* In''VideoGame/ThisWarOfMine'', you might encounter bandits or {{Sociopathic Soldier}}s while scavenging. Just in case you have any qualms about killing them (if you can), they will have convenient conversations about the evil things they've done. Highlights include murdering a priest, robbing a humanitarian aid transport, and letting a captive die of starvation.

** Done more literally in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'' by B.J's [[ArchNemesisDad abusive father]] Rip at the start of the game. Rip manages to be the most awful, racist and cruel piece of shit in a game with [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Nazis]] in it, 'nuff said. When he finds out B.J has been hanging out with an African-American girl, he beats B.J and his mother and kicks his little dog too. Then to teach B.J a lesson he drags B.J out into the shed in the back garden and forces him to shoot the dog; if B.J intentionally misses, he mocks B.J and takes the shotgun and does the job for him.

* She doesn't kick an actual dog, but give one to her, and [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Larxene]] would probably kick it. She does this trope enough, you'd think it was her job (then again, it kind of is.....)

** If you take out the Institute with the [[WeHelpTheHelpless Minutemen]], Proctor Quinlan will applaud you for using them as "cannon fodder" and can't seem to grasp that you led them instead of the Brotherhood because you had faith in their abilities as their General.

** Sheogorath, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[MadGod Madness]], is prone to instances of this:
*** In Volume XII of the ''16 Accords of Madness'', Sheogorath uses a BatmanGambit to get fellow Daedric Prince [[AllTheOtherReindeer Malacath]] to [[OffingTheOffspring kill his own son]], ''after'' promising [[YourSoulIsMine said son's soul]] to Sheogorath. Malacath isn't the nicest deity around, but it's a low blow nonetheless.
*** An almost literal case with Barbas, [[DealWithTheDevil Clavicus]] [[LiteralGenie Vile]]'s [[MoralityPet external conscience]] who takes the form of a BigFriendlyDog. For unexplained reasons, Sheogorath ''hates'' Barbas and seeks to poison him.

** Your companions get a few as well. Particularly notable examples include Anders and Fenris during Merrill's personal quests where they can be quite cruel to her, and Anders alone gets a couple kicks in with Fenris such as [[spoiler: mocking him for his breakup with Hawke in act 2 if he was romanced]] and, even more brutally, when he [[spoiler: happily approves of handing Fenris back to Denarius. He's the only companion that actually ''gains'' friendship points from this.]]

* In the Japanese dub of ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' (dubbed ''Rockman Dash'' in Japan), when you reach a scene where you have to get the dog Paprika away from Tron, players have the option of just merely kicking the dog, causing him to scamper away. In the english dub, however, players have the option of "telling" the dog to go away.

** Mega Man also had the option to kick cats and shoot birds in the Japanese dub which would slowly cause him to turn "evil": his armor would darken and if you made him evil enough you'd trigger a hidden cutscene where Roll, in her sleep, worries about all the horrible things Mega Man is doing and would ultimately [[LaserGuidedKarma cause her development costs to double]], while doing good things like giving her presents would turn him lighter again. This can still be done in the English dub, but only by kicking soda machines to steal drinks, kicking garbage into the Jetlag Bakery, or stealing money.
** [[spoiler:This is also your warning that [[BigBad Mega Man Juno]] is no joke. While [[QuirkyMinibossSquad The Bonne Family]] were willing to give threats, steal, and destroy the town itself, they drew the line before actual murder. When Juno announces his plan to "purge all the island inhabitants", the Bonnes are [[EvenEvilHasStandards disgusted by this]] and come to Mega Man's aid.]]

** {{VideoGame/Borderlands 2}}: [[SmugSnake Handsome]] [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Jack]] kicks the dog so much, you'd probably imagine he has them taped to his shoes, which makes his constant insistence that he is a hero all the more hypocritical. One of his biggest KTD moments is [[spoiler: killing Mordecai's longtime animal companion, Bloodwing. ''After'' performing horrific experiments on her, and turning her into a massive monstrosity]]. And this is ''before'' we learn [[spoiler:just what he has been doing to his own daughter Angel for the sake of getting to the Vault he wants to open, treatment so painful and horrific that she wants the Vault Hunters to kill her in order to end it]].

* As if his "Sound the retreat!" at the Battle of Ostagar weren't enough, Loghain's real Kick The Dog event is having his daughter locked up and threatening to let Howe execute her. Given that this is [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Dragon]] [[CrapsackWorld Age]], a realm far on the cynical side of things, he can still [[spoiler:join your team and become TheAtoner]].

** VideoGame/DragonAgeII doesn't give the player nearly as many brutal dog-kicking moments as Origins, but he/she can still do things like [[spoiler: hand Isabela over to the Qunari at the end of the second act, and give Fenris, an escaped slave, back to his former master during his last personal quest.]]

* In ''FireEmblem 7'', TheVamp Sonia sends her daughter Nino and teenage contract-killer Jaffar to kill the Prince of Bern for [[BigBad Lord Negal]]. She also gives Jaffar an order to kill ''Nino'', then [[OmniscientMoralityLicense justifies it]] HannibalLecture style by saying that the Prince's killer must be killed to avoid panic in Bern. Nino and Jaffar don't go through with it, and actually [[DefectorFromDecadence defect to your side]] after a QuirkyMinibossSquad member runs her mouth about Sonia's plan in front of Nino.

* In the John Woo game ''{{Stranglehold}}'', BigBad Mr. James Wong is shown early on to be an utter bastard when he reveals during his meeting with Tequila that he intimidated his own daughter Billie into breaking up with the CowboyCop on pain of death eighteen years ago while she was still pregnant with their daughter Teko -- and ordering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Tequila on top of it. Eighteen years later, after charging Tequila with the task of rescuing her and Teko from the Zakarovs and the Golden Kane, Wong decides to stick the knife in by [[spoiler: ordering Tequila's own partner Jerry to betray Tequila by murdering Billie after Tequila took out Damon Zakarov and trying to kill him as well, both to protect his syndicate (Damon had threatened to force Billie to reveal everyone on the payroll of her father's syndicate in order to keep Damon from killing Teko) and to deny Tequila the woman he loved forever in true rat bastard fashion]].

He takes several civilians prisoner and threatens to execute them if Micaiah doesn't surrender, and then [[ILied orders them killed anyway when she complies]].

** In ''American Nightmare'', Alan's EvilTwin Mr. Scratch kicks a dog every time he appears on the [=TVs=] in the game. His very first appearance has him strangling a captive with his own tie. "I beat some information out of him earlier, but this part? [[ForTheEvulz This is just for kicks.]]" Later recordings show him slitting the throat of one of Alan's fans and taking great pleasure in stalking Alan's wife.
