* 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.

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

This is very, ''very'' rarely positive; the only way it can be is if it's an OrphanageOfFear, particularly if the fire-setter is someone who lived and suffered there, and if the character took pains to make sure that everyone got out alive. Then again, such an act is sometimes used as a BloodbathVillainOrigin in which case the character may not be too concerned about who gets out alive (particularly if the [[KidsAreCruel other kids were cruel to them]]), and the [[EvilOrphanageLady management]] usually makes it so some of the orphans are unable to escape the fire.
