** The first culprit in ''Dual Destinies'', [[spoiler:Ted Tonate]], killed a detective who [[HeKnowsTooMuch found some evidence of the culprit's wrongdoing]], but was not the one who set the bomb to blow up the courtroom, and sounded the alarm to get the people to evacuate. Somewhat similarly, [[spoiler:his final bomb threat in his VillainousBreakdown is also a bluff]].

** A conversation overheard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' has a turian smuggler asking a human smuggler if she still has a ship and is looking for work. He then suggests that there are a few crates of medi-gel in customs, bound for Alliance soldiers, that they could make off with. When he asks her what she thinks of this, she responds that she thinks she should slit his Goddamn throat, and proceeds to angrily berate him for suggesting that they screw over the people who are fighting and dying for the galaxy, ''especially'' while her homeworld is being burned to the ground.

** A Renegade Shepard also shows a moment of this in the ending of ''Overlord'', when a scientist tortured [[spoiler:his vulnerable autistic brother]] in an attempt to communicate with the geth, and then pleads with Shepard to allow the experiments to continue. In [[AntiHero keeping with]] [[IDidWhatIHadToDo characterization]], Renegade Shepard agrees, but breaks the scientist's jaw and tells him he's a sick bastard who's only walking away from the encounter alive because his cruel experiments could end a war. [[spoiler:[[SenselessSacrifice The later revelation that the geth are mostly peaceful renders the man's experiments utterly pointless]].]]

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', on the planet Kadara, you can find a pair of ex-Cerberus scientists who got kicked out of the organization by the Illusive Man for their experiments, which basically boil down to reprogramming alien brains to forcibly meld living people's minds together to create an organic super-computer. Considering some of the other Cerberus projects seen in the original trilogy, that's saying something.

* In VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'', when the woman who is now only known as the Hag went overboard with her powers to the point of sacrificing her physical attractiveness, the Ancestor became disgusted and lost any more interest in dealing with her.
* Father Knoth, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/OutlastII'', has no issue in murdering his own kin. He will not, however, murder the children of his followers, merely suggesting/forcing them to do so. [[spoiler:True to his word, he cannot bring himself to kill Blake's newborn child. He merely suggests that Blake do so before [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled slitting his own throat]].

* Morkvarg in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' was a notorious pirate who razed villages and raped women all across Skellige. After he murders a group of priestesses in a sacred garden to prove he didn't fear the gods, one of his crewmen decided a line had been crossed and used a cursed pendant to turn him into [[WhoWantsToLiveForever an immortal werewolf.]]

* This is very frequent in the ''Franchise/SuperRobotWars'' franchise:
** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'', dies this a lot to the villains of ''Anime/CrossAnge''. [[Anime/GundamSeedDestiny Lord Djibril]] berates Emperor Julio in his face for his arranged public execution of Ange since the [[AwakeningTheSleepingGiant political repercussions that will lead to Misurugi's inevitable downfall]]. [[Franchise/GetterRobo Satamoe]] fires back at Embryo for calling the Shin Getter Dragon his "greatest creation" with a speech that would not be within [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Mayuri Kurotsuchi's]] domain. And finally, [[spoiler:[[Anime/FullMetalPanic Leonard]]]] backstabs the guy in the back after [[DoIReallySoundLikeThat realizing how reminiscent, if not worse, Embryo was to him.]]

** And in ''VideoGame/SlashEmExtended'', a chaotic (dark) Jedi is punished for attacking a peaceful monster because it violates the way of the Jedi. Averted for chaotic knights though; knigts only need to follow their code of conduct if they're lawful.

* ''Videogame/YandereSimulator'':
** Delinquents will chase you down and knock you out if they witness you murdering someone or carrying a dead body. They also don't take kindly to you [[spoiler:being possessed by the Flame Demon]].
** Yan-chan is openly disgusted with Info-chan's modus operandi. (Demanding PantyShots as payment for info in order to sell them.)
** ''However'' Info-chan draws the line if offered such pictures taken from corpses or unconscious girls, though that may also be her [[GenreSavvy knowing better]].
** In the debug builds, if you choose to talk to Kokona when you meet her on the rooftop rather than push her over the railing to her death Yan-chan will sound audibly disgusted upon hearing that [[spoiler:Kokona's father is being extorted by loan sharks, and her tone of voice when she says that she's gonna get him out of debt could be interpreted as TranquilFury]].

** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'': *** [[spoiler:Lord Djibril]] expresses utter disapproval for Julio's attempt to publicly execute Ange. For it has [[AwakeningTheSleepingGiant provoked several nations and organizations]] throughout the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise (notably ''SEED'' and ''00'') into taking action against the Founding Nations and publicly revealed the existence of Dragons.
