** It's stated that even at the height of the regime of the People's Republic of Haven, when they were clearly acting as the bad guys in general, anyone engaged in genetic slavery that fell into their hands could expect a short trip out the nearest airlock.

* Dark elf {{Literature/MalusDarkblade Malus}} {{VillainProtagonist Darkblade}} is a sadistic bloodthirsty spiteful backstabbing opportunist, so it really says something about the {{WarhammerFantasyBattle world}} he lives in that he still finds things there to be genuinly appalled about, such as the way his forest-dwelling cousins mutilate their dark elven slaves - cut out their vocal cords and ears and pluck out their eyes. Mind you, dark elves are very fond of torture as well, but the city-dwellers like Malus would usually finish off their victims after they're done with them, and definitely not force them to drag on such a wretched existance.

* In ''[[Literature/ConfederationOfValor Valor's Trial]]'' by TanyaHuff, the Others hit the ground battle from space with some sort of strategic warhead that fuses the entire battlefield and everything on it into smooth volcanic glass. According to [[spoiler:an Other lieutenant that [[TheHero Torin Kerr]] teams up with later on]], at least part of the Others' own ruling council considered this weapon horrific and tried to prevent its use.

* Mage-Governor Vaughn in the second book of ''Literature/StarshipsMage'' is perfectly willing to destroy one of his own cities to further his political goals. That there are some lines even he won't cross is rather terrifying.

* ''InDeath'': An example of this occurred in ''Betrayal In Death''. There was a trio of thieves named Naples, Gerade, and Hinrick. However, when Hinrick found out that Naples planned to have people working for Roarke murdered, he pulled out, greatly enraging Naples. Hinrick doesn't deal in murder, because he considers it ''rude''.

** The backstory features a case of "Even {{Jerkass}}es Have Standards." As teenagers, James Potter and Sirius Black were both major-league dicks, especially toward Severus Snape. But Sirius's attempted DeadlyPrank on Severus was too dickish even by James Potter's standards, which is why James saved Severus's life (and why Severus held a grudging [[IOweYouMyLife life debt]] toward James and, by extension, James's son Harry).
