In the first fight scene, after the Bride kills Copperhead (Vivica A. Fox), she tells her daughter that if she grows up and still feels raw about it, she’ll be waiting.
Im just referring to the concept of killing someone with their child as a witness, and telling the child its unfortunate but when you grow up, revenge will be waiting.
I really didn’t start thinking of where this particular concept originally came from until I saw the same exact concept in very first scene in the anime Afro Samurai:

In Afro Samurai, it seems to be the driving force of the series, the revenge of the child…
In Kill Bill, the concept didn’t seem to lead to anything in the plot, but seemed to help chararcter development of the Bride as it showed the respect and honor she had.
Maybe just a concept from an early samurai, kung-fu or spagetti western movie that has been borrowed a few times over the decades?
