** Cersei Lannister is less "Kick the Dog" and more "Execute the Direwolf". Not the direwolf that actually did anything, just the one who happened to be convenient at the time. This also counts as a kick the dog moment for Robert Baratheon, who could have stopped it but didn't, (and later reveals that he was well aware [[RoyalBrat Joffrey]] was lying,) just because he wanted a break from being a HenpeckedHusband.

* Maybe [[ValuesDissonance the cultural standard is a little different]], or perhaps it's at least partly for shock value, but this editor has read a number of horror shorts (most by [[RumikoTakahashi Takahashi Rumiko]]) in which the villain's first evil act is killing a dog. Sometimes eviscerating it.

Adding an example.
* Little Willie Connolly in J.R. Lowell's 1972 thriller ''Daughter of Darkness'' is a DeliberatelyCuteChild and a super-intelligent ChildProdigy, and secretly a practicing witch. She asks her parents for a kitten, but her mother buys a [[http://www.petmd.com/sites/default/files/breedopedia/maltese3.jpg Maltese]] puppy instead. Unfortunately, Willie's expertise doesn't extend to the fact that she could easily have made the little dog her {{Familiar}} (a dog like that would have clinched the Cuteness Factor besides averting AllWitchesHaveCats). Using a combination of animal psychology and a cursed charm, Willie cold-bloodedly arranges to have her puppy run into heavy traffic in midtown Manhattan. The next day she has her kitten.

* Marian from ''Literature/{{MARZENA}}'' just love kicking the dog. If she's not beating up or flaying MLK, she'll be playing mind games with poor ShrinkingViolet Lauren, spoofing her holo contact lenses with graphical glitches and asking her to do things against her better judgment. Then there's Livia and her SecretTestOfCharacter where she sends Zo to kill Lauren, and [[spoiler: they fake Zo's death just as a psychological test to see Lauren's reaction]].
