWwdaS7s&list=FLnAULwFjWcBDe1ixfyPPrPQ&index=1 during the trip to E3]], shoves LetsPlay/LewisBrindley off a boat, after he and LetsPlay/DuncanJones set sail and cause the wifi to disconnect on Simon's laptop, inadvertently ruining his game of ''VideoGame/DiabloIII''. Lewis ends up losing his glasses as a result.
** During ''Hole Diggers'', Simon kills Duncan with his Atomic Disassembler for trying to continue with the golf course, even though it's not really possible or ideal.
** During ''Shadow Of Israphel'', Simon suffocates [[spoiler:Strongman_Bruno]] in a tree, simply because [[spoiler:he was cheated out of a strength contest]].
** After LetsPlay/KimRichards gets angry at LetsPlay/{{Sjin}} for betraying her to Sips, he decides to make a sword specifically for killing her, naming it the "Kimslayer".
** During LetsPlay/{{Sips}}'s ''VideoGame/TroubleInTerroristTown'' series, LetsPlay/{{Turpster}} commits RDM on a frequent basis, breaking the rules and eventually pressing LetsPlay/LewisBrindley's BerserkButton (video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIX_wFKZvF0&list=UUD4INvKvy83OXwAkRjaQKtw#t=487 here]]), causing him to vow to kill Turps in the next round, irrespective of either's allegiance. What happens ''next'' is the DisproportionateRetribution. After he makes good on his threat and it turns out Turps was innocent, people understandably try to take him down. In the ensuing bloodbath, Lewis guns down Sips in self-defence, then fires on [[LetsPlay/HatFilms Trott]] unprovoked and kills him too before finally being taken down. Turps calls him out on this, and the HypocriticalHumour is lampshaded when [[LetsPlay/HatFilms Smiffy]] calls it "the worst case of RDM I have ever seen".
-->'''Sips:''' Lewis has been more effective than all the traitors combined this round.
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'':
** The supervillain Accord's SuperOCD is so strong that he wants to have a character executed for intruding on his meeting unannounced.
** After [[MadBomber Bakuda]] triggered, she held her university hostage with bombs for not giving her a perfect grade. Later, after the Undersiders beat her, her [[{{Narcissist}} ego]] is so bruised that she carries out a bombing campaign against [[MisplacedRetribution random Brockton Bay citizens]], killing ''fifty people''.
** [[WasOnceAMan Mannequin]] tries to kill Skitter and murders several of the people she's protecting because she had the gall to save people from [[PersonOfMassDestruction Shatterbird]], and when she defeats him he comes back with [[PlayingWithFire Burnscar]] and kills dozens, making a point to [[KickTheDog kill parents in front of their kids]].
* Oh hey, you put a regular axe through my car? Okay. I'll just spend my entire savings putting a giant axe through ''your'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tT6biqC-QC0 car]].
* There's a video floating around of a girl who's supposedly pissed off that her boyfriend plays so many video games, so she takes his UsefulNotes/XBox360 outside and tries to bust it up with a golf club-''tries'' being the operative word, because she has no idea how to swing the thing, so it really amounts more to gentle taps; her initial careless toss to the ground does more damage. Then comes the follow-up video, where the boyfriend objects to her mistreatment of his UsefulNotes/XBox, so he takes her laptop and shows her how to ''really'' swing, demolishing the computer's screen in one blow.
* Don't question Dr. Noooo's medical skill or insult him in any way, otherwise you might end up like the soldier in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoV1ZDUk5jc
* Don't pay rent in Toki's house, [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Madame-Seamstress-Rules-I-Giselle-s-Unpaid-Rent-302099145 she puts a curse on you]] or [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Bye-Bye-Giselle-300979379 she sues you and leaves you homeless]]. However, this is arguable, seeing as Giselle wasn't nice a person and had probably taken advantage of Toki's mental illnesses (the fact that Toki never did seem to remember why she let her live there in the first place supports this), in which case she probably had it coming, doublly so since [[TooDumbToLive she was warned beforehand]].
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': In Volume 1, [[ButtMonkey Jaune]] is being regularly bullied by Cardin everywhere he goes. [[GenkiGirl Nora]] suggests breaking Cardin's legs in retribution.
* [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP]]-[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1002 1002]]: Litter and you lose your fingers. Steal and you lose your [[NoKillLikeOverKill eyes, tongue, hands, and ears]]. Murder and you'll get a FateWorseThanDeath.
* Happens in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' with Yami quite often, who has a habit of mind-crushing people for trivial reasons.
-->'''Yami''': Bullying is just wrong. Destroying people's brains with magical powers is a-okay!
* Happens in ''LetsPlay/{{Thescatsbury}}'' In the first episode of Skyrim Randomness, A little girl points out that Scats is naked, so he [[spoiler:attempts to murder her]]
