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

* Despite being a hero (well, AntiHero), Lelouch from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' gets a definite KickTheDog moment when [[spoiler:he orders the slaughter of anyone connected with the Geass as part of a RoaringRampageOfRevenge for his close friend Shirley's murder. Since a Geass user killed her, his anger is somewhat justified, but taking it out on ''civilians and children'' is the point where it crosses into this or [[MoralEventHorizon the other trope]].]] Yes, it IS true that [[spoiler: the scientists were hardly innocent, but the kids were both ChildSoldiers ''and'' victims of said scientists's experiments (which made them into ChildSoldiers in the first place)]].
** It's meant to show that [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope Lelouch was definitely losing it]]. On the other hand, considering that one of the [[spoiler: Geass Users, given the chance, quickly steals one soldier's body and uses him to kill his team-mate, and shows no reaction for doing so]] it clearly drives home the point [[spoiler: Cornelia]] gave in the previous episode: you never, ''ever'', give [[spoiler: Geass Users]] an opportunity. Just take a step back and think about it - Lelouch kills three or four dozen heavily armed soldiers over the course of the series [[spoiler: using the same method]] simply because they give him the few seconds needed to make eye contact, and can create a small army with a half-hours work. Lelouch knows just how stupid it would be to take chances. They're not even victims: [[spoiler: they're fully trained child assassins, armed with the most powerful of personal weapons - mind control - possess absolute loyalty to the master that's fed and trained them for as long as they remember, and have no morals or compassion for human life.]] They're dangerous. So, this is more of a [[IDidWhatIHadToDo "Shoot the Cerberus"]] moment, because he can't win with any other method, and he can't run, because they'll attack him, and he can't defeat them if they have the advantage of surprise, and he's only avoided them because they don't realise he knows about them.

* 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.
