Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BrightBurn'' [[AvertedTrope Averted]] ''hard''. All of Brandon's victims are normal, decent people who in no way deserved their fate. It doesn't help that the trailer vastly overplayed how much he was bullied by his peers, and the [[JerkassHasAPoint people hostile to him had good reason to be]].


* ''Film/Shazam2019'': When Sivana was a child, his [[AbusiveParents father]] and [[BigBrotherBully brother]] continuously mistreated him by talking down to him and [[NeverMyFault blaming him for an accident that wasn't even remotely his fault]]. It is even indicated that their cruelty towards him ''worsened'' after the accident. Forty-four years later, [[FromNobodyToNightmare Sivana]] [[TheDogBitesBack releases the Seven Deadly Sins upon both of them]]; the brother being thrown out of a glass window and the father being finished off by Greed. The latter is especially meaningful since he was a greedy, hypocritical asshole who constantly harassed his own son for "crying for mercy", ''when he himself was crying for mercy when suffering from the wrath of his abused son.''

** [[spoiler:Marilyn Batson, Billy's biological mother. For callously abandoning her toddler son in the open without telling him (even if with trusted authority figures), she warranted every second of her current predicament.]]

*** Nedry, who drives the whole plot, is about as unappealing a character as he could possibly be without doing intentional murder. And Wayne Knight plays all his slovenly abrasiveness with [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Newman]]-esque glee.

Needless to say, nobody mourns him when he gets blinded and eaten by a ''Dilophosaurus'' whom he was being very condescending towards.
