* ''Series/TheWalkingDead'': Negan has no problem brutally murdering innocent people in front of their loved ones, but he does not tolerate rape and outright executes his own men on the spot if they are caught trying to rape somebody.

** The reason for this becomes clear in Season 3 when it's revealed HYDRA is an AncientConspiracy dating back millennia and really has nothing to do with the Nazis except the Red Skull using them for his own purposes.

** Similarly, a Dalek will spare a life if the death of that person by some other means is a fixed point in time.

** They are also appalled when Ralphie brutally kills a stripper whom he ''impregnated''. While they can't kill him due to him being a made man and that the stripper had no blood relation to them, they would've probably done so had they been allowed to.

* ''Series/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents2017'' has Count Olaf's theatre troupe, who, though alright with threats, are horrified whenever their leader actually harms one of the children. The Hook-Handed Man in particular gets ready to catch Sunny when Olaf holds her over a table. [[spoiler:This is likely foreshadowing; in the books, the White-Faced Women eventually quit in disgust, and the Hook-Handed Man switches sides.]]

* ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'': Mrs. Oleson and Nellie surely were the most vile, wicked characters in the series. Nellie has played plenty of cruel tricks, mainly on Laura, but it was mostly to assert herself and her family's prominence in the community; she never would stoop to such things as assault or putting people's lives in danger, as her adopted sister, Nancy, would later do. As for Harriet, while she has spread lots of vile gossip about people she didn't like or get along with largely, the Ingalls family, the Garveys, Mr. Edwards, Doc Baker, Rev. Alden and any of the schoolteachers she drew the line at outright racism (although she is bigoted, it's largely her being a product of her time), theft, murder and hatred for children. She notably admitted in one episode she made a mistake in having schoolteacher Miss Beadle fired and replaced by someone who hated all children (especially after hearing the new teacher's rant about how children disgust him), and told a racist farmer to shut up when he went on a tirade about white and black people being seen together.

** Speaking of, even Cersei herself is visibly shocked and horrified by some of [[TheCaligula Joffrey]]'s mad antics. First off, she (and Pycelle) are seen frantically trying to dissuade him from having Ned executed (although this could also be less caring about Ned's life and more because, being GenreSavvy, they know it would lead to a CivilWar), and secondly being shaken to the core by Joffrey's suggestion that he serve [[spoiler:Robb Stark's head to Sansa]] at the wedding feast and pretends he's just joking. In fact, the ''entire'' Lannister small council has this shaken reaction.

Added DiffLines:

** The Hound, who rode down an innocent peasant boy in "The Kingsroad", has an obvious distaste for seeing women abused as shown by his protective actions with both Sansa and Arya. The Bluray extras mention a DeadLittleSister when enumerating suspicious deaths attributed the Sandor's brother Gregor.
** Tormund is a pitiless wildling raider who kills innocent villagers without hesitation, but even he hates the CannibalClan Thenns.
** Subverted by Rast, who is very conflicted about leaving a baby in the snow, but ultimately goes through with it after covering the baby's face to dehumanize it.
** Ygritte, despite presenting a much darker side all season, spares Gilly and her child in "The Mountain and the Viper."
