** "Sharpe's Enemy": Richard Sharpe gets heartbroken [[spoiler:because his spouse was killed by his mortal enemy]] and in utter frustration, he destroys a French spy's glasses. He came to demand that the British surrender. It might have been partly PercussiveTherapy, but the spy was a jerk ass and had it coming. Nothing to gain from it, except it was a good way of showing the FrenchJerk who the alpha dog is.
** In "Sharpe's Honour", the jerkass spy plans an elaborate revenge because Sharpe's chosen men and the British army defeated the French in a battle that he thought was an easy French victory. After series of misfortunes, Sharpe ends up caught by the French. The spy smashes Sharpe's telescope that he received from Wellington himself. Nice try doing your revenge and trying to break Sharpe, jerk spy, but it was a bad idea. [[spoiler:Sharpe used one broken piece as a weapon and it helped him to escape.]]

* In an early episode of [[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Island]], [[AlphaBitch Heather]] deliberately tanks her performance in a talent show challenge by foregoing her planned dance act in favor of reading [[{{Goth}} Gwen's]] diary on national television. Not only was this such a pointlessly nasty action that it [[EvenEvilHasStandards even shocked Chris]], but this led to her team losing the challenge, which they would have definitely won if she had put forth an actual performance due to the huge lead in points they had built up after the first two rounds. The only thing that kept Heather from being voted off that night was PlotArmor.
