* In ''Series/WolfHall'', Thoms Cromwell needs men to convict as lovers of Anne Boleyn, so he picks men who (among other, more personal reasons) are "guilty, though not necessarily as charged." One of them is Will Brereton, whose family holdings are in Wales, and Cromwell brings up the a years-ago bowls match in which someone got killed. Brereton's response is a blithe "the game can get very heated."

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': An odd example: the demon Sahjhan spends a good chunk of the third season working against Angel, but when the two finally meet, Angel has no idea why Sahjhan hates him, driving the latter to disappear in fury. Of course, Angel was a bit justified in this: Sahjhan's beef was a ''future'' event that Sahjhan knew about from a prophecy. [[spoiler:A prophecy that he had even ''rewritten himself'' centuries before, so it was basically impossible for Angel to know about it]]. Granted, existing outside of time might mess with his perceptions a bit, but, really, Sahjhan's expectations just seem a little high.
** Played straight with Daniel Holtz, whose children were just two more run-of-the-mill victims for Angelus.

At one point Angel and Spike contrast their approaches as evil vampires. Spike loved the act of killing and never thought twice about the victims, so he's forgotten a lot of them, while Angelus was interested in the suffering and destruction of a human being on a personal level.

*** This happens often with Spike in season 7 of ''Buffy'' and season 5 of ''Angel''. He'll be honestly trying to help someone, and the rescuee wants nothing to do with him because he murdered their family--something Spike has no memory of.
*** In a different subversion, Spike is captured and tortured by a crazed Slayer who believes that Spike killed her parents. It is later confirmed that Spike was not responsible, but it doesn't make him feel any better about it, since he's killed so many people that it's not much of a consolation that he wasn't responsible for these ''particular'' deaths.

of. In a different subversion, Spike is captured and tortured by a crazed Slayer who believes that Spike killed her parents. It is later confirmed that one case, Spike was not ''not'' responsible, but it doesn't make him feel any better about it, since he's killed so many people that it's not much of a consolation that he wasn't responsible for these ''particular'' deaths.

* ''Series/Underground: In the episode "Firefly", John Macon says this about Josey, a runaway slave: "the worst day of that man's life was just another Tuesday in the office for me." Subverted in a sense because this isn't a villain being indifferent to his victims' suffering but a moment of shame for me.
