** Wrong. He first assures, that in current codex commited crime can be punished by death, otherwise it would be law breaking commited by himself. He just always picks the most severe option.

* [[TheCynic Shijima]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Gou]] from ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' has all Roidmudes classified as pure evil and most of time he is pretty close. Enter Chase, their NobleDemon top hitman. As if that was not bad enough, Gou soon learns that [[MySisterIsOffLimits his sister]] maybe in love with him. He loses a few marbles afterwards.

** [[spoiler:Turns out demons "cursed" him a millennia ago]]. It's not confirmed if that is the main cause of his insanity, but it probably prevented him from getting psychological help.

** To complicate things further, one of the scientists at the organization has a theory about her black and white insanity: she had to develop such a twisted view of the world or she would have awoken much sooner; [[spoiler:the secret to cultivating a strong Awakening involves a contradiction of self hate. Claymores hate Yoma, which are fueled by stress (and human entrails), but Claymores ARE part Yoma. Thus, the more they hate the Yoma and themselves, the more stress they develop, and the more inner power they can possess when they awaken. Priscilla in particular had the perceptive skill to realize that when she killed the Yoma that looked like her father, it actually ''was'' her father, then resorted to cannibalism on her father's corpse to survive (she was quarantined and everyone assumed she was a Yoma who killed her family). From there, she deluded herself into thinking that she was raped by an evil Yoma instead because the truth can basically be summed up as "your father was driven insane and wanted to kill eat you, and then ''you'' killed him and ate him and went insane'' and that is basically stress city]]. Yeesh.

** [[spoiler:Nightmare Eclipse, the ''true'' BigBad of [[BadFuture Dark World]]]] has this problem. [[spoiler:She has a ''very'' good reason for hating Discord (namely she's the original Dark World Twilight Sparkle who spent a thousand years his brainwashed, murderous {{Dragon}} and he took everything from her), the problem is she's developed the mentality of 'me and everyone associated with me is good, Discord and everything associated with him is irredeemably evil.' This includes ''Dark World itself'', meaning she has absolutely no compulsions about erasing the whole thousand year period and condemning everyone in it to Oblivion as part of her GroundhogDayLoop revenge scheme. She's this to such a degree that by the end, her and Discord's sides on the 'black and white' scale of ''flipped'' without her noticing: Discord has long since realized what a monster he was and would gladly ''stop'' being one, but Eclipse is ''forcing'' him to remain an EvilOverlord so she can keep punishing him over and over again.]]

* In ''Literature/IronDruidChronicles'', the Hammers of God have very clear lines on what constitutes good magic (i.e. the faith type they practice) and what is evil magic (i.e. pretty much anything else). And deal with practitioners of "evil" magic AsTheGoodBookSays (i.e. Suffer not a witch to live). [[spoiler: Though in ''Staked'' it's revealed that Atticus managed to make them see the error of their zealotry, and to allow some grey to creep into their worldview.]]



* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', Nale divides people into law-obeying and law-breaking. In his eyes, only the law-obeying are allowed to live in peace; the law-breaking, regardless of the severity of their crime, must be punished with death, because to spare them is to invite recidivism.

her power (she's a LivingLieDetector) lends itself for neatly arranging people into law-obeying "true" and law-breaking. In his eyes, only "false", stating that she's too focused on it to see the law-obeying are allowed to live in peace; the law-breaking, regardless of the severity of their crime, must be punished with death, reasons behind truthfulness or falseness. Safi retorts by telling him that she can't do that because to spare them is to invite recidivism.[[Series/{{House}} everybody lies]].

* Eren Yeager, the protagonist of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. Considering the complex and morally grey world he lives in, it more often than not causes him problems. As a child, he brutally killed a pair of murderers and justified it by stating they were merely "animals that looked like humans". As a teenager, he reacts to {{Tragic Villain}}s expressing remorse by exploding into a rage and stating they are inhuman monsters not allowed to feel emotions. When confronted by situations that are morally complicated, he tends to either freeze up or get [[UnstoppableRage angry]]. It makes his attempts to understand [[spoiler:Annie's reasons for killing people]] [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness all the more shocking]]. For whatever reason, he cannot simply dehumanize [[spoiler:Annie]] like he does to other villains.

However, given how ugly and bleak the world he lives in is, it's easy to see how he would develop such a mentality, and sometimes, he's downright on the mark. The "animals disguised as humans" he killed could hardly be called anything but. They killed Mikasa's father and mother(In her case, one of the gang objected, but only because she would've fetched a good price on the slave market) and planned to sell the child Mikasa as a sex slave.
