* Played for humor in Creator/RobertSheckley's short story, "Triplication", where a man is in court for burning down an orphanage. His lawyer explains that on the planet Altira III, orphanages are used for training assassins, and his client has probably saved thousands or millions of innocent lives. The charges are dismissed. A few years later, the guy is back in court, and again, he has a good excuse for burning down an orphanage, and gets off. It isn't until the third time, after he burns down an orphanage on Earth, that the truth comes out: he simply ''likes'' burning orphanages.

* 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.

** 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.
