** In the episode "The Coon", when Cartman (as a raccoon-themed superhero known as The Coon) gets Professor Chaos (Butters' super-villain persona) to [[Film/TheDarkKnight blow up a hospital]] to lure out rival hero Mysterion, Professor Chaos laments on how he finds blowing up hospitals mean and reprehensible. As a villain, Professor Chaos is more prone to [[PokeThePoodle poking poodles]] than [[KickTheDog kicking dogs.]]

** Randall Weemes was a snitch who rats on his fellow students for Mrs. Finster, sometimes even doing something elaborate so he'd have an excuse to snitch (such as when he framed the entire school with a food fight that he instigated). However, the one group he isn't willing to snitch on are higher authority figures such as King Bob, which made him tell off the Ashleys' brothers when they did actually manage to do so after recruiting them. This is also implied in the movie, when, after one of Phillium Benedict's followers tried to pin the blame on Benedict for everything to get out of punishment, and stating that he himself was only following orders and desperately bargaining that he'll "offer evidence for the state trial", Randall remarks in disgust [[HypocriticalHumor "Jeez, what a squealer."]]

*** Another element to factor in is that Randall is disgusted the follower is offering to squeal on Benedict for the sake of getting out of punishment, whereas Randall snitches to Miss Finster to keep the playground under control. And is likewise disgusted because this guy is selling out his boss whereas Randall views Miss Finster as his only friend.

** In sequel series ''Beast Machines'', Megatron is working towards genocide and Thrust is fine with that. What really angers Thrust is Stryka, Obsidian and Jetstorm ([[spoiler: though Jetstorm was forcibly reformatted]]) turning ''traitor''.

** One of the things Discord says to Princess Celestia after escaping his [[SealedEvilInACan stone imprisonment]] evokes this:
-->'''Discord:''' Did you miss me? I missed you. It's quite lonely being sealed in stone, but you wouldn't know that because ''I'' don't turn ponies into stone!
*** Of course, he turned Equestria into a hell on earth solely for his own amusement, and has a habit of MindRape and BreakTheCutie, again solely for his own amusement, [[MoralMyopia so it's hard to sympathize with him.]] Not to mention he only seemed mad about that because it [[ItsAllAboutMe happened to him]], and given that he's even more powerful than Celestia, there was literally no other way to stop him.



* Sunset Shimmer in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''. She could have killed Twilight early in the movie, but declined to. At the climax, she had her minions take Spike hostage to lure Twilight and her friends to her, but then she let him go instead of trying a HostageForMacGuffin; she explicitly said that she wasn't a monster. [[spoiler:She tried to kill Twilight after the Element of Magic transformed her into a demon, but she wasn't entirely in control at that time; when she was turned back, she had an instant HeelRealization.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': Mojo Jojo shows occasions of this;
** He was fairly and understandably angry when the Powerpuff Girls beat him up when he was simply sleeping. Even more, when he found out that the Gangreen Gang had incriminated not only himself but also HIM and Fuzzy, just for the fun of it. He teamed up with the other villains to teach them a lesson.
** He was also disgusted with Buttercup's idea of beating him and other villains up for money, apparently seeing it as too brutish.
** When Mojo once traveled back in time to stop the existence of the Powerpuff Girls, he got to see just what a brat Professor Utonium was in his younger days. He did not like what he saw.
** In the movie when his ape army starts to turn on him with their own plans he's pretty weirded out and outright disgusted at some of them, finding their plans crass and lacking class.

** Even ''HIM'' has his standards. He got reasonably angered when the Gangreen Gang prank called the Powerpuff Girls to break the roof of his home, and when Buttercup beats him and other villains up for money. He teamed up with the other villains to give both her and them a lesson.

** The Duplicator (voiced by LewisBlack) getting revenge on Birdman by getting him jury duty. When Birdman has only a $3 food voucher and chimichangas cost $27.90. The Duplicator starts rubbing it in his face until he realizes how bullshit that kind of price is, breaking into one of Black's trademark rants. He then makes a bunch of copies of Birdman's voucher.

** Nelson constantly shows shades of this, in one case beating up Bart for wasting Mrs. Krabappel's time in class. He also avoids punching kids in the face on school picture day, and comforts Milhouse after his parents divorce, because that's a problem he can relate to. (Although later episodes seem to [[DependingOnTheWriter disagree on the marital status of Nelson's parents.]] Also, Nelson in one of the Halloween episodes (specifically the one that parodies ItsTheGreatPumpkinCharlieBrown) is shown to have little to no tolerance against racism, as he tries to save the student body from a rampaging [[strike: Great]] Grand Pumpkin (long story short, he got angry when he learns that they kill pumpkins to make stuff like pumpkin pie or jack-o'-lanterns) by holding a yellow pumpkin hostage. The Great Pumpkin scoffs that killing a yellow pumpkin would be a waste of time as he hates them. Nelson calls the Grand Pumpkin a racist and adds "I would rather die than hate!" before getting eaten.

** Stan's lifelong dream has been to be the best man at someone's wedding, and came close to doing so when he hooked up Principal Lewis with the school superintendent. However, despite how badly Stan wanted this, he was absolutely disgusted when he learned Lewis' life [[BeenThereShapedHistory was the basis]] for ''Series/DifferentStrokes'' and his friend Dudley really was molested by the bicycle shop man.

* Gargamel might be pretty nasty in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' but even he saves the life of a stray cat that his godfather Balthazar wanted to kill just because the cat was Azrael's friend.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': Gargamel might be pretty nasty in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' and Azrael both have lifelong goals to destroy the Smurfs and gain untold wealth, power and respect ... but there is a point where even he has pause in helping people he has formed alliances with to carry out his wishes. Examples:
** In one episode,
he saves the life of a stray cat Azrael has befriended that his godfather Lord Balthazar wanted to kill for her fur ... just because he saw Azrael had found (gasp!) love and companionship.
** In another episode, Gargamel and Balthazar have kidnapped Puppy and plan to take
the cat was magical locket from around his neck, in an effort to gain access to its powers. When initial tricks are unsuccessful, Balthazar proposes placing Puppy in a guillotine and chopping his head off (no, seriously) ... to which Gargamel decides this whole scheme to destroy the Smurfs isn't worth it.
** During [[ChristmasEpisode the Smurf's 1982 Christmas special]], Gargamel -- in exchange for a scroll that he uses to burn down the Smurf Village on Christmas Eve -- turns over two children (who have become separated from their grandfather after a sleigh accident) to a stranger, who unknown to him plans to take them away (in revenge for their uncle always thwarting his plans to overthrown his kingdom). Later, when The Stranger thinks Gargamel has betrayed him[[note]](after he tells the children's relatives they are and who they are with)[[/note]], he forces him and Azrael to join them in accompany them on "The Final Journey." Gargamel, realizing that the children's lives are in danger [[note]](it is implied The Stranger plans to have the children suffer AFateWorseThanDeath before they are finally killed)[[/note]] refuses to go along with his plan and, after at least two escape attempts are stopped, is forced to rely on Papa Smurf to save his,
Azrael's friend.and the children's lives.
