This character can be a major BaseBreaker and cause [[FlameBait massive conflicts]] not just in his fictional world, but he can also possibly in real life. On one extreme side extremist defenders might hold them up as a cause celebre and [[UnfortunateImplications defend real life instances of torture, police brutality or whatever form of atrocity he's inflicting upon his victims]] because they're AcceptableTargets, because he's the DesignatedHero, or both. On the other extreme, you can have people who will group together everyone from the most remorseful and reluctant to the most unhinged and sociopathic and claim [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity that they're all insane and any portrayals of them in any remotely positive light are inexcusable apologia]], and who generally feel justified to ignore or condemn any in-universe or RealLife ShootTheDog moments or DirtyBusiness regardless of merit.

* ''SinCity'''s Marv not only does this to criminals but he loves it. There is an entire monologue in his first story about how much he enjoys what he's doing.

Added DiffLines:

** While Stabler is the usual offender, when Rollins gets wounded and the son of Finn's former supervisor gets killed by an unknown assassin, it's treated as perfectly justified when Finn and Amaro go to a prison and torture the drug kingpin they suspect of ordering the hit, to the point of Finn being about [[EyeScream to gouge his eyes out]]...and the only thing that stops them is when the warden shows up to inform them the drug dealer's wife was just killed by the same assassin. They then move on like nothing had happened. In other words, [[SarcasmMode it's perfectly fine to torture somebody over a crime he didn't even commit, because he actually did commit a whole bunch of other crimes before that]].

* Joel from TheLastOfUs won't hesitate to brutally torture {{Mooks}} for information after [[spoiler:Ellie gets imprisoned by David's gang]]. It's heavily implied he's quite experienced in the JackBauerInterrogationTechnique.

** Drogyn The Battlebrand, an immortal warrior on the side of good who acts as jailer to The Old Ones, casually admits he tortured a demon who attacked him late in season 5. This was to find out who sent it, and the demon was from a race of assassins so it's not considered an immoral act on Drogyn's part.[[spoiler:InvokedTrope as the employer was Angel, who was pretending to be evil, knew Drogyn would both defeat and torture the demon for the information, and wanted the information passed to his friends.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The ComicBook/TheSpectre is known for torturing villains before killing them [[DeathByIrony in ironic ways]]. However, it's frequently brought up in-universe that [[WhatTheHellHero most other superheroes disagree with his methods]] and he's normally presented in a morally ambiguous light.

** [[PayEvilUntoEvil (Almost) Always limit their uses of it to villains or "bad people".]] Cases where they do this to an innocent or good person are nigh on nonexistant, and most of those tend to have some sort of justification (which can still [[DesignatedHero fall flat if handled wrong).]]
