Often occurs in the form of BodyguardBetrayal. Very similar to MistreatmentInducedBetrayal. Subtrope of HoistByHisOwnPetard and KarmicDeath. See also NiceToTheWaiter. Not to be confused with TheDogShotFirst. If the dog biting back does some puppy-kicking of its own, it's HeWhoFightsMonsters. If it's a pack biting back it's LaResistance, and TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized if they fall into evil themselves. If the hero deliberately sets this situation up, it's DoWithHimAsYouWill. If it's the villain biting back against the world, it's ThenLetMeBeEvil.
