* 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.

* Amusingly, ''Anime/{{Digimon Adventure 02}}'' uses this trope literally: [[spoiler: Ken, while still the Kaiser, kicks a small dog for no other reason than because he can. He also kicks his Digimon, Wormmon, on numerous occasions.]]

* 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.

* In the fourth arc's witches' tea party in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[spoiler:Lambdadelta and Bernkastel]] cracking up at poor [[spoiler:Ange's]] terrible fate was one of the big shots across the bow to keep an eye on those two.

* In ''{{Kinnikuman}}'', Mixer Taitei does an almost literal example (but ratchets up the brutality) by needlessly killing a helpless puppy with his blender blades, thoroughly establishing him as one of the most monstrous heels Kinnikuman would ever face. In ''Nisei'', you also have Dialbolik/Tel Tel Boy killing famous wrestlers just to get an audience's attention.

* ''Anime/YugiohZexal'' has Vector, a Troll and CompleteMonster all in one, 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]].

** Araki has made this basically into an art. Besides the examples mentioned above, in Stardust Crusaders there's also Yellow Temperance who kills a dog in front of the kid his owner. Then we have the encounter with Justice - where the first eerie sign is the sight of a freshly impaled dog. Death 13 kills a dog in front of Kakyoin (in a dream, but the Stand's power is that those who are killed by it in a dream die in real life. The dog was sleeping nearby). Then Part 4 begins, and before you know it, Angelo bites the face off a dog in front of his owner because he's pissed that he stepped in its poop earlier.
