* About every villain in the ''Manga/DragonBall'' series performs at least one KickTheDog moment, from Nappa incinerating a city to nothing to Majin Buu transforming whole crowds of civilians into food and eating them and just minutes before he attempts to ''kill them all''.

* In ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', Femto/Griffith has a horrific KickTheDog moment within his larger scale MoralEventHorizon during the Eclipse. [[spoiler:Sacrificing everyone who had stood by him to a horde of demons]] was an act of irredeemable evil, but it had the understandable purpose of [[spoiler:giving him the power to rise from his physically and mentally broken condition as a member of the Godhand]]. However, [[spoiler:brutally raping Casca while [[ForcedToWatch making her lover Guts watch]]]] served no purpose whatsoever; he had [[spoiler: already gained power by dooming them to Hell (which you'd think would [[DisproportionateRetribution more than avenge]] any wrongs he felt they did him)]], and so the only possible reason for this particular atrocity was [[ForTheEvulz cruelty for cruelty's sake]]. Something unusual for him,reserved for the only person that made him doubt himself and forget his dream.

* ''Manga/YuGiOh'': Marik does this by brainwashing Jonouchi and Anzu, forcing Yugi to duel Jyonouchi on a 1-hour time limit where the loser will sink to the bottom of the ocean (or they both will if no one wins), and threatening to drop an explosive dumpster on Anzu if Kaiba interferes. And a while later, there's his MindRape of Mai...
** Kaiba himself has done this on at least a few occasions.
*** In one of his [[EstablishingCharacterMoment establishing moments]], he beats up Yugi after getting called out on stealing his grandpa's Blue Eyes White Dragon. In his next appearance, he kidnaps Yugi's grandpa and forces him to duel with the Blue Eyes White Dragon as an ante. After beating the latter, he takes the Blue Eyes and tears it up, sending the poor old man into shock and into the hospital. As if that weren't enough, he gets Yugi and his friends involved by putting them in [[AmusementParkOfDoom the Death-T Amusement Park]], with the former dueling in a life or death match.
* Kaiser Ryo in ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', following his FreakOut, originally just came off as [[DesignatedVillain an unfeeling, disrespectful jerk]] who liked dressing in black; if anything, his new bad-boy persona only [[DracoInLeatherPants increased his popularity]] in the eyes of the fangirls...until Episode 95. His brother Sho challenged him to a duel, so Ryo made them both wear shock bands on their wrists that would electrocute them when they took damage. He then spent the duel taking pleasure in watching Sho writhe in pain from the shocks, and almost kills him in the end. Let's repeat that - ''he did this to his own little brother''! Even if Sho was the one who issued the challenge, it was still uncalled for.

* ''Anime/YugiohZexal'' has Vector, both as [[TheCaligula a human]] and Barian. A list of his cruel actions as a human include murdering his parents, his own soldiers and subjects, burning to cinders the villages he fled through, forcing [[AFatherToHisMen Nasch]] into a Shadow Game with the (successful) intent of killing all his men and a little girl. As a Barian, he tried killing Nasch and Merag's reincarnations simply because he couldn't stand the former, mocked his injured comrades, orchestrated a BatmanGambit that left Yuma as a vulnerable nervous wreck ([[{{Sadist}} clearly relishing in that]]), killed with glee 4 other emperors, faked a HeelFaceTurn to fool Nasch into [[HoistByHisOwnPetard KOing himself]] and drive Yuma in despair even further. To top it all, [[AllLovingHero Yuma]] STILL tried saving him from being sucked into Don Thousand, and the UngratefulBastard tried to [[TakingYouWithMe drag him down with him]].

** Manten himself was no slouch. He and Hiten had killed and skinned a powerful fox youkai, and when the youkai's son Shippou confronted them, he noticed...that Manten was wearing his dad's fur around his belt. And Manten openly laughed about it in front of little Shippou. [[TheScrappy Think whatever you want of Shippou as a character]], but that was a '''seriously''' dickish move.

** Again in Part 3, Vanilla Ice kicks the dog (Iggy, heroes TeamPet) to reinforce his utter admiration of and loyalty to Dio. [[spoiler:Iggy had used his stand to create a sand-based image of Dio, and Vanilla Ice was enraged at being forced to destroy the image when it attacked him.]]

* No matter what you think of [[spoiler: May Wong]] from ''Anime/KaleidoStar'', not even [[spoiler: she]] ''deserves'' to have [[spoiler: Leon Oswald]] actually [[spoiler: ''deliberately'' dropping her on-stage and causing her to get seriously injured. just to test her worth as performer.]]

** Also, Nao, did you really need [[spoiler: to kidnap both Takumi and later Natsuki]]? The worst part is that [[spoiler:Mai, whom Nao tried to kidnap Takumi to hurt]] attempted to stop the fight in which Nao [[spoiler:lost her eye]]. [[spoiler: And then Karma, in the form of Shizuru, bloodily caught up with her...]]

*** Really not helped by how, before '''that''' puppy punting happened, [[spoiler: Shiho was both very ill and desperate since Yuuchi had broken a promise to her when she was in the hospital. Then, Nagi proceeded to groom the puppy to be kicked via going towards Shiho [[HeroicBSOD when she was at her lowest point]] and then [[ManipulativeBastard getting to her head]], which is soon followed by her FaceHeelTurn.]] It's no wonder that [[spoiler: at the end of the series, when the dead or defeated Himes gets better thanks to Mashiro, the remorseful Shiho quietly and sadly wonders if she ''actually'' deserves to be helping out in the final battle, and Yukariko has to reassure her.]]

** And then we have [[spoiler: Tabuki]] kicking some pups as well, when [[spoiler: he kidnaps Himari and Ringo (who is his long-time friend), locks Ringo away, and puts Himari inside a DeathTrap, all to punish the Takakuras for the death of Ringo's sister Momoka (which their parents caused).]] To his credit, he realizes how fucked up this is and [[spoiler: rescues Himari]] in the end.

* In the end credits for "[[PhantomOfInferno Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~]]", main character (and assassin) Zwei is depicted repeatedly shooting a target's sad-eyed dog after he's killed her. One assumes we're meant to take this to mean that he's edgy and dangerous in his brainwashed and confused assassin persona.
