* In the ''[[ComicBook/TheSandman Sandman]]'' issue about the serial killers convention, one of the convention attendees tells another that he got his start by cutting off the heads off of kittens. Notably, the guy was the most sympathetic person in the convention. He clearly understood he was sick, but lacked courage to turn himself in. It's implied that he was looking for peer support for just that.

* In ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' Franchise/{{Superman}} blames Batman and Wonder Woman for [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]] getting kidnapped by Darkseid when she should have remained in Metropolis with him. Wonder Woman reminds them her sisters nearly sacrificed herself to protect her. Then Superman said if it was Jason Todd or Donna Troy, they wouldn't even be arguing about this. Batman tells him Kara isn't dead. The three of them got quiet. Superman realized he crossed the ''[[ComicBook/TheSandman Sandman]]'' line mentioning Jason and Donna. Near the end of the story arc, he apologizes for it. Ironically, a year later both Jason and Donna came back.

* [[Comicbook/{{Superman}} Doomsday]] has several, including crushing a small bird and beating up a little boy and his cat. To be entirely fair, though, it's not like he can help it, as he was raised to see anything and everything as a threat that must be destroyed. Then again, [[http://www.actionfigurepics.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Doomsday-kills-a-bird.jpg he laughed his ass off when he crushed that little bird...]]

* ''ComicBook/GodLovesManKills'': Just so you know Rev. Stryker is evil before you even meet him, his legions kill two unarmed six-year-olds and leave their corpses in a playground for other small impressionable children to see. Then once we do meet him, turns out he murdered his wife and child, his most loyal henchperson, and tried to kill Shadowcat, who at the time was a cute teenage girl.

While everything else he does is justified or serves some useful purpose, at least [[MugglePower from his own point of view]], the initial act of villainy is a quite glaring instance of pointless StupidEvil.

* In ''King of Klondike'', the eighth chapter of ''Comicbook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'', Soapy Slick kidnaps Scrooge, steals his plot of land and reads his mail. When a letter from home reveals that Scrooge's mother had died, the villain mocks the young duck for it and tells his cronies to kill him. No wonder [[BadAss Scrooge went berserk and trashed the entire steamboat they were on]].

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Judge Death, when he was still a living human named Sidney, started his long career of evil by literally killing the family dog. After he realized how much killing something pleased him, he just kept going further and further into complete depravity without ever looking back, eventually becoming an [[OmnicidalManiac enemy to all living things]].

* The recent ''InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' comic book tie-in seems to be built on this. The first half seems made up of the world kicking as many dogs as possible to drive Superman insane, while the second half seems to building up to Superman kicking as many puppies to make Batman try to stop him more.

* Even when he claims to be doing things for the greater good, SelfDemonstrating/{{Sinestro}} always takes the time to kick a puppy or two along the way. One example that is close to a MoralEventHorizon would be [[spoiler: killing Kyle Rayner's mother via the living virus Despotellis and calling her a cow to Kyle's face -- all to turn him into Parallax's next host.]]

* Not that Jody from ''{{Preacher}}'' needed any further proof of his unredeemable bastardry, but in a feat fitting for the trope, he went beyond kicking Jesse Custer's pet dog Duke when it made the mistake of humping his leg: ''he nailed it by the head on a fence''.
