* Invoked by [[TheCalilgula High Lord Kalarus]] in the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' while besieging the city of Ceres. In order to lure out the city's defenders who have holed up in the fortified center, he has his men attack orphanages ''and'' a street where retired ''legionares'' are living out their pensions. It works; as one character points out, no matter how stoic or cynical one may be there's only so many times one can see a child or elder killed before it becomes too much to bear.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': On at least one occasion [[OmnicidalManiac Judge Death]] went on a killing spree in an orphan shelter, and later, a ''maternity ward'' in a bet to lure Judge Anderson into a trap and kill her, knowing that she would immediately race to the children's rescue.

** His colleague Judge Fire gained his name when he burned down an elementary school with eighteen hundred students inside ([[AllCrimesAreEqual on the basis of "noise pollution"]]) even before they all became undead monsters.

What can be more completely and pointlessly evil? Burning the orphanage, of course! Besides, burning harmless orphans have an enjoyable smell.
