** In part 3, Petshop (an evil hawk) ate two dogs in front of their kid owner as slowly as possible ForTheEvulz. And his smile, ugh.
** Again in Part 3, Vanilla Ice ''literally'' kicks the dog (Iggy, the 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.]]

** 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 [[CrossesTheLineTwice and spits it down its owner's throat]] because he's pissed that he stepped in its poop earlier.

** Long before he became a vampire, Dio Brando, BigBad of Parts 1 and 3, introduced himself to Jonathan Joestar by kicking his dog Danny in the head, pictured at top. Then later, he sets the dog in the incinerator and tricks the butler into to burning the dog to death. What an asshole.

* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'': In the backstory, Kakeru Manabe had the gall to [[spoiler:tell Tohru to her face, ''right in the middle of her mother's funeral'', that she wasn't the only one who lost a parent (the father of his girlfriend, Komoki Nakao, was the driver who hit Kyoko, and he also died in the accident), and she was [[QuitYourWhining being whiny and disgusting for openly grieving]]. Komoki is rightfully furious at him for saying that, and nearly breaks up with him.]]

Komoki Unlike others, he gets his karma back at him immediately: [[WomenAreWiser Komaki]] is rightfully furious at him for saying that, that supposedly "for her sake", calls him out on his bullshit, and nearly breaks up with him.]]



* Whenever Wakamatsu Madoka, the heroine's bitchy [[TheRival rival]] in ''Manga/FullMoonOSagashite'', looks like she might be getting too sympathetic, she is shown being cruel to her adorable pet pig, thereby cementing her reputation of bitchiness.

* While Togenishia and Yabooki from ''Anime/HanaNoKoLunlun'' were mostly a GoldfishPoopGang, sometimes [[MoodWhiplash they did shockingly terrible acts.]] An example happens in the Netherlands arc when [[spoiler: they kidnap the talking dog Nubo and almost kill him by drowning, to force a depressed Lunlun who's tempted to come back home for a while go back in track]]. Another takes place in the Italy arc, where [[spoiler: Yabooki almost blows up an OrphanageOfLove that Lunlun is trying to help via attempting to activate a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII bomb in its yard that the kids are trying to use to force people help their IllGirl companion.]] The worst one happens in the GrandFinale: [[spoiler: destroying the flower field that Lunlun's grandparents planted with their own hands in the nearby grassy hill, which was actually planted ''thanks to the seeds sent by the friends Lunlun made during her travels''.]] For no other reason than being butthurt because Lunlun was taking some days off. [[spoiler: And then [[OhCrap it blows in their very faces]], since the only flower that survived... was the MacGuffin aka the Seven Color Flower, which grew there ''specifically'' because the field was made with tokens of love.]]

** In what seems to be a trend for this trope involving dogs, episode 8 of the third season has a girl named Mioi Hatsumi who owns a chihuahua and lives in a building with a woman named Shimatani. Shimatani attempts to get Hatsumi's dog kicked out of the apartment, and finally ends up poisoning the dog and causing Hatsumi to fall off a balcony. No guesses on what happens to Shimatani soon after.

** 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. Shippou is no fan favorite, but that was still a '''seriously''' dickish move.

** Also, did Nao 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]].

** Another example is [[spoiler: Masako and Mario's grandfather Sanbei, who treated his grandchildren really harshly. First he kicked their father and the eldest son Kanba out of the clan merely because Dad wasn't as strong as he wanted. Then he burned all of the remaining kids's toys and memorabilia - including a letter that Masako got from her dad, despite little Masako's pleas.

** Gendo Ikari, Shinji's father and the commander of NERV, has a laundry list of these, most notably his horrible treatment of his own son Shinji. Episode 18 especially stands out, where Gendo cuts Shinji off from control of Unit 01 and activates the Eva's Dummy Plug system, essentially forcing Shinji to tear apart an angel and kill his own friend against his will. Because of the way the Eva works, the synchronization meant that Shinji could ''feel'' every moment of the ordeal. And the reason Gendo did this was to teach him to follow orders. He's not any kinder to the other characters -- he uses Ritsuko and later throws her away, uses Rei like cannon fodder and continually [[CloningBlues brings her back to life]], uses Asuka like expendable cannon fodder and throws her away when she stops being useful...

** Arlong. He kills little girl Nami's mother, and forces Nami to be his navigator. He tells her she can buy back the village at a high price. A few years later, Nami (now a teenager) has saved up all the money from her work with the Strawhats and is happy she's about to save her village so everyone can put the shark-man occupation behind them. Unfortunately, Arlong decides it would be a good idea to tip off a slimy military man so that he can take all of Nami's hard-earned money, putting her right back where she started and driving her nearly to despair. This heartless moment is what convinces Luffy that Arlong needs his ever-loving ass kicked.

** Touga himself, being a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] [[TheCasanova playboy]], also does plenty of dog-kicking over the course of the series. Some of his actions are comparatively petty, such as burning his childhood friend Saionji's exchange diary right after he'd promised to take care of it for him while he was gone. Some others, however, are downright horrific, to the point of making his abovementioned sister a far more sympathetic character: [[spoiler:while Nanami is convinced that she and Touga are NotBloodSiblings, Touga seduces one of the members of her GirlPosse (Keiko, who is herself a backstabbing FalseFriend) and coldly claims that he has no sister and that ''he never actually loved Nanami'' -- and that's just the ''beginning'' of what he does to her in episode 32!]]

** In the ''To Ruile Flame'' prequel, [[spoiler: Sameo kills Yumi's best friend Hanabi for no real reason]].



* Choji Suitengu does this constantly throughout ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' (just as often KickTheSonOfABitch, actually). He has people who can't pay their debts killed and cashes in their life insurance policies, and [[BreakTheCutie the things he puts]] [[TheWoobie the teenage Kagura]] through would make him a monster, were it not for his FreudianExcuse and PetTheDog moments.

** When Enrico Maxwell arrives in London with his army, he proves himself to have become just as evil as Millennium by ordering his men to kill everyone in the city, who are ''already'' having to deal with the Vampire Nazis, due to his hatred of Protestants. This [[MoralEventHorizon horrible act]], in addition to earning the disgust of Alucard and Integra both, is enough to turn his most loyal agent, Alexander Anderson, against him.
