* In an issue of ''ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}}'', Jason Macendale (aka the Hobgoblin) tries to sell his soul to the demonic [=N'Astirh=] in exchange for increased power. [=N'Astith=] responds by laughing in Macendale's face, telling him that his soul is so warped and disgusting that not even a demon would want to buy it.

** She shows another side, along with other villains, at the end of ''Illuminati'', when the Hood suggests that they kill the Avengers' families. This, along with finding out that he also enforced a HeelFaceDoorSlam to get her to join him and his group, is enough to get everyone to quit and, for good measure, has Titania destroy the Hood's hood, [[BroughtDownToNormal rendering him powerless once more.]]

** 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".

** Some people consider the Joker's [[spoiler:murder of Sarah Essen-Gordon, Commissioner Gordon's wife,]] in ''ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand'' this. After he [[spoiler:shoots her]], he walks away from the scene frowning, without a single word. As those other tropers have said, if the Joker himself doesn't think something is funny, it's seriously wrong.
*** Which is why seeing the Joker ''stop'' laughing in his cell at Arkham was one of the creepiest harbingers of [[spoiler:the ascendancy of Anton Arcane and his fellow escapees from Hell in ''ComicBook/SwampThing'']].

* Lobo. For all of the OmnicidalManiac that he may be (just remember what he did to his homeworld), he will ALWAYS stick to his word. ALWAYS. However, Lobo often only keeps the letter of his word, not the spirit, doing ''exactly'' what he promised and nothing more... and God help you if you harm his beloved space dolphins.
** He was, however, kicked out of Hell and granted immortality so he wouldn't come back. For obvious reasons, Heaven didn't want him either.

** Though given what Ezekiel gets up to in that story arc, it's pretty obvious he's kind of a hypocrite, even if he did mean that seriously.

* Creator/MarvelMAX Bullseye is one of the few people you wouldn't expect to have standards, seeing as he's done many horrifying things over the course of his self-titled arc in PunisherMAX, even the deaths of [[spoiler:''four different families'' in just a week, consisting of a wife, a son and daughter, slaughtered to reenact the death of Frank Castle's family, so he could feel how Frank feels.]]. But he, of all people, is not a [[GoodSmokingEvilSmoking fan of smoking.]]

-->'''Trickster''': The Rogues never let Kadabra play our little reindeer games. We told each other he was so pompous and throwing his education in our faces. Truth was, he scared the hell out of us. We were a little crazy but jeez, Kadabra was just insane.
** When he discovered a female cop he had a one-night stand with had produced a child, Weather Wizard tried to kidnap the infant, intending to sacrifice him and absorb his power. At the last minute, gazing into the baby's eyes, Wizard realized he couldn't bring himself to kill a baby, let alone his own son.

* In ''[[ComicBook/AthenaVoltaire Athena Voltaire and the Brotherhood of Shambalha]]'', Desmond Forsyth says that Ethan Storm studied under Creator/AleisterCrowley (who, in real life, got dubbed "the wickedest man in the world"), but that Crowley "found Storm to be too intent on exploring the ''dark'' side... which is saying ''a lot''".
