** In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', Jabba the Hutt [[FedToTheBeast feeds Oola, a defiant Twi'lek slave dancer, to his pet rancor]]. While it does set up for Luke's battle with the beast later on, it has little point other then to show how cruel he is.

* ''Film/TheSearchers'': In this classic John Ford western, JohnWayne is frequently compared to the antagonist -- a Comanche chief named Scar -- but is differentiated in that while Wayne [[PetTheDog pets the dog]] before Indians raid his family's home early in the film, when we later see Scar at his camp before the cavalry raids them, Scar throws a rock off screen at a yapping dog, and we hear a pathetic whimper a second later.

* ''Film/{{Hondo}}'': Apache warrior Silva kills the title character's dog out of spite. Suffice to say that killing JohnWayne's canine companion is not a good idea.

** Barbosa gets one in the first film, when he maroons Jack and Elizabeth, but refuses to give them a second loaded pistol - he expects Jack to do the honorable thing and shoot Elizabeth, and then starve to death himself.

** Barbossa in the fourth film. When his ship and crew are being swarmed by mermaids, he refuses to help or even ''recognize'' their plight, passing it off as "seagulls nesting" when the officers point out their crew's screams of terror. Admittedly, it's not like he could have actually saved them, but it was still pretty cold.

Added DiffLines:

** When the Fat Clown objects to Penguin's plan to kidnap and kill the first-born children of Gotham as revenge for his own ParentalAbandonment (a crossing of the MoralEventHorizon if there ever was one), Penguin simply takes out a revolver and shoots him.
--->'''Fat Clown:''' I mean, killing sleeping children. Isn't that a little... err...?
--->'''Penguin:''' (BANG!) No, it's a lot!
** He also tries to run down a little old lady while going on a rampage with the remotely-hijacked Batmobile. Batman takes back control and hits the brakes just in time to keep her from being splatted.
--->'''Penguin:''' Helpless old lady at twelve o'clock high!

** Also, the Red Queen having a talking frog decapitated just for stealing her food. As if that wasn't cruel enough, she then proceeded to instruct one of her footmen to go to the frog's home and collect his children, for the sole purpose of ''eating them''. "I love tadpoles on toast." To add insult to injury, she concludes this scene by making a remark about loving tadpoles as much as caviar... while addressing a talking fish in a-not-so indirect threat.

* Main/GranTorino: Walt's family insult his dead wife and do not give a crap during her funeral,''their grandmother's funeral'' and his granddaughter expresses her desire to him to leave her his car when he croaks. Needless to say he doesn't respond well.
