* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': In "El nuevo cate", one of the priests that comes to the T.I.A. building prevents Mortadelo and Filemón from killing a cockroach and gives them a long speech about the sanctity of life that gives them a brutal headache... but when other agent appears with a machine gun and tells the priest he is going to kill several criminals, the priest only blesses him and sends him on his way.
** Actually, priests and clergymen fall often under this trope. They are almost always showed as very obese people that eat and drink copiously, then donate a small coin to feed the poor "because gluttony is a sin".

* ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'':
** In a [[BeachEpisode beach story]], Iznogoud falls into a hole covered by a towel and sprains an ankle. The hole turns out to be a prank pulled by a boy whose father berates Iznogoud for not liking "childish pranks". Inspired by the prank, Iznogoud tries to get rid of the Caliph with a similar hole but instead gets the boy's father, who angrily shouts [="I'LL TEACH YOU TO PLAY STUPID PRACTICAL JOKES!"=].

* In an ''[[ArchieComics Archie Comic]]'', Archie, Betty, and Veronica are at the beach. The girls refuse to sit near the lifeguard as they usually do because they hired a woman lifeguard. Naturally, Archie would like to be near there, but the girls are turned off by the guys going "goo-goo-eyed" over her. But when the shift changes and a muscular guy takes the lifeguard stand, Betty and Veronica waste no time moving near the lifeguard -- and endlessly swooning over him.

* A rather dark example in ''Huntress: Year One'': Barbara Gordon and two colleagues from the justice department are attending a conference on organized crime in Italy when the news comes out of the murder of notorious crime boss, Capo di Tutti Capi Stephen Mandragora, and they toast his death at a local bar. A woman at the bar berates them for this, saying "'''Never''' toast someone's death," and that "it's naive to think death solves anything." All of which sounds quite reasonable, except that the woman at the bar, Helena Bertinelli, the Huntress, is the one who killed him!
