[[spoiler:Subverted in that he only pretends to kill her to create cover for her escape, using a pile of meat transmuted into a fake carcass as a decoy Ross, and thus does not do anything evil.

* ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'': There was a kids' EU series titled "The Glove of Darth Vader" and it was about the eponymous glove as a MementoMacGuffin. Presumably the bad guy made this gesture some more after he found it. It was actually turned into a literal ArtifactOfDoom with some installed circuitry that allowed the user to fake Force lightning, at the expense of burning his hand and ongoing nerve damage that rendered him blind. Naturally he refused to take it off anyway, although he did have the circuitry removed.

** Of course, it is perfectly reasonable for the judge to don menacing gloves since [[spoiler:it is revealed later that he is a toon himself and the glove is for his protection...]]
*** [[spoiler:Given the chemicals stated to be present in Dip, a normal human would get nasty chemical burns putting their hand in it as well, so this isn't exactly telling on Doom's part. Heck, even standing in the presence of the stuff would likely cause severe tissue damage to the linings of the lungs.]]
