How about not allowing Real Life example since that could run in a few problems?

Hey, a lot of these are actually Pay Evil unto Evil. Anyone else want to help clean it up?

Alright, I think we should make some slight changes to the trope, because the example provided doesn't explain what happens if the attacker knows the victim is evil, but kills him for unrelated reasons.

Here's an idea for an addendum example to Kick the Son of a Bitch, since it seems knowing about the background, but not caring about it, screwing them over for their own, deranged reasons is its own reward to them.

After the robbers make their getaway, one of the robbers turns out to be Backstabby McGee, who frequently kills his partners for a bigger share of the cut. However, his partner's mask comes off in the alleyway and Backstabby recognizes him as Don the Rapist. However, Backstabby has no moral qualms against Don, he just kills Don because he wants his money.

The "Video Games" section falls into a bit of a grey area, because this trope is defined by the act having malicious intent despite the victim deserving it, and in video games, intent can vary depending upon the player.

Is it just me who thinks a lot of these examples fall more under "Pay evil unto evil"?

No, it's not just you; loads of them do. Feel free to remove them - I've taken out some. In particular, most of the "Comic Books" section fell into that category.

Okay. We shall see to it whether or not those deleted examples can qualify as Pay Evil unto Evil or not.

How about renaming this into something that's shorter?

Is there a reason there's no "Films - Animated" section? It seems like Gru taking out his frustration at being denied a loan on Vector via freeze ray in Despicable Me would be a perfect example of this trope.

This trope page also acts as an index. Is this intended or just an oversight? I'd suppose it's an oversight.

Edit: Thank you, unknown problem solver!
