* Doomsday's first appearance in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. In the comics, he killed Supes (He got better). However, Supes' evil universe counterpart, Justice Lord Superman, used his eye lasers to ''lobotomize Doomsday'' not five minutes into the fight (he got better too, and was mighty pissed, but that's another story).

** Borderline case because he's not a ''bad'' guy, though he has apparently had his moments : Giles kills Glory while she is in her human form because Buffy won't kill a human being.

Subtrope of NonProtagonistResolver; in this case, the "resolver" is the villain. Contrast VillainousRescue, where a villain pulls a BigDamnHeroes without committing any villainous acts in the process. If the villain saves the day by accident through doing something villainous, that's NiceJobFixingItVillain. Overlaps with TheDogBitesBack when the "dog" is a minion. See DisneyVillainDeath for when there is no other bad guy to do the work, so it is done by gravity. Compare AlwaysABiggerFish, when a usually non-sapient monster saves the heroes from another monster.

** The series does this ALL THE TIME considering how many villains die from the hand of other villains-often for all the wrong reasons. The Penguin does this most often thanks to his tenuous, but not quite antagonistic so far, relationship with Jim, compared with the other criminals.

* Similarly, in Transformers ''ComicBook/MoreThanMeetsTheEye'' Whirl believes he's already a monster, and knows that sometimes to keep people safe there are difficult decisions in which there is no winner. He is willing to make those choices so that good people aren't forced to do bad things.



* Though he's not a villain, in Transformers ''ComicBook/MoreThanMeetsTheEye'' Whirl knows that hard choices must sometimes be made, and seems to believe that good people shouldn't have to do bad things, so he (believing he's already a monster) is willing to do them himself.
