* In the end credits for "[[VisualNovel/PhantomOfInferno Phantom ~m 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.

** When [[spoiler:Walter]] is revealed to have betrayed the Hellsing organization, [[spoiler:he]] shows [[spoiler:his]] true colors in truly despicable fashion -- namely, by [[spoiler:treading on the ashes of Anderson, who had just received a send-off worthy of a WorthyOpponent, and then calling him "garbage". This was enough to send Yumie, one of Anderson's most loyal subordinates, into an utter fury that got her sliced apart]].
* In the more recent anime adaptation of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', Hanzo delivers a horrifying beatdown to Gon in hopes of convincing the kid to surrender so that he could get his Hunter's license. He actually boasts that the first strike alone probably gave Gon a severe concussion. His attempts fail - Gon somehow manages to hold out for so long that Hanzo decides to forfeit rather than risk killing him (which would have caused Hanzo to lose his eligibility for the license) - but not before h breaking Gon's arm and enraging Gon's friends to the point that they threaten to burst into the ring and beat Hanzo to a pulp.

* In ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', 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, the ''very first thing'' Griffith did with [[spoiler:his new demon god power as Femto]], namely [[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.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'':
** BigBad Dr. Hell does not kick dogs. He catches their tails and flings them around, smashing them against a wall until they are a bloody pulp. Yes, it really happened in one of the manga versions. And it happened when Hell was a child. And it happened because he thought the dog was glaring at him (his AbusiveParents, [[SadistTeacher shitty teachers]] and [[KidsAreCruel bullying schoolmates]] were already wearing down his sanity back then).
** On the other hand, TheDragon Baron Ashura is not above petty acts of cruelty, but usually they have a purpose. Yet those acts include: hitting a child on his head to knock him out and steal his robot, blowing up the wheelchair of a disabled little girl to prevent her from escaping, ordering one of his [[{{Mook}} Iron Masks]] to kill a little cub whose mother had just gotten killed...

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': [[BigBad Tobi]] tried to kill a baby. And to make it worse, that baby was ''Naruto himself'', meaning the very first minute of his life had gone to shit.
** [[spoiler:Later on, not only does he directly cause Neji's death, but immediately afterward he taunts Naruto about failing to live up to his promise not to let his friends die.]]
** [[spoiler:Madara Uchiha has arranged death Rin, with the Zetsus intentionally bringing Obito just too late to help, to BreakTheCutie and get Obito on board with the Moon's Eye plan.]]
*** [[spoiler:And to make it even worse, he refuses to allow Obito to escape him and/or redeem himself.]]

** Orochimaru bringing back the 1st and 2nd Hokages to upset Sarutobi Hiruzen
** Pain [[spoiler: nearly killing [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Hinata]] [[ForcedToWatch right in front of Naruto]]. Made worse [[AdaptationExpansion in the anime]], by extending the fight into a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown]].
*** And if [[spoiler: nearly killing Hinata wasn't enough, Pain already has Naruto restrained; all he has to do is just leave and deliver him to the Akatsuki. Instead, he decides to twist the knife that much further by fatally wounding her out of spite. Needless to say, karma catches up to him ''very'' quickly when [[BerserkButton Naruto finally snaps]] and [[UnstoppableRage unleashes the Nine-Tails]].]]
** Deidara luring Naruto into fighting him by confirming [[spoiler: Gaara's first death]].
** The Fourth Kazekage, [[WellIntentionedExtremist while ultimately a man with good intentions]], kicked ''lots'' of puppies in order to keep his village afloat. Among them included sealing a well-known dangerous demon into his premature son Gaara ''while his wife was still pregnant with him'', an act that would ultimately kill her. Then, when poor Gaara was unable to control the demon, he sent Gaara's maternal uncle Yashamaru, who raised him, to ''assassinate'' him. When the attempt failed, Yashamaru told Gaara that he hated him and that his mother never loved before attempting a TakingYouWithMe by blowing himself up... all under the Kazekage's instructions. At the point, Gaara was only ''six''. His father constantly sent assassins after him since then, and by the time he was twelve, his youngest son had been driven insane to the point of becoming a psychotic SerialKiller.
