* In ''Manga/DeathNote'', Light is a vindictive KnightTemplar with a [[AGodAmI god complex]] and has been killing people with the titular notebook for ''years'', with [[{{Shinigami}} Ryuk]] saying that he wrote more names down in it in one week than any other person and overall comes off as a pretty bad guy. And yet when Mikami decides to expand his grip on the rules Light gives him along with the Death Note and starts ''killing lazy people'', even ''Light'' says that it's just wrong! [[PragmaticVillainy He admits in his head that he was considering doing this himself, too, but only eventually and thinks it's too early]].

** Note that this is the '''complete opposite'' of his original portrayal in the 60's manga, wherein Lupin was ruthless, murdered without a second thought, committed multiple rapes in front of the audience, '''lynched two police officers''', and was generally far more cutthroat.

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Piccolo decides to aid Goku in fighting Raditz because he wants to TakeOverTheWorld as opposed to Raditz' plan to KillEmAll. This and his time with Gohan are the impetus for his HeelFaceTurn.
** He's also pretty seriously indignant at the implication that he's going to eat Gohan when he takes him for training.
** Piccolo was also disgusted when Vegeta killed one of his Saibamen for failing to kill Tien (which makes sense since even King Piccolo was a FatherToHisMen). Nappa was equally shocked.
** Despite Vegeta's attempts to hide it, he was visibly disturbed when Frieza was crushing Gohan's head. And in the English dub at least, despite his hatred of Goku, he's absolutely disgusted at Android 19 [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown ruthlessly beating on Goku and sucking the life out of him while Goku is suffering from a deadly heart virus]], even going so far as to call him out on it while beating him up.

* Enishi from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' [[spoiler: slaughtered a family -- babies and young children included -- who nursed him back to health, just because he was sickened at the fact that they were living happily while his older sister Tomoe was dead]], but it's been implied that he doesn't kill young women. Not that Enishi might not want to kill them, but because he psychologically ''can't'' kill young women because of the nature of [[spoiler: Tomoe's death, who was around 17/18 when Kenshin accidentally killed her in front of a 10-year-old Enishi]]. This was why [[spoiler: Kaoru (who is around the age Tomoe was when she died) was spared in Enishi's plan for revenge against Kenshin, and instead of being downright murdered, Enishi went through the trouble of hiring a master puppet maker to craft an extremely elaborate doll in Kaoru's exact likeliness.]]

* The main villain, Dr. Eggman, from ''SonicX'' who once tried to blow up a city of completely innocent people, can't stand torturing victims as shown when he witnesses [[WouldHurtAChild Black Narcissus torturing Chris and Cosmo]] and he says, "I'm not above evil myself but torturing people is just plain wrong."

* ''DGrayMan'': [[spoiler: Wisely]] used an ExpositionBeam to show another character [[spoiler: Kanda's childhood memories.]] [[spoiler: Allen is sickened and profoundly pissed off, and Kanda is in a HeroicBSOD state. ''[[TheStoic Kanda.]]'']] Even the local villainous CreepyChild Road, who delights in Mind Raping people, seems to be upset by it.
* Towards the end of the LiveActionAdaptation of ''Manga/DeathNote'', Misa Amane, previously an amoral mass-murderer at worst and a PsychopathicManchild at best, is genuinely shocked and starts to cry when Light [[spoiler:writes his own father's name into the Death Note]]. Which is justified, since it comes from [[spoiler: her being an orphan with serious issues about it and having that side of her being given much more attention than in other DN media.]]

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', Vector is more evil ''by far'' then the other six Barian Emperors, and ''none'' of them like him very much. (Alit, especially, seems to have nothing but contempt for him, and Durbe actually had to [[LetMeAtHim hold an angry Mizael back]] to prevent him from attacking Vector after he insulted the defeated Alit and Gilag.) In fact, Vector appears to be the only one who has actually been witnessed doing ''anything'' that could be truly considered "evil", other than fighting the good guys. (Gilag has {{Brainwashed}} a few people, but such victims don't seem to be permanently harmed by it.)

** Jotaro, while being a protagonist of Part Three, is openly introduced as rough delinquent who casually admits that he's a bad person, but even ''he'' has lines he won't cross in his first battle with Kakyoin:
--> ''"Look. No one ever said Jotaro Kujo was a nice guy. I beat the crap out of people, more than I have to; some of them are still in the hospital. I've had idiot teachers who liked to talk big, so I taught them a lesson... and they never came back to class. If I go to a restaurant and the food's bad, I make it a policy to stiff 'em with the bill. But... even a bastard like me can spot true evil when he sees it! True evil are those who use the weak for their own gain, then crush them with their foot when they're through! Especially an innocent woman! And that is exactly what you've done, isn't it?! And your Stand gets to hide from the victim, the law and the consequences! That's why... '''I will judge you myself'''!"''

* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', depraved BloodKnight Hisoka has an unhealthy interest in the potential of Gon and Killua to become worthy opponents he can fight and kill in the future. Even he thinks that Illumi's obsession with his younger brother Killua is creepy.
