While the RealLife violent deaths of certain dictators and certain kinds of criminals might qualify for this trope, which ones qualified and which ones didn't would be endlessly debated, so we ask that you [[NoRealLifeExamplesPlease refrain from adding such Real Life examples]].

Further, there are structural reasons for engaging in this trope: Given that, in many of these situations, the story requires either a VictimOfTheWeek or an early death to make clear the stakes, putting an asshole of some variety in the corpse-shaped hole in your plot brings up less of the "Tonight, someone will be killed for your entertainment" FridgeLogic. Also, establishing that the victim was widely despised makes for a more challenging mystery because of the sheer number of suspects with motives.

** Pretty much anytime Chaos forces turn on each other is an example of this trope. The best example is the Battle of Skalathrax, where the World Eaters were fighting the Emperor's Children. The cold caused a lull in the fighting, until Kharn (later known as the Betrayer) of the World Eaters took a flamer and started setting ''both sides'' on fire. Before you start feeling bad about the Emperor's Children, they worship Slaanesh as well.
