"They killed her master, now she'll kill everyone."
— Description for the Black Lagoon Story Arc, "Roberta's Blood Trail"

"Do not dwell on this. I will not even let one live. With my own hands, I will slay them all."
Captain-Commander Yamamoto, Bleach

"Now it's your turn to taste some terror of your own! I won't kill you outright, but I will show you just how horrifying the Getter Robo can be!"
Ryoma Nagare, New Getter Robo

Imagine one day your home is suddenly attacked by monsters. They swagger into your village like it belongs to them. They kill your friends, they kill your family, they loot your home.
Imagine that they assault your sister. they torture her, they rape her, they kill her. They desecrate the bodies of your family, do whatever they want, cackling all the while. And you see it all from where you're hidden, trying not to breathe.
How could you ever let that go?
So you get a weapon, you train yourself, you learn, you grow. Everything you do is to help you take revenge. You search them out, hunt them down, you fight, you attack, and you kill them and kill them and kill them and kill them.
Sometimes things go well, and sometimes they don't. But each time you ask — how will I kill them next time? What's the best way to kill them? Day after day, month after month, that is all you think about.
When you get a chance, of course you test every idea you have. And when you've been doing all that long enough....
You start to enjoy it.

"Listen here! I am beating all of you back down to hell. Tell those pale-faced bastards for me! If I get hit, I will hit back! Tell them, leaving me half-eaten is gonna be the end of you! I will hunt and kill all those wretched monsters, and all of you, down to the last one! THIS IS MY DECLARATION OF WAR!"
Guts, declaring war on the Godhand, Berserk

"I don't care who you are, it doesn't change that you are my enemy."

Miek: Two-hands, what saying you?
Hulk: Why ask me? You know what you want. You brought us here to get it.
Miek: But what... what would you doing?
Hulk: I'd never stop making them pay.

"There’s a dream I have from time to time and in the dream, I don't stop. I kill the soldiers and the hitmen, the extortionists and racketeers, the dark old fucks who send them out to fight. I hold the trigger down until they’re all gone — but I don’t stop. The innocents are watching, just like always; the slack-jawed thousands, gazing at the beast. My family lay red and shredded in the grass. I face the crowd and bring the weapon to my shoulder. "If my world ends," I tell them, "so does yours" The recoil starts and I wake up. It’s just a dream, I always tell myself. "It’s just a dream. It’s just a dream.".
Frank Castle, The Punisher MAX

"They just tried to kill my boyfriend and everyone I care about. Just tell me who I can kill for this."
Asuka, Advice and Trust

"Don't get upset. Get fucking even. The moment that motherfucking shitface sticks his head out from prison, with that pasty-faced prick and mist lad, I'm going to rip every single one of his insect infected teeth out and shove them so far up his ass that even divine intervention won't save him from them being embedded in his fucked brain. I'd rip his fucking face off and beat him to death with it, but All Might beat me to it first. I fully fucking expect you to be there helping break every single bone in his fucking body while I do."
Katsuki Bakugo regarding All For One and the implied fate of his childhood friend Tsubasa, Conversations with a Cryptid

"December 11th, 2013: Prosecutor Sae Niijima is murdered in her own home. December 12th, same year: Detective Makoto Niijima is put on suspension by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department after assaulting a superior officer who denied her request to work her sister's case. December 13th: Three dozen low-level gang members are hospitalized in one night, all claiming to have been attacked by a woman with brass knuckles in a mask. December 20th: Detective Makoto Niijima formally resigns from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. December 24th: The yakuza hitman Kanta Iwasaki, AKA 'the Cleaner', is found beaten within an inch of his life, his home thoroughly damaged in the process. His broken body — which he was unable to move because the assailant left him paralyzed from the neck down — was wedged through a wall in his kitchen. When he was removed, this wall was found to contain a secret storage space with several years worth of documentation of his communications with various clients, including a recorded conversation with Diet member Masayoshi Shido requesting the assassination of the late Prosecutor Niijima. Shido is arrested, as are multiple associates of his also named in the Cleaner's files."
Naoto Shirogane, The Phantom Queen

"A Howling Hellcat Humping A Hot Steel Hog On A Roaring Rampage Of Revenge!"
The poster for Bury Me an Angel

Viggo: One day, [John Wick] comes to me, says he wants out. It was over a woman, of course. So I gave him an impossible task, a job no man could pull off. The bodies he buried that day laid the foundation of where we are now. And now, my son, a few days after his wife dies, you steal his car... and kill his fucking dog!
Iosef: Father, I can make this right!
Viggo: Oh? How do you plan that?
Iosef: By finishing what I started.
Viggo: (to Avi) ...did he hear a fucking word I said!? (to Iosef) John will come for you. And you will do nothing because you can do nothing, so get the fuck out of my sight!

"'Just a dog.' Viggo... When Helen died, I lost everything, until that dog arrived on my doorstep. A final gift from my wife. In that moment I received some semblance of hope... an opportunity to grieve unalone. And your son... took that from me. Stole that from me. KILLED THAT FROM ME! People keep asking if I'm back, and I haven't really had an answer. But now, yeah, I'm thinking I'm back! So you can either hand over your son, or you can DIE SCREAMING ALONGSIDE HIM!"

Santino: Look at you. You're thinking about it, aren't you? Counting exits, guards. Could you get to me in time? How would you do it, I wonder? That woman's pen? His cane? Or maybe his glasses?
John: My hands.

"(I'm gonna do) What I do best. I'm gonna kill 'em. Anyone that was involved. Anybody who profited from it. Anybody who opens their eyes at me"

"I killed them. I killed them all. They're dead. Every single one of them. And not just the men, but the women and the children too. They're like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals! I HATE THEM!"

It had previously occurred to me that the gypsy had taken the death of his mother rather lightly. But for every action there's a reaction. And a pikey reaction is quite a fucking thing.
Turkish, Snatch.. He's not wrong.

"I will not sacrifice the Enterprise. We've made too many compromises already, too many retreats. They invade our space, and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no farther! And I will make them PAY for what they've done!"

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."

"I want revenge. I want them to know that death is coming, and there's nothing they can do to stop it."
John Rambo, Rambo: Last Blood

"The man who took my thumbs? I found him eventually. I killed him. The man who took my photograph, I found him too; that took me a year. He's dead. Another man showed the Germans a way to get their spies into Cairo. I've been looking for him..."
David Caravaggio, The English Patient


If there should follow a thousand swords to carry my bones away,
Belike the price of a jackal's meal were more than a thief could pay.
They will feed their horses on the standing crop, their men on the garnered grain,
The thatch of thy byres will serve their fires, when all the cattle are slain.
But if thou thinkest the price be fair — thy brethren wait to sup,
The hound is kin to the jackal-spawn — howl, dog, and call them up!
Rudyard Kipling, Ballad of East and West

"'Vengeance is mine,' saith the Lord, but tonight, He is going to damn well have to share."

Remember, Lord, what the Edomites did on the day Jerusalem fell. "Tear it down," they cried, "tear it down to its foundations!" Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is the one who repays you according to what you have done to us. Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.
Psalm 137, Verse 7-9, New International Version

In that war-cry is the downfall of thy house. The blood-cemented fabric of Front-de-Boeuf's power totters to the foundation, and before the foes he most despised! The Saxon, Reginald! The scorned Saxon assails thy walls! Why liest here, when the Saxon assails thy place of strength?

Agent Archer: What do we do now?
Agent Franks: Fucking kill everyone.

Dragosani, I have seen a sister with her head cut off, with a stake through her breast and her eyes hanging on her cheeks, and I did not weep. No, but I pursued her slayers and skinned them and made them eat their skins. And I raped them with hot irons and before they could die, soaked them in oil and put them to the torch and hurled them from the cliffs at Brasov! Only then did I cry - tears of sheerest joy!
Thibor Ferenczy, Necroscope

Billy-Ray [talking about how Valkyrie is about to be tortured] You mind if I take some pictures?
Valkyrie: Knock yourself out.
Billy-Ray Hey, thanks, little girl.
Valkyrie: No, seriously, run headfirst into the wall and knock yourself out, because I'm telling you, you will want to be unconscious when Skulduggery gets here.

Hiro: I understand the depth of your feelings, but don't you think you've had enough revenge?
Raven: There's no such thing as enough.

It was time to go home to a city that feared and despised me. It was time to kill, and I didn't care how many or how powerful they thought they were. Lynas had always been my conscience, urging me to use my powers wisely and well, but now my friend was dead and that "wisely and well" could fuck itself. I would rip his murderer apart, and then I would deal with these Skallgrim that thought they could hunt me with impunity.
The deal was off, and so was my leash.
The Traitor God, by Cameron Johnston

"I have returned. Let vengeance begin."
The Traveler/Sol (Spoiler Filler), Warrior Cats

"Tauvo is dead — struck down by a weak... pathetic... inferior being. It must be avenged! I swear in Tauvo's name, Crichton, you will die in my hands."
Captain Bialar Crais, Farscape

"I don't remember having felt this much hatred since the akki called K. The despicable Bakenezumi called Yakomaru will have to pay. I vow to subject him to agony no living being has ever suffered before as he dies a slow, protracted death."
Tomiko Asahina, From the New World

"And to my son, the stallion who will mount the world, I will also pledge a gift! I will give him the iron chair that his mothers father sat upon! I will give The Lands of the Andals. I, Drogo, will do this! I will take my khalasar west to where the world ends and ride wooden horses across the black salt sea as no khal has done before! I will kill the men in iron suits and tear down their stone houses! I will rape their women, take their children as slaves and bring their broken gods back to Vaes Dothrak! This I vow, Drogo son of Bharbo! I swear before the mother of mountains as the stars look down in witness! AS THE STARS LOOK DOWN IN WITNESS!"
Khal Drogo, Game of Thrones note 


Avenge the dead killed all who crossed me in my path
Suicidal, I never planned on coming back
I want it, I need it, revenge is dripping from my teeth
Need nothin', to feel power, and bring the killers to their knees
Nothin' ta lose vengeance ta gain (you know I'll never be the same)
So taste my breath I'm close behind you (so desperate on your final day)

The crowds grow denser by the second
As we near the center of the town
And they dig a trench right in the main square right there
And they pick me up and throw me down
And I start laughing like a child
And I mark their faces one by one
Transfiguration's going to come for me at last
And I will burn hotter than the sun...
— "Heretic Pride" by the Mountain Goats

Miles and miles away
Paved through the blood of the fray
Torn between Hell and Makai
There, but for vengeance, go I

Cast demons, angels aside
Torn them apart far and wide
The indestructible few,
What then will happen to you?

Hellfire nipping at Achilles' heels, I kill
So you know exactly how it feels
Nothin' gonna stop me till I take you down, you see
You'll see me but you'll never hear a sound

You tear my home apart, then I'll get you and yours
I'm a power you've not seen before
Where do you go when you die in Hell? I guess
when I get to you, time will tell
Time Will Tell, a fansong exploring Reimu's mindset in Touhou Reiiden ~ Highly Responsive to Prayers

Although their heads may shake, we'll set the city ablaze for their treachery
We'll spill their blood and set our fathers free...
— "Years Of War" by Porter Robinson

I'm killing them all, I'll put my soul on the line,
I'll purify sins that I committed in life.
I'll follow them all, and I'll be bringing them down;
Wherever they go, I'm right behind.
There's nowhere to go, your head on the line;
There is no rope, you're running out of time.
So where will you go when I will murder your soul?
— "Murder", Within Temptation

We're rolling like thunder,
we burn and we plunder,
The Principle of the scorched earth.
Civilians are dying, the children are crying.
But this is the way of the world.

Savannah here we come!
this is the final march!
The star spangled banner waving over us tonight!
Savannah soon it's done, you must surrender.
There is no glory in defeat, but Hell is far away!
— "Savannah", Civil War

"Sleep? I never sleep. I just wait. In the shadows. And I will kill you all! EVERYONE WHO SNIFFED THE AIR THAT DAY IN SIWA!!!"

Asura, Asura's Wrath

"My armies are all slain. My castle lies in ruins. My enemies have taken everything from me, all my wealth and power. But they could not kill me. I still walk the earth, weak but alive. They have taken everything but the beating of my undead heart. Now they will learn of fear, these mewing babies who thought they could destroy me. I shall regain my powers, and I shall come to them in the night. And my visits shall not be kind."
Kain, Game Manual for Blood Omen 2

Torture at the hands of the enemy only feeds the hunger for revenge.
— Level description for "Payback", Call of Duty: Black Ops

"Dragovich. Kravchenko. Steiner. These 'men'... must die."
Viktor Reznov, Call of Duty: Black Ops

"This is for Soap."

In the first age, in the first battle, when the shadows first lengthened, one stood. Burned by the embers of Armageddon, his soul blistered by the fires of Hell and tainted beyond ascension, he chose the path of perpetual torment. In his ravenous hatred he found no peace, and with boiling blood he scoured the Umbral Plains seeking vengeance against the dark lords who wronged him. He wore the crown of the Night Sentinels, and those who tasted the bite of his sword named him... the Doom Slayer.
Slayer's Testament 1, DOOM (2016)

"The hands of death could not defeat me. The Sisters of Fate could not hold me. And YOU will not see the end of this day! I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE!"
Kratos to Zeus, God of War III

I killed Webb and Rudabaugh. Gonna kill Hoodoo too, and a certain jack preacher, and that one-eyed pig they work for.
Colton White, Gun

"Mine wasn't the most original approach to the problem. It wasn't as if it hadn't been all done before. An eye for an eye, the first principle of revenge, old as dirt, still going strong. The cardinal rule in going after someone with an intention to kill was not to make it personal, which it almost always ended up being anyway. It did with me."

"Everyone deals with grief differently, right? Some people fuck at funerals. I cut off heads."

We pull in money, recruits, all to combat Cipher. Rubbing our noses in bloody battlefield dirt. All for revenge.

I am the Swarm. Armies will be shattered. Worlds will burn. Now at last, on this world, vengeance shall be mine. For I am the Queen of Blades.
The killing will never stop until Mengsk is dead.
Sarah Kerrigan, StarCraft II

"I swear I won't stop, until I've scrapped each and everyone of you!"
Sharla, Xenoblade

Shulk, Xenoblade

"Im takin' every last one of you... straight to the pits of Hell. NOBODY LEAVES ALIVE!!!"
Goro Majima, Yakuza 0


I'm not gonna let anything get in the way of my revenge! For my wasted time...for this scar... for... for Talus... For that, I'll kill her! I'll shred her wings! I'll tear her limb from limb! Gouge her eyes!! Rip off her face!! I'LL DESTROY THAT STUPID ANGEL! You hear that, Kieri Suizahn?! I won't rest until my claws are drenched in your blood!!

"You wanna talk about the truth? I saw firsthand last night that the truth does hurt. And maybe I should've seen it coming, but damn it Paul, I trusted you, and alls I have to show for it now is these thirteen staples in my head!"

"But another truth is that you know me better than anybody, and you know when I'm lying and you know when I'm telling the truth. And you know when I want something bad enough I am the most relentless man on the planet! And I will not stop until I get it! And the truth is Paul, I'm gonna get you."

"This time I swear on your children that I am gonna get you! And I will get everybody that conspired against me, every single one of your associates. Everybody who profited from it, everybody who had knowledge of it, anybody who enjoyed it! Your friends, your clients, your family! Anybody between the time I get my hands on you and now that steps in between you and I and opens their eyes at me, I will get my hands on, and I will RIP APART, and I will HURT!"

"You want the truth? The truth is you don't have a future, because I'm gonna burn down everything around you until you're the last man standing and I'm gonna keep you alive just long enough to look you in the eye and hurt you worst of all. So tell me, you son of a bitch... AM I LYING?"
CM Punk to Paul Heyman, WWE RAW, 15 July 2013

Sometimes combat is simply used as a way to tell your enemy that you thought about what they did and fuck them.



How well does it match the trope?
