A lot of the examples here seem to be uses of the Stock Phrase (which isn't really all that stock) instead of examples of the trope. I'm not doing anything about it, just ... noting that.

Since I have been lurking here, I've seen the Zohan examples keep getting added and removed. Okay, I get using the trope namer as the page quote but then %in no more quotes and removing the Zohan example from this page and the rest of the wiki makes it obvious it is not wanted. Yet I have not seen any reasoning for it.

Not sure that this is different enough from Kick the Dog...

In its original context, it was to show the bad guy was not content to just hurt the hero but also wanted to do something mean and pointless to something that should be of little concern to them just because it was associated with the hero. It could overlap with kick the dog, but only if they actually succeed.
