** Witch philosophy as a whole runs like this: if you kill your foe, your foe is dead and that's that. If you ''beat'' your foe, but let them live, then your foe is beat and knows they've been beat, and they'll know it for the rest of their life, and there's no point in beating a foe if they won't be around to know they've been beat afterward.

This is explicitly given as one of the reasons for the setting's UnequalRites; when one young witch learns a bit of simple Wizard combat magic (which is based on killing your enemy before kills you) her peers can't see the point of it.

* Attempted by Lysa Arryn in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. When her prisoner, Tyrion Lannister, wins his TrialByCombat, Lysa is forced to release him... so she orders him to be escorted to the Kingsroad, where he will be at the mercy of bandits.

[[spoiler: This ends up backfiring on her badly. He has the bandit tribes (up to that point only a threat to small groups of travelers) united and armed with military-grade gear, then points them right back at her.]]

* Towards the end of the ''War Within'' -quest in ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'', the player is given a choice [[spoiler:to either kill one of the Twin Queens, order Tenshin to do the dirty work or just let her be. Even though sparing her [[KarmaMeter gives the player alignment points towards the Sun]] (representing mercifulness and empathy as opposed to the ruthless and cruel Moon options), it's arguably even more cruel than killing her outright because without the scepter that allowed her to BodySwap, she is doomed to suffer a slow, lingering death in her decaying body.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' has been billed as a game about assassination in which you don't actually have to kill anyone. You can do a full PacifistRun, but the targets still need to be "neutralized" in some way or another. There's a non-lethal option for dealing with each individual target, which is often a FateWorseThanDeath and possibly quite ironic. It's enough that PlayerCharacter Corvo Attano has become [[Pantheon/MentalismIntermediateGods the god of Cruel Mercy]].

* Dr. Weil's punishment in the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' series for starting the Elf Wars is to be converted into an unaging cyborg and be exiled to wander the wastes created by the destruction the Elf Wars caused. Seeing as he eventually went on to become the shadow dictator of Neo Arcadia and the BigBad of the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series, this probably wasn't the best idea.

** However, in Brotherhood Machiavelli [[WhatTheHellHero chews out Ezio]] for leaving Rodrigo alive since after all's said and done, the Borgia are still in power and are still major threats to the Assassins. In fact, it leads to Rodrigo's son Cesare leading an assault on Monteriggioni and killing his uncle Mario. Ezio later states that because of this, he's not going to make the same mistake twice.
