Revenge Tropes

Revenge is sweeter than life itself. So think fools.
Juvenal

"An eye for an eye" (or, at least, how many people misunderstand the bible verse) has long been the standing policy for many humans. Perhaps it's related to reciprocal altruism — just as people are prone to repay kindness with kindness, they are also prone to Pay Evil unto Evil. In any case, the concept of revenge works even better in fiction.

An obsession. Compare Crime and Punishment Tropes, Hatred Tropes, & Morality Tropes. Contrast A Forgiving Index.
