* In ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', VandalSavage quits [[LegionOfDoom the Society]] when they attempt to have his daughter Scandal killed for refusing to join up with them, though given that Savage was perfectly okay with arranging for her to be raped to impregnate her with an heir for him, this was probably less about morals and more about pragmatism.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'' Nerissa, an insane villain whose endgame included an act that could have destroyed the entire universe, identifies the Tower of Mists as Kandrakar's prison and admits that even ''she'' is terrified of the inmates. Considering that her crime against Kandrakar [[FallenHero back when she was one of the Guardians]] was murdering her best friend and fellow Guardian and threatening Kandrakar with absolute destruction and was ''not'' imprisoned in the Tower, that speaks a lot of the inmates besides Phobos.

* Despite being an AxCrazy PsychopathicManchild operating on BlueAndOrangeMorality, Negan from ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'' has a surprising number of standards. First, he wholeheartedly believes in RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil, to the point that he has been willing to execute his own men out of disgust at seeing them commit rape, and been willing to fight to save strangers who were about to be raped. Second, he despises cowards and betrayers, and on several occasions he [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves killed]] or otherwise refused to work with people who wanted to sell out their own side to him. (By contrast, [[YouGotSpunk he shows much more respect to opponents who stand up to him]].) Lastly, he despises the SocialDarwinist outlook, particularly their attitude towards weaker people, and at one point gives another character a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech over it.

** When con man and embezzler Warren White pleads insanity to get himself sent to Arkham instead of prison (read: '''''HUGE MISTAKE''''') and all the various supervillains are treating him as a free target out of disgust, even The Joker is repulsed by him and declares that while he's killed many people, "he didn't steal their kid's college funds".

** In a Batman and Comicbook/SpiderMan crossover, the Joker briefly teams up with Carnage, but quickly becomes disgusted with him when he realizes that Carnage won't bother with the theatrical black comedy the Joker lives for, and is just in it for pure bloodlust.
* In the first crossover between Spider-Man and Superman, Lex Luthor and Doctor Octopus join forces to create a worldwide hurricane, to blackmail the planet for ten billion dollars.

This is too much for Octopus, and he smashes the machine generating the hurricane.
