* God's punishemnt to Azrael seems a bit harsh. He sends the ones who rebelled and fought against him to Hell, fair enough. Azrael gets the same treatment for refusing to fight on either side. Was there something wrong with purgatory?

* In ''Film/{{Swordfish}}'', Creator/JohnTravolta's character explains that this is the entire point of the secret government organization he works for. Whenever someone commits an act of terrorism, their organization responds with an extremely escalated response. This is done so terrorists will think twice before striking, lest they find themselves at war with a shadow organization fully willing to vaporize entire towns in response to a few dead American hostages.

This is the whole reason for the entire movie: he needs enough funding in order to arm himself with old Soviet nukes to threaten terrorists with.

* In ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', the title character is almost sentenced to death for disguising herself as a man to join the army in the place of her old father. General Shang decides to spare her because she saved his life and fires her instead. This is likely a case of DeliberateValuesDissonance.

* ''Film/RatRace'' has some. Taxi driver lost some money after a botched football game. When the referee of said game enters his cab, the driver goes into the desert, takes the referee's shoes, socks and panta and abandons him there. Cheating on a helicopter pilot leads to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1MxtNFdd4s this]]. And God help you [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfgELYaSYhMif if you don't buy a squirrel.]]
* In ''Film/TheReplacementKillers'', Triad boss Terrence Wei puts out a contract on Officer Zedkov's seven year old son. Zedkov's crime? Killing Mr. Wei's son, a grown and unrepentant Triad gangster, in a drug bust. The son Zedkov begged to NOT go for the gun because he did not want to shoot him. That might not be too bad, but when John Lee refuses the contract on a seven year old boy, Wei orders the execution of Lee's mother and sister back in China.

* Mr Big, a crime boss from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' is willing to go above and beyond when he believes he's been wronged no matter how small the infractions may be. He's willing to "[[DeadlyEuphemism ice]]" Judy and Nick because Nick conned him [[spoiler: into buying a fur rug... made from the fur from a skunk's butt]], as well as Duke Weaselton. He's ''kinda'' justified from the examples we see - [[ItsPersonal he considered Nick part of the family until Nick pulled that con]], and Duke not only [[spoiler: supplied an ingredient to the poison which drove both his florist and driver insane]] but also [[spoiler: nearly killed Big's pregnant daughter when he was running from the cops]].
