Follow TV Tropes
This is not something worth a full-blown "back to blueprint", I hope, but I did asked while this trope was being structured: would horror stories in which a Serial Killer goes after people who break rules count? Breaking them in general or the guy goes murderous after they break this one rule he set?
Yep, I'd say so. Assuming they're the supernatural sort, or at least being portrayed as unstoppable.
Then it's a problem, I guess. I can point out one example of a Criminal Minds killer (the "Fisher King") who goes completely berserk when the heroes break the single rule he set (no press) and nearly kills one of the heroes (by breaking into her apartment and shooting her while yelling that "I GAVE YOU ONE RULE!!!"). It was a pretty spooky cliffhanger.
I think I can think of another couple of guys, but will need time.
Well, this trope's more about the supernatural, rather than people setting rules while threatening people, so...

How well does it match the trope?
