->''"This one is for my father who picked the shiitake!\\
This is for my mother who sent them!\\
This is for my cute little brother and sister!\\
And this is for Kuririn!"''
-->-- '''Krauser II''', ''Manga/DetroitMetalCity''

Whenever the hero really starts [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge beating the snot out of the bad guys]], he'll start dedicating each strike either for a [[KickTheDog particular action the villain has done]], or for [[ItsPersonal someone special to the hero that the villain has killed or threatened]].

It will often culminate to the "final blow" (often the killing blow) being dedicated to what's really important overall--or not; sometimes the last blow is just for the person's own satisfaction, or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking something trivial]]. Or for nothing at all, and just for the hell of it, because the attacker wants to. Another common pattern is that the earlier blows are dedicated to other people, and the final blow is "This is for me!"

Compare PunctuatedPounding. Even villains can get in on the action thanks to MoralMyopia.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Anime/AfroSamurai'', TheRival, Kuma/[[spoiler:Jinnosuke]] yells out characters who died as a direct result of their meeting our AntiHero. Only 3 of these characters were named previously, so we're apparently expected to know who Chiro and Zenkichi are.
** Given their past, [[spoiler:they were probably members of the dojo who died in the same fight that maimed Jinnosuke.]]
* In the ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' light novel ''Drugs and Dominoes,'' Luck Gandor beats the hell out of [[spoiler:Gustavo]] with a chair, announcing as he does that each blow is for a Gandor business or employee attacked by the [[spoiler:Runorata under Gustavo's command]]. One of the more amusing items on the list was actually his own ''head'', which one [[spoiler:Runorata-hired]] druggie had sliced off some time before… Er, [[{{Immortality}} he got better]].
** Dune, one of Ladd's goons, gets a really nasty one from [[AxCrazy Claire]], after [[spoiler:he gleefully reveals that he killed the man who mentored Claire as a conductor]]. Protip? [[TooDumbToLive Do not piss off Claire Stanfield.]]
---> '''Ladd''': Oh, Dune, [[CrossesTheLineTwice you poor faceless bastard!]]
* In ''Manga/DGrayMan'' General Cross shoots the level 4 Akuma a lot and tells it he fired one bullet for every one of his allies it killed, and the rest were for ruining his coat.
* ''Manga/DetroitMetalCity'': Krauser II gives this speech as he humps death metal legend Jack III Dark on stage, randomly dedicating the last one to [[Manga/DragonBall Kuririn]]…
** Pretty much the same thing happened in Manga/{{Gintama}}, only more randomly. Kagura kicks a turtle alien at the beach, shouting, "Stand up! That was for Krillin! Next is…" She gets interrupted before she can go on.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}''
** Even though he doesn't say it himself, when [[Anime/DigimonSavers Masaru]] [[spoiler:has Kurata at his mercy, his friends tell him to deal the killing blow for all Digimon that Kurata has killed. Masaru and [=ShineGreymon=] Burst Mode are happy to oblige.]]
** When [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Yamato]] tries to fight Taichi to [[MoreThanMindControl "clear his doubts"]], Taichi responds with punches for all the Digimon who had committed {{heroic sacrifice}}s for the Chosen thus far, believing that Yamato's actions dishonored what they gave their lives for.
* When Goku begins beating the hell out of Nappa in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', each blow is dedicated to one of the heroes that Nappa has killed.
** Trunks shouting "THIS IS FOR GOHAN!" to Android 18 before completely destroying her when he returns to his timeline after [[TookALevelInBadass taking several levels in badass]] during the Cell saga.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** During the Phantom Lord arc, [[TheHero Natsu]] beats up [[TheDragon Gajeel]] (who is coated with impenetrable metal scales, no less), dedicating the blows to all the people in Fairy Tail who Gajeel and his guild hurt (Levy, Jet, Droy, Nab, Macao, Makarov, Erza, and Lucy), as well as for destroying the Fairy Tail guildhall.
** Done again in the Grand Magic Games arc by [[TookALevelInKindness Laxus]] against [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty Team Raven Tail]], beating up the guild members who hurt and/or humiliated Wendy, Carla, Gray, and Lucy. Humorously, when he gets to the one member who didn't do anything to Fairy Tail, he basically says "I got nothing" and blasts him anyway.
* ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' plays this straight when Kenshiro kills Jagi: he uses a finishing move which consists of four blows dedicated to each person whose life was ruined by Jagi (including a young boy who lost his little brother). There's a more symbolic version later when Kenshiro begins using the abilities of fallen allies against their killers.
* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic''. In the FinalBattle of "The Second Raid", Kaname turns up just in time to snap Sousuke out of his HeroicBSOD. {{Tsundere}} that she is, this is done by beating him up instead of the LoveConfession that she originally planned.
-->'''Kaname''': This is for the pain in my heart! ''[BAM!]'' This is for the pain in my body! ''[BAM!]'' And this is for… THE PAIN IN MY SOOOOUL! ''[BAM!!]''
* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', Issei delivers this to [[spoiler:Vali]] during their first real fight. This being [[LovableSexManiac Issei]], he delivers each blow on behalf of the breasts of every girl in his harem. The result is equal parts [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hilarious]] and [[MomentOfAwesome awesome]].
* Occurs early on in ''Manga/InuYasha'', when it looks like Sesshomaru has killed Kagome. Unsurprisingly, this pisses Inuyasha off, to the point where he actually lands multiple hits on Sesshomaru, [[ScreamingWarrior yelling all the while]].
-->'''Inuyasha''': That was for mother. And this--this is for Kagome! ''[hits him again]''
** Of course, this ends up being subverted, as neither Sesshomaru nor Kagome find it terribly impressive; Kagome, because she was still trying to dig her way out of a pile of dissolved demon bones, and Sesshomaru, because [[AloofOlderBrother Sesshomaru]].
--->'''Sesshomaru''': If I'd known that was all it would take to get you to fight seriously, I would have killed her long ago.
* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' part 6, Hermes' revenge against her sister's murderer goes into this.
--> '''Hermes''': This kick was for Gloria. And this one is also for Gloria. And the next one is also for Gloria. And the next one. And the one after that. And the next one, and next one… '''They're ''all'' for Gloria!'''
* ''Anime/{{Mazinger}}'':
** ''Anime/MazingerZ'': In the manga, as the main team are making preparations for the FinalBattle, Kouji declares--[[HotBlooded loudly, of course]]--that, for his poor murdered granddad, for everyone who's been hurt, and for the peace of Japan… THIS TIME HE'LL DESTROY DR. HELL FOR GOOD!
** ''Anime/GreatMazinger'': In the Gosaku Ota manga chapters, after [[spoiler:Prof. Kabuto's death]], Tetsuya [[spoiler:makes a kamikaze dive together with Great Mazinger]], screaming "This is for my father! And for all my friends!"
** ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'': Duke tells him several times when an enemy has got him ''extremely'' pissed off:
--->'''Duke (as [[UnstoppableRage he ripped to pieces]] [[{{Robeast}} a Saucer Beast]] after the Vegans killed one of his oldest friends)''': This is for my friend!\\
'''Duke''': But Gandal! It was your mistake coming here! For my parents… And for all citizens of Fleed… I will kill you!
** In the ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' movie ''Deathmatch!! Great General of Darkness'', Kouji delivers one to the titular General, punctuating each strike with the titular mech's Kaiser Knuckle before finishing it (and him) off with a point-blank Turbo Smasher Punch.
* ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'', when Megaman is taking on Flashman in Axess Episode 4 for hurting Roll as he uses a Bamboo Sword against him.
---> '''Megaman''': ''[SLASH!]'' This is for Roll!\\
''[SLASH!]'' This is for Maylu!\\
''[SLASH!]'' This is for me!
* In the final episode of ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid'', Nagasumi unleashes a barrage of punches--naturally, he dedicates each one to San.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', when Choji uses his DeadlyUpgrade, he effortlessly knocks Jirobo aside, saying it's for eating his last potato chip. He then steps on the downed Jirobo's hand, saying that it is for calling him worthless and fat, and then delivers a lethal punch to him for having insulted his best friend, Shikamaru.
%%* Done with Blade from ''Manga/{{NEEDLESS}}''.
* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Nami strikes Nezumi with her staff, saying that it was for shooting Nojiko and wrecking Bellemere's tangerine trees. In some abridged version, Luffy dedicates punches to Italian ice cream and Cheerios.
* In ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', lead character Ryoma Echizen goes through this dialogue in a tennis match against then-antagonist Jin Akutsu. Even though it is tennis, to be fair, the first payback is a drive volley at point-blank range.
* A couple of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' examples:
** The Shishihokodan Arc, centered around a ki-attack that gets more powerful the more depressed one is, has a number of scuffling sessions between Ranma and Ryoga, particularly when Ranma first tumbles on to its secret and they try to out-mope one another--for a while they seem evenly matched, but Ryoga soon takes the upper hand, as his litany of misery starts to take on a personal element of long-held resentment.
-->'''Ryoga''': This is because I always lose to you! ''[blast]''\\
This is because you stole my girlfriend! ''[blast]''\\
This is because you make fun of me for having no sense of direction! ''[blast]''
** Not too much later Ranma himself got to do it to his father Genma, who believed his son had finally surpassed him in skill--the most significant aspect of this being (to Genma) an end to the days in which he could beat up his weaker child and eat all of their food himself, as apparently happened on a regular basis during Ranma's formative years (…and beyond). Ranma reassures him that he holds no grudge, and he ''certainly'' [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial wouldn't think to take advantage of the situation…]] and of course we immediately [[DescriptionCut cut to the sparring lot]]: "And this is for the rice bowl! This is for the pastrami!" [etc.]
* In ''Manga/SlamDunk'', during a fight between a vicious gang and the basketball team, Sakuragi does this to the biggest guy who punched almost everyone there. He dedicates a furious punch for every one of his hurt teammates, but when it's his turn to "avenge" Rukawa, his main rival, he only gives a little pinch, to follow up with a punch for one of the bench. Everyone looks at the scene amazed, but, naturally, Rukawa is not very amused.
* In ''Anime/TransformersVictory'', the Beastforce does this collectively to Star Saber, for whom they blame Deathcobra's death (even though he was actually killed by [[spoiler:Hellbat]], who blamed Holi and Clipper).
* The titular character of ''[[Manga/TsujiuraSanToChupacabra Tsujiura-san to Chupacabra]]'' does this while beating up some would-be perverts. She declares each blow in dedication to the fossilized "Mongolian Death Worm" [[SuperGullible (actually an obvious fake, but don't tell her that)]] she had just bought and which they had destroyed, prompting the beatdown. The male protagonist Yuu, who had been beaten up by the thugs, hopes for a second that the last blow will be dedicated to him… but Tsujiura being Tsujiura, it's again for the Death Worm.
* In ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' when Van takes his revenge against the Zaibach pilots who destroyed his hometown and killed nearly everyone he cared about, as he kills them one by one he says:
-->'''Van''': This is for the Duke of Freid, this is for Balgus, and this is for Fanelia!
* Yami Yugi in ''Anime/YuGiOh'' does this ''with cards''. in one of his many moments of luck and heroic resolve, he draws a six card combo where each card represents a friend [[DeathIsCheap lost]] to the BigBad CousinOliver of the arc. Since there were more than 6 people lost, non-main characters were grouped with whichever main character they were closest to.
* Yusuke Urameshi from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' pulls this one in the Dark Tournament arc against [[MadScientist Dr. Ichigaki]]. He delivers a pounding and a ShoutOut for each person Ichigaki had hurt or done wrong, including the three martial arts students he had enslaved, their master whom he had given a terrible sickness, Kuwabara who had suffered grave injuries in trying to save the students from their enslavement (slightly played for laughs since he had thought of it on the spot, which Kawabata gets annoyed by), and then he wraps it up with "And the last one's for me… just for pissing me off!", along with the final, fiercest blow.
--> '''Yusuke:''' This is for those three! (triple kicks Ichigaki in the face) This is for their master! (punches Ichigaki) While I'm at it, this is for Kuwabara! (decks Ichigaki)
--> '''Kuwabara:''' What do you mean "while you're at it", dumbass...
--> '''Yusuke:''' And this... IS FOR ME! FOR JUST PISSING ME OFF!!! (smashes Ichigaki out of the arena)
* Played with in ''Manga/ZettaiShoujoSeiikiAmnesian'' chapter 2, where every strike is dedicated to the same person, Himeko.

* ''AudioPlay/TheUnfinishedSpellingErrorsOfBolkien'': During Sam's attack on the Tower of Cirith Ungol, he stabs one victim for every name he can remember. The orcs are noted to be relieved he didn't bring his address book.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In ''Comicbook/XMen: Manifest Destiny'' #1, Boom-Boom, having used a FriendingNetwork to research a villain who'd humiliated her, gets a rematch and starts dedicating the NonFatalExplosions she uses to knock the villain around:
-->'''Boom-Boom:''' ''[BOOM]'' This is for tricking me with a crappy superpower!\\
''[Boom]'' This is for being dumb enough to put damaging personal information on a website!\\
''[BOOM]'' And this is for having more inter-friends than me!
* At the climax of ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'', Apocalypse asks Nate if he has any last words.
-->'''Nate''': Four, in fact. [[MentorOccupationalHazard THIS IS FOR]] [[ParentalSubstitute FORGE!]]
* ''Comicbook/GlobalFrequency'' #10: The Frenchman, after tearing off the PsychoForHire's arm at the shoulder, beating him to death with it, and stuffing it into his mouth:
-->'''The Frenchman:''' And that's for stealing my girlfriend's book on biofeedback.
* ''ComicBook/{{Dinocorps}}'': Kayla, after she encounters Icks or Blix and shoots him dead:
--> '''Kayla''': "That's for Buzz!"
* During the GLA miniseries, ComicBook/SquirrelGirl reminds her squirrel army "that this" is for her squirrel sidekick, Monkey Joe, as they incapacitate the villain Machete. A bit of a subversion, as Machete had absolutely nothing to do with Monkey Joe's death, and the next panel has the ghost of Monkey Joe saying "Not like it's going to bring me back or anything."
* {{Deadpool}} did this quite often… [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Usually for something utterly unrelated to the target of his attacks]]. Shouting "And this is for the ''Valdez''!" while attacking Roxxon ('''not''' Exxon, the actual owners of the ''Valdez''), for example.
-->'''Deadpool (in Germany):''' This is for ''Normandy''! And this is for… uhm… for… Bridgitte Nielsen!\\
'''Dude in headlock:''' But she's not Ger--''aargh''!
** Turned around in an early arc. A mercenary with a grudge against Deadpool starts shooting him while Deadpool stalks toward him.
--->'''Merc:''' This is for Almodovar. ''[KRAK!]''\\
'''Merc:''' And this is for costing me my promotion. ''[KRAK!]''\\
'''Merc:''' And this for the night shift that keeps me from my wife and kids. ''[KRAK!]''\\
'''Merc:''' ''And this… ''this'' is for-- ''[notices Deadpool is right in front of him]'' --huh?\\
'''Deadpool:''' This--is for the heck of it! ''[PUNCH!]''
** And Deadpool got a truly awesome in during a time when he was the frozen north woods, throwing a rock at an owl whose incessant hooting was driving him insane...well, ''more'' insane. "Who? Who? DEADPOOL, THAT'S WHO! ''This is for biting that poor kid's Tootsie Pop when all he wanted was some advice!''"
* During Walt Simonson's ''[[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]'' run, Odin, Thor and Loki join forces against Surtur as the fire-demon attacked Asgard with the intent to bring about [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Ragnarok]].
-->'''Odin:''' For Asgard!\\
'''Thor:''' For Midgard!\\
'''Loki:''' For myself!
* The event comic ''Comicbook/{{Annihilation}}'' has this when Richard Rider kills Annihilus, whose Annihilation Wave previously destroyed the entire Nova Corps.
-->'''Nova''': ''[as he's tearing out Annihilus' insides]'' THIS IS FOR NOVA CORPS!
* In ''Comicbook/{{Fables}}'', Pinocchio uses this when he's tearing into [[spoiler:The Blue Fairy]]. He relates every single instance he almost had sex, as it's kind of hard to score when you're [[NotGrowingUpSucks stuck with the body of a 7-9 year old boy]].
** And, earlier, in the "March of the Wooden Soldiers" arc, you see a literal enraged MamaBear, in the thick of the fighting [[spoiler:against Gepetto's wooden soldier invasion force]] after her son was killed, screaming: "And this is for my Boo Bear, you ''monsters!''"
* As Rosemary Almond prepares to [[spoiler:shoot Adam Susan]] in ''Comicbook/{{V for Vendetta}}'', her mental monologue runs along these lines: "Yes, because my husband gave his life up working for you, and you don't even recognize me. Yes, because I had a life and a husband but you didn't care. Yes, because you played games with our lives, and they didn't matter to you, but they were all that we had. Yes. Yes."
* Hilarious non-violent example happens in a ''ComicStrip/{{Mafalda}}'' strip. Mafalda is a girl who ''hates'' soup with a reverence (to the point that she uses it as a curse). The following exchange happens:
-->'''Mafalda''': Who thinks of making soup in summer? ''No one!'' Only you think to make soup in summer!\\
'''Mother''': Am I original or not?\\
'''Mafalda''' (thinking): This one for giving arguments to the enemy. ''[gulp]'' This one for not knowing what to answer. ''[gulp]'' This one for…
* ''ComicBook/BeastsOfBurden'' when Orphan attacks the frog creature.
* ''Friendly Neighbourhood ComicBook/SpiderMan'', during the "Back in Black" timeframe: [[TookALevelInBadass Betty Brant]] rescues Flash and Peter from [[TheWormThatWalks Arrow]] by repeatedly blasting her with a shotgun. She underlines each shot with one of these, ending with [[ItMakesSenseInContext "And this is for making me afraid of toilets!"]]
* ''ComicBook/HackSlash'': "…and this is for my acorns."
* ''ComicBook/{{Gen13}}'': in one story arc Caitlin Fairchild became the [[OnlySaneMan only person on Earth]] unaffected by an insipid song that possessed mind-controlling qualities. Finally as she faced off against the creator of this mind-controlling song, she declared war against all bad music (in her opinion); "This is for Creed's 'With Arms Wide Open'! This is for the entire Oasis catalog! And this is for that 'Sunscreen' speech song! I mean, what's that all about?"
* In one issue of ''ComicBook/TransformersGeneration2'', after [[spoiler:Red Alert and Mirage]] are killed in battle, the surviving Autobots invoke them as they're kicking Cybertronian butt.
* [[AlliterativeName Emil Eagle]] once tricked GyroGearloose out of his clientele. When said clientele figured out his tricks, they started beating him. One said it was for Gyro. Another one said it was for trying to trick them. And yet another said it was for himself.
* When Zander Rice has ComicBook/{{X 23}} strapped to an operating table to extract her claws for bonding with adamantium one at a time ''without anasthesia'', he makes a point before beginning of telling her, "This is for my father." For the record, Laura didn't even ''do'' anything to Rice's father, {{Wolverine}} killed him escaping Alkali Lake. He's taking it out on ''her'' because [[RevengeByProxy she's Logan's clone and genetic daughter]].
* ComicBook/GodzillaTheHalfCenturyWar does this as Ota is beating the shit out of [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[SmugSnake Deverich]].
-->'''Ota Murakami:''' Colonel Schooler. My friends. All those cities burned and lives lost!
* In ''Comicbook/FinalCrisis: Rogue's Revenge'', when the Rogues finally confront Inertia.
-->'''Heat Wave''': This isn't for Kid Flash.\\
'''Weather Wizard''': This isn't for my son.\\
'''Captain Cold''': No. This is for one $%@#$@-up year.\\
''[The Rogues blast Inertia with their weapons, killing him.]''
* In ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'', when Franchise/{{Superman}} fights the [[AlienInvasion J'ai]] for second time, he thinks: "This time, I'm going to win the skirmish… for Xonn… and for Krypton!"
* In Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story ''Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns'', as Linda Danvers [[spoiler:pummels the Fatalist]], she yells she is beating him on Kara's behalf.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* During the climactic battle of the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4214776/1/Screaming_Blue_Murder Screaming Blue Murder]], [[TheStarscream Starscream]] finally gets his shot at Fatigue, the tractor-mech who beat him most of the way to death while he was drugged back in chapter five or so, and calls out, "this is for ''Warp''," while destroying one eye, because the drugrunners Fatigue fronts for messed with Skywarp pretty badly, "and for ''Sepp,''" on the other, meaning Forceps, the OC surgeon who picked Screamer up off the street and rebuilt him against all common sense, and who Fatigue left paralyzed, and then finishes with the traditional, "and for ''me.''"
* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': As slapping Gendo, Rei says:
-->'''Rei'''(coldly): That […] was for Shinji.
* ''Fanfic/HigherLearning'': Before starting the FinalBattle, Asuka shouts: “And, Shinji, this is for you!”
* ''FanFic/MyLittleMagesTheNightmaresReturn'': When Rainbow Dash is fighting [[DarkActionGirl Nightshade]], she shouts out the names of every person Nightshade killed while [[PunctuatedPounding hitting her]].
* During the FinalBattle of the ''[[Fanfic/PonyPOVSeriesChaosVerse Chaos Verse]]'', Discord does this while hitting [[spoiler:[[BigBad Nightmare Phobia]]]] with major attacks, saying that each one is for [[spoiler:one of the construct ponies Phobia killed earlier in the fight]].
* ''Fanfic/DeathNoteEquestria'': When Twilight discovers that [[spoiler:Fluttershy]] is the Second Kira, she expresses her horror at the fact that she killed innocents unprovoked, something Twilight herself [[EvenEvilHasStandards has only done when desperate]], by hitting her repeatedly, naming each pony killed while doing so. Of course, then she ends it by saying "And this is for me" and kissing [[spoiler:Fluttershy]] in order to cast a healing spell and erasing all the damage.
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/10485/32/shisno-chronicles-friendship-is-magic/chronicles-promise-the-return-of-harmony-part-2 In this]] ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic, one character delivers this while attacking the bad guy. Notably, the pony most important to the deliverer isn't mentioned in the final blow, but in the second-to-final one, which is stronger than the final blow.
* An unusual example in the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8397654/1/4-Broken-Heart-Broken-Mind "Broken Heart, Broken Mind"]]: a resurrected Eric (aka Synthodrone 901) sent an army of Kim-clone robots against Kim and Ron. Kim--earlier drugged by Eric into angrily breaking up with Ron (less than a month before their wedding)--had recovered from the drugs but still felt guilty as she recalled the many times she put Ron down or took him for granted over the years. During the battle, with each Kim-Bot she took down, she would list one of those incidents: "That's for not believing Yori when she said that Stoppable-san was a great hero," or "That's for when I tried to change him with that stupid haircut he didn't want in the first place."
* ''Fanfic/JusticeLeagueOfEquestria'': During the FinalBattle of ''Mare of Steel'', Rainbow Dash/Supermare--in the midst of an UnstoppableRage-induced NoHoldsBarredBeatdown--does this to ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}, claiming each blow is for one of his victims.

* ''Fanfic/CyclesUponCycles'' has Kasumi's PreMortemOneLiner to [[spoiler: Admiral [[MadScientist Daro'Xen]]]]:
-->'''Kasumi''': This is for [[PlayingWithSyringes what you tried to do]] to Tali, you bosh'tet.
* {{Creator/madsthenerdygirl}}'s ''Fanfic/MCURewrites'': ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/11613921 Black Widow]]'', [[spoiler: Natasha Romanoff gives this to Madame B, the woman in charge of the Red Room who brainwashed her to become a ruthless assassin, before killing her.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Natasha:''' This is for Yelena! (strikes Madame B into a wall) This is for the man you made me shoot!

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'' Franchise/WonderWoman lays a beatdown on Badra, dedicating each blow to her family and friends.
-->Wonder Woman would have been surprised at her own energy, if she had had the time. Lately, she had been labelling her punches. "This, for my mother," she said, smashing Badra with a left to the chin. "This, for my daughter," she pronounced, sinking her right into the villainess's stomach. "This, for the sisterhood," she declared, with a double uppercut to Badra's chops.\\
Diana decided against trying to itemize the members of the Justice Society or Infinity, Inc., and even ruled out Power Girl. But it was forgiveable, under the circumstances.\\
"This one is for me," she said, and swung her balled fist forward.
* In ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/7230538/chapters/16413640 Fall of the Black Canary, return of the Arrow]]'', during Oliver and Malcolm's final battle:

For Laurel, Thea, Tommy, my mother, my father, Walter, Sara, Nyssa, all the people in The Glades, and the boy I once was before the Gambit. The one who thought of you as family.

* In Disney's ''Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves'', (the final film in the Aladdin trilogy), bandits storm the castle and disrupt Aladdin and Jasmine's wedding. The heroes do the best they can to defeat the interlopers, however, and Princess Jasmine gets in one dandy sucker punch on one of them, announcing coldly, "That was for ruining my wedding."
* In ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'', Astrid does this to Hiccup [[RuleOfThree three times]]. All of them begin with her punching him ("That's for (something bad)!"), but while the first one had more punches as a follow-up, the second and third [[SlapSlapKiss end with a kiss]] ( the second one on the cheek, then quickly on the mouth, and the third one with a slow kiss on the mouth).
* ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' has a slight variation when Rocky the rooster returns to the chickens after leaving. Ginger first slaps him, saying "That was for leaving," then follows up by going to AlmostKiss him, finishing, [[SlapSlapKiss "And this is for coming back…"]]
* At the end of ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' as Anya is [[spoiler:killing Rasputin by crushing the vial that keeps him alive under her shoes]]:

* ''{{Film/Walking With Dinosaurs}}'':

* Titan delivers one in ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}''
-->'''Titan''': This is for stealing my girlfriend! This one's for Space-Dad making a fool out of me! And Megamind, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint this one's for Space-Stepmom!]] ''You lied to her!''

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Played with (along with many other action tropes) in ''Film/LastActionHero''. Jack Slater does the whole AndThisIsFor routine, except "This is for blowing up my ex-wife's house!" is followed by a gentle slap on the hand. However, when he gets to the part regarding his daughter's black eye, he attempts to hurl the culprit through a wall.
* During the prom scene in ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou,'' Bianca does this to Joey.

* In ''Film/BatmanForever'', Robin's reaction upon finding Two-Face and expressing what comes very close to UnstoppableRage over his family being murdered:

''[punch]'' My brother!\\
AND THIS IS FOR ME! ''[knocks him backwards [[spoiler:and towards a cliff]]]''

''[Punches Priscilla]'' That's for hurting Janey at Preston's party!\\
''[Punches Les]'' That's for… being really weird!\\
''[Punches Les' [[Film/AmericanBeauty plastic bag]]]'' …I'm not sure what that was for.
* Spoofed in Creator/WoodyAllen's movie GagDub, ''Film/WhatsUpTigerLily''
* A more subtle version appears in ''Film/GoldenEye'' as [[spoiler:Bond faces off with movie villain and former friend Alec Trevelyan. Earlier in the film Alec had referenced a small tradition they shared during a dangerous mission: "For England, James?" "For England, Alec." As Alec is about to die, he says again, "For England, James?" Bond responds, "No. For me."]]
** Ironically, early in the film, M warns Bond against employing this trope when she sends him on a mission where he is sure to cross paths with the man who presumably [[spoiler:murdered Trevelyan in the film's prologue. "Avenging Alec Trevelyan will not bring him back."]]
* Appears (doubled, in fact) even earlier in ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'':
-->'''Mishka''': And this ''[prepares to throw knife at Bond]'' …for my brother! ''[charges towards Bond, who opens the door behind him]''\\
'''Film/JamesBond''': ''[Throws his own knife and impales him]'' And ''that's'' for 009!
* Villainous example in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'' as TheDragon Stamper is beating up Bond during the climax:
-->'''Stamper''': This one's for [[BigBad Carver]]! ''[punches Bond]''\\
And this one's for [[LikeASonToMe Kaufman]]! ''[punches Bond again]''
* [[BadassNormal Samwise Gamgee]], the [[LetsGetDangerous normally]] non-threatening gardener in ''Film/{{The Lord of the Rings}},'' even did this, dedicating Orc kills as he scaled a tower to rescue Frodo:
-->'''Sam:''' This is for Mr. Frodo! ''[stab]''\\
And this is for the Shire! ''[slice]''\\
And this is for my old Gaffer! ''[thrust]''
** Aragorn's last words before charging into battle at the Black Gates were, "For Frodo."

* In ''Film/{{Hook}}'' the title villain, in an effort to [[MoreThanMindControl turn Peter Pan's son, Jack, against Pan]], has the boy do this while smashing clocks for things like not letting him blow bubbles in his chocolate milk. (At least at first. They get more serious later on.)
* In ''Film/TheFugitive'', Dr. Richard Kimble asks "Why Helen?", while beating up [[spoiler:Dr. Charles Nichols,]] the man who engineered his wife's death.
* In ''Film/DunstonChecksIn'', as Robert Grant sends Lord Rutledge sliding across a table at the end of their fight, he says, "And this is for tying up my son!"
* The adaptation of ''Film/TheSpirit'': [[spoiler:To demonstrate just how dangerous his latest chemical formula can be even if the temperature if off by "one or two degrees," The Octopus squirts some into a cat named Muffin's dish, which upon consumption causes it to dissolve, save for its eyeballs. Once breaking free, The Spirit begins to punch him across the room]]:
-->'''The Spirit:''' This is for Sand! ''[PUNCH]''\\
This is for me! ''[PUNCH]''\\
And this is for MUFFIN!! ''[SUPER KICK]''
* The Rifftrax for ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' featured the angry Whomping Willow.
-->'''Mike (as Willow):''' This is for letting a ''million'' Japanese beetles get under me.
* A hilarious example from the film ''Film/{{Mannequin}}'': "Switcher -- this one's for my Mama!" POW!!!
* Commentary on ''Film/TheMummyReturns'' reveals that Ardeth originally had the line "That was for Horus!" (his falcon) after killing Lock-Nah, who had just shot the little falcon. Sadly, it was deleted because of fear that moronic viewers wouldn't have been paying attention to the one previous time he says the falcon's name.
** It still shows up in the novelization.
* In ''Film/TheGodfatherPartII'', Vito's father was murdered by a Sicilian mafia boss, Don Ciccio, when Vito was a child. He escaped to the U.S., became an influental crime boss there, and eventually returned to Sicily to meet Don Ciccio.
-->'''Don Ciccio:''' What was your father's name?\\

'''Don Ciccio:''' You'll have to speak up. I can't hear you\\
'''Vito:''' My father's name was Antonio Andolini… and this is for you! ''[stabs him]''

* This trope is in two Steven Segal movies:

--->'''Mason''': That's for my wife. Fuck you and die.
** ''Film/OnDeadlyGround'': Forrest Taft shoots Michael Jennings down into oil in favor of Masu:
--->'''Forrest''': I'd shoot you, but I don't wanna dirty my bullets…\\

* ''Film/LethalWeapon2'': Martin Riggs says the names of all his friends and loved ones killed by the South Africans as he [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill empties his Beretta into a mook.]]
* A much nicer version appears in Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk:

** Parodied in the ''Mad'' Magazine spoof, where Indy is beating up the truck full of German soldiers:
--->'''Indy:''' And this is for sinking the Titanic!\\
'''Soldier:''' Wait! That was an iceberg!\\
'''Indy:''' Maybe, but who are people going to believe? A Nazi or an American history professor?
* ''Film/FreeWilly 2'': Jesse's younger half-brother Elvis befriends Willy's little brother Littlespot. None of the whales are actually harmed, just endangered for a while but Elvis still gets in a "And that's for Littlespot!" as he kicks a bad guy into the water.

One of the group is IRA terrorist Hourigan, who repeatedly taunts Murphy; at the end of the training Murphy shoots Hourigan in the kneecaps, telling him it's for some British soldiers he'd killed in an ambush. "But this one Hourigan, this one's for me." ''(shoots him in the head)''
* In ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010'', Clancy Brown's character declares "This is for my son!" as he throws a molotov cocktail into the gas-soaked warehouse Freddy Krueger is hiding in.
* ''Film/TheAvengers2012'': Tony rattles off a list of the people Loki made the mistake of crossing, ending with this:
-->'''Tony:''' There's one more guy you pissed off. [[spoiler:[[SacrificialLion name's Phil.]]]]
* ''Film/MenInBlack3'': After Jay tells the younger version of Kay [[spoiler:that he came back to the past to prevent his death. Kay punches him once for not telling him and again ''for telling him the truth''. Yeah he's a complex guy.]]
* ''Film/GoneInSixtySeconds2000'': Memphis arrives at Calitri dock just a mere twelve minutes after the deadline in delivering the last car slightly damaged (though nothing that couldn't be fixed). Calitri, regardless, orders Memphis to be killed. However once a teammate manges to save him. Memphis charges right into Calitri base and starts whaling on him.
-->'''Memphis''': ''[Punches Calitri]'' The first mistake was having a kid to do your dirty work.\\
''[Punches again]'' The second was that it was ''my'' kid brother.\\
''[Kicks him]'' But you just made ''the biggest mistake'' by trying to kill me!
* Right before they attack Lawrence in ''Film/RideWithTheDevil'', Quantrill makes a rousing speech to the men, telling them to remember [[spoiler:their female relatives who died in the collapse of a Kansas City jail]]. "To Lawrence!"
* Happens at the end of ''Film/MissingInAction2TheBeginning'' in which Braddock puts the beatdown on Colonel Yin for killing Lester (with a slight neck snap) and Frankie (belly punch and grabbing his stomach). And finally finishes him off by detonating a bomb in the cabin, blowing him up. "And this is for me."
* In ''Film/PitchBlack'' Riddick cuts off all the lights on the ship prior to taking off, because he wants to kill as many of the creatures as possible when they gather around the ship. [[spoiler:It's implied it's in honor of Fry.]]

* In ''Film/{{Machete}}'', April Booth says, [[YouKilledMyFather "In the name of my father."]] before shooting [=MacLaughlin=].

* Subverted in ''Film/{{Ransom}}''. DirtyCop Jimmy Shaker punches [[Creator/MelGibson Mullen]], saying it's for his girlfriend Maris, a criminal associate who was killed ''by Shaker''. Mullen refused to pay the ransom money, instead offering it as a reward to anyone who turned in the kidnappers. Shaker kills his own gang (including Maria) in a last-ditch effort to get his hands on the money, by pretending he'd discovered the kidnappers hideout in the course of his duties.
* Upon his [[spoiler:return to Candyland]] in ''Film/DjangoUnchained'', Django has plenty of vengeance to deal out, starting with a certain band of trackers who [[spoiler:had a slave ripped apart by dogs]]. Django's line as he busts in and starts shooting? "D'ARTAGNAN, MOTHERFUCKERS!"
* ''Film/JugFace'': [[spoiler:Bodey's father lists a victim of the Pit each time he whips Dawai.]]
* A chilling use of this trope occurs in the 1974 adaptation of ''Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress.'' [[spoiler:As each of the Armstrong household stabs Cassetti, they announce the name of the person they lost to him. It starts with Mrs. Hubbard declaring [[{{Tearjerker}} "For my daughter and granddaughter."]]]]

--->''' Boss:''' And this is for Clara Mae! ''(cue death blow)''
* At the climax of ''Film/CircusOfFear'', Mario throws knives to create a KnifeOutline around the killer. As he throws each knife, he says "This is for..." and names one of the killer's victims.

* The absolute king of this: In R.A. Salvatore's [[Literature/TheIcewindDaleTrilogy second]] published Drizzt novel ''Streams of Silver'', Bruenor the dwarf king-in-exile accomplishes his life dream of [[spoiler:finding his ancestral home, which his clan was run out of when he was barely old enough to remember. When he finds it, he discovers it's still inhabited and operated by an evil dwarven sub-race. Using the axe and armor he inherited from the discovered remains of his father and grandfather (they died fighting heroically, of course), Bruenor examines the place. He runs into a group of the new inhabitants, and becomes so over-wrought during the skirmish he dedicates each axe strong to his ancestors, beginning with: "For me father! For me father's father!" Later he's heard saying, "For me father's father's father's father's--". Lampshaded when the narrator says Bruenor's ancestral line was "long indeed. The gray dwarves never had a chance."]]
* An odd combination with the ArsonMurderAndLifeSaving in the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''Infinite Requiem''. When one of the characters realises the full extent of the Doctor's manipulative plan, she knocks him to the ground, saying "This is for using me!" Then she kisses him, saying "And this is for saving our lives."
* Creator/CSLewis's ''Literature/TheHorseAndHisBoy'' when [[spoiler:Aslan wounds Aravis in order to make her know the pain inflicted on her stepmother's slave. The slave was whipped due to Aravis' actions, and Aravis earlier stated that she didn't care what happened to the slave]].
* Shouted (mentally) by the enraged Companion Gwena (a magic spirit horse) while trampling one of Valdemar's most brutal enemies to death in Creator/MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Mage Winds]]'' trilogy.
* In Paul Robinson's ''Literature/InstrumentOfGod'', Andrea 528, researching her criminal case, gets into an argument in the law library with a rapist who's researching his case. They trade insults, and then it rises to a fight. She more or less beats the tar out of him, with her first punch a bit of retribution for the woman he raped, when she says, "This is for Ann!" before clocking him one so hard he drops to the floor.
* TheShahnameh: Two examples involving Rostm are:
** Rostam cuts queen Soodabeh in half, for her role in Siavash leaving Iran for Turan and his eventual death.
** Rostam impales his half-brother Shoqad to the tree his hiding behind with an arrow for essentially killing Rostam himself! That's right, Rostam is so badass he avenges his own death right before he dies!
* At the very beginning of the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' novel ''[[Literature/XWingSeries Wraith Squadron]]'', Myn Donos loses his command, Talon Squadron, to [[TheDragon Admiral Trigit]]'s various plans. His almost-girlfriend Falynn dies during the final battle. Needless to say, Revenge Ensues. And then Trigit (while losing badly) decides to bail from his [[CoolShip Star Destroyer]] in a fighter. Donos shoots him down with two missiles. One for Falynn, the other for Talon.
* A psychological example in the ''Literature/{{Revenge of the Sith}}'' novelization, where Anakin unleashes his various childhood demons while fighting Count Dooku, followed up by projecting the atrocities he's suffered during the war against Dooku.
-->When Count Dooku flies at him, blade flashing, Watto's fist cracks out from Anakin's childhood to knock the Sith Lord tumbling back. When with all the power that the dark side can draw from throughout the universe, Dooku hurls a jagged fragment of the durasteel table, Shmi Skywalker's gentle murmur ''I knew you would come for me,'' smashes it aside.
* ''Literature/TheThreeMusketeers'':
-->In three seconds, d'Artagnan had given him three strokes of the sword, saying at each stroke:\\
"One for Athos, one for Porthos, one for Aramis!"\\
At the third stroke, the gentleman fell in a heap.\\
D'Artagnan thought he was dead, or at least unconscious, and went up to him to take the order; but just as he reached out to search him, the wounded man, who had not let go of his sword, thrust the point into his chest, saying:\\
"And one for you!"\\
"And one for me! Saving the best for last!" d'Artagnan cried, furious, and pinned him to the ground with a fourth stroke through the stomach.
* Occurs straight in ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'', when Matthias kills Asmodeus Poisonteeth, but instead of the character yelling it, the narration does it for him:
-->He struck for Redwall!\\
He struck for Methuselah!\\
''[…and so on until…]''\\
He struck until his paws ached and the sword fell from them!
* In ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'': "MyNameIsInigoMontoya. YouKilledMyFather. PrepareToDie!" This only when Inigo says it as he actively beats up Count Rugen, not when he says it earlier in the book.
* In the book, ''Literature/TheLiesOfLockeLamora'', [[spoiler:all but one of the title character's friends are murdered]] by a wizard who cannot be killed or basically ''every wizard in the world'' will descend upon the killer and destroy not only him, but everyone he's ever known. So when Locke finally catches him he can't kill him and instead [[spoiler:cuts off his fingers, saying "This is for Nazca. That's Calo. Galdo, too." etc. Then, when he runs out of friends, he just says "those are for me and Jean." And then he cuts out the guy's tongue, too.]]
** He later does an extended version for [[spoiler:just his fellow Gentleman Bastards]] as he repeatedly stabs [[spoiler:the Gray King, who hired said wizard, saying a name after each stab and calling the owner his brother and friend. In Bug's case, his birth name is given for the first (and last) time and he is also called Locke's apprentice.]]
*** In the second book, Locke takes this entirely literally, offering the archon of Tal Verrar to his enemies to be tortured, as a "death-offering" for [[spoiler:the life of Ezri, who died (indirectly) as the result of the archon's scheming]].
* ''WhiteStar'', a book about an ex-marine who was a sniper during the Vietnam war forced back into sniping when one of the people he didn't kill comes back, delivers one at the end of the book. Earlier the sniper was tricked into killing his nanny/childminder/cook, and it plagues him throughout the book. At the very end he is shot through the forearm, hand, and leg, as well as burned all over and blown up with a makeshift nail bomb. He finally catches the enemy sniper, shoots him in every place the sniper got him, then walks away, declaring 'our accounts are closed.' Then he walks back, puts his gun on the bad guy's forehead, and tells him 'but (her) account is still owing.' and blows him away. Also a case of eye for an eye.
* At the very end of ''Literature/TheAeneid'', Turnus, defeated by Aeneas, begs for mercy. Aeneas is about to let him live but then sees that he is wearing a sword-belt he took from Aeneas's friend Pallas, whom he killed earlier. Aeneas gets angry, says (roughly), "This is for Pallas!" and kills him. This makes this trope OlderThanFeudalism.
* Used in the ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' novel ''TurnCoat'', though with magic instead of fists since Harry is a wizard. He delivers a powerful magical blow to the [[EldritchAbomination Skinwalker]], reciting the names of everyone he cares about that the beast has hurt (magic is fueled by emotion). Unfortunately, it's [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu little more than a bloody nose, and leaves him utterly exhausted]].
* Invoked and arguably subverted in Creator/DianaWynneJones's ''Literature/CartAndCwidder'', when mild, dreamy Moril finally [[BewareTheNiceOnes loses his temper]] and attacks the enemy with his MagicMusic. He strikes chords for his friend's hanged brother, for his murdered father, for his imprisoned brother and the coming war--and at the end of it all he's closed up the pass the enemy was coming through, ''with them inside''. Later, though, he acknowledges that he really did it because his beloved horse had just been killed.
* At the end of the second book in ''Literature/TheHollows'', Rachel does this to [[spoiler:Piscary]]. The first blow is for [[spoiler:sending Algaliarept to kill her]], the second for [[spoiler:[[RapeAsDrama raping Ivy]]]], and the third for [[spoiler:killing her father]].
* Toward the end of ''Literature/TheAsylumForWaywardVictorianGirls'' Emily with a 'y' says this when she [[spoiler:stabs Doctor Stockhill for the girls who couldn't be there]] followed immediately by Sir Edward for the rats.
* In the Creator/DaleBrown novel ''Wings of Fire'', Chris Wohl says this is for the two men he lost and [[spoiler:Wendy [=McLanahan=]]] when he {{Vigilante Execut|ion}}es [[spoiler:Pavel Kazakov]].
* In ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed: Renaissance'', Ezio stabs Francesco de'Pazzi multiple times, invoking the names of [[spoiler:his dead family members and Giuliano de'Medici.]]
* In the novelization of ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', Sam stabs [[spoiler:Starscream]] [[EyeScream in the eye]] with a grapple gun and screams, "That's for [[spoiler:Mirage]], [[PrecisionFStrike you son of a bitch]]!" after [[spoiler:Starscream [[DeathbyAdaptation ruthlessly kills Mirage]].]] Then he adds, "And for trying to crush my girlfriend!"
* The ''Literature/InDeath'' series. Eve has one after the fact, with the knockout being for the victim.
* In ''[[Literature/PaladinOfShadows Unto the Breach]]'' [[ColdSniper Lasko gives a low-key one]] when he kills [[spoiler:the enemy sniper who killed Sion.]]
* Done in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' by Mat, when he finally kills [[spoiler:the gholam]], who was responsible for the death of a large number of his soldiers and a former lover.
* ''Literature/TheLincolnLawyer'' by Creator/MichaelConnelly: After Mickey Haller [[spoiler:exposes Louis Roulet as the real culprit of a murder another client of his was wrongfully convicted for, he told Louis it was for Raul Levin, an investigator killed while looking for evidence]].
* Discussed in ''Literature/AllAmericanGirl''. The interrogators ask Sam after the shooting if she heard the shooter say something like, "This is for Margie." She didn't.
* In Creator/RobinJarvis' ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' books:
** In ''The Dark Portal'', Audrey cries "This is for my father!" right before she flings her mousebrass at [[BigBad Jupiter]].
** There is a particularly poignant example in ''The Oaken Throne'', when Warden Mugwort calls out the names of his dead children as he fights the bat army.
-->"For Penda! For Sorrel! For Bellinia!"
* ''Literature/WarriorCats'': ''[[Literature/WarriorCatsDawnOFTheClans Dawn Of The Clans]]'': In ''The Blazing Star'', Star Flower betrays Thunder and helps her father One Eye attack Thunder's father, Clear Sky. Later in the fight, Gray Wing (Thunder's uncle and Clear Sky's brother) kicks her back, thinking with satisfaction, "That one's for Thunder".
* In ''Literature/HarryPotter [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince And The Half-Blood Prince]]'', Harry (while wearing the Invisibility Cloak) spies on Draco Malfoy as he explains that Voldemort gave him a plan to carry out. When Draco is left alone, he somehow sense Harry nearby and petrifies him with a spell, making him fall down, so Draco stomps hard on his face, saying, "That's for my father", referencing Lucius Malfoy being arrested in [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheorderOfThePhoenix the previous book]].
* In the Literature/AbleTeam novel "Cairo Countdown", one of the 'Egyptians' helping Able Team gives himself away as an Israeli Mossad agent by saying, "That's for [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma%27alot_massacre Ma'alot]]" after shooting some terrorists.
* In the ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'' tie-in novel ''Devil's Due'', [[DarkLordOnLifeSupport Vanderspool]] is revealed to be the architect of the misery Raynor has recently suffered, including having lost several friends, and in their final confrontation we get this:
-->"This isn't about revenge. This is about justice. About restoring the balance. About taking something dark and ugly out of the galaxy once and for all, so that something—something decent and good—can grow instead. This is for the Heaven's Devils. For everyone who was their friend. And for everyone whose life you have ruined along your way to this moment."

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Subverted in ''Series/SledgeHammer'': When the title character throws in one more punch than he dedicates, and when asked who that was for, he says, "that one was gratuitous."

* An early episode of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' involving [[WackyFratboyHijinx frat boys]] had Xander, having earlier been [[DisguisedInDrag punished for crashing their party]], get some revenge.
-->'''Xander:''' That's for the wig! ''[punches fratboy]'' [[GagBoobs That's for the bra!]] That's for the makeup! ''[punches again, knocking him out]'' And that's for the last sixteen and a half years!
** In "A New Man" Buffy wants revenge on a demon who's apparently killed Giles, unaware that he's actually been turned into the demon via a spell.
-->'''Buffy:''' ''[stabbing demon]'' This is for Giles!\\
'''Giles:''' ''[in demon language]'' For me?
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** In a wickedly cheesy moment, just after they've killed the {{Big Bad}}, Dean crouches down by the corpse and says "That was for our Mom, you son of a bitch."
** In a Season 8 episode, a recurring character pulls a revolver on the [[MonsterOfTheWeek villain of the week]]. She starts listing his victims ("This is for…") and punctuates each one with a trigger pull. Turns out, the gun is unloaded. She just wanted to see his terrified flinches.
** A dijiin infects Dean with a lethal poison saying, "That's for our father, you son of a bitch", referencing either another dijiin that the Winchesters killed several seasons earlier, or Lucifer (who created the demons, and was sent back to Hell in the previous episode).
* In the ''Series/{{Lost}}'' third season finale, [[spoiler:Sawyer shoots Tom, saying, "That's for taking the kid off the raft," a CallBack to the first season finale when the Others kidnapped Walt.]]
* One episode of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' centers around Worf doing a major mission and dedicating it to Jadzia, [[spoiler:so she may properly enter Sto-Vo-kor]].
** The GrandFinale had two Cardassian guards execute a pair of Jem'Hadar soldiers who were about to kill Damar, Kira and Garak, in retaliation for the Dominion annihilating a Cardassian city in an attempt to quash Damar's rebellion. "That was for Lakarian City."

* During the American Roadtrip episode of ''TopGear'', the following occurs when the three presenters are trying to get each other killed via painting offensive slogans on each other's cars while driving through [[DeepSouth Alabama]]:
-->'''Hammond''': ''[painting Clarkson's car]'' Revenge for all those height gags. Every time he's called me "Hamster."\\
'''Clarkson''': ''[painting May's car]'' This is for every time you've been late and lost.\\
'''May''': ''[defending his work to a genuinely dismayed Hammond and Clarkson]'' All the times you drove into the back of my Cadillac.
* In ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' Commander Cruger does a form of this when he's fighting the criminal who [[spoiler:supposedly]] killed his wife.
** Also when Sky was fighting the criminal who [[YouKilledMyFather murdered his father]]. Just before he morphs using [[WithOurSwordsScene Jack's Red Ranger Morpher]] he even ''says'' "This one's for you, dad."
* Parodied in ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'', during the climactic fight between Jack and Macratty:
-->'''Macratty''': This one's for {{Mook Tumbler}}. ''[hits Jack]'' This one's for Bullock--\\
'''Tom Boss''': Actually, ''you'' shot Bullock.\\
'''Macratty''': Do you want me to shoot you [[spoiler:again]]?
* Used for comedy in ''Series/{{Blackadder}} Back and Forth'', where the modern Blackadder punches out Creator/WilliamShakespeare, saying it's for every schoolboy and schoolgirl for the next 400 years, for all the suffering Shakespeare's work is going to put them through. Then he adds a kick for Creator/KennethBranagh's four-hour version of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''. [[spoiler:When Blackadder returns to 1999, he learns that this attack made Shakespeare stop writing, which was a contributing factor to France ruling over modern England.]]
* In ''Series/EastEnders'', Den Watts tricks Phil Mitchell into helping him pull off a robbery. He ends up leaving Phil to be arrested by the police as revenge for Phil punching his daughter, having his son beaten up and Phil forbidding his ex-wife Lisa Fowler from having contact with their baby.

Oh yeah, and I got you a little something from Lisa! ''[empties the bag of the money the pair of them had originally planned to steal all around Phil]''
* In season 5 finale of ''Series/{{Dexter}}'', Lumen stabs [[spoiler:Jordan Chase]], saying "this is for all the women you've hurt". [[spoiler:Jordan Chase]] was responsible for the gang-rape, torture, and murder of at least a dozen women. He was also responsible for Lumen's own rape and torture.
** There was a silent version of this earlier in the season. With one of her rapists on the "kill table", Lumen silently looks around the room, at the pictures of all the other victims. She closes her eyes, and then moves in for the kill. Actress Julia Stiles confirms this was a "This is for all of you" moment.
* Braca (TheDragon) to the series BigBad Scorpius in Season 4 of ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. One shot. One line: "This is for all the times I had to say 'yes'." The real killer is that ''[[FakeDefector he's on Scorpius' side when he does it]]''. The ''other'' BigBad giving him the order just didn't realise it at the time.
* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978''. In the pilot Apollo says "This one's for Zac!" as he blasts a Cylon fighter.
* ''Series/TwentyFour'' had one right before Jack killed Christopher Henderson:
-->'''Jack''': You are responsible for the deaths of [[spoiler:David Palmer, Tony Almeida, and Michelle Dessler]]. They were friends of mine.\\
'''Henderson''': That's the way it works.
** And then again in the finale of "Live Another Day" right before ''decapitating'' [[spoiler:Cheng Zhi]]
-->'''Jack:''' This is for [[spoiler:Audrey]] you son of a bitch.
* Gemma Butler on ''Series/{{Ringer}}'' gets two:
** When she [[spoiler:finds out that her husband Henry is cheating on her with Siobhan, and slaps Bridget (who's pretending to be Siobhan--long and ''very'' twisty story)]].
--->'''Gemma''': That's for [[spoiler:sleeping with my husband, you whore!]]
** And when she gets the drop on [[spoiler:the man who's kidnapped her on Siobhan's orders and eventually tries to murder her, but messes up the job[[note]](sadly, a few moments he has a second try and succeeds--but sadly for ''him'' Siobhan shoots him shortly afterwards)[[/note]].]]
--->'''Gemma''': [[spoiler:[[TitleDrop That's what you get for trying to kill me]].]]
* Crash [=McLarson=] in ''Series/TheAquabatsSuperShow'' [[spoiler:while he beats up Space Monster M:]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Crash [=McLarson=]:''' This is for [=SuperMagic PowerMan=]! ''[stomp]'' …and this is for Lanolin Lady! ''[stomp]'' …and '''this''' is for '''THE CHILDREN!!!''' ''[stomp]'']]
* Memorably parodied in ''Series/TheYoungOnes''. This week's member of the Balowski Family is a police commissioner who just happens to closely resemble Mussolini, and has done since he was very young. Cue his sad tale of how his potential date headbutted him at the school disco… "I said, ‘What's ''that'' for?’ …''she'' said, ‘''That'''s for the invasion of Crete!’"
* ''Series/BurnNotice'':
** Michael and Madeline go to retrieve a plot-important package from a man who'd threatened Madeline when she asked for it earlier. After Michael has forced the man to give the package up, he calmly dislocates the man's arm, explaining: "That was for my mom."
** The very last episode, Madeline pays Michael back, with interest. When James' men smash their way into her house, she's sitting and smoking calmly. She says, "this one's for my boys", then [[spoiler:[[SuicideAttack blows up the whole house]]]].

--> '''Kit''': This is for [[SemperFi Chris]]

* ''Series/GeneralHospital'': Mobster Sonny's former right-hand man Harry has been stalking and terrorizing Sonny and Sonny's ex Brenda, blaming them for the death of Sonny's wife Lily (killed via a CarBomb planted by her father in an attempt to kill Sonny because of his infidelity, which was only discovered because ''Harry'' reported it to him). After much machinations, he has trapped Brenda and Sonny in a cavern. His last act, before he sets off a bomb intended to bury the two alive, is to declare: "For Lily."
* ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' Sameen Shaw has gone missing, perhaps dead, so Team Machine go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge. Reese is fighting an ISA agent and is about to inflict a killing blow, saying "This is for Sameen!" The man gasps in surprise, "Sameen?!" Reese realises this is a friend of Shaw who helped her escape in a previous episode, and spares his life.
* ''Series/LostGirl'': The season 4 final, [[spoiler:Bo to Massimo]]:
-->[[spoiler:'''Bo:''' ''[slap]'' '''That''' is for laying a finger on Lauren.\\
''[knees]'' For Rainer.\\
''[strikes with the butt of blade]'' For Hale.\\
''[stab]'' And '''that''' is for breaking Kenzi's heart.]]
* ''Series/{{Borgia}}'': Cesare's [[EstablishingCharacterMoment opening scene]] is a rare villainous example.
-->'''Cesare:''' This is for calling my [[FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo uncle]] a Jew. ''[punch]''\\
This is for calling my uncle a Moor. ''[punch]''\\
This is because I feel like beating the shit out of you.
* In the ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'' episode [[Recap/Supergirl2015S2E7TheDarkestPlace "The Darkest Place"]], during [[Comicbook/MartianManhunter J'onn's]] fight with M'gann, he calls out for his family, and [[LastOfHisKind all of the Green Martians]], who were wiped out by M'gann's people, the White Martians.
* ''Series/WynonnaEarp'': In the Season 2 finale, Doc is facing off with [[spoiler: the [[BackFromTheDead resurrected]] [[ArchEnemy Bobo del Rey]]]], and takes out some longstanding grudges, via knife.
-->'''Doc''': This is for threatening Waverly. (''slash'') This is for betraying Wyatt. (''slash'') And this, is for leaving me [[SealedGoodInACan in that well]]. (''kicks [[spoiler: Bobo]] onto a [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice pile of broken pipes]]'')

* The last pre-chorus in ''Payback'' by Music/{{Slayer}}:
-->''You've got a fucking catheter in your brain\\
Pissing your common sense away\\
This is for the mindfuck\\
This is for the hell of it\\
This is for me…''
* Music/{{Prince}} does it in "Lady Cab Driver", except he replaces fighting with sounds of (what else?) sex.
* In the country ''Coward of the County'', Tommy, a coward sheriff, hears that the Gatlin boys attacked and "take turns on (his girl) Becky." Even though his dad told him not to fight unless absolutely necessary, Tommy goes to the bar where the men are at the time and confronts them in a good ol' fistfight. He could be heard saying "'This one's for Becky,' as he saw the last one fall."

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', an early set of strips showed Linus dealing with his frustrations by throwing rocks into a vacant lot.
-->'''Linus:''' ''This'' is for hot summer nights! And ''this'' is for cold winter mornings! And ''this'' is for lies and broken promises! ''[turns to Charlie Brown standing nearby]'' Do you have any requests?
** Also done with Linus and chocolate candies in the TV special ''Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown''. See Western Animation, below.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1983&addr=831115 clobbered Odie]] and said "That's for not being a cat." [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1983&addr=831116 Later on]], Garfield realized it was wrong on his part to Clobber Odie for not being a cat since it wasn't Odie's choice. Garfield then kicked Odie. "This is for being a dog."

* In ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', [[GenreBlind Takanuva makes the mistake]] of [[TalkingIsAFreeAction trying to do this before he starts attacking Tuyet]]:
-->'''Takanuva''': For Takua, for Lesovikk, and for all the Toa and Matoran whose lives you have ruined, I strike. ''[Gets blasted through the wall.]''

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Emile in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' gets a few off for his deceased teammates shortly before his own death, without [[DeadpanSnarker his usual humour]].
-->'''Emile:''' That was for Kat!\\
That was for Jorge!
* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsRepublicCommando'', [[DeadpanSnarker Scorch]], after shooting a group of droids, says, "And that was for Delta 32! …or was that Delta 23…?"
** More generally, a couple of characters in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' have "For the Republic!" as their battle-cry.
*** In ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront'' games, "For the Republic!" is also one of the generic voice clips from Clone Troopers, along with ''For the Chancellor!".
* While not used in the game itself, a [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin/file/43361/2428 walkthrough]] for ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryV'' features too great a parody to pass up: The hero's showdown with [[TheDragon The Assassin]] is described as involving a series of punches, stabs, and high-fives where appropriate for the various people he's killed.
* The PlayerCharacter in ''VideoGame/{{Postal}} 2'' often shouts "And one for…" after killing someone.
-->And one for your mother!\\
And one for the pope!\\
And one for Bobo the space monkey!\\
And one because I have ammo left!\\
And one just because I can!
* A sniper in the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 2'' Soviet campaign invokes this by saying "This one's for my [family member] " as he is shooting Nazis, and goes through his family, before ending with "and this one's for my dog! HOW YOU LIKE IT?!" and laughing maniacally. Then he gets [[Film/SavingPrivateRyan blown up by a tank]].
* The ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series gets in a few:
** Makarov in "No Russian", just before engaging FSB troops.
-->'''Makarov''': For Zakhaev.
** Price in "Return to Sender", after [[spoiler:interrogating Warrabe.]]
-->'''Price''': Right then. ''[Tosses Warrabe a gas mask]'' This is for [[spoiler:the boys at Hereford]]. ''[Shoots Warrabe in the head]''
** And finally, Price gets one more in "Dust to Dust" as he and Yuri begin their assault.
-->'''Price:''' This is for [[spoiler:Soap]].
%% Used in ''Videogame/TraumaCenter''.
* Used in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Super Street Fighter 4]]'' by Guile during his rival fight against M. Bison.
* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'', [[ChivalrousPervert Sain's]] quote before the final battle is "This is for all the lovely ladies I've yet to meet!"
* A variation appears in the first ''VideoGame/{{Kingdom Hearts|I}}''; randomly during the Olympus Colosseum rounds, after a victory DonaldDuck would declare "For Daisy!"
** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', when Sora and Disney/{{Mulan}} do their CombinationAttack, Mulan shouts, "For China!"
* ''VideoGame/BloodRayne2'': While killing Kagan "This is for my mother! ''[Stab]'' This is for my city! ''[Stab]'' And this is for my angry little misspent life! ''[Decapitation]'' You rat sucking son of a bitch!
* [[TalkingWeapon Lilarcor]] from ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'' will occasionally segue into one of these during combat:
-->'''Lilarcor:''' …and this one's for grandma, who said I'd never amount to anything more than a butter knife!
* A rare villainous example existed in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. After Snake ends up getting caught by Volgin (who wasn't easily fooled by Snake disguising himself as Raikov, because he "[[HoYay "knew the Major far better than anyone else"]], as well as The Boss unmasking Snake, Volgin gives him a huge beatdown (remarked as one of the more horrifying elements of the game) in order to "make [Snake] pay for hurting Ivan." It's not the last time this sort of thing happens, either. Equip the Raikov mask, punch or shoot Volgin when he lets his guard down, and then he'll charge at you in a fury and shout "HOW DARE YOU!! You will pay for what you did to Ivan!"
* ''VideoGame/{{Deadpool}}'' has way too much fun with this trope when the player is given the option to "bitch-slap" Wolverine.
-->'''Deadpool:''' Oh, Wolvie, time to wake up, RISE AND SHINE STUBBY! Up and at 'em! Fine, then… That's for all the clown jokes! That's for never calling just to say 'hi'! That's because I get aroused when I slap people! That's for all the furry midgets in the world! [[ForTheLulz That's because I feel like it!]] [[PunctuatedPounding WHY! WON'T! YOU! WAKE! UP! WAKE UP!]] [[NoFourthWall That's because the player keeps mashing the button!]] [[ForTheLulz That's because I like slapping fleshy things with this hand!]] That's for being in more comics than me! [[FoeYay That's for making me love you! That's for making me hate you! That's for never taking us to the prom!]] That's for always working late! That's for being short! That's for stabbing me in the heart! [[LiteralMetaphor Literally!]] That's for never letting me fly the Blackbird! Except when I crashed it! [[FoeYay That's for being the worst wingman in bro-mance history!]] [[NoFourthWall That's because I want to see if the player'll keep doing this! That's for all the hot gamer girls out there! Hey, call me!]] That's for being a total douche! That's for never washing the dishes! That's for last year's white elephant gift! [[LiteralMetaphor Who wants a white elephant?!]] And finally, [[OverlyLongGag that's because this whole set just added five minutes of bonus play to the most awesome game ever devised by mutant or man!]]
* One ending of ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol'' customizes this depending on who the villain killed--for instance, two different love interests can be mentioned depending on their current vital signs.
* Sometimes, before unleashing an [[LimitBreak Overdrive]], Auron from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' will cry out, "This is for the fallen!"
* Done right at the end of ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar3'' [[spoiler:As Marcus stabs the Queen with Dom's knife growling; "Feel that? That's from Dom, and everybody else you killed, you bitch!"]]
** A less personal one is the COG rallying call "For the Fallen" in multilayer.
* Only discussed by Morgan in ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland Chapter 3: Lair of the Leviathan'', while [[TalkingInYourSleep talking in her sleep]]: "THIS is for JUGBENDER!"
** Before that, in Chapter 1, Guybrush raises his Cutlass of Kaflu and says, "This is for the monkeys, [=LeChuck=]!" before [[spoiler:his Pox-infected hand goes out of control, making him unable to kill the human [=LeChuck=]]].
* In ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans'': Path of the Furon, Crypto does this as he punches Saxon during the end of the final mission in Shen Long:
-->'''Crypto :''' This is for the Master! And because I don't like you! And for your [[PunctuatedForEmphasis BOGUS! SATIN! JAMMIES!]]
* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'', the Boss, if the Female 1 voice is chosen, will give one when planting each explosive during the final mission of the serious ending.
** In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', the Boss will say things like this while shooting down alien ships in "The White Crib":
-->'''Boss:''' This is for Uncle Sam! And this is for Lady Liberty! And this one's just for shits and giggles!
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Shepard does this after [[spoiler:impaling Kai Leng on the omni-blade, on behalf of either Thane, Miranda, or Major Kirrahe, depending on which of them Leng killed earlier. There's even a version for both Thane ''and'' Miranda. If he killed the salarian councilor (meaning Kirrahe and Thane were already dead), but not Miranda, Shepard just taunts him with the fact that he didn't have a gunship to back him up this time.]]
* In ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'', every character you've played thus far--with the exception of the first, who becomes the FinalBoss--appears in the last battle. Every single person who has suffered and/or died and/or worse gets their chance to strike back at Pious Augustus.
* In ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'', if you keep shooting at the BigBad's greenhouse during the endgame--instead of taking [[PuzzleBoss the sneaky route]]--Manny eventually starts to say this. The last victim he names, however, died under circumstances completely unrelated to the central plot and the villains' plans (this prompts the BigBad to ask who he is talking about).
* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the player character can have this done to them. After they clear out a group of pirates, they may randomly encounter a couple remnants of the pirate gang, who will attack the player on sight and yell, "This is for Haldyn!" (Haldyn was their leader and was killed by the player.)
* During the landsmeet in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'': Alistair pulls one of these if you choose to have him fight Loghain in single combat to [[spoiler:prove his right to Fereldan's throne]]. Alistair will execute Loghain after this conversation.
-->'''Loghain''': Good, there's some of [[spoiler:Maric]] in you after all.\\
'''Alistair''': Forget [[spoiler:Maric]], this is for Duncan! ''[decapitates Loghain]''
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' has Sheva to [[spoiler:Wesker]].
-->'''Sheva''': That was for our fallen brothers.
* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' features an unusual variation. After becoming an OfficialCouple, Kyrie's post-LimitBreak PreMortemOneLiner changes to "That one's for Morte!" It's odd because she may be perfectly unharmed or not even in the active party. Of course, given that Morte [[InLoveWithYourCarnage likes to watch things be destroyed]], it's possible he's just showing off.
* At the end of the final storyline quest in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', if you let Handsome Jack finish his VillainousBreakdown speech, Lilith will put a bullet through his head and quip "That's for [[spoiler:Roland.]]"
* Just before the final battle of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFuckboys 3'', this exchange occurs:
--> [[spoiler:'''Springtrap:''']] This is where you eat my shit\\
[[[spoiler:'''Golden Freddy:''']] NO. THIS IS. THIS IS FOR [[spoiler:FREDBEAR'S FAMILY DINER.]] THIS IS FOR [[spoiler:1972.]] '''''[[AtomicFBomb YOU MOTHERFUCKERRRRRRRRRRRRR]]'''''
* In ''VideoGame/SkullGirls'', Beowulf says this at the end of his story mode;
-->'''Beowulf:''' This… is for Grendel!!
* In ''VideoGame/BloodWake'', Shao Kai says this twice.
** The first is after destroying Shao Lung's flagship: the Dragon.
-->'''Shao Kai:''' That's for Ped Zeng!
** He also says this in the opening of the last mission where he intends to defeat his brother once and for all.
-->'''Shao Kai:''' Tonight's for my family, for Ped Zeng, for Helen, for all the thousands my brother murdered! Tonight, we'll answer to our ancestors together!
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', Genn Greymane gets one of these when he confronts Sylvanas Windrunner in Stormheim.
-->'''Genn''': For [[spoiler: Varian]]! For [[DoomedHometown Gilneas]]! [[PunctuatedForEmphasis FOR! MY! SON!]]
* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', if ComicBook/CaptainAmerica defeats ComicBook/IronMan, you get this victory quote:
-->'''Cap:''' And ''that'' was for ''ComicBook/CivilWar''.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'s'' Volume 4 finale, Lie Ren, facing the Grimm that [[DoomedHometown killed his family and destroyed his home]], calmly faces the monster once it is immobilized and begins listing off all the people it killed while chopping off its limbs and head with his father's knife.
-->''For my mother. (slices one arm off) For my father. (slices off the other arm) For all those that you've slain. (cuts it across the chest) For myself. (cuts off its head)''

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Mijuu of ''Webcomic/{{Juathuur}}'' [[http://www.juathuur.com/gatecrash/juathuur-owoa/22-08 here]].
* In ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' #303, Lothar Hex, PsychoForHire, tests out his new robotic limbs… on his teammates. Panel by panel, it goes…
-->'''Lothar:''' That's for cutting my limbs off! ''[punches Rouge in the gut]''\\
'''Lothar:''' That's for kicking me in the head! ''[knees Rogue in the jaw]''\\
'''Lothar:''' That's for pushing me down the stairs! ''[punches Eastwood in the face]''\\
'''Lothar:''' That's so you don't feel left out! ''[kicks Syrus in the crotch]''
* In ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', Momo's first act with her new chassis is to take revenge on Pintsize.
--> '''Momo:''' ''This'' is for all the times you tried to look under my skirt!
* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod:'' Ja Wangnan recites this when he shoves a grenade into Kim Lurker's mouth for revenge.
* In ''Webcomic/The10Doctors'', [[http://comics.shipsinker.com/?id=155 Nyssa takes out the Master's ship,]] declaring, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E7Logopolis "That was for every soul you wiped out in the Traken Union,]] [[PrecisionFStrike you evil son of a bitch!"]]
* During the Roman War arc in ''Webcomic?ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'', Arthur is shown in one strip throwing rocks and saying "And ''this'' is for Roman Emperors who don't know to leave well enough alone!" This was one of the strip's many shout-outs to ''ComicStrip/Peanuts'', since at the time [=GoComics=] was rerunning the Linus strips mentioned above.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie'' had Sergeant Slaughter doing this while repeatedly body-slamming [[TheDragon Nemesis Enforcer]]:
-->'''Sergeant Slaughter:''' This is for Gung-Ho, Alpine, and Bazooka! ''[Slam]''\\
This is for Falcon! ''[Punch]''\\
This is for me! ''[Elbow]''\\
This is for Duke! ''[Punch]''\\
AND THIS IS FOR THE U.S. OF A.!!! ''[Body slam]''
* Gladiator Draaga does this to Mongul in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "War World."
-->'''Gladiator Draaga:''' This is for my people! ''[Punch]''\\
This is for my humiliation! ''[Punch]''\\
And this is for justice! ''[Punch]''
** Made sublimely {{Narm}}y by the actor's weird pronunciation: "And this is for JOSS-TISS!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** In "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E21ThreeMenAndAComicBook Three Men and a Comic Book]]", a WWI soldier pulls the pin on a hand grenade, starts calling out the names of all the other soldiers in his company that the grenade is for, and becomes so wrapped up in the speech that he forgets to throw it before it goes off.
--->"This one's for you, Kaiser Bill. Special delivery from Uncle Sam and all the boys in D company. Yeah… Johnny, Harris, Brooklyn Bob. And Reggie. Yeah, even Reggie. He ain't so stuck up once you get to know hi--" ''[KABOOM!]''
** "That's for taking credit for other people's work!" (That was just one of the examples Nelson Muntz left back when he was fond of this trope)
** PlayedForLaughs in "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E13AndMaggieMakesThree And Maggie Makes Three]]"; when Homer quits his job at the power plant, he proceeds to literally do whatever he wants to Mr. Burns. Upon leaving, he remarks: "That's for employing me for eight years!"
** During "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS12E21SimpsonsTallTales Simpsons Tall Tales]]", Homer, as Paul Bunyan, says "This one's for that crippled little boy… that I crippled."
** During a Treehouse of Horror episode, Homer says "This is for Snowball I and JFK!" before killing Death with a bowling ball.
*** And during another Treehouse of Horror episode ("Wanted: Dead, then Alive"), when Homer has bludgeoned Sideshow Bob to death with an antique lamp:
---->'''Homer''': That's for [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E12KrustyGetsBusted trying to frame Krusty!]]\\
'''Bart''': What about all the times he tried to kill]] ''me?!''\\
'''Homer''': ''[unsure]'' Eh…
* A villain example: In part 1 of the ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' episode "Just Us Justice Ducks", the title character's evil twin Negaduck jumps on top of Darkwing's body with PunctuatedPounding, then leaves and comes back for more, simultaneously announcing his team-up with 4 other villains:
-->'''Negaduck''': Oh, almost forgot… This is for MEGAVOLT! ''[jump]'' BUSHROOT! ''[jump]'' LIQUIDATOR! ''[jump]'' QUACKERJACK! ''[jump]'' And NEGADUCK… ''[jump]'' makes five: '''The Fearsome Five!!'''
* Done in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Don't Make Me Over," where, after Meg is tricked into having sex with Jimmy Fallon as part of the cold opening to ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', Peter attacks Fallon during his monologue, but Peter attacks Jimmy Fallon for all those times Fallon has ever cracked up in his sketches, citing that only Carol Burnett has earned the right to do that, ''then'' Peter wonders where the guy who had sex with his daughter is.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'': During the Hobgoblin's first two-parter, he puts Aunt May in the hospital while kidnapping Harry Osborn. Spider-Man later gets Hob to cripple his own glider via DeadlyDodging, and watches him crash into the river. "THAT was for Aunt May!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan,'' Spider-Man is seething over the fact that he was forced to publicly defend a VillainWithGoodPublicity from an attack by {{Supervillain}} the Green Goblin. In battle, he delivers a particularly violent kick to Green Goblin's face, adding "''That's'' for [[SaveTheVillain making me protect]] [[BigBad Tombstone]]!"
* In the ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' episode "Three Men and a Booby", Monty yells "This is for the Parmesan we left behind!" before launching a plunger at a cage with the mother booby.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', Batman does this to master villain Rupert Thorne:
-->''[slams Thorne's wrist into the desk]'' That's for pulling a gun.\\
''[throws Thorne across the room]'' And that's for the drugs.\\
''[Punches Thorne in the face]'' And that's for anything I missed.
** Made incredibly badass because Bats sounds like he's only ''barely'' resisting the urge to tear Thorne limb from limb with his bare hands.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', in "Legacy", when Superman goes to settle with {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} after breaking free of his mindwashing, he does this.
-->'''Superman''': ''[punch]'' That's for Dan Turpin.\\
'''Darkseid''': [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Who?]]\\
'''Superman''': The good man you murdered!\\
'''Darkseid''': Had I known one human's death would pain you so, I would have killed more.
* Coop from ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'' frequently gives these out before taking out that episode's BigBad. It's one of the series' pet tropes, with the added humor that it's usually something petty (making him spill his Mega Slush) or something ''Coop'' is [[NiceJobBreakingItHero actually to blame]] for…
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' plays with this. The girls are tricked by a prank phone call into attacking Fuzzy Lumpkins. When we see him, he's just taking a bath.
-->'''Buttercup''': ''[punching him]'' THIS is for anything you broke!\\
'''Blossom''': ''[pulling his antennae]'' THIS is for anyone you hurt!\\
'''Bubbles''': And THIS is for [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking taking a BATH!]] (hits him with a banjo)
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', Kuki Sanban aka Numbah Three, does this as she goes on an LongList of all her dolls ruined by the monstrous lice they're fighting in the episode.
* This happens in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' a lot.
* On the ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' episode "The New Olympians", Taurus yells, "This is for my father!" as he strikes Proteus.
* Done during an epic fight in the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "Bullocks to Stan".
--> '''Stan''': This is for treating me like a errand boy! This is for delaying my promotion! [[PapaWolf This is for disrespecting my daughter!]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And this is for not letting me stop for a drink!]]
* A variation from the ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' DVD "[[ChristmasSpecial Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving]]." When Nicholas returns home after years abroad, his old friend Octavius slaps him with a fish, telling him, "That's for not writing!" and then slaps him again, this time for not calling. They then share a tender reunion, and toward the end of their conversation, he slaps Nicholas one more time. "That's for not bringing me back a souvenir."
* Humorously subverted in a ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' episode while taking a jab at the JokerImmunity trope. After getting zapped and regenerated once, Zorak reveals he destroyed a toy collection, and Space Ghost proceeds to zap Zorak repeatedly for each one of the toys he ruined. Still mad, Space Ghost finally decides to give him "one to grow on," and Zorak doesn't reappear. Space Ghost spends the rest of the episode in remorse when in fact Zorak escaped off-stage in the chaos.
* In ''WesternAnimation/DanVs.'' "Traffic," Dan encounters Helicopter Hal, the radio traffic reporter, and punches him.
-->'''Dan''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext That's for making me]] {{p|ottyFailure}}ee!\\
'''Hal''': What?\\
'''Dan''': You love traffic, don't you?\\
'''Hal''': Well, it is my bread and butter.\\
''(Dan punches him again)''\\
'''Dan''': ''That's'' because I can't digest butter!\\
'''Hal''': How is that my fault? You can't just punch a celebrity.\\
'''Dan''': [[SmallNameBigEgo I didn't.]]
* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. In "City on the Edge of Forever" Kenny [=McCormick=] kills death while yelling "and this one's for me" over and over. ItMakesSenseInContext when you know that Kenny's BlessedWithSuck because ''[[TheyKilledKennyAgain he keeps dying and coming back to life—over and over]]'', so each "me" is one of those deaths.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'', when Genie turns into a soldier and starts firing a machine gun in a random direction when he thinks he's under attack.
-->'''Genie:''' This is for Joe! And this is for Moe! And this is for BARTHOLOMEW!
* Occurred in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' while TheProfessor [[FreakyFridayFlip (in Bender's body)]] was in the middle of a SwordFight with another robot. He calls out the name of a robot who had [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed herself]] moments earlier.
-->'''Professor:''' This is for Big Bertha! ''[lunges forward only to end up getting his sword stuck in a wall]'' That is not what I meant to give you for Big Bertha.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', Bulkhead goes off on Starscream[[spoiler:'s clone]] when he starts insulting him and brings up a friend he casually murdered in the beginning of the series. Bulkhead makes him pay:
-->'''Bulkhead:''' For Cliffjumper! ''[WHAM]'' For Bumblebee! ''[WHAM]'' For ''everything!'' ''['''CRUNCH''']''
** Arcee is practically the Queen of this trope
-->'''Starscream:''' What was that?\\
'''Arcee:''' ''(while bleeding)'' I said, "This... is... FOR [[DeadPartner CLIFFJUMPER]]!"
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretShow'':
** Doctor Doctor once brainwashed the whole population of Helsinki into hating Victor and Anita. Said population mentioned the trope whenever they did something to the two heroes.
** Done by Helsinki Man in the episode which takes as its title his catchphrase: "And that's for Helsinki!"
* In ''[[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown]]'', when Linus is unable to give his candy to Miss Othmar because she left with her boyfriend, he feels so upset that he goes up onto a bridge and starts throwing off the candies one by one (Snoopy and Woodstock both catch the candies in their mouths and eat them). As he throws each piece of candy off the bridge, he says things that start with this trope:
-->'''Linus:''' This one is for love! And this one is for valentines! This one is for romance! This one is for [[Literature/SonnetsFromThePortuguese Elizabeth Barrett Browning]]! This is for "How do I love thee!" This is for…
* Louise does this in the ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' episode "Mother Daughter Laser Razor" in the laser tag arena.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'':
-->'''Mabel''': That's for lying to me! ''That's'' for breaking my heart! And ''this'' is for messing with my brother!
* Happened once in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' in the episode Fionna and Cake:
-->'''Fionna:''' And this is for yankin' at my heart guts!
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'': In the ''All Stars'' episode "Suckers Punched," Alejandro's is his BigBrotherBully Jose. The fight is for the most part even, until Jose makes the big mistake of insulting Heather. Alejandro snaps and starts beating down his brother for all the things he's done to him over the years with this trope in effect, and serves the secondary purpose of winning a point for his team.
-->'''Alejandro''': And this is for calling ''any'' aspect of Heather unattractive!
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' episode "Buried Pleasure", Donna, Ariana and Kendra gang on Holt's abusive girlfriend for beating up their husbands. Ariana shouts "This is for my Tim!" and Kenda shouts "This is for my Lester!".
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Hercules}}'', when the parents go missing, Hercules goes off to try and save them, whereas [[{{Jerkass}} Adonis]], on the other hand, takes this as a chance to try and take control. When Herc brings everyone back, [[BoltOfDivineRetribution Zeus hits Adonis with a lighting bolt]] and shouts, "And thats's for getting too big for your own britches!"
* A variant: in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'', Kaeloo tries to force Quack Quack to eat a food called "org-yurt" which tastes absolutely horrible (but is better for the environment than what he usually eats). When he decides to waste it, she [[HulkingOut Hulks Out]] and force feeds him a bunch of org-yurts while yelling one reason for each one:
-->'''Kaeloo''': One org-yurt for the rainforest! One org-yurt for the Siberian tiger! [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers And one org-yurt for butt-naked Indians!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/XMen'': Wolverine shouts "This one's for your Morph" while demolishing a [[KillerRobot sentinel]].
* On ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', Spanky Ham lets a small list off as he fires a machine gun into a swarm of the Producer's robots while defending his fellow housemates in the Season 1 Finale.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* A combination of bombs or artillery shells large enough to write on, and service personnel with enough time and paint has lead to personnel writing snappy [[PreMortemOneLiner Pre-Mortem One-Liners]], including this kind, as early as WWII.
** The most recent example would be the [[UsefulNotes/RussiansWithRustingRockets Russians with Refurbished Rockets]] in Syria, who [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeA_QZOBRSg inscribed "For ours" and "For Paris"]] in front of [[PropagandaMachine a conveniently present MoD camera team]].
* A Belgian Malinois dog named Cairo was among the group of Navy Seals that conducted the fatal raid on Osama bin Laden's compound. Given that a police dog (Sirius, a 4 year old bomb detecting gold labrador) was among the many officers killed on 9/11, it seems like an inadvertent example of this trope.
